AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #51 Sees Spider-Goblin BRUTALLY Lay Waste To The Sinister Six - SPOILERS

Today's issue of Amazing Spider-Man is bound to be another controversial effort as the Spider-Goblin is unleashed on the Sinister Six, making short work of the web-slinger's oldest foes. Check it out...

The sins of Norman Osborn have returned to their rightful host, unleashing the Green Goblin on the world once more. Peter Parker had been planning for this eventuality and managed to corner Norman in his lab, where Spider-Man was able to even the playing field to get the upper hand.

Unfortunately, the Green Goblin had a trick up his own sleeve. When Peter had taken the sins of Norman Osborn into himself months ago, his twisted persona preserved itself via the Winker Device, brainwashing Peter to switch back to it when a code phrase is said.

Green Goblin activated the phrase and brought Spider-Goblin to the forefront of Peter's psyche. In today's Amazing Spider-Man #51, we see the Sinister Six plotting to take revenge on The Living Brain (which, in the previous issue, became The Walking Brain).

Kraven the Hunter tries to warn the Six of the threat Osborn's sins pose to them, only to be mocked by his teammates. With that, Doctor Octopus takes a call from Norman Osborn: he's sent in the Spider-Goblin to deal with the group and the former superhero makes short work of them. 

He easily disables Doc Ock before knocking him out, forces The Vulture to fly headfirst into a wall by bounding his arms, and turns Sandman to glass after tricking Electro into losing control of his powers.

Mysterio's attempt to distract Spidey with "The Avengers" fails and the Goblin proceeds to beat his head in. Kraven soon learns his magic spear is useless; Peter has been brainwashed and doesn't have Norman's sins in him, meaning there's no simple fix for this dilemma.

However, just as Spider-Goblin is about to crush Kraven's head, Ben Reilly, a.k.a. Chasm arrives and prepares to battle his clone. 

Elsewhere in Amazing Spider-Man #51, Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel figures out that Norman has been replaced by the Goblin. The Walking Brain,  meanwhile, visits J. Jonah Jameson to retrieve Otto's old arms, presumably because they have Peter's original brainwaves stored in them.

Not everyone will be happy seeing Spider-Man head down a villainous route, but this is only going to be temporary...we think! Writer Zeb Wells has taken some big swings with the series and that looks set to continue in the coming weeks and months. 

Check out highlights from Amazing Spider-Man #51 below.


THE SINISTER SIX IS BACK! As if the Green Goblin weren't enough, the Sinister Six has returned too!!! When it rains, it pours - and this rain is going to put Spider-Man into a world of hurt!

This is why we cant have Peter and MJ together. To tell great stories like this. There hasn't been a great Spidey run in forever. Superior Spider-man might have been the last even decent thing they did.
Batmangina - 6/5/2024, 6:22 PM
@AvalonX - Agreed. Superior Spider-Man was a happy accident that I thought would be standard dumb as [frick] Marvel and about six issues in, I was like...'wait a [frick]ing minute...Doc Ock as Spidey...this is actually really [frick]ing good...' the whole thing with the midget girlfriend and all of it being well paced and executed.

Then they brought it back and whored it out completely.
AvalonX - 6/5/2024, 7:28 PM
@Batmangina - I tried the mini-series and you're right. Its terrible. What they did with Ben Reilly was a sin too.
Batmangina - 6/5/2024, 9:02 PM
@AvalonX - Agreed again - the current Bitch Goblin and Demon Ben Reilly or whatever the [frick] it was they did makes the 90s Clone Saga look like Pulitzer material.

JJJ and Norman interacting and knowing Spidey's secret identity is [frick]ing stupid as well.
AvalonX - 6/5/2024, 9:55 PM
@Batmangina - The girl goblin was the most offensive when she made mind slaves of the OG Hobgoblin (who is my fav Spidey villain). Then they even retconned Ned Leeds again as an actual Hobgoblin and made him her bitch too.

Only thing worse than a girl goblin is a girl boss goblin. Then again, that all Spidey books are anymore. Hes always getting lectured by someone ...even Miles. The entire Mary Jane is mad at him thing was the absolute dumbest arc (if I can call it that) ever.
Batmangina - 6/5/2024, 10:04 PM
@AvalonX - Right there with ya - the first Spider-Verse gimmick was interesting but they've whored that out too - [frick]ing Spider-Gwen and every one of the variants getting a one shot or mini series. GTFO

I remember the OG Hobgoblin arc as a kid being [frick]ing riveting - that era of Spidey was so [frick]ing good and there was a moment where Amazing and Spectacular were both top shelf and Team Up was a decent enough third title that didn't feel like a totally watered down whoring of the characters.

Going back to my first recollection of the OG clone saga with Gerry Conway and Ross Andru (criminally underrated Spidey artist IMO) where the plotting and the cliffhangers actually had 7 year old me worried!
AvalonX - 6/5/2024, 10:12 PM
@Batmangina - I'm right with you. There was a time you had three flagship books when Web of Spider-man came out. That Amazing run when they introduced Hobgoblin with Kingpin and Rose leading up to gang war was the golden era. His relationship with Black Cat was complex, you had great villains like Puma, Kravens last hunt. The stories around Secret Wars 2 was pretty good too. Great time for Spidey. The Venom stuff in the beginning was cool but once it they started just making symbiotes everywhere, then clone sage and maxium carnage it fell apart. Never did recover imo.
Batmangina - 6/5/2024, 10:20 PM
@AvalonX - I did like (at least I THINK I remember liking) the JR JR stuff when he started really leaning into his own blocky style and some of the JMS stuff - it never hit the highs of the 70s and 80s stuff tho

I did like bits and pieces of the Bagley run in the 90s and some of the shitty 90s Twice a Month gimmicks have a bit of fond nostalgia for me now.

Once again, thank God for Hickman's Ultimate Spider-Man.
AnthonyVonGeek - 6/5/2024, 2:23 PM
I have a feeling that eventually they’re gonna turn Spider-Man into every major villain he’s fought. 🤦‍♂️

[frick] it, it's a neat enough one-off, even if lacking in originality.
