Appearing in "Bug Story"Edit
Synopsis for "Bug Story"Edit
Spider-Man awakens in a bug jar in the room of a giant kid. He escapes the jar, only to be attacked by the various toys from all over the room. Meanwhile, Shirley Washington's ex-husband appears at the rebuilt Daily Grind, while Peter takes a staff position at the Bugle just before a massive headache hits. Spidey soon discovers one of Armada's robots inside a toy. When he destroys it, an enraged Armada reveals himself. Realizing he has not been shrunk, but is on a giant set, Spidey hitches a ride on the flying Armada's back and steers him up to Mysterio's control center. Mysterio hides in his mist but Spidey tracks him down, striking him, and revealing him as a robotic decoy. Not knowing if the real Mysterio was ever here, Spidey leaves Armada webbed up. As MJ and Peter move into May's old house, Peter has a headache jolt that makes him think it is something serious.
