Synopsis:
The Storms live in a split level home in Glenville, Long Island. After a workout, Johnny reads the paper and gets furious that it spends so much time on Spider Man. He wants that attention.

Over at the Museum of Art, the Fox is scoping out the museum for his upcoming heist. That night he cuts power to the museum forcing the alarm system down then poses as an electrician called in to fix the problem. He then makes out with a Da Vinci painting and leaves a clue behind that leads police into thinking Spider Man is involved.

Spider Man goes to the Torch’s home to ask him for help in clearing his name. Torch, having heard of the “heist” attacks him. Spider Man ducks into a chemical lab to whip up webbing to contain the Torch so he can reason with him. Spider Man snags him and talks to him but Johnny doesn’t believe him. Spider Man takes off leaving Johnny to think about it. Inspector Rudd tells Johnny of another painting being stolen while he was battling Spider Man and determines Spidey’s innocent. The inspector also identifies the fox as being the likely culprit. Spidey and Torch get together and compare notes on the robberies.

While scouting out places the Fox has been seen, the Fox ambushes Spider Man but the Torch melts his gun. The two of them come upon a trap door in the subway tunnels and investigate. It is one of his lairs but is empty. Spider Man uses his spider sense to home in on him. They find two of his goons in another lair who rat him out. They send him to a third hide out in Central Park. It is empty too but upon leaving, the suspicious activities of a street merchant attracts Spidey’s attention. It is the Fox who Spidey captures with ease.
