Synopsis for "Stalkers In the Shadows"Edit

At Dannemora State Prison, the guards mock Boomerangs vow to break out of prison as they are returning the prisoner to his cell after supper. Boomerang has, however, palmed a spoon which he uses as a makeshift boomerang to disable to the locks to his and the Punisher's cells.

As the guards come and investigate the alarm, the Punisher waits with his cell door closed and when they are preoccupied with Boomerange get the jump on him. The two steal guard uniforms off the unconscious men and flee to the top of the outer wall of the prison where they set up a rope of tied clothing to carry them out to safety. With the prison guards catching up with them, the Punisher, betrays Boomerange knocking him down into the guards and escapes by himself vowing to kill the Kingpin.

While in New York City, Peter Parker is walking out of his apartment when he spots his landlady Mrs. Muggins getting attacked by some druggies looking to score some easy money. Peter jumps in and helps frighten them off, when he realizes they were trying to stick her up for drug money, Peter begins to contemplate the cities drug problems and wishes there was more he could do.

As he walks off to the bus he is unaware that Cloak and Dagger have watched the scene. Going after the drug addicts, the vigilantes attack them and use their powers to clean their systems of their drug addictions before vanishing as quickly as they came. However, before they can enjoy their new lives clean from drugs, the Punisher jumps down and murders them all for having taken drugs in the first place.

Peter arrives at the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital where he tests out the police security protecting the Black Cat as she recovers from her injuries. Finding them satisfactory, he changes into Spider-Man and greets Captain DeWolff and is granted permission to visit Felicia. Finding her still asleep, he kisses her and then contemplates what future they have together before leaving the hospital out the window.

As Spider-Man swings through the city, he thinks over his recent encounter with an unknown robot attacker[1], and his considerations about quitting school. His thoughts are cut off when his spider-sense goes off leading him to a condemned building.

There he finds a bunch of dead junkies. When he's approached by Cloak and Dagger, Spider-Man assumes that they had murdered the junkies and attack them. Forced to pull Spider-Man into the darkness within his cape, Cloak uses his powers to stop Spider-Man. Ejecting him out of the dark void within him, Cloak and Dagger then show Spider-Man the truth: The junkies were shot down with a hale of mercy bullets and that the man who did it came to find out who sold them the drugs before leaving.

Elsewhere in the city, the Punisher is out to kill the man responsible for the drug proliferation in the city: The Kingpin.
