All that sustains me is the very willpower to keep my body moving. My nemesis might kill me, but I, too, have ended him. Perhaps now the world shall have a chance.Regardless, there is one matter that I must still attend to.I am a man of my word.So, I leave the world one last gift.The greatest gift DOOM could ever give the world.Man of Spiders… I leave everything in…..…..>CURRENTLYGwen looks at your group as you grab at your shoulder. The wound isn’t deep, but she took a decent amount of blood- your head is a bit dizzy. You grit your teeth.“How the hell?”>1/2
>>28681962“Oh, you didn’t realize it Peter? From the beginning, everything has proceeded according to my designs. The constant harassing of you, driving you single-mindedly towards DOOM’s fortress. Once I figured out where your destination would be, it wasn’t hard to use our helicopter once Jackal was well out of visual sight, by keeping low and taking a large arc, you’d never be aware of his faster approach, especially with your attention always being focused upon me.”She tucks her hair behind her ear. “Of course, I needed you to think I was desperate, too. So I let myself run a little ragged. I honestly was pretty close to death there after expelling that Decoy. It was a pretty risky expenditure. But, after several days without a good night’s sleep, the rest of your group would be frazzled enough to not pay too close of attention. “You, meanwhile, would be too focused upon your goal- going back to the past to even care.”She stretches with several audible cracks from her joints. “Still, all went according to my plan. So, I’ll show you a gift. She’s not as pretty as she once was, but years of torture and experimentation will do that to you.”She gestures at the Jackal who whistles as a large monstrous white cat monster appears with a roar, clawing at its head in agony.“It was hard to get her to listen until I placed a small bit of my cells to… persuade her. Even a beast will do as its told to avoid pain.”Your fists clench as you struggle to your feet. This is monstrous, horrible. You lock eyes with the beast, its green eyes look back at you.“Kill them.”You stare at it before it screams in agony again, clawing at the Jackal’s minions that are nearby before charging at your group. And then, as it is about to attack, it leaps over you- straight as CARNAGE, pouncing on her and trying to maul her.>2/3

>>28681992>>[X] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance with our Loki clone daughter
>>28682129Probably never got invented, I think Doom's been a lot busier than he ever expected...
>>28681969Man. For a psychopath, Gwen's pretty good at complex planning.
>>28682130Won't happen. Someone destroys it after we gone
>>28681969Thank what remains of Felicia and see if Alice is in any state to support her.Everyone else to the inner sanctum. Dok won't be able to come back, but she will probably be able to help operate the machine. Meanwhile, we can get Stella and possibly Omega back to the past with us.
>>28681992>>[ ] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance Bring everyone.
>>28682156Who? And are you really betting that carnage doesn't have a contingency at this point?
>>28682172No Fucking taking omega.
>>28681969>My Spider sense is tingling... 2- Know from where a threat is occurring and minutely how dangerous it is to you.So...about that? Did Carnage broke our spider sense ?
>>28681992>>[ ] Move to take CARNAGE downLet's end this.
>>28681992>[ ] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance, bring Stella
>>28682180The robot, Alice. Stella, a bomb? It doesn't matter anyways since universe will cease existing
>>28682187In a way of speaking. I'll explain soon enough.
>>28682187Carnage acquired an immunity to our spider-sense when it absorbed our blood. That's actually a net positive thing as the sheer danger it exudes will no longer cripple us.
>>28682130If we go to the past first then she can't follow. If I'm getting this version of time travel right, then this entire future would stop existing the moment we go back to the past.
>>28682227Um no, that's not how it works. Besides, we're opening the door to Doom's sanctum. I very much doubt Carnage is going to bother with the small fry when the prize is right there.
>>28682015>>28682031>>28682063>>28682079>>28682130>>28682195Man, what part of Carnage is INVINICIBLE NOW don't you guys understand?
>>28682258The part where that means that we lose reguardless of whether or not we run?
>>28681992>[x] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance
>>28681992>[X] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chanceDO NOT FUCKING FIGHT CARNAGEFELICIA IS HOLDING HER OFF SO WE CAN -SAVE HER-SHE'S BEEN BIDING HER TIME ALL THESE YEARS FOR THIS ONE MOMENTARE YOU IDIOTS GOING TO WASTE THAT SACRIFICE?FUCK
>>28682258so you're saying even galactus couldn't harm it?
>>28682274It doesn't, though. If we get back to the past, this timeline is destroyed.
>>28682283Maybe you should have a cup of tea. Or a glass of warm milk or something to calm you down.
>>28682283I say we don't waste it. I say we save her before any of this happens.
>>28682289I'm saying we don't stand a fucking CHANCE against it, even with our current allies. Maybe if we still had Agent Venom with us, sure, but, HE'S FUCKING DEAD. It would be suicide to try to fight Carnage right now, especially with the Jackal and all his minions RIGHT FUCKING THERE.
>>28682323Yes, or no can galactus harm it?
>>28682336What does Galactus have to do with anything?
>>28682336Galactus eats planets, yes, he can harm it. Unless Cosgrove rules that symbiotes are now more powerful than the power cosmic for some reason.
>>28681992>Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance
>>28682336Galactus is pretty gangster, he can do whatever he wants
>>28681992>Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance (Anyone goes with you?)Daughteru is our priority.
>>28681969>[ ] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance (Stella, Doktor)
>>28682336He's saying it would bond with and consume (more or less) Galactus. This partly relies on the Bid Dude's overconfidence and partly on the fact that Carnage now has Cell (from DBZ) level regeneration going for it. Or Buu level if you want a worst case scenario.
>>28682349>>28682351>>28682368So it's not invincible, therefore it's statement was either hyperbole or an outright lie.
>>28681992>[ ] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chance
>>28682349I said we shouldn't fight Carnage because it's fucking invincible now, and that anon took that as meaning COMPLETE INVULNERABILITY TO EVERYTHING EVER NOT EVEN THE BEYONDER COULD HURT IT. Where in this case it means that we couldn't reasonably do ANYTHING to harm carnage.
>>28682389>hurr durr the most powerful entity other than the Beyonder in Marvel can kill it that means we can tooFuck off.
>>28682389Cosmic being > random immortal alien thing
>>28682394Which is why half of us are voting to hold CARNAGE until the others get to the inner sanctum
>>28682389It was hyperbole, now stop being so fucking autistic about it.
>>28682407Can be hurt =/= invincible.
>>28682425Are you retardedThe entire point of this is to get US back there, since we're the only one who can change anything. Doktor existed back then and Stella's too young.Carnage is faster than us.There is no way we can beat her to the portal without Felicia holding her off.
>>28682436anon plz, take your autism else where
>>28681992>[X] Hurry to DOOM’s inner sanctums while you have the chanceTake Stella
>>28682475are you throwing a tantrum because you were proven wrong?
>>28682512As we lack the power cosmic or anything more powerful than our hands and feet, Carnage is for all intents and purposes completely invincible in this encounter. As we lack anything that can hurt it, it will shrug off anything we can possibly throw at it.Hence, to Spiderman, it is an invincible foe. Something he cannot beat at this point in time no matter what he does.
>>28682554Stella cold probably do some damage if we can hold it in place.
>>28682554Peter doesn't know that
>>28682588>If we can hold it in placeThat's a pretty big if. Not to mention that even if Stella scratches it, it will kill us shortly afterwards if we don't get the fuck out of dodge.
>>28682588>Stella cold probably do some damageDose she poses any cosmic power/sonic scream/flame-thrower right now?
>>28682588You realize that Carnage can do everything we can but better, right? How the fuck are we going to hold something like that down?
>>28682588Doubtful. She's an illusionist first and Carnage now has Logan Tier healing, well, above Logan tier with the exception of having the option to fight the angel of death for a chance at instant resurrection. Probably.
Ladies and Gentlemen I call a point of order! I entreat everyone, as I am certain that Cosgrove himself will weigh in at some point in the near future should this continue to escalate, to calm. There is bait being laid. There are comic book power levels being argued. There is someone in the background laughing at the "nerdrage" of others over blatantly mad statements. This will continue as long as we exists on 4chan and there is not we can do but try not to feed the trolls and try to get along.That said, I wonder what everyone's favorite Spider-Man story is? This is certainly not a lame attempt to steer the between update conversation to the narrative points of our favorite web head.
>>28682588How can we hold it in place? It's not like we have a containment device on hand and it is CARNAGE, so touching it doesn't really restrain it so much as get its attention and give it the opportunity to inflict massive damage on us.
>>28682588You forget that Carnage is not alone. She has the Jackel and his minions.Meanwhile, we have Alice, who is currently on the floor in agony, Omega, the Robunny, Doktor, who may or may notbe able to fight fight, Felecia, our feral catgirl girlfriend, and Stella, who woke up about three days ago.This is a fight we cannot win. We must go back into the portal, and undo the future that is Carnage.
>>28682656>favorite Spider-Man storyWell, its not a story but I like to read whatever Spiderman/Peter Parker have spaghetti-doping moments.
>>28682685>undo planet CarnageYou have far too much hope left in you anon.
You pause and look back. Felica…“I love you.”There’s still several Goons in the way as Something stabs into one. A white rabbit, stained in red cackles menacingly. “New Target Acquisition. Sights locked on: CARNAGE!”Its torso cracks open as it sheds its ‘skin‘, revealing guns and blades.You run past it as it gives a nod of acknowledgement. “Farewell, Fleshbags.”As the Jackal and his beats move to intercept, they’re shredded by bolts of plasma from behind you. “WORTHLESS CONSUMER MODELS!”It isn’t long before the doors shut behind you. The Doktor removes her coat, revealing three sets of arms- not of them unlike the other flesh-like sets is shiny and metallic, along with several hanging on the inside of coat. Moving as she works, she grabs one of them before disconnecting Alice’s arm and replacing it with a new arm.“Vell, here ve are. Omega can only buy us so much time, he iz on limited battery life, vich is vhy he vas deactivated until now.Ve have to get you back in time und stop-”“She freezes as the room lights up green as a figure on a throne in the distance stands up.“Halt. Who dares enter DOOM’s domain?!”His voice is old, more worn, but it is definitely evocative of Doctor DOOM. His hands are lit up with green energy that crackle with lightning.>[ ] Uh, it’s me.

