Peter has a nightmare about his black costume. He decides to have Mr. Fantastic check it out. Reed Richards discovers that Spider-Man's black costume is an alien that is trying to bond with him symbiotically. He uses a sonic blaster to separate Spidey from his costume. Spidey swings home in an old FF uniform with a paper bag for a mask. MJ drops by to talk. Hobgoblin has a little proposition for the Rose.
