“Siege”

Rating: 5/5

Writer: Gerry Conway
Artist: Sal Buscema

Bruiser, Joe Robertson’s protector friend in prison, helps him work out and become strong. Tombstone then fights Bruiser and kills him. The alarms go off and Tombstone leaves Joe, who weeps over Bruiser’s body.

Spider-Man is under gunfire by Hammerhead’s men. He sees Jonah Jameson, who tells him to come with him. He does. Jameson is actually Chameleon, but Spidey doesn’t realize that. Chameleon injects something into Spider-Man that makes him weak and woozy. Hammerhead comes in and beats him up for a bit. Spider-Man gains enough strength to knock Hammerhead out and travels to Kingpin’s building. It’s already under fire. The war with the Lobo brothers has already begun.

“Gang War, Part Two: The Arranger Must Die!”

Rating: 4/5

Writers: Tom DeFalco & Jim Owsley
Artist: Alan Kupperberg

Hammerhead decides to assassinate The Arranger. Meanwhile, Rose stays neutral in the whole gang war. The Punisher hears about the hit and goes to the meeting of the crime bosses in an attempt to kill all of them and end the war, as well as cripple the crime industry on the northeastern seaboard. Spider-Man stops him, but Punisher gases him and gets away. The hit also goes wrong, with Hobgoblin and Jack O’Lantern killing Hammerhead’s hitman. Rose and The Arranger agree to an alliance of sorts. Also, Ned Leeds explains his secrecy and lies about the “undercover assignments from Joe Robertson” that he told Betty about. Ned tells Joe he’s working on a story that’ll win him the Pulitzer Prize and give him more notoriety since Ben Urich’s articles have been getting all the front page headlines.
