Return Of Doctor Octopus

Synopsis:
Recently ressurected Dr. Octopus goes on a rampage in an attempt yet again to destroy Spider-Man while the Rose and Dr. Trainer try to comprehend what went wrong with the resurrection, what happened to Delilah, and how is the process going to affect Stunner.

Mary Jane receives an invitation to a toga party but doubts Peter will be available as Spidey continues to battle Dr. Octopus after rescuing an ungrateful child. The Rose tracks down Delilah and they make their escape.

At the Daily Bugle, Robbie informs Jameson of the fight between Dr. Octopus and Spider-Man. Jameson shows little interest, instead his concern is focused on the fact that Norman Osborn now owns half of the Daily Bugle.

Dr. Trainer joins the fight against Spider-Man but is of little help as Dr. Octopus decides to make an escape by ripping a roof off of a building and throwing it into a crowd to distract Spider-man. After saving more innocents, Spidey heads home where he is coerced into going to the toga party with his wife.

At the Plaza Hotel, Madam Qwa has an audience with the mysterious Black Tarantula and reports the demise of her brother- Master Zei. Chesbro is then sent on a task to be the eyes and ears of Black Tarantula.

Dr. Octopus returns to Dr. Trainer's lab only to find Stunner barely alive. Saddened, he vows vengeance on Spider-Man while Black Tarantula pays a visit to the Rose's apartment and puts Delilah through the wall a few times leaving a message for the Rose.

Peter and Mary Jane end up having a good time at the toga party. They are being spied on by Chesbro.
