Amazing Spider-Man #30 Includes a Massive Reveal About Spidey's New Villain

Amazing Spider-Man 30 feature Carnage

While the entire Marvel Universe has descended into Absolute Carnage over the past few months, that hasn't been the only problem on Peter Parker's plate. In Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's web-slinger has also been dealing with Kindred, a demonic new villain who resurrected Mysterio to do his bidding and seemingly has a personal connection to Spider-Man.

In this exclusive preview of Amazing Spider-Man #30, provided by Marvel to CBR, Kindred visits a few familiar faces in this Absolute Carnage tie-in issue. After cutting one of Mysterio's therapy sessions very short, he pays a visit to Norman Osborn, who he apparently knows quite well.

Even though Osborn was one of Spider-Man's greatest foes as the Green Goblin, he hasn't been feeling like himself since he briefly bonded with the Carnage symbiote to become the Red Goblin. However, this incident left him with the distinct impression that he was really serial killer Cletus Kasady, Carnage's regular host.

As this preview reveals, Kindred seems to know all of this and a whole lot more about Norman. While Kindred's true identity remains a mystery, the preview below offers a few clues about Kindred's dark history with Norman Osborn and his supervillain alter ego.
