Title: "Death Is...The Yellow Claw!"

At Harry S. Truman High School, Rich Rider is busy taking his Spanish III final exam. After the test, Rich is sitting on the school's bleachers as Ginger Jaye comes up to talk to him.

Ginger is very concerned over Rich's recent attitude change. Rich feels he can't tell her about Nova and his father's recent financial problems. So, instead of discussing his problems, Rich walks off and nearly runs over his friend, Roger "Caps" Cooper. After Rich is gone, a fellow classmate, Mack, asks Ginger on a date. Deciding that Rich hasn't treated her very well, she accepts.

A few minutes later, Rich arrives home. His brother, Robert Rider, informs him that their father has been arrested! Charles Rider was caught committing a robbery and is being held in jail. As the two brothers are about to go downtown to help their father, the phone rings. The voice on the other end belongs to Nick Fury, the leader of SHIELD. Fury tells Rich "the fate of the world depends on you". Rich reluctantly agrees and hangs up. Robert tries to stop Rich from leaving but is tossed aside as his brother rushes to his room. By the time Robert gets to Rich's room, all he finds is Rich's empty clothes on the bed.

Arriving at Fury's helicopter, Nova receives the news that their mysterious foe has struck! Off the coast of New York and 1200 feet below the ocean's surface, the mysterious foe and his henchman, Karl Von Horstbadden, reflect on their plans. After they succeed in unifying the world, the shadowy figure states he will use his neutron absorber to protect all from radiation. The mysterious man tells Von Horstbadden to be silent as they watch their attack begin.

Above New York, the attack is in full force! Nova and Fury are attacked by a squadron of Sky Squids; flying crafts with rocket-powered, armed soldiers aboard. The two heroes plunged into battle with the evil agents! One of the flying fighters blasts at the Roosevelt Island Tramway causing it to catch fire. Nova quickly grabs the occupants and escapes just as the tram explodes! The Human Rocket falls into the East River but quickly revives due to his suit's oxygen supply.

Back at the mysterious foe's headquarters, Von Horstbadden activates a device called the Inducer. The Inducer projects a one-hundred foot holographic image of the man behind the attack; Yellow Claw! Yellow Claw claims Nova and Fury must die for stopping his agent, the Sandman, and preventing him from acquiring the tools he needed. Suddenly, one of the Sky Squid's ships blasts the two heroes with a Cerebral Deprogrammer. They are quickly rendered unconscious and taken by the Claw's agents.

Back at the Yellow Claw's underwater headquarters, Nova and Fury wake up to find themselves attached to the outside of a rocket! Yellow Claw informs them the purpose of the rocket is to destroy a United States' Eye-Spy Satellite. The satellite is located above his headquarters and must be eliminated in order to continue with his plans. The rocket is launched and its neutron warhead is armed! As the rocket leaves Earth's atmosphere, another figure becomes involved. Elsewhere in New York City, a metallic arm presses a button which alters the rocket's course. The mysterious metal stranger cannot have the satellite destroyed as it is important to his own plans of conquest.

The altered rocket heads back to Earth and its new target. Yellow Claw and Von Horstbadden quickly determine that the rocket is headed for Washington, D.C.!
