Synopsis for "Chapter Four: The Goblin Triumphant"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #800.

As Spider-Man web-swings away, the Red Goblin mockingly states they've done this dozens of times before and he's well aware that Peter is trying to lead him away from his friends and loved ones. Symbiote Spider-Man retorts that despite having the power of the Carnage symbiote, Norman is at his least effective - having set out to kill everyone Peter Parker ever loved and failed miserably at doing so. Affecting a singsong tone, the Red Goblin tells Symbiote Spider-Man that the spikes he'd been firing at everyone are under his control, and all along he's been planning to use them to shred the brains of those he impaled with them - killing them in an agonizing manner. Horrified that Norman would do something like that to his own son, Symbiote Spider-Man lunges at his nemesis as the Red Goblin gloats that he'll kill everyone Spider-Man ever cared about and that this will teach Spider-Man to stop messing with his stuff. The Red Goblin snaps his fingers... and is surprised when nothing happens.

Flash Thompson - the Anti-Venom symbiote barely covering him - lands on the roof of a nearby apartment and explains that he used almost all of the Anti-Venom to extract the spikes the Red Goblin left in everyone and heal them. Symbiote Spider-Man celebrates, then realizes Flash addressed him by his real name and asks how he found out. Flash remarks that he pieced it together after overhearing Spider-Man talking to Silk, asking if they're even for the times he bullied him. Symbiote Spider-Man responds that he forgave Flash a long time ago; but the Red Goblin interrupts, his Carnage Glider chomping down on Spider-Man's arm and flying away with him. The Red Goblin furiously attacks Flash for ruining his revenge, tackling him off the roof of the apartment. As they fall, Flash mocks him and tries to use the last of the Anti-Venom symbiote to burn away the Carnage symbiote; but the Red Goblin sneers that Flash might have been able to beat him if he hadn't used up the Anti-Venom symbiote healing his allies. Revealing that he's wearing his Green Goblin outfit under the symbiote, the Red Goblin pins Flash to the ground and electrocutes him with his finger blasters. Symbiote Spider-Man lets out a scream of rage and sprouts a fanged maw and prehensile tongue, Venomizing as he rips the Carnage Glider apart. As the berserk Spider-Venom dives towards him, the Red Goblin quips that he likes Peter's bulky new look and that he must be working out. Cratering the pavement as he lands, Spider-Venom snarls that he's going to kill Osborn and punches him - sending the Red Goblin flying across the city and smashing through several high rises. As Spider-Venom roars that he's going to eat Osborn's brains, Flash calls out to Peter and urges him to calm down and not let his rage infect the symbiote; stating that he helped the symbiote become good and Peter risks undoing that. As Flash begs Peter to not be the reason the symbiote becomes a bloodthirsty monster again, Spider-Venom reverts to his slender form; Symbiote Spider-Man apologizing for losing control and remarking that they need to get Flash to a hospital. Flash replies that there's no time, telling Peter that he doesn't have enough Anti-Venom left to heal himself. When Peter offers to return the Venom symbiote to him, Flash refuses out of fear that it would die as well and deprive Peter of the edge he needs. Informing Peter that his berserk punch sent the Red Goblin into the heart of the city, Flash tells Spider-Man that people need him; calling Peter his hero and his friend before dying from his injuries.

Crashing down into the middle of Times Square, the Red Goblin finds himself surrounded by confused and curious civilians, some of whom crowd around him for selfies under the assumption that he's an actor. A man in a Spider-Man costume approaches, mistaking Osborn for a rival performer and berating him, and the Red Goblin promptly impales him. As the Red Goblin cackles gleefully, Symbiote Spider-Man arrives, the Red Goblin noting that Spider-Man has gone quiet and stopped cracking jokes. He has the sudden epiphany that Spider-Man values the people of New York as much as his loved ones; unleashing an omnidirectional barrage of Carnage Bombs. Spider-Man tries to save as many people as he can, but several are still injured and killed by the explosions. As Times Square goes up in flames, Symbiote Spider-Man tells the police to stay back. The Red Goblin tackles him into the midst of the inferno and begins throttling him, sneering that Spider-Man is weak because of his unwillingness to unleash the Venom Symbiote’s bloodlust. As the Red Goblin gloats that Norman Osborn is finally victorious and that this will be his greatest moment of triumph, Spider-Man suddenly realizes what Norman's greatest weakness is: his ego. Capitalizing on this, he tells Osborn that everyone will know the Green Goblin wasn't the one who killed Spider-Man, but the Carnage symbiote, and by extension, Cletus Kasady. Horrified, Osborn imagines Cletus Kasady jubilant at getting the credit for having killed Spider-Man, and staggers backwards - clawing at his head and screaming at the voices to shut up and that he's in control.

