When a pyromaniac was about to set fire to an unused hospital, the building blew up right in front of him, before the Molotov-wielding man could commit his crime. Upon further investigation, Spider-Man discovered that the combustion was due to the acts of a revived Molten Man. Knowing quite clearly where the heated villain would head next, the web-slinger decided to pay Harry Osborn and Liz Allen a visit in their New Jersey suburban home.
The issue ends with a doused and defeated Molten Man lying unconscious at the base of an empty swimming pool, its water steamed up by the villain's then diminished flames. Seeing how peaceful and friendly Harry and Liz's newfound neighborhood was when compared to the city, Spider-Man decided to leave them be in this Eden of an oblivion.
