It really isn't, though. I've been following this from the beginning of the series. It should be this big epic cosmic tale. But it just seems like a plain, paint-by-the-numbers story.

Does anyone know if this is mainstream Earth-616 continuity? Marvel cinematic continuity? or some strange hybrid?

I thought I read that it was supposed to be an in continuity thing, but weren't Drax and Starlord killed in the Thanos Imperative storyline, along with Thanos being transported to some unknown place, or the Cancerverse?

That is a VERY good point. How the hell did Thanos get out of the Cancerverse?

Very good question. I was wondering the exact same thing when he first appeared but then I started thinking that this series might follow the movie continuity. Then again there might be some untold stories around Thanos and the Cancerverse we've yet to be given.

Rocket and Cosmo also broke up the Guardians at the end of Thanos Imperative since so many had left or died. I really thought the 'Annihilators' follow up was cool.

Plus with Star Lord and Thanos back, why/how do we have a new Nova since Richard Rider was stuck in the Cancerverse with them.

There's more than one Nova. It's an entire corps like the Green Lantern Corps.

There was, but they all went bye bye. Richard Rider was Nova Prime and the last Nova.

He tried to recreate the Nova Corps, but that kind of flopped. Kind of like when Kyle Rayner tried to recreate the GL Corps and.....wait a minute.....it's the same freakin' story....

I did drop off reading Nova after about issue #20. But last I read, Richard Rider had recreated the Nova Corps. The Worldmind got infected and corrupted them, but then Richard Rider fixed all that. His little brother even became Earth's official Nova while Nova went back out into space to confront the War of Kings that was brewing.

So I flipped through them a bit and MOST of the corps is destroyed by Ego and the Worlmind, while the remaining few are to be trained by Rider who was Nova Prime again and had contained the Worldmind (as Ko-Rel).

When Rider was left behind in the Cancerverse the regular universe was cut off from the Nova Force leaving no Nova Corps.

They completely disregarded everything Abnett and Lanning wrote for the Cosmic side of the Marvel universe when they were writing this series.

No one seems to know what continuity this takes place in, as Bendis doesn't pay any heed to continuity in the first place.

It's an alternate Marvel Universe where Death itself was killed. Due to that, the universe became overpopulated because nothing died anymore. They started invaded the mainstream Marvel Universe in "Thanos Imperative", which was stopped by Thanos, Nova, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and other cosmic characters. Nova (Richard Rider) and Thanos was last seen stranded within the Cancerverse and Nova was presumed dead.

MARVEL doesn't pay any heed to continuity. Nothing in this company makes any sense anymore.

And Star-Lord, as well.

This all took place in the Thanos Imperative storyline that came out just a couple of years ago.

Interesting...sorta. I missed out on a lot of the cosmic stuff.

Considering it is the Cancerverse, Nova likely isn't dead, though.
