Chapter 1: Kingpin
Parker House 7:38 am
"PETER PARKER, WAKE UP! YOU'RE GONNA BE LATE FOR SCHOOL…AGAIN!" yelled May Parker from outside her nephew's room.
Inside Peter's Room
"ALRIGHT I'M UP! Jeez Aunt May" Peter Parker, shouted back while sitting up from the desk and rubbing his eyes.
After his chat with Daredevil, his mentor of sorts, yesterday night, Peter realized that he was about to officially step into a whole new world where danger was around every corner and if he was gonna fight crime and defend the city, he needed something better than his wrestling gear that he's been wearing for the past year. So for most of the night and into the early morning Peter had been putting the final touches on his side project, which was a new costume, one that would suit him much better in the crime fighting business.
'I can hardly believe it. It's been one year since I've started this mission of mine, damn that passed by quick' he thought while he was putting on his school clothes.
Once he was dressed Peter put the new costume he was working on under his bed and quickly left his room, heading downstairs where he could smell the intoxicating scent of breakfast.
"Good Morning Aunt May." He greeted happily, kissing her on the cheek, then going towards his plate of food.
"Morning Dear, hurry and eat or you'll miss the bus again. Peter, you're a sophomore in high school now, a new year means new responsibilities and the first responsibility you need to learn is to wake up on time. I swear lately you've been sleeping late, and you seem so exhausted. What are you doing to make yourself so tired?" she asked with concern evident in her voice.
Peter heard the question, and he racked his brain trying to find an answer and when he couldn't think of one on the spot he quickly stuffed half his breakfast into his mouth before backing up towards the front door.
"Ummm…..sory…c'n't t..alk Aun May gonna be l-ate" He said through a mouth full of food, spilling a few crumbs onto the carpet, "See….you..ater Aun May" he said leaving his house, closing the door gently behind himself.
May sat there looking at the door and she shook her head before releasing a sigh.
"Have a good day."
'Man, that was a close one, I really hate lying to Aunt May, or at least not answering her questions, when she's only being concerned, but I mean honestly. How was I supposed to answer that question? Oh yeah well, lately I've kinda been up all night learning how to fight crime from a guy who calls himself Daredevil... Yeah, I can see that going over so well' Peter thought to himself while he was waiting at the bus stop.
The young teen didn't have to wait long because from the left he heard the bus's horn. He looked up in time to see the bus pass him by and the bus driver give him the finger.
"AH! YOU BASTARD!" he yelled watching the bus speed down the street, he then grumbled to himself in frustration and then looked to the sky "Oh yeah, I see how this day is gonna go….joy" he said before lowering his head and starting the long the walk to Midtown High School.
RING! Came late bell as Peter finally arrived.
He burst through the doors and he ran through the halls, heading straight for his first period class.
Once he reached the door he took a moment to catch his breath and then he slowly opened the door, only to be greeted by everyone turning their eyes to him.
"Uh, Hi." Peter said.
"Ah, Mr. Parker late again I see. I know you have one of the highest averages in the school but do try to be on time I rather hate interruptions. Now please take your seat please."
"Yes, Dr. McCoy." He said while going to the back of the class and sitting in his seat, which was luckily next to his girlfriend Gwen Stacy.
"Was it that fat bus driver again?" she whispered to him.
"Yeah. He didn't even stop this time." Peter whispered back
"That Fat Bastard" she said balling up her fist.
"Heh. That's what I said" Peter chuckled while taking out his book.
"Mr. Parker and Ms. Stacy please see me after class" said Dr. McCoy from in front of the class.
"Yes sir" they both replied glancing at each other
'Yep it's gonna be one of those days' thought Peter leaning back in his chair, readying himself for the lecture.
Later: After Class
"You um...you wanted to see us Dr. McCoy" Gwen said carefully as she and Peter went to his desk while the other students left the classroom.
"Yes I did for two reasons. The first reason, please keep the whispering for after class and not during because as I stated earlier I rather dislike interruptions."
