In the middle of the Catskill Mountains, the Amazing Spider-Man and the Scarlet Spider get the shock of their lives. The Jackal is alive. Both men were there that fateful day at Shea Stadium when Professor Warren died. But here stands the devious Jackal in the flesh in his underground laboratory. And the Jackal is still doing what he does best. Creating clones and telling lies. When the Jackal declares that both heroes are actually clones, neither Peter nor Ben knows how to react. What a tangled web the Jackal weaves. Story concludes in SPIDER-MAN #56.