Spider-Man seperates from the Venom symbiote and tells it to return to Eddie, assuring it that he'll be alright and telling it to be careful of the flames. Back in his red-and-blues, Spider-Man continues to mock the Red Goblin's reliance on the Carnage symbiote, stating that it's Osborn's move if he wants to win for himself. Osborn snaps and tears the Carnage symbiote off himself, shouting that he never needed it and that the Green Goblin is his real self and all he ever needed to kill Spider-Man. A nearby car explodes, knocking Spider-Man to the ground; and the Green Goblin triumphantly delivers a brutal beatdown, remarking that Peter was right and that it feels much more satisfying; gloating that he's always been superior to Spider-Man due to not relying on anyone but himself. Picking himself up, Spider-Man returns the beatdown; recalling all the loved ones he lost throughout the years, the friends and allies counting on him to win, and the soldier who sacrificed himself. As the Green Goblin collapses, Spider-Man says that he's not going to kill Osborn to avenge Flash, but web him up with a note pinned to him like he would a common crook. Osborn calls out to the Carnage symbiote to save him, but as it moves to rebond to him Spider-Man realizes that it's lost its invulnerability to fire. Grabbing a gas tank, he smashes it open and pours the gas on the symbiote, immolating it just as it touches Osborn's hand. Spider-Man picks himself up and calls out for Osborn to show himself, but Osborn's only response is to mumble gibberish with a broken smile. Spider-Man guesses he felt the Carnage symbiote's agony as it burnt to death, destroying his mind. Surveying the ruins of Times Square, Spider-Man remarks that he can't mark the battle down as a win given how many people lost their lives, but that at least it's over.

J. Jonah Jameson arrives and pulls out his pistol, taking aim at the Green Goblin's head and saying that Osborn's not fooling anyone with the act. Spider-Man tells him to stand down, but Jonah replies that Osborn will keep coming back and killing their loved ones unless someone puts him down for good, and that since the debacle is his fault he's going to be the one who ends it. Jonah pulls the trigger, but Spider-Man dives in front of the Green Goblin and takes the bullet in his shoulder. Johah asks why Spider-Man would go out of his way to save his worst enemy, and Spider-Man replies that he had the power and responsibility to save everyone, even his enemies. Dropping the gun, Jonah runs off in shame as the Green Goblin mutters gibberish to himself.

Synopsis for "Almost Solitary Confinement"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #800.

At Ravencroft, Colonel John Jameson tells Spider-Man that he's breaking a lot of rules letting him in the Institute; asking what happened to his arm. Spider-Man remarks that Jameson's father shot him, then asks for a moment alone with Norman Osborn. Alone, Spider-Man demands to know if Osborn is planning on telling anyone who he is under his mask. Initially confused, Osborn states in a sing-song tone that he knows who Spider-Man is under his mask: the world's biggest screwup... Norman Osborn. Bemused, Spider-Man asks who he is speaking to, and Osborn retorts that he's Cletus Kasady before breaking out in a fit of maniacal laughter. Walking away, Spider-Man notes that if this is an act then Osborn deserves an Oscar; but it looks like he paid the ultimate price for his ego.

Synopsis for "The Return of Harry Osborn"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #800.

At Alchemax's R&D lab, Liz Allan and Harry Lyman watch as Dr. Steve uses a sonic cascade to separate Normie Osborn from his portion of the Carnage symbiote. When Harry asks if she's going to destroy it, Liz says that she wants it securely contained and studied in case of any complications. Once the procedure is finished, Normie hugs his mother, who tells Mark to take their latest acquisition and make sure it's stored securely in someplace private.

Harry reunites with his mother and Stanley, forgiving her for abandoning him when he was a baby. Reclaiming the Osborn name, Harry states that he's going to make it mean something good and be the kind of father Norman never was for him, for both his sons. As he embraces Normie and says he loves him no matter what, Normie ominously replies that's good to know, tendrils of the Carnage symbiote spreading across his eye.

Synopsis for "Goodbye"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #800.

At Flash Thompson's funeral, his friends and comrades stand in attendance as Betty Brant reads a eulogy before calling Peter Parker up. Peter pays his respects, reminiscing about their early enmity before Flash had found a hero to look up to in Spider-Man and joined the military to make something better of himself. Peter remarks that he himself can be a bully - referencing his behavior as Spider-Man - and says that he'll try to follow Flash's example to better himself, saying he's Flash's number-one fan.

