After Dennis Carradine, the man who murdered Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben, is murdered by a serial killer known as the “Carnage Killer,” Peter Parker also known as the vigilante Spider-Man decides to track down Carradine’s killer, and bring him to Ravencroft, a prison for the criminally insane. Oscorp CEO Harry Osborn and billionaire Wilson Fisk announce that their companies are working together to fund the Enhanced Crime Task Force, a privatized police force meant to contain criminals and Spider-Man, following an attack on Oscorp Tower by Herman Shultz (one of Carradine’s contractor whom Spider-Man encountered before Herman became Shocker). When Fisk offers to take Oscorp off of Harry’s hands, Harry rebuffs him. Fisk then decides to wait until Harry dies from the disease that killed Harry’s father, Norman Osborn.
Meanwhile, Spiderman is met by a man named Kraven, who came to New York City in an attempt to hunt and kill all of Oscorp’s cross-species experiments. Kraven offers Peter a chance to act as his protege. Peter accepts and the two work together to find Carnage Killer. Peter eventually manages to get a description of the Carnage Killer. He uses it and a map, which he took from a Russian hideout, to track him down, with the help of Kraven. They find the killer who reveals himself as Cletus Kasady. Spider-Man and Kasady fight, and Kasady is defeated. Peter refuses to kill Kasady, after Kraven urges him to. Kasady is apprehended by the police and taken to Ravencroft where he meets Harry Osborn’s assistant Donald Menken. Kasady is then experimented on with a symbiotic red liquid code-named Venom, which was originally meant to cure Norman Osborn’s disease.
Soon after a man named the “Kingpin” begins filling in the power vacuum. Peter makes his way to Harry’s apartment in order to receive information on Wilson Fisk, who he believes to be the Kingpin. Harry tells Peter that he is dying and asks him for Spider-Man’s help, believing his blood can help him with a cure. Peter visits Harry as Spider-Man and tells him that he cannot give him his blood to avoid another incident like the Lizard incident and needs time to research his blood, in which he turns down Harry as researching his blood is nothing but a waste of time to Harry. After the discussion, Spider-Man makes his way to Kraven’s loft, after discovering Fisk paid him to hunt Spider-Man. While there, he is tranquilized by Kraven and forced to fight him in Central Park. Kraven reveals he only trained him in order to make Spider-Man a worthy opponent. Spider-Man defeats Kraven and coerces info from him on how to get to Kingpin.
