I’m your friendly
neighborhood Spider-Man! On my way to meet
Aunt May for lunch. I know. I’m late. Hey, maybe I won’t be late.
I’m making great time. No traffic, no people, no… No people? – That’s weird.
– Peter! Over here! You’re actually on time! I can’t remember
the last time that happened. [Gasps] Aunt May? Aunt May! What is…
What is going on?! A city of eight million people.
And it’s a ghost town! Everyone.
Even J. Jonah Jameson. Whatever it is that’s happening,
it’s got Aunt May. Now my S.H.I.E.L.D. communicator
isn’t working. This is bigger than just me.
I’m gonna need some help. And if anyone can help,
it’s the Avengers. Cap? Iron Man?
Hawkeye, even? Oh, c’mon. Please tell me
you haven’t been taken, too. Whew. You’re still here. If you
were gone with everyone else, I was going to be
in deep… Trouble. Abomination,
Beetle, and Skurge? Why are you three…
What are you… What did you do
to the avengers? Avengers? We’re not
here for the avengers. We’re here for you. [Roars] Correction: Deep, deep trouble. Sync and corrections bymasaca
addic7ed.com [Growls] So many questions. Let’s start
with why you guys are together. How exactly did
you three team up? Did you meet online or…? We’re not here
to answer questions. We’re here to bring
back one Spider-Man! [Skurge roars]
[Grunts] I know you’re not
the chatty type, Beetle. But maybe this once you wanna
tell me what’s going on? Where everybody is?
Who sent you to get me? [Skurge roars] Whoa! Whatcha lookin’ at?
Maybe go for a closer look! Yah! [Screaming] Uh! C’mon, Beetle.
Tell me something. At least give me a hint
of what’s going on. [Screams] [Skurge growls] The hunt is on! Yah! Unh!
Here, let me drive! Later, dumb, dumber,
and dumberest! Uh! Whoa! Huh. That’s new. I think I just found what’s been
blocking my S.H.I.E.L.D. communicator signal. A force field! Big enough
for the entire city! Like bugs in a jar. Now let’s see who’s dumb! Actually, I called Beetle dumb.
Literally. I called you dumber. [Skurge roars] Okay, fine. As far as I’m
concerned, you’re all dumb! [Growls]
[Groans] [Spider-Man] Great. Now what? I recognize that! Don’t even
think about beaming me… …into the Collector’s ship. Yeah, this is all very familiar. In an “I never wanted to
be here again” kind of way. Collector!
What do you want? Spider-Man, things
are different this time. I’m not the… [Sigh] Everything here
is not what it seems. Who’s ready to play? This is the Grandmaster.
My brother. – Always the show off.
– Your brother? The Grandmaster and I are
both elders of the universe. What are you doing
with Spider-Man? My collection orb
got him first! [Chuckles] Fine. Take him. He won’t do any good
against my team. I’m not on anyone’s team.
Why am I here? Why are you here? And what did you do with
the people of New York? Why, we’re here
to play a game. A game as old as time! Heroes versus villains. A true contest of champions! Whoever wins between
the Collector and myself, gets to take
the other’s players. And if my villains win, they
win dominion over the planet. That’s all I needed to hear. As of this moment, your game
is officially cancelled! What? [Grunts] [Groans] He’s mine!
You’ll damage him! That’s simply
part of the fun. Don’t provoke my brother. Take
my word for it. He’s powerful. [Grunt of pain] I noticed. As I was saying,
my team is the villains. You, Spider-Man, are on my
brother’s team of heroes. If you win the game, the people
of New York will be released. [Spider-Man]
Aunt May! We didn’t want the people
of New York to get hurt. [Laughs] We didn’t want them in the way. Besides, this way my little brother’s
champions are properly… motivated. We’re both being
forced to play. True. And if you
don’t play, brother, then I’ll have to break your
precious players until you submit! Now choose your team
for the first battle. I choose Spider-Man!
The Hulk! And Iron Man! Do I have a say in this? How very predictable,
brother. I choose Kraven the Hunter!