Aunt May approaches Peter after the service and gently scolds him for being so hard on himself, saying that she's proud of the person he's become. She tells him to patch his relationship with Jonah, and Peter tells Jonah that the weight of making a mistake and seeing innocents and loved ones die because of it is one that he's felt since he was fifteen. Peter tells Jonah that if Flash were there he'd forgive him, and that he forgives Jonah too. Before Jonah can respond, a siren goes off and Jonah tells Peter to stop standing around wasting time talking when he's needed elsewhere. Peter teases Jonah for admitting Spider-Man's necessary before running off. Grumbling to himself, Jonah gathers and folds Peter's discarded clothes before they get wrinkled, remarking that Peter is helpless without him.

As he swings over the city, Spider-Man thinks to himself that everyone is special in one way or another, and that no matter how many times you fall, you pick yourself back up and keep fighting the good fight.

Synopsis for "The Madness Of Mysterio!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man #66.

Mysterio has managed to break out of prison and is using his special effects prowess to prepare another plot to get revenge against Spider-Man. Meanwhile, Spidey recovers his clothes and camera left in the debris following his fight with the Vulture. The next day he tries to sell the pictures to Jameson. Furious that Parker "abandoned" him when he was supposed to be taking pictures of Spider-Man's battle with the Vulture, he throws Parker out of the building telling Peter that he doesn't need him to take pictures. However, when he gets the pictures some other photographer took for him of the battle, they are very poorly taken.

Short on money, Peter is forced to sell his motorcycle in order to have money. He then is shocked when he sees Mysterio boldly walking the streets before he vanishes in a wisp of smoke. Shortly he is met by Gwen Stacy who has come to make up with him now that she knows the truth about the Kingpin's control over her father. They run into Harry who is worried about his father Norman who has disappeared. Nobody can figure that Osborn has been hiding out because his Green Goblin persona is returning, as well as his memories of Peter Parker's secret identity.

Going to visit his Aunt May, he bursts in when he hears her cry out. He then sees that she was upset over a Mysterio appearing on television. Mysterio issues a challenge to Spider-Man to meet him to a fight to the finish or he will start destroying the cities bridges. Peter leaves his Aunt and changes into Spider-Man. He then goes to the first place that he fought Mysterio and the two are locked in a battle. During this fight, Spider-Man is knocked out by a blast. When he revives it appears that he has been shrunk down in size and put on the set of a miniature amusement park with a giant Mysterio looming over him.

Synopsis for 8th story

This story is a reprint of the comic
Venomized #2.

Symbiote Spider-Man abruptly punches Venom in the face, mockingly asking if he's supposed to believe Venom has nothing to do with this new symbiote invasion. As Hank McCoy tries to defuse the situation, Venom tells him to stand aside and prepares to attack Spider-Man. Annoyed, Magneto intervenes by levitating both Venom and Spider-Man and threatening to merge them together if they don't stand down and explain what's going on. Scott explains that they were trying to get to Earth before the Poisons attacked, and he and Venom explain that the Poisons assimilate symbiotes to transform into powerful monsters, consuming the host's bodies, powers, and memories in the process. Setting Venom and Spider-Man down, Magneto suggests simply removing the symbiotes, but Spider-Man reveals that he already tried and that his has been altered to be resistant to sonic vibration. Venom notes that this is a bad thing, since if an unbound Poison so much as touches them they're dead. Jimmy Hudson asks where Jean is, and Scott reveals that the Poisons consumed her. Recalling that the Poisons attacked the Xavier Institute and that the young mutants are in mortal danger, Magneto motions to alert Kitty of the threat, prepare a counterattack, and mourn the loss of their comrade. Venom notes he knows a place they can hole up, and that if nothing else they have experience with symbiotes.

On the Manhattan Bridge, D-Man and Rage try to help co-ordinate the evacuation of the city, assuring frightened civilians that there isn't a new Civil War going on. Poison Killer Thrill, Poison Gamora, Poison Hyperion, Poison Thing, Poison Captain Marvel arrive alongside a swarm of unbound Poisons; Poison Killer Thrill snidely assuring the "quivering fleshy little meat sacks" that her orders to only consume those with powers. Dismissing D-Man and Rage as mediocre hosts, she decides to chum the waters to draw out the Hive's primary targets, giving the order to attack the civilians. Rage and D-Man attack, demanding the Poisons get off of their planet, but Poison Killer Thrill and Poison Gamora easily subdue them. As an unbound Poison aims a symbiote gun at them, Poison Killer Thrill mockingly declares that the Prime Marvel Universe belongs to the Hive the moment the Poisons noticed it, and that if they want a piece of the pie they have to join the winning team.

