Because I was young. Because I didn't understand how important every single decision we make is... Because I had to learn that when you have gifts like ours, you don't think about yourself first -- you think about how lucky you are to have them, and how much other people need help... It's what my uncle would've wanted from me, and it's what your Uncle Johnny would want from you... Understand?

Synopsis for "Uncles"

Franklin Richards is alone in the roof of the Baxter Building mourning his uncle Johnny Storm. Spider-Man arrives and invites him for lunch. After they eat a hot dog (that Franklin paid 'cause Spidey was out of money), Franklin talks about the guilt he feels for not saving his uncle. Spider-Man tells him about how he also could've saved his uncle from dying, but didn't do it because he was still too young and had a lot of things to learn. He reminds Franklin that eventually the feelings of guilt and the nightmares will disappear and be replaced by the loving memories of Johnny. Then, Spider-Man takes Franklin back home while in the background, in the sky, Ben Parker and Johnny Storm smile as their nephews head to Baxter Building.
