Synopsis for "Old Habits"Edit

Peter Parker continues to spiral after the "death" of the life model decoys he thought were his parents, and is exhausted as he responds to a hostage situation at Ryker's Island: the Hobgoblin has escaped his cell and is threatening to kill the inmates in his quest to rid the world of evil.

Meanwhile, former mercenary Jason Philip Macendale has been hiking the Ural Mountains of Russia for at least a week in search of the Kravinoff Household. He fights a pack for wolves and prevails, and, just before arriving at the family home of the late Kraven the Hunter, buries part of his pack in the sno. Once he gets past the guard, he tells the son of Kraven that he has the Hunter's journal, offering it in exchange for an infusion of the strength serum Kraven used.

Cutting back to the prison, inmate Alfredo Morelli, who was put away thanks to Spider-Man while impersonating Richard Fisk, sucker punches Spidey, allowing the Demogoblin to throw pumpkin bombs and disorient the hero. When he comes to, Demogoblin has Morelli by the neck, and debates Spider-Man on the morality of killing his enemies so they won't return later. Spider-Man refuses to give in, knowing heroes can't kill, and saves Morelli's life. Demogoblin escapes, however.

In the Kravinoff estate, Macendale is primed for his injections, though he can tell he will be double crossed by the young Kravinoff. As the pain becomes unbearable and he thinks he is dying, the buried pack rises, and we see the Hobgoblin's glider, presumably set to kill.
