Madame Web brings Spider-Man to another dimension where he is brought before a being known as the Beyonder, who has chosen Spider-Man to be part of an experiment to see if good is more powerful than evil. He finds a paradise planet and introduces a band of villains to take it over (Doctor Octopus, Doctor Doom, Alistair Smythe, The Lizard, and the Red Skull), and it's up to Spider-Man to lead a team of superheroes to save the planet. Spider-Man summons The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Captain America, and Storm from the X-Men. Before he can explain, The Thing and The Human Torch attack him, but the others defend him. The Lizard then appears and attacks Spider-Man, but they knock him unconscious.
