Synopsis for "Swing Shift"

Peter Parker is on his way to his Aunt May's birthday, bringing a lemon cake when, out of no where, a car speeds through the crowded alley and Peter thinks, "Hmmmm, I don't wanna go after him, let some other superhero go after him. Ah who cares that guy might hurt some one." So Peter puts a tracer on the vehicle, does a slight costume change, and starts swinging after him. In the car is Overdrive, a typical New Yorker talking with his boss who is later found out to be Mr. Negative. Meanwhile, in a nearby bar, "Bookie" is making a bundle taking bets on who will win, Spidey or Overdrive. Spidey wins with the help of Officers Alan O'Neil and Vin Gonzales, but is unable to attend Aunt May's birthday due to using his webbing to secure Aunt May's cake and having to wait an hour for it to dissolve.
