Nova #1 2013

Hi world,

 

So it’s sets you with up with a dad telling a story to a son who doesn’t really feel like this is correct time for a fairy tale.But this isn’t just any story this is a story in which the dad is a part of, based seventeen years ago before he settled down.It throws you into the frey of a rescue mission in another galaxy to save Rocket Raccoon and Gamora ,from Guardians of the Galaxy.It sets up that these people. are either the Black Novas or the Super Novas(or maybe those are the same) and that their enemies are the Gold Domes.So what I’m guessing is the Nova group is kind of like the Green Latern Corp.,maybe.During this story the kid is a little overly-critical, like he’s interrupting his dad to tell his slang is off,who says peachy anymore,like really.The dad puts himself in danger to save his friends,but doesn’t die and in the in is saved by another Nova.

Now push yourself through time,to sixteen and a half year later,our hero is now throwing up ,into a toilet as his teenage son looks on unimpressed.This former Nova has his son help him to a bed in the garage/shed as he mumbles about what should happen if the other nova’s come back for him.You get a nice shot of the helmet(that you saw him wearing in the story),which has probably been in there for a decade or more.The son walks into the house and tells his mom that he has successfully walked his dad back home and done his dad’s job for him.Let’s be honest this guy is looking like the worst father of the year ever,the mom’s trying to explain to him how’s his father’s just having a hard time right now.But he’s having none of that,his mom is just about to reprimand him as his little sister walks in.Giving him a chance to escape from his mom and go to bed.

The Next Day

Ok, sidenote this kids high school’s name is CareFree High School…..their towns name is CareFree…….Anyway while skating in school a bully makes sure to knock him down, while making fun of our main character, because his dad is the schools janitor.This is broken up by the principle who proceeds to tell him in no certain words that his dad is a looser and will be fired if he keeps missing work.Also he tells Alexander,that’s his last name,to ‘get a helmet’.Side note why are all the adults in the story so garbage.What kind of adults discusses another adult with a child especially if that adult is the kids father…. and the dad…. anyway lets continue.After school a girl(insert stereotypical high school pretty punk girl) is like I know that you do your dads job for him ,if you need any help…..and he ends up telling her what I think is his greatest worry, that he’ll never leave that small town and will end up being just like his dad.

Let’s go back to our nova’s but this time only fifteen years ago,and this time the daughter is the one hearing the story and unlike her brother she likes these stories.They have taken a recorder from the Regillians(I don’t know who they are either,bad guys*shrug*) who are tearing their ship apart.Being the fact that the dad broke regulation and got married(I’m guessing that they must be single ,you know, just in case they die they won’t leave a family behind?Harsh)Anyway they tell him,Jessie, to go home,we end this story when he tells them he’ll be back with help as soon as possible.The story takes up back to present time, Jesse telling his daughter that he made it just in time to see Alexander’s birth.Alex is just looking in the background rolling his eyes, talking raccoons and green women, Sam(the son) is tired of his dad,and his stories and he just can’t understand how his sister can hold him such high esteem.

The next day we go back to the school and for some reason the bathroom is roped off,I guess it’s unusuably dirty,IDK I’ve never seen a high school bathroom roped off.Anyway the bully from the beginning is like well,I guess it’ s up to you to clean it Alex,tries to hit him, misses(of coarse) and gets suspended. He goes the garage/shed where his dad usually is to blame his dad for getting suspended, but not only is his dad not there but there is a hole in the shed,Alex is like you’re not going to run out on us.And quickly skateboards out(he skateboards everywhere) in which his board hits a pebble and sends him head first into the ground(Fast Forward Three Days)He wakes up partially each him time seeing someone different the last time he hears people before seeing them.

Pulling back the screen it’s Gamora and Rocket,wanted to know where his father is.

End scene

I liked this introduction much better than Spider Man 2099 because they actually, you know introduced me to the character,I got to meet him,see his life a little.I got to learn his temperament,it’s not great but considering that he’s a fifteen year old who has to clean up his own his school because his dad is drunk and stuck in a dream world that’s fake,that would make anyone a little sour.

 

Have a great day,

What would it be like to live inside the Marvel Universe?

So,you imagine yourself living a life in a comic world,ok,….

