* {{Expy}}: The new Jackal is transparently patterned on TheJoker in both look and temperament. He never stops cracking wise, and his death scene is a literal pratfall.

The reasons for how complicated all the above ended up getting was in no small part part due to ExecutiveMeddling. While the writers originally had plans for where the StoryArc was supposed to play out, the editorial wing of Marvel repeatedly asked for the arc to be stretched out to encourage sales, so the writers gradually lost track of where they were actually going and ended up [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants Writing by the Seat of Their Pants]], introducing quite a few new characters and plot elements but with no clear idea of what to do with them. Fans and [[WriterRevolt writers]] united in an uproar, and an AuthorsSavingThrow was developed (there were a few built in there originally, but were never used as intended), revealing that Peter really was the original Spider-Man and the whole thing was orchestrated by ComicBook/NormanOsborn, '''also''' back from the dead. In the end, Ben Reilly died in a manner that [[TheUnreveal explicitly showed he was a clone]], the Green Goblin returns to being Spider-Man's archenemy, Kaine and the Clone Gwen [[LongBusTrip disappear again]], and Aunt May and Dr. Octopus '''''also''''' come back from the dead because [--mumble mumble--] Oh, and Mary Jane miscarries (or does she? Read ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'' for more details).

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: The alternate Spider-Man was already steaming mad about the clone fiasco, but when proof that he might be the clone and not the Scarlet Spider emerged, he was driven over the edge and prepared to kill his counterpart.
* OmnicidalManiac: The end result of binding a murderous Spider-Man with the deranged Carnage symbiote.
* PragmaticAdaptation: Since Peter never got with Gwen Stacy in this continuity, it's Mary Jane who gets cloned.
** Almost all of the clones and other characters are also written out as well, except for Ben Reilly who showed up for the interdimensional crossover.
* TakeThat: "This is starting to sound like a bad comic book plot."
