Synopsis for "Back to Basics: Part Three"

After stopping Taskmaster and Black Ant, Spider-Man swung himself and Peter to a rooftop, where both confirmed their split by the Isotope Genome Accelerator. While Peter saw the severity of their situation, Spider-Man was ecstatic, enjoying their new standing as useful for a change. Peter acclimated as a baseline human with some difficulty, but felt happy planning a normal life around his loved ones. As Peter and Mary Jane were bowling with Norah and Randy, a news alert about the Tri-Sentinel attack reached them, but Peter's continued bowling surprised Mary Jane. With his Spider-Man duplicate intercepting the threat, Peter was allowed the freedom to enjoy the little things.

With a subpar bowling game, Connors texted Peter for a meeting to discuss his job offer, which Peter hadn't decided on. So given one final week to choose, Connors lead him to the Accelerator to show him test mouse Horatio, split into two mice I and II. The test was to see how the mouse is before and after, if traits could be divided from the original self. As Peter realized that skills were divided between original and duplicate, he quietly found his scientific acumen lost, leading to asking Connors for a "hypothesis." Connors' deduced that even emotional and behavioral traits can be divided, to which Peter reaches a quietly panicked conclusion: Spider-Man has Peter's power and genius, but lacks all sense of his responsibility. Concurrently, Spider-Man reprograms the Tri-Sentinel into his own personal joyride.

Elsewhere, a poacher named Bob kills an elephant and his guide is killed by a thrown knife by an unseen assailant.
