Synopsis for "The Final Lesson"Edit
Mach-5 appears on The Raft to serve as an escort to a Professor Eli Flosom who has come to visit Mac Gargan. After passing the security station, Flosam confirms that due to the removal of the Venom Symbiote, Gargan is dying as a result of his genetic mutation without the symbiote to keep it in check. When his request to move Gargan to his private laboratory is denied, the Professor reveals himself to by Alistair Smythe in disguise as the Spider Slayer who had killed the real Flosom. He is able to defeat Mach-5 and the guards and takes Gargan with him to his secret lair to operate on him and provide him with a new Scorpion suit.
