Spidey receives a very warm welcome after rescuing a cat from a sewer for its young owner. He is enjoying the Bugle's new stance now it is owned by Thomas Fireheart. One of the bystanders even comments: “Everything they say about you in the Bugle is true!”
The Molten Man is back in town and buying a hot dog. At MJ and Pete's, Liz shows up while MJ is showing Kristy some pictures. Liz tells MJ that her brother (Molten Man) is out of prison and wants $10k from her.
Pete comes home and agrees to wait in Liz and Harry's apartment. A woman shows up from the state saying that Harry is in violation of a law that prohibits him from turning commercial property into residential. As she's in the apartment, Molten Man buzzes the flat. Pete shoves the woman into a closet and changes to Spidey.
They fight and Molten Man throws Spidey into a fridge before hurling it (and him!) down an elevator shaft. Spidey pops out and hurls Molten Man into the power cables knocking him out.
Shortly after, Molten Man has come to his senses. He is a lot calmer and he, Harry and Liz make up to the point where Harry offers him a job. Meanwhile, the woman is still locked in the cupboard!
