Synopsis
The gang war seems to settle down as the Kingpin has returned to take over his operations. As Spidey and his allies are trying to figure out their next move, they are attacked by two of Kingpin's goons. Betty returns home to find the Hobgoblin beating on Flash and she faints. Hobgoblin & Jack O' Lantern clash. Kingpin confronts his son and rival mob boss, the Rose. Kingpin calls a meeting of all of his lieutenants and is preparing to have them gunned down when Spidey, DD and the Falcon intervene. Spidey shouts it out with Kingpin but it is Daredevil who has the last word.
