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!

Title: Chapter Two: Believe

Gamora and Rocket Raccoon are at the bed side of Sam Alexander as he regains conciousness. Sam is shocked to see a green warrior and makes the mistake of calling Rocket Raccoon a "talking raccoon". Rocket loses his temper and fires his blaster gun through Sam's pillow!

The teenager runs down the hall of the hospital and runs into a nurse. She takes him back to his room and gives him a sedative. As she leaves the sleeping young man's room, the Nova helmet is left unseen under the bed.

Later, Sam Alexander is stirred from his sleep but sounds and lights coming from under his bed. Sam looks under the bed to find his father's Nova helmet!

He takes the helmet and walks outside the hospital. The teenager believes it was all a joke done by someone at school and he kicks the helmet into the desert. Suddenly, the Nova helmet lights up and shoots a beam into the night sky. Sam walks over to the helmet and decides to put it on.

In a flash of brilliant light, Sam's clothes have transformed into the Nova uniform!

A moment later, a holographic image of Sam's father appears. Jesse Alexander tells his son that since he is seeing the recording, events have not gone as planned. Jesse explains that the Nova powers are now Sam's to discover how to use. He also points out that the helmet responds only to Jesse and Sam's DNA signatures. The former Black Nova tells his son that he is sorry he wasn't a better father and for burdening him with the new responsibility. The recording ends with Jesse telling Sam that he loves him.

Sam Alexander suddenly realizes he is floating in mid-air and falls straight down into a parking lot full of parked cars!

The next morning, Sam's mom arrives to take Sam home. The doctor informs her that all of Sam's injuries have miraculously healed and he is in better condition than when he was checked in. Sam asks Mrs. Alexander if she has heard from his father. She tells him not yet and that she is glad he is okay. When they get home, the teenager goes straight to Jesse's garage room and begins talking to the Nova helmet.

Sam now understands that his father's stories were all true and he has more questions. Unfortunately, the helmet is unable to answer. However, Sam Alexander decides to put on the helmet again. As he dons it, the Nova uniform begins to reform around him!

Nova figures that the helmet is listening and responding to his thoughts. He quickly learns how to fly and zooms off into the sky. While below, his mother disapprovingly watches him from a window. Sam flies faster and faster through town until he is on the edge of the atmosphere and realizes he can control the power!

Suddenly, he also realizes that he can't stop himself and crashes into the Moon!

Nova comes to a stop and finds that he is resting on a boot. He looks up to find himself watching... the Watcher!
