Synopsis for "Bloodline"

As Cadaverous and his children destroy New York, Spider-Man emerges from the rubble on the Manhattan Bridge, having his right arm badly broken, but still makes a joke as his wife Mary Jane scolds him. Cadaverous and his children approach them, begging Spider-Man for help. As Spider-Man tries to fight off the children, Cadaverous impales Mary Jane from behind, throwing her off the bridge much to Peter's horror. Spider-Man catches her, but she is already dead.

At the funeral of Mary Jane, Peter grieves for his wife, while his son Ben tries to comfort him. Peter then thinks of what type of hero he is.

After 12 years, Ben, who now lives with Aunt May, prepares to go to high school, where he confronts some bully over another student and gets in trouble. Peter, who had given up the mantle of Spider-Man and is working full time as reporter on assignment, is called by the principal between his flights. After a discussion between Peter and his son, Ben walks home without him.

Somewhere else, Cadaverous is plotting his next plan alongside a woman in containment unit; meanwhile, Ben meets a girl named Faye Ito in detention and the two talk for a bit. At the same time Peter is busy taking a flight and talks to his Aunt May about Ben. After their discussion, Peter hangs up as the plane is ready for takeoff.

That night, Ben stands in a floor of blood as he witnesses his mother. As the blood covers Ben, he cries to his mother for help. He then wakes up from the nightmare only to find himself on the ceiling. Recovering himself, Ben discovers his father's equipment after Aunt May tells her grandnephew to take a look in the attic.
