- Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- "No, you move."

Synopsis for "The War at Home: Part 6 of 7"
Peter steps out of the apartment, hiding his face with glasses and a cap, and gets a copy of the Daily Bugle with the headline: "Spider-Man/Parker Challenges Registration!" Unfortunately the female guest nearby recognizes his face as the one on the front page, and calls it in to a friend. Meanwhile Captain America and the Human Torch decide the best action to take now would be to secure Parker before Stark can get a hold of him. Johnny visits Peter's old haunts, checking his sources for where he could be. Mary Jane tells Peter to look out the window, remarking that they might not be able to lay low, and he sees a message in the sky made of flame stating "Call Me" with Pete's trademark spider emblem. Meanwhile Wilson Fisk has a visitor, and by using their own code with a piece of paper Fisk confirms to his lackey that he wants Spider-Man dead. Also if Peter is not in the house at the time of the hit or killed, any bystander (MJ and Aunt May) should be hit anyway. As Captain America and Falcon make their way to Peter's location, Falcon reveals suspicions about Spider-Man setting them up, however Rogers assures him that no matter what, he could see that Peter was definitely honest about his position in the war. Peter arrives and asks Steve how he deals with going against the country, and after some profound words the trio departs, confirming to Peter how good it feels to be on the right side again. The hitman hired by Fisk arrives at the apartment, kills his driver (Fisk's lackey) and waits outside with a sniper rifle. Spidey and Captain America regroup with the other unregistered Avengers, and right when Peter tries to assure Cap that he left nothing out of the equation, Mary Jane is seen in the hitman's scope.
- In the movie Captain America: Civil War, Captain America's speech in this issue is recited by Sharon Carter during Peggy Carter's funeral, and it's attributed to her.
