The set is loosely based on the episode "Me Time".

In the episode, after a fight with Whirlwind, Spider-Man insists to Nick Fury that he doesn't like being monitered all the time and requests a day off of S.H.I.E.L.D. watching him. However, Norman Osborn tells Doc Ock that if he doesn't get results by sundown, he's pulling the plug. While Spidey is enjoying himself at an amusement park, Doc Ock attacks and subdues him. Spider-Man wakes up in Doc Ock's lab, broke free an fought Ock. He found out Ock's lab was under the East River, contacted Fury, and beat Ock. Norman Osborn then fired Doc Ock and blew up his lab to avoid S.H.I.E.L.D. tracing Ock to him. Fury got Spider-Man out but Ock was presumed dead as S.H.I.E.L.D. couldn't find his body.

Iron Fist was in the episode briefly but is not kidnapped, as Ock was after Spider-Man. In the episode Ock doesn't have a getaway car or a logo. The lab has a few differences, the is no tower with a vent, the main computer is missing, the table is different, and the container has a different design. The lab was also underwater, not in a cave.
