The Peter clone was actually Warren’s lab assistant infected with the Peter version of the genetic virus. A new classmate of Peter’s followed him and found one of the viruses. It turns out to be Carrion’s. Spider-Man then accidentally finds him and they fight. The Carrion virus was Miles Warren’s DNA with special powers added.
