To really learn what it is to be Spider-Man, Miles needs an archnemesis to call his own. In a terrifying new Venom, he might have found him. The sinister symbiote knows the truth about the spider that gave Miles his powers. When he slaughters a familiar face from Peter Parker's past who is investigating the new Spider-Man, he believes he has discovered who now wears the webbed mask. The monster is led to Miles' door - but in a case of mistaken identity, it is not the boy Venom seeks. It's his father. His dad's life in the balance, the fledgling web-slinger faces his greatest challenge yet: to overcome this horrific foe as his fragile secret comes ever closer to being exposed. With aid from Peter's former girlfriends, Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson, Miles confronts the dark side of the Parker legacy. And as his life is turned upside down once again, he learns that - for Spider-Man - with great power there also comes great tragedy.
