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.

Go Down Swinging

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.

The Clone Conspiracy | Comics

When J. Jonah Jameson's father Jay was hospitalized with a deteriorating health, a New U Technologies representative Dr. Rita Clarkson offers them advanced tech to save his life and Jonah takes the offer. To impress him further to promote the company, they even brought back his deceased wife Marla. Later, Peter was forced to approach New U to save life of Jerry Salteres of Parker Industries, who recovered but started triggering Peter's Spider-Sense. So, he sends Prowler to investigate, who learns of The Jackal's involvement in all these but before he could inform Peter, he is killed by Electro and then brought back.

Meanwhile, Jay's health condition worsens and despite undergoing a surgery, he still passes away. Following his funeral, Peter goes to see Jerry but his wife tell him that New U had taken her husband when he started decaying when he forgot to take prescribed meds. Peter sneaks into New U looking for Jerry and eventually finds him or his nervous system in a stasis tube. Rhino and Electro came on call for security by Miles Warren but is taken down quickly. He shockingly discovers Gwen Stacy standing nearby and couldn't avoid being smacked by tentacle arms of his old foe Doctor Octopus.

The Clone Conspiracy | Comics

In an alternate universe that was completely ravaged in an outbreak of the Carrion Virus, Scarlet Spider was running from a horde of zomibe-like inhabitants of San Francisco. He managed to secure a research note for a possible cure and asked his secret ally for a portal to jump back home. Meanwhile, The Jackal arrives to release Spidey from his clutches as Octavius had him on ropes and offers a tour around along with Gwen. He took the wall-crawler to a room to show him that he has brought back every deceased member of his rogue's gallery who ever died on his watch and even rehabilitate them.

Seeing all of them together, the web-slinger expected a fight but instead they remain surprisingly unprovoked. His former allies Dr. Ashley Kafka, George Stacy, Jean DeWolff and Prowler showed up siding with the geneticist. Peter's friends were also brought back to convince him to work with Warren as he wishes to use his tech for good this time. Suddenly, George Stacy pulls out his gun at Gwen stating she is not his daughter and she admits to be Spider-Gwen before she jumped off quickly to escape through a vent with Spider-Man.

She and Kaine Parker came to this world to help Spidey prevent a Carrion Virus outbreak that would start as a result of his alliance with Jackal. Kaine already kidnapped the resurrected Gwen Stacy while she came to assist him. When the real Gwen starts decaying for not taking her pills, she is taken to Horizon University for care. Anna Maria Marconi learns from him that he is trying to stop Peter because he is responsible for a wide-scale pandemic of Carrion Virus as a result of his partnership with Jackal in dozens of reality.

Knowing that Gwen's cell degeneration can lead to a possible Carrion Virus outbreak, Anna tries to contact authorities but police Chief Anderson tips off The Jackal on their location, leading Rhino and Electro breaking in and take Gwen along with them. She told them to take Scarlet Spider as well because he might have a key to a cure for them all. Anna Maria willingly tags along to help them stop the decaying. Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen arrived too late to help them but The Kingpin approaches them with information to find Miles, so that he pays for defiantly bringing back Wilson Fisk's deceased wife Vanessa.

Here is your links to buy "The Clone Conspiracy" from Marvel Comics on Amazon.



A 2017 crossover event, "Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy" is mostly centered on a five-issue Spider-Man limited series from Marvel Comics, written by Christos Gage (Civil War – House of M, Thunderbolts – Secret Invasion) and Dan Slott (Spider-Man – Big Time, Spider-Man – Dying Wish), while Jim Cheung (Avengers – The Children's Crusade, New Avengers – Illuminati) served as artist and Gabriele Dell'Otto (Annihilation – Nova, Annihilation – Ronan) provided cover arts. Although, the story at first seemed like a repetitive clash between Spider-Man and The Jackal, it unfolds as more.

The Jackal’s Master Plan

Parker Industries and New U Technologies being responsible for a dystopian future seemed like a fresh take on the series. Scarlet Spider and Spider-Gwen was also enjoyable because they both played their important part that helped the story advance further while Peter Parker did his part. A huge gauntlet of fallen enemies of everyone's favorite wall-crawler including Big Man, Eduardo Lobo, Barton Hamilton's version of Green Goblin, Hitman, Hobgoblin, Jack O'Lantern, Kangaroo, Massacre, Mirage, Montana, Mysterio, Ox, Rose, Spencer Smythe, Spider-Slayer, Stilt-Man and Tarantula showed up.

