Episode 11: The Creations of Evil Part 1: The Spider Slayer
Written by Erin Delgado and Scott Tatt
(In the lab of Oscorp, the two doctors, Otto Octavious and Spencer Smythe has finished building the Spider Slayer designed to destroy Spider-Man, the Black Widow.)
Otto: "At last, our greatest creation is complete."
Spencer: "Indeed. Now we can use the robot to subdue Spider-Man and see who he really is."
Otto: "I do like to study that creature. Know how he has those powers."
(Then they see a security camera of Spidey swinging to Oscorp.)
Otto: "Well, well. Looks like Spider-Man is coming to us..."
Spencer: "Perfect! We can carry out a little test for our machine."
Otto: "Oh, ho, ho, yes! The timing couldn't have been better!"
(He picks up a remote with one of his tentacles and brings it to his hand. Spencer watches, impressed.)
Spencer: "Handy aren't they?" (he smirks)
Otto: "Is that supposed to be a pun Mr. Smythe?" (he scowls) "My genius is not something to be the subject of jokes."
Spencer: "No, I was just complimenting how useful your robotic appendages are."
Otto: "Yes, they are useful aren't they? Really makes construction work all the faster when you have six hands at once..."
(He laughs as he presses a button on the remote, activating the Spider Slayer.)
(With Spider-Man, he's web swinging across a building and lands on a warehouse near Oscorp. During as Peter Parker, Gwen told him about a man taking Curt Connors to Oscorp and Harry won't answer his calls. It worries him.)
Spider-Man: (sighs) "I don't want to believe that Norman is bad, but he is in danger and if this kidnapper works at Oscorp, it'll be trouble for him and I don't want him to be hurt..."
(Then Spidey's Spider Sense goes off.)
Spider-Man: "Now what?"
(Then some Oscorp guards aim their guns at Spidey.)
Oscorp Guard: "Freeze Wall Crawler!"
Spider-Man: "Hey! I'm the good guy here! A friend of Mr. Osborn!"
Oscorp Guard: "He doesn't want to be disturbed!"
(Then they fire at Spidey who jump out of the way.)
Spider-Man: "Great! Can this day get any worse?"
(Then a giant door opens and the Black Widow flew up as Spidey lands on a wall and sees it.)
Spider-Man: (surprised) "Wow... But I am too old for toys. Maybe it's friendly?"
(Then the Black Widow looks at Spider-Man and the optics told him TARGET LOCKED as it shoots a laser at Spidey who jumped away from the blast.)
(Another laser fires but he jumps away from the blast before he can be hit.)
Spider-Man: "Great, now I've got killer robots after me! This day really can get worse after all!"
(Black Widow turns its head and aims at Spider-Man once more. It fires another laser just as Spider-Man webs up out of the way. The Oscorp Guards watch, clearly into what they're seeing.)
Oscorp Guard 1: "Do you think spider-pants will survive this one?"
Oscorp Guard 2: "Fifty bucks says he doesn't!"
Spider-Man: "Oh yeah, well fifty bucks says that I do!"
(He jumps towards the guards and lands behind them. The guards step back in fear as the giant spider robot comes to them. Black Widow aims but cannot fire for it's not programmed to attack anybody except Spider-Man. Its eyes light up saying "TARGET OBSCURED. CANNOT FIRE." This gives Spider-Man an idea.)
Spider-Man: "Hey...it's not attacking! I guess it can't hurt anybody who's not me. I can use this!"
(Still standing behind the guards, he fires a web at the Spider Slayer's optics. Black Widow writhes around wildly, trying to see past the web. The guards take the opportunity to run for it, leaving Spidey alone with the machine.)
Spider-Man: "Now its blinded, I can bring a stop to it!"
(But before he can do anything, the web around the optics...burns away! One of the machine's features is that it can burn away any web that's stuck on it.)
Spider-Man: "Aw come on, that's downright cheating that is!"
(Then the Black Widow crawls at Spidey.)
Spider-Man: "Uh oh..."
(It swipes its leg at Spidey, who jumped back and as to figure out how he'll stop this robotic menace as it shoots another laser at Spider-Man, who web zips away from the blast.)
