The issue opens with the international jewel thief known as the Black Fox delivering some jewels to a seller. The police show up and the Fox escapes, but is then pursued by members of the Wild Pack, who eventually corner him. Spider-Man arrives on the scene assuming the Symkarian mercenaries are would-be thugs and assists in the Fox's escape. Cut away to the Symkarian Embassy in New York where Silver Sable, making her first appearance on page 12, is in a training session, and of course, survives a would-be assasination attempt. The final scene takes place on a dock where Spider-Man helps the Black Fox escape, and defeats the Symkarian agents, and finishes with Silver Sable and Spider-Man talking face-to-face and with Spidey returning the recovered jewels that were stolen by the Fox, back to Silver Sable.
