Characters Appearing: Andrew Chord, Firestar, Hindsight Lad, Nova (Rich Rider), Rage, Sphinx, Sprocket
Issue(s): Nova #6
Nova is in an alternate future where he's failed the now-mutated locals.
He was also a member of the Avengers. He meets the version of himself from this reality.
As with Night Thrasher, Rage is dealing with a slavery scenario. This time we are in Africa with people being pressed into slavery.
The "twist" is that the people were sold into slavery by their own people.
Fabian Nicieza has done a lot of Both Sidesism in his treatment of race issues, but i never thought he'd Both Sides slavery. Yes, it's a historical fact that some slaves were sold by other Africans, but Jesus Christ. (If anyone is really confused about this, you might start here; i really don't want to see it debated on this site. At a minimum, take it to the forum.)
Firestar is at the Salem Witch Trials in 1692. People try to burn her as a witch, but she's Firestar so that doesn't work out.
She's then rescued by Agatha Harkness, who in turn wants help from her.
In a short segment at the end, Hindsight Lad suggests to Chord and Sprocket that they recruit the characters that Night Thrasher was considering as a B-Team.
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: This is part three of Time and Time Again. Part four is in New Warriors #48.
Crossover: Time and Time Again
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
The Nova story follows up on Nova's previous meeting with Nova 0:0 from Nova 4, so that should be listed as a Reference.
