Spidey is perched on the wall of a police station where an elderly man is about to commit suicide. In trying to prevent the guy from jumping, Spidey says the wrong thing and he takes the leap. Luckily, Spidey catches him before he hits the ground.
Later on at Tiffany's Spidey tells her that he doesn't feel he's cut out for the hero business. She says Angel knows of a bank heist that's going down the tomorrow and Spidey questions just where Angel gets his info and wonders why he doesn't call the cops. If he did, Angle would be in danger. Spidey feels like his life is no longer his own.

Angle sees the next edition o the Daily Bugle, which slams Spider-Man for endangering lives out in public. Angle thinks he should pay a visit to Jameson but Tiffany suggests otherwise, stating that Spidey isn't ready for this type of life and he's about to snap.
