Web-slinging through the city, Spider-Man’s attention is drawn to a
strange scene where a robbery where a museum was robbed, the walls and a
display case containing rare meteor fragments had been melted. When
Spider-Man is spotted by the police, they fire at him, and he is forced
Spider-Man changes back into Peter Parker and is confronted by
Liz Allan, who is dead on her feet. As a strange man kicks out the
cleaning lady from his hotel (prompting her to call the Bugle to tip
them of his strange behavior) Peter brings the exhausted Liz to Mary
Jane’s apartment. Peter explains that Liz is an old friend from high
school who he hasn’t seen since graduation, and asks MJ to watch over
her for the night, Mary Jane agrees to help out.
Meanwhile, at the Bugle, Ned Leeds decides to check out the lead
that he got from the hotel maid. Arriving at the hotel, Leeds witnesses a
large explosion from inside. When he goes in, he is attacked by the
strange man, who seemingly caused the explosion on his own. When Peter
arrives at the Bugle, he is told of Ned’s assignment and is asked to go
there to take any pictures. When Peter arrives there as Spider-Man, he
sees the explosion and goes in to check to see if Ned is safe.
He finds Ned alive, but unconscious, and is soon attacked by his
old foe the Molten Man. Spider-Man soon learns that the Molten Man’s
powers have now gotten stronger than ever before, thanks to the rocks
that he had stolen. The fight ends when Spider-Man knocks the Molten Man
outside of the building. He lands on a fire-hydrant, the resulting
torrent of water steams against the Molten Man, giving him cover to
escape. Spider-Man then grabs Ned and brings him to the nearest
hospital, changing back to Peter Parker before admitting him.
When the doctors take a look at him, they inform Peter that Ned
has been exposed to a harmful dose of radiation. Realizing that the
rocks that the Molten Man must be radioactive, Peter tries to leave the
hospital to stop the villain before he can irradiate anyone else, but
succumbs to radiation sickness as well and passes out.
