In Sensational Spider-Man #0, Spidey's old enemy Mysterio hired a certain villain by the name of Armada to steal a revelutionary new D.I.T (Digital Imagery Transmission) chip, which can emit thoughts as holographic images.

Through the previous "Return of Spider-Man" storyline Mysterio is busy buying a TV station as Randolph Hines and turning it into an overnight sensation by hypnotizing his viewers into "MysteryVision" addicted zombies. Can Spidey stop him? Read on...

Story 'Impossible, Be My Dream!'

Arc: Part 2 of 'Media Blizzard' (1-2-3)

This issue, Spidey goes against the mind of Mysterio, as ol' Benny perceives ordinary people to be crazed monsters thanks to special transparent film-like coverings placed on his eyes in Sensational #1. Also, Armada escapes from incarceration, but is quickly defeated again by a worn-out Spidey, who rips apart Armada's costume (which is too bad, 'cause I kinda liked Armada's armor). Spidey prepares himself for the fight of his life in a final showdown against Mysterio.
