Synopsis for "Weapon of Choice: Part 1"

Despite being warned off his dogged pursuit of Gwen Stacy, and his belief that she is Spider-Woman, by his superiors, Captain Frank Castle is observing the movements of Gwen from afar. Gwen who is wondering if her recent de-powering at the hands of Cindy Moon may be for the best and that her negative public perception is warranted. She is persuaded in having a night out with her friends by Glory Grant.

At the close of the night, after being shown a shortcut to the Dollar Dog restaurant, Gwen almost attacks a homeless man, and when she gets inside, she learns that Mr. Alby was forced to sell Dollar Dog after her battle with the Lizard. Distressed, Gwen considers destroying the power-up isotopes charges she has been given that will restore her powers temporarily, which would relieve her of being Spider-Woman. Before she can; however, the restaurant becomes the location of an attempted armed robbery. Frank Castle, who has maintained his visual of Gwen, is there to prevent the robbery (though he also brutally injures the robber) and attempts to apprehend Gwen, but she activates a power-up and manages to hurl Castle through the restaurant window, which is witnessed by her friends, the Mary Janes band members.

Gwen flees into the night with a renewed sense of purpose in being Spider-Woman.
