Sometimes, the Nova Corps take away your helmet, thereby stripping you of your powers. And sometimes, that makes it hard to fit in with your super-powered friends. What’s worse is when losing your powers coincides with someone promising retribution from the other side of the galaxy, leaving you potentially vulnerable to attack. In Champions #3, Sam Alexander can’t even train with the others — which could be a big problem. Plus, there’s definitely more drama to come.

Marvel provided The Beat with an exclusive preview of the first five pages of the new issue, on sale Mar. 6. Take a look at the preview below and be sure to pick up a copy of Champions #3 at your local comic shop on Wednesday.
