The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 1 217 (Story 2)The Double, Part Four: The Burial
Writer: J.M. DeMatteis
Penciler: Liam Sharp
Inker: Robin Riggs
Letterer: Joe Rosen
Colorist: John Kalisz
Originally published: October 1994

This story shows the clone’s realization that he is, in fact, a clone.

The biggest problem with the story is that it contradicts a scene in Amazing 151 where Spidey dumps the clone’s body into the incinerator. Here, the clone wakes up outside the incinerating plant. Also not explained is how Peter Parker could have thought his clone was dead and not realized he was simply unconscious.

There’s also this weirdness where the exact same panel is repeated:

This was good, and I probably would have given it 4.5 if it weren’t for the problems mentioned above.

A word on placement: I think I should have probably read this after Amazing 150, it would have made more sense there.
