Synopsis:
A story for Now Magazine brings Peter Parker and Ned Leeds to West Berlin where they are investigating a story about Charlemagne, a Cold War operative. When Spider-man encounters Wolverine, he is told that he is in over his head, but he doesn't realize how true that is until he finds his friend Ned dead in their hotel room. Seeking revenge and answers, Spider-man sets out to find Wolverine, but what he finds is a web of lies and deceptions, all leading to a fateful moment which will forever change the life of Peter Parker!

Notes:
Death of Ned Leeds.

The costume Peter aquires in Berlin sports a "Die Spinne" logo on the back. This is the correct German name for Spider-Man that was used from the 70s to the mid-90s by publishers Bildschriften, Williams and Condor. Even Panini printed the name on the covers of the first 24 issues of their first "Spider-Man" series.
It translates to "The Spider" while the British comic book character "The Spider" was named "Spiderman" in Germany.

Also - unlike many other instances - most of the German spoken in this issue is correct (especially in the first half). It is however quite odd that a shop (the costume shop) would name itself "Geschlossen" as it means "Closed". "Olle" is also colloquial for "missis", a word one might not expect to find in an American comic book from the 80s.
