AUTHOR'S NOTE: Yep, I'm continuing this fic, which means everyone will get to find out what happened after Peter Parker returned to life. Hurray!

"Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson! Put your hands in the air!" S.H.I.E.L.D. troopers ordered.

Peter put his hands in the air... and web-shot himself onto a nearby flagpole, bringing MJ with him. "Toodle-oo!"

"STOP THEM!" The agents fired toward them, but to no avail. The bullets didn't make contact at all.

Peter and MJ swung away into the night. One of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents attempted to follow them, but was stopped by a fellow officer.

"Let it go. We should worry more about the clone that bleeding over by the statue." He pointed to the Scarlet Spider.

"So... can you fill me in on what's happened for the past few months after my... well, death?" Peter asked MJ while shooting another web toward a building.

"Well... as you can definitely guess, there was a long period of mourning, during which Gwen Stacy thought of an insanely ridiculous plan to use Reed RIchard's Cosmic Cube to bring you back to life."

"How'd that work out?"

"Well, you're alive, but pretty much every teen hero involved with the plot is on the run from S.H.I.E.L.D."

"Okay... which teen superheroes might we be talking about?"

MJ thought for a second. "Um... Bobby, Johnny, Spider-Woman, Kitty, Sue Storm, and a new clone of yours."

"I have another clone?! I thought we took care of the clone situation!"

"Well, S.H.I.E.L.D. made another one."

"Where is he now?"

"Um... he was kind of the guy you just saw get shot."

Peter was silent for a moment. "...Oh."

"I almost forgot. Gwen took on a hero name: Mockingbird."

"She named herself after a bird?"


Peter chuckled. "Heh. So, let me see if I have everything straight. All of you guys made a team, stole the Cube from S.H.I.E.L.D., brought me back, and now-"

"Yes, we're fugitives."

"Actually, I was gonna say now Gwen's named after a bird."


"Miguel better have gotten the Cube to MJ." Mockingbird narrowly evaded an arrow from Hawkeye.

"Stay still, kid! You'll take one to the arm or head if you don't stay still and stand down!"

"Make me, Barton!" Mockingbird took out a collapsible staff and pole vaulted over the archer to the doorway.

Gwen then took out her cell phone and called Jessica. "Spider-Woman, we have trouble!"

"What happened?" The clone answered on the other line.

"Hawkeye found me, and he's probably alerted the other Ultimates!" Gwen ran around a corner...

...only to find Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, and Nick Fury.

"We. Are. Dead." Gwen jawdropped as Iron Man raised his repulsor rays and prepared to fire.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Cliffhanger much?
