“The Osborn Legacy”

The gift Harry asks Aunt May to deliver to Peter is a Jack-in-the-Box with a Goblin head. There’s also a stuffed Spider-Man in Peter’s bed that explodes. He goes to check on Liz and the others upstairs, but they’re gone and only a note saying “Gotcha!” remains. Spider-Man goes out and finds Harry at his old house in New Jersey. Harry’s having dinner with his family and Molten Man (Liz’s brother). After failed attempts to convince Harry he needs help, Spider-Man fights him. He knocks him out, webs him up, and calls the police. As they load him into the truck, Goblin says he knows Spider-Man’s secret identity but won’t reveal it just yet. Then he laughs maniacally.

“The Night the World Died”

Aunt May has trouble sleeping as she remembers the night Ben died. She’s blamed Spider-Man for all the death in her life, but is coming to realize that he’s not to blame.
