With the Tablet of Death and Entropy and with Kindred imprisoned, Fisk tasked New York's crime lords with a bounty on Boomerang for possession of the Lifeline Tablet. During this time, Peter Parker got a new job, earning a new suit which enhanced his strength and speed. Under this new employ, Spider-Man live-streamed his crime-fighting to the digital platform TNM, which helped his public image. Meanwhile, Robbie and Tombstone learned of Randy and Janice's romance, to which the two fathers formed an unlikely alliance to protect their children.
As the Tablet hunt reached its climax, the betrayal of Boomerang for the last fragment struck Spider-Man hard, revealing the friendship with Peter Parker was just a long con. With the Tablets together, Fisk readied the power of a one-time flawless resurrection to revive his wife, Vanessa. But after coming to an epiphany, Fisk instead brought an unexpected surprise to the New York underworld - the revival of his son: Richard Fisk, The Rose.
