Samuel “Sam” Alexander is the son of former Nova Centurion, Jesse Alexander, and a Latin American gal named Eva Alexander. Jesse went missing early on in Sam’s life, so Sam skated off on his skateboard to find his father, but suffered an accident, which knocked him out cold. When he woke up in the hospital, Sam found Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket Raccoon and Gamora, at his bedside. It seems that the Guardians were also searching for Sam’s dad and his Nova helmet. Once they discovered the Nova helmet, both Rocket and Gamora set out to train Sam on how to use the helmet so that one day Sam would live up to his father’s legacy.
