A city-wide blackout occurs. Spiderman tries to quell some of the chaos that pops up. He then learns that Electro is behind it, having taken over the main Con Ed facility, and that he is demanding money as ransom or else he'll cause massive power surges. Spiderman pushes aside his fears and confronts Electro.
Meanwhile, Stanley Carter, having had more Sin-Eater hallucinations, goes back on the rampage as the gun-wielding maniac.
