The Starlost
Search for 'The Starlost' on Amazon


Notes:
Perhaps one of the greatest Nova stories, 'The Starlost' features the confrontation between Supernova and Nova. Returning to Earth in his dimension-spanning search of Nebula, Supernova (insane from his power) senses the Nova Force in Rich Rider and begins an all-out war to steal it. In order to save lives, Rich sacrifices his powers and his life to Supernova. However, he is brought back by the former heralds of Galactus, Airwalker and Firelord. The heralds are also former Xandarians and agree to help stop Supernova. Supernova captures Rich and takes him to the ruins of Xandar as part of a plan to restore the destroyed domed cities. On Xandar, the Living Computers begin the revival process. Queen Adora is cloned and awaits the arrival of the Nova Force contained in Supernova and in the spirit of Rich Rider. During Nebula's attack, Adora and the Protector made contingency plans if Xandar was destroyed. Garthan Saal was given the physical power of the Nova Force while Rich Rider (unknown to him) contained its spirit. When the entire Nova Force was brought together in the same dimension, the Living Computers would reactivate and Adora cloned. As Supernova and Rich arrive at Xandar, the two beings merge into a powerful energy form which is the full essence of the Nova Force. However, it is Rich Rider's spirit who now controls the energy form! Rich releases the energy into the Living Computers and the Xandar is alive once more just as Adora and the Protector planned! In gratitude, Adora restores the Nova powers to Rich and even enhances them as he resumes his position of Centurion Nova-Prime!
