Ten years ago, the Fantastic Four are in the clutches of the Mole Man. But Johnny Storm saves the day by blinding him, allowing the four to gain the upper hand. The next day, Johnny sends in the story to the Daily Bugle, expecting to see his face on the front page but find nothing but Spider-Man.

Meanwhile, Peter Parker is getting chewed out by Jameson for not bringing him the pictures that he wants (i.e. more of Spider-Man doing stuff that he can spin negatively). Frustrated, Pete goes home to find Johnny Storm. Storm asks him to be his personal action photographer. On his first assignment, Torch rejects all of Peter's pictures because they have Spider-Man in them. The next day, he places a tracker on Johnny and follows him from a distance. But when he finds an appropriate location, he also finds Paste Pot Pete. After mocking Pete for a while, Spidey tracks the Torch to the Latvian embassy where Dr. Doom has frozen him solid. Spider-Man tricks Doom into believing he's joining him but just flees with the frozen Johnny.

While removing enough ice to free Johnny, Spider-Man accidentally chisels off his hair. When he goes to the Daily Bugle to turn in his pictures, hoping to wreck Storm, Jonah just winds up printing a picture making it look like Spider-Man is in cahoots with Doom! Oops.
