Magneto decides to go after Spider-Man himself. Flash is training to become a boxer. Spider-Man decides to test his powers out and goes to an automobile wrecking yard by the bay. He blasts a stack of cars with an immense energy blast. He lifts a multi-ton barge as if it didn’t weigh anything. Magneto arrives and fights him. He attacks using a crane. Spider-Man unintentionally turns the crane into glass. Magneto throws some cars at Spidey, but he makes a giant bat out of webbing and knocks them out to the bay.

Trapster (a villain who shoots grease and cement-like paste) attacks Spider-Man, defeats him, and leaves him for dead. Spider-Man manages to get free of the paste after Trapster leaves. Turns out that a group of villains (Wizard, Magneto, Dr. Doom, and Kingpin) got together and are trying to kill each others enemies. During an experiment in the lab at school, something goes wrong with a machine and Peter gets hit with some kind of extra-dimensional energy. Weird things start happening. He grabs a power line and doesn’t get electrocuted and his senses are extremely heightened. He hears Trapster talking about him from miles away and goes to him and fights him. Spidey makes a giant hand out of his webbing and crushes a rocket then shoots energy out of his fingers and defeats Trapster.
