AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #419 (1997): 1st Black Tarantula

By the time this came out, The Clone Saga was pretty much universally hated. Now it’s over. So why is Tom DeFalco still writing Spider-Man?

A month after Ben Reilly’s death, Spider-Man takes on a new villain: Black Tarantula. There’s another Rose, who debuted during Clone Saga (apparently), and he’s making a black market deal with this new villain. Rose has a henchwoman, Delilah. She’ll also be a recurring character. This is her meeting Black Tarantula…

Spider-Man gets involved, but nothing is resolved. Black Tarantula and Rose will be a part of this book for a while now.
