Spider-Man #23 (1992)

“Revenge of the Sinister Six: Part Six, Confrontation”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Erik Larsen
Artist: Erik Larsen

Gog knocks out Ghost Rider and Hulk. Then the Fantastic Four show up. Then Nova and Solo show up. Then Deathlok shows up. Then Hulk and Ghost Rider wake up and they all get to fighting the bad guys. 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.

Spider-Man #22 (1992)

“Revenge of the Sinister Six: Part Five, The Sixth Member”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Erik Larsen
Artist: Erik Larsen

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.

Spider-Man #21 (1992)

“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.

Spider-Man #20 (1992)

“Revenge of the Sinister Six: Part Three, Showdown” & “Diabolique, Part 2”

Rating: 4/5

“Revenge of the Sinister Six: Part Three, Showdown”

Writer: Erik Larsen
Artist: Erik Larsen

Nova finds Spider-Man and wakes him up, but has to leave for an emergency. Some cyborg doesn’t like that the government is trying to build a cyborg army. Solo wants to kill the Sinister Six. Spider-Man creates web cannons for his wrists. Solo follows Spidey to the Sinister Six whereabouts. They fight the Sinister Six, but it is all an illusion by Mysterio. The real Sinister Six is safe in another room while Solo thinks he’s killed everybody and is about to put the final bullet in a writhing Doctor Octopus when he’s really about to shoot Spider-Man.

“Diabolique, Part 2”

Writer: Terry Kavanagh
Artist: Scott McDaniel

The statue turns into Diablo who fights Spider-Man using alchemy. Eventually, Spider-Man thinks he got away and leaves. Diablo just made himself invisible, but the cask he was after has now turned to dust in the time he had to wait.
