    So the Iron-Spiders are The Vulturions?

    If so, I wonder why there are three? And if so, which three of the four are they?
    Sugar Face? Honcho? Gripes? Pigeon?

    Nice use of long lost characters, if so. I think the Vulturions where only seen in the first three issues of Spider-Man and disappeared after Vulture laid the beatdown on them.

    Stacy B: I think the Scarlet Spiders were chasing after the Vulturions. It’s hard to tell without dialogue. I just hope they don’t end up being clones, though I’m sure they will be.

    I do not want to give major spoilers -as an opposition to the site’s name- but i would say Spidey will unmask -at least (in a sense)- one of the spiders and will recive a big shocker as well as the readers.

    I would strongly reccomend readers to grab #7 as soon as its out.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if all the scarlet spiders are clones of Peter, which gives plausible deniability to who is really under the mask, meaning Peter gets his life back and continue on with the OMD storyline.

    Or even, Clones of Ben Reilly, and therefore worthy of the title they bear…

    Peter Parker: “Oh my god, it’s… it’s…. MERV GRIFFIN!”
    Merv Griffen: “Sigh… Yeah.”

    A clone of a clone is worse than just a regular clone.

    “You always seem to have all the answers, Gyrich! What is your answer to – THAT?”

    “Our Wards are – CLONIES!”
