Back on Sable's aircraft, The Swan, Spidey complains how everyone in the world is siding with Doc Ock against him, but Sable tells him he's always worried about what other people think of him and that what matters is whether or not he believes what he's doing is right. Spidey thanks Sable and Widow and then proceeds to question the Sandman, who--having been reduced to his single grain last issue--is imprisoned in a tiny glass cell. By pouring in a few grains of silicon for him to bond to, they can speak to him. Sandman refuses to reveal the next location of Doc Ock's base, but Sable begins to pour a vial of acid into his cell and starts to dissolving him. Sandman pleads to Spidey, saying he knows Sable is capable of killing him, but not Spidey. Spidey, however, states that since the whole world threatened, he's willing to allow Sable to torture him to save lives, so Sandman confesses, much to Spidey's relief. Spidey then gets a call from Max Modell and the Horizon Labs crew. They inform him that they still are unable to locate Doc Ock's satellites already in orbit but, upon analyzing the data, they confirm that it does work and could indeed stop global warming. They ask Spidey whether or not they should stop Doc Ock, and Spidey says yes. Modell says that's good enough for him and that Horizon is with him all the way.
We then see Doc Ock in his hideout watching clips from around the world of people praising Doc Ock (including Dan Slott) and Ock comments how his plan is going better than even he had anticipated. The Chameleon mentions that with both Electro and Sandman out of commission, and how Rhino was almost taken out as well, that since they have money in the bank and full pardons, they should just cash in and thus everybody is a winner. Doc Ock, however, says the money means nothing to him and orders Chameleon and Mysterio to proceed with their part in the next stage of the plan. After they go, Rhino again reminds Doc Ock of his promise, and Ock reassures him. Acknowledging that Chameleon had a point about their dwindling ranks, Doc Ock sends out a secret broadcast to various super-villians to recruit them.
Back on the Swan, Black Widow informs Spidey that she has just received intel of Doc Ock recruiting more super-villians and the information comes from Titanium Man. When Spidey states he's a bad guy, Widow says that, in her country, he's considered a national hero and patriot. After Titanium Man gives them the info, Spidey states they need to recruit other heroes to their cause as well, so he sends out messages to Kangaroo from Australia, Union Jack from England, Sabra from Israel, and Bid Hero 6 from Japan. Sable also tells them that she's backing up Spidey, that he's a true hero and that she will follow him to the Ends of the Earth. Spidey gives all of them their orders.
Afterwards, Spidey takes off his helmet--he still is wearing a mask underneath--and thanks Sable for her support. Sable tells Spidey that she meant every word. When Spidey states that he always thought that she regarded him as a goofball, Sable confesses she always knew what kind of man he was on the surface. It's apparent that Sable wants to show Spidey her appreciation, if you know what I mean, just in case they should fail and if there's no tomorrow etc., but Spidey cuts her off, saying that they are not going to fail, that they will all go home, and that he made a promise to "her," thus refusing Sable's advances. Sable asks if this woman he's referring to is worth it, and Spidey tells Sable that it would take saving the world to be worthy of her. Who is he talking about you might ask? Why Mary Jane, of course!
When then cut to Mary Jane walking through New York, which is being patrolled by Anti-Spider Squad troops under Jameson's orders. Jonah is on TV stating that he is not going to see a repeat of what happened during Spider-Island, hence why the Anti-Spider Squad is out in force. When asked by Norah Winters how can he even be sure New York will still be around when they are on the brink of possible Armageddon, Jonah states they are New York, that even if the whole world goes up in a ball of fire, they will still be here. MJ thinks to herself that New York will still be here, and promises Peter that when he gets back, she is going to make sure that he gets the hero's welcome that he deserves. And as she says this, she's looking at a building with a sign that says "The Wave."
When then get scenes of Sabra, Union Jack, Kangaroo, Big Hero 6, and Titanium Man destorying Doc Ock's remaining "Octavian Lens factories." Spidey, Sable, and Widow then go to the last remaining one in Romania, more specifically on the border to Symkaria, Sable's home country. As they make their way in, they discover that the facility is deserted. Then Doc Ock appears on several monitors, and tells them that they are too late, that every last one of his "Octavian Lens" satellites are in the air and orbiting the Earth. Doc Ock then tells Spidey that, just like he was about to reveal on the beach during their last encounter, he will now reveal what he's really up to. Spidey guesses that it's to tell himi that he was wrong all along, that Doc Ock really wanted to save the world and thus make Spidey look like a fool. However, Doc Ock tells Spidey he was right along, that he couldn't stand the thought of dying, of having the likes of his genius gone forever, while the world continued to live on, and that if he must enter oblivion, then he's not going to go alone. And with that, he activates the Octavian Lens and suddenly, the entire facility is bathed in an intense, blinding heat, which begins to fry the electronics of Spidey's suit. Spidey, Sable, and Widow manage to make it outside and see Symkaria on fire. Spidey states that it's not just Symkaria, but half of the world that was facing the sun when Doc Ock activated his lens, and that they are too late, that's it's the end of the world.
