How Richard Rider became Nova Prime
First, let me introduce Richard Rider. He adopts the mantle of Nova after being visited by the last of the Nova Corps. They are essentially space cops, doing all sorts of space things thanks to the powers granted to them through the Nova Force, generated by the living computers of Xandar.
So, Richard Rider currently exists as Nova Prime. Therefore, he’s the highest ranking and most powerful of the Nova Corps.
Finally, when I was tasked with thinking about what Richard Rider would eat after a long day of being a space cop, the answer was obvious: space doughnuts.

Photo steps for the Nova Space-Cop Galaxy Doughnuts
Nova Space-Cop Galaxy Doughnuts
- 4 small mixing bowls
- Large Mixing bowl
- Pie Pan or other flat Pan for mixing colors
- Wire Rack
- Cookie Sheet
- 4 cups powdered sugar plus more if needed
- ½ cup milk at room temperature
- 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- food coloring purple, black, pink, and blue
- 6 plain donuts can be glazed
- edible glitter for garnishings
Mix it up
- Combine the powdered sugar, milk, coconut oil, and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk until uniform. If the frosting is looking too thin, add a little more powdered sugar. Divide the icing among 4 bowls.
- Tint the icings with food coloring until the desired colors are achieved. You'll need only a few drops, as gel coloring is strong.
- One color at a time, recombine the icings back into the first bowl, or into a pie pan. Une a spatula to swirl the colors together just once. Do not over mix or you will get a muddy color.
- Dip the doughnuts into the swirled icing, twisting slightly to evenly coat the tops. Remove from the icing and place on the wire rack set above the cookie sheet to rest. Sprinkle with edible glitter, if using, and let sit until the icing hardens before enjoying.
