What makes Novas air grab so special?

What properties make it special? I though all non command grabs had the same priority

It's not the grab itself, it's the speed that he moves during his air dash and also the priority and safety of the j.h that makes it so dangerous.

Not to mention the ridiculous untechable time that allows for tag combos off it, and the fact that he can combo off it himself wherever.

Not everyone's grab range is the same.

Characters like Ammy, Magneto, Akuma, Nova have bigger grab ranges than others.

The other thing is how good is their jumping H. If it is their universal aerial attack ... then they will be option selecting air grab which will net them more air grabs.

Same with Wesker's. His air grab is insanely good.

It's not the grab range, its the fact that he (and the other 3 characters you mentioned) can fully capitalize on a grab with no help which many characters can't do. Also I'm pretty sure Nova's grab range isn't any different than any other character of his size, in fact, I recall something about characters like Ammy and Felicia having an easier time throwing because they themselves have a smaller hit box making them harder to throw.

Chris is another character who is great at utilizing throws, he can get full combos off of either a ground or air throw with little effort.

Wrong, every character has the same grab range.

The fact that Nova's air dash speed is so high gives the illusion that the range is longer than it is.

Nice proof.

Not denying it (although, I think otherwise) but at least give some proof if you're making a statement like that.
