Synopsis for 1st story
Arriving home in a fright, Miles finds Billie missing and his father on the floor all bloodied up. Jefferson realizes this is his real son, reflecting on the other's stance being a giveaway he failed to notice. When Rio arrives, Miles gets a text from a blocked number to head to Brooklyn Bridge within ten minutes, clearly from Selim. Reaching the spot, Selim calls out Miles in a failed stealth takedown attempt, holding Billie hostage in a web blanket. But when Selim monologues on leaving Billie alone in the world, his saying "our parents" has Miles realize there's a part of him in Selim, knowing holding a baby hostage is cowardly and suggesting he is weaker than Miles. Selim corrects him, stating his creation was to be stronger than Miles, but with his stabilization cure destroyed Selim now aims to prove he is better with what little time he has left.
The two Spider-Men fight light mad all atop Brooklyn Bridge until Miles starts to overwhelm Selim, but Mindspinner interrupts to help Selim and the two clone brothers attack their progenitor. As Miles struggles, Selim berates him for his concern for rescuing his baby sister and threatens to drop her to prove Miles and Billie's weakness. However, Shift returns and takes Billie from Selim, protecting her in sensing himself a big brother to her. An enraged Selim attacks Shift for his betrayal, but Mindspinner protects his kinder clone brother by stunning Selim, forcing the clone brothers. Miles is powerless to watch as Selim and Mindspinner fight and explode in the air above the bridge.
Miles turns to Shift, who returns the peacefully sleeping Billie to a grateful Miles, and shares his sympathies with Shift for losing his brothers. Now holding Billie and reflective on his melancholic focus after losing Uncle Aaron, Miles is grateful for the good he still has in his life and brings Shift with him in departure before the NYPD arrive. Trying to figure out how to help, Shift surprises Miles with a chemical mist release that artistically spray paints a mural of the two on a wall, and Miles assures Shift he'll find a way to save him with his resources. After Billie snot rockets Shift's mask, welcoming the clone to the Morales family as Miles playfully asks Billie if their parents are going to OK with a clone brother of Miles.
THE CLONE SAGA REACHES ITS CATACLYSMIC CONCLUSION!
• Selim was cloned and raised to be the perfect super-soldier for hire. Miles has trouble just getting to class on time.
• Selim’s scruples are also vastly different than Miles’… so Miles’ family is in horrific danger.
• YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THE MOST HEART-WRENCHING COMIC OF THE YEAR!
