Synopsis:
Harry has ratted out Spider-Man to his dad and, as a reward for his loyalty, Norman shows his son his plans for turning him into a super hero, the American Son; Spidey has been caught impersonating his evil counterpart on the Dark Avengers and Norman has strung him up to be tortured by Hawkeye; Thanks to the unstable molecules in the black Spidey suit Reed Richards made for him, Spider-Man's mask won't come off and, with the promise of learning his secret identity a wash, Hawkeye changes into his old Bullseye suit to simply deliver as much pain as possible to the web slinger before he kills him; Norman discovers that some of Stark's Iron Man tech can freeze unstable molecules and he uses it on Spidey, making his mask do a slow dissolve; Before his identity is revealed, Spidey breaks free and begins to attack Norman and Bullseye; Harry discovers a serum to cure Lily of her Malice persona but, just as he is getting ready to use it, discovers that Lily not only likes being the goblin like Malice but that the child she is carrying is not his but his father's; As Norman beats on Spidey and tries to rip off his mask, Harry puts on his American Son armor and comes to the rescue.
