The streets of New York city becomes a chaotic maze of death when Peter Parker is infected with a chemical weapon called Survivor 118. The infection entered the New York water system but remained dormant for nearly seven months. The world was shocked when they witnessed Spider-Man beat down Rhino, and then devous him on national television.
The Fantastic Four captured Spider-Man and brought together a science team consisting of Reed Richards, Hank Pym, T’Challa, and Hank McCoy to figure out what has happened to him. They learned that Spider-Man’s DNA had been completely rewritten, leaving him as he was but primitive and predatorial human being. Before long, the global epidemic was in full swing, turning people into zombie-like predatory monsters craving human flesh!
Despite what was happening to Spider-Man, life continued normally for Wolverine. That is until Psylocke was kidnapped and then later found completely devoured … eaten like hamburger. As he took up the search for her killer, the world fell apart around him. The second major incident occurred at a Chinese restaurant where the Blob ate twenty-five people inside. Nom nom nom .. Chomp Chomp!
Things started to get worse when the science team realized that the virus had been around for a while, making it almost impossible to keep up with it. Reports started popping up in all five boroughs of New York and some in New Jersey. Reed Richards started to view it as a global threat. Logan was sent to pick up equipment that was shipped to the science team from Utopia, which was supposed to have arrived the day before. He found the shipment in Central Park and killed Angel when he saw that he was infected. Realizing that the infection has spread to Utopia, Wolverine traveled there and killed the infected X-Men.
