Nova is one of the young superheroes who trains along Spider-Man for S.H.I.E.L.D.
Sam’s powers derive from the Nova Force, which is channeled through his helmet. These powers include flight, enhanced durability, and the ability to absorb and release pulses of energy. However, Sam does not know the extent of his powers, let alone how they work.
When Spider-Man was fighting the drones during a test on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, he quickly expressed his opinion (abeit a bit arrogantly as noted by White Tiger and Power Man). When he and the rest of the team saved Spider-Man from his own inexperience of the Spider-Cycle, him and the Web-Slinger were already on bad terms, with Spider-Man calling him "Captain Bucket-Head". Later the team was sent to help the Web-Slinger fight the Frightful Four. After the fight, Spider-Man accepted the team.
Later, Sam along with the rest of the team, were enrolled into Peter (Spider-Man)'s high school.
Adventures in High School
At some point after his enrollment, Sam sat at "Peter's" table, all the while creating a mashed potato statue of Principal Coulson's head, to which Peter didn't react so well. Soon after, the two, along with the rest of the team were sent to the Helicarrier after school via a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. passage in a classroom while disguised as being in detention.
After being assigned a training mission by Fury, Nova and Spider-Man immediately began destroying and dismantling the training drones, tieing on the number of drones killed. However, it was revealed that the test was to get past the drones without harming them. As punishment for their failures, the entire team is ordered to clean up the parts of the broken drones. After finishing up, Spider-Man rudely showed off how many villans he captured, causing White Tiger to come up with an idea; if they could capture a villan on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s top wanted list, they would get more respect. After a brief argument with Spider-Man on whom to get, Sam suggested they catch Dr. Doom, to which the team agreed to.
Once arriving at Latveria however, Dr. Doom proved to be more than a match for the entire team. When he was finally defeated and taken to the Helicarrier, Spider-Man and Nova fought over who was the best. However instead of respect, the only the thing the team got was Fury's temper and an attack by the now-revealed group of Doombot(s).
