Synopsis for "License Invoked"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #320.

At Empire State University, Peter Parker is testing out the strength of a new webbing formula by putting an acetylene torch to it. He is caught in the act by Doctor Evan Sloan. After offering an excuse as to what he is doing, Peter agrees when Dr. Sloan suggests that he does his independent research on his own time. After his shift is over, Peter changes into Spider-Man so he can test his new webbing while also hunting for photos he can take for the Daily Bugle. Meanwhile, in Forest Hills, Mary Jane gets a call from Harry Osborn who is asking for help with moving into his new loft in Soho. After Mary Jane finishes her call, she notices that Aunt May has been acting strangely all morning. At that moment, in lower Manhattan, Spider-Man happens upon a bunch of men laying on the ground outside a warehouse. Going inside, he finds the hired mercenary known as Paladin going through files. Spotting the wall-crawler, Paladin opens fire, but the hero dodges the shots. Before Spider-Man can find out what's going on, a bunch of armed men comes rushing into the warehouse with guns blazing. Spider-Man uses his new webbing to dump a pile of crates on them. Unfortunately, the webbing proves to be too good as the pinch valve in the wall-crawler's web-shooters can't cut through them. As a result, Spider-Man is yanked back when he tries to go after Paladin, allowing the mercenary to escape.

Deciding to learn what Paladin was looking for, he looks through the wreckage and comes across a guest list for a reception being thrown at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel hosted by the Life Foundation. Wondering why the catering business that is supplying the event would have heavily hard men, Spider-Man decides to go home and sort things out.[Continuity 1] When Peter returns home, he finds his wife, Mary Jane, in the middle of a workout.[Continuity 2] After telling Peter that they are going to help the Osborns move, Peter asks if she wants to go to a party. Mary Jane jokingly points out that she is only unemployed, not dead and wants to go.[Continuity 3] Peter then asks MJ to use her connections in the modeling industry to get them into the party at the Waldorf.

Soon, Peter and Mary Jane are at the Waldorf, where he quickly spots Paladin among the crowd.[Continuity 4] He also recognizes an elderly man in sunglasses, but can't place where he knows him. This is Carleton Drake of the Life Foundation. Peter then leaves his wife so he can get down to business. Changing into Spider-Man he tails Paladin, who is following a diplomatic limo. This led to an import car dealership in Brooklyn. There, Spider-Man watches as Paladin holds the diplomat at gunpoint. That's when Spider-Man steps in to stop Paladin from hurting the official. Suddenly, the diplomat begins shooting at Spider-Man. Then a group of paramilitary soldiers were swarming the area with guns blazing. They are then attacked by mini-tanks. While the pair is dealing with those tanks, the diplomat and Carleton Drake manage to escape. Paladin is furious by Spider-Man's interference. Suddenly, a helicopter arrives and drops a rope ladder and tells Spider-Man to join him in explaining why he failed his mission. Aboard the helicopter, Spider-Man is surprised to see that Paladin's employer is Silver Sable. Paladin was supposed to stop Carleton Drake from meeting with the diplomat until Spider-Man interfered. Spider-Man remembers his last encounter with Drake and the Life Foundation and their secret compound in New Jersey.[Continuity 5]

Silver Sable explains that she is investigating a foreign government that is conspiring against her homeland of Symkaria. The ramifications of which could threaten peace on a global scale. Spider-Man is apologetic for his interruption but offers to help Silver Sable for free. Sable tells him to contact the Smykarian embassy later. Sable then drops him off in Queens.[Continuity 6] The next morning, Peter wakes up and picks up the phone to contact Silver Sable. However, Aunt May is already one the phone. He overhears the doctor telling her that a diagnosis is complete. The prognosis is heart disease, and there is a six month life expetancy. Hearing this, Peter is led to believe that his Aunt May has only six months to live.

Synopsis for "Under War!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #321.

