A sniper’s aim barely misses Peter Parker, but kills young Eric Hoffman, a close friend of the X-Man Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler investigates the scene, finding Spider-Man, a “known” criminal, and they fight. Meanwhile, J. Jonah Jameson finds more evidence linking Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and the costumed vigilante known only as The Punisher isn’t happy with whoever has been impersonating him and committing murders – and The Punisher believes that Spider-Man and Nightcrawler are responsible!