Molten Man! And the King
of the Wendigos! King of the what, now? Game on! Hulk, Iron Man. Okay, let me try
to explain what’s going on. It’s big, and
it’s gonna take a sec. [Molten Man yells] [Kraven yells] No time for explaining!
Only time for… smash! [Roars] I knew you were going
to say that. That’s always your answer
for everything. Smashety, smash, smash. [Roaring] [Grunting] Uh, Hulk? Too much smash! [Grunting] – Okay, let me explain what’s…
– We know. The Collector and the Grandmaster
are making us fight. So, let’s not
keep them waiting. Okay, I know these guys. This is Molten Man.
He likes to melt things. Kraven the Hunter.
He likes to grow mustaches. And the white furry thing? I don’t know what it is, but it
smells worse than Wolverine. That’s a wendigo!
A kind of demon snow man. Whatever you do,
don’t let him bite ya! [Roaring] [Grunts] [Growls] Bad wendigo! You don’t knock down trees
unless you’re a lumberjack! And unless you’re
wearing flannel… You’re not
an official lumberjack! [Snarling] [Growling] [Roaring] [Growls] Ungh! Uh! C’mon, Iron Man! I just want
to give you a hot high five. Too slow! [Groans] Get over here, Kraven! This is the Hulk? Magnificent. You talk
the same as you fight. Like a savage beast! [Roars] Conflict! Power!
Destruction! This game has everything! You don’t care about the game.
You only want to break my toys! Toys are meant
to be played with. And if a few of them
lose their heads, so what? The game is what matters. If we lose, the bad guys get the
world as their personal playground. – Then we shouldn’t lose.
– We shouldn’t play. Find the Collector and the Grandmaster.
Take it to ’em. I wish we could. But they’ve
got our family and friends. Until we can figure out some way
to stop the game, we’re stuck. Spidey’s right. We’re gonna
have to play the game. For now. [Angry yelling] Hyuh! A net? Really?
This won’t hold me long. It don’t need to! [Groans] Booby traps?
That’s so Kraven. that’s another one
I owe you Spidey sense! And another one! [Kraven] This is no
challenge whatsoever. You think jungle tricks
are going to stop me? [Gasping] Man! You really hate
trees, don’t you? Whoa! Puny blades. Tickles. [Blows]
[Growls] [Coughs] [Roars] Ooh. [Coughs] [Groans] Another “jungle trick”. The
pollen of the Rotuuba flower. Powerful enough to knock out a
rampaging Rhino… or a Hulk. [Grandmaster]The Hulk has
been removed from the game!Oh no.
They took out Hulk? First score to me! Not a great start, brother, and you’ve already lost
your strongest piece. [Grandmaster]Attention players!
The game continues.We draw first. Quickly! While they’re
disorganized. Press the advantage! [Growls] Hulk got knocked out, then
yanked off the game board. So we’re a man down. Any chance you have a plan? At this
point I’m open to suggestions. Molten Man and wendigo seem to
be taking orders from Kraven. Go for the head
of the snake, right? Now where are you, Kraven? There he is. I’ll take him. Wait! Don’t let Kraven
play you! It could be a trap! Wendigo’s still out… [Cry of pain] [Grunting] I… found him. [Sighs] Aw, nuts. [Squirrel chatters] Really? I don’t have time for you,
you walking hair piece! Running away, Kraven? I thought you were
supposed to be a hunter. Hunting is not
the same as fighting. Aah! – Hot.
– I am not a fighter. I am a hunter. [Grunting] And you, Iron Man,
are prey. [Spider-Man]
Iron Man! Yah! Everything’s fused!
I can’t move! Tony, no! Iron Man has been
removed from the game. My Iron Man!
You ruined him! Oh, why are you complaining?
You should be thanking me. Now he’s battle damaged.
You’re welcome! [Chuckles] No Hulk. No Iron Man. [Laughing] [Roaring] It’s just me. Without a hope.
