Synopsis for "Truth Hurts"

Returning home, Gabriel O'Hara tells his mother about how Tyler Stone kidnapped his ex-girlfriend Kasey Nash and had the Public Eye beat him.[Continuity 1] Hearing all this, Conchata O'Hara tells her son to rest and that she will be back soon. Outside of Gabriel's apartment, Conchata realizes that this is all up to her since neither of her boys are much good in a fight.

Meanwhile, Spider-Man is engaged in the battle with the cyborg bounty hunter known as Venture.[Continuity 2] Venture is surprised by how much more feisty that Spider-Man has become since their last battle. Spider-Man remarks that this time he is not afraid. With the tide of battle changing, Venture tries to escape, but Spider-Man follows after him. Spider-Man is spoiling for a fight because he is sick of being attacked. The pair ends up in a rail station where Spider-Man traps him on the rail of a Mag-Lev track. Although a train hits the bounty-hunter, it only makes him angry. Venture begins opening fire, but Spider-Man finally incapacitates him with Venture's own weaponized staff. However, Venture is only playing possum and manages to snare Spider-Man by launching his fists from his wrists.

At the same time, Xian Kwan has just finished repairing Miguel's virtual assistant back up and running.[Continuity 3] That's when Miguel's current fiancee, Dana D'Angelo arrives and is unhappy to see Miguel's ex in his apartment.[Continuity 4] While back at the train station, Spider-Man has been pinned to the ground. Even though he is at Venture's mercy, he learns that the bounty hunter wasn't attacking him, but was coming to thank the hero for defeating his sister, Risque. He warns Spider-Man that there is time to when he should use his powers. As Spider-Man leaves, Venture then turns to his sister and starts to mercilessly beat her.

With his conflict with Venture over, Spider-Man heads back to Alchemax so he can finally confront Tyler Stone for having his brother beaten. The hero waits outside for Tyler to head home at the end of the workday. Spider-Man then hitches a ride on the bottom of Stone's vehicle back to his mansion. When the ship begins to land, Spider-Man leaps down to sneak inside. Unknown to Spider-Man, Tyler Stone has an unexpected visit from Conchata O'Hara. She has come to confront Tyler for having her son beaten up. She also asks him to let Kasey Nash go free with a clean record. Hearing this makes Tyler Stone laugh out loud. As Spider-Man sneaks into the room, he overhears his mother demanding that Tyler stop torturing his family. Stone insists that it is all business, but she warns him that if he doesn't stop she will tell his former father-in-law how his wife really died. Spider-Man is shocked when he sees Stone kiss his mother. He tells her that she was the only woman who was a match for him. He then promises to let Kasey go with a clean record. He then assures her that he didn't really hook Miguel on Rapture. It was just a simulation that would make him feel the effects of rapture for three days. Hearing this, Spider-Man is horrified to learn this, because he didn't have to try an alter his DNA, leading to the accident that gave him his spider powers.[Continuity 5]

He then hears something even more shocking: Miguel hears his mother admit that she had an affair with Tyler Stone and that he is Miguel's biological father. She warns Tyler Stone that if he ever tells her son the truth, she will kill him.
