“Spirits of Venom Part: Storm Shadows”

Rating: 5/5

Writer: Howard Mackie
Artist: Alex Saviuk

While carrying Hobgoblin to the police station, Spider-Man runs into Demogoblin and the Doppelganger. After a bit of a fight, Spidey and Hobgoblin land in a church. Johnny Blaze and Ghost Rider are walking sewer tunnels looking for Troll and Hag, so they don’t bring Deathwatch back to life. They run into Venom, who was following them and also wants to kill Troll and Hag. They meet up with said foes and fight a bunch of Deathspawn. Johnny Blaze blasts a hole in the ceiling and they go up to find Spider-Man, Hobgoblin, Demogoblin, and the Doppelganger in the basement of a church. They all fight the Deathspawn for a while and then the fight leads back down into the sewers. Continued in Spirits of Vengeance #5.

There’s lots of epic battling and eventually Sandman comes back as pieces of broken glass and nearly kills Doc Ock. Vulture and Hobgoblin get away. Sandman is turned back into his sandy self. MJ talks to the producers and decides not to take the part in the movie because they only wanted her for her body and not her acting abilities.

The Sinister Six test out the weapons they acquired in the other dimension. Then Dr. Octopus shatters Sandman (who he turned into a glass statue earlier) and they head off to take over a place called Hydra that has access to a bunch of weapons orbiting Earth. MJ got the part in the Arnold Schwarzenheimer movie with nude scenes and Peter’s angry about it, and MJ’s angry that he’s angry about it. Spider-Man then goes to Hydra to stop the Sinister Six and gathers Ghost Rider, The Hulk, and Sleepwalker on the way. They have a long fight and eventually Sleepwalker disappears because his alter ego is woken up. Ock then gets tired of the drawn out battle and releases the sixth member of their team: Gog.

“Revenge of the Sinister Six: Part Four, Dealing Arms”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Erik Larsen
Artist: Erik Larsen

As he’s about to shoot Spider-Man (who he thinks is Dr. Octopus thanks to Mysterio), Solo starts taking fire from behind. Turns out to be Cyborg X (who Spider-Man and Ghost Rider were fighting in the first issue) and he takes the injured and unconscious Spider-Man to a government care facility where they patch up his suit and give him a robotic cast on his arm. Spidey leaves and runs into Deathlok, who wants to help him in exchange for going to the place where Spidey got patched up. They go to the Sinister Six hideout and find a portal to another dimension. They go through and Deathlok estimates 143,000 alien life forms have died. They leave and the building blows up. They go back to the lab where Spidey was patched up but just find a big pile of rubble, a bunch of dead and injured scientists, and the Sinister Six. The Sinister Six leaves in an airship and Spidey tags it with a tracer. Spidey returns home and collapses on the floor. MJ freaks out.
