Note: He flies, he’s super-invulnerable, and he’s gone toe-to-toe with everyone from Terrax to Galactus to the Dark Phoenix. He’s Nova. Created in 1976 by Marv Wolfman and John Buscema as a space-age homage to the plucky working-class hero Spider-Man, he’s gone on to be one of the leading stars in Marvel’s cosmic adventures. Whether you’re a fan of Richard Rider, the all-new Sam Alexander, or one of the various other members of the Nova Corps, Nova is someone worth talking about — and someone more than deserving of a Fan-Art Friday. Artists of all style, variety and skill level are encouraged to send us your rendition of the Human Rocket. For this Fan-Art Friday, the deadline for submissions is Tuesday, October 30 at 8am Eastern time. Email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To get you inspired, below is Shane McDermott‘s mythic rendition of Nova. – Chris A.
