Amazing Spider-Man#50

All the cards are on the table. Kindred is Harry Osborn, but there's a few details we missed. Doctor Strange comments that Peter made a deal with a demonic entity, and didn't stop to process how it could come back to bite him one (is he talking about Osborn, the Sin Eater, or Mephisto?), the Order of the Web are overwhelmed by Kindred's demonic spirits, the total sum of every sin in the Marvel universe, and they become his minions, Cindy is up first, attacking Peter and Strange in the Sanctum.

Ravencroft is on the verge of collapse, Kafka finds Norman, who is now cleansed of all sin. Sin Eater has been retuned to hell by Kindred, to be consumed forever by the sins of his own crimes against an old partner that he killed.

In the letters pages, Nick Lowe says Ben Reily and Kane almost factored into "Last Remains", but we have to keep reading as to why they weren't. Lastly, he jokes that Mary Jane will 'never return', meaning of course it's right around the corner

My thoughts

And there we have it, a reveal everyone sussed from the start. While I still see some readers professing the Harry reveal is as much a fake-out as the Gwen or George Stacy teases, it's confirmed in the letters that, yes, they're going with Harry, meaning a whole decade of character development for the Oscorp heir is about to be uprooted...not that there was much of it anyway. Harry's lack of involvement has been a sticking point of the post-One More Day era since it's inception and this phase of Spidey history consistently deconstructs and adddresses many of the problems Brand New Day will be interesting how Spencer reconciles the Harry we've seen with the Harry we'll be getting to know does this even affect Normie's brother Stanley? Born after the events of OMD? Is he partially a demon too?

Pat Gleason's art is on point as usual, and gives a bright, splendour to a dark outing for all involved, you feel a lot of energy come off the page, it's a cartoon come to life, and feels like prime time excitement to be had on every page

I think post BND Harry is a clone created by Norman and Kindred is the real Harry who died in Spectacular Spiderman 200.
