Spider-man continues to console Sparrow as they make their way out of the tunnels where the police have set up a perimeter around the area. "Hey heroes." Watanabe says as she stands next to an armored van motioning them over. When they reach her she opens the back of the van and the three head inside as she closes the door. Inside sits a very much alive Fahnbullah Eddy. Sparrow runs over and hugs her.
Spider-man stands confused. "Um? Did I miss something?"
"Sorry Spidey. This was the plan. Well it was kind of the spur of the moment plan. When I was on my way in I ran into Fahnbullah. I called captain Watanabe back and told her the new plan. So we orchestrated a plan where the monster would disappear and we could catch Mr. Eddy in the act."
"But where does that leave Fahnbullah?" Spider-man asks.
"Well I think we can let this slide as long as it doesn't leave outside our little group. And my boys can keep their lips shut." Watanabe says with a smile.
"Thank you so much I want cause any more trouble. I promise." Fahnbullah says.
"Alright. Now all we need to do is get you out of here. Just sit tight." Watanabe exits the van and closes the door behind her. "I'm headed back to the precinct. Take my squad car back, alright?" she starts up the van and heads off.
At the airport, Jubilee is seeing the Parkers off. "So long Ms. Parker it was great seeing you again."
"You too dear, and take care." Aunt May says as the two hug. She heads off to check the flight time.
"It's been really great seeing you again Jubes."
"You too Pete, actually you've really inspired me. I'm heading back home."
"No, there's a boarding school I was staying at in Boston, and they said there was always a place for me there. You should drop by and check it out. With your powers you'd make a great instructor. After all, we mutants have to stick together." She hands him a card and kisses him before he and Aunt May head off to their flight.
Peter sits on the plane as it taxis and looks at the pictures he and Jubilee took while they were there. He then looks curiously at the card, which says: The Xavier Institute of Higher Learning.
Back in Manhattan, Black cat breaks into a high-rise apartment stealthily pulling a picture off the wall, revealing a safe. She easily cracks the safe and opens it, pulling out some expensive jewelry and gold bars. She then hears a sound come from behind her and quickly turns to see two men in flight suits, one in blue and red, the other in red and white, both wearing jet packs and helmets.
"I taught I tau a putty tat." A voice comes from the other side of her as another, in black and purple fires a wrist blaster at her, she nimbly evades the shot, but the newcomer uses his pack and flies toward her, taking her newly acquired bag of loot. She turns as he lands down and slashes at him with her claws, before they can make contact however, he teleports alongside his partners and takes off out of the window with the two.
"Better luck next time kitten." The red and white one says as they disappear over the skyline, leaving a very angry Black Cat behind.
The group land on a building and begin to celebrate their victory. They are taken by surprise as they hear clapping above them and look up. "Bravo gentleman, bravo. Hey if you're not busy with your petty smash and grabs, you wanna make some real money?"
Meanwhile, at Ravencroft a situation has arisen as patient, Cletus Cassidy has taken Dr. Kafka hostage with a piece of sharpened plastic as several orderlies attempt to calm him. "I need my medicine. I NEED my medicine!" he shouts as he puts the weapon closer to her throat.
"Cletus calm down." Fellow patient Eddie Brock says as he calmly approaches him.
"Get back Brock!" the orderly tells him as he continues to approach the unstable patient.
"Brock stay back!" Cassidy yells as he backs up toward a window.
"It's okay Kletus. No one's going to hurt you. Let's talk."
"No, no talking. I NEED my medicine."
"Listen I know what you're going through. You think you need something so bad that you're willing to do whatever it takes to get it. But it only makes you weaker. You become a slave to it. Come on they just want to help."
"I…I gets so tired without it I…" Kletus releases the doctor and drops the weapon putting his hands up to surrender as the orderlies return him to his room.
"Thank you Eddie." Kafka says. "You've really come a long way since our sessions began.
"I owe it all to you Ashley."
"I wasn't supposed to do this for two weeks but I think you've made progress enough. I've decided to release you tomorrow." Eddie's eyes light up as he hears the news.
