"Damage" is the eighteenth episode of the first season of the Ultimate Spider-Man television series.


In Manhattan, Spider-Man, Iron Fist, Power Man, White Tiger, and Nova fight against the Wrecking Crew, resulting in a chaotic and destructive battle. Eventually, they wreck a building nearby a bank and flee with an explosion as their cover. Nick Fury arrives to the scene on the Helicarrier, scolding the young heroes that they have caused too much damage during the battle. Spider-Man and the team tell him their theory that the Wrecking Crew attacked for a bigger plan and not to just cause mayhem. Fury then assigns them to work undercover as Damage Control employees.

Spider-Man meets Mac Porter, who tells Fury they will be in good hands as they start to work. J. Jonah Jameson exclaims how Spider-Man is finally being straightened out and how they are recording it. Trying to avoid work, Spider-Man picks up a shrink ray and accidentally shrinks Nova. The web-slinger tries to convince his team to help him look for clues, but they decline. Mac announces the building near the bank is unstable and no one is permitted inside. Spider-Man ignores his rules and heads inside, where he uncovers a hole that leads into the bank. Poking around, he discovers that all the money has been stolen until his team confront him.

Once again, Spider-Man tries to get his team to join him, but they decide to wait and play it safe, refusing to hear his theory of Mac being the true villain. That night, Spider-Man sneaks into Mac's room at Damage Control HQ using a stealth suit. There, he attempts to prove that Mac is behind the plot, but winds up short-handed. Nova reveals himself, stating he came along to make sure Spider-Man does not cause any more trouble. The two head to the roof when a huge crate filled with money suddenly appears before them. Four Damage Control workers arrive, but when Spider-Man accuses them of being muscle for Mac, they reveal themselves as the Wrecking Crew.

Spider-Man realizes the Wrecking Crew purposely damaged the city to attract the Damage Control, pose as workers, and shrink the money with a shrink ray. The web-slinger turns on his stealth suit until Wrecker breaks the device, prompting Spider-Man to flee, but the Wrecking Crew hitchhike on the web and smash into a building. Power Man saves him and Nova reveals he gathered the team to fight. The five fight the Wrecking Crew while causing very minimal damage. However, the four villains regroup and attempt to destroy Damage Control HQ.

Mac arrives with a bulldozer that scoops up the villains, where Spider-Man webs them up and the leader shrinks them to a miniature size. He congratulates the five on a job well done and reminds them Daily Bugle Communications has been filming, meaning Fury saw them in action. Even so, J. Jonah Jameson still believes Spider-Man is a menace. Later, Mac confronts Spider-Man about breaking into his office, but states there was no harm done. Nova finally unshrinks and Fury announces they are officially S.H.I.E.L.D. trainees again, but causes a lot of damage, which leads to Spider-Man handing Fury a device to clean up his mess, stating, "The best kind of damage is no damage."
