The Battle for Doc's Island was the first encounter between the Fortune Hunters and Die Spinne. It occurred in the dark of night in the midst of a violent storm. Multiple Die Spinne aircraft were scrambled to attack alongside a massive unidentified zeppelin. It armor plating was too thick to be penetrated by machine guns and rockets, but in its base was a powerful cell of electric energy, which just happened to be the zep's Achilles Heel, as it did not take much to weaken the zeppelin's power before it exploded, splitting the zep in two.

However, the victory was short-lived, as the zeppelin had a back up system; its massive nose revealed itself to have robotic legs on its underside, which were mechanically extended one by one until the nose of the former zep mutated into a gigantic spiderlike structure called a Tesla tank. The tank was soon destroyed by Nathan Zachary, declaring the mission a success. However, the Fortune Hunters were too late, as when Nathan arrived at the lab, he discovered Doc's lifeless body on the floor, with a Die Spinne emblem next to him.
