Quote1 This isn't good. Haven't seen him since the massacre. He was part of a crew of super villains that Carnage led through New York City, slaughtering as many civilians as they could. The worst part is the madness spread. Everyday people started rioting... murdering. It was mayhem. Quote2

Synopsis for the 1st StoryEdit

An armored truck is being chased by a sedan with Doppelganger, a duplicate of Spider-Man, following from above.

At the same time at a Medical Supply Expo attended by Tony Stark, Michael Hall, a computer manufacturer, shows the crowd a new kind of prosthetic arm that is controlled by a chip that functions by reading thoughts. Stark leaves at the end of the presentation and, wondering how Hall could pull off this technology, calls Pepper Potts and asks her to gather information on all of his companies.

Suddenly, he sees Doppelganger and the car chase and changes into his Iron Man armor. Then, he calls Peter Parker, currently trying to enjoy his down time, and tells him to meet him on the West Side Highway. As Iron Man follows after the three of them, Doppelganger lands on top of the armored truck, bringing it to a halt. Iron Man orders him to surrender, but is instead covered in webs, allowing Doppelganger a chance to escape.

Spider-Man arrives shortly after and, based on Iron Man's description of the enemy, realizes that they are after Doppelganger and recalls the mayhem that occurred when he last saw him working with Carnage and other villians, including Shriek, who has the ability to make people form rioting mobs and kill others. Then, a mob attacks and surrounds them and the armored truck. A woman leaves the sedan and tells Doppelganger to stop the truck.

As Spider-Man and Iron Man deal with the mob, two men in advanced armor calling themselves Royal Blue and Firebrick trap the crowd with a red webbing. Then, Royal Blue fires an energy blast at Doppelganger as he tries to get the backdoor of the armored truck open, but the woman jumps in front of the blast, blowing off her arm and ripping Doppelganger in half.

Iron Man goes to the woman's side and Spider-Man watches Doppelganger die. The mob is also freed from their mind control. Iron Man asks Royal Blue what was in the armored truck.

That night, the armored truck is revealed to be carrying Shriek. She is taken to an unknown location and brought to a room with a giant glass bubble containing the Carnage symbiote and is expected to feed it with her powers.
