Somebody tries to kill Peter as he walks down the sidewalk. MJ suspects Jonathan Caesar. She looks at guns on the way to work. Jonathan Caesar makes her director write a note to meet him and then kills him. At the satellite launch, the Sinister Six attacks and Peter changes into Spider-Man and goes into action. He gets some good punches in, but Ock’s plan eventually goes into motion and the poison is placed and the rocket is launched. Sandman turns on Ock and the rest, threats be damned, and then Ock turns him into glass. Hobgoblin sprays Spidey with poison and says he has 15 seconds to live.

The Amazing Spider-Man #337 (1990)

“Return of the Sinister Six, Part Four: Rites and Wrongs”

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.

Jonathan Caesar plans to take MJ to his private island in the Caribbean so she can’t escape again.
