“The Demon and the Dead Man”
Writer: Gerry Conway
Artist: Sal Buscema
Hobgoblin frees Carrion while he’s being transported to The Vault (prison for super powered criminals). Peter realizes that hope for a cure for the Carrion virus is dim and he should finally tell Malcolm McBride’s mother that he was turned into a monster. Hobgoblin convinces Carrion that he’s a friend and they should ally against Spider-Man by showing him where his mother is. Their reunion is cut short when Spider-Man saves Malcolm’s mother from Carrion’s death touch. Spidey is caught off guard when Hobgoblin comes up behind him from a sewer and knocks him out. He takes Spidey back down with him and Carrion follows.
