Nova frantically attempts to reach Earth through a Nova Force-created stargate. And with good reason as he is being chased by the Phoenix!

After traveling light years, the young hero tries to focus on the reasons he has to make it to his home planet. He thinks about SportsCenter, Snickers, Dubstep and the Cardinals along with his family and friends. Nova comes to realize he loves everything on Earth and prays that it won't be taken away from him.

The hero from Earth doesn't know how long he's been flying towards home. At hyperspeed, any time frame can be the correct answer as the laws of physics are warped. Nova has the advantage of his helmet feeding information to his brain. It allows him to slow down to avoid space objects and then go faster in open space.

Controlling his velocity and trying to comprehend hyperspeed appears to be causing Nova a great deal of strain. Suddenly, the starlight shifts to red. Nova's helmet informs him that the filtered color is an automatic collision warning. He has reached the Solar System and is quickly approaching Earth.

Unfortunately, this Nova is still too inexperienced to control his deceleration properly and hits the atmosphere far too fast! He also seems to know that he has to take control of something important but can't remember what it is.

Flying out of control, Nova smashes through the Chrysler Building in New York City! Also in his path is a helicopter and the young man gives all his effort to avoid destroying it! The world shifts red around him as he finally gains control of his momentum. The helicopter and its crew are saved!

However, all his energy and stamina are gone due to the effort of getting to Earth. His unconscious form blasts through another building and hits the street hard.

When he regains consciousness, Nova finds himself looking up at Captain America and the Avengers. Iron Man points out to the angry team that their fellow hero is not attacking them but had fallen out of control.

The exhausted young man is only able to warn the Avengers that something is coming but doesn't have the strength to reveal the name of the Phoenix. As he falls back unconscious, Nova doesn't want to be taken to a hospital because they will take his helmet off. The Avengers pick up the courageous hero and leave to find him medical care.