>>28682736I enjoyed Spider-Island. My wife got it in her head that we should collect all the single issues including the tie ins when it was coming out. We're only missing a few issues and she kept them meticulously organized and chewed me out for putting them back in the wrong order.>>28682714Ultimate X-Men Ultimate Spidey crossovers were always so much fun. So much fun.
>>28682730>>28682814This and kneel, he's royalty after all
>>28682850I loved that Avengers tie-in with Frog-Man.
>>28682946please tell me there is more to this
>Just watches ASM2 trailer>Doc Ock and Vulture hintingYep. This looks like it'll be good. I hope it is.
>>28682946Hey anybody feeling like talking about ridicules villains?
>>28682985It pretty much conforms incoming Sinister Six in ASM 3/4
>>28682982That whole issue is pure gold.>>28682985Hints at Ock and the Vulture and Venom, actually shows Electro, Goblin, and Rhino.Sinister Six movie?
>>28682985I'm really worried about there being 3 villains in it. That was one of the big things i disliked about Spider Man 3
>>28682946I know of the character but haven't had the chance to read that one.Heh.I forget if they used him in Ultimate Spider-Man as one of the people always getting processed in the police station ranting about something meta.So, my favorite Spider-Man story was the death of Ben Reily in that one super sized halloween issue when Norman revealed he was still alive in the mid nineties. It had everything. Character death, paying off old storylines, the return of Peter Parker to the mask. And of course, the establishment of a long term arc, rescuing baby May...WHICH NEVER GOT FUCKING RESOLVED.That issue dropped when I was 12 or 13. I have been waiting and so fucking mad that they never found their baby.>>28682985SINISTER FUCKING SIXHow many Spidey Villains can be shoved in one film?
>>28683028I'm slowly starting to think that maybe it's not going to be so shitty
>>28683058>How many Spidey Villains can be shoved in one film?I would kill for Stilt-Man to appear in it. Just to throw that extra bit of ridiculousness into it.
>>28683051Rhino is definitely not full movie material and can be easily added on to any story. He is a goon for hire after all. And which Goblin?
>>28683087Holy crap! Four files above "Venom File" is "Morbius File"
>>28683130I am happy with the ASM seeding they're doing. Sony is going full tilt to use as much of the Spidey License as they have access too. Maybe Black Cat is hidden in this film too?
>>28683152I'm glad they're trying to make a whole thing out of it, but I'm worried they're trying to do too much in one go.
>>28683130Oh man....all the neogenic funtimes!Do you think could see Man-Spider in a movie?
>>28683110Throw in Paste Pot Pete and you'll have Peter just laughing. I hope after we stop Carnage in the present (whoever it may be) we have to tangle with Stilt Man...because the world will need a good laugh.
>>28683171If they actually do have plans for Morbius, it's too bad they don't have the rights to Blade.
>>28683180And I'm hoping that when we take Venom back to the past it annihilates its past self before Carnage ever gets spawned. A pipe dream I know.
>>28683152I don't know about hidden from the film but there is this http://screenrant.com/amazing-spider-man-2-black-cat-rumor-felicity-jones/
>>28683226We may have killed the Symbiot, it was a little vague, Stella thinks we're a hypocrite. Wasn't here when it happened to vote against it...I regret that now.
>>28683226The paradox will destroy the universe.
>>28683226>Wanting to kill Venom
>>28683275You did read the "pipe dream" bit, right?
>>28683275The universe is a tough old bird. She'll be around long after we're dead.
>>28683305It will cease to exist
>>28683266I hope that's not the case, all we did was pick [*]
>>28683324Don't be such a pessimist. I'm sure it'd still be around.
You wave, rather nervous. This guy kinda scared you before. Twenty years later, he’s still scary. “Um, it’s me, the Man of Spiders. Sorry for being late, I couldn’t catch a taxi for about twenty years.”He pauses for a second before waving a hand, your companions tense as you’re lit up with green light before it fades. DOOM nods, his cloak billowing around him as he moves.“There is no time to be wasted, Man of Spiders. Follow.”The four of you glance at each other before following him down a passageway. As he’s about to cross a threshold he pauses and begins chanting. Is that latin? Eventually, the threshold lights up with symbols before they begin dissolving.“There are precautions DOOM has set into place to see this place untouched.”He leads you through several such rooms before you enter another laboratory. It’s mostly empty except for a refined looking version of the time machine. There’s three other things here, though- a field surrounding a notebook and a vial, a large opened capsule, and beside that a form slumped against the wall- clad in a green cloak and metal armor. The Spitting Image of the DOOM ahead of you.DOOM ignores most of this to go towards the time machine. You feel Stella cling to you, she seems to be looking at the body. The Doktor is looking around with interest, while Alice is flexing her new arm reflexively, like a nervous tic.>[ ] We should hurry, ask if there’s anything you can do to help.>[ ] Check out the body>[ ] Check out the capsule>[ ] Check out the field with the vial>[ ] Talk to someone (write in)>[ ] Write in

>>28683294Venom (the symbiote) is the best villain/supporting character in the spider-centric side of marvel. I would rather off both surrogate parents and skip all the optional side quest than see Venom disappear before the character really got explored, but I am just so sick of Carnage.
>>28683356...so what we really did with the symbiot is unknown? Heh...hehehehehe...HAHAHAHAHAHAYes...YES

>>28683468I want to hear it from DOOM. not you
>>28683468She is a clone of asgardian god, and asgardian gods don't like when you clone them.
>>28683368So Doom died alone.
>>28683495No they do not.
>>28683495To be fair clone Thor went fucking nuts, so far Stella is quite stable.
>>28683495Actually she's a hybrid human-asgardian, so it ought to piss Valhalla off all the more.
>>28683495>>28683524So let's not poss them off
>>28683468>>28683488And so we shall once we ask him.>>28683495Technically that was Mythic Magical Thor. MCU is full on Kirby Clarks Third Law Aliens. No idea which Cosgrove is using, but Loki will just look at this as an opportunity as he does anything...probably...I hope...maybe not.She'd fit right in with the rest of his kids.
>>28683544>She'd fit right in with the rest of his kids.I guess?
>>28683536Isnt Thor's future kid half human?Plus if she proves strong enough theyll accept her
>>28683573It's not necessarily the CLONE they'll be pissed with.

