Kindred's Role In Spider-Man's Sinister War, Confirmed

Bleeding Cool combined the announcement yesterday of July's Spider-Man event, Sinister War, with reading the end of yesterday's Amazing Spider-Man #64, to note that it appeared that Kindred, the Hell version of Harry Osborn that struggled its way from the pits to enact vengeance on Peter Parker, his friends and family, might be behind it all.

Today's Marvel Comics' July 2021 solicitations seem to underline that… as well as two issues of Sinister War and two issues of Amazing Spider-Man in the same month. And giving us the line "Two of the most deadly villain teams are fighting both Spidey and each other, but what is Kindred's role in all this?"
