If you guys think the Tri-Sentinel was just a couple of regular robots fused together-- you're dead wrong. This thing was the real deal, and it was headed to destroy a nuclear power plant. Not wanting to risk the lives of civilians, in a selfless act of heroism, Peter sacrifed his OP powers to disintegrate it right before it reached the power plant, by channeling all if it into one powerful blast. And when I say he was OP, I'm talking "make Thor and Hulk look like a joke" OP, and he gave everything away to save the lives of the civilians that would be impacted. (He confronts the Uni-Power again in the gauntlet arc, but that story was written by Dan Slott, so as you can imagine it was major stepdown). But that's what's so great about the David Michelinie Spider-Man run. He really homes in on the concept of great power, and great responsibility, through unique storylines like this that test his morality, and decision making. He does a similar concept in an arc a few issues later, but instead of testing him with even greater power, this time he is tested with NO power, in the conveniently titled arc "with no power..." . At first he is at conflict with himself about whether he even NEEDS to be Spider-Man anymore, and for awhile he gives it up. But each time there's an outbreak, he finds himself not being able to resist the urge to help, and winds up fighting a supervillain headed by Justin Hammer WITHOUT his powers. Peter of course having his fairly new wed, Mary Jane by his side through these tests of character only adds to the flare .
