First Appearance: The Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #1

There have been many Zodiac groups in the Marvel universe. Soon after the real Peter Parker takes control of his body and Parker Industries, PI starts to develop new technologies for S.H.I.E.L.D, which draws the attention of the newest incarnation of Zodiac, a criminal organization seemingly bent on world domination. The organization has different branches lead by a person who identifies under a specific Astrological sign.

Tropes that apply to this version of Zodiac:

  • Evil Mask: Many members, if not all, save for Scorpio, are under the control of mind control masks that rewrite the wearer's memories.
  • Mind Control: At least some of the members are not a part of the organization of their own volition.
  • Legacy Character: The Zodiac Organization as a whole has had many incarnations, usually whenever the members of one group are killed, the title is taken over by a new organization.
  • Nebulous Evil Organisation: They're big enough, and organized enough to go toe to toe with S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Rogues' Gallery Transplant: There have been several versions of the Zodiac organization. The first one got its start fighting The Avengers.
  • Take Over the World: Their apparent goal.
