COMIC SPOTLIGHT: SINISTER WAR(2021) #1

DOCTOR OCTOPUS IS BACK! AND THE
SINISTER WAR HAS BEGUN! Ock’s got a new
Sinister Six and if you think he’s thought big in the past, think again. What Ock DOESN’T know is that the VULTURE has a sextet of his own: THE SAVAGE SIX! It’s an all-out WAR between two of the greatest villains in the Marvel Universe, and the only person they hate more than each other is SPIDER-MAN! Spidey’s in deep trouble with the toughest battle that he’s ever faced. Nick Spencer and Mark Bagley team up for this epic Spider-Man story quaranteed to shock readers everywhere!

The story starts off with Dr. Strange talking to Mephisto. He says something has been taking from someone.

Then we see Peter Parker and MJ on the red carpet where Peter says he is nervous despite being around cameras all the time.

We then see some shots of them taking pictures and Peter complementing her.

We learn that a man named Cage McKnight helped MJ get the lead for a film.

Although not a threat Peter feels like he knows this guy. We find out that he is Mysterio, but Peter doesn’t know yet. It looks like Peter is ready to propose to MJ tonight, but we get our first look at the Savage Six who plan to ruin the show.

Then we see a mysterious figure with a giant centipede on him in a prison like area and he attacks Mysterio or at least an older version.

MJ meets Peter in the stands to watch the show, but the Savage Six end up crashing the party.

Everyone starts fleeing and in the midst of the chaos Peter suits up into Spider-Man. Tarantula finds MJ and is about to attack her before Spider-Man webs and attacks him.

King Cobra comes in to help Tarantula. Then Rhino, Stegron, Vulture, and Scorpion join the fight too. Spider-Man is being held by Scorpion while Vulture is about to attack MJ before Cage McKnight aka Mysterio steps in.

Mysterio and Vulture get into a small fight because Vulture is mad at Mysterio for making fun of him in his new movie. Peter gets a second of relief as he sees his two villains fighting each other right before we see the og Sinister Six appear.

The Savage Six and the Sinister Six get into an all out war while Peter goes to MJ to protect her from Mysterio. MJ tells Peter that she knew McKnight was Mysterio and that he’s a changed man. They dodge an attack from Sandman and Rhino.

Mysterio reveals he knows the reason all of this is happening, we can assure he means Myphisto. Spidey tries to talk some sense into Doc Oc, but quickly gets shut down. Ock goes to Mysterio telling him that he’s hear to rescue him and that he has an opportunity for him.

Doc Oc wants Mysterio to rejoin the Six and hand over MJ. Mysterio takes MJ and disappears saying “the devil always gets his dues” right befor he leaves.

We then see the man with the centipede and Peter knows it’s Harry. Peter gets thrown and sees pictures of MJ, Mysterio, and Norman then he is attacked by a horde of his villains.

Then the chapter ends with Dr. Strange and Myphisto talking and Myphisto saying that Peter made some kind of deal with him due to certain circumstances. Myphisto challenges Strange to a little bit of gambling to change the deal that was made with Parker.
