Amazing Spider-Man – Red Goblin | Comics

One of Spider-Man's greatest enemies meets with another to form an unholy bond and get back at him by threatening everyone close to him.

Due to previous unfortunate events, Peter Parker had to ruin Parker Industries and everything it was built on in order to prevent Doctor Octopus or Hydra from misusing any of it. Currently, he is crashing at the couch of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Bobbi Morse AKA Mockingbird when he is not fighting crime.

Aside from that, his adventure as Spider-Man continues and he managed to get a job as Daily Bugle's science section editor. By this time, two mercenaries breach at underwater containment facility called Lock Box to secure a package and releases an artifact known as Zodiac Key.

A year ago, on the same day, Spidey had thrown out the villainous Scorpio into Zodiac Dimension for a year after he gained a year worth of prior knowledge of future. On the same day, Lock Box is breached and he got out while gaining the key as well.

He is eventually taken down and he warns before going to prison that something is coming for the Wall-Crawler, which he brushes off. Elsewhere, those mercenaries arrive to their employer with the package, which turned out to be the Carnage symbiote and the boss being Norman Osborn.

Then he would be called upon to by the current Sorcerer Supreme, Loki in absence of Doctor Strange. Years ago, he owed Spidey a favor and he just wanted to return it now but after a brief adventure together, the latter used it in most unexpected way Laufeyson could ever think of.

Meanwhile, Osborn unleashed the symbiote after repeatedly failing to restore his madness by mystical, psychological or surgical ways. It tries to take over but he offered to teach it becoming more sadistic starting with killing two of his own henchmen.

Carnage is intrigued by Osborn's method of torturing and wanted more but Norman agrees to that for being in full control. Not only does it repair his facial appearance, the symbiote ejected all nanites from his body that was stopping him from becoming Green Goblin.

Alchemax C.E.O. Liz Allan asks Flash Thompson to be present as Agent Anti-Venom during one of their upcoming presentation. There, Phil Urich showed up as Goblin King with his minions, which results in a fight and Peter ended up hitting the jackpot with Mary Jane Watson after the fight.

Peter and Mary Jane were at her apartment passionately making out and reminiscing about their past times together but then remember about their reason for splitting up seeing his costume underneath. Liz asks Flash again to try and retrieve the exploding metal tritium from Goblin King.

In one of his abandoned his gentleman's club, Osborn was talking to someone about Spider-Man whom he abducted and had blindfolded. Hearing some noise downstairs, he goes to check and confronts Phil, who he kills by ripping his heart out when Goblin King attacked him with a flame sword.

Norman came back monologuing to his prisoner explaining how he is going to deal with the Wall-Crawler but his hostage pointed out how Green Goblin has failed over and over in past only to fail each time and accidentally spills a hint.

With that, he managed to deduce the secret identity of the hero and his captive is revealed to be none other than J. Jonah Jameson. He then raids into Daily Bugle looking for the Web-Head and these two gets into a fight. GG threatened everyone with tritium explosives and Spidey managed to contain the blast.

Osborn got impaled on a girder and faking his dying state, he calls Parker near to thank him. Then he turned into a goblin/symbiote hybrid called Red Goblin. With his newfound power, Carnage/Goblin proves to overwhelming for Spider-Man alone.

He offers to leave him alone if he gives up being hero or kill each and everyone he loves. Even with help from his friends Anti-Venom, Clash, Human Torch, Miles Morales and Silk, Pete didn't stand a chance.

Amazing Spider-Man – Red Goblin

Despite Spider-Man having an impressive Rogue's Gallery, his villains can get a bit repetitive over times. In 2018, Marvel Comics hired writer Christos Gage (Civil War – House of M, House of M – Avengers) and Dan Slott (She-Hulk, Silver Surfer) to solve that problem in "Red Goblin" storyline.

Artists Jim Cheung (Avengers – The Children's Crusade, New Avengers – Illuminati), Giuseppe Camuncoli (Darth Vader – Imperial Machine, Darth Vader – Legacy's End) and Stuart Immonen (Fear Itself, Inferno) delivered illustrations for issues # 794-801 of Amazing Spider-Man monthly ongoing series.

Green Goblin has been a terrible menace who terrorized Peter Parker on personal level and in his super-heroism. Carnage is another psychopath who is nearly as ruthless but a lot more chaotic. When two of these terrible personas merges and creates a new one, it surely is a live horror show. With a slow build-up, the plot eventually delivers more twists and turns than readers have probably bargained for.

Throughout the arc, references of the events from One More Day, Secret Empire and The Clone Conspiracy were made. Apparently, it took place between "Hunt For Wolverine" and "Return of Wolverine" crossover events and Wolverine even showed up in a cameo in the first issue of the story.

Amazing Spider-Man – New Ways to Die | Comics

Spider-Man faces a new goblin Menace while being hunted down by Norman Osborn and his Thunderbolts.

