Ultimate Spider-man – “Awesome”
Spider-man has been having a bad week, culminating in a fight with Juggernaut. During which Luke Cage calls Spider-man to remind him about their science fair project that he keeps putting off being due tomorrow. Peter tries to sneak inside his home after being beaten by Juggernaut for most of the night. Luke calls him asking him about Juggernaut and the science fair. Juggernaut is loose somewhere in the city, and Peter is in trouble because Aunt May sold his chemistry set. On the way to school, Spider-man runs into Juggernaut again, but Juggernaut disappears during the fight. Peter arrives at school, and is lectured by Luke about coming through when he said he would. Spider-man goes to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier to see if there is something he can borrow there. After passing on Marvel artifacts, including Howard the Duck, he finds a grey “mood” brick. He takes it. Peter arrives with the brick. Peter sets the brick on the table, and while Luke and himself celebrate, the brick sprouts legs and walks off. Peter explains that he stole it from the Helicarrier, and Luke tells him that he needs to find a way to do everything in life. The brick walks off and begins eating things and growing. Coulson tells them that it is the Awesome Android, and it feeds on inorganic material. The android grows too big for the school, and goes out on the street, looking for stuff to eat. They stop the android from eating a train, and Juggernaut happened to be on it. Juggernaut runs into the android, and is stopped. The android eats him, which takes off his suit and helmet, and secretes Juggernaut. Juggernaut has lost his powers (uhg) and is able to be taken out. The android is now going berserk. Through an accident, the team finds that the android shrinks when exposed to coldness. Iron Fist was trying to distract the android, but he captures Nova and starts playing with him. In the school, Luke Cage and Spider-man find Eva’s science project, which was about super-cooling carbon dioxide. Luke Cage throws Spider-man into the androids mouth. The android freezes and shrinks back down to a brick.
