After the web-slinger escapes from Norman Osborn's hunting lodge, he rushes his beloved aunt to the headquarters of the Fantastic Four! The amazing one hopes Reed Richards can confirm that May Parker is indeed May Parker... and not another clone! While Mr. Fantastic runs the necessary tests, the wall-crawler charges into Osborn Industries and attacks the goblin! But thanks to the Gathering, Norman Osborn is teeming with god-like power!
