Title: Chapter XXII:
        Children of the Candy Corn

On the Moon, Sam Alexander talks to the Watcher in spirit while building a monument of him. Sam admits he doesn't understand why his all-seeing friend didn't stop his own murder. He also states that he found his dad and that he is proud of Jesse Alexander.

However, Sam reveals that he doesn't want to end up like his father who didn't graduate from high school. He discovered that Daredevil is a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock. Nova feels that if a handicapped man can graduate from college and law school, the least he can do is graduate from high school. Sam leaves the finished monument and tells the Watcher that he wishes his friend was still around to watch.

Later at Carefree High School, Sam has a talk with Principal Philbin. The teenager wonders why the principal didn't even ask why he has missed so much school lately. Philbin answers that he doesn't care. Sam reveals to the principal that he had been searching for his father and that he just wanted to help him.

Principal Philbin believes Sam's sincerity and tells him that he will have to pass summer school to make up for his lost time. Then he tells the teenager to get to class.

In the school's hallway, Sam is shocked to see everyone in costumes. The teen forgot that it was Halloween. He meets up with his friend Carrie. He tells her that he is working on getting her the money he owes her for babysitting his sister. Sam also takes the opportunity to ask Carrie is she has plans for later. The young girl says she has plans to go to a concert. However, Sam's rejection is quickly forgot when he gets a text message inviting him to a party.

Later at the Jean Grey School, Sam flies to the door dressed as a ghost in a white sheet. The Beast and a couple of other X-Men greet him. Armor truthfully tells Sam that she had texted him by mistake and thought she was sending the message to Speedball. The Beast gently prompts Armor (who's dressed as a Samurai) to invite Nova to go out with them.

As the teens are out Trick-Or-Treating, they come across two upset children. One of them explains that two boys in masks took their candy. The young heroes decide to hand out some teenage justice!

As they rush to find the thieves, a child dressed as Spider-Man asks them who they are. Genesis (dressed as the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz) responds that they are the Halloweeners.

The super teens discover two more children who have had their treats stolen. Nature Girl learns from communicating with the nearby trees that the thieves are straight ahead.

A few moments later, the two candy robbers turn to find a glowing ghost blocking their path! From under his sheet, Nova demands the thieves leave the candy or he will steal their souls! The two criminals turn and run only to find themselves running into Kid Gladiator who demands justice.

Later, the two thieves are tied up in Nova's sheet with a message written on it saying they steal from children. Nova demands they apologize to the kids. After they apologize, Nova tells them to go home. As everyone starts to go their separate ways, Nova thanks them for letting him go out with them. Before he can fly off, Sam sees a father and son enjoying Halloween and sadly smiles.

Meanwhile on a space station in deep space, Jesse Alexander informs his crew that their hosts are allowing them a way to communicate with their loved ones. An alien being uses his telepathic abilities to connect Jesse's energy spirit to talk to Sam and Eva Alexander at home.

Unfortunately, the Alexanders no longer live in their home and miss their chance to talk to Jesse.

At the Alexanders' new apartment, Sam arrives home missing his father more than ever. As he walks into the house, his mother is just getting off the phone. Sam assumes it's Principal Philbin checking up on him. Eva informs him that it was Captain America on the phone and wants Sam to meet him at Avengers Mansion!

As Sam flies off to New York, he's relieved that tomorrow isn't a school day.
