Ultimate Spider-man – “Doomed”
Peter Parket is giving the rundown of people in his school cafeteria: the Silver Surfers, cool but distant, and the Hulks, people who like to smash stuff. Peter is upset that Sam (Nova) is hanging out with Mary Jane. Agent Coulson separates them, and sends them to detention. But, detention was just a ploy to get everyone together to do a SHIELD training mission. Nova and Spider-man have a contest to see who can take down most drones, while everyone else looks on. Nick Fury comes back after they finish and explain to them that the goal was to get past without setting off any alarms. Fury makes them clean up the mess. The group is upset with Spider-man, and he’s upset being stuck with noobs. White Tiger looks up SHIELD’s most wanted list. Spider-man yawns at her first choice, then Nova decides to go off after Dr. Doom. White Tiger tries to talk the guys out of it, but their ship takes off anyways. They fly into Latveria and are attacked. They take care of Doom’s robots, but are then confronted by Doom. Eventually, Nova and Spider-man inadvertantly take Doom down together. Spider-man races off with Doom as his prisoner. He takes him back to Fury. Turns out, it was a trick by Doom to get into the Helicarrier. And Doom was really just a set of Doombots. The bots attack SHIELD. The bots are able to take out one of the engines, and the Helicarrier begins to descend into New York City. Spider-man suggests to Nova to help with the engine. Nova doesn’t want to stop fighting, but he’s convinced to help. The team begins working together, and are able to defeat the Doombots. Fury gets on the team, and asks whoever started it to step forward because they are off the team. Spider-man steps forward, but the other step forward also. Fury allows them to stay. Doom sends them a message that he has his eyes on them and knows their weaknesses.