Spider-Man: (in his thoughts) If that hunk of junk continues wrecking this place, Oscorp is no more. Who's controlling this robot?
(Meanwhile, Gwen Stacy has asked a taxi driver to take her to Harry's house and then it arrived and Gwen got out.)
Gwen: "Thanks mister." (pays the driver) "Here you go."
Driver: "Thank you Miss, you be careful..."
(Then the taxi driver leaves as Gwen got into the manor. As she got up to the top floor she turn on the lights but it's cut, so she uses a flashlight and sees a big mess as she gasped in shock.)
Gwen: (nervous, to herself) "Okay... Either Harry and the jocks threw a wild party or someone broke into the house...."
(She walks inside and look around.)
Gwen: "Harry? Mr. Osborn? Anyone home?"
(No answer. Gwen begins to feel uneasy. What's happened and where's Harry?)
Gwen: "Hello? Anybody there?"
(Then suddenly, she hears a groaning sound coming from nearby.)
Gwen: "Harry? Is that you?"
(She walks around as she hears groaning from the closet as she opens the door and sees William, Norman's butler, with a bag on his head with his hands and feet tied. Gwen gasped as she unties the man and remove the bag from his head as Gwen helps William up.)
Gwen: "Are you alright?!"
William: "I am... not my lovely night... Thank you..." (sees Gwen) "Miss Stacy..."
Gwen: "Yeah, what happened here?"
William: (sees the mess) "Oh no... Master Harry!"
Gwen: "Is he okay?"
William: "I'm afraid that Masters Harry and Norman are in danger. Hammerhead and his boss came here!"
William: "Hammerhead. He's some mercenary with a thick skull. He came in here and grabbed me and then last thing I remember is...just waking up now. He must've knocked me out and taken Master Harry away!"
Gwen: "Oh no...Harry! I've gotta find Spider-Man! Harry could be in terrible danger!"
William: "Spider-Man? Oh yes...Spider-Man! He could help us find Master Harry!"
Gwen: "Absolutely! Let's go and see if we can find him!"
William: "Of course."
(Then the two went out and got to the limo as William droves while Gwen tries to call Peter.)
(Spidey picks up a metal beam and whacks the Black Widow's face but no luck as it's metal is strong and the robot swipes the beam away from Spider-Man and he jumps to a wall. Then his cellphone is ringing and the ID is Gwen.)
Spider-Man: (to thoughts) Oh no.... Not now.
(Then Spidey is whacked by the spider slayer's leg, knocking him down.)
Spider-Man: "Ungh! Gwen, you really picked a bad time to call!"
(He fires a web and flies up to the ceiling as the Spider-Slayer attacks again. He puts the phone to his ear.)
Spider-Man: "Hey Gwen, how's it going?"
Gwen: "Peter! Bad news, somebody's captured Harry! Some guy called Hammerhead according to his butler!"
(Spider-Man is so shocked that he nearly drops the phone in horror. Harry...captured?! And to think this situation was already bad!)
Spider-Man: "Oh crap! This isn't good!"
Gwen: "Listen, I know you're busy with something but if you can find Spider-Man and tell me where he is, that would help."
(Spidey ran from the Black Widow.)
Spider-Man: "Well, he's busy right now but once he's done, I'll tell you when."
Gwen: "Where Peter? Harry's life is at stake!"
Spider-Man: (sighs) "Okay, outside of Oscorp. He'll come."
(Then Spider-Man jumps from the laser.)
Spider-Man: "See ya Gwen. I'll talk later."
(Then Spidey hangs up and face the Black Widow.)
(With Otto, Spencer and Alistair, they watch the Webhead from the monitor from the Black Widow.)
Spencer: "I have him at last."
Otto: "Hmmm, I wonder who Spider-Man called? Could be an ally of his."
Spencer: "I think he said the name "Gwen". Gwen who...?"
Otto: "Spider-Man told this "Gwen" to come outside of Oscorp. We could have the Black Widow capture her when she arrives."
Spencer: "If there's a civilian at risk, Spider-Man will be forced to surrender! Brilliant!"
Otto: "I know Mr. Smythe! I am brilliant aren't I?"
Spencer: "If a little egotistical..."
Otto: "True, but it's a price we have to make, for science."
(Then the two controls the robot and tells it, a new target.)
