Synopsis
Spider-Man is awoken by mysterious messages, but he ignores them. Morpheus arrives to tell him about the Matrix, but he takes the blue pill. Hulk then takes the red pill and is sucked away. Morpheus persists with Spider-Man, knocking over the walls and showing him the real world: the Toyfare offices. He introduces him to the other freedom fighters; then takes him to the Oracle, Cookie Monster. The freedom fighters battle for freedom by sabotaging the Toyfare staff office. The staff kicks them out, Morpheus is killed, and Spider-Man returns. Elsewhere, Hulk is now the new editor.
