Following the Secret Invasion of Skrulls, superheroes started losing their faith and credibility from people's mind; ushering a "Dark Reign" of evil on the nation. Under Norman Osborn's control, Iron Man is replaced as the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Initiative and everything it used to stand for is now completely changed. Worst of all, The Avengers are gone from the scene, now acting from the shadows as Secret Avengers.

After scientist Henry Pym left The Initiative, Gauntlet is in charge at Camp Hammond and is maintaining the cadets currently. To avenge their defeat over Earth and its populace, the Skrulls have implanted a mole of their own; the murderous Thor clone known as Ragnarok (who killed Goliath during Civil War) that has recently resurfaced after blasting Baron Von Blitzschlag upon mentioning that he is not the real “one”.

He went on rampage, only to be opposed by the currently outlaw team of New Warriors led by former Avenger member Justice. Last but not least, the identity of the mysterious member of the Shadow Initiative member Mutant Zero is finally revealed to everyone else of the team by Taskmaster and they are shocked at the revelation of the person who has four different persona to deal with and a history with Daredevil.

He allied himself with Green Goblin and ushered Clone Saga. Jackal fooled Peter to believe that he is a clone and Ben is the real deal but when the former died, everyone realized Jackal’s deception. Kaine believed Peter to be a clone and used to roam New York as a serial killer who tried to frame Ben Reilly for the murders.

After Ben’s demise, Peter becomes Spider-Man again and Kaine Parker lived. He sacrifices himself during the “Grim Hunt” when Alyosha and Ana Kravinoff came looking for Spider-Man to resurrect Kraven through a ritual. Kaine eventually came back to life as a six-legged freak Tarantula during “Spider-Island” event and ended the crisis.

He becomes Scarlet Spider with all the power but none of the responsibility. Alongside Venom, Kaine tangled with Carnage upon his return (Minimum Carnage), fought the Assassins Guild, bested the X-Men and teamed up with Wolverine. Scarlet Spider allied himself with the New Warriors and later traveled to Spider-Verse to put an end to the reign of Morlun and The Inheritors alongside the Spider-Men of Multiverse.
