    Plot Summary

    Warning this section will contain spoilers!

    Sam looks at the Watcher and wonders why he isn't talking but in the end the Watcher points out into space and then he shows Sam an invading alien armada but doesn't say anything else and Sam wonders why he isn't responding and in the end flies off the Watcher then smiles.

    Sam returns home and gets into his house and finds his mother waiting for him and talks to him in Spanish but in the end stops and then tries to comfort Sam and tells him about his dad a bit more remembering how good a father he was. Gamora and Rocket Racoon train Sam even though Rocket Racoon thinks it is hilarious idea because of who Sam is, but they show him how to use his powers and how to fight but they get upset when he references Richard Rider. After the fight Rocket Racoon and Gamora talk to Sam about what he has to do and how he has to stop the Chitauri from using the Ultimate Nullifer on Earth and they realise that Sam can find them and stop them before they get to Earth.

    Sam flies off to Saturn where he finds the Chitauri and Rocket Racoon then fires a shot at the Chitauri also blasting Sam.
