Gwen Stacy: I know that we all think that we’re immortal. We’re supposed to feel that way, we’re graduating. But like our brief four years in high school, what makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever, what makes it precious is that it ends. I know that now more than ever. And I say it, today of all days, to remind us that time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life, make yours count for something. Fight for what matters to you, no matter what. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live?

[Gwen steps out of the restaurant and goes over to him]

Peter Parker: Hey.
Gwen Stacy: What’s wrong? You alright?

Gwen Stacy: It’s my father, isn’t it?
Peter Parker: Yeah, I see him everywhere I go. I can’t, I don’t know what, I don’t know what to do with it. I can’t get him out of my head.

[she turns and goes back into the restaurant to rejoin her family, visibly upset, Peter looks through the restaurant window at Gwen one last time before turning to leave]
[the next morning, Peter goes on another city patrol as a radio call-in show plays in the background about Spider-Man]

Max Dillon: You’re no Spider-Man, he’s a Leo you’re a Sagittarius! You ever speak of him again, I’m going to rip your flat-goon head off!
[suddenly we realize that Max was just fantasizing as Smythe and Max are stood in the same position]
Alistair Smythe: Now get to work.
[Smythe turns and walks off]
[Max enters the elevator]
Kari: What floor, please?
Max Dillon: Seventy-four.
Kari: Thank you.
[just as the elevator doors are closing Gwen calls out]
Gwen Stacy: Oh, hold that!
[Max holds the elevator doors open for Gwen to enter]
Max Dillon: I got it.
Gwen Stacy: Thank you, you’re a gentleman. Most people would have just let the doors close.
Max Dillon: Yeah, well, most people don’t notice other people.
Kari: What floor, please?
Gwen Stacy: Um, sixty-three…
Max Dillon: I got it. What is it?
Gwen Stacy: Uh, sixty-three.
Max Dillon: Sixty-three, please.
Kari: Thank you.
Max Dillon: In a hurry.
Gwen Stacy: Thank you.
Max Dillon: Um, I’m, uh, Max. Max Dillon.
Gwen Stacy: I’m Gwen. Nice to meet you.
Max Dillon: Nice to meet you.
Gwen Stacy: Is it your birthday?
[referring to the flyer in Max’s hand]
Gwen Stacy: The…
Max Dillon: Oh, yeah! Well, I, a friend of mine made this flyer. I’m having a birthday party in a big club, a lot of celebrities.
Gwen Stacy: Wow.
Max Dillon: I would like to invite you, it’s just that the guest list is closed.
Gwen Stacy: Oh, got it.
Max Dillon: Yeah.
Gwen Stacy: Got it. Well, thank you, anyway.
[Gwen and Max notice the news on elevator monitor about Spider-Man saving people from a fire]
News Reporter: …this guy, dressed up as Spider-Man, hanging out near the blaze
Max Dillon: It must be cool, huh? To have the whole world look at you like that. You know Spider-Man saved my life one time. Out of all the people in the whole city, he saved me. He said he needed me.
Gwen Stacy: It must be a good feeling.
Kari: Floor sixty-three.
[just then the elevator stops and the doors open]
Gwen Stacy: Oh, it was nice to meet you, Max.
[Gwen, steps out of the elevator and walks off, Max suddenly realizes she called him by his name]
Max Dillon: Wait! She remembered my name!
[as he goes to follow her out of the elevator the doors close in his face]
[Menken drives Harry Osborne to his father’s house]
Donald Menken: Welcome home.
[they walk up to Norman Osborn’s bedroom door]
Donald Menken: It’s dark in there. Your eyes will adjust. It’s better this way.
[Menken opens the door and Harry steps into the dark room which has machines helping Osborn stay alive, Harry walks over to the bed and opens the curtains and notices Osborn’s skin is discolored]
Harry Osborn: Dad.
[Harry sits by the bedside]
Norman Osborn: This is not how I imagined I would die, looking at my son and seeing a stranger. You had such potential, Harry. Such fierce intelligence, and you’re throwing it all away.
Harry Osborn: No, you threw me away. You kicked me off to boarding school when I was eleven. On my sixteenth birthday you sent me scotch, or one of your assistants did. I’m pretty sure because the card read, “With compliments, Norman Osborn.”