>>28683568Where is the six legged horse?
>>28683627I guess that family portrait is just for the children Loki fathered, not mothered.
>>28683627Eight legged I believe. Which means it'd be in theme for us to ride it some time.
>>28683657Spider horse, spider horse...
>>28683657I do believe there was an arc coinciding with Thor Lord of Asgard when Asgard was floating above New York; and Spidey landed there and led a merry chase throughout the lands.
>>28683692Runs around with extra force...
Said by my wife when on pain killers for a problem the other day when she interrupted me ranting about spider-man. In an adorable sing song voice earned from working with small children all day."Spider-man Spider-man, does whatever a spider-man can. Does some shit, swings around, and he talks like a fucking clown-LOOK OUT, there goes the spider-man"
>>28683841That seems like her...Also, home from work and ready for PPQ.
>>28683841She sounds wonderful
>>28683871Hey now, she's married to Commuter, I know them both in real life. she needs infinite patience and snark to deal with him at times.
>>28683900What? i found it funnywasnt being sarcastic m8
>>28683916Oh, ok. There good peoples. Sarcasm is just hard to convey in text some times.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAlGGGVMsSMYou grimace. “DOOM, is there anything I can do to help?”DOOM pauses and shakes his head. “This body has had but one purpose. To protect this place and provide a charge to return you back to your time. Once this has begun, this body will be unable to do anything but open and maintain the portal long enough for you to return with what you will.”He gestures over at the field. “That contains the cure, along with notes, so that a new one may be prepared if ever needed. I have waited and prepared for this day to keep my word.”Behind the mask, the eyes close as it pained. “Please, let this body of DOOM’s complete its task, so that I may finally be at peace. Let nothing interrupt me, for things to go right, nothing can interfere in the process.”You glance over at the body laying there. To have died alone, yet to have gone this far to complete his promise…“How do I know what I can or cannot bring back?”DOOM chuckles. “You should be able to tell, Man of Spiders- your innate mystical connection will warn you.”Alice grabs at her head. “She’s coming.”You hear lightning channeling as DOOM grabs the controls. “I need time. Let nothing disturb me.”Alice’s visor lights up a crimson red. “There’s four incoming. One of them… It’s CARNAGE!”>[ ] You have a score to settle (*!)>[ ] Let Stella fight CARNAGE>[ ] Ler Alice Fight CARNAGE>[ ] Let the Doktor fight CARNAGE>[ ]Write in

