Amazing Spider-Man – Lifetime Achievement | Comics

J. Jonah Jameson is about to receive lifetime achievement award from Mayor Wilson Fisk and Spider-Man had to come to his rescue.

During his time at Daily Bugle as its editor in chief, J. Jonah Jameson had been publishing one hit-piece after another claiming Spider-Man to be a public menace to raise awareness, never knowing that one of his employee and young freelance photographer Peter Parker was actually the man behind that mask he hated for so long.

Most recently, Parker made a huge revelation of his identity to Jonah and entrusted him with responsibility of its secrecy. It made things awkward for both of them but JJJ is trying hard to make up for his mess. Although people are pretty skeptical about his abrupt change of stance on Spidey but Jameson is adamant that they all owe him.

Next thing he knows, Jameson received an invitation from Mayor Wilson Fisk to receive a lifetime achievement award from their mutual friend Spider-Man, which Peter saw him announcing on TV. He showed up at Century Club in a Limo and is greeted by Spidey but due to years of habit, started shouting at him immediately.

Parker tries to reason with him about not showing up at Fisk's party because of his criminal past but JJ believes that Parker owes him this, claiming Jonah has been trying to repair his reputation but Pete reminds him that Jameson himself has ruined it. Seeing no apparent way of convincing Webhead, he walks alone to the party.

The Enforcers showed up out of nowhere to kidnap Jonah and engage in a brawl with Wall-Crawler. Having no luck at faring against him, these old-school mobsters try to shoot Jameson only for Spidey trying to save him next and get beaten. Waking up after a while, they find themselves among the company of Mac Gargan AKA Scorpion.

A mystery voice from unknown brought J. Jonah Jameson here to tell him his own story and starts projecting events from his life. It shows how he made Spider-Man a sworn enemy to how his insane obsession to take him down eventually led to Gargan being subjected to experiment, birth of Human Fly and creation of Spider-Slayer.

Then he met his second wife Marla and his father but they all died including Frederick Foswell, fellow Daily Bugle reporter and friend turned crime boss named Big Man. However, he Jameson turned out to be a traitor when he finally become pro-Spider-Man after year of rallying people into fight against "Webbed Menace", turning his back.

To punish him for his alliance with Web-Slinger, his unforeseen enemy unleashes Mac Gargan, Human Flies and a Spider-Slayer. Among a bunch of clones and LMDs, only Scorpion was the real deal and with a little help from JJJ, they managed to defeat them all until a giant-sized version of Big Man breaks in to crush them for good.

A ghost of his past came back to haunt him for stance he took lately but things are resolved over as he worked with Spider-Man. Meanwhile, a beaten up Gargan got his payday cancelled moments before he is kidnapped by Black Ant and Taskmaster. He wakes up to find himself captive alongside with Cobra, Tarantula, Stegron and Vulture in a cell.

Following his association with Big Man earlier, assassin-for-hire Arcade lost a huge sum of money and then Kraven the Hunter came to Arcade Industries with a business proposition. Peter and Mary Jane joined Dr. Curt Connors and his family for lunch when May Parker got caught between a Rhino chase by hired mercenaries.

Venom – Homecoming | Comics

Former Army Ranger Lee Price was thinking about how life choices are so easy for bad guys and how it takes a lot of strength to do the right thing at all times to be a good guy. He is currently looking for a job in New York City just to pay his rents and his friend Tony has set him up with Mac Gargan for an interview.

Trying to intimidate his new recruit, Gargan asks him if he has ever killed anyone and what was the reason for his discharge, to which Lee responds by saying, he can kill people if needed and two of his fingers blew out in the line of duty, which has classified him as "disabled".

Meanwhile, the Venom symbiote was wandering without a host for some time after being separated from Flash Thompson. When Lee and his friends showed up at their spot at that night for the job Gargan offered, it was an exchange between Tombstone's gang and Black Cat's gang.

It went sour and Tombstone's people start pulling their guns and then suddenly out of nowhere, the symbiote arrives at the scene and almost immediately bonded with Lee. Surprisingly enough, Lee gained total control over the suit and trashed his enemies.

He then kills his own peers and a homeless man to eradicate all evidence from scene before taking all the crates with him to his home. Back at his place, his suit was having a psychic struggle with Lee over taking control on him but it fails due to his training in army.

The next day, he goes to meet crime boss Black Cat to return her goodies back to her and decides to join her gang. Seeing Mac Gargan working for her, the symbiote protests his idea and even made him vomit to create a scene, which Gargan finds quite fishy.

When Lee returned to his apartment, he stumbled onto an assassin named Firebug, who is here on behalf of his boss to make him pay for murdering Tombstone's gang. As the guy had power of pyrokinesis, Venom finds it hard to fight back but to save Lee's life, it helped anyway.

