- The darkness that blankets this city is nothing. Nothing! Not compared to the shroud that Spider-Man pulled over me! He stole my life... shattered it... then cast it aside like yesterday's news! So it is only fitting, only fair, that I do the same to him! And I will. Very... very... soon!

Synopsis for "Chance Encounter"Edit
Chance murders government witness Orin Concardi for Roland Treece who recommends him to Life Foundation head Carlton Drake. From her Cloisters photo shoot, MJ leaves a phone message for Peter that they may get a condo at the exclusive Bedford Towers. At the Bugle. Peter makes a deal with Joy Mercado to shoot pictures and take notes of a foreign arms shipment at Pier 17. Back at their apartment, Peter greets Mary Jane as a scantily clad Chippendale dancer, except MJ has Sandy with her. Drake contacts Chance, hiring him to steal the Pier 17 shipment. When Chance attacks, Spider-Man engages him, forcing him to flee, though the munitions are successfully stolen. Spider-Man tags him with a spider-tracer. Back at the Life Foundation, Drake renders Chance unconscious. As Pete returns to MJ, a man in a South Bronx building vows revenge on Spider-Man as a black substance oozes over his hands.