Norman Osborn: I don’t expect forgiveness from you anymore. I don’t believe in miracles. How could you possibly understand that you’re a child who I’d had to be sacrificed for something greater. And not just for me, for you! Are your hands started to twitch yet? When you lay awake and you feel it coming, hiding under your skin, waiting to show itself. To show you who you really are!
Norman Osborn: Retroviral hyperplasia. I never told you, but its genetic. Our disease. The Osborn curse. And it began at your age. Let me see it. Your hand, give it to me.
[Harry slowly gives his hand to Osborn who holds it in his claw like hands]
Norman Osborn: The greatest inheritance I can give you isn’t merely money, it’s this.
[he places a small drive in Harry’s hand]
Norman Osborn: A sum total of all my work, everything I did to stay alive. Maybe you can succeed where I failed.
[Harry holds the drive in his hand]
[Peter is sat in a coffee shop writing an email to his boss at the Daily Bugle with a photo of himself in his Spider-Man suit swinging away from a building]
“Dear Mr. Jameson. New pix and invoice enclosed. I think you should consider that maybe Spider-Man is trying to help. Sincerely, Peter Parker.”
[as soon as he sends the email he sees a reply from Jameson pop up with the subject heading “Wrong!!!”, just then Peter sees the news reporting Osborn’s death]
News Reporter: News just in, Norman Osborn, the legendary founder and CEO of OsCorp Industries has died. The Osborn estate has confirmed he is survived by his only son, Harry Osborn, who is the sole heir of the OsCorp corporate empire…
Peter Parker: Harry.
News Reporter: Osborn fundamentally changed the medical professions approach to human healing and effected the lives of millions.
[a footage of Norman Osborn giving a presentation is shown]
Norman Osborn: I started OsCorp because I looked at the world around me and I thought, we can do better, and we should do better. Einstein said the world cannot be changed without changing our thinking. But change isn’t just a slogan, it begins with hard work. Change begins with persistence and commitment.
[at OsCorp the department head is giving a speech to the employees which includes Gwen]
OsCorp Department Head: Mr. Osborn changed the world, and now it’s up to each of us to ensure that his hopes and dreams remain alive. But not today. Today…
[just then Gwen’s phone rings]
Gwen Stacy: Hello?
Oxford University: Is this Gwen Stacy?
Gwen Stacy: Yes, it is. Who’s calling?
Oxford University: I’m calling from the Oxford Scholars Program, we have some exiting news.
[as Dillon goes to get in the elevator to leave for the day]
Alistair Smythe: Woh. Dillon, you stay here.
Max Dillon: What?
Alistair Smythe: Theres a current flow problem in the genomics lab. Why don’t you stay and take a Look at that?
[Smythe turns to get into the elevator]
Max Dillon: But it’s my birthday. Everybody else is leaving, why do I have to stay?
Alistair Smythe: Because you’re special.
[Smythe steps into the elevator]
Max Dillon: Smythe, I mean, Mr. Smythe.
Alistair Smythe: Happy birthday.
[the elevator doors close and Max is left alone]
[Max enters the lab where there’s large tanks with eels floating inside]
Kari: Bio electrogenesis. The generation of electricity by living organisms to prevent…
[to the eels floating in the large tanks]
Max Dillon: Hey, guys. At least somebody’s partying.
[he looks at the monitor displaying Kari and it sees the screen cutting out, he looks up to see wires sparking]
Max Dillon: You’re just a little sick. Mm-hmm, I got your medicine though.
[he starts climbing up the steps to get to the wires hanging from the ceiling]
Max Dillon: And on my birthday. After all I’ve done for this company, designed and created.
Max Dillon: I know. I bet you didn’t know it was birthday, huh, did you, Kari? Think you could sing Happy Birthday for me? Well, I’ll just have to sing it for myself.
[he calls one of his colleague’s for assistance]
Max Dillon: Gilbert?
Max Dillon: It’s Max. Can we shut down, uh, power on sector, uh, thirty-two, please?
Gilbert: Forget it, I’m out the door.
Max Dillon: What do you mean? Listen, I’m up here, it’s dangerous.
Gilbert: Sorry, Max.
[the line goes dead]
Max Dillon: Hello?
[there’s no reply]
Max Dillon: Alright, I’ll do it myself. And I’ll sing Happy Birthday to myself.
[Max climbs onto the edge of railing to get to the wires and starts to repair them]
Max Dillon: Happy Birthday, to me. Happy Birthday, dear Max. Happy Birthday, to me.
