Marvel Comics and Amazing Spider-Man #74 Spoilers and Review follows.

Legacy ASM #875 Is Riddled With Surprises To End An Era!

The book has several variant covers below on top of the main cover above.

The book includes a storyline catch-up and creators credits page.

Well it turns out there are TWO Kindred; not just one.

It all has Mephisto’s stench on it; he gambles with Doctor Strange over Spider-Man’s soul it seems.

Well, Spider-Man has an ally in dealing with the Kindred…

…the “Goblin Prince” Harry Osborn as Mephisto has called him.

They fare well, but…

…through the fight it is revealed that…

…Kindred is the imagination figments brought to life by Mephisto (or something) that believed that they were the biological son and daughter of Norman Osborn and Gwen Stacy.

The battle culminates with Harry Osborn dying despite…

…soul being saved / returned after his dad bartered it to Mephisto many years ago.

Spider-Man is buried in debris and is saved by…

…Mary Jane Watson?!

The Kindred realize they have lost and will die too…

…as Mephisto will have no more use for them.

Doctor Strange is curious why Mephisto has shown an unusual interest in Peter Parker.

He sees through the devil’s lies; it appears he doesn’t fear Peter Parker, but his future daughter?!

The main story ends with Doctor Strange tell Mephisto…

…that he (and Marvel editorial) underestimated…

…the unbreakable love between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson.

The Pulse:

This extra-length issue, more than 3 times the size of a standard comic book, had a lot packed into it. It primarily ended the Kindred saga of that has been brewing since almost the debut issue of this series. The art of that opening story, which represented the bulk of the book, was solid despite the varying art teams. The story was a bit convoluted still with Kindred being a duo who were evil imagination figments, or something, working for the devil who fears Spider-Man’s future daughter? Anyhow, lots here to read and reread; despite some confusing bit the book still felt epic. It was an entertaining read. 7 out of 10.
