Doctor Octopus and the Lizard ramped up their violence in DEAD NO MORE: CLONE CONSPIRACY #4, and the Gwen Stacy clone began to decay when Ock set wheels in motion to hurt his foe as much as possible.

Scorpio threatened to ruin Parker Industries in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #10, but our hero managed to temporarily beat him by sending him one year into the future in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #11.

Spidey double-dated with Deadpool in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #4, mixed it up with Mysterio in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #5, and suffered through the production of “Deadpool: The Movie” in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #6.

The Goblin King made it clear to Spider-Man in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #27 that he knew Octavius held the reins and not Peter. To hammer home his intentions, the villain shelled Otto’s island headquarters in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #28, while he targeted members of Peter’s friends and family, including Otto’s girlfriend, Anna. Mayor Jameson converted his Spider-Slayers into Goblin Slayers in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #29 and the Spider-Man of 2099 stepped in to save Otto from a particularly nasty Goblin King assault.

Peter’s spirit began to actively help Otto during the crisis in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #30, and when Octavius realized he couldn’t save the day and Anna’s life he allowed Peter to take control of his body once again and suit up as the one and only Spider-Man. The wallcrawler rushed into the fray in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #31 and took on the Goblin Knight, Menace, and finally the King himself, who he discovered to be Norman Osborn with plastic surgery.

Afterward, Morbius the Living Vampire turned up at the company, as well as the Lizard, in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #679.1.

The wallcrawler confronted a monstrous Norman Osborn with his teammates in AVENGERS #24, then blasted into space with the Human Torch in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #680 to tangle with Doc Ock’s octobots and zombie astronauts on an orbiting station. As its orbit decayed, the heroes moved to rescue the crew and themselves from the compromised station in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #681.