(Meanwhile, a certain cat bulguar lands on a rooftop and sees Oscorp.)
Black Cat: "Time to shut you down Osborn."
(Using her binoculars she sees some Oscorp guards leaving the area and Spidey dealing with the Spider Slayer.)
Black Cat: (smirks) "Well, well. This may be my lucky night..."
(Then Black Cat fires a grappling hook and swings across.)
(With Spidey, he's trying to figure out how to shut down the robot.)
Spider-Man: "This thing's well-built but it must have a weak spot! Everything has a weak spot!"
(The Spider-Slayer slams one of its legs down but it misses Spider-Man as he rolls out of the way. Spider-Man fires some webs and uses it to pin down the two front legs. The web won't hold but it'll buy him some time. Seizing his chance, Spider-Man runs towards the machine and slides under it.)
Spider-Man: "If this thing's a giant spider...then maybe the underbelly will be its weak spot like on a real spider!"
(He stops under Black Widow and punches straight up at it. Given his enhanced strength, the punch doesn't hurt. Black Widow flinches but the punch doesn't do any damage. Spider-Man tries throwing some more punches. If he keeps going, he'll punch through it.)
Spider-Man: "Wonder how much bashing this tin-can can take? And given I'm under it, it can't attack me!"
(Spidey continues punching the spiderbot, until it pulls the legs, freeing itself and it flew up from Spidey's reach. He sees the cracks from its under belly.)
Spider-Man: "Almost there."
(Then it flew away from Spidey.)
Spider-Man: "Huh? Where is it going?"
(Spider-Man web swings after it, while Black Cat watch in amazement.)
Black Cat: "Hmmm, I do like Spider's determination. Maybe I should help him out."
(Black Cat follows Spider-Man. She stays close as the wed-slinger follows his robo-arachnid opponent. As she nears, Spider-Man hears her and turns around, surprised to see her.)
Black Cat: "It's Black Cat but close enough."
Spider-Man: "What brings you here? Looking for something to steal again?"
Black Cat: "Maybe. How about you? What's with the giant spider-bot?"
Spider-Man: "I dunno! That's why I'm chasing it so I can find out!"
(He fires a web that sticks to the abdomen section so as the Black Widow flies off, Spider-Man trails behind it.)
Spider-Man: "Yes... Got on to it."
(After a short while, the Black Widow as Spidey got onto a wall and Black Cat hid herself also.)
Black Cat: "Wonder what this spiderbot is after?"
Spider-Man: "I don't know..."
(The Black Widow spots a limo driving by and the Slayer scans it's next target: Gwen Stacy. Then the limo stops at Oscorp's gate and William got out.)
William: "Wait here Miss Stacy. I will get Master Osborn and we can all get Spider-Man together and save Master Harry."
Gwen: "Okay then, and... will you find Peter also? He goes to check on Spider-Man and I worry about him also."
William: "Of course. I'll be back."
(William leaves while Gwen waits, sighing to herself.)
Gwen: "Peter.... I hope you're not kidnapped also..."
(Then she heard a loud stomp from outside.)
(She peeks outside and sees a giant robot spider coming to her.)
Gwen: "AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! What the hell is that?!"
(Black Widow stomps over the gate and towards the limo, its optics fixed on Gwen. Its target is in sight so now it'll capture her. It raises its leg, causing Gwen to freak out and rush out of the limo. Unfortunately...that's exactly what the Spider-Slayer wanted her to do. Now she's out in the open and running for her life, Black Widow follows her, its mandibles opening up. Gwen runs, feeling as if she can run a mile without getting tired.)
Gwen: "This is a nightmare, a freaking nightmare! Now there's a giant spider bot after me!!!"
(Black Widow aims and fires something out from between its mandibles. It is a cable with a claw attached to it. The claw snags Gwen and snatches her up, the cable retracting back into Black Widow's mouth. The schoolgirl squirms, trying to get free.)
Gwen: "Put me down! Put me down right now you giant freak!"
(Black Widow ignores her and turns around, searching for Spider-Man. Now it has the hostage, it needs its opponent to see it. Then Spider-Man swings onto the scene on a strand of web.)
Spider-Man: "I don't know what you're after bug brain but I'm not letting you outta my..."
