- This is my fault. I brought them up against an enemy they're not even close to ready for. And now they're going to die. And it's all my fault... Just like Marla...Just like Uncle Ben. I didn't save him. He died because I was weak. Because I wasn't good enough. I made a promise to him that day that I could never be good enough to keep... But I swore I'd never stop trying. I know I'm not good enough. I never will be. That's no excuse to stop fighting. No matter how much it scares me. No matter how much it hurts. Ben Parker taught me that. And nothing scares me more than letting him down.

Synopsis for "The Substitute, Part One"
As the Future Foundation gets ready to depart for a new mission, Spider-Man sees Alex teaching the FF kids in a classroom. Remembering when he was a school teacher, Spider-Man asks Reed if he can teach the next class. However, Reed declines.
The FF then goes to their mission: defeat a giant gorilla attacking a bridge. Spider-Man and Ben fight the gorilla while Reed and Sue investigate the creature. Suddenly, Giant-Man appears and defeats the gorilla. Hank then asks Ben in helping him teach his students in the Avengers Academy. However, Ben declines, as he believes he is not fit for teaching. Spider-Man offers to be the substitute teacher, and Hank accepts.
Later, Peter and Carlie skate together. Peter tells Carlie that maybe he should go back to teaching, but he is not sure since he loves his job in Horizon. Carlie tells him that he will be a great teacher.
The next day, Spider-Man goes to the Avengers Academy and begins his class. The class goes badly since Spider-Man's superhero advice cannot apply to the students. Spider-Man suggests that they patrol the city and they accept.
As they patrol, the students take down a bunch of muggers attacking a woman. However, Spider-Man criticizes them for being too violent. Suddenly, Psycho-Man appears and Spider-Man discovers that he is spreading fear, hate and self-doubt among him and the students. Spider-Man also discovers that Psycho-Man infects the muggers with hate.
The students attack Psycho-Man, but he infects them with fear. Spider-Man overcomes the fear and destroys Psycho-Man's control box. However, Psycho-Man reveals that his powers come from him, not his control box. Spider-Man is then attacked by the students, still under Psycho-Man's control.
