Synopsis for "Back to Basics: Part Five"

To recover the isotopic genome accelerator he needs to recompose himself, Peter pushes Boomerang to steal it, then steal it in turn. Peter tries to re-found himself with Spider-Man, but they are interrupted by the assault of an army of Tri-Sentinels. Spidey having lost his sense of responsibility tries to escape and Peter prevents him from being hit by the attack of a robot, injuring himself. Fortunately he manages to turn on the accelerator and reunite with Spider-Man. Using the same signal with which Spidey had taken control of the Spider-Bot, the spider manages to take control of all the Tri-Sentinels and send them away. Peter reaches Stromm, but finds him dying because of the mysterious entity that provided him with the tri-sentries. Shortly after, the latter destroyed the building in which Stromm was located. Meanwhile Taskmaster and Black Ant manage to escape, and the former reveals to the official who was questioning them that the accelerator was not their target. In Africa, Kraven the Hunter attacks a poacher.
