Showdown with Vulture
After the cargo plane transporting weaponry from the Avengers Tower to the New Avengers Facility was sabotaged and crashed landed at the shore of Coney Island, Vulture engaged in a fight with Spider-Man, besting the young hero and only sparing his life to carry off a crate of miniaturized Arc Reactors. Due to the unstable nature of the Chitauri power core when exposed to radiation from the Arc Reactors, Vulture's exo-suit wings exploded, although Spider-Man pulled him out of the blaze and debris, saving his life.
Spider-Man then webbed up Vulture and the surviving cargo and left a note for the authorities to find, apologizing for the destruction of the plane. As Happy Hogan and Damage Control arrived to evaluate the mess, Spider-Man observed them in secret from the top of the Cyclone roller coaster.
