- "I think this is gonna be culturally enriching for us."
- ―Ned Leeds
During a summer trip, the students Midtown School of Science and Technology went to Prague, where they were going to attend a grand carnival. However, Peter Parker knew that an Elemental was going to attack the city, so he aquired tickets to the State Opera, using E.D.I.T.H., in order to keep his classmates outside the danger zone. At first, the students were disappointed, but eventually agreed to go after both Roger Harrington and Ned Leeds insisted.
Once they arrived at the opera, each student was offered a pair of opera glasses, but only Leeds and Betty Brant took them. As soon as the spectacle started, Parker was forced to leave, as he was needed during the upcoming battle. Michelle Jones noticed him, so she sneaked out after Parker.