"We can do that and the second" Peter replied.
"If you recall last year I administered a test in this class to identify you scientific standings….correct"
"Yeah we remember" the two teens replied at the same time.
"Well that was a little white lie on my part, that test was actually an IQ test."
"An IQ test?" Gwen questioned.
"Yes and the test was given across the country, which was why it took a year for the results to come in and I have some good news, the two of you scored the highest across the bored. I mean no one has seen scores like these for a while." said Dr. McCoy with a smile.
"Cool." said Gwen
"What were our scores?" Peter asked.
"Ms. Stacy you scored a 197 on the test you tied with Susan Storm the only other female from New York to score that high and you Mr. Parker scored a 199, you tied with Tony Stark, and Victor Von Doom, which is astounding because the only person in history to ever score above that was Reed Richards" said Dr. McCoy.
"Look at that I have a genius for a boyfriend" said Gwen
"And I have a genius for a girlfriend"
"You both should be proud of yourselves. To achieve these scores at your age is most impressive"
"Which means that because of our scores and our ages we've raised a few…..eyebrows so to speak" Peter surmised.
"Excellent deductive skills Mr. Parker, yes the two of you have raised several eyebrows in the scientific community and they want to meet with the both of you. The school has already signed off on it and I will be your escort seeing as how I have a bit of history with the government and this program" said Dr. McCoy.
"Wait, hold on government program, the school signed us over to the government" exclaimed Gwen.
"No. No nothing like that Ms. Stacy perhaps I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, The US government, several years ago started a program for intellectually gifted people that's based here in New York, and the people at the program want to meet you, I've been there so they want me to be something like a guide for the both of you. Actually this is great because I get to meet some old friends of mine that I haven't seen in quite some time."
"Where is this place at Dr. McCoy? And when are we supposed to be meeting with them."
"At the Baxter Building Mr. Parker, in about two months from now, we will be going there, but I will need your legal guardian to sign this permission slip saying its okay for you to go" He said handing Gwen and Peter a slip of paper.
Peter and Gwen eagerly took the permission slips and then left the classroom, with smiles on their faces, both heading for their next class.
After School: Coffee Bean
"OH MY GOD!" Gwen shouted, "Peter, the Baxter Building. Do you know what kind of science stuff goes on is in that building that I'm just dying to get my hands on!" she exclaimed in excitement.
"I know I've heard the rumors about the experiments that they do and I can't wait to see it" He replied in excitement as well, while staring at her.
"I once read in an article that they were experimenting with Inter-dimentional exploration, I mean just the thought of all the…What? Why are you looking at me like that?" asked Gwen
"Because I just realized that I'm dating a genius with the IQ of 197 and she's gorgeous." Peter answered.
"Why Mr. Parker I think you're looking for some kind of reward" she said scooting closer to him.
"Maybe I am" said Peter leaning in to kiss Gwen but before their lips could meet they were interrupted by the other half of their little group showing up.
"Why Ms. Watson, I do think we are spoiling a tender moment here." Came the voice of Harry Osborn as he sat down across from Peter and Gwen.
"Indeed we are Mr. Osborn." Mary Jane Watson said while sitting down next to Harry.
"By all means keep interrupting" said Peter sarcastically, shaking his head at the two of them.
"Who's says they're interrupting" said Gwen kissing Peter, not caring who was looking.
"Ah! AHH! Okay…okay you guys get a room" Harry joked, turning away.
"Well you two seem to be in high spirits today" said Mary Jane.
"As we should be you guys remember that test the school gave to all the advanced science classes, well guess what the test was an IQ test and according to the test both of us are geniuses to the highest degree" said Gwen
"Up there with Reed Richards" Peter chimed in
"Get out" said Mary Jane
"Really, THE…Reed Richards!" Harry exclaimed.
"YEAH REED RICHARDS!" Gwen repeated.
"Who the heck is Reed Richards" Harry asked while looking at MJ who was sipping on his coffee that he had bought.
