An Interview With
Nova's creator: MARV WOLFMAN!

A Nova Prime Page Exclusive

Anyone who's a fan of Nova, and comics in general, knows the name Marv Wolfman. Mr. Wolfman has written almost every hero in the DC and Marvel universes along with creating a number of his own. He even destroyed and recreated the entire DC universe in one of comics' greatest epics - Crisis On Infinite Earths. One of his best creations is the subject of this interview. I will be forever grateful to Mr. Wolfman for sharing his insights on Nova.

1) How was Nova created?

I was publishing a fanzine called Super Adventures. It featured a hero called The Star. I had wanted to change the character. My friend, Len Wein, and I discussed the changes and I believe I came up with the idea for a character to be called Black Nova. Len came up with the costume.

2) What were the major differences between the Star, Black Nova and Nova?

There are similarities and differences. The main one is that Black Nova was an adult and Nova was a teenager. However I always felt more of a connection between them than differences which is why I used him then adapted him into Nova.

3) Is there any existing artwork or copies of Super Adventures with the Star and Black Nova that you're aware of?

Yes, there are many.

4) Were there any particular inspirations for the names of the characters (Rich Rider, Rhomann Dey, Ginger Jaye, etc) and the Nova costume?

I came up with everything concerning The Man Called Nova, but only adapted the original costume Len designed. I took off a few of the chest stars and put the starburst that was on Black Nova's belt onto his helmet. Otherwise they are the same. Len then colored the version based on what he intended the original costume to look like.

5) Were there any plot lines that were unresolved in the Nova series? For example, I remember Rich being worried about his pen pal from Brazil right before he went off to Xandar to fight in the Skrull/Xandar War.

It's been too long. I don't remember.

6) Have you read any of the work done with Nova since your series (New Warriors or the other two Nova series)? If so, do you feel he has been handled well?

I never read any of my characters once I leave them.

7) Neither of the two follow-up Nova series lasted as long as your original series. Do you feel that is due to readers' interests being different today or due to publishers not giving a book a chance to find an audience?

It may. It may also have to do with how the book was done. I don't know., There are many factors in why a book sells or doesn't.

8) Would you still like to write Nova and what would you like to do with the character?

Very much so.

9) With your extensive experience in animation, would you be interested in doing a Nova animated series? If so, what style would you have it done in (Japanese anime or American Saturday morning style or something completely different?)

I'd love to see him done in animation. After all, his flying 'comet tail' was inspired by Mighty Mouse's.

10) What's the newest Marv Wolfman projects we can look forward to?

A bunch. 10th Muse from Image. Farscape and RoboDojo from Wildstorm and The Mummy from Chaos.
