Joe Robertson summons Spider-Man. Spidey meets him at his prison cell but it’s a trap and Tombstone punches him and Joe injects Spidey with some kind of virus (probably the same used by Chameleon earlier). Spider-Man’s weak and Tombstone beats the crap out of him and chains him up. They attempt a prison break. Friends of Tombstone’s come in helicopters and starts shooting up the place. Tombstone grabs Joe and jumps onto a helicopter. Spider-Man grabs on as it takes off. Joe finally gets the courage to stand up to Tombstone and puts him in a chokehold and jumps out of the helicopter with him. Spider-Man tells the pilot to take him down.
