    I wasn't aware Captain Britain was a mini – that's too bad, as it's quite good.

      My fault. It was launched as a tie-in, but is now continuing as it's own series. I'll correct that.

    Another (more minor) correction – Richard Ryder's the last survivor of the Nova Corps, not the StarCorps.And a comment – while difficult to say much without risking spoilers, it's still possible that SHE-HULK will be more critical to the series (though admittedly unlikely at this point). Certainly, the fact that it's a book that's been featuring a Skrull character with some interesting capabilities and family ties allows for that possibility. As far as impact on the overall plot, it's probably as significant as the Runaways/Young Avengers mini.

      They were renamed the StarCorps when they reformed. Ryder is a Nova Centurian of the Xandarian StarCorps. And I spoke to Peter David about She-Hulk so I'm fairly fine with my assessment.

      And his name is Rider, not Ryder. This is copied from Marvel.com's own file on Nova."Rider was the only StarCorps member to survive the Wave's surprise attack, and has become the bearer of the entire Nova-Force …"

        That's what I get for relying on memory, I guess!

          Don't worry about it at all. The Nova Corp/StarCorps thing is understandable since even in the comics, some folks still call it the Nova Corps. Just to avoid confusion (and since it's the same group anyway) I'm re-typing it as Nova Corps. :-)
