Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

NAME = NOVA
SECRET IDENTITY = RICHARD RIDER

SPECIES = HUMAN
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = CRIME FIGHTER
PERSONALITY = RECKLESS

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 5

LIFE = 5

MOVE = 7
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 4
DEFENSE = 4

POINTS = 210


FORCED TO THE LIMITS
At the start of the game, place 2 gold Nova Markers in a Nova Force Pool. Before taking a turn with Nova, you may move a Nova Marker from your Nova Force Pool to this card. Add 1 to Nova's Attack number for each Nova Marker on this card, to a maximum of +2. If Nova would be destroyed by receiving wounds while there are 1 or more Nova Markers on this card, you may remove all Nova Markers on this card from the game and Nova takes no damage.

HUMAN ROCKET
Nova may attack with his normal attack at any point before, during, or after his normal move as long as he is on a space where he could end his movement. If Nova attacks a figure that was at least 2 spaces away before Nova moved this turn with his normal attack, add 1 automatic skull to whatever is rolled. Human Rocket may only be used if Nova used his normal Flying move for all of his movement this turn.

SUPER STRENGTH

FLYING

Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

Okay, think this is good to go! Some slight changes from the last time he was in the public, but still generally the same design.

New Warriors!

Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

His stats feels a LITTLE pushed to me - like, I'm thinking of New Warriors era Nova, he was kind of an idiot and didn't feel that far above other street level guys. I'd maybe go with 4 Attack and 4 Defense here? And then tweak up if needed.

There's some wording stuff: I think it should be "your Nova Pool," which sort of makes it clearer that it's one big thing all your Novas share. And upon reflection I'd go with "Nova can only use this special power if he only moved normally with his Flying special power this turn." for Human Rocket. But basic stuff, I think I'm solid on it.

I’m aiming for low 200s, 210-220 range. Definitely less effective than Spidey, but he’s also a legitimately powered individual. Compared directly to Bulldozer (190 points), he just doesn’t seem that tough, so I’m hesitant to lower his stats that much. Crime Fighter synergy may push him to a higher cost though.

I based the pool wording off of Scientist Supreme, who doesn’t specify that her Glyph pool is “your Glyph pool” but she also has the “set it aside” language that might make it clear you don’t share a pool with enemies.

I considered requiring the movement to be Flying, but wasn’t sold on it. I’ll update it that way.

This is looking great! I'm hopping on Night Thrasher as soon as I can. I'll probably hit you up for some help.

Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

Ran the Wrecking Crew through the calculator the other day and I'd estimate they're about 30-50 points undercosted apiece, so wouldn't necessarily use that as your barometer. Spidey seems like a good point of comparison, though.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

The early career teenager Spidey is just 160 points, released by Hasbro. Our 250 point take is a more experienced adult Spidey. I'd also go 4/4 stats here.

Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

The comic art in the OP here has Nova with a beard, is this design supposed to be a young teenager?

Re: The Book of Nova (Breathing Period)

My understanding was he was with the New Warriors very early in his career, doing crime fighting stuff on Earth. Then later he leaves Earth and becomes a player on the cosmic stage, at one point all the other Nova are killed off and he inherits all the Nova power. Or am I confusing two different Nova characters?

He's about college age in that cover. It was the 90s, even newborns had stubble.

Nah, that's the gist more or less, although I'd consider the New Warriors more of a mid-career thing? He was created in the 70s by Marv Wolfman and John Romita as a pretty standard Marvel hero. (He was conceived as a "new Spider-Man" of sorts.) He had a solo mag that ran for about 25 issues. Entertaining stuff, but pretty paint by numbers Marvel fare for that era.

In the 90s, he came back as part of the New Warriors, which was a team that was just a sort of mish-mash of pre-existing oddball teen heroes. (With original character Night Thrasher.) I'd say Nova was probably the most popular out of the lot at the time? He got a few solo series out of it at least.

And then yeah, 2000s era Annihilation stuff happens, and he's re-imagined as a far more powerful character, and that's the version we already have a design for.

Original flavor Nova (especially in his solo stuff) definitely had a cosmic flair to him though. He did his fair share of punching criminals in animal costumes, but he also has a fair bit of more "out-there" adventures. He goes to space every so often and his second biggest nemesis, the Sphinx, is an ancient immortal with god powers.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Idk, I'm feeling low 200s with 5/5 stats is pretty justified. He goes toe-to-toe with Venom in one issue, for example. There's not a clear winner, but they're pretty evenly-matched and knock each other around for a bit. I'm not hard sold on it, it's just one of those situations where I feel like if he ends up under 190 or so, we're underselling him a bit.
