Ra's al Ghul begins plans for worldwide devastation. He manipulates the Kingpin to his side by infecting the crime lord's wife Vanessa Fisk with cancer and promising him the cure in return for his allegiance. Ra's then orders him to press the button on his machines which would send New York City under the ocean. Ultimately, Spider-Man and Batman interfere and the Kingpin reveals that he knows Ra's' plans and allows the two heroes to board his plane so they can assist him. Defeated, Ra's bows out of the plan gracefully but claims that there is no cure for the cancer. Vanessa convinces her husband that she wishes no further violence, and they leave. Talia al Ghul soon gives the cure to Batman, who then gives it to Spider-Man, who passes it on to the Kingpin.
