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
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.

Han Solo | Comics

A young human orphan from Corellia, who grew up to be galaxies' most notorious smuggler, Han Solo used to work for Jabba the Hutt after finishing the Kessel Run within twelve parsecs. He mostly hangs out with his Wookiee best-bud Chewbacca, who is also his first mate aboard the Millennium Falcon ship and has a friendly rivalry going on with fellow smuggler Lando Calrissian. His life was completely changed when he agreed to take young Luke Skywalker, veteran Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and their droids R2-D2 and C-3PO to Alderaan system for a pretty hefty payment.

Solo lost his parents in a very early age and rose by pirate Garris Shrike along with his crew before he finally escaped as a teen. From then, Han started out as an outlaw smuggler, working for his own interests. He had a short history with Bria Tharen of the Rebel Alliance until she left him for the sake of her duties. When he saved a Wookiee named Chewbacca from the internment of an Imperial officer, it became his closest ally and swore a life debt to the outlaw. The Millennium Falcon actually belonged to Lando, which Han won in a gamble and used for his future endeavors.

Han Solo | Comics

A New Hope
Solo and Chewbacca were at Cantina looking for some ways to pay off his debts to Jabba or he is in trouble. When former Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi approached him for a safe passage to the Alderaan system with Luke Skywalker and the droids, Han charged them more than his usual. Surprisingly, Obi-Wan raised his bid before leaving the place, offering more than what was asked for and that made Han quickly accept the job. Seeing a way to finally pay Jabba the Hutt, he sends Chewbacca to get the ship ready. Before leaving the Cantina, Solo came across bounty hunter Greedo and shot him first.

He soon is confronted by Jabba with his bounty hunter Boba Fett and barely managed to convince them to let him go so he can repay the Hutt. As they were about to leave, Stormtroopers shot at them but Solo ditched them and two Imperial Star Destroyers as they jumped into hyperspace. Although, a non-believer of the Force, Han witnessed its power when he saw Obi-Wan training Luke but still remained skeptical. The band reached to Alderaan systems when it was already destroyed and discovered the Imperial space station, Death Star, which pulled them in.

Darth Vader ordered the Stormtroopers to search the ship and Han Solo took them down to go looking for Princess Leia in their guise with Luke. After rescuing Princess Leia Organa, he eventually got involved with the Rebellion to oppose The Empire. Obi-Wan sacrifice himself in a lightsaber duel with Vader so that they could escape in Millennium Falcon to Yavin IV. Although Han wanted to leave right away after collecting his payment, he eventually fought alongside the rebels in the Battle of Yavin before Luke destroyed the Death Star for the Rebellion.

The Empire Strikes Back
Three years after blowing up the Death Star, the Rebellion has moved to ice planet of Hoth and Han Solo goes looking for a missing Luke. He finds Luke unconscious and managed to rescue him after keeping his friend from freezing to death. Upon convinced by bounty hunter Ord Mantell, Han finally decides to pay his debt to Jabba the Hutt but Princess Leia thought he was leaving and requests him to stay with the rebels. Han thought Leia romantic feelings, which resulted in a heated conversation.

Han Solo and Chewbacca found and destroyed one of the probe droids employed by Vader but by then, it has managed to inform Imperial fleet about the rebels. Darth Vader heads toward Hoth with reinforcements and the rebels attempt to retreat beyond outer rim. When the Sith Lord arrived on Hoth, Leia is rescued by Han and escaped in Millennium Falcon alongside C-3PO and Chewbacca. Aboard the ship, Han and Leia shared a passionate kiss before ditching the Imperial fleet into an asteroid field.

Unable to make a hyperspace jump, Han Solo land on an asteroid to repair the ship but the threat of space slug Exogorth forced them to flee to Cloud City. There, Han and his group are welcomed by his old friend Lando Calrissian, who runs the place. Meanwhile, Vader summons a few bounty hunters to bring the Millennium Falcon to him and Boba Fett eventually tracks them to Cloud City. Lando lured Han, Leia and Chewbacca to a room where Darth Vader was already waiting for them. Since he planned to put Luke into suspended animation, Vader froze Han in carbonite and handed him over to Boba Fett.

Return of the Jedi
Frozen in carbonite, Han Solo is taken to Jabba's Palace by bounty hunter Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt kept him as his most favorite trophy. Following his previous battle with Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and his friends came to rescue Han from captivity. Whatever ruse he tried with Jabba didn't quite catch on and upon discovering that they all are here to free Han, he condemned them to Sarlacc pit. Han was still experiencing temporary blindness because of the hibernation and in the ensuing chaos; he shot Fett's jetpack, sending him into Sarlacc.

Back at his feet, Han joined forces with the rebellion once again and by this time, The Empire has already built the second Death Star. Han became General Solo during the Battle of Endor and led the rebels to blow up the shield generator of Imperial super-weapon. On the forest moon of Endor, their group had a run-in with Ewoks tribe, who eventually helped the rebels in their mission. Seeing the strong resolve of his son for him, Vader manages to kill Darth Sidious to save Luke and following the destruction of the second Death Star, Han and Leia finally reunites.

The Force Awakens
Galactic Empire has fallen thirty years ago and now The First Order is menacing the galaxy, while General Leia Organa oppose them with the Resistance at her side. An elderly Han Solo and Chewbacca pulled the Millennium Falcon with a tractor beam after finding it on Jakku, only to discover scavenger Rey, former First Order Stormtrooper Finn and droid unit BB-8 inside his ship. These three were running from Imperial Troops looking for the droid, who now has the map leading to the location of self-exiled Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, whom both the The First Order and Leia is looking for.

Han and Leia had a son named Ben Solo, a Force-sensitive child who was sent to the newly built Jedi Temple of Luke Skywalker to train with him. However, the boy was seduced by Supreme Leader Snoke of the First Order to the dark side and he ultimately became a Sith Lord named Kylo Ren. Han then went back to smuggling and returns years later to help the Resistance take down the First Order after coming to meet Leia. With Chewbacca, Finn and Rey, Solo goes to his final mission at Starkiller Base, where he confronts his son to reach out to him only to be stabbed by a lightsaber and fall to his death.
