Plot summary

Black Tom Cassidy dispatches the Juggernaut to kidnap Madame Web in the hope that her psychic powers would help them defeat the X-Men. She receives a vision of their plan, and calls Peter Parker to ask him to stop the Juggernaut. Spider-Man makes many attempts to stop the Juggernaut, all of which end in failure. When the Juggernaut reaches Madame Web, he separates her from her life-support system, almost killing her. As Madame Web is taken to a hospital, Spider-Man again tries to stop the Juggernaut, luring him to a construction site and finally trapping him in a pool of wet cement. However it is only a matter of time before the Juggernaut will break free.
