Synopsis for "Night of the Griffin"Edit

While web-slinging through the city in the rain, Spider-Man suddenly sees a man falling out of the sky. In saving him, the two are plunged into the harbor where they are pulled out by the Beast. They learn that the man who they rescued is a scientist was responsible for turning John Horton into the Griffin, a mutate which Beast battled before. Explaining how the Griffin broke out of prison to get revenge on the scientist for turning him into a monster. With his explanation finished, the scientist dies in Spider-Man's arms. The Beast and Spider-Man then decide to work together to bring the Griffin into custody.

They are soon attacked by the Griffin himself, and their battle takes them across the city to the George Washington Bridge where the two heroes work together to defeat the Griffin. With the villain knocked unconscious, but at the cost of holding up traffic on the bridge. When a rich woman complains to the arriving police about how Spider-Man and the Beast made her wait in traffic for 15 minutes, Spider-Man webs her feet to the pavement before leaving.