Investigating a conspiracy against the nation of Symkaria, Spider-Man has joined Paladin. They have tracked the conspirators to a train yard owned by the Life Foundation. Spider-Man is distracted because he believes that his Aunt May has only six months to live due to heart disease. While Spider-Man keeps the guards at bay, Paladin starts stealing the files the Life Foundation have at the facility. With their mission done, Paladin heads off and tells Spider-Man to call the Symkarian Embassy tomorrow. The wall-crawler heads back to his Aunt May's home in Queens. Riding atop a subway train, Spider-Man hopes to find out what the Life Foundation's involvement in this operation is. He also worries about his financial problems, Mary Jane's sagging career, and Aunt May's health.[Continuity 7]

Later that day at Life Foundation headquarters Carlton Drake goes over Spider-Man's interference on their recent operation.[Continuity 8] When his associates suggest they abort the current mission, Drake decides that they need a field test and orders them to prepare the Protectors. While in Queens, Peter talks to his wife Mary Jane about how Aunt May could be dying of heart disease.[Continuity 9] Mary Jane suggests that they give May her privacy. However, when Peter's Aunt enters the room, Peter reveals what he knows. However, May explains that it's not her who was diagnosed with heart disease, but Nathan Lubenski, her longtime fiancee.[Continuity 10] With Nathan's days numbered, May wants to make him as comfortable as possible and has decided to shut down her boarding house.[Continuity 11] Peter understands, but later while getting ready for bed, Peter feels bad leaving Aunt May, but Mary Jane points that they have to find a place. However, she has good news, she has an audition for a role in a soap opera. Something that she is satisfied doing since her modeling career is on a hiatus. She also reminds Peter that they are helping the Osborns move into their new loft.

The next day, Peter and Mary Jane help Harry and Liz Osborn move into their new home. A few hours later, Peter hopes the Osborns can help them when they finally find a place of their own. That's when Harry announces that he has a surprise for the Parkers. He tells them that the upper levels of the building are vacant and offers to let Peter and Mary Jane move in. They go upstairs to check out the loft, and they fall in love with it immediately. The pair accept the offer to move in. Later, Peter goes out to a nearby payphone so he can call Silver Sable and follow up on their investigation into the Life Foundation. She tells him to meet her at a helipad on 34th Street so they can head to New Jersey. Soon, Spider-Man, Silver Sable, and Paladin are heading to New Jersey in a glider. Ejecting from the glider near the Life Foundation's headquarters, the glider goes off on a crash course to create a distraction. They then ambush one of the guards and enter the facility through a ventilation shaft. Inside the facility, the trio discovers that the Life Foundation is building a new survivalist bunker, complete with its own shopping mall. They are soon confronted by Carleton Drake and his Protectors, a group of mercenaries that have been mutated into massive muscled creatures.

The creatures are more powerful than the three heroes can handle. Paladin manages to take one of the Protectors down by dumping a bunch of construction crates onto the creature. During the fight, a wall is smashed down, revealing a weather control panel. Spider-Man cranks it up full blast, creating an artificial blizzard inside. Meanwhile, Drake and Chakane observe from the safety in the control room. That's when Silver Sable smashes into the room. She shoots Drake in the shoulder and then pulls a needle out of her pocket that she intends to use on Chakane. Meanwhile, Spider-Man lures one of the last Protectors into the control room and makes it hit a fuse box, electrocuting the behemoth. Spider-Man wanders into the blizzard and reunites with Paladin. The pair then knocks out the last of their foes. When they catch up with Silver Sable, she has already extracted the information out of Chakane using sodium pentethol. Spider-Man is upset that she used drugs on their opponent, however, Sable isn't interested in getting any mortality from the wall-crawler.

On the flight back to New York, Silver Sable reveals that Chakane was going to hide out an assassin in the United States after they eliminate the king of Symkaria during his silver jubilee. When she asks the two men to accompany her back to her home country to catch the assassin, Paladin tells her that he has another contract. Spider-Man is about to decline because he doesn't agree with her morals. However, when she offers to pay him a generous daily rate, Spider-Man can't turn it down.

Synopsis for "Ceremony"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #322.

Spider-Man has accompanied Silver Sable and the Wild Pack to her native Symkaria to prevent an assassination plot. The crash in on a bunch of militants at a Symkarian government office. Thinking this is part of that plot, Silver Sable and her team are disappointed to discover that this is merely an attempt to rob a government payroll. Silver Sable and Spider-Man then take a limo back to the Symkarian royal palace. On the way, Sable is frustrated as this is another in a series of failed raids. This is mostly because Silver Sable International could be involved in more profitable ventures. Spider-Man balks at this opinion, but Sable reminds the wall-crawler that the only reason why he is here is that he interfered in her operation in the United States to determine who the assassin trying to kill the king was, and that he only agreed to come to Symkaria because she offered to pay him. Spider-Man wishes he could tell Sable that he was a wife and apartment and they could use the money, but can't without exposing his identity, leaving them both in a chilly silence.[Continuity 12]

