A meteor comes crashing down and Norton Fester, a scientist, retrieves it and looks for funding in order to research microscopic life on it. After being turned down by a bank and his friends, he cracks it open himself. As he does, a trapped pocket of gas emits and he stumbles backwards. When he awakens, he discovers new-found strength and lifts a bookcase as if it were a feather. Meanwhile Peter Parker is back on campus trying to regain a normal social life. As he tries to socialize, he gets worried about being pegged as an “egghead” and afraid to repeat his mistake with Betty, brushes them off. Inside a bank, we see Norton Fester is now the Looter. He robs the bank and blinds those inside with a dazzle gun. As he continues to rob banks over the next few days, Looter finds there’s no more gas in his meteor and decides to find another just in case his power diminishes. Coincidentally, Peter Parker is attending a space exhibit and Gwen Stacy happens to show up as well. Gwen becomes frustrated when Peter only notices the exhibits and is completely oblivious to her presence. Looter shows up to steal the meteor and Spider-Man arrives to prevent it. The Looter uses his dazzle gun to blind everyone and escape. Peter returns to try and talk to Gwen but she writes him off as a coward when he ran and changed. Spider-Man figures Looter will be back and is proven correct when another robbery is attempted. Unsuccessful in his second attempt, Looter tries to fly away with a helium balloon, but Spider-Man springs up a flagpole and catches him. After he knocks him out cold, Spider-Man sails the balloon for the police to arrest Looter before knowing why the meteor was sought after.

Synopsis for "A World Gone Mad! Part 1"Edit
Thor has been on Asgard assisting Odin and his fellow warriors against the demons of Jotunheim, a battle they win very easily. After the battle is over, Odin asks Thor to abandon the Earth and return to Asgard full time, a request that Thor declines stating that he has much good still to do on Earth. This infuriates Odin, because the All-Father knows full well that Thor is still trying to find a way to reveal his true identity and win the love of Jane Foster, a plan which Odin harshly forbids.
Returning to Earth and changing back to his mortal guise of Donald Blake, Thor decides that regardless of the consequences, he must reveal his true identity to Jane Foster. Returning to his office, Blake asks Jane into his office and admits to her that he is really the mighty Thor. Meanwhile, in a city museum, scientists are examining the recovered body of the Grey Gargoyle. Once all the river mud is removed from his body the Gargoyle revives and turns his examiners into stone and escapes and is eager to resume his quest of obtaining immortality, something he believes he can achieve through Thor's hammer.
Meanwhile, in Asgard, Loki happens upon Odin's throne room just as Odin learns that Thor has revealed his true identity to Jane Foster. Odin then decides to strip Thor of his godly powers before storming out, leaving Loki to plot a way to get final revenge against his hated step-brother. On Earth meanwhile, Don Blake attempts to prove his claim by tapping his cane and is horrified to find that his powers are gone, leaving Jane to think that Blake has been working too hard. Just then the Grey Gargoyle smashes through the window seeking to learn where Thor is. Donald and Jane manage to flee the building, however the Grey Gargoyle is not far behind them.
