Synopsis for "The Final Chapter!"

Spider-Man is trapped by tons of iron and finds it in himself to raise the giant mechanism trapping him to rid himself of guilt given by Uncle Ben’s death and to save Aunt May. As he exits, his leg is hurt but he grabs the serum and soon the lab is flooded with water. He lets himself be swept along the current, yet as he makes his way to the surface, he finds more henchmen waiting for him. Going ballistic on the henchmen, he makes his way to Curt Connors’ lab with the serum. After testing it successfully on his own blood, he reasons it may be a cure for Aunt May. Connors phones the hospital to approve the serum Spider-Man is delivering.

Meanwhile, Spider-Man goes back to take pictures for The Daily Bugle and phones Frederick Foswell to get the scoop of the year. As Peter delivers pictures to J. Jonah Jameson, Betty Brant is shocked to see Peter bruised and beaten, which he says is from trying to get pictures. She fears that she’d lose an adventurous Peter Parker the way she did with her brother. Peter then barters with Jameson on the pictures to raise money for Aunt May’s hospital bills as well as all the scientific equipment he pawned off last issue to buy ISO-36. After getting the money, he heads to the hospital to find the results on Aunt May and while he’s being looked at, a nurse announces that the results are in. It seems ISO-36 has cured Aunt May after all. After making sure that Aunt may is out of danger, Peter Parker goes home to get some well deserved rest.
