It's a bad day for most of the Daily Bugle staff. Betty Brant is holed up in a police station because of the death of Jimmy Fude and Charles Snow is under the pressure of a deadline.
Meanwhile, Jameson decides to investigate his own angle on the Spider-Man saves people from a fire story, one that's particularly damning of Spider-Man. After being kicked out of the destroyed building, Jameson takes the story straight to the landlord, who blames it on a man named Jake Carlton. Naturally, Jameson instantly fights with Carlton, who only has been complaining about substandard living quality of the apartments owned by Niles Williams. While they argue, Jake's daughter is electrocuted by faulty wiring, which starts a fire. Jameson helps evacuate the building and realizes that Spider-Man had no part of the arson. It was all Williams' unsafe buildings, banking on letting them destroy themselves so he can build highrise luxury apartments. Unfortunately for Jameson, the story can't be run due to a restraining order.
Elsewhere, Charlie Snow gets drunk trying to forget the pressure and Betty continues to unravel the mystery of why Jimmy Fude was killed. A mystery that leaves her apartment ransacked and her kidnapped.
