Synopsis for "Death of Spider-Man: Part 1"
Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson are having lunch when they are visited by a very begrudging Steve Rogers, who tells Peter to suit up and meet him for training. Peter meets Rogers at a cemetery, where they begin a lesson on fighting smart versus fighting foolishly, and how one can lead soldiers right into a cemetery like the one they are standing in. Rogers gets called away by Carol Danvers, stating that Nick Fury and his Avengers have gone rogue. Peter follows Rogers to the Queensborough Bridge, where he witnesses a massive explosion.
Meanwhile, Norman Osborn, once again transformed into the Green Goblin, escapes the Triskelion, along with Dr. Octopus, Sandman, Kraven the Hunter, Electro and the Vulture. They hide in an apartment building near Central Park. They witness the explosion on the news, and Osborn states that since S.H.I.E.L.D. is occupied it is the perfect time to do "God's work": kill Spider-Man.
