Synopsis for "Battle Lines: Part 2"Edit
Anya sits on the rooftop of her apartment building at Brooklyn, when her father comes with a birthday cake to celebrate Anya's birthday a few days early. Suddenly, Ms. Marvel, Wonder Man and a group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents arrive at the apartment and take the Corazon family under custody.
Gilberto is placed in a holding room at Stark Tower, until Carol comes in, assuring him that his daughter is not under detention. In fact, Wonder Man is giving her the grand tour and allowing her to use their training facilities. Carol and Simon inform Anya and Gilberto the SHRA has no age limit and Anya has to register, otherwise she faces jail time. Gilberto wants Anya to stop being Araña so she can have a normal life, but Anya refuses and argues she became Araña to help people and make a difference. For that, she agrees to register, but Carol says that, as an underage, Anya will be allowed to keep living with her father.
Meanwhile, Arachne and the Shroud continue their escape from S.H.I.E.L.D., being forced to steal clothes and a car. Upon hitting the road, the couple decide to flee to Canada, but not before Julia takes her daughter with them. Although Max is concerned that Julia's daughter will be under S.H.I.E.L.D. protection, he nonetheless agrees to save her.
Back at Stark Tower, Iron Man debriefs Carol and Simon that Arachne has gone rogue and is helping the Shroud in evading S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and now they must detain her. Anya wants to come along, but Carol accepts, but only if Anya does not get involved in the action.
Ms. Marvel and her team intercept Arachne and the Shroud's car. Arachne attempts to ram Ms. Marvel into a roadblock, but Ms. Marvel flips the car over. The Shroud is detained, but Arachne is nowhere to be seen.
