Title: "Evil Is The...Earth-Shaker!"

Rich Rider, Ginger Jaye, Mike Burley and Donna-Lee Dover are enjoying the original King Kong at the drive-in. Rich and Ginger are talking while Mike and Donna are making out. Rich turns his attention back to the movie only to find he missed his favorite part! The next morning, Rich becomes the victim of his brother's failed experiments. As a result, Rich gets soaked by toothpaste. Rich goes downstairs to meet his friend, Bernie Dillon. They go over to check on their friend, Roger "Caps" Cooper, who hasn't been seen for days. They find no one at home and Rich promises himself that Nova will investigate.

Meanwhile, miles beneath the Earth's surface, the Fantastic Four villain known as Tyrannus has summoned together the slaves of his foe, The Mole Man. The slaves have been building Tyrannus a giant robot named Earth-Shaker. The goal of Tyrannus is to use The Earth-Shaker to bury the surface world and claim the Earth as his own. Tyrannus herds his slaves into the robot and heads for the surface.

Back at the Rider house, Rich is busy studying math. His studies are interrupted by an announcement on television stating that Marvel Comics is searching for Nova! Rich eagerly flies to the Marvel offices and meets Marv Wolfman and Sal Buscema. They've summoned Nova to try him out in a new comic book. During his tour, Nova also gets to meet Marvel's Production Chief, John Verpoorten, and Archie Goodwin. Marv, Sal and Nova go outside to see Nova in action. During the demonstration, Nova mentions that he can travel at least 50 miles a minute and has the strength of 10 men.

At the same time, The seventy-foot Earth-Shaker has arrived to begin its path of destruction. Tyrannus sees Nova and sends his slaves to attack him. Nova easily handles them and begins a direct attack on The Earth-Shaker. The two begins an intense battle that ends with Nova inside the robot itself! Inside, Nova comes face-to-face with Tyrannus who blasts him with a cobaltronic ray.

During this exchange, The Earth-Shaker has begun creating caverns on which Tyrannus's kingdom will be built. Inside the robot, Nova awakens to find himself tied to The Earth-Shaker's generator. Tyrannus plans to kill the hero by draining Nova's life-force into the robot. Nova fights back by speeding up the vibrations beyond The Earth-Shaker's limit. The Human Rocket breaks free and begins to tear the robot apart! He eventually makes his way to the control center and threatens to rearrange Tyrannus's features. The villain immediately surrenders.

Back at Marvel Comics, the legendary publisher, Stan Lee, has returned. Stan the Man tells Nova that he is too young and inexperienced to be in a new comic right now. As he leaves, Stan states that he has found their newest comic character. Nova's out and Midas, the Million Dollar Mouse is in! Excelsior!
