Nova Irani Rael

After the destruction of the Nova Corps by the Annihilation Wave, the Xandarian Worldmind secretly sought out new recruits during Richard Rider's sleep hours. Irani Rael, a Rigellian, was among those first selected to be a new Nova Centurion. Soon after her selection, the Worldmind transmitted an emergency signal as the result of nearly being destroyed by Galactus. Irani joined with the four other Centurions to have been selected thus far -- Qubit, Malik Tarcel, Morrow and Fraktur -- and tracked down the Worldmind's signal.xxxxEarth proved to be the destination. Irani arrived with her fellow Centurions at the tail end of the Skrulls' attempted invasion. They fell right in line behind Richard Rider, the Nova Prime, in helping keep the peace after the invasion's aftermath. These efforts included dealing with a hostage situation perpetrated by the Serpent Society, during which Irani quickly neutralized Sidewinder with a single blast. She later followed the lead of Robbie Rider in apprehending Dragon Man, deferring to his intellect on how to capture the creature.