>>28684087I keep suggesting it when it comes up....and I really hope Kaine intervenes in his vein covered black outfit with exposed hair.
>>28684057We can spend 2 to save ourselves if necessary. Keep it for now.
>>28684081Doom's a man of his fucking word
>>28684100Doom gives the world a future. He is VICTORIOUS
>>28683974So our spider sense will tingle if we try to bring anything that will cause a paradox.I love you spider sense, you're the best super power.
>>28684121Oh yeah, we still have that plot thread of the other person tailing the truck!
>>28684153>implying that person will show up and we missed our chance to see who it was by not following up on it
>>28684148It also apparently makes vampires immune to sunlight. What was that about, Carnage? What's the link there? Because you definitely implied that your new invulnerability was a result of gaining the Spider-Sense.
>>28684210It's mystical Spider Totem shit. It's possible that it has more uses than just precognition.
>>28684210>Well it did allow her to CATCH BULLETS. so yeah
>>28684210More drinking Peter's blood. getting Spider Sense was an added bonus
>>28684173Last minute saves are the bread and butter of big reveal characters. It'll go however Cosgrove likes it to go, ultimately. All the same, a man can dream. A man can dream.>>28684210Eh, the Red Symbiot being hurt by sunlight is new and interesting to me. It could have been imperfectly created by Richard Parker and needed to be fitted with Parker DNA uncorrupted to be completed. Gaining back lost Spider-Sense might be a perk for the Gwen/Gwen Clone body it may or may not have after some tinkering was done with her genes.
>>28684240Or that spider-sense and immortality are two separate and unconnected things, both of which she needed our DNA for.
>>28684148With the exception of any symbiotes that are immune to that ability.
>>28684210Hmm...Maybe she can use the warnings from the Spider Sense to utilize some method of sunlight immunity, that wouldn't work without precognition?
>>28684284For one part she needed our complete Parker DNA, for the other she needed our complete Spider DNA
>>28684290Hopefully that means using Venom keeps Gwenage from reading us with it, then.
>>28684284Then she sure phrased her statement weirdly. She said >“Finally, the Spider-sense is mine again. At last I am no longer limited, my fully body’s functionality has returned to me!”>She laughs enthusiastically spreading her arms as the sun illuminates her form from behind.>“I HAVE BECOME THE ULTIMATE BEING!”Implies that the spider-sense removes her limiters somehow. Not sure how it would, though.
>>28684312The symbiote never bonded to us, so it can't do anything about blocking spider sense...yet.
>>28684325Or that the spider-sense is an indicator that she is complete. It's the light on your TV that lets you know it's getting power.
>>28684034We can tell him ourselves when we get back.He won't know the lengths he would have gone to keep his word, but we will.
>>28684339It's bonding to us right now and she IS using OUR spider sense.
>>28684344Oh, that could be. Yeah, that makes sense. The clones don't have it, so it's probably the most complex and difficult to manifest power.
>>28684347We're getting down on our knees and give the ultimate bow for this. Words can't express this level of dedication and how grateful we are.
>>28684351Yes, but the symbiote likely needs time to understand how our spider sense works, so it probably won't be an option.
Reminder, we need to kick more villains in the face once we get back to our career.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysUnLO8zyX8Farewell Von Doom. You have been the greatest hero this world has ever known.
>>28684243WESKER!Also don't forget to do a blood sample when/if we get back to make sure Carnage didn't leave a little piece of itself in us when it stole our blood.And while we don't have time for a history lesson; we need to grab the materials and hop through ASAP to save over this future.
>>28684455DOOM...Had a hard life
>>28684503Ooh, good thinking
>>28684503Well can't we just have the symbiote purge traces in our bloodstream?
>>28684533Do you really want Venom interacting with Carnage bits in any capacity?
>>28684557No, Carnage would probably eat Venom alive, what with it being a vampiric symbiote and all.
>>28684557Venom gave birth to Carnage.
inb4 when we get backMINIMUM CARNAGE
>>28684586That depends on the universe. The Doktor says Carnage was a developed weapon, and we know Venom was created. Seems to imply they aren't self-replicable.
>>28684608I think Carnage was an experiment at replicating Venom, which just happened to have our pre-spider blood involved with it.
>>28684586Duh; and when have those two ever been anything but bad news when you put them in the same place?The last thing you want is for future Carnage to start influencing young Venom.>>28684503Yes; we need to grab some physical non-cure thing before we jump through if we haven't pocketed anything in order to obliterate this future from ever happening or existing in any capacity.
>>28684645No we don't. simply being there will be enough to stop it. Did you miss the whole "This future is the result of peter parker disappearing" thing? We go home, this place ceases to exist, it never exists.
>>28684645The cure counts for that, man.
“You three take care of the others. I’ve… I’ve got a score to settle.”The Doktor seems like she’s about to disagree, but Stella drags her off. You give her a nod as Alice’s fist clanches again and she too heads off as you head down to the original throne room you met DOOM in.The green lights are her but dimmer, giving a light illumination to the room. Gwen Stacy’s form is waiting. “So it was /you/ who came. I thought it might be…”She shakes her head. “Regardless. Let me guess, you want some answers? How things happened this way? How I can claim that I’m the ultimate being?”“No. I’ve already figured all of that out.”You extend a finger. “Firstly, it comes down to the origin of your powers. You got them from a super-soldier experiment. I’m betting Oscorp, probably the weaponized suit that my father worked on. It was probably based on his DNA. As you’re naturally incompatible, it gave you weaknesses. UV light from the sun damages cells, and you were undoubtedly damaged by it- unlike a normal person who can get cancer, you’re already one. It just kills you.”Gwen’s face stills from its smirk as you raise another finger. “That’s why the clones wouldn’t work for you. They’re naturally flawed from the cloning procedure, they lack something both physically and spiritually causing them to degenerate. They could maintain you, but they’re not able to fix you. Only -I- could do that.”Her face turns ugly as you raise another finger. >1/3
>>28684680You know that's Cosgrove's call. If he wants to retain characters and story elements for later use, he will. And you repeating that like a mantra isn't going to change anything.
>>28684680And then the Watcher turns it into an alternate dimension in the multiverse, just so he can watch it.
>>28684746“Thirdly, you’ve told me things that only Gwen might now, but they were flawed, imperfect. Either genetic memory carries actual memories in a clone or you’re possessing her body and its been resisting you- you’re true form was the red hideous ooze- you’re a symbiote. Or, rather, you became one. When on death’s door, fighting Gwen, you let her kill your original body, or nearly, and jumped ship to her.”A fourth finger. Her hands are clenching and unclenching. “However, that link, too was complete. As it wasn’t your body, you had filtered and distorted memories. You could manipulate her body, use her superhuman strengths and augment them but it lacked something. The Spider-sense- you couldn’t make the body truly your own unless you were completed, you needed me for that, too.”“As to how you tricked my spider-sense, that’s quite simple. You devoted your mind utterly to something, but its new, alien nature means you could deviate from that at the last second. As to how you snuck up on me, you probably sole devoted your thoughts to reaching the spot right behind me- not attacking me or anyone else. Just moving. It wouldn’t trigger my spider-sense until you reached there, where you quickly gained a new objective. “As for how you overloaded my spider-sense. You were actually intent on killing me in each and every way you thought of and devoted yourself to it until the very last second. As you’d been able to observe it from Gwen’s perspective, it probably wasn’t hard to think around a countermeasure over at least a decade, especially if you were able to utilize her intellect even a little.”Her face is like a Balkan stone carving of Satan as she looks at you, her hand clenching and unclenching. “So? Even -if- what you said is true, that doesn’t mean that you can beat me.”You shrug, unconcerned. >2/3
>>28684746SPIDY PUTTING THE CANCER IN IT PLACE
>>28684770“I’ve been buying time, honestly. However, an interesting note- you can’t trigger your own spider-sense. I figured that out when I punched myself- the body doesn’t recognize itself as a threat.”“SO? So -WHA-”Blood flies out of her mouth as something slams into her stomach from the shadows of the room with enough force to send her flying.>NEW MECHANIC- DRAMATIC PLOT TWIST>when a SP point is spent to foreshadow a plot encounter, instead of normal rules, we go to the ‘Cinematic Dice’ which means I need for rolls of 1d6- your total needs to beat your opponent’s to keep plot moving in your favor!
>>28684783So, you want a roll?
Rolled 5>>28684783GO GO GO
>>28684806WHAT A SHOCK
Rolled 5>>28684783Fuck you, wrenloft...
Rolled 5>>28684783Based Brilliant Spider-ManLet's get this show on the roll.
Rolled 3>>28684783Yeees. Let's rock. Also. I wasn't able to participate in the last thread, but it's implied we killed the Venom Symbiote. I really hope we didn't.
>>28684783Oh man, this was worth an SP alone. Brilliant
>>28684818Hey, we don't know if critical fails and successes carry over to dramatic dice. They probably don't, the probabilities of them get too high when you're only rolling 1d6.
>>28684806Fuck Wren. Get your shit together.
>>28684783Is this non 20 die subject to critical rules?
Rolled 5DON'T WORRYITS THE -TOTAL- ROLL THAT MATTERSWE GOT A 15
Rolled 2, 1, 2, 2 = 7>>28684783>>28684806>>28684809>>28684813>>28684815Peter's total:15, needs to overcome CARNAGE's plot momentum
>>28684783Wait, so what's our opponent's roll?
>>28684783You magnificent bastard Cos
>>28684806Your not allowed to roll anymore for rest of this thread.
>>28684833I don't know... ARE there critical failures in this?
Rolled 2>>28684783I so the sum of the first three rolls? Crits or no crits?
>>28684746>>28684770>>28684783>>28684806and then there's this guy
Guys, he said 'total', not 'best of'. So hopefully, that 1 won't count.
>>28684854Carnage has the worst die luck.
>>28684844Yeah, it just felt good to say. He's a good sport.
>>28684854Cosgrove, cinematic dice are cool. Also, I hope Peter gets a "Next you're going to say." Also, Doom totally gets added into the Broday with Flash.
>>28684854HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAWE WON, KEEP THE TRAIN MOVING
>>28684868It counted but he got carried by the rest of rollers.
>>28684854GET FUCKED GWENbest new mechanic in a quest goes to...
>>28684878YESPlease do this Cos. As a fellow fan of Jojo it would only make this more awesome.
>>28684899Not to nitpick, but do you mean frabjous?
>>28684770>“As for how you overloaded my spider-sense. You were actually intent on killing me in each and every way you thought of and devoted yourself to it until the very last second. As you’d been able to observe it from Gwen’s perspective, it probably wasn’t hard to think around a countermeasure over at least a decade, especially if you were able to utilize her intellect even a little.”That doesn't make a whole lot of sense... If Spider-Sense is based on intent instead of danger then we wouldn't get warnings from inanimate stuff, right?
>>28684915Yes, Yes I do. All the same, Spider-Man and Alice are about to show Carnage how to get Rekt, and maybe Gwen is going to give us a hand.
>>28684878If Carnage is cars, we are Joseph, except no arm lost.
>>28684925Peter doesnt know everything himself anon
>>28684925He just explained MJ.
>>28684925not if she ate a little Venom and we bonded with it and are controlling it remotely like a Las Plagas
>>28684925From what I'm reading, Carnage actually intended on killing us from that. It was a barrage of killing intent. It then focused that until a split second before when it changed it.
>>28684925It's not just intent, Carnage was literally going for the kill and then changed his mind at the last second.
>>28684942He doesn't know the actual identity, he just figured out the connection.
>>28684942So MJ just always still wants to hurt us a little.
>>28684960>>28684960Quoted the wrong section, oops...>“As to how you tricked my spider-sense, that’s quite simple. You devoted your mind utterly to something, but its new, alien nature means you could deviate from that at the last second. As to how you snuck up on me, you probably sole devoted your thoughts to reaching the spot right behind me- not attacking me or anyone else. Just moving. It wouldn’t trigger my spider-sense until you reached there, where you quickly gained a new objective.
>>28684947>Peter puts his arms behind his back and rocks back and forth on his heels as Gwen constantly explodes from the inside, reforms, and explodes again>"That's a good look for you "Gwen"."
>>28684925I think the idea is that Carnage is so alien in its thinking that it can completely devotes itself to its every action, to the point of rewriting its brain as needed. When it was hiding from us, it genuinely wasn't capable of being a threat, and couldn't trigger the spider-sense even passively. And when it wanted to kill us, that made it so dangerous that it completely blew out of the water anything we had ever felt before.
>>28684925>>28684981Let's say someone went to stab us, but then someone else stopped the knife. Our Spider-Sense would still go off at the knife stab even though someone else stopped it from getting to us.This is the same thing except the stabber and stopper are the same.
>>28684981She moved up behind him with harmless intentions. What, do you want to explain super spiders next? It's a work of fiction
>>28684974MJ probably wants to hurt everyone a little.
>>28685003Alright, I'm obviously the only one it doesn't make sense to and I'll stop thinking about it.
>>28684925The thing about inanimate objects is that they are -objectively- a danger. A falling tree can't be convinced to not fall or something that exudes radiation naturally can't be told 'hey, don't'However, say a crook who's about to fire on you sees his friends get taken down as you intimidate him to run. He triggers your spider-sense that he's going to shoot you until he decides not to. With things capable of free will, the Spider-sense only can tell what they're planning to an extent.
>>28685041Until Spider-Sense reaches full precog. Then it just gets silly.
>>28685041Makes sense. Thanks for taking the time.
>>28685023Where cape comics are concerned, that is probably for the best. Just look up the explanation that super man doesn't have super strength but inertia control online, it's a lovely paper that illustrates how little things are thought out ahead of time in the classic cape books.
>>28685023You're issue is that you're thinking intent is the only way to ping the sense when it's both intent and danger.
>>28685041So, how does this all apply to being banned from playing Poker with the Avengers?
>>28685052"You're about to say 'Oh no, it's spider-man,""OH NO, IT'S SPIDER-MAN! wait what?"
>>28685063Financial Danger is still Danger and Peter's Spider Sense picks up on that and tingles whenever he does something that risks that?
>>28685063Not every hero knows how to fool the spider-sense.
>>28685078Our Spidey Sense is looking out for our wallet? Man, Peter Parker Quest is just full of bros showing up in this arc.
>>28685063It's a general rule of thumb they have with playing poker. They don't know exactly how detailed the spider sense was so they didn't take a chance.>>28685078There was a time where his spider sense was raised to paralyzing levels and a box of doughnuts or something set it off because of the danger of heart disease.
>>28685063Their playing with the intent to hurt our wallet thus hurt us. Makes perfect sense.
>>28685118Was rather recent, in Superior Spider-Man. Remember it being in the Bugle, can't recall which chapter.
>>28685182Fuck, Phil Urich being there threw me off.
>>28685182dont do drugs spiderman
>>28685224He stared in a comic about it long ago.
>>28685224Captain America did drugs.And they turned him awesome.
>>28685253Look at what trying to recreate that Serum does to literally anyone else, though. Like this guy we're fighting right here.
>>28685266We've literally gooified her twice now and she's still a credible threat. Say what you will about the cellular degeneration and insanity, but she IS an effective weapon.
>15 vs. 7>Peter keeps Dramatic momentum!Gwen gets up, completely shocked. “How… HOW DID YOU ELUDE MY SPIDER-SENSE?!”You shake your head. “-Your- spider-sense? Don’t be ridiculous. What you’re using is ‘Peter Parker’s’ spider-sense. As such, things that would be a threat to ‘Peter Parker’ would be included. Unless something was to not be able to trigger that. For example. I’m sure -I- might be able to trigger it, but I’m sure a clone of me could trigger it, because the brain and its connection goes and assumes ‘I am Peter Parker, thus, that cannot be Peter Parker.’“Really, all you’ve managed to do is trick my power into thinking you’re me so you can use it. And assuming that you’ve focused yourself into being the flesh now, instead of being the symbiote -in- it, as you’ve fully integrated with the body as to use the Spider-sense, you’d fall prey to anything that had the condition ‘this is Peter Parker as well’ if it had been part of me as well that when you stole my blood.”Gwen staggers to her feet in confusion and rage. “WHAT DOES THAT -EVEN MEAN?!-”“It means you’ve fallen prey to -My- trap, CARNAGE. Everything from the moment you drank my blood to the moment you decided to encounter me here was part of my plan. It’s pretty dark here, isn’t it?Hard to see what lurks in the shadows.”Gwen’s eyes widen as she’s struck several more times, again and again. Each powerful blow you hear a -snap- before she lands. You hear the bones setting themselves as you take the amount of time into account. She stares up at you in comprehension as she’s hit several more times as you once again time it. There’s a slight delay, more miniscule, almost unnoticeable.Looking up, her eyes narrow abefore widening. “no, way. Impossible. I know that thing died! HOW IS -THAT THING- BEHIND YOU?!”You smirk over at her as you feel the presence behind in the shadows. “Wouldn’t you like to know?”>1d6
>>28684854Carnage inherited Parker Luck.., never should have taken our blood.
>>28685304No, a weapon implies that you can use it for your own purposes. This is more of a force of destruction.
Rolled 2>>28685325Fear the dice!
Rolled 2>>28685325Well, now.
>>28685336>>28685344>>28685345>>28685346Welp. Unless we can Spec point this we've lost our momentum. Guess we see what Carnage rolls first.
>>28685344STOP ROLLING WREN

