Spider-Man is on the campus of Empire State University to snap photos of Vice-Chancellor Edward Lansky who is making a hard line against proposed budget cuts to the education system from the mayor's office. Although he is bored out of his mind, Spider-Man believes that Lansky is a straight up guy. Suddenly, the international terrorist known as the Tarantula leaps into the middle of the press conference. Spider-Man leaps into action to prevent the kidnapping of Lansky. However, on his way to the ground, he can't help but notice that Mary Jane Watson with Flash Thompson, hurt that the pair has been seeing each other lately. While Spider-Man is busy fighting the Tarantula, his minions make off with Lansky. Seeing this, Flash Thompson tries to stop them, only to be easily knocked aside by the masked kidnappers. Spider-Man fails to stop the Tarantula and his goons manage to escape. Stunned by his foe's final blows, Spider-Man has to make a hasty retreat when the students and faculty accuse him of being in league with the Tarantula. Going up to the rooftops, Spider-Man goes to recover his camera only to discover that the webbing holding it in place snapped, wrecking the camera and destroying the photos he took.
