Synopsis for "WHAT THE ***** IS THIS **** ALL ABOUT?!"Edit

Mac is in the center of a free for all in Time Square against pretty much everyone he's faced so far, with a dog lodged in his eye, including Bullseye and Daken. The scene than switches to 18 hours ago before all the calamity.

Jameson angrily confronts Osborn about the incriminating evidence he has on Spider-Man, but Osborn assures him that the situation will be taken care of, noting that while Spider-Man is a hero Jameson is only a politician. After the mayor leaves Osborn calls Bullseye and Daken, requesting that they bring their old costumes; he also asks Ms. Hand to organize a series of interviews for the list of replacement Spider-Men he has on file.

The Big apple Festival is about to take place, and Spider-Man is supposed to swing in, wave at the public and make everyone feel safe, however he keeps getting "distracted" (in this case by the Miss Big Apple Contestants). Redeemer, Wolfram and Dementoid join the festival, having seen the commercial for it praising Spider-Man, and hatch a revenge scheme against him alongside the Rolling Sevens & Park Avenue Gangs (the gangs having formed a truce after realizing Spidey was responsible.)

Jameson is furious that the bands who signed up for the show, along with the beauty contestants are missing. Jameson then introduces himself on stage to the crowd, and begins to bore his apathetic audience until Gargan swings in; the crowd bursts in applause. Bullseye and Daken can be seen from afar, discussing how they should have fun like the mayor said, and Bullsye throws a nearby yapping dog directly into Gargan's left eye (at Daken's behest.) Both assassins proceed to attack the Frightful Neighborhood Spider-Man, with the two gangs and Gunderson's group joining in the skirmish immediately.

Now it's back to the present. Spider-Man becomes enraged, stating that "no one ruins a carnival on his watch," proceeding to throw Daken clear into a building, incapacitate the Redeemers, knock Bullseye out with a single punch to the head and either eat, maim or web up the other gang members. Jameson then stops the fight by firing a shotgun into the air, telling them all to stop RIGHT NOW! The police chief notes that Spider-Man stopped Bullseye, and captured the leaders of both gangs running amok in New York. Jameson wants to talk to Ibanez about Spider-Man and he agrees, proclaiming both Jameson and Spider-Man as heroes despite Gunderson's protests which hurt more than support his claims.

Two days later Gargan is seen drinking a beer and watching t.v. in Avengers Tower. Norman tells him that Daken and Bullseye are home, and they will get over their anger. Gargan asks Osborn why he sent them to kill him, to which Norman replies that he was causing more trouble than he was worth. He also threatens him, stating that next time he [Gargan] doesn't behave himself, he will suit up himself. Gargan then states that he has a date to go to, having learned a valuable lesson that if you start eating somebody, finish the job. The story ends with Spider-Man swinging through New York with three beautiful women alongside him, stating its both his gift and curse to be able to get any chick in this town, because he is Spider-Man!