At that very moment, FBI Agent Coyle Bagman and Wambaugh, who were keeping an eye on Lee decides to intervene and take him into custody. Lee escapes but the agents find him again, forcing to work for them whether he likes it or not as they are capable of neutralizing him anytime they want if he doesn't comply.

Deciding to unravel what is really at play with her new hired gun Lee Price, Black Cat sends him to scare off a Daily Bugle reporter from a story he's been working on, where Gargan tags along with him as Scorpion. The assignment quickly turned into a fight between the two.

When footage of their brawl goes live on social media, it catches the eyes of Spider-Man and he decides to bump in. Still, things start getting out of hand and the person who has the most experience with symbiotes; Eddie Brock enters the scene.

Venom – Homecoming

Marvel Comics
hires comic-book writer Mike Costa (Web Warriors of the Spider-Verse – Electroverse, Web Warriors of the Spider-Verse – Spiders Vs.) and artist Gerardo Sandoval (Age of Apocalypse – Warzones!, Korvac Saga – Warzones!) to cook up a brand-new storyline for their re-launch of new Venom monthly ongoing title in 2017.

Classic Spider-Man villains Black Cat and Scorpion also made special appearance into this arc which collects first six issues from the series. Plus, a new host for Klyntar is found in Lee Price, who has demonstrated his capability as a psychotic killer and to become a notorious villain.

Deadliest Fanged Monster

One of Spider-Man's arch nemesis for years, Venom returns with his third ongoing monthly series but this time, the suit didn't return as "Lethal Protector" Eddie Brock was during his run, nor "Agent of the Cosmos" it became with Flash Thompson. This time, the alien symbiote finds a host that is evil and it would still be an understatement to describe him.

Things will go crazy if he ever stumbles onto another deadly symbiote Carnage in Venom suit or worse, if Carnage chose him as new host. The series will explore new turn of events in next storyline "Land Before Crime" and paves a way for a few more in line.

Spider-Man – Dying Wish | Comics
In the aftermath of the global catastrophic “Ends of the Earth” event, a terminally ill Doctor Octopus was finally taken down with his newly reformed Sinister Six by Spider-Man after foiling his manic plan to eradicate billion lives on Earth as a last resort to be remembered forever. He was placed in the security prison facility created for the super villains called The Raft, under intensive medical care. From this inactive state, he struggles to utter a single word, “Peter Parker”. To the respond of his call, Spider-Man came to pay visit to him along with The Avengers in Raft. To a point of their conversation, it is finally revealed that Doctor Octavious has previously transferred his consciousness to Peter Parker’s young body during their last battle to escape death.

While Peter is trapped in his fragile body, which is slowly dying, the Octavious Spidey bids farewell to the dying Peter Parker with taunting him a little bit. With only a few hours to live, Peter managed to summon the Trapster, Hydro Man and Scorpion to invade Raft and break him out of the prison as Doctor Octopus in a desperate attempt so that he could face off and stop his arch-nemesis Octavious in Spider-Man’s body. After breaking out of the prison, Peter led the trio who believed him to be Doctor Octopus to The Avengers tower where all of Parker’s relatives are moved. In their confrontation, Octavious Spidey nearly kills the Scorpion by breaking his jaw that shocks Parker and he retaliates by engaging Spider-Man in a final epic-battle.

Dark Reign – The Sinister Spider-Man
 | Comics
Previously known as the second-string villain Scorpion, Mac Gargan, have bonded with the alien symbiote Klyntar and became the third host, and the second Venom. Now on the Dark Reign period, he took the place of Spider-Man in Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers as Sinister Spider-Man. With the traditional super heroes out of the scene, Gargan is perhaps having the best time of life as people sees him as a celebrated hero and they also thinks him to be the actual Spider-Man. Though Osborn has a positive image of him and his team to maintain, Gargan goes out to play hero when he met another second string villain General Wolfram robbing a bank. He stops Wolfram with almost no effort at all, to impress by standing girls to take out and steals the money of loot from Wolfram after chewing his hand off for no apparent good reason.

He then goes to a stripper club to spend the loot, where he found a stripper to fall for named Cherri and then calling her Candy, Gargan took her with him to the Avengers Tower. But upon having a conversation about his reckless behavior with Osborn, he kills the stripper later and set her body to the apartment of J. Jonah Jameson; Mayor of New York City, to frame him. As Jonah approached Osborn regarding the matter, Gargan is sent to help him up. Meanwhile, a group called “The Redeemers” visits Wolfram to join them along with The Redeemer, Hippo, Doctor Everything, Dementoid and Eleven; villains who formerly lost limbs to the Sinister Spider-Man and wants revenge on him.
