This is like a big expansion of the issue I just read. It’s interesting, apparently the Jackal’s motives against Spider-Man are revenge for the death of Gwen Stacy, whom the Jackal loved. That’s a twist I totally didn’t expect, but it’s really awesome.
There are a bunch of things that are different from the original comic, and there doesn’t seem to a real reason for it. Why do writers feel the need to try to change continuity? I understand the desire to come back to classic stories, to add to them, but why change things? Would it really be that difficult to work within the framework that’s already there?
I guess maybe this is better interpreted as another meeting between Spidey and the Punisher, somewhere in the middle of Amazing 129. That’s really the only way to make sense of it.
The clone hint at the end was dumb.
