History

Formation

Madame Web's clairvoyance had her witness the torture and murder of Peter Parker by a bandage covered demon with a centipede. Following this act, the demon turned and exposited, aware that Julia was observing, and presenting a connection to the other spider heroes affiliated with Peter.[1] When the Sin-Eater and his army made their warpath across New York to target Norman Osborn, Julia approached Miles Morales and Ghost-Spider to talk with Peter about the significance of this. After he spoke with them, Julia then took a turn to tell Peter that Norman would kill again, and Sin-Eater removing that evil could save incalculable lives. However, Peter continued on as Spider-Man to Ravencroft Institute to save Norman Osborn and stop Sin-Eater.[2]

With his choice made, Julia stood in deliberation with Miles, Gwen, Spider-Woman, Spider-Girl, and Silk on stopping Peter from saving Norman. While they all understand the temptation, Julia argued that the visions each had where in they were with Peter at different locations and he died by Norman's hands. Given that the Web of Life and Destiny was sensing a great danger nearing Peter, it was moving them to intercede. Despite strong arguments, they reached a consensus and officially teamed up. When Miles asked about Julia's vision, she merely stated that it was "something worse" as they web-swung.[3]

War with Kindred

Psychically observing Ravenscroft's chaos from afar while biding time until the right moment, Gwen had a change of heart against interfering, wishing to respect Peter's choice. After a speech and asking for another vote, the new consensus was to allow Peter to best Sin-Eater, who was temporarily suspended in liquid concrete. The Order then intercepted Norman's attempted murder of Peter, and informed their friend of their mission upon rescue. Boarding Norman's escape pod, Norman's perverse hovering around Gwen and subsequent taunts triggered a rage in Peter, who threw Norman out for Sin-Eater to find. As the others were shocked by Peter's "different choice," Julia knew that was contrary having foreseen it, and stating it was too late to change it.[4]

Traversing the river's floor, the demons taken by Sin-Eater's many cleanses were made corporeal and had found them. As the pod was breached, Julia warned Spider-Man there was no stopping the next series of events. Reaching the surface on the Hudson River, the possessed six members attacked Spider-Man on Kindred's guidance as he taunted Peter through the mouths. Following a moment of physical torture on an already overworked Spider-Man, Kindred told Peter to find them later for a "surprise" before sending the Order to "exorcise his own demons." Later that night, The Order followed Peter to the Sanctum Sanctorum, where Doctor Strange was treating him.[5][6]