"I don't know, but he sounds important" Mary Jane chuckled.
Peter and Gwen's face fell at their comments.
"He's possibly the smartest Man on Earth" Peter said in a flabbergasted tone, completely shocked that they didn't know about Reed Richards.
"Fascinating. NOT!" Harry and Mary Jane said at the same time before bursting out into a laugh.
"These are our friends." said Gwen as she and Peter shared a laugh.
Later: Parker House 5:30pm
"Aunt May I'm Home!" yelled Peter coming into the modest home.
He went into the kitchen getting ready to look for something to eat when he spotted a note his Aunt had left for him:
Peter working late dinner is in the oven be home later; Love Aunt May
Peter set the note down and he put a smile on his face as he rushed up the stairs and into his room.
He dropped his books on the floor of messy room and then reached under his bed and he grabbed the costume he had been designing the night before. He looked at it for a brief second and then went over to the sowing machine that MJ had bought for him.
'This is perfect. Since Aunt May gone I'll l be able to finish my outfit and sneak out without any questions.' He thought to himself as he started up the sowing machine.
5 hours Later- 10:30pm
Peter stopped the machine and he scooted away from his desk. He held up the completed costume, along with the newly sown gloves, boots and mask and he nodded his head.
'It's time' he thought.
Peter left his room, turning to the left he went towards the door that led to the steps up to the attic.
Peter opened the door that led into the attic and he closed it and locked it behind himself. He took off the clothes he was wearing and started to dress himself in his costume, first the pants, then the boots, next was his utility belt, then the top, followed by his web shooters, which he doubled checked to make sure that he had made enough cartridges to last him. When he was satisfied he put on the gloves, leaving only one thing left to complete his look.
Picking up the mask he looked at it for a second and then he put it on his head. He turned towards the standing mirror that was in the corner of the room and he smiled.
'Yes…..this is the look I wanted' he thought.
The costume was composed of a thin material that did not hinder his ability to cling to walls. The pants were of a navy blue color and the top was red and blue with a black spider web pattern going all over. There was a black spider emblem in the center of his chest and a red spider emblem on his back. The mask also had the black spider web patterns going over it, but it also had a big white reflective eyes so that no one could see in but he could see out as clear as day.
'Cool.' He thought.
Turning out the lights in the attic Peter opened the window and looked both ways hoping that no one was looking. He didn't sense anything with his spider sense so he climbed out and too the roof.
Once on the roof he jumped to the next house and kept jumping until he reached the end of the block, where he shot a web line and began to swing towards the city.
'I am no longer just Peter Parker; the life of being ordinary no longer applies. All of my training with Daredevil has led me to this point..….Uncle Ben I swore on your grave that I will always use my power for good and that's exactly what I'm going to do as The AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and KINGPIN I'm coming for you!' Spider-Man thought with determination as he swung toward the city and to the meeting point with Daredevil.
Meeting Point- 20 Minutes Later
"Daredevil enough of this waiting the Kingpin is waiting for me." came the irritated voice of a man, that stood at about 6'2, dressed in all white, with a white hood that cloaked his face and a moon emblem in the center of his chest.
"Moon Knight relax we are waiting on our last member" Daredevil replied calmly.
"You know Daredevil you haven't told us much about this mystery apprentice of yours. I'm curious" said a man in a thick Chinese accent.
He was about 5'9 dressed in a dark blue and black sleeveless karate gi with a red headband on his head.
"Is he skilled, that's all that I care about. The Kingpin is crafty and unpredictable we need skilled warriors to go against him." said Moon Knight forcefully
"I'll let his skills speak for themselves. Show yourself Spider-Man." The Man without fear stated confidently.
Stepping from out of the shadows Spider-Man revealed himself to the other occupants that were on the roof.
"Well that's interesting. A new costume." said Daredevil using his radar to detect a change in the fabric of the clothing his apprentice of sorts was wearing.
"My old one didn't match my name. What do you think now?" he asked.
