Nova was introduced in Super Adventures magazine as alien doctor Denteen who could switch power every 5 minutes through pills he found in a spaceship. He was rewritten by Wolfman and Marvel artist John Romita as a member of the intergalactic police force with enhanced power and resistance to injuries.
He became part of The New Warriors and during his adventures, he met Guardians of the Galaxy.
