Synopsis for "Dead Meat"Edit

Venom returns to his New York fallout shelter hideout. Spidey helps a policeman capture a bank robber but doesn't take pictures since JJJ is only buying "anti-Spidey" photos from Nick Katzenberg. The Parkers need money for their legal hassles with Jonathon Caesar but MJ has another last-minute job cancellation, Peter's spider-sense goes off when Glory Grant's boyfriend Eduardo Lobo appears but he doesn't know why.

The Black Cat tracks Peter to Bedford Towers but finds the apartment empty. Venom appears and mercilessly beats her, seeking Peter's location, but the Cat doesn't know. Through her agony, her one thought is that Venom mentioned Peter has a wife. MJ spots Venom and tells Peter. Spidey searches and finds him at a meat packing plant. As they fight, Venom dumps a vat of blood and offal on Spidey who panics and flees. Venom finds Peter's regular clothing with a "We've Moved" note showing May's Forest Hills address.
