Nova #2 (V6)

The scene opens with Sam Alexander, as Nova, crashing into Tony Stark’s office, in Stark Headquarters, rambling that his father isn’t his father – and that he thinks the man he thought was his father was an alien – because his face had been all disfigured after the fight with the alien.

Within the ruins, they encounter Mole Man, who explains his own son has waged war against him; and Mole Man suspects the trio of being spies for his son. They are rendered unconscious by Mole Man’s release of gas (from his gloves) and awake in an arena, facing off against a somewhat familiar looking, large green monster…