"It suits you."
"I think this is some kind of joke! Are you serious Daredevil? We're recruiting kids now to fight murders, rapist and thieves" Moon Knight interjected.
"Moon Knight I vouch for him, we're wasting time arguing" Daredevil said, raising his voice slightly.
"Excuse me Spider-Man, it is nice to meet you, I am Shang-Chi. I am curious to know how did you sneak up on us?"
"Easy, the three of you were arguing so loud you just didn't notice my presence." he said hopping up and sticking to the wall behind him "So DD I'm here mind explaining everything to me now."
"First things first Spider-Man, you met Shang-Chi. He's a master of Kung Fu, and a close friend. Behind him is Moon Knight another Master Martial artist, and we are all gathered here because we each have a vendetta against the Kingpin and tonight he going down for good. Now Spider-Man the reason why I specifically chose a year to attack is because that's how long it took for Moon Knight to infiltrate into the Kingpin's organization."
"And it wasn't easy" replied Moon Knight with his arms crossed across his muscular frame.
"Noted, but it took him a year to work his way up to the Kingpin's upper level, and collect enough evidence on Fisk to put him away forever. Tonight we take him and his whole operation down "Daredevil continued.
"How?" Spider-Man asked.
"The Kingpin is expecting a large shipment of Drugs along with a secret guest that's a known international criminal. He didn't say much but I do know that he is going to be there personally." Moon Knight answered.
"This is something Fisk never does. If we can get proof, connecting him, the drugs, and this known international criminal, we can put him away." Daredevil stated.
"So what are we waiting for then? Let's get to it." Said Spidey.
Daredevil smirked a little, before turning to the warrior that was clad in all white.
"Moon Knight, give us the layout."
"Alright listen up…." He started but as soon as he opened his mouth, Spider-Man's spider sense started to buzz slightly.
The wall-crawler shook his head a little and narrowed his eyes at Moon Knight.
'Why is my spider sense going off? It feels like danger? No, not danger but something else and it's directed at .this Moon knight guy' he thought, 'There is again and it's only getting stronger, why?'
"SPIDER-MAN!" Daredevil yelled "Are you listening it's time to move, get your head in the game or get out…..now let's go" said Daredevil running and jumping off the top of the roof, he was quickly followed by Shang-Chi, Moon Knight however right before he jumped Spider-Man landed in front of him blocking his path.
"What is it boy." Moon Knight growled out, in obvious annoyance.
"When you were working for Fisk did you hurt innocent people?" he asked.
"Don't be ridiculous. Now get out of the way."
Spider-Man felt his spider sense buzz again.
Moon Knight took a step forward towards the edge when Spidey grabbed him by the arm, but his spider-sense got a little stronger as Moon Knight yanked his arm out of his grasp and leaned towards him.
"Kid, don't EVER F****** TOUCH ME AGAIN!"
The white clad warrior jumped over the edge, his cape billowing in the wind behind him.
Spider-Man hesitated for a moment as he thought the exchange over his mind.
"Well, he didn't exactly say no' he thought suspiciously, 'Something isn't right, but I can't back out now. My only choice is to see what happens next. I have a feeling that it's gonna be a long night.'
Spider-Man jumped over the edge and fired a web line in the direction of his companions.
Across the Way- The Docks
The four vigilantes landed on the roof of the building across from the warehouse and docking bay, where the four of them had a partial view of where the boat with the drugs were supposed to be coming in.
"Alright we're here, remember to wait for Moon Knight's signal and then we divide and conquer" Daredevil instructed, "Moon Knight go ahead." he continued.
Moon Knight jumped over the edge and made his way over to the warehouse.
"How well do you know this Moon Knight guy?" asked Spider-Man once he was out of ear shot.
Daredevil 'looked' at him.
"Well enough to know he hates Fisk with a passion, Fisk had his brother murdered…why" replied Daredevil
"I don't trust him" Spider-Man stated.
