Synopsis for "The Terror Ends"
Somewhere in Manhattan, Matthew Welles, son of late Welles Technology CEO Charles Welles, was running away from Solo, until the former got trapped in an alley, allowing the latter to confront him. As soon as Solo caught up to Welles, he interrogated him and learned of A.R.E.S.' base of operations, which was under the Adirondack Mountains, near Lake George. Afterwards, Solo executed Welles, then teleported away.
Meanwhile, at the A.R.E.S. Headquarters, Tessler was lashing out at Deathstorm and Rowena after their botched missions at the United Nations Headquarters and the Delvadian embassy, informing them that it had damaged their relations with the Delvadian rebels, also criticizing them for how they allowed Scorch to fall into police custody. As Tessler continued to lash out at them, Gant defended himself by saying that Scorch knew how to remain silent, unlike Rowena, which she responded by walking away. Next, Tessler threatened to expel Gant from A.R.E.S., citing disregard for his authority. In response, Gant grabbed Emil, placed him in a chokehold, and threatened to kill him if he "continued badgering him", then put him down. Suddenly, one of the terrorists informed Tessler that they had located Scorch's signal.
At the Midtown Police Precinct in Manhattan, Detective LeGrand was questioning Scorch, who refused to cooperate, causing the former to lose his temper and raise his fist at the latter until he was pulled away by his fellow police officer Maggie. The two police officers exited the room, and afterwards, Scorch felt calm, believing that A.R.E.S. would come for him. Suddenly, Spider-Man snuck into the interrogation room through the window. Back at the A.R.E.S. Headquarters, the terrorists learned that of another heat signature in the same room as Scorch and decided that they would have to compensate. In the interrogation room, Scorch refused to answer Spider-Man's questions about A.R.E.S. Suddenly, a yellowish aura appeared around Scorch, about to teleport him away, as A.R.E.S. had activated his teleportation chip. In order to avoid losing him, Spider-Man grabbed onto him and was teleported to the A.R.E.S. Headquarters with Scorch. The terrorists opened fire on Spider-Man, who was able to evade the gunfire. Suddenly, Solo teleported inside and opened fire on the terrorists. Tessler fled with Rowena and teleported away. Solo and Spider-Man continued to fight A.R.E.S., and the former found himself locked in a one-on-one fight with Deathstorm, who grabbed him with tendrils, swinging him around. Meanwhile, other members of A.R.E.S. were rushing into the Helicarrier. Inside of the Helicarrier was Tessler, who planned to deactivate the teleportation chips of both Deathstorm and Solo and activate the base's self-destruct sequence. During Solo and Deathstorm's fight, the former shot a steel mesh magnetic net at the latter's face, slowing him down, and allowing the former to land punches. Tessler and Rowena were watching the fight from the Helicarrier. Rowena asked her father to do something before Deathstorm and Solo could kill each other, which her father responded by having the two fighters' teleportation chips deactivated. Spider-Man intervened in the fight, causing Deathstorm to fire exploding pellets at Spider-Man before fleeing. After Tessler had been informed that both Deathstorm and Solo were unable to teleport, he authorized the self-destruct sequence, much to Rowena's disaproval.
Back inside the headquarters, Spider-Man and Solo realize that the structure is falling apart and begin to make their escape. After escaping, Solo announced his intention to hunt down Tessler, while Spider-Man declared that the former would be going to jail, triggering a fight between the two, resulting in the web-slinger's victory. After a while, the Guardsmen arrived and took Solo into custody. Meanwhile, at the ruins of the A.R.E.S. Headquarters, Deathstorm survived and vowed revenge on Tessler.
