New Marvel Show Can Introduce Powerful Young Avenger Missing From The MCU

  • Marvel Studios' Nova series could introduce Sam Alexander instead of Richard Rider.
  • Sam Alexander's Nova would be a fantastic addition to the MCU's upcoming Young Avengers team.
  • Marvel Studios has been slow setting up the Young Avengers, but the team must come together soon, particularly after The Marvels' tease.
Marvel Studios' upcoming Nova series on Disney+ could introduce another powerful member of the teased Young Avengers team in the MCU. Since the beginning of the Multiverse Saga with 2021's WandaVision, Marvel Studios has introduced several potential members of MCU's Young Avengers team, including the likes of Ms. Marvel's Kamala Khan, Hawkeye's Kate Bishop, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania's Cassie Lang. However, there are still several members of the young superhero team from Marvel Comics that haven't appeared in the MCU, but Marvel Studios' much-anticipated upcoming projects could change that.
In the absence of the Avengers following 2019's Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios has teased the introduction of several different superhero groups, including the likes of the antiheroic Thunderbolts, the supernatural Midnight Sons, and the Fantastic Four. The ending of 2023's The Marvels featured the first major tease towards the formation of the Young Avengers in the MCU, as Kamala Khan approached Kate Bishop with the prospect of bringing together a new superhero team. Setup for the Young Avengers has been slow, but the team may soon receive another powerful new member in one upcoming MCU TV series.

Marvel's Nova Show Should Follow Sam Alexander Instead Of Richard Rider Marvel Studios confirmed the development of a Disney+ series focused on Marvel Comics' cosmic hero, Nova, in March 2022, revealing that Sabir Pirzada would be penning the script. Pirzada previously worked on Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel, which became two of the most popular installments in the MCU's Phase 4, so Marvel Studios' Nova is surely in safe hands. Recent changes in Marvel Studios' release mandate and TV production have left Nova's fate uncertain, however, but recent speculation suggests the upcoming series could introduce a different version of the titular hero than audiences may be expecting.
Richard Rider was the first character to assume the role of Nova in Marvel Comics, introduced as a regular high school student who evolved into the Nova Corps' signature superhero after the destruction of the cosmic organization. While Richard Rider was expected to be the focus of Marvel Studios' Nova series, recent speculation suggests the series may actually focus on Sam Alexander, a 16-year-old Arizonian who became Nova after learning his father worked for the Nova Corps. Focusing on Sam Alexander would give Nova a similar feel to Ms. Marvel, introducing yet another young superhero to the MCU.
Richard Rider became Nova in Marvel Comics' The Man Called Nova #1 in 1976, while Sam Alexander took over the role in 2011's Marvel Point One #1.
The MCU Needs To Build Out Its Young Avengers Team Close Sam Alexander being introduced in Marvel Studios' Nova series would introduce another crucial piece of the MCU's Young Avengers puzzle. Setup for the Young Avengers has been very slow in the Multiverse Saga, with the most recent feature film in the MCU, The Marvels, delivering the first overt tease towards the team. With the MCU hurtling towards Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars in Phase 6, Marvel Studios would benefit from solidifying the Young Avengers team, as while several potential members have been teased, only three young heroes have currently been confirmed to be a part of the group.

While The Marvels seemed to confirm Kamala Khan, Kate Bishop, and Cassie Lang as the first three members of the MCU's Young Avengers team, the other potential team members haven't yet been recruited. Some of these heroes, including Kid Loki, Skaar, Eli Bradley, Love, and America Chavez, haven't even been confirmed to be returning to the MCU, so Marvel Studios must begin making moves to officially bring the Young Avengers together. There are still several members of the Young Avengers from Marvel Comics that haven't joined the MCU, but a very powerful iteration of the team has been set up.
Why Sam Alexander Would Be Perfect For The MCU's Young Avengers Team Sam Alexander's access to the Nova Force makes him an incredibly formidable cosmic hero, so he would be a huge asset to the MCU's Young Avengers team. In Marvel Comics, Sam Alexander fought alongside Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales' Spider-Man, and Ironheart, and others, as the Champions, and this team could be folded into the Young Avengers in the live-action MCU. Marvel Studios' Nova series focusing on Sam Alexander instead of Richard Rider would debut a hero young enough to lead the MCU's cosmic stories for years to come, and provide a huge power boost to the budding Young Avengers team.
