Jonah manages to get a copy of the Daily Bugle, but doesn't recognize it because it has been re-branded as the DB.

Charlie meets Wolverine in a cemetery waiting for him to kill her before she is captured. Spider-Man stops Wolverine from cutting a fatal blow and they fight. Spider-Man is forced to rely completely on his spider-sense against Wolverine, who will not stop. A spotlight from a helicopter shines down on them, catching Spider-Man in its glare. Just then his spider-sense goes nuts, so he turns and punches by instinct. However, it isn't Wolverine attacking him but Charlie. She falls to the ground and dies. Wolverine and Peter leave East Berlin. Peter is haunted by the fatal punch as he travels home. Mary Jane arrives and hugs him to help the pain go away.
