Courtney's mom has finally gotten a new job-- public relations for the school. Unluckily for Courtney, this means that she'll see her almost every day.
Meanwhile, back at home, Pat is fixing up S.T.R.I.P.E. with the help of Dr. Crane, a robotics professor at Ivy University and former superhero named Robotman. While working, Pat's robot dog tries to chew up the nebula rod, a glowing prototype weapon that destroyed Nebula Man... or so they though. Nebula Man returns and destroys the weapon. He then ventures off to suck the cosmic energy out of every other cosmic weapon he can find, including Courtney's belt!
Nebula Man homes in on the belt when it's activated on the bus headed home and Star-Spangled Kid attempts to fight him, despite her powers not working on him. As a last ditch effort, she attaches a live power line to her belt and hurls it at him, absorbing all of his cosmic energy. If things weren't bad enough, when Court and Pat return home, they find Michael Dugan, Pat's son, sitting in their kitchen.
