Maximum Clonage, Part Two: Spidey vs. Webby!

Last time, we saw the roots of Dr. Doom’s latest terrifying plot to take over the world by creating a reasonably stupid clone of Spider-Man. But what happens when it meets the genuine article?

And now, your Spidey Super Stories Moment of Joy for tonight:

 

 

 

 

 

 

To Be… CONCLUDED!

 

Of course, you can see how it all works out for yourselves in the pages of Spidey Super Stories #25, but come on: That’s like peeking at your present before Christmas!

  1. Spider-Clone has one advantage – he can read minds! (At least he can read Real Spider-Man’s mind.) Panel three: Spidey THINKS his dialogue; panel four: Clone responds to said dialogue.

  2. That or the spidey twin/clone is a dyed in the wool old school b-boy and knows he has to come “correct.”

  3. Based on these panels, I’d like to think this battle went on for days, with “Web-man” just randomly appearing, punching Spidey in the face, and running away again.

  4. That or the spidey twin/clone is a dyed in the wool old school b-boy and knows he has to come “correct.”

    I’d say that theory’s pretty well supported by the way he’s standing in that last panel. Clearly, he’s a b-boy, standin’ in his b-boy stance.

  5. Shameful confession: the more I look at it, the cooler the Evil Spidey’s outfit seems.

    This concerns me.

  6. From The Official Rulebook of Super Villainy: section II.7, “Clones of Heroes” -

    Rule A.5 – all villians cloned from heroes must have an alternate uniform from the hero, such as reversed-color schemes or inverted logos.

    Rule A.5.ii – in the event that a clone shall have an identical uniform or civilian dress, said clone (and all readers) shall believe that he is in fact the genuine hero.

    Rule A.5.iii – upon discovery, the clone shall be somehow marked (such as a facial scar or peculiar mannerism) so that his true status is known. (The Mirror Kirk Rule)

  7. I wish he stayed in continuity. Imagine a character who can actually see and read thought balloons – or editor footnotes, and act upon the information before it occurs in-panel.

  8. I think the “BOP” sound effect should be used with greater frequency in today’s comics.

  9. Does that evil clone give off an aura that makes the original Spidey dumber by the moment?

    Because Petey sure seemed to forget all about the concept of avoiding a punch there.

  10. “I am your EVIL mirror twin — Web-Man!”

    This is so much cooler than “Am I the real Peter Parker? I love Mary Jane, not Gwen, so I must be the real Peter Parker…”

  11. Did Web-Man hit Spidey twice in those last panels, or did he just hit him so hard the explosion lasted for two panels, even with all the talking? Cause if its the second one, damn.

  12. there is something magical about this. it didn’t really hit me til the “Correct” punch… bravo!

  13. The reversed Spidey-suit is very awesome. I kinda want to go out and buy a Marvel coloring book so I can color all sorts of heroes with reversed-outfit evil twin schemes to see if it always looks this cool(why isn’t there a RED Captain America?!).

  14. Instead of a Skrull invasion, the next big Marvel crossover should be a fight with their mind reading mirror clones. I’d buy that.

  15. “Instead of a Skrull invasion, the next big Marvel crossover should be a fight with their mind reading mirror clones. I’d buy that.”

    Isn’t that pretty much what Skrulls are?

  16. “Isn’t that pretty much what Skrulls are?”

    No. Skrulls lack the reverse costumes, thought bubble telepathy, and witty rejoinders like “Have some punch Spidey!”
