Appearing in "Skin Deep, Part Three"Edit
Synopsis for "Skin Deep, Part Three"Edit
Charlie blames Peter for the lab accident that permanently grafted his experimental armor to his skin. He tells Peter that if he doesn't help him get the remaining money from Tony Stark's grant, he'll kill Peter and his loved ones. Charlie says he's going to go back to his apartment, get his checkbook, and write a check payable to Peter for all of the money he's got left from Stark. Peter will then go in to a bank, cash the check, and then give the money back to Charlie.
While gathering his things in his apartment, Charlie sees his old high school bully and his wife (Charlie's high school crush) on TV talking about him. Word of his accident has gotten out and the press are interviewing people who knew him. The bully acts like he was always sympathetic towards Charlie and even tried to help him fit in with the popular crowd. This lie prompts a flashback where we see this bully trick him in to talking to the cheerleaders so that he can knock him down, take his pants, and embarrass him in front of the girls. Enraged, Charlie goes to the bully's house and murders him. During this time, Peter goes to Mary Jane's rehearsal and tells her to grab May and check in to a hotel after she's finished. He anticipates things with Charlie not going well.Later, Spider-Man is waiting in ambush at the spot where Charlie and Peter are supposed to meet. Spider-Man attacks, but accidentally reveals that he knows Charlie's name. This leads Charlie to assume that Peter told Spider-Man to ambush him. Thinking Peter betrayed him, Charlie escapes to make good on his promise to murder Peter's loved ones. The issue ends with Charlie breaking in to Aunt May's house.

Synopsis for "And Death Shall Come!"Edit
This issues begins with Spider-Man fighting with Doctor Octopus. After hiding inside a building, Doctor Octopus' tentacles come after Spider-Man but stop just in time when they can't find him.
Spidey manages to place a Spider-Tracer on the tentacles so he can find Doctor Octupus later when he has a chance to recuperate.
Exhausted, he changes back to Peter Parker and is found by George Stacy who, once Peter is rested, remarks that he has never known anyone with such amazing powers of recuperation. Spider-Man leaves the Stacy's house and swings back home to work through the night on a way to defeat Doctor Octopus. He manages to come up with a fluid that will essentially block Doctor Octopus's control over his tentacles.
In the morning Spider-Man sets out to find Doctor Octopus and comes across his Spider-Tracer in an empty room. Doctor Octopus had found the tracer and placed it there as a trap for Spider-Man. Engaged in battle, Spider-Man starts spraying Doctor Octopus' tentacles with the new web fluid he made overnight. Suddenly the arms lose control and start fighting each other and then turn against their owner and even as they wildly fling around they hit a chimney sending bricks crashing to the ground.
Meanwhile on the ground there stands a child directly in the path of the falling bricks and Captain Stacy also in the crowd below pushes the child out of the way to save him. Unfortunately Captain Stacy is hit full on with the bricks and Spider-Man goes down to save him. Pulling him out of the rubble and once atop the rooftop, Stacy dies in Spider-Man's hands, but not without first revealing that he knows Spider-Man is Peter Parker.
Spider-Man is given instructions to look after Gwen Stacy, while Spider-Man worries that she may learn that her father died because of him.
