Quote1 We tell ourselves stories to get through the hard times. And, yes, how we tell them matters. But the truth is, there's only so far they'll take you. You can play the dream in your head over and over, but if you want things to change -- if you want that story to be your life, you have to wake up. You have to make it real. This is my story -- our story. Quote2

Synopsis for 2nd story

Mysterio has decided to represent himself alone in court, but the lawyer Janice Lincoln arrives to defend him, determined to invoke mental infirmity. Mysterio disagrees, but suddenly Janice starts vomiting insects, the judge is torn to pieces by rats, and the court begins to collapse. Quentin finds himself in front of a disturbing being covered with bandages, which threatens to bring him back to Hell if he doesn't prepare a big clash with Spider-Man, declaring to have procured him the lawyer.

Suddenly Mysterio finds himself screaming in the courtroom, and Janice congratulates him for having favored her defensive strategy so well.

Meanwhile, Peter discovers that someone has opposed the revocation of his academic qualifications: Lizard.

Solicit Synopsis

An alien invasion hits New York City and the only one who can stop it is… Spider-Man?! But that’s far from all you’ll find here – a revelation from the past puts Peter Parker’s job, relationships, and whole life in jeopardy! And if even that’s not enough, you’ll see a new roommate, new love interests – and a new villain! Spider-Man goes back to basics courtesy of Nick Spencer (SECRET EMPIRE, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN) and the Marvel debut of RYAN OTTLEY (Invincible)!
