Quote:Sphinx even followed Nova into the pages of New Warriors.
In a roundabout way he is the reason the New Warriors were created IMO.
What villain did the New Warriors form to face...Terrax. Why was Terrax ever made a herald of Galactus? The Fantastic Four forced him into Galactus service (to replace the previous Xandarian herald Firelord) in order to secure Galactus's help in defeating the Sphinx who gained even more godlike power from the Xandarian Worldmind.
It's all connected!
Reverend Meteor (hmm...you know I guess Reed never cared about how many billions of people Terrax slaughtered for Galactus)
And interestingly, When the NW started, Rich was fighting time. He had lost much of it was in space, and his life was stalled out.
And with Sphinx time jive, well... it isn't connected or anything, but I find it interesting.
