Synopsis for "Last Remains: Part One"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 5) #50.

Part of Kindred's intentions are revealed when it is shown that he's pleased about Peter's action to throw Norman to the Sin-Eater. Kindred then digs up George and Gwen Stacy's remains to set them up at a dinner table he prepares. Norman meanwhile attempts to beg the Sin-Eater for mercy only to be met with stoic silence, finally bursting into maniacal laughter and telling Stanley to get it over with. Stanley shoots Norman dead, but upon summoning his master though, his call to Kindred turns sour as he betrays Stanley, accusing him of being a hypocrite. As Stanley states he paid for his sins in Hell, Kindred retorts that Stanley was content with suffering for other peoples' sins but refused to acknowledge his own: which was that Stanley killed his own partner, igniting his career as Sin-Eater. Kindred then maliciously kills Sin-Eater, taking on all the sins he had absorbed.

Kindred manifests the cumulative sins into a demonic entity and sends it after the Order of the Web. In the escape pod, Julia told Spider-Man that she saw these events coming together, and how neither she nor Peter can stop the evils to come. The demon possesses the Order to hunt and destroy Peter, who attempts to flee across New York. A battered Spider-Man staggers to the Sanctum Sanctorum attempting to get medical attention from Doctor Strange. Upon recovering, a downcast Peter tells Strange about something that had occurred, with the doctor being upset that Peter made a deal with a demon and didn't expect any consequences. Aiming to help rectify the evil, as Strange inquires about the Order, a demon-possessed Silk invades from the window directly above them.

As Norman revives under Ravencroft newly cleansed of his evil, after telling the guards he needs no help, Dr. Kafka views his now visible evidence of villainy as more than ample reason for her brand of help. While Sin-Eater's followers are arrested by the NYPD, Norman pleads for her to help him find Stanley's master, "Kindred", who aims to enact a worse event upon the city. Despite the clear presence of his crimes and the description of danger Norman made Kindred out to be, when Kafka asks to know his reasoning for saving such a person, Norman answers that Kindred is his son.

Synopsis for "Last Remains: Part Four"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 5) #53.

While Liz Allan sleeps, Kindred enters Normie's room and reminisces on his past, how as a boy he was able to sleep through even a thunderstorm. Seeing Normie doing the same, he pats the boy's head goodnight before returning to his tomb where he is keeping Peter's body.

Peter "awakens" in Aunt May's home, soon remembering the very day that it was: the surprise party for Harry's return from Europe at his penthouse. When Peter greets Flash, he sees Mary Jane across the way but is shushed quiet as Harry arrives to the party. As Peter tries going to Mary Jane, he is prevented by other guests obstructing his path, and is met by Harry introducing Lily Hollister. Just as Peter helplessly sees Mary Jane leave the party, Harry repeats what he said that day with a one-word difference this time: "You know the worst thing about Hell, fellas? The parties suck." Peter starts to realize what is happening, as Harry demands Peter repeat what he had said that day before he gave his toast: "Speak of the devil and he appears."

Kindred then brings Peter back to life, and tells him that he must've known the truth. Peter refuses to believe it. Kindred tells him to accept it because the two of them have work to do, because what's even more important than who Kindred is, is what he wants. Kindred removes the bandages over his face and Peter hears the line that haunted him years ago. Kindred is Harry Osborn. "Gotcha".

Synopsis for "Last Remains: Part Five"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 5) #54.

As Peter doesn't want to believe Harry is a monster, he tries talking him down but is attacked, as Harry aims to "stop" Peter. Finding Harry's motivation cliché, Peter is momentarily relieved he wasn't some all powerful demonic entity, and notes to his former friend how he is always the first suspect whenever something evil happens that wants Spider-Man dead. But Harry corrects Peter's misunderstanding: he doesn't want him dead but rather to understand something. He is no longer chained by his demons and issues with Norman, now a literal demon and aims to show Peter the absence of hope and light. Dressed as Kindred again, Harry kills and revives Peter numerous times, forcing him to relive his life with each flash of death.

