So not only is Marvel using a B-list hero for this experiment, but they aren't even filling the role with an established character. Personally, I like the Richard Rider Nova based on his appearance in the Annihilation series, and if this were him I would say "what the heck" and try this out for a buck. But this is Sam Alexander, the Nova from the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, and I dislike that character very much. So I can confirm that the choice of what Nova to use has cost Marvel at least one sale.

But the issue here isn't whether there is anything wrong with creating a new Nova. No one has suggested there is something wrong with that, at least not that I've heard. The issue is whether this character is a wise one to use to launch a new digital comics initiative.
You're right that we know little about the comics version of Sam Alexander. I only know about him through his obnoxious presence in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon. But it's not my fault that the cartoon is the first exposure anyone has gotten to this character; it's Marvel's fault. This is how they chose to promote the character and they have to live with me having a bad first impression of him.
