Synopsis for "Twos Day"
Back in New York City after his trip to Symkaria to stop the assassination of the king, Spider-Man has tracked down an ULTIMATUM cell attempting to blow up Ellis Island. He has webbed up the terrorists and demands answers from them. One of the ULTIMATUM soldiers manages to pull his arm free and is about to shoot the wall-crawler when suddenly Solo teleports into the room. Spider-Man dodges the mercenaries shots. He is furious that Solo killed the soldiers, as his spider-sense warned him. He also scolds Solo for pursuing his personal vendetta when America and Symkaria are on the brink of war unless they can prove that the United States wasn't responsible for the assassination attempt on the king. Solo admits that Spider-Man has a point, and he accepts the offer to help him, Silver Sable, and Captain America in tracking down the assassin, the mutant mercenary known as Sabretooth. As Solo walks away, Spider-Man wonders why he didn't just teleport away, frustrated about how little he knows about the mercenary.
Meanwhile, Silver Sable and Captain America are flying into Mexico to follow up on a lead that could bring them closer to finding Sabretooth. Sable is determined to kill the mutant, but Captain America reminds her that they need him alive to testify and clear the United States of any involvement in the assassination plot. They are air dropped over a jungle where they drop in on a group of mercenaries. When Cap demands to know where Sabretooth is, the mercenaries attack. However, the pair easily incapacitates the soldiers and nab their leader. However, the leader refuses to talk, knowing Captain America's morality will prevent him from harming his prisoner. However, Silver Sable has no such compunctions and threatens to shoto him. The leader of the bandits quickly changes his position, telling them that he can take them to Sabretooth.
Back in New York, Peter Parker has returned home to his wife to celebrate the fact that she landed the role on Secret Hospital.[Continuity 1] Peter remarks that it's not much of a celebration as it involves ginger ale and late night television. Mary Jane suggets that they have a real party once they move into their new loft.[Continuity 2] Peter remarks how things are quickly changing, as after they move out, only the Palmero's and Nathan Lubenski will be living in Aunt May's home.[Continuity 3] The next morning, Spider-Man heads to the Metropolitan Museum, as part of his investigation into ULTIMATUM. He meets with Solo and tells him that they are checking out the museum as it is currently being renovated that is being funded by the Life Foundation. He tells Solo about he and Paladin had previously discovered a connection between the Life Foundation and ULTIMATUM.[Continuity 4] Solo doffs his disguise and is looking forward to clashing with ULTIMATUM again. Spider-Man reminds Solo that they need ULTIATUM's commanding officer, Major Weil, alive. As Solo charges off, Spider-Man isn't sure who is worst: his enemies, or his allies.
While back in Mexico, Captain America and Silver Sable have managed to track down Sabretooth. The mutant assassin has killed one of his minions as an example for the others for not following his orders during an artifact heist.[Continuity 5] The mercenary who brought them there alerts Sabretooth and his men by starting a fire, spoiling the element of surprise. While Captain America handles the other mercenaries, Silver Sable chases Sabretooth into a nearby temple. Sabretooth has the advantage thanks to his enhanced speed and agility, and he manages to slash Sable a few times. However, the woman notices that the walls of the temple are crumbling and tricks the feral mutant into crashing into one. As she planned, the wall shatters, burying Sabretooth under tons of debris. Captain America digs through the rubble and is disappointed to discover that Sabretooth is apparently dead.[Continuity 6] Now the entire situation hinges on Spider-Man finding Toler Weil.
Back in New York, Spider-Man and Solo storm the Metropolitan Museum where they are ambushed by ULTIMATUM soldiers hiding in suits of armor. As Spider-Man is busy fighting the soldiers, Solo teleports into the other room to get at Weil. Toler flees, leaving a Life Foundation representative alone with Solo. Spider-Man manages to spot Weil trying to flee to a helicopter on the roof. However, the terrorist is pushes past a man working with an acetylene torch, causing the fuel tank to explode, sending Toler falling off the roof. Spider-Man manages to catch him, but this puts him at the mercy of Solo, who orders him to let Weil go, or he will shoot them both. However, Spider-Man refuses to let Solo kill the only person who can testify that his country was not responsible for the assassination attempt. Solo is impressed by Spider-Man's bravery and decides to spare him, this time, and teleports away. Back at the Symkarian embassy, Captain America learns that while Weil is in custody, he is refusing to talk. Spider-Man suggests that they find some other evidence to prove things. Captain America points out that they need to do so soon as things are growing more volatile. He explains that Symkaria has broken relations with the United States and death squads are mobilizing to kill American officials in that country, and the threat of war looms even heavier on the horizon.
In Symkaria, Captain America and Silver Sable confront Sabretooth, the true assassin of Symkaria's Prime Minister. Meanwhile, in the United States, Spidey and Solo track down the current ULTIMATUM big-wig. And on top of that, diplomatic relations between Symkaria and the U.S. have not only broken off, Symkaria's sending death squads after U.S. politicians!
