First Look at Nova Costume!
Marvel Studios indisputably confirmed this past weekend that the Nova Corps would be in Guardians of the Galaxy, which means that someone must have read my List of Six about the things I want to see in the movie. Nova Corps was #2 on my list. So I am very, very excited about this confirmation.
For those who don’t know, the Nova Corps are intergalactic space cops. Using the rocket-like power of the Nova Force, they patrol the cosmos ensuring law and order. They’re pretty much a knock-off of the Green Lantern Corps from over at DC Comics, but something tells me Guardians of the Galaxy is going to be a much better movie than Green Lantern. Just a hunch.
Unfortunately, as excited as I am to see the Nova Corps on screen, I am less than thrilled at their costumes. Join me after the jump to see the uniforms in all their glory!
The costumes look pretty accurate to the Nova Corps in the comics, but they have been tweaked. Now they look more like stereotypical ‘future cop’ uniforms. They look like Judge Dredd.
Don’t get me wrong, I also kind of like the look. They’ve got the Nova symbol on the front, the blue uniforms, and the tough helmets. But it’s not as…colorful or cosmic as the Nova uniform in the comics. The helmets aren’t a bright, dazzling gold, for example. I think that look could have transferred over. But Marvel wanted to make things a little more serious, it seems. I can understand their decision, but I’m not behind it 100%. The reason I love the idea of the Green Lantern Corps so much is because they’re also intergalactic space cops, but they don’t look anything like what you’d expect intergalactic space to look like. These Nova costumes look exactly like what you’d expect intergalactic space cops to look like.
Of course, once we see it in action, it might be an entirely different story.
What do you guys and gals think of the costume? Do you like it? Hate it? How do you feel about the Novas being in the movie in the first place? Sound off in the comments!
