Synopsis for "O, Bitter Victory!"Edit

Continued from last issue... While trying to stop the Kingpin's man, Dr. Winkler, from using a brainwash device on George Stacy, Spider-Man is attacked by the Kingpin. Their fight ends with Spidey being thrown into one of the machines, and the resulting jolt blurs his vision enough to make him ineffective in a fight, and so he flees. The Kingpin manages to complete his brainwashing and lets Stacy go. Stacy meets up with Gwen and Harry who are being told by Mary Jane about Spider-Man's appearance at the club; George alleviates any concern they have about what happened.

When Peter later tries to confront George as Peter Parker, Stacy attacks him, forcing Peter to defend himself. Gwen walks in on the situation, and her father accuses Peter of going mad and attacking him. Gwen won't listen to anything Peter says and demands that he leaves. When George is left alone again, he calls the Kingpin to advise him that Parker knows the truth. The Kingpin then sends some men after Peter, though when they arrive only Harry is at home, so they instead wreck Peter and Harry's apartment.

Deciding enough is enough, Peter decides to trail Stacy as Spider-Man and learn what the Kingpin has ordered him to do. Spider-Man photographs Stacy going into police headquarters and trying to steal top secret documents. However, he tries to stop them but is cold-clocked by Stacy, and they escape.

With evidence proving that George Stacy tried to steal these documents, Peter thinks over the moral dilemma he's in. He finally decides to sell the photos to the Daily Bugle, and Gwen is shocked to find the story on the front page, and that Peter was the one who took the pictures.

This story is continued next issue...
