Rating: 3/5

Writer: David Michelinie

MJ is waiting in Pete’s apartment. Pete comes home and tells what happened to him. He jumped out of the mountain just before the explosion, but it still did some damage to him. His costume was in rags so he stole a trench coat from a farmer. Then he hitchhiked to Delaware where he was arrested for stealing a pie. A corrupt officer there took him to a mansion where the owner hunts prisoners. He managed to avoid dying, took out the corrupt officer and eccentric millionaire and was set free from jail. Then jumped on a truck back to New York. At the end, Peter is about to board a train and is pushed onto the platform. He quickly avoids getting hit by the train and is shaking because his spider sense didn’t warn him.