>>28685371I meant 8, not 7. Silly of me. How I caluclate math?
>>28685363There was a one from wrenloft in our first set of rolls too, by my count the DC we're setting will be 20, so we should be good. Well, unless I've WILDLY misinterpreted how this works. Then we're HARD fucked.
Can we spec point a plot twist roll?
>>28685386FUCKCan we reroll with a point?
>>28685386Ruh roh shaggy

>>28685386Goodbye symbiote. We hardly knew you.We'll totally make it up to you in the past though.
>SP rerollY/n?Three minutes
>>28685412Can we use a spec point to also increase the roll, and if so is it at the same rates as a regular roll? (8 before, 4 after I think)
>>28685432YMight as well. Wren, sometimes you can really be on a roll, pun intended, but you have just rolled two 1s in a row. Please stop for a little.
>>28685430But seriously,mwhy do you think we're going to make it back to the past we left? This is, more likely then not, a decoy.
>>28685450Okay, I will not roll.
>SP spent>1d6, please. Total must beat 15.
Rolled 4>>28685492dice go!

Can we just like, vote for you to ignore all wrens future rolls cosgrove?
>>28685496WREN, STOP ROLLINGYOU JUST DOING THIS OUT OF SPITE YOU FUCKER
>>28685496Thanks for not rolling 1
Rolled 5>>28685536Would have been a 19 if Wren hadn't stuck his dice in.
>>28685496>Local man ruins everything>AGAIN
>>28685547But then we miss his last chance 20s
>>28685496I think you should wait until another quest to dump your low rolls, because you either roll high or roll low man.
>>28685547I can't vote for that. Sometimes he gets out a string of 20s when the chips are down. Our fury and frustration powers his dice.
>>28685547I vote yes
>>28685547No, remember a few threads ago he netted us 2 20s.Still, he should stop for a few rolls and accept lady luck is not with him tonight.
>>28685547But then he'll roll 20s. There was one thread where he had like 3 to 4 in a row.
>>28685545He'll pull through someday.
>>28685565Then he should just stick to d20s.
>>28685575The dice gods are fickle and eager to withdraw their blessings from those who would conjure them too often.
>>28685547No, there good times and bad times, wren sees a bad roll, just stop. Good rolls, keep going.
So, Cosgrove, just out of curiosity, is this why this issue is titled "Taking a STAND"? Because we're fighting a WRRRRY-ing vampire using Jojo levels of trickery and a super-powered companion we summoned? Because if it is, I have to say: I love you. This is amazing. All you'd need to do to make it perfect is reveal that we hid Venom inside of Alice's cybernetic arm, and it would be the best thing ever. Maybe throw in an ORA ORA ORA ORA to finish Carnage off before we dive through the portal, but I can live without it.
>>28685325I'm spending SP on any asterisk vote we encounter, it turns Peter into a fucking mastermind.
So it's starting to look like MJ is Carnage, or at minimum was the Carnage host?Though Gwenage being able to hate us to death doesn't really have anything to do with her being a spree killer, and while she had some of Gwen's memories, I don't think she demonstrated any knowledge of being the Maximum Carnage killer beyond what you'd hear on the news.
None of this makes any fucking sense. It's just two spiderfuckers with alien goosuits trying to out-keikaku eachother.
>>28685325(Venom) Animated corpse of DOOM?
>>28685678Yeah. Turns out Cosgrove knows a lot more about what's going on than I do. Who knew?
>>28685678Remember this one:>[ ]…Sure, Aunt may. (****)We probably went hard mode and made MJ Carnage.
>>28685696How so? Because she tricks our spider sense?It could just as easily be the actual Carnage, whatshisname.
>>28685697Welcome to american cape comics and shonen animu.
>>28685705We didn't have four SP to spend though...
>>28685705I'm pretty sure we just rolled for MJ's backstory.If we got a really good roll, then we'd be best friends and MJ would be the Spectacular version aka Best Girl.But since we rolled really low, we got hikkikomori serial murderer.
>>28685678You stand before the counter, trying to decide which game to buy Stella for Christmas:>[ ] Pokemon A (*)>[ ] Pokemon B (*)
>>28685697We just entered the "author's brilliant reveal" section of the arc. Makes sense within the genre of the quest.
>>28685697Where is the confusion? That is literally how Venom always works, it doesn't ping Pete's spider sense because it bonded with Pete, and Carnage is also a symbiote that "bonded" with Pete.It's three Pete's wailing on each other.
>>28685728It's a trap. She's not going to like either one of them because they're so primitive compared to the games of 2035.
>>28685728Bwe're not taking her
>>28685728Pokemon Cit has ALL the legendaries
>>28685749Yes, yes we are.
>>28685749Let our spider sense be the judge of that.
>>28685749I thought it was pretty obvious we wereCry more faggot
>>28685749>>28685761Let's see how things are when we're leaving before deciding either way.
>>28685747Yeah>>28685749Go fuck yourself
>>28685749What in-character reason is there not to?
>>28685749My ass. We're bringing her along.
>>28685749Unless our spidey sense tingles, we totally are.
>>28685728Clearly we just grow her an actual pokemon. She need to learn responsibility by taking care of a stupidly dangerous pet.
>>28685728That reminds me, we're taking Stella with us.It doesn't matter how pissed off it does or doesn't make those Norse jackasses that we have no in-character knowledge of, or any logistic problems of where she'll live.We're her moral guardian, and since Carnage is finished, I don't think she'll be sacrificing herself to save us any time soon.Also I don't see her having much reason to stay in the bad future, given that the only people left are people she doesn't like, and we don't know of any civilians for her to protect.
>>28685761>>28685767>>28685772>>28685775>>28685776>>28685779>>28685789Don't fuck with our daughteru.
>>28685728>PokemonDo we really want to teach her that the enslavement and forced dogfighting of intelligent creatures is ok?
>>28685789She won't stay, she'd cease to exist. Just like everything else in this shithole.But fine, piss off the gods.
>>28685763>>28685779Even if it tingles a little, I'd still be cool with bringing her along.Like so what if it'll make things a bit harder on us? Worth giving the girl a future worth living in.Only leave her if we get full klaxons Ragnarok alert.
>>28685803...don't be those PETA faggots.
>>28685803We'll give her the PETA version
>>28685806So you think she'll be erased from existence, and you're cool with that?You think a LOKI is just going to fade from reality and not cling to existence fueled by her betrayal and abandonment issues, which we'll cause?
>>28685821Where you play team Plasma?
>>28685803Make her watch the show with Harry, you know he has all the season on BluRay, to give her context of how it is working with partners.
>>28685836Yes. Because it's not loki, it's some clone, and while it's not as powerful it's still enough to piss them off, and bringing angry gods to our city isn't going to help it.
>>28685840>"Pokemon Peter? PLEASE."
>>28685840>Stella uses Take-Down! >It was super-effective!
>>28685852You're calling her an 'it'.Yeah I'm done treating you as someone worth talking to.
>>28685852The angry gods are already coming considering what we know, we could really use a non-angry version of one of the gods to help with that.
>>28685856>Peter gives Harry a look.>Harry laughs, "Come on Peter why would I have...">"You have a live size reproduction of a master ball.">"Saturday work for her?"
"Hey DOOMman. Open the blinds. I want the neighbors to see this ruse."

