Synopsis

NASA invites both Peter and Sally-Ann Beaumont from Empire State University's science committee to witness the landing of their Mars probe, Explorer One at an island location. The probe, containing radioactive soil samples, lands on target on the island's beach. However, the Sandman, who was hiding in the surrounding sand, steals the soil sample and intends to absorb it into his body, with the radiation contained in it making him more powerful. Spider-Man and the military do battle with him. However, Spider-Man is unable to prevent Sandman from absorbing the Martian soil after his mask is accidentally ripped off during their fight, forcing him to retreat. Unfortunately, as a result of donning his Spider-Man costume, Peter is then accused of negligence by Sally-Ann, after he was nowhere to be seen during the Sandman's fight, and faces dismissal from the college. After donning a new spider-suit complete with mask, and forgetting to shut his closet door, Spider-Man sets about trying to get to the school board meeting by four o'clock in order to prevent himself from being thrown out of college. Meanwhile, the Sandman begins a crime spree by stealing money from the First City Bank and then sets out to steal gold from the New York Gold Reserve. With his new radioactive powers, the police and Spider-Man are helpless to stop him. Spidey ends up in the position of having to exonerate himself in front of the school board by four o'clock, shut his closet door before Aunt May discovers his spare spider-suits, and stop the radioactive-powered Sandman.
