In the latest edition of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 they’ve added the Marvel superhero Nova. If you hadn’t heard of Nova before, it’s okay, I hadn’t either. The character got his start in 1976 as Richard Rider who was chosen by an alien race called the Xanadarian Rhomann Dey to become a Nova Corps soldier. During the Annihilation Wave the corp is destroyed but Rider absorbs their powers and becomes Nova. Now, he is guided by the Worldmind computer and wages a one-man war for justice.
There’s a tons more backstory (there always is with DC and Marvel heroes) but that should give you a gist of who Nova is.
So here’s a question, does anyone else hear him shout “DONKEY PUNCH” during this trailer?
Look for Nova in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 17th, 2011. The Playstation Vita version will hit stores sometime in 2012.