Mysteries regarding The Living Brain and consciousness of Otto Octavius are finally cleared up by him. Also, the ambiguity around Miles Warren's identity came to a conclusion that even the most veteran fans probably haven't probably guessed. A brand-new monthly ongoing Ben Reilly – Scarlet Spider series with its first storyline titled "Back In The Hood" by Peter David (Hulk – Destruction, The Other – Evolve or Die) and Mark Bagley (Hulk – Banner DOA, Venom – Lethal Protector) begins publication immediately after these events along with monthly Amazing Spider-Man series.

Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse | Comics

Morlun of the Inheritors is coming with his family to hunt down all Spider-Totems of Multiverse.

J. Jonah Jameson calls Peter Parker up from his sleep and starts shouting at him to go over at Armstrong Park, where a super-villain is apparently trashing the place down and he wants pictures of that. Quickly donning his suit in a rush, he starts swinging and within no time, he reached the park seeing a shadowy figure waiting for him.

It was Morlun who came after him and quickly drained the life-force of a completely unaware Spider Moon-Man. Back in Loomworld, his brother Daemos and sister Verna were preparing for a hunt when he arrived home. Before going on a hunt, Verna slightly teases him and Morlun approached his brother for answer.

Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man wakes up in the morning at his apartment next to Cindy Moon, currently going as Silk, who came to talk about a solution of their problem of getting into an insatiable urge for mating while staying in close proximity and then she jokingly suggests that Pete should move to moon.

They came outside bumping into Looter but Spider-Girl, Spider-Woman and Spider-Man 2099 arrives to talk to him. Peter' alternate reality daughter Mayday Parker AKA Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham and Spider-UK also joins them shortly.

Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse | Comics

All the Spider-Men from other dimensions have gathered for a serious recent issue about The Inheritors, who are hunting down every Spider-Totem in existence to feed on them. These heroes all banded together to seek his help because he is the only one across the entire Multiverse who faced Morlun more than once and survived.

Everyone has gathered at their current safe zone in Earth-13, where lives an Enigma Force empowered Cosmic Spider-Man to protect them all. On Earth-610, Verna and her hounds attacks on an unsuspecting Miles Morales out of nowhere.

Meanwhile, Daemos was trashing New Warriors members Justice, Nova, Sun Girl and Water Snake on Mount Wundagore but saved Scarlet Spider for last. During his monologue, Kaine hits him with his stinger like spikes in a fit of rage, which actually managed to hurt him for once and Daemos deemed him as The Other.

As Kaine was about to bite the dust, cavalry arrived from a portal to rescue him and engaged the hunter. One of them was Gwen Stacy and he thought it was a clone from Jackal but Ben Reilly of Earth-94 assured him that she isn't one.

They all regrouped quickly to get out but Bruce Banner Spidey died at the hands of the Inheritor. Back in Loomworld, Morlun had a tiff with his elder brother regarding Daemos secretly entering into his reserved hunting ground Earth-616.

He is confronted by his entire family over his ability to conquer the assembled Spider-Army to rule over the web of life and destiny forever on the dinner table. They all then feast and then prepare to lead an onslaught upon their prey but completely forget about their outcast brother Karn, who has the ability to turn the tides of this war!

Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse

Tying-in with widely spanned "Spider-Verse" crossover event, "Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse" contains the major conflicts and happenings. The storyline is plotted by writer Dan Slott (Spider-Man – Big Time, Spider-Man – Dying Wish), collecting issues #9-15 from Amazing Spider-Man volume three.

Artists Giuseppe Camuncoli (Superior Spider-Man – My Own Worst Enemy, Superior Spider-Man – Necessary Evil) and Olivier Coipel (Avengers Vs. X-Men, Siege) were helping Dan portray this crossover from the Multiverse of Marvel Comics. At one point, a showdown between real Peter Parker Spider-Man and a time-displaced Superior Spider-Man was one of the defining moments of the story.

Amazing Vs. Superior

A vendetta that started back in 2001, when energy vampire Morlun was introduced through "Coming Home" storyline and he kept coming after Spider-Man was actually hinting at more future encounters, has finally paid off to readers. Daemos and Verna will probably be on spotlight of some future story arc as there are tons of potential to explore their character for some interesting narrative build and some awesome action.

Character like Spider-Gwen made her significant debut during this event and holds a great promise to be on many future stories as well. However, threat of The Inheritors is far from over even if they are halted for now, because Morlun has returned from dead more than once now and a sequel event "Spider-Geddon" is scheduled to take place in 2018.

Spider-Verse | Comics

Morlun and his deadly family of Inheritors are coming after every single Spider-Man of The Multiverse and chances of survival is slim.

