Synopsis for "Second Chance Hero"
While on a Nick Fury-enforced stakeout to make sure that Osborn, who has fully recovered, doesn't regress back to the Goblin, Peter as Spider-Man finds his arch-enemy in an Iron Man armor, now known as Iron Patriot. Suspicious, Spider-Man follows Iron Patriot to a rooftop where he begins fighting the Frightful Four. After the Frightful Four are defeated via a team-up between the hero and the other guy, Spider-Man states that Iron Patriot still isn't considered an actual hero, and also states that S.H.I.E.L.D. still isn't convinced that he hasn't turned over a new leaf. During the altercation which grows violent, the TV screen that J. Jonah Jameson is broadcasting on falls and is caught by Iron Patriot while Spider-Man saves the people. This starts to convince Peter, but Nick Fury gives orders to Spider-Man to bring in Iron Patriot. When Spider-Man confronts Iron Patriot, they are attacked by Doctor Octopus's new Spider-Soldier Army. During the fight, it turned out that Doctor Octopus had finished Osborn's plans of a Spider-Soldier army. Iron Patriot has Spider-Man get Harry, who discovers Norman's identity, out of his lab. Iron Patriot catches the falling elevator that Spider-Man and Harry are on, and the Spider-Soldiers are chased away. Osborn's new ego causes Harry to make amends with both his father and Spider-Man, though Nick Fury states that Osborn will still be watched, something Osborn accepts. Later, Peter and Fury play a board game seen earlier, and when Peter wins, Fury destroys all the pieces with a grenade.
- Captain America and Iron Man only appear in Spider-Man's imagination.
- Fin Fang Foom only appears as a game piece in the board game being played at the beginning of the episode.
- The version of the Iron Patriot armor Norman Osborn wears in this episode more closely resembles the version James Rhodes wore in the film Iron Man 3 rather than the one worn by his mainstream comics counterpart.
