Peter goes after Strange, demanding to know how Carlie could have uncovered his identity after his spell.



The thing he has to do is give MJ the antidote, since she still has her spider-powers.

Also, Kaine is now scarless, and from the looks of it I'm guessing he's going to be the new Scarlet Spider. I liked what they did with Kaine when they brought him back (before 'killing' him off), but I'm not too crazy about prettifying him and making him some sort of superhero. And why tease the possibility of bringing Ben back?

And Julia Carpenter, the new Madame Web (I still don't understand why they had to kill off the old one and make her the new one) apologizes to Peter about the loss that's to come.

Thing is, under the specific terms of the hoojoo that wouldn't matter. He could have a thousand Parker clones with spider powers and he wouldn't be able to figure it out, because as shown in this issue, the only way anyone could find out his identity was if Pete intentionally revealed it.

Like I said. Truck-sized hole.

Yeah, but he's got that due to the clones. He's got to have footage of Peter unmasking or even Ben Reilly thinking he's Spider-Man saying "I AM SPIDER-MAN"

My personal thought is it goes like this.

"Hmmm. What to watch tonight? Porn. Gay Porn. Dwarf Porn. Furrie Porn. Wait what's this? "Peter Parker/Ben Reilly/Spider-Man footage #235. Nyahahahaha! How could I have forgotten this video? It must be all these men having a three way! Perhaps I can use Spider-Man's homosexual love of Peter Parker against him in some way!"

15 minutes later....

"HOLY CRAP! PETER PARKER IS SPIDER-MAN! HOW DID I NOT REMEMBER THIS?"

Said footage would have been wiped/altered under the terms of the hoojoo though, otherwise anyone with recorded footage of Pete's public unmasking during Civil War would have known his ID immediately.

I maintain the truck hole!

But we don't know if anyone has the video footage and if so, if said people have watched it since. For all me know there's a ticking time bomb on JJJ's DVR.

Personally if I were writing Spider-Man, I'd use that as a massive plot point and to further hone in that magic requires pretty anal retentive wording.

Well, it was established at one point (I couldn't quote the issue number to you) that people remember Spider-Man publicly unmasking during Civil War. They just don't remember what the face was. So I'm pretty sure those DVRs have been checked!

I think working on post-OMD Spidey is just melting Dan Slott's formerly fine sense of continuity.

Agreed. Hell, between this and the DC relaunch I have a hard time knowing what the hell actually happened and what didn't in continuity.

Maybe it's a big blur over Spidey's face? But if that's the case how did the internet thing work? Maybe magic doesn't work on the internet? Quick Spidey - look up your marriage to MJ!

At least with jackal he can look back and go "Who did I clone Ben and Kaine from" and have some sort of record that can be traced back to Peter. I'm sure that we can find something that is plausible in that whole spider-cloning history that would jog his memory.

Of course Kaine remembers, right? And jackal had kaine under his control for a bit in Spider-Island. Maybe that's how?

Could be. But from how the whole thing was done in... whatever issue it was, only people inside the Magic Bubble (Pete and MJ) were supposed to remember the secret. Which means, in theory, Kaine wouldn't. Even though he could look in a mirror and... guh, brain hurty.

Yeah, the clones make this a headache. Which is the only reason I see jackal having a "get out of magic free" card.

"Why the hell do I have so many clones of Peter Parker and why do they all have Spider-Man's powers? I'm obviously missing something here!"

Haha I'm actually using the clones as part of my fan-wank for why Jackal can know. It's a pretty common trope in stories with mass effect magical spells that there's usually some kind of loop hole, so I'm just gonna go with someone having exact knowledge that Ben Reilly=Scarlet Spider/Spiderman for a time and Ben Reilly=Peter Parker clone makes them immune to the spell.
