* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Nova is actually very good at it. In his last series he took on Sphinx, more powerful than ever before, now able to bend reality at his will, and won. [[spoiler: In the last issue Cancerverse Quasar unleashes an EldritchAbomination that, as he claims, managed to destroy the entire Nova Corps of the Cancerverse in twelve minutes. Richard blows it up in one shot.]] In TheThanosImperative he takes down a bunch of alternate superheroes, empowered by [[EldritchAbomination the Many-Angled Ones]], and [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps them]].

* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: In WarOfKings, when surrounded by Blastarr's army, Nova loudly begs him to show them mercy...and then quietly whispers an ultimatum – either he will let them go, gaining a reputation as a real ruler, not a dumb barbarian, or Rich will do with him what he did with Annihilus.
