One of the Kingpin's lieutenants becomes ambitious and decides to take the Kingpin's throne away. He starts a number of arson fires and kidnaps Karen Page and Betsy Potter (the Gladiator's wife) and hires Bullseye as well. The Black Widow gives DD a hand at trying to stop all this craziness.

Bill McCay, John Nyberg (cover: John Nyberg)

1996 Berkley Publishing Group - New York, NY
ISBN 0-671-00320-8

An old professor of Spidey's creates a genetic acceleration formula which genetically enhances whoever takes it. The Kingpin wants it to possibly create an army of superhuman thugs, but more importantly, cure Vanessa. Spidey and DD ponder it as a means of helping Aunt May or restoring eyesight respectively. The Hobgoblin just wants to enhance himself so he can defeat Spidey once and for all. The question is: who will get it and how will he use it?
note: while DD plays a large role, this is essentially a Spidey book

This is an interactive story similar to "Guilt by Association", only this time there are 2 books for 2 players. One player plays the role of the Kingpin, the other assumes the role of DD. There are 3 phases to the game for each player. During the first phase, DD attacks the Kingpin's sources of income while the Kingpin sends various people against DD to wear him down.

(Note: This is an "interactive story" where the choices (and in this case dice rolls) you make send you to different pages giving you different stories when you play/read it more than once.)
