At ESU, Max Dillon falls into a tank of genetically altered raisin eels and turns into Electro. Spider-Man fights him on the Night Street and accidentally neutralizes him.
O’Hirn is experimented on by Otto Octavius and is covered in a fluid that causes him to become the Rhino. He goes to the Daily Bugle and attacks Peter Parker. He turns into Spider-Man, but is knocked five floors down and climbs back up to the top floor, battling Hunter Killers and defeats Rhino.
The mysterious Hobgoblin attacks a demolition site and Spider-Man battles Hunter Killers until he fights Hobgoblin which results in the demolition. However, Hobgoblin escapes.
Later, John Jameson’s shuttle crashes on the Brooklyn bridge, so Spider-Man goes to save him. He finds Rhino stealing a Prometheus X, and is exposed to a liquid pouring out of the rock. He then defeats Rhino and he is arrested.
That night, a symbiote from the Prometheus X bonds with Peter and casts a black suit around him. He then uses information from Rhino to head to the Crime Tower, where he encounters the Kingpin and his Spider-Slayers. After defeating Kingpin, his professor Alistaire Smythe discovers there is no essence on the Prometheus X and Spider-Man almost kills Kingpin.

He then discovers Eddie Brock has been captured by Shocker. He follows his trail in a subway up a Bell Tower, fighting Spider-Slayers and Shocker until he almost drops him from the top of a building. He then realizes the black suit is changing him and throws it off the tower, but it lands on the all-too willing host of Eddie Brock, creating Venom.
Peter brings part of it to Curt Connors, who studies it and discovers it is a symbiote, and the rest is still out there. Spider-Man battles symbiotes and Venom, defeating him by luring him to a shuttle Launch Base, then causing the symbiote to separate and then attaching it to the shuttle. He then brings Eddie to Ravencroft.
Spider-Man later stumbles upon an abandoned warehouse and finds Kingpin and Landon passed out. Landon informs him that Alistaire Smythe fell into a neogentic pool and became part human, part lizard, part chameleon, part rhino and part mechanical, the Ultimate Slayer. Spider-Man manages to calm him by bringing him to his father after defeating him and he leaves.
Peter finds out that Curt Connors has disappeared. He discovers he was studying an ancient civilization and goes to India, where he finds Curt mutated into the Lizard again and cures him, then defeats Toomstone, who is revealed to be in partnership with the Kingpin. He manages to get back to New York with Connors and Toomstone also escapes with his life.

At the Docks, Spider-Man encounters another of Oscorp’s agents, Kraven the Hunter. During the fight, his arm is cut, but he still manages to defeat Kraven. Dr. Stromm then extracts the blood Kraven tore out.
Norman, enraged that they are going bankrupt, merges the key components of Spider-Man’s blood with the symbiote part taken from the piece stolen from Curt Connors and uses it on himself, which causes him to severely wound Stromm. The Green Goblin kidnaps J. Jonah Jameson, Anastasia Hardy, her daughter Felicia Hardy and the Kingpin and brings them to Oscorp.

Dr. Kafka and Dr. Connors get Eddie out of the symbiote, but Kafka is taken by Carnage. Eddie rebonds with the symbiote and becomes Venom again, but teams up with Spider-Man and Iron Man to defeat Carnage.

However, they turn out to be a decoy set up by the Hobgoblin and Spider-Man defeats him and wounds his right leg, but escapes, then Spider-Man chases him and discovers him to be Jason Philip Macendale, which his father Roderick confers to be addiction to gases and anger at Hammerhead. Nick Fury calls Spider-Man and reports that John Hardesky, whom he realizes is Felicia Hardy’s father, has been captured from S.H.I.E.L.D. custody by Toomstone. As a young boy, he was tricked by Germans such as the Red Skull into stealing the super soldier formula that created Captain America, but managed to realize how evil they were in time and escaped without giving them anything. At the Crime Tower, Spider-Man is unmasked as Peter Parker to Felicia, under Doctor Octopus’ custody. Octopus almost kills John Hardesky, but Felicia manages to escape and injects herself with the improved super soldier serum recreated by Landon. Thanks to it, she gains the ability to turn into the Black Cat and helps Spider-Man defeat Toomstone, then becomes his partner. Two mercenaries known as Chameleon and Quentin Beck, frame Spider-Man for crimes. Spider-Man and Black Cat go on a Boat Chase as they try to rob Mayor Water’s party and confront Quentin Beck on a jetpack.
