Blackie manages to escape for long enough to get the wings, and escapes just before the prison guards find him. Blackie then makes a helmet and goes on a one-man crime spree.
At Empire State University, Peter Parker is forced to go home because of his bad cold. He hears about Blackie's crime spree and goes out to try and stop him.