Inside the Warehouse
"You're Late ya Moon Bastard" came the voice of Bullseye who was sitting on a stack of crates twirling a knife.
"I'm here ain't I" replied Moon Knight while walking up to Bullseye, "They're outside waiting, Daredevil and the Kung Fu guy."
"Perfect. .Let's get this show on the road" said Bullseye pulling out a radio "Hey you idiots start bringing em in."
"Gotcha" came a gruff reply over the radio.
"Alright, I held up my end now where's the money the Kingpin promised" said Moon Knight
"Don't worry you'll get your reward, but first it's time to give the devil his due" Bullseye stated with a sadistic smile.
"But you just met him Spider-Man" said Shang-Chi
"I know but, he seems a bit off" Spider-Man replied cryptically
"Look I know he's a bit rough around the edges but….wait, over there, the water" said Daredevil.
Across the way, in the water a boat started to become visible, and it wasn't a very big boat, but it was a decent carrier size, perfect for smuggling things in and out of places undetected.
The boat pulled up at the dock and stopped. From within the boat five men, armed with automatic weapons climbed out and stood by the vehicle.
Moon Knight then walked out of the warehouse and onto the boat. After a few minutes he exited the boat, but in his hands were two crescent shaped daggers he tossed both of them in the air and caught them, before he went back into the warehouse.
"There's the signal…the drugs are on the boat and Fisk is in the Warehouse…..alright here's how we do this, Spider-Man secure the drugs and take out the muscle while me and Shang-Chi handle Fisk and his bodyguards" said Daredevil
"Alright, good luck" the wall-crawler replied stepping towards the edge, but right before he jumped off he heard Shang-Chi say something
"Yes…we shall all need luck"
Spidey glanced over his shoulder at him, and it was then that his spider sense was buzzing but this time it was surrounding Shang Chi.
'The hell is going on' he thought to himself turning around fully, but Daredevil and Shang Chi had already disappeared 'This doesn't feel right maybe I…No…No…. DD can take care of himself stick to the plan and secure the boat' he thought to himself, as he stared out to his destination.
Spidey jumped and he shot a web and swung over to the docks.
Landing on a crane that was hanging over the docks, Spider-man saw the five armed men down below, completely unaware of his presence. He shifted so he was upside down on the crane and then he shot a short web and he slowly lowered himself down and behind one of the men.
Silently, he crept up to the first armed man Spider-man kicked his back leg and then wrapped his arms around the guys throat silently choking him into unconsciousness, just like Daredevil taught him.
He let the guy drop and then fired two web lines and pulled the next two armed men towards him. He jumped in the air spun around and kicked both in the head. The last two turned and attempted to fire their weapons but Spider-man was faster; dashing towards them Spidey grabbed the first guys gun and yanked it out of his hands and then swept the man's legs, while throwing his gun and the other man's head distracting him long enough so he could punch him the stomach then deliver a knee to the man's face, knocking him out cold.
The wall crawling vigilante walked back over to the down man who was searching for a gun and he kicked him in the face him out.
"Piece of cake." He said to himself while turning and looking at the boat.
He started forward but it was then that his spider sense alerted him to an attack; acting on his instincts, Spider-man back-flipped and avoided two crescent shaped daggers that were aimed for the back of his skull.
Spidey landed in a crouch and he turned to see his attacker, and he was shocked to see who it was that attempted to kill him.
'I had a feeling today was gonna be one of those days' he thought while staring at Moon Knight who pulled out two more crescent shaped daggers and got into a fighting stance.
"I'll say this you're good, but I'm better, now I promise since you're a kid I'll make this quick, but for Daredevil…... well that's another story" said Moon Knight in a low threatening tone.
"You do know that the deepest pits in hell are reserved for traitors and mutineers, at least that's what Captain Jack Sparrow says." replied Spider-man readying himself for an intense fight.
"Kid if you have lived the life I've lived you'd know that Hell is here on earth" he said, charging at Spider-Man with the intent to kill.
