Rich Rider is late for a math test.
Thor becomes possessed by an evil demon that was unleashed during a chemical fire.
Nova flies up to introduce himself to Thor, but gets attacked instead. The two heroes fight.
Meanwhile, the man who was trapped in the chemical fire comes to. Somehow this frees Thor from the possession and he returns to his senses. Together, he and Nova investigate what’s really going on.
They find the man, who by now has fully embraced the demon, and calls himself the Corruptor. They defeat him soundly and Thor gives Nova the Thumbs Up.
