With bills piling up for Aunt May and himself at home, Peter considers appearing on the Beyond Belief T.V. program in order to participate in the stunts on the show, and win a cash prize. In the meantime, Jameson reveals to the public that the Daily Bugle has been sent a threatening note stating that a precious diamond and urn are going to be stolen later that night by a group calling themselves the Triangle of Evil. Spidey prevents the theft of both artifacts, but in the process gains even more bills to pay due to the damage caused by Spidey's fight with two of the members of the Triangle, Larry and Moe. Both thefts were organized by the leader of the group, known as the Stuntman, with the artifacts' owners, in order for them to specifically give Spider-Man large bills to pay. With so much money outstanding, Peter is forced to participate in the Beyond Belief show. The Stuntman announces to the director of the show that both he and Spider-Man will be taking part in the next edition. The Stuntman also reveals that he used to be a Jack Riven, the world's greatest stuntman, who was permanently fused to a mechanical suit of armor during an accident a few years ago. He blames Spider-Man for his disfigurement, as he was the one that caught him stealing money from the studio safe, forcing him to run into a fence that was struck by lightning, and he now intends to use the T.V. show to enact his revenge. The show begins the next day, and Spidey has to compete with the Stuntman in three dangerous stunts, with the other two members of the Triangle of Evil cheating to ensure Spidey loses. Spidey has to win at least two out of the three stunts by just staying alive, otherwise he and his Aunt will be penniless.