At Alchemax, Kitty Pryde argues with Dr. Steve, saying that if he wants to run tests on her students to remove the symbiotes he'll have to do so out in the open. When he protests, she states she knows all about Alchemax's shady past as Oscorp and that just being here makes her skin crawl. Magneto shuts down further protests from Dr. Steve, who leaves to where Venom and Liz Allen are watching a manchine obtain and analyze a sample of Spider-Man's symbiote. As Dr. Steve gushes over the ingenuity behind the alterations made to the symbiote's biology, Spider-Man complains that he has no interest in being permanently bonded to another alien goo monster. Insulted, Venom snaps that the symbiote doesn't want to be bonded to Spider-Man either and that if it had a choice it'd get the hell away from him. As Spider-Man angrily tells Venom to get out of his face, Liz breaks up the argument and sternly tells them to postpone their fight for a day the city isn't being invaded by aliens. She notes that Dr. Steve's tests show fire and sonics to be ineffective at removing the altered symbiotes, and Dr. Steve reveals that Liz called in Agent Anti-Venom as soon as she heard symbiotes were involved. Venom immediately realizes they plan to use Flash to kill the symbiotes and snarls that there's no way he's going to stand back and let that happen given that the symbiotes are just as much the victims of this situation as their hosts. Before Venom can attack Agent Anti-Venom, Spider-Man intervenes and states that given what the Poisons and symbiotes can do to people they might not have a choice.

Onboard the Poisons' ship, Poison Thanos and Poison Doom watch as Cletus Kasady's new symbiote engulfs him, ignoring his demands that they remove it and bring him the Carnage symbiote. Poison Doom sneers that soon he will fully bond with the new symbiote and be consumed, rendering the Hive impervious to the original Carnage symbiote should it resurface as well as to any incarnations of Carnage they encounter in the future. Poison Thanos gloats that Earth-616 is overflowing with superpowered individuals to consume and that it is almost time to reap the symbiotes seeded in their first wave of attacks. The Poison Queen approches, asking if they have located the other anomaly - Kid Kaiju - and Poison Doom states that he and Poison Thanos dispatched a strike force to capture him. Poison Thanos adds that Poison Carnage will let them conquer Earth-616, but that once consumed Kid Kaiju's unique powers will give them the means to conquer entire galaxies.

On the Island of Mu, Poison Spider-Woman, Poison Groot, and Poison Whirlwind approach Kei Kawade's residence, where they are greeted by H.E.R.B.I.E. Delivering a profanity-laiden automated message from Elsa Bloodstone revealing that Kid Kaiju was evacuated the moment the attacks began, H.E.R.B.I.E. self-destructs the compound and kills all three Poisons. Crushing a piece of Poison Groot under one foot, Elsa Bloodstone declares victory, but is confronted by Poison Blade, Poison Werewolf-by-Night, and Poison Frankenstein's Monster. Poison Blade tells her that if she gives them Kid Kaiju's location they will make her transformation as painless as possible. Smirking, Elsa informs them that she gave Kei Mordred's Causeway and has no idea where he is, saying that he'll have gotten himself as far away from the Poisons as possible.

Kei Kawade emerges from Mordred's Causeway into an alley in New York City, apologizing to himself for not following Elsa's plan but declaring that if the Poisons have found a way to Earth-616 it's his duty to do everything he can to help. As he steps out into the street, a fleeing civilian tells him to get his family and flee the city because an alien invasion is underway.

On Manhattan Bridge, Rage and D-Man revel in the power of their new symbiotes; attacking Poison Killer Thrill, who mocks their obliviousness as to what's coming next. Captain America, Symbiote Falcon, Symbiote Nova, Symbiote Thor, Symbiote Hercules, and Ms Marvel arrive and join the fight; Killer Thrill noting that their trap has been sprung. She gives the order to consume the symbiote-bonded heroes and bond the others to symbiotes in order to prepare them for consumption. Unbound Poisons promptly consume D-Man and Rage, Captain America observing the transformation in horror. Realizing the Poisons' true goal, Nova panics and tries to rip his symbiote off by force, saying if they can't remove the symbiotes they need to get as far away from the Poisons as possible. To Symbiote Hercules' horror, Symbiote Thor is caught offguard by an unbound Poison and consumed, the newborn Poison Thor ordering the mere mortals of Earth to yield to their doom and rebirth.
