A long-distance telephone call.
Bruce Wayne: So, you heard what Spider-Man’s been up to recently?
Clark Kent: Nope.
Wayne: You sound really interested.
Kent: I am, I am, go on.
Wayne: Well, do you remember a scientist at Empire State called Octavius?
Kent: Vaguely, yes.
Wayne: It turns out that …
Kent: Hang on, Bruce, I’ve got another call coming in … hello?
Bruce Banner: Hi, Clark, how are you?
Kent: Fine, but I’ve got Bruce Wayne on the other line. I’ll put it on speaker.
Banner: Hi, Bruce.
Wayne: Hi, Bruce.
Kent: So, go on, Bruce, what happened to Parker?
Banner: I don’t know, Clark.
Wayne: No, me Bruce, not you, Bruce.
Banner: Oh, right.
Kent: You guys crack me up.
Wayne: Shut up, Clark. Well, after all the trouble with the Green Goblin, Parker wanted a quiet life, but …
Banner: Green Goblin?
Kent: You remember him, right?
Banner: Not really.

Kent: … Dr Octopus, with these tentacles going all over the place, it was mad.

Wayne: But I’m telling a story.
Kent: Okay, okay.
Wayne: Just let me tell my story, yeah?
Kent: Sorry, Bruce.
Banner: Hey that’s okay, I hadn’t heard yet.
Kent: I meant the other Bruce.
Banner: Oh, okay.
Wayne: Anyway. Parker’s been dealing with a lot of problems there, and I thought …
Kent: Just a second, Bruce, got another call …
Wayne: Dammit, you supertw…

Kent: Good, good. How you been, Matt?
Murdock: Not too bad, thanks.
Kent: Hey, I’ll put you on speakerphone. Everybody, it’s Matt.
Wayne: Hi, Matt.
Banner: Hey, Matt.
Murdock: Hi, guys. So, what are you talking about?
Banner: Well, Bruce said something about green tentacles.
Murdock: Sounds intense.
Kent: And a goblin with eight arms.
Wayne: I’m never going to finish this story.
Kent: No, go on, Bruce, go on.
