Rating: 4/5

Writer: David Michelinie
Artist: Erik Larsen

Doc Ock reveals his plan to the Sinister Six. They’re to modify the satellite being used in the experiment by ESU so that it sprays poison into Earth’s atmosphere, killing everyone on the planet unless they make the Sinister Six their uncontested rulers. Ock has Hobgoblin and Mysterio steal a new element called Burundite that will provide them with immunity to the poison. Vulture and Electro are to retrieve other items necessary. Spider-Man fails to stop any of them in their various tasks. Ock has no intentions of sharing global domination with them after they are successful.

Just as Felicia is about to break Flash’s heart as payback to Peter, some thugs try to mug them (and rape her) and Flash takes them all down. Felicia is touched that somebody actually stood up for her for once.