Rolled 17 + 8>>28685852Loki is actually a pretty cool dude. He might show up and be "the fuck!?" But I'm willing to bet he'd find the whole thing hilarious."So you're telling me everyone was dead, and an immortal monster was terrorizing the survivors. And they decided that the last hope for mankind is a clone of me? Oh, you humans.I applause your taste though."
>>28685789"Hey Fel! guess who i just brought from the future!my daughter!"Felicia became ecstatic for a moment then turned into a questionable look"don't you mean our?""Well its not your daugh- WAIT! NO! FEL I CAN EXPLAIN"
>>28685899I will never figure out spoilders, it seems.
>>28685899Sister.She's too apparently old and mature to be our daughter.
>>28685852We still don't have proof it was Loki. We can honestly say we don't know which asgardian her DNA was taken from. And Thor's biggest beef with the Ragnarok incident was the lies and murders. Cloning was bad, but creating a flawed clone with no morals was worse. Stella has morals and isn't masquerading as an existing Asgardian, so their ire shouldn't be that great.
>>28685913"Aunt May, I'd like you to meet my daughter.""Peter, she's 12.""Long story."
>>28685917It should just be the word spoiler, no 's'.

>>28685876Why specify that it's life size? It's a pokeball, they fit in your hand. The weird thing would be if he had one that wasn't life size. A twenty foot tall one, or one so tiny he has to keep it on a microscope slide, either one would be really unsettling for him to own.

When you go to board the bus, it goes to wait for you on the roof. It doesn’t take you long to realize, but after wearing it the first time, it doesn’t trigger your Spider-sense anymore. If that’s the case, then maybe you might have a plan. The symbiote agrees to you, silently, agreeing to act as an extension of your will in this scheme.As night approaches, it goes to hide underneath the wheels as to not be seen.------As you get off the truck you feel it attach to you, informing you. You don’t react outwardly, but know the truth now- all that remains is to not show your hand yet. To be able to avenge Flash, you can’t blow this!-----Gwen scrambles to her feet as she continues to cough up blood again and again as you beat her down. And you listen and calculate the healing- the worse the damage, the harder it is to heal, the longer it will take.As you have Venom lay another set of barrages on her from the shadow, again and again, you see CARNAGE’s arm clench into a fist as she vomits up blood again, wiping it from her jaw, furious.“You think you’re all that? That you’re the only one able to manipulate a symbiote?!”Sbhe stops down into the puddle of blood as it rises into a red parody of Venom behind you as it forms a few. No, dozens, no HUNDREDS of weapon-like projections.“I’ll just need to hit ONCE, Peter. Once I hit you, you’re done for!”>1/2
>>28685976I think he meant precise and exact dimensions.
>>28685989She launches them, ever projectile at once. However, she still hasn’t adjusted from adapting from being inhuman to human as your Spider-sense pings each and every one as the Venom symbiote responds to your will, knocking each and every one back at her before they can even touch her. You spend all day on this plan and all she‘s doing is mimicking you- More importantly there there’s no doubt or dissention here- both you and the symbiote have one goal.Stop CARNGE from -ever- being.As she stares in disbelief, the symbiote pummels her prone form powerfully, as you hear -every- bone I her body break as the symbiote behind her crumples in response to the agony she’s been dealt.You have a few ideas on how to take her down.>[ ] Take her head off and send her body flying- she won’t be able to do anything.>[ ] pummel her again and again until she too weak to heal>[ ] Send her -FLYING- so far she won’t be able to catch up>[ ] Have Venom immobilize her while you separate and retreat>[ ] Write in>1d6

I love you, Cosgrove. I love you so much. Anyway, let's beat her into submission and leave Venom to keep her tied down while we dive into the portal. We need to separate from it, anyhow. The symbiote would understand that it can't go through the portal with us, having been bonded to us for this length of time.
>>28686094>We get 24>Carnage gets 4>We launch Carnage into space, where it eventually stops thinking.
>>28686087It's amorphous. Beheading it would be as lethal as beheading and earthworm. Inconvenient, but not lethal. The only thing that will win this is broad systemic, structural, and cellular damage. Break every solid part of the body. Pulp every soft part. Burn what's left in fire or acid or alcohol. Purge it completely.
>>28686121Carnage was thrown into space by the Sentry once and torn in half.He came back.
>>28686161that's because he didn't throw it into the sun.
>>28686161He should have sent it into a black hole
>>28686149Not necessarily. Cosgrove's narrative implies CARNAGE has fully anchored itself to Gwen's body. It might work.
>>28686181I wish somebody would. I'm sick of the character and wish it had stayed in the 90's dark age that spawned it.

She tires, again and again to get up, but you continue to pummel her. The sounds of bones breaking and healing has become a constant sound over the past ten minutes.However, all that you’ve managed to do is slow down the healing to a ten second delay. You don’t know how long this will take and you can’t have her adapting to a new plan, so there’s only one thing to do. Something sickening and desperate. You have Venom pummel her again with a barrage of blows as you ready it into a blade as she goes flying back, you sever her head from her body as Venom knocks her body flying though the doors behind her out into the day. Her head crumples to the ground. As it wriggles.“Next you’ll say ‘Was this all part fo your plan, Peter?”You see the CARNAGE try to move, remnants of the symbiote forming as her head looks at her, eyes widening in realization. “Was this all- WAS THIS ALL PART OF YOUR PLAN, PETER?!”She hisses at you as red tendrils extend from her neck.“DAMN YOU, PETER. I WILL NOT DIE LIKE THIS!”>1/2
>>28686807It seems like she’s going to charge for you. You ready Venom to intercept as a figure stumbles between the two of you.

You don’t belong here.”She hugs CARNAGE’s head to her torso as she staggers backwards and collapses back into DOOM’s throne.