[he holds the end of the two detached wires and attaches them to each other as he goes to put them in place suddenly he gets electrocuted, loses his balance and falls into the eel tank where the eels attack Max and he mutates into a living electric generator]
Kari: System restored. Have a nice day.
[Harry is in a meeting with the OsCorp board members]
Donald Menken: Harry, OsCorp’s been under intense public scrutiny in the wake of Dr. Connor’s recent, uh, breach of trust.
[Harry twirls the drive Osborn had given to him before he died in his hand]
Harry Osborn: You mean people are pissed off cause he tried to turn everyone in New York City into giant lizards.
Donald Menken: Given that, all the animals hybrid programs he was involved in were destroyed to restore investor confidence.
Harry Osborn: Ah, that is the Osborn way. Whatever’s inconvenient around here just get rid of it, right?
Donald Menken: Much of that scrutiny may fall on you now. We felt that plausible deniability was your best option.
Harry Osborn: Sure, sure. I get it. Twenty year old kid, two hundred billion dollar company. What was Dad thinking? I mean, you’re all lawyers, right? Surely someone must have questioned his sanity in the end. Someone must have thought about having him declared legally incompetent, it would have made this conversation a lot easier…
Donald Menken: Harry…
Harry Osborn: It’s Mr. Osborn. We’re not friends.
[Harry notices his father’s assistant, Felicia, at the end of the meeting table]
Harry Osborn: Hi. You were his assistant, right?
Harry Osborn: What’s your name?
Harry Osborn: Felicia, from now on everybody at this table works for Felicia, because Felicia works for me. Would anybody like to speak up?
[there’s an uncomfortable silence around the meeting room table]
Harry Osborn: Well, good. Then you can all keep your jobs a little longer.
[they are then interrupted by the butler entering to speak to Harry]
Osborn Butler: Sir, there’s a Peter Parker here to see you.
Harry Osborn: Felicia, I want to see every file on this list. Every single one.
[Harry follows the butler out of the room]
[Harry notices Peter waiting at the bottom of the steps by the front door]
Harry Osborn: Peter Parker. It’s like seeing a ghost.
Peter Parker: Hi, Harry.
Harry Osborn: Random, what ten years?
Peter Parker: It’s eight. Close.
Harry Osborn: What’s up?
Peter Parker: I saw the news, man. I heard about your Dad and I wanted to come and, just wanted to come and see you and check that, to see how you’re doing.
Harry Osborn: I’m, uh, I’m with some people. I’m in a, I’m in a meeting.
Peter Parker: I’m sorry. Um, I don’t want to intrude. I know it’s been a long time and I kind of know exactly what you’re going through right now. And you were so there for me when my parents, that’s why I’m, I’m here for you.
Harry Osborn: Thank you.
[there’s an awkward silence]
Peter Parker: It’s good to see you, man. It’s good to see you.
[Peter starts walking towards the front door]
Peter Parker: I’m sorry about your Dad.
[as Peter goes to leave]
Harry Osborn: You’ve got your braces on.
Harry Osborn: Now there’s nothing to distract from your unibrow.
[they both laugh]
Peter Parker: There he is. There he is. Do you still blow dry your hair every morning?
Harry Osborn: Um, you know, one of my man servants holds the hair dryer, but I work the comb. Okay, so, at least I’m not completely helpless.
[Peter goes over to Harry and they embrace each other]
[Peter and Harry take a walk in the park as they catch up]
Harry Osborn: After graduation I went to Brazil then Singapore.
Peter Parker: That’s right, yeah.
Harry Osborn: Yeah. And then Europe, you know? I went to Europe.
Peter Parker: I saw you.
Harry Osborn: What do you mean you saw me?
Peter Parker: I saw you in some magazine with some French supermodel. You know what I’m talking about?
Harry Osborn: Yeah, yeah. I do.
[they both laugh]
Harry Osborn: The whole model thing is so exhausting.
Peter Parker: I know.
[they laugh again]
Harry Osborn: What?
Harry Osborn: You got a lady?
Peter Parker: Uh, that’s a question. That’s a question.
[Peter pauses before continuing]
Peter Parker: No, I don’t. Yeah. I don’t know, it’s, uh, I don’t know. It’s complicated.
Harry Osborn: Yeah, I don’t do complicated.
Harry Osborn: Uh, what’s her name? Who is she?
