The old man gives Ken a strange tattoo on his arm and tells him to protect this special power called the Star Brand. Ken begins to investigate his new powers with the help of his friends but is attacked by an alien who thinks that the Star Brand should have been given to him instead. Ken drives off the alien and accepts his new powers.

Synopsis
Nick Fury gives Stark Enterprises Marvel Boy's Quantum Bands to study. Mild-mannered SHIELD recruit Wendell Vaughn is assigned to a security detail guarding the bands even though his father is the head scientist in charge of the experiments. Test pilot William Wesley tries out the bands but the energy kills him, just as it killed Marvel Boy. When AIM attempts to steal the bands, Wendell slips them on and repels the invaders singlehandedly. When he finds he is able to control the Quantum Bands without the power killing him, Fury offers to let him become a super powered agent of SHIELD.