>>28686899Ya I didn't expect it to be so one sided, the people arguing not to bring her have been more vocal in the past.
>>28686877THISthink how much future tech the Doktor knows. She can literally build us robot spider suits
>>28686820>[X] Head off, its time to go. (With Stella)I love how quickly everyone went from don't want to deal with this shit to imoutou/daughteru get.
>>286868951s aside yes, grab the notes and cure. We came this far to not fuck it up now.
>>28686910Yes we can since she's over 20.>>28686820No matter what, we get the cure right?
>>28686820>[ ] Head off, it's time to go (With Stella)
>>28686927Yeah that seems fair.Also can we be smug a bit with "and you wanted me to destroy the symbiote"
>>28686933Do not want wacky sociopath nazi doctor, also make sue we secure the notes and cure for christs sake
>>28686928Vocal minorities are more odious the smaller they are, as a general rule.
>>28686820>[ ] Head off, its time to go. (with Doktor)>[ ] Head off, its time to go. (With Stella)>The stuff DOOM left to us>Finish with a line of hope/ thanks
>>28686948And, for the 3rd or 4th time I agree with these sentiments.
>>28686820 #>Head off, its time to go. (With Stella)We're saving our little sister.
>>28686927We can ask her on the way as we flee perhaps?
>>28686807>>28686820>huh, forgot to put this here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qx4tM7z3bhs
>>28686877as long as the doktor is young enough to not cause a paradox lets do this
>>28687018Spider-sense would warn us as DOOM mentioned.
>>28686997>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qx4tM7z3bhsWHY SO LATE
>>28686820>[X] Head off, its time to go. (With Stella)Doktor probably exists in the past, meaning bad things happen if we go back with her
>>28686820>>[ ] Head off, its time to go. (with Doktor)>>[ ] Head off, its time to go. (With Stella)I may dislike her, but damn if she didn't help us get here. If it doesn't blow up the universe, she can come with.
>>28686820With Stella"Hey Dok, any chance I can look you up when I get back to the past?"
>>28686820take both, we need the doktor to help us make shit to keep the symbiote under control
>>28686820[write in] "NO ONE DIES!" grab the head, kick it outside and get Alice to stop that stupid bomb. We're spider man damn it. People don't sacrifice their lives for us without us putting up a fight about it
>>28687057She can be a founding member of Parker Solutions.Captcha: Sacred Based TM
>>28687073Eh, it's fine.It's either that or MJ regains Carnage, and who wants that?
Rolled 7>>28687073But if we do that then we won't have any Parker PSTD later.Then again, I can't wait until we see flash
>>28687073Alice is going to stop existing anyway once we get back and defeat Carnage. keeping her from killing herself is just wasting time.
>>28687073Suck the fuck up.WE CWNT BRING HER BACkSHE MJ, FUCKING PARADOXDEAL WITH IT.
>>28687073Just like Felicia right?Honor the heroic sacrifice.They die so that you may live ans save them.
>>28686820>[ ] Head off, its time to go. (With Stella)He would have given us an option to take both if it was possible,
>>28687073good point, flash already died. we wouldn't want to watch another person die needlessly while we have this bitch on the ropes already
So Stella is the obvious favorite if we can only choose one or the other, but the Doktor can tag along if possible and without causing a paradox?Also, I'm going to call it and say that her name is Lucia von Bardas.
>>28687120Agreed. Hell, if MJ is Alice is Carnage this is her doing the first unselfish thing ever. She's working through the pain to allow us to win. Don't squander this.
>“WAIT WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! ANSWER ME!”"Finishing this fight."
>>28687112That doesn't matter. Peter wouldn't be thinking 'oh she doesn't matter because she won't exist in another minute'. He would try to save everyone
>>28687161It's too late for that.Maybe if we had saved Flash, Felicia, or Omega.
>>28687143Carnage is a useless head with tendrils right now. He's not much of a threat at this point. It already was afraid for its death before Alice came in with her bomb arm.
>>28687159also, if us taking one sets spidey sense off make sure to check who is setting it offhe did say our link to magic would warn us after all
>>28687173Do you really think Peter Parker would just think 'Oh well, other people died so fuck it?' This isn't Spock we're talking about
>>28687173This. Our Peter's been forced to learn how to accept and honor his friends' sacrifices. He will hopefully grow strong enough to shoulder the weight of their decisions as time goes on.
>>28687181>head with tendrils>not a threatsomeone clearly doesn't jojo.
>>28687208He also understands that there are WAY more important things at stake then a single person's life. If Peter dies here this future will never be prevented.1 life vs. at least millions, probably billions
>>28687208I think if someone was giving their lives to buy him time to fix everything he would take it.
>>28687181You say that, but then you assume it's over and the same thing that happened to Flash happened to us.
Once more into the breach...
>>28687208Really? That thrones going to self destruct, is is her choice, how she wants to spend the remains of her life, to give us the chance to fix this world, this hell she's been forced to inhabit. You really want to trivialize that and endanger the goal she's trying to achieve? Don't be that selfish.
>>28687232Also this is a bad future episode, everyone sacrificing themselves one by one is how these things go.
>>28687181That is perhaps the dumbest thing I've read in this quest. Carnage is never minor threat. Plus he's about to body jack Alice so your argument doesn't really apply.
>>28687252>space ripper stingy eyesReally? The word "stingy" just completely neutralized the badass combo of "space ripper".
>>28687208She's giving up her life so that Peter can make sure she never has to give up her life.Are you fucking stupid?
>>28683368>a field surrounding a notebook and a vial, a large opened capsule>A notebookDOOM knows what's up.
>>28687328Jojo's like that
>>28687338Also she still might not be Carnage.Like her response to Carnage's presence could just be because Carnage is the one who mauled her, and the whole "Mary Jane Watson vs Gwen Stacy" thing could have been after Gwen was possessed by Carnage.
>>28687308I don't think it can. The only flesh in Alice at this point is her head. If it was going to pull a Dio, it would be unable to interface with the mechanical body left behind. Which is pretty broken, by the way. Also, Alice is gripping Carnage with the CHAR gauntlet. That's why it's glowing red, it's super-heating. Fire has always been a weakness of the symbiote, and even if it's a "perfect being" now, that still can't be good for it. Carnage is done for. But, that said, I still don't think we should tempt fate. It might make one last surge of effort. Let's just hop in the time portal and undo this entire future. That would save Alice, too.
>>28687371We're going to investigate both of them.
>>28687387She's overheating it and not venting, causing a catastrophic hardware failure.>>28687393Naturally. The second we step foot back in our time, we go right back to work.
>>28687393I thought we concluded that Gwen probably wasn't the maximum carnage killer? Given how her memories were all twisted?
>>28687436>probablyThere's your problem.>>28687426>The second we step foot back in our time, we go right back to work.I can picture Peter just ignoring everyone after he gets through and start tracking down Gwen and MJ.
>>28687436I think it's pretty unlikely, but it'd probably be a good idea to swing by and say "So, I just went to the future and met Carnage, and you'll never guess who she is," and see how she reacts.
>>28687436Still wise covering our bases. Actually before that we should try to figure out who this father and daughter were, probably be able to realize it was the two we performed for earlier.We also need to make sure Sue and Johnny can patch things up with Reed. We know the Earth needs everyone working together.
>>28687436Yeah, that was what the whole dissection of Carnage's motives speech was about. Still, we need to check any leads we have. First should be seeing if we can figure who the father and daughter that Carnage mentioned were, though. If we can intercept Carnage killing them we can cut straight to the chase. And further our hero status in Anya's eyes, which is good seeing how she's the future Spider-Girl.
>>28687436We did given how she reacted to our analysis. We still need to investigate her though to be sure. Not to mention figuring out her stalker, which we can assume ended up as Jackal.Our primary concern upon arrival is handing DOOM the suspended materials, getting him to give us a blood scan and make sure everyone in the room clears any and all future terribleness. Then we go after Carnage. HARD.
>>28687243I dunno, I don't agree with your assessment of peter. If it were Spock we were talking about I'd completely agree with you on that thought train but I never saw Peter thinking along the lines of cold logic. However that's just my opinion though and I can agree to disagree with you on that.>>28687235I will admit I do not get that reference>>28687252Our plan was working flawlessly. This is unneeded.>>28687274Did I miss something? I don't recall a post about the chair exploding.>>28687308Never said he was a minor threat, but he's one we had been handling so far pretty well.
>>28687472We never figured out that Alice is Mary Jane, so we still don't really have any reason to focus on her?Unless our conclusions regarding Spider-Sense makes us believe that maybe it isn't a false positive with her after all.
>>28687508We need to fix things between the Storms and Reed. Doom is probably a no go but to paraphrase Dumbledore, "Those that know the truth need to stand united or we are all lost."
>>28687531The false positives thing might be the case and a reason to follow up on MJ in the present.
>>28687495>We also need to make sure Sue and Johnny can patch things up with ReedHoly shit. All Peter knows about Richards is that he is a mass murdering super genius. He won't immediately attempt to bring him and the other two back together because he'll think that'll just make three people to deal with later.
>>28687530>I will admit I do not get that referenceA cosmic/extradimensional TV producer who delights in reality shows with "lower" dimensional beings getting brutalized.
>>28687537I think what we need to do is make sure that even if Doom and Reed fucking hate each other, they don't enter into an endless feud no matter which one of them is the "villain" (it's both).
>>28687531Just the fact that our spider-sense is going off for an unknown reason is enough to check on her, or maybe ask if we aren't afraid to make the situation worse if she reacts bad.
>>28687558Nevermind. That's Mojo. I don't know who Jojo is.
>>28687550>All Peter knows about Richards is that he is a mass murdering super genius.This is a lie.
>>28687550We know Reed and Doom were at War, both were feared and their final strongholds left otherwise alone in the desolate landscapes.Making sure Reed doesn't go bonkers and build a singularity weapon might be important. Getting Reed and Doom to work together prevents both of them from being scourges upon the world.
>>28687581Everything else is from a friend of his. Which he has learned, isn't always reliable. I just want to stop him and DOOM getting in a pissing contest.
You pause and look back. “Thanks, Alice.”For the first time in forever, she’s showing emotion. She shakes her head, clutching tightly to CARNAGE “Get going, Parker.”“Wait! Stop, Peter. I’ll tell you everything, just save me!”You school your face and head off into the fortress back towards DOOM’s portal. When you arrive there, you see the Doktor and Stella sitting there. “Time to go.”The Doktor shakes her head as her three sets of arms, one of them severed on the forearm, wave you off. “I cannot. I am over ze age of tventy und ze gut doctor here has told me ze rules. Just give zis letter to me, vould you?”Taking the letter, you pause. “But how will I be able to find who you were?”The Doktor leans back and smiles. Mine name is Natascha Spyral und I lived in New York tventy years ago. I’ve done a lot of zings both gut und zerrible, but vith zis letter, I… she should be villing to help you.”Stella walks up, looking nervous. “Is… is it alright for me to go? I.. Don‘t exist back then, Peter.”You kneel down and pat her head. ‘Of course. You’ll just have to become my little sister, is all.”She grabs at the hand on her head. “…Really?”“Really.”“…really, really?!”“Yes, Really, really. I’m taking you back with me, Stella.”She grabs you by the arm and smiles as tears roll down her cheeks. “Alright, let’s go, big brother!”>1/2
>>28687558Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, not that.>>28687576Definitely.>>28687571Yes.We will probably info-dump everything so Sue and Johnny would probably make a better assessment of this than us.
>>28687581I'm sure he knows a lot of other facts about richards but in the future he is in he fucked DOOM's country
>>28687608You smile, pausing only to grab your backpack, the notebook and the cure before the two of you head to the portal. Well, except one last thing. Venom detaches itself as it forms into the form you last saw it on Flash, a black and white Military style Spider-man, as it Salutes you.There’s nothing tingling from your Spider-sense, so it’s fine to take her and rest of the stuff. DOOM’s robot has slumped over, electricity leaving its hand. You’ll never be able to repay the debt you owe that man. The two of you step into the center as the portal opens, drawing the two of you in.----“You bitch, I won’t forget this! Do you know what you’ve cost me?! What I‘ve been reduced to being forced to do?!”“I don’t know, last time we met, which was the first time the two of US met, it was the opposite way around at the end. Fitting our second and last encounter should be like this, considering our bizarre circumstances.”“…IMPOSSIBLE YOU- YOU CAN’T POSSIBLY BE-”-TIMELINE ERASED
>>28687608>She grabs you by the arm and smiles as tears roll down her cheeks. “Alright, let’s go, big brother!”Harrybeingjealous.jpg
>>28687606Sue's earned our trust. If she says he's a good man under all the shit, we'll believe her and take a chance.

