With the entire knowledge and experiences of the Xandarian culture, as well as the full power of the Nova Force at his disposal, Richard Rider becomes Nova Prime. Nova Prime, along with Drax and Cammi leave what remains of Xandar and speed to the next star system, once there, they find Quasar, wielder of the Quantum Bands assisting in the exodus of one of its star system planets.
