Synopsis: Sam Exmore falls out of the news van suspended in the air by Mysterio’s large magnet. Peter Parker quickly and secretly snags the airborn intern with webbing. He aims for the trap’s controls and manages to release their vehicle from the super-villain. Peter and the two young reporters race safely away. The three reach Zane Whelan’s video shoot in time to see a dangerous stunt in which the singer jumps off a building while high on drugs. Toni Harris tries to convince Sam that maybe his idol is phony. Sam scoffs at the notion and follows his hero only to overhear some disturbing news. Zane simply portrays an image of drug-use to appeal to the youth market. Sam leaves in disgust. He jumps into the van, smokes some of his drugs and drives off. Mysterio attacks at that moment preventing Spider-Man from stopping the speeding van.
Notes: Fast Lane is a four part anti-drug story that ran as a insert in most Marvel titles between November 1999 and May 2000.
