The Freak wakes up in a sewer, have developed and adapted fins, stronger legs, more sensitive senses, and other biological adaptations. Peter has been asked for unflattering photos of Harry's potential father-in-law and mayoral candidate, while also being asked for flattering photos of Crowne, a less desirable candidate who happens to own the DB! While taking the photos of Crowne, the Freak shows up, having tracked Spider-Man's scent. With jammed webshooters, Spider-Man may not be able to act in time to save Crowne from Freak's attack.
