This August, the burning question will finally be answered as the shocking truth about one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes is revealed in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #18 – a tie-in to Original Sin! Superstar creators Brian Michael Bendis and Ed McGuinness team for the heart-stopping answer to the question on everyone’s mind:
What happened to Rich Rider?
“We have literally been dropping hints since the Guardians guest-starred in Avengers Assemble,” says Brian Michael Bendis in an interview with Marvel.com. “I have known exactly what we were doing with this from the moment I agreed to do the book, but I thought it would be best to slow burn the reveal.”
Nova, the Human Rocket – who once burned a bright streak across the Marvel Universe, gone in a flash. Side-by-side with Star-Lord, Richard Rider fought valiantly to save the universe from Thanos. Left sealed in a twisted and horrific version of our own universe, Richard Rider sacrificed everything to save us.
Now, the truth of that sacrifice will finally come to light! Thanos and Star-Lord miraculously reappeared, but Nova was nowhere to be found. The true story about what happened has remained a closely guarded secret between two bitter enemies. Now, thanks to the events of Original Sin, the truth is about to come out! What happened to Rich Rider in the Cancerverse? How did Star-Lord and Thanos escape their hellish imprisonment? And most importantly, why did they lie about it?
The explosive last stand of Rich Rider begins when Original Sin comes knocking in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #18!
