Decathlon Nationals
"We're freakin' screwed!"

Murphy joined the rest of his team for the Academic Decathlon's nationals in Washington, D.C., expressing amazement at the hotel they were staying in. The night before the nationals, Murphy went to the hotel's swimming pool with the other students.

The day after, Murphy went to the nationals with his team. Despite Peter Parker's absence, they were victorious. As a reward, Roger Harrington took his students, including Murphy, to the Washington Monument. However, while they were in the elevator, a Chitauri Energy Core in Ned Leeds' backpack released an energy pulse, damaging the elevator. Although Murphy was convinced they would die, he and the other students were successfully rescued by Spider-Man.[1]
