Jeph Loeb discussed the genesis of this “Nova” revival:

“I just got finished doing a 3-year run on ’The Hulk,’ with my pal and partner Ed McGuinness. We were looking to do something else — and now Ed and I are currently working on ’Nova!'”

Loeb also gives us a sneek peek about who the new Nova is, and where he comes from:

“The basic idea is that Sam Alexander is a small-town kid living in a town that is literally called ’Carefree’…Sam’s journey leads him into the adventure of his being Nova.”
