Secret Avengers #3

Secret Avengers #3 - Comic of the Day
It's been quite a while since the days of the New Warriors. The young team was comprised of mostly lower level superheroes such as Night Thrasher and Speedball, but they also had the future break out star Nova. Nova is a character with great power that was pushed into the spot light again just a few years back when the space-type wars and characters started up. Nova has been a powerful ally on the side of good who often isn't seen for how powerful he is when heavy weights like the Silver Surfer, Galactus and Thanos are around.

Thanks to Ed Brubaker's Secret Avengers ongoing we get to see Nova compared to lower level heroes such as Moon Knight, and even some higher level heroes like Valkyrie. In the comic of the day, Secret Avengers #3, we get to see Nova in action. Granted he is wearing a weird alien hat which increases his powers...wait, he always has a weird alien hat...anyway. Nova is able to mess up some intergalactic robot protector made by a Watcher who is designed to be able to beat anyone with the weird hat on (not the weird yellow Nova hat). Nova's added power is too great for the protector and we get to see just how sick Nova can be when compared to Captain America, Asgardian or Watcher-bot.
