“I guess most of Nova Corps wanna uphold the laws, but these ones here, they’re corrupt and cruel. But, hey, that’s not my problem.”
―Rocket Raccoon

The Nova Corps was the intergalactic military and police impel of the Nova Empire, led by an individual holding the rank of Nova Prime .


“Your friends have arrived. On behalf of the Nova Corps, we’d like to express our profound gratitude for your help in saving Xandar.”
―Irani Rael

The Nova Corps was on the front lines of a war with the Kree Empire for over 1,000 years. In 2014, a peace agreement was reached ; although the Nova Corps presumably welcomed the reprieve, rioting broke out throughout the Kree Empire. Outraged by the peace agreement, Ronan the Accuser made a treaty with Thanos in order to exterminate Xandar, capital of the Nova Empire. This caused Irani Rael to call the Kree Ambassador and ask for a testimony from the Kree Empire that condemned Ronan ‘s homicidal actions across the galaxy ; however, the ambassador refused.

The Corps defended Xandar on the Battle of Xandar, coordinating with the Guardians of the Galaxy after Nova Prime decided to trust them. partially through the Corps ‘ valiant efforts, the battle was narrowly won, with many members of the Corps giving their lives before Ronan was ultimately defeated. After the battle, the Guardians went through with Gamora ‘s plan to entrust the Orb to the Nova Corps, believing they were one of the few organizations that could be trusted not to use it. Nova Prime assured them of their good intentions and locked the Orb in a fasten vault on Xandar. In gratitude, the Nova Corps expunged their criminal records to allow them a fresh start. [ 1 ]
