Spider-Man – One More Day | Comics

On the verge of losing Aunt May, Peter Parker desperately searches for a way to save her and perhaps will make a deal with the devil.

To show his support for the Super-Human Registration Act, Spider-Man previously revealed his secret identity to the whole world in a press conference but after his falling with Tony Stark, he is no longer living under the security of Stark Tower now and old villains are coming after his family and close friends.

In one such instance, Kingpin hires an assassin to settle past scores with the hero by either taking him out or any of his loved ones. The sniper missed Peter Parker and he even managed to save Mary Jane but the bullet eventually hit Aunt May.

She is quickly admitted into a hospital under the false name May Morgan and Peter cannot help but blame himself for her current state while her condition only worsens. The doctor in charge inquires about her health insurance for treatment and notifies to shift her in charity ward unless they have one.

He assures Peter that he is going to do whatever he can and he goes back to Stark Tower, leading a confrontation with Iron Man. After a brief tussle, he informs Tony about May and holds him responsible for her current predicament.

Though he refused to get involved directly and let Peter walk away, he later sends Edwin Jarvis to see May and even pay for her bills. The doctor promises to make her last days comfortable but refusing to give up just yet, Pete says goodbye to Mary Jane before go looking for a way to save his aunt.

He stops at the door of Sanctum Sanctorum to see Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange to find out if there is anything that can work. He too confides that there is nothing that cannot be done but still offers him a chance to travel in space and time to look for help since Spidey refused to give up hope.

One by one, Spider-Man approached Nurse Anne Ghazikhanian, Beast, Black Panther, Doctor Curt Connors, Doctor Doom, Dead Girl, Doctor Octopus, Mister Fantastic, Mister Hyde, Morbius, Storm, Wizard and Yellowjacket with his urgency but all of them had the same answers.

Stephen Strange then goes inside to bring him a drink to relieve his stress and a curious Parker jumps into The Hands of the Dead to alter destiny only to be attacked by a group of Nightwalkers who watches over to prevent altering destiny.

A timely intervention by Strange saved him and brought back to reality before he was being assimilated by those beings. Failed with every attempt, he sits on the stairs of Sanctum when a red bird starting to say the same words spoken by Stephen earlier and he followed it into an alley way to find a little girl who leads him into an alleyway.

It turns out to be Mephisto and surprisingly enough, he isn't interested in taking Peter's soul at all. However, he wants Peter and Mary Jane to give up their bond of holy matrimony in return for saving May's life.

One Deal Breaker

Straczynski's attempt to bring a major paranormal character as Mephisto into a Spider-Man story for creating a greater impact was a move they all planned long before and he decided to execute it before he finished his run on the series. Although many have initially protested against the idea but in a long-run, it created a burden for the hero to carry around.

In the aftermath of this story, the series sees a legendary run in "Brand New Day", which started a new status quo for everyone's favorite wall-crawler and his friends. Mary Jane Watson also stays around without her and Peter hooking up again. Plus, new characters like Carlie Cooper, Daily Bugle's new owner Dexter Bennett and Menace are introduced.

When near it is revealed that its body is torn in half and The Hulk is seen standing behind holding the other half of the shark.

When he reaches to the shore, Hulk turns into Banner and is rescued by two stranger Ripley and Green. They all ran for their life after having been chased by a monster out of nowhere. Just about when they thought they are safe after moving to a corner, the Gray Hulk appears and threatened to smash them all. Upon standing on his feet, Dr. Bruce Banner quickly turns into the Hulk again to fight back and engages with his old incarnation.

Many punches are exchanged between these gamma-powered goliath till one fell. When Gray Hulk is subdued by the green Hulk, it turned out to be an imposter posed by a Mindless One. As this takes place, someone from a place unknown is keenly watching over the fight. While Hulk was trying to figure out what is going on, the legendary Fin Fang Foom enters the scene. As he tried to obliterate the Hulk after he refused to kneel before the Dragon Lord, Hulk taught him a good lesson he would remember for some time.

Ripley and Gwen are then approached by General “Thunderbolt” Ross on the other side of the jungle who led them to a secret military base called Project Smash in this mysterious Monster Island. Meanwhile, in a flashback sequence, a younger Bruce Banner is seen to have trouble in his school life and he is talking to his imaginary friend Hulk, who suggests him to smash all the puny humans. He gets beat up for standing up for a girl, his school taechers are worried for him and his abusive father tries to reach out to him.

General Ross was taking Ripley and Gwen to the facility but then gets attacked by a ferocious two-headed dog. As the situation was not crazy enough, the feral X-Man with a nasty temper shows up to slice and dice things up and so does a certain Conqueror. Or maybe someone else is responsible for the whole show.

She gave birth to a baby on her own and as she was about to hit by a car, costumed crime-fighting superhero Daredevil came to her rescue out of nowhere and knocked the attackers down. When he turns back to ask the girl questions and he was left alone to face the cops for the mess he just made.

Later at Nelson and Murdock law firm, Matt was still unable to shake off the thoughts of Karen when his friend and partner Foggy Nelson introduces a client of a multi-million dollar divorce case named Lydia McKenzie but he hears the heartbeats of that running girl from midnight and her infant child.

Eventually she comes to his office next day claiming an Angel sent her to meet him and she apparently knows who he really is. She hands him over her child to keep it safe from the people chasing after her and then leaves at once.

Matt was astound to learn that she never having engaged in a sexual encounter with anyone before, which means that the child is either a messiah or could be an Antichrist. He called in his former flame and an active Avenger member, Black Widow who thought it was a booty call just like old times.

Natasha Romanov later tries to protect the child from harm upon hearing his side of the story when Murdock even violently attacks her to get the baby. Meanwhile, Karen Page suddenly shows up at his door after having the shocking revelation of being HIV positive because of her time as a drug-addicted porn star in past.

Foggy is suddenly found accused for a murder of a divorcee with whom he was having a secret affair for some time. This led him to be fired by the law firm of his own mother to avoid further problems regarding this case which also disgusts Matthew. While trying to find answers to his questions, Daredevil came across his arch-enemy Bullseye.

He returns to get a piece on him for ol' time's sake and left a lot of bodies behind trying to get the baby. The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man also came by to visit him briefly.