When they arrive at the royal palace, Spider-Man witnesses the festivities being prepared for the silver jubilee and the upcoming wedding of the king of Symkaria. They then witness King Stefan and his fiancee Vivian address the crowds from a balcony. Silver Sable tells Spider-Man that the king and his bride-to-be are much loved by the people of Symkaria and their deaths would be a national tragedy. They are then joined by Prime Minister Lumka who extends his apologies for the unsuccessful raid. Sable is not impressed with Lumka's security and tells the Prime Minister that her Wild Pack will remain with the king. While Sable decides to spend her downtime to get some exercise in, Spider-Man web-slings off to do some sightseeing. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Lumka is back in his office where he thinks about how Spider-Man's involvement complicates things. His thoughts are interrupted by Major Toler Well, an operative of the terrorist organization known as ULTIMATUM. Well learns that the false intel they have been feeding Silver Sable has been working, and they decide to proceed to assassinate the king during the air show tomorrow. ULTIMATUM is targeting Symkaria for their anti-nationalism agenda. The Prime Minister, however, is only interested in eliminating King Stefan before he can produce an heir, so he can take control of the Symkarian government and dissolve the monarchy.

At that moment, Spider-Man goes into the city again so he can call back home from a pay phone. The phone is answered by Aunt May who is delighted to her from her nephew. She tells him that Mary Jane isn't home because she went off for her audition for a role in the soap opera "Secret Hospital". Spider-Man has to cut the call short before it gets too expensive and heads back to the castle. While in New York City, Mary Jane is nervous as she goes over the script. The character she is auditioning for is an arrogant woman named "Sybil" and she wonders how she can stand out among all the other women auditioning for the role. When it's her turn, Mary Jane puts on a scene, refusing to read her lines, telling the auditioners that they should appreciate that she even bothered coming to the audition. This takes them aback, and point out that is not how a relative unknown could act such a way during an audition. Mary Jane drops character and agrees, pointing out that this is exactly who Sybil would have handled the situation. Telling them her phone number is on her resume, Mary Jane walks out of the audition with a smile on her face. Amazed by the stunt she pulled, Mary Jane heads to find a party.

Later that evening, at the Symkarian palace, Spider-Man is among the guests at a formal dinner being thrown for the king. He feels silly having to wear a tuxedo over his Spider-Man costume. Particularly since he has had to wear his costume at all times in order to preserve his secret identity. He spots Silver Sable walking out onto a nearby balcony and joins her. She tells him that she is checking the security perimeter and reveals her concerns about how the assassination of the king could pitch Symkaria into the dark ages. Spider-Man is surprised to hear Silver Sable speak of anything deeper than her corporate bottom line. Sable reveals that she is willing to die for her country, and asks Spider-Man if he would ever be willing to do the same for his own. Spider-Man isn't sure, and Sable tells him to sleep on it, dismissing him for the evening. The next day, Spider-Man joins the Wild Pack in providing security for the air show being put in celebration of the king. Much to everyone's surprise, the jets on display begin deploying ULTIMATUM paratroopers who begin opening fire on the crowd. While the Wild Pack return fire, Silver Sable and Spider-Man pull the king and Vivian to the safety of the castle.

When the terrorists storm the palace, Spider-Man and Sable join the Wild Pack in fending them off. While everyone is distracted, Prime Minister Lemka prepares to kill the king. However, before he can, a feral man leaps out of the shadows and slaughters the Prime Minister. Meanwhile, two ULTIMATUM agents manage to reach King Stefan and Vivian. When they open fire, Vivian pushes her would-be husband out of the way and is fatally shot. Silver Sable comes rushing in and kills the two agents. Spider-Man pushes himself to the limits to take down the rest of the terrorists and then consoles Silver Sable. While the king mourns the loss of his bride-to-be, one of the Wild Pack shows Silver Sable and Spider-Man the remains of the Prime Minister. Silver Sable is furious at this death, as it will weaken her government. That's when the Wild Pack also report that they discovered a secret passage way, however it was empty. However, they found a scrap of a uniform with a capsule stuck to it. Sable wants to be analyzed but suspects that it is a capsule of panadoxin, a synthetic poison used in suicide pills specially used by the CIA.

Synopsis for "Assault Rivals"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #323.