 

So let’s start of with Mutants.Yep it could be one fifth of the population maybe one tenth, no one can be quite sure of the numbers.So you could have been born a mutant,which is awesome,maybe.You could have been born with these awesome powers.So it’s awesome, kinda,but you gotta realize some people are going to hate you just because your a mutant.Also there is a possibility that your powers could make you blue or green,and there is no doubt that you’ll have to have help in learning how to control them.You could have a had a hard time, but maybe you’ll find your perfect balance and hide who you are from the rest of the world.Or maybe you join the X-Men,or maybe you’ll be kidnapped by the government for experiments ,who’s to say. On the other hand you can be a  regular human with no powers,the dangerous thing is,there are mutants who hate you, and think your lesser because your not  a mutant.Some of them have been hurt so by humans that they feel this way.Others just see you as less just because.

The Gods.

Oh yeah don’t forget about all those Norse Gods who just have to cross a bridge to get into this realm….

The dangers of being a scientist

So being a scientist is a great professional,it can often be something that cause your to get powers.Such as the Sue and Richard Storm, and Bruce Banner.But here’s a warning if you are  a scientist I would recommend you to stay out of New York.There is this kid, name Peter… Peter… Peter something.But almost all the scientist he meet become super villains Morbius,Dr.Oct,the Lizard are examples of unlucky scientist who have met this photographer.

The Vampire Infestation.

Oh most people forget that Blade is a Marvel character.This Englishman has been hunting vampires since ’73.Oh yeah, Blades British kinda ruins the whole Wesley Snipes thing doesn’t it.So yeah there was even a Dracula in this universe at one time.And no one is safe from vampires.Even a mutant can be turned, Jubilee is now currently a vampire.So let’s just hope their are many organizations of vampire hunters.

Aliens

OK, Aliens are the one thing I am a little DC biased on.I think most of theirs tend  to a little more interesting.Let’s see we have the Emperial Guard(who forced the hand of our X-Men and ultimately let to the Phoenix’s suicide),Guardians of the Galaxy(I know nothing of these people) among others.To be honest I don’t know a lot about the aliens of the Marvel universe (just the basics),but be aware that they’re there.But there are two beings you should be aware that’s Norman Rad, aka the Silver Surfer.One of my favorite anti hero /super heros yet.And then there’s his master,Galactus.A lot of people like to downplay him and the Phoenix, and how powerful they are.I put them in the same  category because they are mass murders who like to consume over-sized things.The Phoenix ate a star and by doing so destroyed a whole solar systems.Galactus has ate enough planets to fill up multiple solar systems.And unlike the phoenix(though she killed herself) Galactus has been defeated but never been killed(to my knowledge.Oh yeah lets not forget the Skrulls, who secretly keep trying to overtake the earth.Those shape shifters can be quite annoying.But we do have the Watchers on our side to warn us of bad things to come from space…. yay ? Oh yeah  there’s also a whole race of alien symbiots, which are parasites who can fuse with a human, bond with a human at a cellular level, and make them do  things so they can feed of of their adrenaline of the host.The two examples of these are the Venom and Carnage.

Toxic Waste,Gamma Rays,and Radioactive Spiders

For some reason in this world things that would normally kill you, can make you a hero.For some reason there are just multiple radioactive spiders.I mean there are currently two Spider Mans ,Peter Parker and Miles Morales, not to mention Spider Woman,Spider Girl and Web Woman.And the clone of Peter Parker out their aka Spider Boy.Toxic waste and gamma rays  give people such as Bruce Banner and Matt Murdock their powers.So there a good chance that one day when your walking down the street you might be dosed with something that could give you powers.Or as said before being a scientist I feel as if you have a 1/10 chance of being a super hero.

 

Anyone can be a hero

The lovely thing is, if you have a skill and are the best at what you do, you can easily done a mask and become a hero.Some heroes in this universe have even built machines to give them the abilities,such as Tony Stark ,or just so skillful that they make it without  this kind of cash like Hawkeye.You might die,but maybe not.And if you’re bright  and are a good enough agent, you could even be recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. as spies.I mean you may not know this but Peter’s parents were agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D .Hired by Nick Furry and died after being discovered.BOOM

There’s a lot more maybe I’ll make a part two some day

 

Sincerly,