(He then notices that the arachnid machine has Gwen Stacy in its mouth! The girl is squirming, trying to get free but to no avail. The wall-crawler gasps in horror.)
Gwen: "Spider-Man! Help!"
(Then the Black Widow shook her a bit, making her dizzy.)
Spider-Man: "No! Don't hurt her!"
(The Black Widow stops and still holds Gwen. Spencer speaks on the speaker through the robot.)
Spencer: (voice) "This is your only chance Spider-Man. I'll release the girl if you surrender."
(Then the Black Cat arrives also and is shocked to see the Slayer having a hostage and what's more is that she knows her.)
Black Cat: (in thoughts) Oh no... It's that little girl from the university. What is she doing here?
(She sneaks closer to the robot spider, making sure she's not spotted as Spider-Man tries to reason with it.)
Spider-Man: "Who's speaking? Are you the guy who made the robot?"
Spencer: (voice) "Maybe I am. You'll have to figure that out for yourself...now surrender or the girl dies. We know all about your heroic ways and how you vow to protect civilian life so will you do it again and spare this girl's life?"
Gwen: "Spider-Man, help me! Stop this giant robo-spider-thing!"
Spider-Man: "But you might get hurt...or killed!"
(The web-slinger thinks hard. He can't surrender but he can't just let Gwen die! Harry was still in danger and if he managed to rescue him, how would he feel about Gwen's death? He would hate him forever! Black Widow then tightens its grip on Gwen, making her cry out as she's squeezed.)
Gwen: "A-a-aaaaaggghhh! It's c-crushing me!"
Spider-Man: "STOP! Stop, please stop! She's an innocent in all of this! Don't hurt her!"
Spencer: (voice) "You give in?"
(Before Spidey can say something, he sees Black Cat behind the robot as she shush Spidey as she has something in her fist. Maybe to stop the robot.)
Spider-Man: "All right, you win. I give up."
Spencer: (voice) "That's better..."
Spider-Man: "You must put the girl down and then you can do whatever you want to me."
Spencer: (voice) "How do we know you won't just attack the Spider-Slayer when we let the girl go?"
Spider-Man: "I won't. I'm not gonna risk her life on the odd chance I might actually take you out."
Gwen: "No Spider-Man, don't!"
Spencer: (voice) "We'll compromise. We'll let the girl go but she stays close to us. That way you can't get any ideas."
Spider-Man: "Fair enough. And once you have me, she can leave. Deal?"
Spencer: (voice) "Of course..."
Spider-Man: "All right then."
(Spider-Man walks to the Black Widow as Black Cat is under the robot and attach a device on it's underbelly.)
Black Cat: (to herself) There we go... Now to shut this machine down...
(Cat slowly crawls away from the robot.)
Black Cat: "Hey Spider-Man, get away from the machine!"
Spencer: (voice) "What? Who is this?!"
(Gwen looks down and gasps, amazed to see Black Cat there.)
Spider-Man: "What did you attach to it?!"
Black Cat: "A spark bomb which will short circuit the robot!"
(Then Cat scratch the optics on the face as Spidey pry open the robots mouth, releasing Gwen and the three got away from the Black Widow as the bomb eletricuted the robot and after a while, it short circuit and fell down as the optics turned off.)
Spencer: "No! NO! It can't be!"
Otto: "The robot shouldn't be down like this!"
Alister: "Can you reactive it father?"
Spencer: "I can try..."
Otto: "Hmmm, I have a feeling Spider-Man isn't far. You get the Black Widow up and running, I'll find this Spider-Man and his allies..."
(Then Otto left the lab with his tenctles still with him.)
(Meanwhile, Spider-Man and Black Cat gather around the Spider-Slayer while Gwen stays back as if afraid to come close to it.)
Gwen: "Is it...dead?"
Spider-Man: "It's not really "alive" so it's not "dead" Gwen. In robot-terms, it's pretty much "deactivated". But in organic terms, yeah, it's dead."
Gwen: "So what is it and where did it come from?"
Black Cat: "That's what we're gonna find out blondie. Should be something on this thing that gives us some kind of clue."
Gwen: "Okay then."
(Then Spidey looks around and sees the Oscorp symbol on one of the legs.)
