Spidey takes the battle directly to the source of his troubles, the previously invisible hand, who has been secretly conducting his villain-of-the-week attacks. But the Big Man offers a surprising solution to Spidey’s problems, a tempting offer he doesn’t think our hero can afford to refuse. Will Spidey do the right thing?
