a robbery the Spider-Friends encounter Lightwave; a mutant who possess
the ability to manipulate and control light. It becomes evident that she
shares some connection with Iceman, but he is reluctant to reveal the truth
regarding their relationship. Buzz Mason, an agent of S.H.E.I.L.D.
(an elite secret security force that protects earth) enlists the help of
Spider-Man and Firestar. He explains that Lightwave is an ex-S.H.E.I.L.D.
agent turned traitor and that she is endeavoring to steal a device that
will give her control of a satellite called the GUARDSTAR. The Guardstar
would, in turn, give her supreme power over the world. Lightwave attempts
another theft and once again has to contend with the Spider-Friends. She
easily escapes with the device because Iceman refuses to try and stop her.
When confronted by his friends, Iceman confesses that Lightwave is in fact
his half sister Auroro and that he feels he should take care of her. Iceman
pretends to join forces with his sister and discovers that Buzz Mason has
been controlling her mind the entire time. Mason flies off in a rocket
to take control of the Guardstar whilst in orbit, as the Spider-Friends
stow away on board. During the ensuing battle, Mason commands Lightwave
to defeat Spider-Man and Firestar as Iceman is pushed into space. Having
to choose whether to obey orders or save her brothers life, breaks Masonís
hold over her. Without Lightwave, Mason is powerless.
