All They Want to Do is Kill You, Spider-Man...

At Rikers Island, a mysterious figure sprung The Wizard from prison, summoning a giant Kraken-like creature to stall the pursuing prison guards. They made their way to New York, and launched a giant mechanical spider up the South Tower of the World Trade Center. After hearing this on his radio& changing into a faded Spider-Suit - a result of using detergents that were too strong to wash his itchy costume - and subsequently defeated the robot spider in no time.

However, the robot was crafted to set a homing signal on Spider-Man, which eventually led The Wizard to Peter Parker's apartment. After returning from an accident involving the collapse of a subway excavation, Spider-Man found The Wizard and the mysterious figure standing on a rooftop near his apartment block.

Amidst their brawl, The Wizard triggered some fire bombs above the apartment building, trapping a group of the residents who were having a meeting up there. After seeming rescuing all of them, Spider-Man found out there was another drunk who fell asleep at the now blazing roof.

Upon his return to the fiery rooftop, however, the weakened flooring gave way, causing Spider-Man to fall through.