Peter Parker: Her name’s Gwen. Gwen Stacy.
Harry Osborn: Gwen Stacy.
Peter Parker: She works for you.
Harry Osborn: Really? She works for me?
Peter Parker: At OsCorp. She does work-study at OsCorp.
Harry Osborn: Is she a model employee?
[they both laugh]
[Peter and Harry are throwing pebbles into the river]
Harry Osborn: When my father sent away me I tried to forget everything about this place. I guess that kind of included you.
Peter Parker: You ain’t got to explain anything to me, man. We both got dumped.
Harry Osborn: Did you ever figure out why your parents bailed?
Peter Parker: My Dad left a briefcase. That’s all I got, a briefcase full of junk. Whatever, I don’t know. I try not to think about it.
Harry Osborn: How’s that working out for you?
Peter Parker: Perfectly.
[Peter throws a pebble across the water, it bounces off the water several times before sinking]
Harry Osborn: Nice arm!
Peter Parker: It’s just the wrist, that’s all. Just all in the wrist, buddy. You could do it too, if you just strengthen up that…
Harry Osborn: Yeah, right.
[we see black van parked nearby monitoring Peter and Harry’s conversation]
Harry Osborn: You got to admit though, things have gotten crazy around here, man. Giant lizards, and… Spider-Guys.
Peter Parker: Just one guy, just one Spider-Man, or woman. We don’t know for sure.
Harry Osborn: Whatever, dude. He wears spandex to rescue kittens from trees. I’m so impressed.
Peter Parker: I like to think he gives people hope.
Harry Osborn: For what?
Peter Parker: Maybe eventually everything’s going to be alright.
Harry Osborn: Yeah, I just wish I had time for eventually.
[in the van Menken and his goon look at a picture of Max]
Donald Menken: Who was he?
Man in Black Suit: Maxwell Dillon, electrical engineer. No associates or friends to speak of. He submitted specs for the grid, that we appropriated. The guy was invisible.
Donald Menken: Wall Street’s nervous enough with that child Harry taking over. We’ve got to find a way to get him out. In the meantime, if the press gets hold of this accident, our stock will crater. So make sure that this Mr. Dillon stays invisible. This could prove useful for us in the future.
[we see Max’s corpse laid out in a lab, suddenly in the midst of electrical interference, Max’s body reanimates in a shower of sparks, then electrical tools jump to life as Max uses his power, he then grabs a trousers and a hoody and stumbles out of the lab]
[as Peter is walking home he gets a call from Gwen]
Peter Parker: Hey.
[later as Gwen waits to meet him, Peter notices her from across the street and starts walking over to her crossing the busy street and a car nearly hits him]
Man in Car: Move over! Get out of the street!
[he finally makes it over to Gwen]
Peter Parker: Hey.
[they smile at each other]
Gwen Stacy: Hi.
Peter Parker: You look amazing.
Gwen Stacy: I’m sorry for the spontaneous hour, but it was kind of…
Peter Parker: No, I know. Spontaneous, it’s alright. You know?
Gwen Stacy: Well, I just figured it was time. You know? Time that we try to be friends.
Peter Parker: Yeah. Friends. Yeah, that’s okay.
Gwen Stacy: I just don’t want us to be complicated.
Peter Parker: I was just saying that to someone, I hate complicated.
Gwen Stacy: Keep it simple.
Peter Parker: Okay. Great. Great. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Alright.
Peter Parker: Well, I mean,if, uh, if we’re going to be friends, then we got to, we got to establish some ground rules
Gwen Stacy: Some ground rules?
Peter Parker: Yeah. Some ground rules.
Peter Parker: Like that.
Gwen Stacy: Like what?
Peter Parker: That laugh, that laugh. That’s off the table.
Gwen Stacy: My laugh is off the table?
Peter Parker: That laugh is off the table. You got to figure out a more annoying laugh.
[Gwen tries to do an annoying laugh]
Peter Parker: That’s still adorable.
Gwen Stacy: That was not adorable. That wasn’t adorable.
Gwen Stacy: Okay I have a ground rule.
Peter Parker: Oh, good.
Gwen Stacy: Um…
Peter Parker: What is it?
Gwen Stacy: Uh, don’t tell me that I look amazing with your big brown doe eyes. Okay? I’m really serious about that one.
[Emma rubs her nose]
Peter Parker: Oh, no.