Spider-Man: "So it's one of Oscorp's weapons... But why set it after me?"
Black Cat: "Good question handsome, either Mr. Norman doesn't like you very much or the Kingpin wants you dead. Either way, proves that Oscorp has dangerous weapons."
Spider-Man: "Still... It doesn't prove that Mr. Osborn is guilty. It could be one of Oscorp's workers and Norman doesn't know."
Black Cat: "Maybe.. But it won't hurt to ask him..." (smiles)
Spider-Man: "Yeah, I'll find Mr. Osborn and then I'll rescue his son. He has been kidnapped by Hammerhead."
Black Cat: (gasps) "What? Oh no, this isn't good. If Mr. Osborn knows, he'll be ticked."
Gwen: "Maybe that's why this thing's here. Norman probably knows about his son's abduction and sent the robot to find him. Then again...why is it attacking us?"
Spider-Man: "Maybe it mistakenly thought we're the kidnappers. Anyway, now it's done, we should get looking for Harry! I get the feeling Norman will tear New York apart just to find him!"
Gwen: "But he wouldn't do that... Even if Harry's life is at stake. Would he?"
Black Cat: "Believe me Blondie, Norman may do anything to get what he want."
Gwen: "Well, his butler is here. Maybe he'll reason with him and we'll find Harry."
Black Cat: "Hope so..."
Spider-Man: "But first, we need to get you safe. It's too dangerous here."
Gwen: "No arguments there. I don't wanna be a hostage again!"
(Meanwhile at Oscorp, William is looking for his master, but then an Oscorp guard stops him.)
Oscorp Guard: "Sir, you shouldn't be here."
William: "But it's important. Master Norman must know that Harry has been kidnapped."
Oscorp Guard: "Don't worry, when he's finish with his project, we'll tell him."
William: "I hope so..."
(In the secret weapon lab, Norman Osborn, now shirtless is strapped on to a lab table inside a chamber where the serum is as Adrian and Connors are at the controls.)
Connors: "I'm not sure about this. The risk is too great and we should hand the serum to the Kingpin."
Norman: "No! It has to be done! When it's done, I'll be stronger and we will rid ourselves of the Kingpin, now do it!"
(Connors sighs as he starts up the machine and Adrian turns it on as Norman is sealed and the gas is spread into the chamber.)
Norman: "At last...now to see what it will do..."
(The gas fills the chamber, clouding around Norman and obscuring his vision. Connors steps back as if expecting the machine to suddenly explode. Adrian doesn't seem too worried, more politely interested.)
Adrian: "What's it gonna do to him?"
Connors: "With any luck...not kill him!"
Adrian: "Oh it's Oscorp science, it won't kill him Connors!"
(Then suddenly, a blood-curdling scream bellows out from the chamber. Connors and Adrian flinch in surprise as Norman cries out in total agony. What's happening to him?!)
Adrian: "It's killing him, we've gotta shut the machine off!"
Norman: "NO, THE EXPERIMENT MUST CONTINUE! DON'T SHUT IT OFF!!!"
(Adrian reluctantly obeys and steps away from the controls as Norman continues screaming. Connors stares helplessly, wondering if he should ignore Norman or not.)
Connors: (in thoughts) I can't let Norman suffer. He should've tested it first before trying it...
(Norman continued screaming until the serum is gone and Norman stop screaming and he passed out.)
Connors: "Oh my god. We have to get him out!"
Adrian: "Yes... of course..."
(Then the two got to the chamber and got Norman off the table as they carry him to a bed in the next room, Connors sees that Norman is still breathing and feels his pulse.)
Connors: (sighs) "He's alive, but he needs some rest. He nearly died from that serum..."
Adrian: "Indeed so. I just hope he's OK and the serum hasn't done anything fatal to him..."
Connors: "We'll get the medical staff to look him over."
Adrian: "Good idea."
(Then as the two left the room, Norman slowly open his eyes and does an evil grin as he chuckled evilly.)
Norman: (raspy voice) "Fools... They will all fall and I will reign supreme!"
(Meanwhile, Otto Octavius spots Spider-Man, Black Cat and Gwen Stacy from a distance as he grins wickedly and with the Black Widow, the optics turned on as it's back online again...)
