“Foreign Affairs”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Peter David
Artist: Alan Kupperberg

Black Cat escapes and goes back to Foreigner and they become intimate. Silver Sable gives Jameson back his money and says she’s changed her mind. Peter goes to the police office to find Keating, but he’s out. Peter intercepts a call to him from Black Cat asking him to meet her. Spider-Man then shows up at Foreigner’s house and fights him. Foreigner is the superior fighter at first by use of hypnosis but once Spidey figures out his trick, he gets the upper hand. Then the police come and Foreigner slips away. Before they arrest Spidey, Black Cat throws down some pictures showing that Keating was responsible for Blaze’s death and Spidey is cleared. Later, Peter gets a letter from Black Cat where she apologizes for the double cross, but says she was playing Foreigner at the same time. She meant for Peter to hear the phone call and to get the call for Keating. Mary Jane is there and Peter and her probably become intimate. Silver Sable and Foreigner are talking in his other hideout where he explains that he killed the real Keating long ago and has been impersonating him. Foreigner and Silver Sable reveal they used to be married.

“Spider Hunt”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Peter David
Artist: Alan Kupperberg

J. Jonah Jameson hires Silver Sable to hunt Spider-Man and bring him to justice for the murder of Blaze. Keating actually killed Blaze and then publicly blamed Spider-Man. Betty Leeds is going looney after the loss of her husband. Spider-Man trusts Black Cat as she curses Foreigner for double crossing her. One of Sable’s goons who’s trying to take down Spidey is the SHIELD agent who shot that kid a while back. He says he was fired from SHIELD and Spider-Man takes off the guy’s uniform and webs him up so it’ll hurt worse than a bandaid when they rip it off. He returns home and overhears Black Cat talking to Foreigner over the phone saying that Spider-Man naively trusts her and that Keating says the frame is solid.

“Compulsion!”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Peter David
Artist: Rich Buckler

Three college students invent a super villain called Blaze to mess with Spider-Man and see if they can break him. Though they never intend for an actual version of the villain to appear. One of the students feels bad and bails out. He then contacts Spider-Man and Human Torch to play a prank (of sorts) on the other two. Human Torch pretends to be some lunatic who actually becomes Blaze and challenges Spidey to a fight. They fight and the student who’s in on the prank gets “burned” in the crossfire. The other two then confess to Spider-Man and Captain Jean DeWolff what they did.
