I guess it's too much to hope that Spider-Man is both strong enough and competent enough that the sedative hasn't worked and he's playing possum to see where this all leads.

I feel like the psych lady is going to get cold feet when the goons reveal they're going to loving kill spider-man, and she'll somehow hold them off enough for the poison to wear off (at least three strips of him thinking "my strength is almost back...!") and that's how he'll save the day

Make sure you don't unmask him! That would be rude!

It'd just be like that scene in Justice League. "I have no idea who this is."

The following is from Ultimate Spider-Man #10, I believe. It's their first meeting.



Admittedly, in early Ultimate Spider-Man, almost every major Spider-Rogue supervillain either sees him unmasked or learns his secret identity fairly quickly.

looking at the strips we are in January so $1000 in 1979 is $3,622.78 today.

This is all part of Spider-Man's master plan to take down the Kingpin's organization by using his own rules against him. First they're going to kill Spider-Man, and the doctor because she's a witness, then everyone in the room who saw the doctor murdered, and then finally Kingpin has to kill himself.

It could still work with them being the same person. She is subtly asking for help, but the guy is just too dense to notice.