Without a chance. [Grunting] So, which one of you guys
is the strongest? – [Molten man] I am!
– I am. [Roars] No way Molten Man’s stronger
than you, right, Wendigo? [Growls] Trying to play us
against each other. Clever.
But it won’t work. We’ll figure it out after
we take care of… oh! That’s right, big guy. Everything’s going
according to… Whoa! [Softly] …Tree. My self esteem hurts.
Along with everything else. Ow. Huh? Sorry, Molty. I don’t know
where those hands have been! [Growling] [Sighs] Once again, the Grandmaster
on the verge of victory! You must get tired of
losing to me all the time. Your entire existence
must be difficult when I’m so obviously
superior in all things! Yes. A superior troll. Ya know, I’d like to say something
like this doesn’t happen every time I go through
central park, but… [grunts] [Growls] They’re not going away, so I’m
gonna need some way to lose ’em. [Strains] Wendigo! Think fast! [Growls] [Groaning] That felt so good! ok, Spidey, take a breath. Just gotta figure out
my next move. And I got nothing. Man, I could really use a team.
I can’t do this all by myself. No, but I have to try.
I can’t wait for someone else. There is no one else.
It’s up to me. Aunt May’s favorite skate trail?
Weird seeing it empty. Won’t be empty for long. I’m gonna
fight, and I’m gonna get Aunt May back. And now I know how. His tracks end here.
The spider is close. Stop me if you’ve
heard this one before. A hunter, a monster, and a
space heater go to the park. Anyone? Anyone? He’s given away his location. Follow his voice…quietly. [Snarls] [Footsteps pounding] [Snarls] I knew you’d find me first,
Wendy. You’re consistent. And by consistent,
I mean predictable. Say good night,
“Wendi gone!” [Angry grunt] Wendigo has been
removed from the game! Gloat while you can, brother!
I still have two more players! Know what I like
about you guys? You’re really bad at the whole
try to hit Spider-Man thing. [Grunt] I mean really bad. Hey Kraven,
the so called hunter! You couldn’t track down
a hamburger in a hamburger shop! [Panting] Pace yourself, Molty. You
don’t want to get overheated! [Wheezing] Yah! [Yells, grunts] Kraven! I really thought you
were going to get me that time! Nah, no I didn’t. [Growling] Yoo hoo! Melty man!
Huh? Yah! [Cries out] Catch me if you can! [Growls] All that fire sucking up
your oxygen, big guy? [Panting] Ah ah! No peeking! You should look
where you’re stepping! If that were
somehow possible with all the webbing
I’m putting in your eyes. You little pest. You think
your silly spray can stop me? Oh no! You’re going
to burn right through! Burn through what? The dock. [Angry yell] Enjoy your steam bath. [Collector] Molten Man has
been removed from the game! [Angry growl] Kraven! I know you’re out there! Don’t suppose I could talk you
into surrendering, can I? With Grandmaster
promising us power? Power enough for Kraven?
Don’t be a fool. Ee yah! Not my favorite lamp post! It’s over, Spider-Man. This
world belongs to the strong. Not to the prey, but
to the hunters! To me! The world doesn’t belong to you!
It belongs to the people! [Puzzled grunting] [Collector]Kraven has been removed
from the game! Spider-Man wins!Yay, me. [Groaning] No! This isn’t…
You must’ve… Agghh! Good beats evil!
Now let everyone go. You can keep the villains.
Wait, no you can’t. You gotta let them go, too. Eventually. But let’s get
everyone else freed right now! You fought valiantly,
Spider-Man. But this is only round one of
a much greater tournament. I don’t think so. Your
weird, twisted game is done! Perhaps you’ve forgotten
the stakes of the game? I can remind you,
if you’d like. I could simply drop a few of
them out an airlock into space. If it will renew your
enthusiasm for the game. Okay, Grandmaster.
I’ll play. [Devilish laughing] I’m gonna play.
I’m gonna win. Then I’m going to end
your little game for good. Sync and corrections bymasaca
