spider-man reboot

A dark twist turns a friendly neighbor into a deadly threat in The Amazing Spider-Man with Zeb Wells and Ed McGuinness.

For decades, Spider-Man has been an iconic hero who takes care of the environment with his incredible sense of responsibility. However, in a shocking twist, Spider-Man emerges as “the world’s most dangerous superhuman” who can only be described as the “Laughing Spider-Man”. This dark transformation is chronicled in The Amazing Spider-Man #50 by Zeb Wells and Ed McGuinness, a story that reimagines the iconic character.

An unexpected call to Oscorp

Peter Parker, now a key figure at Oscorp, receives an urgent call about a living brain. As Spider-Man, he rushes to Oscorp headquarters despite being among his guards. There, a message from a living brain leads Peter to find a hidden room in Norman Osborn’s office with a classic goblin outfit.

Believing that Osborn has given up his life of villainy, Peter is dismayed to discover that Norman has reverted to villainy. The reason Peter agrees to work at Oscorp is to track down Norman, who has been purged of his evil self by Sin. However, instead of stopping the Green Goblin, Spidey finds himself in a very dark destiny.

Transform into Spider-Goblin

Tragically, the Green Goblin exposes Spider-Man to a poisonous gas that turns Osborn into a maniacal villain. But that’s only part of the equation. In an earlier plot, Osborn’s ‘sin’ was turned into a weapon by the Goblin Queen, which unleashed Spider-Man’s inner darkness, nearly killing Mary Jane’s new partner, Paul.

Although Spider-Man was able to overcome this influence, the remnants of Osborn’s identity remained in him. When exposed to the gas again and hearing a trigger phrase, Peter is completely defeated, becomes a spider-goblin, and poses a threat never seen before.

The cover of Amazing Spider-Man #53 shows Spider-Goblin in all his glory, calling him “the world’s most dangerous superhuman.” But what makes it dangerous? Although Spider-Man is highly intelligent and trusted by the Avengers and the Fantastic Four, and the Green Goblin is ruthless, the real threat lies in combining these traits to wreak havoc.


An inevitable threat

The mere existence of the Spider-Goblin raises a terrifying question: How will Peter Parker use his knowledge and connections as Spider-Man to fulfill the Green Goblin’s dark agenda? One possibility is that Spider-Goblin could use the trust placed in him to launch a surprise attack on Earth’s mightiest heroes to wreak unprecedented havoc.

Ultimately, Spider-Man fans will have to wait to see how this story plays out, but they can delve into the origins of ‘The Laughing Spider-Man’ in the current issue of the series. This comic marks a turning point for the characters, his legacy as both a hero and a villain.

This dramatic development in Arachnid’s story not only changes the perspective of the beloved hero, but also introduces new dynamics and conflicts to the Marvel Universe. Peter Parker’s evolution into the Spider-Goblin brings deep questions about the nature of power, influence, and morality.


Fans and critics alike will be watching to see how Marvel will resolve this dark chapter in the life of one of their most beloved heroes. Arachnid’s transformation into Spider-Goblin is not only a change of identity, but also an exploration of the boundaries between heroism and evil, and how these lines blur under dire circumstances.

The future of Spider-Goblin

Titled “The World’s Most Dangerous Superhuman,” Spider-Goblin has the potential to become one of the most terrifying threats in the Marvel Universe.
