** RoguesGalleryTransplant: Rich has regularly faced some Spider-Man and Fantastic Four enemies. However, it became even more prevalent as of Annihilation when Rich's power boost caused him to completely outclass his old rogues gallery, besides the Sphynx.

to:

** Sam's recurring RoguesGallery just consists of Titus, the rogue Black Nova. Other than him, most of Sam's enemies were either one-shot or transplanted from Richard's.

** The very existence of the Novas is this to Diamondhead as he has a very personal hatred of Richard Rider. Said hatred only got worse after Annihilation when Nova outclassed him so badly that he was not even a minor annoyance to Richard. After the events of Avengers vs X-Men he basically throws away every dollar in his name to gear to attack Sam Alexander because the very thought of there being a legacy Nova after Richard's death pissed him off that much.

* JurisdictionFriction: When Richard briefly returns to Earth following Annihilation. He's attacked by the Thunderbolts (Commission on Superhuman Activities) for being an unregistered hero, not recognizing that Tony Stark (S.H.I.E.L.D.) has given him a short grace period to consider registering. Further muddled since by attacking him, the Thunderbolts assaulted an officer of intergalactic law (Nova Corps).

Moonstone gets very confused when Nova begins quoting the Nova Corp Pan-Galactic Accords to her effectively reading her her own rights while she's also attempting to arrest him.
