Nova Corps - Originally, the Nova Corps was Xandar's space militia and exploration division. It consisted of 500 soldiers ranging in rank from Corpsman up to Centurion and its leader, Centurion Nova Prime. The Corps also had a regiment of Syfon Warriors, of which Powerhouse was one. After the reformation of Xandar, the Nova Corps expanded its protective range to include the entire Andromeda Galaxy and Earth. They are also known as the Xandarian StarCorps. Queen Adora (in the role of Prime Commandant) has ultimate authority of the Nova Corps.


Rank: Centurion
Affiliation: Nova Corps
Powers: Centurions are the top tier of the Nova Corps. It is from the Centurions that the Centurion Nova Prime is normally selected. Extreme circumstances allow the Prime to circumvent the standard procedure. Their powers are the same as a Centurion Nova Prime with the exception of energy absorption, the gravimetric pulse and the electromagnetic static burst. Centurions can command standard starships and are trained to be exceptional fighters and pilots. A Centurion can lift approximately 20 tons.

Rank: Syfon Warrior
Affiliation: Nova Corps - Syfon Warrior Division
Powers: Syfon Warriors have limited access to the Nova Force. They are limited to super strength (lifting capability of 1 ton) and energy absorption. Their strength can be magnified fifty fold by siphoning a great deal of energy from any power souce, including other living beings. Syfons are extremely gifted and highly trained pilots. Syfon training is mandatory to becoming a Centurion Nova Prime.

Rank: Denarian
Affiliation: Nova Corps
Powers: Denarians are the middle tier of the Nova Corps. Denarians have access to approximately 75% of the Nova Force compared to a Centurion. They are limited to flight, speed, strength and invulnerability. A Denarian can lift approximately 15 tons.

Rank: Millennian
Affiliation: Nova Corps
Powers: Millennians have access to approximately 50% of the Nova Force compared to a Centurion. They cannot fly on their own but can use the Corps' one-man sky flyers. Millennians can lift approximately 10 tons and have limited invulnerability. They also have small photon blasters in the armbands of their uniform.

Rank: Corpsman
Affiliation: Nova Corps
Powers: Corpsman is the entry level to the Nova Corps. Graduates from the Space Academy apply to the Corps upon graduation. They have access to approximately 25% of the Nova Force compared to a Centurion. They can lift approximately 5 tons with very limited invulnerability. They also have small photon blasters in the armbands of their uniform.

Below are some of the known Nova Corps members. Unless noted, these Nova Corps members were natives of Xandar:
