Meanwhile, his father meets the Inner Circle who demands that he follow through on their contract which states that he owes them a favor for the loan they gave him.

Richard has returned home and began studying, restless he decides to go out on patrol. While flying across the city, he attacks what appears to be Captain America, Hulk, Spider-Man and Iron Man.
