Crusher Hogan is working maintenance at a boxing facility and spinning tall tales of how he helped create Spider-Man when he discovers a plot by one of the owners to take down a fighter who is thinking of moving on when his contract is up; Peter gets a frantic call from Aunt May who asks him to keep an eye on Nathan who may be in trouble with some "old friends"; As Spidey is tailing Nathan, he gets involved in the problems Crusher Hogan and Bobby Chance are having with the murderous Manslaughter; Felling the villain, Spidey fudges history a little and confirms his "close" relationship with Hogan, thus making him a hero to the other boxers; Peter visits Aunt May to tell her that he lost track of Nathan only to learn that the elderly man was beaten up badly and is now in the hospital.
