== Personal Information ==Legal Name:
Samuel Alexander Alias:
HeterosexualPart of New York Residing In:
With his mom and sister in Carefree, Az sometimes stays in the Avengers Tower
== Physical Description ==
Sam is about 5’11 in height, with a lean and athletic frame earned through moderate, regular exercise because hey it’s good to bring a little more to the table than a magic helmet. He has a rather handsome face, framed by dark, tousled hair kept short with bright piercing blue eyes.
== Persona ==
Before gaining the Black Nova helmet of his father Sam was a typical high schooler, he was reasonably intelligent but didn’t particularly excel in school due to lack of interest in academia. Instead his time was spent playing video games, listening to music, skateboarding and of course helping his drunk of a father clean the school because he was too drunk to do his damn job. One of these things he hated even more than school though, I’ll leave you to guess which. Of course that changed. So yea fairly typical teen, but when he put on the Black Nova helmet and became Nova, not much changed, he was still the same slightly goofy teenager he always was just that he instead filled his time with saving people and becoming the world’s coolest superhero.
Like it says above Sam was a typical high school student growing up in the small boring town of Carefree, Arizona. He resented his drunk of a father, mainly because he was left to clean up after his messes, in some cases quite literally. He had grown up listening to his father’s tales of fighting aliens, traveling through space and saving the galaxy. As a child he loved him, as a teen he felt it was pathetic, telling him these stories as if silly fantasies would give him any more respect for the man, what was worth was that half the time he seemed like he actually believed the stories he was telling him. How pathetic was that? Of course that all changed when he woke up in his hospital bed with an annoying racoon and a smoking hot green lady standing at the edge of his bed. Being the cool headed and tough kid he was he did the only obvious thing, run away screaming and find the nearest adult. Of course then he brought them back they were nowhere to be found. Instead he found his dads Nova helmet sitting under his bed glowing an intense blue and as soon as he put it on he saw his dad giving it his best princess Leia impression. It was from then on that he became the great and powerful Nova, and began his superhero career. Well not really career because apparently members of the Nova Corp weren’t paid, and it didn’t really take off to well, allot of ups and down. But he helped where he could, be it fighting off chitauri invasions single handed or rebuilding skate parks he may have destroyed. In fact he was even quickly invited to join the avengers so that was pretty damn cool for a high school student.
== Key Skills == Flight:
As Nova, Sam is able to fly at great speeds beyond escape velocity and past lightspeed. Able to fly from galaxy to galaxy under his own power.Energy Manipulation:
Like most Novas, Sam is able concentrate the power of the Nova Force into a beam or a ball of energy and fire it from his hands. He can also utilize the energies he generates to create protective or reflective force fields, power star-ships, focus it into an energy razor capable of decimating ships, amplify his own striking power by covering blows in nova force energy or even his whole body with said energy to strike like a cannon round, detect and remove toxic elements within a living being, and much like his predecessor; the ability to create hyperspace portals which shorten the distance between different points in the universe. Superhuman Strength:
Sam has access to the same strength as that of a centurion from the Nova Corps. Possibly more since he has the share hold of the Nova Force Within his helmet, he helped Beta Ray Bill stabilize a descending cargo ship the size of a city and carried around a boulder of condensed solid gold created from the heart of a supernova. Superhuman Speed:
Can move at incredible velocities even while running, concentrating his speed mostly on flight though, but more than able to move through the galaxy and back to earth with utmost ease.Superhuman Durability:
As a Nova Sam has an uncanny amount of resistance to abrasion and concussive force, having once been knocked halfway across the world by Hulk's evil Kluh persona and only suffering a concussion, having come out of a portal and re-entered Earth's atmosphere from deep space, and taken concussive blasts from incredibly powerful entities, relics, and war engines. Xandarian Worldmind:
His helmet carries the remnants of what's left of the Nova Corps' Xandarian Worldmind, as such through the device Sam is bestowed a plethora of unique attributes through its usage.
- Universal Translation: The helmet can make any alien species' language appear to him as English.
- Cosmic Awareness: Sam's Nova helmet flashes him different colors to depict different scenarios. It also allows him knowledge of most situations going on near him.
- Enhanced Intellect: Through the helmet's Worldmind Sam gains a vast increase in congnative capacity, filling his mind with knowlegde and understanding about the universe as a whole and the scores of countless alien societies and cultures living within it.
- Hardlight Holographic Projection: Sam has shown he can use a combination of the Nova Force and the Xandarian Worldmind to create convincing visual displays.
- Cosmic Atlas: The helmet acts as a universal positioning system that enables Samuel to find his way around the galaxy as well as discern the location of just about anything the helmet picks up on like fallen nova sightings, distress signals, and foreign elements in a living body.
- Affiliate Recognition: Able to discern certain individuals from around the universe and their current affiliations.
