Spectacular Spider-Man comic books issue 226
"The Final Verdict" The Trial of Peter Parker Part 4 of 4. Script by Tom DeFalco. Art by Sal Buscema (breakdowns) and Bill Sienkiewicz (finishes). Cover by Sal Buscema and Bill Sienkiewicz. Story continues from Spider-Man 60. The trial is over! Peter has been cleared of all charges; Ben is a free man; and Kaine is in police custody! Maybe now Mary Jane and her husband can get back to some semblance of a normal life! Unfortunately, their joy over Peter's exoneration is short-lived once MJ receives a phone call from Seward Trainer! The geneticist has new test results…that will change the lives of Peter, Ben, and Mary Jane…forever. Who really is the Spider-Clone? Cameo appearances by Joe Robertson, J. Jonah Jameson, Spidercide, and the Jackal. (Notes: Spectacular Spider-Man 226 was the most controversial issue of the second clone saga. The final 5 pages of the story were very distressing (in more ways than one) to long-time fans of the Amazing Spider-Man.) 32 pages. Cover price $1.50.