Peter Parker is back in his own body as the Amazing Spider-Man after one of his greatest foe Doctor Octopus had taken control over it by swapping consciousness with him a while ago. Back in action after months, he also discovers that there was another girl named Cindy Moon, bitten by the same spider that gave him powers in the first place.

The moment she was freed; her existence is revealed to Morlun through her scent, he recognizes her as "Spider-Bride" and states that The Great Hunt has begun. So he goes to Earth-311, where Peter Parquagh AKA The Spider was doing a stage show at Globe Theater and beat him to submission before devouring his essence.

Following an incident at Horizon Labs, Superior Spider-Man ended up in 2099 of Earth-TRN588 as but is aided by Gabriel O'Hara, brother of Spider-Man 2099. He gave Otto a halo-agent, which is an AI form of Anna Maria Marconi to help him go back home.

However, he reached parallel universes to discovering his counterparts from other realities of Civil War, Fantastic Five, House of M and one wearing Spider-Armor MK deceased. He then bumped into Morlun's estranged brother and one of the Inheritors, Karn chasing after Spider-Man India of Earth-50101, whom he rescued and recruited into a Spider-Army.

Otto already has assembled Spider-Monkey, Spider-Man Noir, Six-Armed Spider-Man and Spider-Girl of "Old Man Logan" reality. He heads for the one from Earth-8351, who moved away from New York to Russia, have even killed Kraven the Hunter in past and was trained with Wolverine before being attacked by Karn.

Octavius arrives just in time to save him from imminent death. When the monster was chasing Cyborg Spider-Man of Earth-2818, the Spider-Army ambushed on him but he quickly threw them off balance. Cyborg and Six-Armed Spidey are taken down in a sudden sneak attack by Karn's Inheritor siblings Brix and Bora.

Spider-Verse | Comics

Fallout between the three Inheritor family-members creates a distraction that allows Otto and his team to retreat. Back in his base, he tasks Cyborg to look for anything related to these hunters. He then sent Spider-Man India and Noir to locate the home dimension of Karn while Spider-Monkey and Six-Arms go to check for more attacks.

Meanwhile, Karn goes hunting Spider-God Ai Apaec while recollecting past events of his family going against the Great Weaver. His brothers and sisters fell against Master Weaver and his mother paid the price with her life when he hesitated. A mask is placed on his face as a reminder of shame and he started hunting solo.

Peter wakes up on a call from J. Jonah Jameson shouting at him to go over Armstrong Park and take pictures of a villain who is wrecking havoc there. When they came face to face, Spider Moon-Man couldn't even land a blow before getting devoured by Morlun.

He then returns to his family on Loomworld and his brother Daemos confronts him about his recent hunt. Upon his sister Verna teasing him, Daemos states that he has been avoiding a specific thread of entire Multiverse but he former disagrees and tells the latter to stay away from it as he has saved it for last. Daemos then recalls it as Earth-616.

Peter Parker wakes up seeing Cindy Moon next to him, who suggests that he should move to another city as she can take care of New York. They go outside bumping into Looter in a Spider-Tank stolen from Superior Spidey, who is taken down by the arrival of Anya Corazon AKA Spider-Girl, Spider-Woman and Spider-Man 2099.

Mayday Parker as Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham and Spider-UK showed up as well to warn him, because he faced one of them and lived. In Mountain Wundagore, Daemos decimated Justice, Nova, Sun Girl and Water Snake of New Warriors looking for Scarlet Spider.

When he proceeds to feed on Kaine, he stabbed the hunter with spikes and actually hurt him, causing Daemos to realize that he is the Other. Three different Spider-Men came through a portal to rescue Scarlet Spidey. One of them appears to be Gwen Stacy, whom Kaine thought as a clone but Ben Reilly of Earth-94 vouches for her.

Bruce Banner Spidey bites the dust and Old Man Spider led the others away. They all regroup at safe zone protected by Cosmic Spider-Man, who came with infant Benjy Parker. In Ultimate Universe, Miles Morales is attacked by Verna and her hounds.

He is rescued by Superior Spidey and his team before they could feast on him. Peter Parker of Earth-616 is being deemed as the "Chosen One" by every other Spider-Totem, because of his track record with Inheritors. When he comes face to face with Otto, a fight among the Amazing and Superior Spider-Man will determine who will lead their creed.

The Inheritor family are currently after the receptacles of powerful totemic entities; The Other, The Scion and The Bride for a ritual to avert a crisis on them. They attack on them and only an unlikely ally can help the heroes save the day.
