Fred Van Lente and Barry Kitson bring us the secret origin of Mysterio -- who was Quentin Beck when it all began...and how was DR. STRANGE instrumental in making him the malevolent man he is today?!
Then, Frank Tieri and Eric Canete (ASM 611) take a look at what Hammerhead's up to during the gauntlet. With Spider-Man occupied fighting his re-vamped rogues gallery, Mr. Negative dispatches Hammerhead to take out his opposition...but who's side is Hammerhead really on?
All this, and Spider-Girl too in Web of Spider-Man #4, on sale in January!
