“Gang War, Part Four: …And There Shall Come a Reckoning”
Writer: Jim Owsley
Artist: Erik Larsen
Daredevil wants Spider-Man to stop getting involved in the gang war because he’s just making a bigger mess of things. Spider-Man is angry at Daredevil for trying to stop him from saving lives. Daredevil tries to sneak Kingpin back into the city. Peter catches wind of this by way of Ned Leeds, who got a tip about it. Spider-Man stops the motorcade and fights Kingpin only to realize it was a decoy and it was just Daredevil dressed as Kingpin. Daredevil safely snuck Kingpin in a different way. He wants Kingpin back to establish some kind of order in New York’s criminal world again. Instead of this chaos that’s killing civilians in the cross fire. Hobgoblin shows up as Kingpin enters his office and says he’s cut ties with Rose and gets some information about Soviet Spy operatives during the cold war. The very same info that Ned Leeds was talking about to Joe Robertson a bit ago for his Pulitzer Prize story he’s working on. Kingpin knows who Rose is and intends to destroy him.
