Synopsis for "They Call the Doctor... Octopus!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #113.

Spider-Man battles Dr. Octopus, who has confronted Spider-Man for meddling in his plans once again. During the fight, Octopus manages to get a firm grip on Spider-Man's mask and pulling it off, Spidey then quickly squirts webbing in the Doctor's eyes hoping it'll blind him long enough to allow him to escape. Peter is suddenly struck by painful cramps and has to flee the fight. Dr. Octopus furious that his enemy has fled, ditches the mask and leaves the scene. The mask is found by Randy Robertson who returns home and gives it to his father Joe.

Dr. Octopus then resumes his war against Hammerhead, a new criminal that is trying to secure control over the underworld. Meanwhile, Peter gets a visit from his doctor who tells him he's suffering from an ulcer. Left alone, he decides to resume his search for his Aunt May. He goes to the Bugle to sell the pictures of Spider-Man's battle with Dr. Octopus, which validates for Jameson that the Spider-Man mask found by Randy is the genuine article (which Jameson has now proudly pegged on his bulletin board.) Before he leaves he gets a lead from Ned Leeds about the possible whereabouts of his Aunt May, at an employment agency in the Lower East Side of the city. Peter decides to check it out as Spider-Man, stealing a cheap imitation mask from a costume shop to wear.

Arriving in the location, Spider-Man is attacked by Dr. Octopus once more and is unable to fight at peak efficiency due to his ulcer. Putting in the body harness he took earlier, Spider-Man gets the needed boost to defeat Dr. Octopus. However, the fight takes all the wind out of him. Almost ready to throw it in for the day, Spider-Man is then confronted by Hammerhead and his goons.

Synopsis for "Gang War, Schmang War! What I Want to know is ...who the Heck is Hammerhead?"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #114.

After just barely defeating Dr. Octopus (needing a strength-boosting harness to boost his strength thanks to an ulcer) Spider-Man must now face a new criminal, Hammerhead, who has been warring with Octopus over control of crime in New York City. During the fight, Spider-Man is creased by a bullet and passes out. Dr. Octopus revives and gets away. When Hammerhead wonders why Octopus wanted Spider-Man alive, he takes the wall-crawler back to his hideout.

When Spider-Man revives, Hammerhead gives him an ultimatum: Join his gang or die. He then explains his origins: How he was a man gunned down and was found by Jonas Harrow, a scientist. The man who would become Hammerhead would have amnesia but would adopt the persona of Al Capone-esque mobster after seeing a movie poster about the famous gangster. Harrow would reconstruct Hammerhead's skull so that it would be made out of titanium, he has since worked his way up the crime ladder, his current conquest is to crush Dr. Octopus.

When word reaches Hammerhead that Dr. Octopus has "shacked up with some old broad", Spider-Man has a feeling that it's his Aunt May, and tries to convince Hammerhead that he's changed his mind (while tagging him with a spider-tracer) Hammerhead doesn't believe him and leaves Spider-Man under armed guard while he goes to the location where Octopus was spotted. While on the campus of ESU, Dr. Miles Warren confronts Gwen Stacy about the rumors he's heard about Peter Parker, she confirms them for him. She is then met by Flash Thompson, who makes a crack about Peter's ulcer. This upsets Gwen who tells him off and storms away.

Back at Hammerhead's hideout, Spider-Man manages to distract the gunsels that have been charged with watching him enough to knock them out and hitch a ride on Hammerhead's car. When it arrives outside the hideout of Dr. Octopus, Hammerhead sends out some of his men to the house. Spider-Man knocks them out. Sneaking inside, he's suddenly knocked out when he's hit over the head with a vase from behind. It turns out that it's Aunt Many, who's quite sure she's killed Spider-Man.

Synopsis for "The Last Battle!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #115.

Spider-Man has been knocked out by his own Aunt May when he has sneaked into the hideout of Dr. Octopus. At that moment, Hammerhead and his men burst in the front door, bent on attacking Dr. Octopus in order to secure control of the New York underworld. As Dr. Octopus, his men, and high-tech defenses keep Hammerhead's men at bay, Spider-Man begins to revive. Noticing this, Aunt May decides she should call the police and leaves the area. When Spider-Man revives, he's unaware that he'd been knocked out by his own aunt.

After a brief battle with Hammerhead, Dr. Octopus decides it's time to leave his hide out, and finds Aunt May just as she is about to call the police, learning that she's seen Spider-Man, and heard gunshots, he convinces her that calling the police is unnecessary. While at the Daily Bugle, Gwen has arrived to see if they've heard anything about Aunt May. When Ned Leeds finishes the story he was trying to tell Peter, that someone fitting Aunt May's description was hired by an employment agency and sent to a place in Westchester, Joe Robertson, Ned, and Gwen all leave to go to that location to see if May is there.

Back at Doc Oct's hideout, Spider-Man continues his search for his Aunt May, which gets him into a confrontation with Hammerhead and his men, the fight ends with Hammerhead and his goons fleeing the scene. He then finds Dr. Octopus with his Aunt May. In spite of his ulcer acting up again, Spider-Man manages to beat Octopus into submission, but is forced to flee when Aunt May pulls a gun on him and threatens to shoot if he doesn't stop pummeling Octavius (May is unaware that Dr. Octopus is a criminal) Spider-Man flees just as the police arrive and round up all the crooks. Spidey slips away where he can change into Peter Parker and appears shortly after Joe, Gwen, and Ned arrive. When Peter meets with his Aunt May, she's called by Dr. Octopus briefly. When she comes back, she tells Peter that she's not coming back home, that Peter is a grown man and can make his own decisions, and that she's decided to stay here and keep watch of Dr. Octopus' home as per his request.

As Peter tries to digest everything that's just happened, Hammerhead has meanwhile gotten to an airport in New Jersey and is fleeing the country.
