Donning their masks, the group entered Queens Community Bank and used a Chitauri Blowtorch to cut open an ATM before using a Anti-Gravity Gun to rip it out of the wall. While celebrating their current success and planning to hit several other banks, Spider-Man showed up, casually entering the bank and making his presence known, sarcastically referring to them as the real Avengers, and engaged them in battle.
At first, the robbers were being dealt with, with little effort by their attacker until one of them brandished their anti-gravity gun and began to throw Spider-Man around the bank. Eventually, Spider-Man managed to subdue the robbers, but one of them increased the power of their Chitauri Blowtorch and losing control of it, leveled the bank and destroyed nearby bodega Delmar's Deli-Grocery. Realizing that Delmar was still in the bodega, Spider-Man left to rescue Delmar and his pet cat Murph while the criminals escaped the scene.