Gwen Stacy: What?
Peter Parker: I just figured out the next ground rule.
Gwen Stacy: What?
Peter Parker: No more of this…
[he rubs his nose like she just did]
Peter Parker: No more, no more of this nose rub you do.
Gwen Stacy: This.
[she rubs her nose again]
Peter Parker: Don’t think I haven’t noticed.
Gwen Stacy: What am I supposed to do? It’s allergy season.
Peter Parker: This is killing me. I got it, you’re just spitting in the face of my ground rules. I’m out.
[playfully he turns to leave]
Gwen Stacy: Come on!
[Peter walks back to her]
Peter Parker: First we get ice cream, and then I’m out.
[as Max steps into the street the car alarms start going off, he touches the head light on one car and sucks the electricity out of it, then he looks up and sees the city as a matrix of electrical energy and starts heading towards Times Square; back to Peter and Gwen eating ice cream as they walk]
Gwen Stacy: Um, yeah. So I did that, and I got completely addicted to this place that has Korean meatballs.
Peter Parker: Yeah.
Gwen Stacy: Have you been there?
Peter Parker: No, I don’t know.
Gwen Stacy: It’s mind blowing.
Peter Parker: It’s the place on 6th. I know, you love it there.
Gwen Stacy: How do you know that?
[Peter looks away trying to avoid answering the question]
Peter Parker: Hm?
Gwen Stacy: How do you know I love it there?
Peter Parker: Cause, um, cause you told me.
Gwen Stacy: It just opened last month.
Gwen Stacy: Have you been following me?
[Peter doesn’t reply]
Gwen Stacy: I knew it. How often?
Peter Parker: Just once a day, sometimes. Sometimes more.
Gwen Stacy: Oh, boy. Why? To make sure I’m safe?
Peter Parker: Yeah. And because it’s the closest I can get to being with you.
[Peter leans close to her and touches his forehead to hers]
Gwen Stacy: I’m moving to England.
[Peter looks at her in shock]
Peter Parker: What?
Gwen Stacy: Yeah. I’m, I have a, um, I’m up for a scholarship to Oxford in molecular medicine, and it’s between me and this other kid. And there’s this oral exam that we have to do and he’s like a freshman in college, but he’s fourteen and, um, and it’s, it could be him, but it might be me. I hope it’s me. And I’m going to go to, going to be moving to England.
Peter Parker: Wow.
Gwen Stacy: Yeah. And I’m really excited.
Peter Parker: That’s, uh, England.
[just then Peter’s spider sense triggers, he turns to looks to Times Square, then as Gwen turns to Peter she sees he’s gone leaving only his shoes behind]
[in Times Square Max grabs a power outlet to draw in the energy, a cop notices him and calls for back up]
Times Square Cop: Mason, I need a ten-eighty-five. Send out units to the south end
corner of Duffy Square.
[to the people walking near Max]
Times Square Cop: Everyone, get out the way, please! Get out the way!
[the people around Max quickly back away]
Times Square Cop: Sir! Get your hands away from the cables, right now! Sir, get your hands away from the cables! Let me see your hands, please!
[as Max looks at he cop the cop draws his gun and points it at Max]
Times Square Cop: You stay right where you are! Do not move!
[Max stands and starts to back away]
Times Square Cop: Freeze! Get down, on the ground!
[as Max steps into the street suddenly a big truck bounds towards him beeping its horn, Max inadvertently flips a big truck with his electromagnetic powers]
[Max is suddenly surrounded by police cars]
Times Square Cop: Get down on the ground, now!
[Max looks round with fear]
Times Square Cop: Get down on the ground, now!
Max Dillon: It’s not my fault! Stop! Please…
Times Square Cop: Repeating. Get down on the ground, now! For your own safety…
[Max suddenly notices himself on the big TV monitors around Time Square]
Max Dillon: Oh, my God. They see me. They see me. They see me. They see me.
[one of the cops starts dropping tear gas near Max]
Max Dillon: No!
Times Square Cop: On the ground, now!
Max Dillon: No, stop! Don’t do that! Please! Wait, it’s not my fault! It’s not my fault! I said stop!
[as the gas starts to overwhelm him Max’s emotions explode triggering a wave of energy that flips the squad cars, just as one car is about to land on a cop, Peter swing in and catches the car in time]
Peter Parker: I’m glad you’re not one of those cops that rides a horse.