After many kills and revivals, he shows Peter that dying is easy but the punishment in Hell is suffering your personal sins. Kindred rebukes Peter's claims about targeting his loved ones, all that was on Peter. Kindred revived Sin-Eater to end the Norman, but Peter chose to save him out of his "knowing" what was best. But upon Peter realizing the sins Norman had and his never stopping to be a threat, he instead chose to bury them by letting Norman be cleansed by Sin-Eater. From that act, the Spiders were possessed by Norman and Stanley's collected evil, and Peter tried making a bargain to avoid the facing the consequences. As Kindred narrates about Peter's hubris, he shows on his mirrors that Sin-Eater cleansed Morlun, lying in wait and ready to ambush the Spiders as they arrive at his cemetery.

A frantic Peter brings up their deal, to which Kindred notes that he had kept his end of the deal, that their arrival was an unintended consequence of Peter's actions and thus doesn't absolve him. Since they came for Peter, Kindred asks his confused old friend what else he did to bring unintended suffering onto others. Kindred urges the begging Peter to answer quickly, presenting on a large mirror display that Mary Jane is entering his cemetery.

Synopsis for "Last Remains: Part Six"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 5) #55.

Harry as Kindred narrates Peter's paradoxically being a "loner" but inspiring other Spider heroes, and reasoned that he made a "family;" so the demon presents them at the dinner table with Peter at the master seat. Harry doesn't want to stop as the Spiders are signs of Peter's described selfishness drawing in others to die. Gwen just demands he kill them if that's his aim, as none of them asked Peter's permission for the icon. Taking a moment to accept her distinction from his Gwen, Harry notes Peter's focus is still on Mary Jane entering the cemetery, who enters the tomb. She acknowledges she knows Harry's identity, and Peter in a protective rage breaks free to punch a hole straight through Harry's skull. He is caught as Harry readies to kill Peter again in front of Mary Jane to restate his power, but she remains calm and convinces Harry stop since he wanted dinner. He complies as she also convinces Peter to sit down as well, with a gleeful Harry removing his mask. Outside, Norman radios Fisk that Mary Jane got to Harry and readies Fisk's men around the building.

As Harry reminisces on fond times how each of them had dreams in their early university years, he brings up how Gwen's break up with Peter had Mary Jane being "done with him." Peter berates Harry as those times were full of heartbreak and drama, including Harry's drug problem, reminding him of the hospitalization when he overdosed. Harry shifts to his father as the Green Goblin that, as Peter's motive was protecting that secret, he was enraged that Peter made a unilateral choice. As with Norman's amnesia making him forget his time being the Goblin, Harry observes Peter's secret identity was renewed and chastises him that- instead of asking for psychiatric or familial aid- Peter just sent Norman on his way. To Harry, Peter's negligence left Norman free to bring Gwen's death and all the chaos in their lives thereafter. As Kindred readies to kill the other Spiders, Peter points out Harry wanted his confession but never got it, so he apologizes for whatever caused Harry to do this to himself.

As he attacks Peter, Mary Jane tells Harry that Peter doesn't remember, as he would if it saves everyone there, and tells him about her thinking of that night he originally died. She brings up his trust and friendship, still hoping there is any left. Yet Harry still believes Peter will hurt her, like he did that night, and wants to kill him. She apologizes for her own behavior in those days, asking forgiveness in whatever part she played, asking that he kill her instead since it will make Peter suffer more like he wanted. He reluctantly accepts and readies to kill Mary Jane, only for Norman to enter as Green Goblin stating that the choice isn't his. Harry is flustered to find Norman in his tomb, chastising Harry for not planning for his father's mystical countermeasures, and capitalizes on the surprise by throwing a pumpkin bomb to mortally wound Mary Jane.

Harry attacks his father, enraged Norman would try to kill someone he cared about again, as Norman signals Fisk to activate his trap. As the tomb quakes, a supernatural darkness engulfs the building and everyone inside, scarring Kindred. Peter holds the hurt Mary Jane in his arms, but she promises not to leave him anytime soon, as the two share a near kiss when the darkness fully takes the tomb.
