The Initiative

On the way back from the battle with Hydra, Komodo falls asleep on the plane and reverts to human form which Hardball sees.

On the base, Trauma's tutor is revealed to be the depowered Dani Moonstar.

The rest of the cadets continue to train with Gauntlet as well as others (Hellcat teaches First Aid, Black Widow teaches using guns, Stingray teaches water rescue etc).

They even allow the Thing in to spar whilst Yellowjacket and Curt Connors watch, it is mentioned that Komodo got her powers from a formula stolen from him that she perfected.

They decide to send Komodo into the field.

Yellowjacket and War Machine tell her that she is to depower Spider-Man and that War Machine will assist.

In New York Spider-Man is battling Boomerang, Hydro-Man and Shocker unaware he is being observed by a concealed member of the initiative.

komodo and War Machine attack Spider-Man and the villains make a run for it.

In Stamford, Hardball is contacted by a mysterious man who is trying to blackmail him.

The villains who tried to escape make it to a warehouse where they are apprehended by three people in Spider-Man's Iron Spider armor designed by Tony Stark. They are with the initiative (and later revealed to be called the Scarlet Spiders). They apprehend the villains.

Spider-Man manages to take down War Machine and is trapped by Komodo but he manages to make her panic enough for him to escape, Komodo is petrified of being depowered and he escapes.
