The main story:
Spider-Man is in Shanghai working with Mockingbird of SHIELD to recover stolen secure servers from Parker Industries. Those responsible are from an organisation called Zodiac, the Leo Sect to be exact. Spider-Man and Mockingbird pursue them in the “Spider-Mobile” through the streets. Using specialised webs Spider-Man takes out there car, mocking bird takes out the bad guys and they reclaim the servers.
Peter makes is back to Shanghai office in time for a press conference where he is labeled a poor mans Tony Stark. He conducts the whole conference with his fly down. But more importantly he announces the The Uncle Ben Foundation to use his company and its technology to better the world for the less fortunate.
Meanwhile Prowler has been posing as Spiderman in New York so cover Peter’s identity. Peter returns to New York to attend the Wedding of Max Modell and his partner Hector.
During the wedding they are attacked by the Zodiac demanding Peter surrender. Prowler posing as Spider-Man unsuccessfully tries to stop the Zodiac ships. To save any one from being hurt, or worse he gives up his tech that they are after.
We then find he’s encrypted the tech, but it will take only 24hrs for them to crack it, so they need to move fast. He Prowler to find them… as Prowler so the real Spider-Man can stop them.
Peter confronts Sajani Jaffrey (his business partner) that he knows she’s been dealing under the table, but simply tells her it’s not to happen again.
Back in London an upset Sajani demands a step up in the nanotechnology program time table. A robot called “Living Brain” is present and it is implied the robot is linked to Doc Ock.
The minor story’s:
Sorry I have no intention to review them as they deal with the other Spider men and women, except to say they show Regent is alive and in this universe.
I enjoyed this much more Spider-Gwen. The Spider-Mobile I’m not so keen on… it was cool and all but did feel… wel Spider-Man ish. Peter owning a successful multinational business is a real story changer. It’s great to see him doing so well, but apart of me is just waiting for him to fall now. And Doc Ock’s consciousness is soooooo in that robot … I just know it.
