J. Jonah Jameson has claimed to have uncovered the identity of Spider-Man, but he’s only teased his readers with this and hasn’t published yet. The various members of the Sinister Six see this as their chance to finally rid themselves of Spidey and they aren’t willing to wait for the next edition! They want this information NOW! (Of course if they can cause massive destruction along the way, that’s even better!)
Heroes must fight their way through several different floors of the Bugle and remove the villains from the premises by any means possible. The Operation culminates with a rooftop fight against a new villain, The Vulture!