In the sewers beneath Paris, France, agents of the terrorist organization known as ULTIMATUM are attempting to blow up the famed Arc Du Triomphe. However, their operation is interrupted when the anti-terrorist mercenary known as Solo teleports in on them. Solo guns down all of the soldiers but one. He demands that the terrorist to give him the location of his commander Toler Weil. With his life on the line, the terrorist buckles and tells Solo that he can find Weil in Symkaria. With the information he needs, Solo tosses a grenade at the terrorist. Announcing that while he lives, terror dies, Solo teleports away as the grenade explodes.

Meanwhile, in Symkaria, the country is reeling after the assassination Vivian, the woman who was to marry King Stefan. With the CIA potentially implicated in the attack on the royal palace by ULTIMATUM, the ambassador of the United States to Symkaria heads to the palace in a limo to answer to the allegations. As they approach the palace, the vehicle is pelted with tomatoes by the angry citizenry. Inside the palace, the Ambassador Hawthorne is introduced to acting Prime Minister Alphonse Gallatik who then takes Henry to see Silver Sable who is investigating the murders.They are surprised to see Spider-Man with Silver Sable, but things quickly turn to the business at hand. She briefs Hawthorne on Silver Sable International's investigation into American groups like the Life Organization, who are somehow involved in a plot to assassinate the king of Symkaria. After the ULTIMATUM attack the day before, Sable found a panadoxin pill that points to the CIA also possibly being involved. She warns the ambassador that should they find proof of CIA involvement there will be stiff reprisals from her country. The ambassador assures her that American is an ally of Symkaria, however, Sable points out past partnerships between the United States and nations it now considers enemies.[Continuity 13] When Spider-Man suggests they should focus their energies on finding the assassin, the ambassador tells Spider-Man to butt out, due to his vigilante status in the United States.

Angered by this, Spider-Man decides to go outside where he addresses the news crews camped outside of the palace. On live television, Spider-Man tells them that his activities in Symkaria are intended to embarrass the United States and that he is being a model citizen. He also uses the opportunity to send a veiled message to his wife Mary Jane to let her know that he is fine.[Continuity 14] The report is watched by Aunt May, Nathan Lubenski, and Mary Jane. Seeing this report prompts Mary Jane to tell May that Peter called to let them know that he is okay. However, Spider-Man's interview with the media is cut short when the press is made aware that Captain America is being parachuted into the country. Cap is swarmed by the press who ask him if he is here in his capacity as an Avenger or to help the CIA. All the star-spangled Avenger can tell them is that he is here to do the right thing. Also watching this development are the members of ULTIMATUM. Major Weil orders his men to mobilize and prepare for the worst. As they go about their duty, Weil begins planning his own escape strategy.

Soon, Captain America is brought in for a strategy meeting, that Spider-Man is forced to wait outside. The wall-crawler considers heading home, as he is tired of being looked at as nothing more than hired help. However, when the others emerge from their private meeting, Captain America vouches for Spider-Man and his involvement. With files from the CIA, Captain America informs them that ULTIMATUM has set up operations on the Symkaria/Latverian border and that they are planning a strike so they can find the real assassin and absolve the United States of any responsibility. Silver Sable also informs Spider-Man that his contract has been fulfilled and that he can go home if he wants. However, Spider-Man's sense of responsibility prevents him from turning his back on the rest of this mission. The Wild Pack, Cap, and Spider-Man are dropped near the ski lodge where ULTIMATUM is set up. As they prepare to attack, Captain America asks Spider-Man what his motivation is, and is proud to hear that Spider-Man is joining the operation for the sake of his own country. Suddenly, they are ambushed by ULTIMATUM soldiers hiding in the snow. While Spider-Man and the others are busy fighting the guards outside, Major Weil realizes that his operation is a failure and makes preparations to blow up his hideout and escape.

However, before he can do so, Solo teleports into the room. Before the mercenary can kill Weil, he is surrounded by guards. This gives the Major a chance to make a break for his escape vehicle. Solo manages to catch up, but before he can gun down Weil, Spider-Man and his allies come crashing through the wall. Spotting Solo, Captain America hits him with his shield. This allows Major Weil to make hie escape. Solo is furious at their interference, pointing out that Weil is a top ULTIMATUM official. Having heard about Solo's activities, Captain America expresses his dissatisfaction with the mercenary's methods. Learning about the communications room, Spider-Man doubles back and webs up an ULTIMATUM operation and demand that he give them the access codes. He refuses, but Silver Sable manages to get the information out of him. As the ULTIMATUM agents are being arrested, Solo teleports away leaving Spider-Man, Silver Sable, and Captain America go over the records they pulled from the computer. They are surprised to learn that the assassin that was hired was the mutant killer known as Sabretooth.[Continuity 15] They all agree that in order to clear the United States of any wrong doing they must find Sabretooth alive and force him to testify. That's when one of the Wild Pack informs Silver Sable that the American ambassador has been recalled due to death threats, and there is some real fear that this may be a precursor to war.

