Appearing in "Crossfire, Part One"Edit
Synopsis for "Crossfire, Part One"Edit
Peter, wearing Ben's Scarlet Spider costume, visits Detective Raven to convince him of Parker's innocence. Raven bears the same facial mark, recently caused by Kaine (in SM #57, '95), as the murdered Doc Ock, Grim Hunter, and Salt Lake City detective Louise Kennedy for whose killing Peter was arrested. Raven believes Peter and Ben are the same man and seeks their connection to Kaine. Peter returns home to find Mary Jane upset over Seward Trainer's test that shows Peter's irradiated blood may affect their unborn baby. Before the conversation is finished, Traveller renders MJ unconscious. Studying how much suffering Spider- Man will bear for others, he presents Peter with a globe containing Aunt May's soul and offers to restore her to life if Peter will allow the sacrifice of another. Peter believes it's illusory, but crushes the globe and frees May anyway. Traveller admits the ruse, then transports them twenty-four hours forward. New York is destroyed. This, he says, is all too real and all Peter's fault.

Synopsis for "An Amazing World"Edit
The story started with Peter re-capping his very short career at this time including his origin and then a visit to his Uncle Ben's grave with his Aunt May.
A crooked furniture salesman trying to make a deal with May claimed that Ben ordered some furniture as a surprise to her.
Later, as Spider-Man, Peter views the same salesman trying out the same scam on another potential victim.
Spider-Man then follows the man to a warehouse where he finds a group of men targeting widows and widowers for financial gain.
The group is led by a man named the Undertaker whom Spider-Man confronts.
The group of men are soon called upon, armed at this point, and the very first use of his Spider-Sense aids Spider-Man in dodging the gunfire.
Confused as to what just happens, Spider-Man begins to attack the group of men with his newly found Spider-Sense.
The men are caught and tied up in a neat little package for the police.
On his way home, Spider-Man helps out a couple in his first breakup of a hold-up or mugging.
The story ends with Aunt May viewing the news of the events on television as a mysterious woman telekinetically moves a tractor upon the top of an construction site seemingly amused at her newly realized powers setting the stage for next issue.
This is a UK title that features reprints of American Spider-Man titles.
