8/7/00 NOVA - A DEFENDER?
A recently released head-shot drawing of the new Defenders included a shot of Nova. I asked Kurt Busiek (Avengers, Astro City) and Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon) if the drawing meant that Nova might be a Defender.

Busiek: "Erik felt like drawing him, so he drew him, on the same piece of paper he did the cornerbox head shots in. Nova's not on the team. Sorry."

Larsen: "I just felt like drawing Nova. He'll show up at some point, I'm sure but at this time, there's no plans to have him join the team."

6/23/00 KURT BUSIEK ON XANDAR IN MAX. SECURITY!
I asked Kurt Busiek (Avengers, Astro City) if the long-hinted Xandarian invasion of Earth and/or Nova would be part of his upcoming mini-series, Maximum Security. His answer:
"I can't say for sure what role Xandar and Nova will play, in part because I like to keep secrets and in part because given the set-up for MAXIMUM SECURITY, even if I'm not using Nova, other writers certainly could.

So I don't want to give anything away, and I don't want to list which aliens are going to be involved in the story. But I will say it's wide-open and anything's possible.

If Erik Larsen were still writing a Marvel book at the moment, it'd be a virtual lock, but well, you never know."

4/4/00 KURT BUSIEK ON NOVA!
I asked Kurt Busiek (Avengers, Astro City) about the identities of the alternate Novas in Avengers Forever #11-#12. His answer:
"At the risk of blowing my rep for anal-retentive attention to detail, I have no idea. I asked Carlos to put Nova in somewhere, because it strikes me as sensible that he'd eventually be an Avenger, but we didn't work it out beyond that."