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #324.

Back in New York City after his trip to Symkaria to stop the assassination of the king, Spider-Man has tracked down an ULTIMATUM cell attempting to blow up Ellis Island. He has webbed up the terrorists and demands answers from them. One of the ULTIMATUM soldiers manages to pull his arm free and is about to shoot the wall-crawler when suddenly Solo teleports into the room. Spider-Man dodges the mercenaries shots. He is furious that Solo killed the soldiers, as his spider-sense warned him. He also scolds Solo for pursuing his personal vendetta when America and Symkaria are on the brink of war unless they can prove that the United States wasn't responsible for the assassination attempt on the king. Solo admits that Spider-Man has a point, and he accepts the offer to help him, Silver Sable, and Captain America in tracking down the assassin, the mutant mercenary known as Sabretooth. As Solo walks away, Spider-Man wonders why he didn't just teleport away, frustrated about how little he knows about the mercenary.

Meanwhile, Silver Sable and Captain America are flying into Mexico to follow up on a lead that could bring them closer to finding Sabretooth. Sable is determined to kill the mutant, but Captain America reminds her that they need him alive to testify and clear the United States of any involvement in the assassination plot. They are air dropped over a jungle where they drop in on a group of mercinaries. When Cap demands to know wher Sabretooth is, the mercinaries attack. However, the pair easily incapacitates the soldiers and nab their leader. However, the leader refuses to talk, knowing Captain America's morality will prevent him from harming his prisoner. However, Silver Sable has no such compunctions and threatens to shoto him. The leader of the bandits quickly changes his position, telling them that he can take them to Sabretooth.

Back in New York, Peter Parker has returned home to his wife to celebrate the fact that she landed the role on Secret Hospital.[Continuity 16] Peter remarks that it's not much of a celebration as it involves ginger ale and late night television. Mary Jane suggets that they have a real party once they move into their new loft.[Continuity 17] Peter remarks how things are quickly changing, as after they move out, only the Palmero's and Nathan Lubenski will be living in Aunt May's home.[Continuity 18] The next morning, Spider-Man heads to the Metropolitan Museum, as part of his investigation into ULTIMATUM. He meets with Solo and tells him that they are checking out the museum as it is currently being renovated that is being funded by the Life Foundation. He tells Solo about he and Paladin had previously discovered a connection between the Life Foundation and ULTIMATUM.[Continuity 19] Solo doffs his disguise and is looking forward to clashing with ULTIMATUM again. Spider-Man reminds Solo that they need ULTIATUM's commanding officer, Major Weil, alive. As Solo charges off, Spider-Man isn't sure who is worst: his enemies, or his allies.

While back in Mexico, Captain America and Silver Sable have managed to track down Sabretooth. The mutant assassin has killed one of his minions as an example for the others for not following his orders during an artifact heist.[Continuity 20] The mercinary who brought them there alerts Sabretooth and his men by starting a fire, spoiling the element of surprise. While Captain America handles the other mercinaries, Silver Sable chases Sabretooth into a nearby temple. Sabretooth has the advantage thanks to his enhanced speed and agility, and he manages to slash Sable a few times. However, the woman notices that the walls of the temple are crumbling and tricks the feral mutant into crashing into one. As she planned, the wall shatters, burying Sabretooth under tons of debris. Captain America digs through the rubble and is disappointed to discover that Sabretooth is apparently dead.[Continuity 21] Now the entire situation hinges on Spider-Man finding Toler Weil.