[the cops start shooting at Max, but Max’s powers just deflect the bullets]
Swat Team Leader: All team members, hold your fire and wait for my call!
[Peter throws the cop car aside]
Swat Team Leader: Hold your fire! I repeat, hold your fire and stand down!
[the cops stop shooting at Max]
Max Dillon: Stop. Stop it.
Peter Parker: Yoh, Sparkles!
[Max looks over to Peter]
Peter Parker: Hey, how are you doing?
Max Dillon: That’s you?
Peter Parker: Yeah, I know it’s me! Who are you?
Max Dillon: You don’t remember me?
Peter Parker: No, should I?
Max Dillon: I walked into the street, the car almost hit me. You swung me up, you saved me! You said you needed me.
Peter Parker: The guy, you’re the guy with the blueprints.
Max Dillon: Yes, blueprints.
Peter Parker: Yes, I remember you. Of course I remember you, you’re my eyes and ears.
[Peter starts walking towards Max]
Peter Parker: Uh, what’s, what’s your name again?
Max Dillon: How could you forget me?
Peter Parker: No, I do. I know it. I know it, don’t tell me.
Max Dillon: It’s Max.
Peter Parker: Is it Max?
Max Dillon: Yes.
Peter Parker: I’m sorry, I didn’t recognize you with the, you look different. How are you?
Max Dillon: I don’t know what’s going on with me.
Peter Parker: I can see that. I can, I believe you.
Max Dillon: It’s strange. The power, that I got so much, I got so much anger.
[we see Gwen making her way through the crowd to watch what’s happening]
Peter Parker: I can see that. I can see you don’t want to be here. I can see you’re scared. I can see you don’t know what’s happening to you. I can see that you don’t want to hurt anybody. You’re going to be alright.
[at the same time we see a sniper aiming to shoot at Max from above a building]
Sniper: I’ve got a clear shot. Standing by.
Max Dillon: I don’t want them shooting me anymore.
Peter Parker: They’re not going to shoot you.
[to the cops]
Peter Parker: You guys, this is my buddy Max! I told you about Max. No one shoots at Max!
[as she watches on the monitors with worry]
Gwen Stacy: Please.
Peter Parker: You and me, okay? It’s just between you and me talking…
[as Max takes a step towards Peter there’s a surge of electricity]
Peter Parker: Woh! Stay right there, stay right there. Just be careful with the grid and the electricity. Just…
Max Dillon: I just, I just wanted them to all see me.
[to the sniper through his radio]
Lead Officer: If he makes a move, you take that shot.
Peter Parker: How about you come with me, we’ll go somewhere, we’ll talk away from these people, okay?
Max Dillon: Yeah. I guess…
[as Max takes a step back his body produces a surge of electricity which immediately makes the sniper shoot at him]
Peter Parker: No! Stop! Stop!
[in a surge of anger Max uses his power to take the sniper down, Peter goes to stop him by using his web but Max deflects it and uses his powers on Peter to throw his aside, then as one of the giant monitors is about to drop on a cop Peter manages to save the cop by using his web to pull him aside, the crowd cheers for Peter]
Crowd: Spidey! Spidey! Spidey! Spidey…
[Max starts hearing the crowd calling him names]
Man in Crowd: You stupid freak!
[Max sees the crowd booing him]
Woman in Crowd: Electro dummy!
[as Max watches the crowd his inner dialog goes into overdrive]
Max Dillon: He lied to me, he shot me…
[to the crowd]
Max Dillon: Shut up!
[Max notices the big monitors are now showing Peter]
Max Dillon: You’re so selfish.
Peter Parker: Stay with me Max.
Max Dillon: You set me up.
Peter Parker: No, I didn’t set you up.
Max Dillon: You lied to me!
Peter Parker: No, I’m trying to help you! Let me help you!
[Max suddenly touches the power grid on the ground sending a surge of electricity across the street which throws Peter in the air, but Peter manages to use his web to save the people standing nearby before they get electrocuted, the crowd cheers for Peter again]
Max Dillon: It’s my birthday, now its time for me to light my candles!
[he uses his power to try and take down Peter, but Peter deflects all his shots, getting angry Max grabs some electrical cables, jacks them into his chest which sucks the electricity into his body taking all the light out of Times Square, then Max starts blasting his power across Time Square tearing to shreds sending the crowd running for their lives]
