Writers Dan Slott and Christos Gage are returning to the clone well that was tapped in the 1970’s and the 1990’s. . In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, they reveled the Dead No More storyline is going to have a subtitle called “The Clone Conspiracy. It suggests that the man in the mask is the Jackal. Instead of taking place in the Amazing title, it will be a standalone five issue mini-series. There will also be spin offs and yet another Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1. Here’s a quote from Slott about the series.
“The Jackal has always seemed to be obsessed with cloning Spider Man and Gwen. He’s had a very narrow focus,” Slott says. “That’s led to very interesting stories in the past, but you have to stop and think, if you’re The Jackal and you take science to the next level, what’s more important to you than just cloning Gwens and Peters? What does this character want, and what’s he going to do with this awesome science?”
