Betty calls Peter in the middle of the night, terrified. MJ is away. Spidey goes to investigate. Spidey stumbles quickly on mystic column of fire shooting up from warehouse and enters to meet aforementioned terrified Betty. Trapster glues Spidey to floor (did you think about taking off your boots to escape, Spidey?) Wizard arrives. Tosses Spidey and Betty into dimension vortex. Spidey knocked unconscious (again - good thing he has a Brain Healing Factor, or he'd be a drooling wreck by now) and woken by evil Dark Knight and henchmen, rescued by Green forest folk, leads attack on evil Dark Castle and finds Betty. Meets Knight. Betty says it's all an illusion, Knight removes helmet to reveal... Ranger (attempted to assasinate Ward, from previous issue, remember?). Wizard appears, and all is revealed to be holographic projection/virtual reality projector. Wizard reveals plan to tap power of Negative Zone, destroying New York in process. Zero Tolerance? More like Negative Tolerance. Heroes struggle free of restraints, Wizard's control device destroyed, Wizard thrown into negative zone. Plan halted in traditional hero fashion.
Characters: Spider-Man, Peter Parker, Betty Brant, The Trapster, The Wizard, The Green Folk, Glara, Senator Ward, Alonzo, The Ranger
