First Appearance: Amazing Spider-Man #666
Tarantula is a mutated version of the surviving clone of Peter Parker who would become the modern Scarlet Spider. After the clone was killed by the Kravinoffs during the Grim Hunt, he was brought back to life by the Jackal in a mutated, spider-like form. After his resurrection, the Jackal experimented on him further, transforming him into the monstrous Tarantula! This clone was returned to his human form after being tossed into a tank of Anti-Venom during the Spider-Island event.
