Synopsis for "An Amazing World"
The story started with Peter re-capping his very short career at this time including his origin and then a visit to his Uncle Ben's grave with his Aunt May.
A crooked furniture salesman trying to make a deal with May excused that Ben ordered some furniture as a surprise to her.
Later, as Spider-Man, Peter views the same salesman trying out the same scam on another potential victim.
Spider-Man then follows the man to a warehouse where he finds a group of men targeting widows and widowers for financial gain.
The group is led by a man named the Undertaker whom Spider-Man confronts.
The group of men are soon called upon, armed at this point, and the very first use of his Spider-Sense aids Spider-Man in dodging the gunfire.
Confused as to what just happens, Spider-Man begins to attack the group of men with his newly found Spider-Sense.
The men are caught and tied up in a neat little package for the police.
On his way home, Spider-Man helps out a couple in his first breakup of a hold-up or mugging.
The story ends with Aunt May viewing the news of the events on television as a mysterious woman telekinetically moves a tractor upon the top of an construction site seemingly amused at her newly realized powers setting the stage for next issue.
