Title: Chapter Seven: Away Game

In New York City, Sam Alexander is standing on the Statue of Liberty looking at the city convinced it needs him to be its hero. Suddenly, a squad of police helicopters turn their searchlights on him and order him to surrender!

After the police shoot a few rounds of bullets at him, Nova decides to leave the statue and fly into the city. Sam remembers that the city probably isn't happy with him following his actions during his encounter with the Phoenix Force.

Suddenly, an explosion rocks the downtown area! As Nova flies towards the situation, he runs into Spider-Man!

As the two heroes recover from their collision, debris from the explosion falls towards two innocent bystanders. While Spider-Man webs a net over the couple, Nova blasts the concrete chunks into dust with an energy blast.

With the people safe, Spider-Man and Sam begin talking. The web-slinger rudely begins questioning the human rocket about his lack of experience and asks him if he is scanning the police bands. Nova admits that is a really good idea and wonders where he can find a police scanner. Spider-Man abruptly wonders how old Nova is and walks away in disgust when he learns Sam is 15.

Sam Alexander follows him and asks his fellow hero to teach him to be a better hero for New York. Spider-Man points out that New York City doesn't need any more heroes. To prove his point, the two wait ten seconds and see Iron Man fly overhead to stop a crime. The web-slinger suggests that Nova find a city with less super heroes to protect it. Sam thinks that is also a good idea.

Later in Clovis, New Mexico, Justice and Speedball are talking about their New Warriors days. Speedball feels they should get the team back together while Justice is hesitant about doing it.

Suddenly Nova flies by and Robbie Baldwin sees it as a sign that they definitely should restart the team!

Sometime later in Los Angeles, a clown holding a hostage in a ice cream truck is being chased by the police. Nova flies up next to the driver's window and tells him to pull over. The clown complies and gets pulled out of the vehicle by the teenage hero. Suddenly, the female hostage pulls off a wig to reveal she is a he and a stunt driver in an action movie!

The director of the film comes over and tells Nova that he has all their permits. After Sam dismisses him because of his attitude, the filmmaker decides he likes Nova's attitude and wants to have him in his movie. Sam tells him no thanks and decides LA isn't the city for him.

Hovering just above LA, Nova thinks more about the police bands scanner that Spider-Man suggested. Suddenly, his helmet flares in response and projects a holographic multi-screen montoring system in front of him!

After hearing a number of distress calls, Sam Alexander flies off and chooses to stop a raging fire in Denver, an animal rights protest riot and visit Spider-Man again to see if he needs help.

The next morning in Carefree, Arizona, two locals arrive at the skate park destroyed in Nova's battle with Titus. The city doesn't have the money to repair the damage and have sent the two city workers to begin tearing it down. They find that Nova has already begun clearing debris away and states that he will stay for an hour to help.

When the workers begin asking Sam why he's helping them, he tells them he doesn't want to talk about it. However, Nova informs them that he has learned that firefighters don't want superheroes flying through burning buildings, angry mobs don't listen and Spider-Man made it clear he really doesn't want any help from him.

He finishes by telling the workers that he only wants to help. The two men point out that they welcome his assistance and suggest that Nova just needs a little time to become the hero he wants to be.

Watching the conversation from the Moon is the Watcher who knows that Nova will be facing a large challenge in the near future from Thanos!
