Today's Amazing Spider-Man #24 by Dan Slott, Christos Gage and Giuseppe Camuncoli is solicited thus:
A CLONE CONSPIRACY TIE-IN!
• Spider-Man has been through hell…
• The Jackal has taken his best shot, but Spider-Man doesn't need to face him alone.
• Discover who is joining Spider-Man in his battle!
Well, the cover might tell you. But it's not so much "joining" Spider-Man as replacing Spider-Man. Because this is Spider-Man's scene in the comic book, out today.
Which is basically a repeat of last week's Clone Conspiracy #5.
Instead, as the cover suggests, it's Ben Reilly Jackal vs Miles Warren Jackal. And an attempt to set the moral ground for the Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider series launching in May. By trying to find some difference between the motivation of both villains.
See, Ben Reilly was at least trying to do good. Before launching a worldwide zombie plague. Stomp, stomp, aaargh, there are some things mankind is not meant to know…
