Nova vol.1 (25 issues, 1976-1979)

The character was created by Marv Wolfman and John Buscema in Nova #1, 1976. Writer Wolfman intended the teenage character to be an homage to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's Spider-Man, down to his humble working-class roots and alliterative alter-ego. The original Nova series, The Man Called Nova lasted 25 issues, running from September 1976 to May 1979. The character mostly disappeared into obscurity for some time before returning as a member of the original New Warriors team, appearing in New Warriors (vol. 1) #1-75, Annual #1-4 (July, 1990 — September, 1996).
