The countdown for a clash of generations begins when the twisted High Evolutionary sets the Earth on a catastrophic collision course with its opposite number: the unnatural planet Counter-Earth!

Sam Alexander and numerous other heroes are protecting Earth from a Celestial! Dr. Strange leads a group of sorcerers into the fight and they are able to stop the threat.

In the aftermath, Captain America helps Sam to his feet and they begin cleaning up the city. Steve Rogers informs the teenager that Tony Stark will probably be throwing a big party after they are finished.

Later, at Stark's New York City penthouse, the party is even bigger than Sam imagined. Eventually, Nova finds the X-Man named Rogue. Having fought by her side before against the Phoenix, Sam goes up to her and begins a conversation.

Unfortunately, Rogue doesn't remember Sam and thinks he is Rich Rider and mentions she remembers him being taller. Sam Alexander awkwardly explains that he is a different Nova and had met her before. Rogue then wonders when the Avengers began a new team of Young Avengers. Sam explains that he is a member of the actual Avengers. The female X-Man is embarrassed and quickly excuses herself.

As the party continues on, the young hero begins feeling more and more out of place. He tries to have a conversation with fellow Avenger Spider-Man and X-Men Jean Grey. However, Sam doesn't quite fit in since he can't relate to the stories they are telling. The trio is suddenly approached by Steve Rogers.

Captain America pulls Jean Grey into the kitchen. He explains to Miles and Sam that he needs to talk to Jean about something serious and the two heroes should just enjoy the party.

Later that night, Sam arrives back home in Carefree, Arizona. Eva Alexander is waiting for him. Her son quickly apologizes for being late. Eva explains that it's not the fact that he's late. She simply is worried that he won't be able to come home at all someday.

As they have a talk, Sam's mother wants Sam to give up being Nova. He tries to tell her that the team needs him. She replies that she needs him, too. Eva asks the teenager if he even knows how the Nova helmet works. Before he can answer, she admits that she understands that being Nova helps him connect to his father. She also knows that being with the other heroes allows him to fit in with others like himself. But she tells her son that the fights he participates in as Nova are killing her inside.

They agree to talk about it later since Eva Alexander has to be at work in a few hours. As she walks away, Sam asks if it would help if he figured out how the helmet works. But his mother is already gone by that point.

In his room, Nova contacts Tony Stark and asks him for his help to figure out the workings of the Nova helmet. Tony apologizes and explains that he is working on something else right now but he'll help him in a few weeks.

Over the next three weeks, Sam's friends at school begin to ignore him, the super hero community is too busy to tell him what is going on and his mother is hardly talking to him.

Finally, he tries again to contact Iron Man. All he receives is a holographic message requesting the caller contact any Avengers team if it's an emergency. In frustration, Sam flies to Stark Tower to find Tony.

When he's not able to find anyone in the tower, Nova punches the side of the building in anger. At the same time in another part of town, an earthquake rumbles and a street explodes upward!

Nova arrives at the scene to find himself facing the Mole Monster!
