Spider-Man; GUESTS: Black Cat; Mrs. Muggins; VILLAIN: Sandman
In a throwback to the post Secret War days, Spidey's alien costume knocks him unconscious before making a little time with the Black Cat and defeating the Sandman. Peter wakes up the next morning and can't figure out why he is so blasted tired.

Peter is ecstatic after making a date with Betty but gets very depressed when Sandman beats Spider-Man. Tired of seeing Peter sulking during their date, Betty gives him a pep talk and Spidey swings off to take the Sandman down.

Spidey returns Jonah to the Bugle after saving him from the Hitman, but is Jonah even the least bit grateful? Aunt May has a heart attack during a protest for the rights of the elderly but, whew, she's O.K. Flash returns to his apartment to find it trashed and the Green Goblin waiting. Spidey intervenes but is gripped by terror when the Goblin throws Flash from a window.
