Agent Coulson orders Spider-Man and his team to report to a S.H.I.E.L.D. Arctic base for winter survival training. They instead go against their orders and sneak off to a deserted tropical island (which Nova finds on the S.H.I.E.L.D. database) for a vacation. However, while the island seems like a beautiful paradise, something sinister is lurking in the sand, and does not want its new "play-mates" to leave again.