For long, Peter Parker has been fighting crime as the Amazing Spider-Man and selling his own photos to J. Jonah Jameson at Daily Bugle. Even though JJJ was bashing his alter-ego, he was okay with the paycheck but ever since Dexter Bennett became his new boss, he has been feeling like being forced to cross a line and so, he quit the job.

Lately, he has faced a new goblin named Menace, who was vandalizing campaign ads for mayoral candidate Bill Hollister and had a run-in with him. They exchanged blows and then the hero is left under rubbles as it escaped. He sees a wave of people coming out of that building and takes some photos for the sake of a possible news story.

Since Dexter Bennett had him blacklisted at every paper in town, he goes to the office of Front Line, an independent newspaper ran by Ben Urich. They assume it to be an illegal sweatshop upon looking at the photos, even found links to it with another mayoral candidate Randall Crowne and they published a piece on him the next day.

Worried about his campaign, Crowne calls in his old friend who is the new sheriff in town, Norman Osborn and former super-villain Green Goblin. They agreed to a deal that Osborn will bring his parade of goons in Thunderbolts to apprehend the web-slinger. Plus, there is a story of a "Spider-Tracer Killer", which really makes it all easy to follow.

Bennett from DB sends Betty Brant to investigate a rumor of terminally ill patients getting miraculously healed in the homeless shelter at F.E.A.S.T. Center ran by billionaire Martin Li. She finds cancer patient and former host of Venom symbiote Eddie Brock residing there as a volunteer ever since Li has offered him a second chance at life.

To capture Spider-Man, who is now a fugitive with murder acquisitions, Osborn led a raid on the apartment of Peter Parker with Radioactive Man, Songbird and Venom from his Dark Avengers team to interrogate him about how to contact the wall-crawler as he keeps taking his photos for years and must have some means to contact him.

Even though Os-Man has no idea about Parker secretly being the Webhead he is looking for, he suspects they have some sort of working relationship. However, Normie had to leave Pete alone upon the arrival of his policeman roommate Vin Gonzales. Meanwhile, Eddie has discovered that he's been miraculously cured of his cancer.

Director Osborn sends his Thunderbolts team looking for Spider-Man over the city but the hero sneaks into his lair to confront the madman after taking down his security officials and webbing up Bullseye. When he hears Mac Gargan heading to F.E.A.S.T. Center looking for him, Spidey immediately rushes after the maniac to save Aunt May.

Gargan ran into Brock there and the latter suddenly transforms into Anti-Venom in response to the presence of a Venom symbiote nearby when it tried to bond with him again. Brock starts attacking both Venom and Spidey at the same time but ultimately concentrating on the former to cure him off his symbiote, considering it a plague on humanity.

Brock then teams up with the wall-crawler to take down rest of the Thunderbolts, who were eagerly waiting to get a piece of them. From a nearby roof, Osborn was observing the fight and then has a run-in with Menace, who comes at him out of nowhere but the former goblin quickly turn things around into his favor and throw off the attacker.

He then calls of Songbird and the other with the de-powered Gargan and back at Oscorp, he produces a counter formula using Anti-Venom's white symbiote substance. He also reverse engineered a targeting system using Peter Parker's camera from the roof for his henchmen to have a lock on Spider-Man's chest and shoot him down.

While sorting out personal issues regarding his girlfriend Lily Hollister and her father Bill being hospitalized after an attack from Menace, Harry Osborn finds out that his father has not changed to normal at all and is back in his goblin persona. Each with their own goal in mind, Anti-Venom and Spider-Man teams up to take the fight to enemy.

Amazing Spider-Man – New Ways to Die (Hardcover)

"New Ways to Die" is a six part comic-book storyline that took place in Amazing Spider-Man monthly ongoing series from Marvel Comics in 2008, collecting issues #568-573. Writer Dan Slott (She-Hulk, Silver Surfer) and Mark Waid (Daredevil, Fantastic Four) collaborated with artist John Romita Jr. (Avengers Vs. X-Men, World War Hulk) on this one.

Eddie Brock is no longer Venom and earlier, he was diagnosed with cancer (Spectacular Spider-Man – The Hunger). It happened because of his long exposure to the symbiote and it then chose former Scorpion, Mac Gargan as the newest host. Eddie has become Anti-Venom, latest member to the symbiote-family and an arch-enemy to the black suit.

The Osborn Supremacy

As the events of "One More Day" takes effect, neither Brock nor Osborn knows who Spidey is anymore and in a situation like he is right now where almost everyone wants him dead, it is one of the blessings Peter counts on. Now, one of them chases him and the other becomes a temporary ally who offers a helping hand against an awful odd.

Following his transformation, Eddie became more powerful than ever and at the same time, became friendlier than his usual "Lethal Protector" style. Though Martin Li remained inert for this plot, he may have larger plans to execute in future as Mister Negative. Osborn will return with another of his scheme in the next arc "American Son".