Back in New York, Spider-Man and Solo storm the Metropolitan Museum where they are ambushed by ULTIMATUM soldiers hiding in suits of armor. As Spider-Man is busy fighting the soldiers, Solo teleports into the other room to get at Weil. Toler flees, leaving a Life Foundation representative alone with Solo. Spider-Man manages to spot Weil trying to flee to a helicopter on the roof. However, the terrorist is pushes past a man working with an acetylene torch, causing the fuel tank to explode, sending Toler falling off the roof. Spider-Man manages to catch him, but this puts him at the mercy of Solo, who orders him to let Weil go, or he will shoot them both. However, Spider-Man refuses to let Solo kill the only person who can testify that his country was not responsible for the assassination attempt. Solo is impressed by Spider-Man's bravery and decides to spare him, this time, and teleports away. Back at the Symkarian embassy, Captain America learns that while Weil is in custody, he is refusing to talk. Spider-Man suggests that they find some other evidence to prove things. Captain America points out that they need to do so soon as things are growing more volitile. He explains that Symkaria has broken relations with the United States and death squads are mobilizing to kill American officials in that country, and the threat of war looms even heavier on the horizon.

Synopsis for "Finale in Red!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #325.

In order to continue their mission to stop war from starting between America and Symkaria, Captain America attempts to get Spider-Man security clearance through the Department of Defense. However, despite the recommendations of Captain America and Silver Sable, the request is denied. They explain ULTIMATUM's involvement and how their prisoner, Toler Weil, has confessed that the next assassination attempt will be on the Symkarian ambassador to the United States. Cap insists that they need Spider-Man as part of their special unit to prevent this assassination. However, since Spider-Man refuses to remove his mask and reveal his identity, the request has to be denied. Spider-Man is furious and departs, never feeling so humiliated in his life. He also never realized how much he cared about his country before this moment. Peter Parker returns to his Aunt May's home where his wife Mary Jane has finished packing up their belonging for their move to their new loft apartment.[Continuity 22] He tells Mary Jane about what happened and his desire to still do something to help. Although money is tight, Mary Jane believes they can afford the cost to send Peter to the capital.

The next day at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., Captain America briefs soldiers on his plan to guard the ambassador. After dismissing the briefing, Cap pulls Silver Sable aside and reminds her to keep her desire for vengeance in check, as they need a living witness to prevent war from happening. They are soon joined by Spider-Man who managed to break into the facility. Captain America is upset that someone was able to break into the Pentagon but accepts his help nonetheless. Spider-Man suggests that Weil spoke too easily and suspects that threat on the ambassador's life is a ruse to keep the authorities occupied while the real assassination can take place. However, Captain America and Silver Sable are committed to the current mission. When they have to get going, Captain America implies that Spider-Man should see the prisoners that are being held in the basement. The wall-crawler picks up on this, and using an ULTIMATUM costume, he pretends to be one of the terrorists who has come to help Toler Weil escape captivity. He tells Weil to escape while he "frees" the others. As Toler flees, Spider-Man tags him with a spider-tracer. Changing back into his Spider-Man costume, the wall-crawler follows after Weil.

Spider-Man is led to the National Archives, leaving Spider-Man to deduce that the real plot is to steal the US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights and pin it on Symkaria, ensuring a war between the two countries. Inside, Spider-Man is attacked by a pair of Watchdogs, but he easily incapacitates them. Knowing that the real documents are held in archives in the basement, the wall-crawler travels down into the archives through the ventilation system. There he finds members of ULTIMATUM, the Resistants, and the Sweatshop trying to blow a vault to the historical documents. Spider-Man leaps down and stops them just as their employer, the Red Skull, enters the room. The Skull is disappointed to see that Spider-Man has found him as opposed to his foe, Captain America. Still, he offers the wall-crawler a chance to join him, revealing that he is not stealing the documents, but planning on destroying them. He offers Spider-Man a briefcase full of money, briefly tempting the wall-crawler. However, he refuses out of dedication to his country. The Red Skull is disappointed and orders his minions to kill him and leaves. While Spider-Man deals with the hired mercenaries, he spots an ULTIMATUM soldier attempts to throw the switch on the bomb. Spider-Man manages to jam the detonation lever by firing a spider-tracer into the device.

Ripping open the secret door the Red Skull escaped from, he finds no trace of the villain. Still, Spider-Man had set up his camera and an audio recorder in the ventilation shaft, collecting the evidence he needs to prove that the Red Skull was behind the whole plot. Later at the Pentagon, Spider-Man turns over the evidence and is congratulated for his work. Silver Sable has also contacted the Prime Minister of Symkaria and the government there has absolved the United States of all involvement in the assassination plot. Captain America pulls Spider-Man aside and tells the wall-crawler that he wishes he could have been more of a help, but he had to do what he had to do. Spider-Man admits that he had to do the same thing, and that's all they can all ever do. With that Spider-Man webslings for home.
