Spider-Man notices a security camera
recording him changing back into Peter Parker and webs it up, however he
is too late as Spencer Smythe (who had taken control of the camera) had
already taken a picture of Spider-Man’s real face. Deciding to err on
the side of caution, Spider-Man pays a visit to Curt Connors and uses
his lab to create a synthetic mask based on his own face to try and
reverse any potential compromise the camera has caused his secret
As news about the theft of the control device to the police’s
security cameras gets out to the Bugle, Smythe invites various
underworld types to try to get them to buy his services. He reveals to
them that thanks to his brilliance he has learned the secret identity of
Spider-Man. However, when he trains the camera on Spider-Man again, the
wall-crawler is ready with his synthetic Parker mask, and takes it off
in front of the camera, which discredits Smythe. However, Smythe offers
to make it up by attacking Spider-Man in his new Spider-Slayer model,
which is piloted by himself.
Meanwhile, Spider-Man spots another protest happening in front of
the police station, the people there are protesting the privacy
invasion caused by the polices cameras. Surprisingly enough, J. Jonah
Jameson is in the crowd lending his support. Spider-Man pops in and
tells them that he agrees with them before slinging off and returning to
his civilian identity.
He briefly checks in on Harry when Mary Jane and other revelers
come with pizza. When Mary Jane asks Peter he’s in he tells her that
he’s got a date with Gwen. When Peter meets up with Gwen, he learns that
they aren’t going out on a date so much as checking in on Flash
Thompson, who Gwen is worried about since he’s come back from Vietnam.
When Flash Thompson loses his temper over their concern, the couple
decides to leave him be and go out for a romantic evening together.
After his date with Gwen is over, Peter changes into Spider-Man,
when he detects that he’s being monitored by the security cameras, he
soon finds out who’s been watching when he’s attacked by Smythe in his
new Spider-Slayer robot.
