Synopsis for "Auto Motives"Edit
Spider-Man has come to the George Washington Bridge, the place where Gwen Stacy was killed, to "talk" to her about all the things that have been happening in his life recently. Among all the various threats he has faced recently, he mentions how he was approached by the advertising firm of Carter and Lombardo who have funded his construction of a Spider-Mobile as a marketing gimmick for a new motor. Although Peter thinks the idea is stupid, he could use the money. However the entire experience has gotten him feeling like his old self again, and he has a great new opportunity coming up. With his talk over, Spider-Man swings off into the city.
Later, at the Fantastic Four's Baxter Building headquarters, the Human Torch is trying to hit on Nina Pushkin, a physicist that has taken a job as Reed's lab assistant. His advances are brushed off until Reed calls her into his lab. He introduces her to his newest assistant, Peter Paker. Nina and Peter hit it off as they are familiar with each others work. Johnny is surprised to see Parker at their headquarters and to learn that not only is he lucky with women, but he is a genius as well. In the lab, Mister Fantastic shows off his newest invention, a gravity localiser that allows whatever it's trained upon to negate the laws of gravity. After his demonstration, Reed locks the device in a special safe in order, giving Peter the pass-code. After the end of the day, Peter and Nina head out, and she is seemingly happy to have met him.
However this is only a pretence, she soon heads to an abandoned warehouse where she meets her employer, the Red Ghost and his Super-Apes, who has hired her to spy on Richards so he can steal his the device. The next day, Peter is at the Daily Bugle telling Joe Robertson about Reed's invention. However Robinson is at a loss why Peter doesn't have any new Spider-Man photos for them. Peter admits that he has actually come to talk. He confides in Joe about how George Stacy told him to take care of Gwen and wonders if it's his fault for not being able to save her. Joe tries to tell Peter that the only people responsible for her death were the Green Goblin and Spider-Man. Joe suddenly notices that Peter left while he wasn't looking.
Back at the Baxter Building, Johnny is working away on a car fuming over how he's been rejected by Nina. However his thoughts about Nina, and Crystal are interrupted by the arrival of Spider-Man who has come to take the Torch up on the driving lessons he promised. Out on the road in the Spider-Mobile, Johnny realises -- to his horror -- how bad Spider-Man is at driving. They are soon pulled over by the police who tell the two heroes that Stilt-Man had just robbed a jewellery store. They try to pursue Stilt-Man, but he manages to get away while they are stuck in traffic. Pulling over to get some snacks, they see a television report about how Daredevil managed to stop Stilt-Man. When they go back out they find that someone has boosted the Spider-Mobile, much to the Torch's continued aggravation. When Johnny makes a comment about being "driven off the wall", it gives Spider-Man some inspiration.
They go back to the Baxter Building, where Spider-Man installs the gravitational localizer that will allow the Spider-Mobile to drive up walls. While they are working, they begin talking about girls. Johnny mentions how Crystal was forced to return to Attilan, while Spider-Man confides that the love of his life is dead. When Johnny tells the wall-crawler that he doesn't have to be a super-hero all the time, Spider-Man explains that he can't stop.After they are finished their work, they take the Spider-Mobile out for a test drive. It's about this time that Nina and Red Ghost break into the Baxter Building to try and steal the localizer. When they find it gone they soon discover where it went when they witness news reports about Spider-Man and the Torch driving around town. The Red Ghost and his Super-Apes then ambush the two heroes out on their joy ride. However their attempts to steal the Spider-Mobile are foiled thanks to the Super-Ape's love of fruit pies. With the Red Ghost incapacitated with the localizer, Reed and SHIELD are called in to collect the Red Ghost and his apes. They explain the situation to Reed, and when he wonders how they got the code to the lock, Spider-Man tells him that Peter Parker gave it to him. Although Spider-Man finds out his alter-ego will get fired, he convinces Mister Fantastic to let him drive around on the side of the Daily Bugle building before returning to localizer.
