Meanwhile, Marc gains an unwanted ally in Midnight, takes on the anarchist Flag-Smasher, and finds himself on trial for his crimes as a mercenary! Can Spider-Man and the Punisher help Marc root out the source of his woes — the Secret Empire?

Then, Daredevil and S.H.I.E.L.D. confront a renewed Hydra. And finally, the Man Without Fear’s life changes forever when Bullseye, the madman with perfect aim and no mercy, makes his debut.
