First Story - Training Wheels

At Midtown High School, Peter Parker is explaining to Phil Coulson about how he stopped a group of bank robber until Agent Coulson interrupts him. He reveals to him that he is making good progress in his training except one: his attitude. This surprises Peter and he is berated for not taking a super hero job seriously and is told that he will be tested on his focus. Peter as Spider-Man is hanging upside down and doing his math homework until he sees a giant armored wheel vehicle with robot claws and weapons. Spider-Man believes it to be the test that Agent Coulson told him until the driver inside the giant wheel vehicle attacks him and reveals his name to be Big Wheel whose villain name Spider-Man finds terrible. When Spider-Man jokes about the design of the giant wheel vehicle, he is thrown into a bank which allows Big Wheel to steal the bank's safe and shoot missiles at Spider-Man who now realizes that it isn't a training exercise. Spider-Man realizes that he didn't take Big Wheel seriously and almost let innocent people get hurt and continues to chase Big Wheel onto a roof. Big Wheel believes that he can never be caught before Spider-Man points out that the police have helicopters, S.H.I.E.L.D. have flying cars and that there is him and points out that it is the worst escape plan he had. Big Wheel fires more missiles at him and Spider-Man is able to take the attack seriously and avoids letting people get into the crossfire. Big Wheel prides himself about what he will do with the money which gives Spider-Man the advantage to close himself in the vault and Big Wheel is blasted by his own missiles. Big Wheel is taken to into custody and Nick Fury congratulates Spider-Man for stopping him. He then points out about what Agent Coulson said about taking his responsibilities seriously and Spider-Man now also realizes about innocent lives at stake when he is a super hero. However, this does not stop him from cracking jokes until he asks himself where he put his math homework.
