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.

Fear Itself | Comics

Fear Itself | Comics
The Red Skull and his followers performed a ritual of blood-sacrifice decades ago, during World War II, to resurrect the Asgardian god of fear, The Serpent. His ritual caused the Hammer of Skadi to fall on Earth but even after locating the hammer, he was unable to lift it. In recent days Red Skull's daughter Sin finds it and becomes The Skadi, Herald of the Serpent upon lifting it. The Serpent is freed from his underwater imprisonment and seven divine hammers falls on Earth's various locations. Tony Stark offers help from his company, Stark Resilient to re-construct Asgard, after the demolition caused in "Siege" but on Serpent's return, Odin draws back his men from Earth.

The Serpent actually is Odin's brother Cul, who was defeated by him ages ago for his corrupt rule after their father's death. Soon those seven divine hammers come into contact with the villain Absorbing Man, Attuma, Grey Gargoyle, Hulk, Juggernaut, Titania and The Thing of the Fantastic Four, turning them into Serpent's generals. With the newly gained divine power and in its mystic influence, they start creating havoc around the globe on behalf of their Dark Master. The Avengers and Thor opposes The Skadi and the other generals of The Serpent with everything they got but even after everyone’s best effort, The Serpent is not stalled a bit. Spider-Man, Black Widow, Iron Fist, Wolverine, Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, Red She-Hulk and Doctor Strange are assembled to make a final stand against The Serpent and his generals.

New Avengers – Powerloss | Comics

Distrust among The Hood and his gang spreads after his recent fall but they seek out a new leader to defeat New Avengers.

Trying to set a trap for Norman Osborn and his "Dark Avengers", members of New Avengers have found themselves ambushed by The Hood and his gang of criminals. Despite being outnumbered and their power dampener being trashed, they managed to get out alive and it caused a friction among Hood's gang regarding his leadership skills.

When Madame Masque was trying to point out their lack of discipline and short-sightedness, Wrecker corrected her by saying that they are all in for a "gig". He also raised question about how Hood knew that Avengers were here even though it seemed that they were clearly expecting someone else, which creates a rift between them.

Parker Robbins and Wrecker go back and forth about how they both were doing fine than the other. As they all leave, Chemistro found the wrecked power disruptor left behind and took it to Dr. Jonas Harrow. Later at their secret hideout, Hood didn't show up for a payday but then Harrow presents his device and plan to them all.

Bucky Barnes returns to his place to find it as a mess but never got to raise it during their meeting where Clint Barton suggests that they straight out kill Osborn. Spider-Man strongly opposes this idea, which is against his own values as well as Avengers' but Luke Cage proposes that they at least have a discussion about the situation.

New Avengers – Powerloss | Comics

Argument between Clint and Spidey started to get heated on Osborn and then Bucky gets a message for an emergency at Times Square. They see Chemistro randomly wrecking havoc on streets and approach him only to fall one by one. Mockingbird was only one left standing and she beat him with shield and gun of Captain America.

Then all four of Wrecking Crew showed up next, which was too much for her even with some help from Ronin and Webhead. As Wrecker was poking Cage, he and his pals are blown away by arrival of Sentry but he too, fell soon to the dampener. Osborn and his cronies join shortly and have a talk with Harrow, who shows up on his armor HUD.

He simply wants to renegotiate a deal with Norman that he previously had with Robbins and he wishes to present him the device in return. To show worth of his word, Harrow took down his Dark Avengers before disassembling Osborn's armor. When a deal is finally made between them, his armor is restored and his team gets back on their feet.

Just when he was about to ask Venom to eat Spider-Man, incoming hit from a Quinjet scattered them all. Bobbi Morse came to rescue her friends out of this mess right on time but Daken claims to have their scent. Luke Cage was not feeling very well and is taken to Night Nurse, who informed them that he is having a cardiac arrest.

Since they couldn't get through his unbreakable skin and needed the disruptor for that, Cage walked over to his enemies and collapsed. He is taken into custody and taken care of while rest of his friends retreated. Back at their secret hideout, his wife Jessica Jones wants to go in for a rescue but Ms. Marvel stops her telling they have a plan.

Earlier, The Hood went after Doctor Strange to take his Eye of Agamotto and ended up fighting New Avengers, which left him badly burnt and without power. Loki came to his aid in hospital offering him another chance and he promptly accepted. He and Madame Masque are led to Cuba in search for a power greater than he ever wielded.

For twelfth storyline of New Avengers monthly comic-book series, Marvel Comics have assigned writer Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Secret War) and artist Stuart Immonen (All-New Captain America – Hydra Ascendant, Ultimate Fantastic Four – Doom) to work on issues #55-60 from ongoing titular publication back in 2010.

Current narrative of "Powerloss" is set during "Dark Reign" crossover event and takes place almost simultaneously alongside previous story "Search for the Sorcerer Supreme". With a power struggle already tearing up criminal underworld of New York, villains have gotten their hands on a device that can strip anyone of their power.

End of Luke Cage?

After Parker Robbins briefly went away from scene, everyone in his gang has thought him to be gone for good and sided with Dr. Harrow. He arranges and demonstrates a show of what he can offer to Norman Osborn before handing him that device. The Avengers were caught in a trap without even knowing but then made it out eventually.

Only one greatly affected by that machine was Luke Cage, who needed a heart surgery and had to go back to Osborn. Though they treated Cage, a transmitter was put in his heart to make sure he follows suit when he fully recovers. More of this madness will continue to and even come to an end on upcoming "Siege" tie-in story up next.
