apartment, Peter is stuck dealing with Glory Grant who pops by for a visit, and Mary
Jane who rushes over to Peter's apartment when she learns of the damage and
sudden disappearance of Aunt May. Peter plays dumb, hoping for some way to get
out of there so he can resume his search for Aunt May as Spider-Man. He gets just
what he wishes for when Joe Robertson calls him and asks him to come to the Bugle.
There, Peter is only asked to check out the spectacle of Jameson's latest
replacement secretary since Betty Brant went on her honeymoon with Ned Leeds.
When word about Dr. Octopus kidnapping an old woman and taking control of
Brooklyn Labs gets out, Peter rushes out there as Spider-Man.

There, Dr. Octopus is building a device he hopes will destroy the ghost of
Hammerhead which has been haunting him since Hammerhead's supposed death.
However, he is delayed by not only the arrival of the Hammerhead ghost (who starts
terrorizing both May and Octopus), but the arrival of Spider-Man.

However, Spider-Man's intervention allows for Hammerhead's spirit floating into the
path of the device. Octopus actives the control hoping to be rid of his tormentor
forever, however something entirely unexpected happens: Hammerhead is restored
back to a physical body.
