SPIDER-MAN #95 (1998)

As we head closer the shuttering of this title, we get a story about Nitro blowing up the Daily Bugle and Peter having to decide whether to keep his secret identity or use his powers to save Betty Brant, Norman and Normie Osborn, who are trapped in the wreckage.  Norman Osborn faces the same choice. 

While this is a good “locked room” concept for a story (the four characters are trapped in an elevator together), it feels very low stakes because we’ve seen this dilemma so many times before.
