|Comic 4: Von Nebula Rising|
Senior Hero Factory Heroes of Alpha 1 Team are dispatched to New Stellac City to assist with a natural disaster. Dunkan Bulk notices that there is a monument in the center of the city with a plaque dedicated to Preston Stormer, inferring that Stormer must have been sent on a mission here previously. After Jimi Stringer re-reads the plaque, Bulk remembers that New Stellac City was the last place rookie Hero Von Ness was sent on a Hero Factory mission before he became the villain known as Von Nebula. Stormer justifies Bulk's hypothesis after remembering it himself, along with the conclusion that this incident was not a natural disaster. The senior heroes are then attacked by Thunder and Corroder.
Rookie Heroes William Furno and Natalie Breez are observing the attack from Mission Control as Mark Surge runs in. They decide that they will go to assist the other team members, getting their weapons upgraded to help on the mission. Beforehand, Furno had been researching New Stellac City, finding out that Stormer and Von Ness had been sent there before, when they were on their first team led by Thresher. He describes the mission as an unpredicted battle against a giant drone, where Stormer and Von Ness were left to fight for themselves after Thresher was injured. Stormer went off to fight the drone himself, leaving Von Ness to watch after the injured Thresher. Instead, Von Ness fled in the team's Drop Ship, leaving Stormer to be the only one to stop the robot from destroying the city. Stormer's bravery allowed him to take on the drone, destroying its optic circuits; the city was saved, and the drone was destroyed. The citizens built a monument out of the drone's parts in honor of Stormer's bravery and loyalty.
Later, the rookies arrive at the scene, not finding the other Heroes. XPlode and Meltdown join the villains, changing the odds of the battle. As the villains attack, the senior Heroes save the rookies just before a black hole opens. Stringer suggests the team to link together to reduce the pull of gravity on the Heroes, though Stormer instead goes in it to find the one responsible: Von Nebula. Furno refuses to let Stormer go alone, and follows him into the black hole. Von Nebula appears, trapping the Heroes into the vortex. Furno attempts to counteract the force by using the antigravity thruster rings that allow Heroes to fly. Believing that Stormer has the rings, Von Nebula attacks him, though is proven incorrect. Stormer counterattacks the villain with his own staff, trapping him there, and freeing the Heroes. Meanwhile, the other team members contain and arrest the villains, completing the mission and saving the city.
