Title: Like A Streak of Light

In New York City, Spider-Man is fighting a group of bank robbers when he discovers that they are aliens disguised as humans! However, the revelation doesn't stop the web-slinger from grabbing them with webbing and smashing them into each other. As he binds the criminals together with webbing, one of the bank customers points out to Spider-Man that the building is moving. Peter Parker looks out the window to see the entire structure has been levitated into space by a starship's tractor beam!

As the bank heads into space, Nova arrives to help. Richard Rider explains to the wall crawler that the robbers are Valgon Raiders. He also informs him that the WorldMind is attempting to override the ship's tractor beam controls and return the bank back to Earth.

While Nova holds off the Valgon's energy weapons, the WorldMind creates an empathic link with Spider-Man. During the link-up, the artificial sentience learns about friendship shared by the two Earth heroes. Peter interrupts the flashbacks in order to assist Nova against the extraterrestrials. They quickly capture the remaining aliens.

As they walk towards the bank's vault, Nova tells his fellow hero about meeting Steve Rogers earlier. Rich recalls how Steve told him that a new group of Avengers was being formed and that his cosmic experience and power would be valuable to it. Nova immediately accepted the invitation!

Back in the present, the human rocket wonders how the web-slinger felt when he was asked to join the Avengers. Peter points out that the important thing to remember is that the former Captain America believes they are good enough to part of Earth's mightiest group. Their conversation is interrupted when they come across the remaining three Valgons who have penetrated the vault. The two Avengers quickly subdue them.

Later, the WorldMind reveals that the Valgon Raiders were searching for the Teshtari Damnation Crucible. It had been left on Earth thousands of years ago and eventually became part of a billionaire's art collection. The crucible is a cosmological superweapon and the alien thieves were attempting to steal it for their own schemes. Nova tells Spider-Man that he will return it to the proper alien race.

As he leaves, Rich admits that he hopes to see Peter more often now that they are Avengers.
