They fight for a while before Spider-Man shows up and helps out. Thunderball creates a distraction and Midnight knocks down Spidey and Darkhawk and gets away with Thunderball. He sends a flying platform down into a crowd of people as a distraction for the heroes. Also, The Punisher gets info about the Secret Empire out of some druggie and then kills him (in self defense).

Spider-Man and Black Cat both visit Kingpin independently. Spidey gets stopped on the roof by The Spot, but figures out a way to beat him. He then fights Kingpin and Kingpin agrees to leave Black Cat alone forever. Black Cat learns that her bad luck powers will make Spidey have worse and worse luck until he dies, the longer they hang around each other. Before she can break up with him, he breaks up with her because he feels they are too different. She’s too amoral and is only interested in the costumed, super powered identity. They go their separate ways. The symbiote crawls into Peter’s closet just before he goes to grab his suit to go out again.