>>28687625>“I don’t know, last time we met, which was the first time the two of US met, it was the opposite way around at the end....Mary Jane not being Carnage confirmed?
>>28687608So adorable>>28687625Manly tears
>>28687640>take a chanceIs this a joke? Peter is gonna be looking under his bed after all this shit. He won't take a chance with a potential mass murderer on his friends word.
>>28687641He killed a country in a future where everything went to shit and his rivalry with Doom escalated.
>>28687625>“…IMPOSSIBLE YOU- YOU CAN’T POSSIBLY BE-”>-TIMELINE ERASEDCouldn't wait two more seconds before the universe imploded...
>>28687668Carnage just realized that Alice was the real Gwen Stacy.
>>28687670No, the other way round was Gwen beating Carnage MJ.
>>28687668I don't get it either. Is Alice Gwen or Mary Jane
>>28687680He will if it keeps Latveria from being destroyed.
>>28687668>>28687670>>28687689I'm thinking Gwen actually won the fight, cradled the head and was infected.
Rolled 8>>28687700>I now know our next question we have to ask Cos
>>28687700I think it's Alice telling Gwen/Carnage the last (first) time they met, it was Gwen/Carnage killing her. And this time it's the other way around.
>>28687641No, we also know his scientific credentials and history. We're a nerd and followed his career, remember? We know about what he can do, to an extent. And from imprisoning his (ex)girlfriend and her brother, I think it's safe to assume that he's rather morally bankrupt.
>>28687682I don't care what the circumstances are. It takes a special kind of asshole to wipe out a country just because you really hate one guy.
>>28687625Cosgrove, do we have enough time to have Stella illusion us in this costume as we come out of the portal?
I have a feeling that Cos is going to use this like DC uses Kingdom Come. Everytime we see things moving towards this future we will freak out.
>>28687625Venom detaches itself as it forms into the form you last saw it on Flash, a black and white Military style Spider-man, as it Salutes you.Based Venom.
>>28687729Have Stella illusion herself as the other guy while you're at it.
>>28687692But Mary Jane's met Gwen Stacy before.They go to the same school.Which to me means that MJ is addressing Carnage, not Gwen Stacy.
>>28687729Nope, and honestly I'd rather not freak Doom out too much. You know?
>>28687728>It takes a special kind of asshole to wipe out a country just because you really hate one guy.NO FUCKING SHIT! We're talking about Reed Richards. The dude is the most unstable son of a bitch in the multiverse. The problem is, he has to live. He's too much of a keystone to everything. But if he goes evil, he usually ends up blowing up the planet or the universe. We've had this discussion multiple times. The only fucking way to handle Reed is to distract him as a super hero.
>>28687741Guys......why don't we have parker build a sturdy suit modeled after this?
>>28687755They haven't met out of school, and you can even have the same class and know nothing about some of your classmates
>>28687709That doesn't seem to fit the >First time two of US metEspecially if Gwen would have checked around the area while looking for us.
>>28687755they might have gone to the same school, but I doubt that they would have ever really introduced themselves to each other.
>>28687729we could at least go with a classic
>>28687777We could just find Venom instead
>>28687729Throwing all my support behind this.We just step out covered in steam and shit, looking intense and battered.Silence when when spoken to."P-Peter...?">90's one-liner about fucking the future
>>28687755Or Alice isn't MJ. If she's Anya it'd fit.
>>28687795I agree, we know venom suit is a bro from our future trip, why not bond the fuck out of him
>>28687787>>28687784True, but that just makes the line "first time we met" kind of meaningless, if it's "discounting all those other times we saw each other".Plus I'm pretty sure Alice knows that there isn't really any part of Gwen Stacy left in there, so the "US" is also meaningless because the person she would be addressing in that case had pretty much died a long time ago.
>>28687803Only that doesn't make sense from points people have brought up since we met Alice.Gwen mentioned killing a little girl and her dad.ALICE as built from a young woman.
Rolled 1>>28687811I'm sad we didn't discover or use any new future tech
>>28687795we bonded with venom temporarily right? we might know where it is.
>>28687811It's not the same Venom. The future one was a bro, the new one will be completely different.
>>28687795Agreed. This Venom had quite a bit of class.
>>28687831We tried. Man, did we try.
This is Based.I want to see our reunion with Felicia, but it will read it in the archives. I gotta catch an early train tomorrow.Goodnight all. Good luck.The first goddamn thing we do is silently march up to Felicia and give her a hug and an "I love you." with little or no explanation."So, that future sucked. Lets make a better one"
>>28687606Fuck Richards. If Doom wants our help ruining his day, then we will answer the call.Because we owe Doom more than we could ever possibly pay back. Well, that and Richards is a giant asshole, but it's mostly the life debt thing.
>>28687831Blame the triple 1's when we tried to mess with the laptop.
>>28687803Why would she respond to our talking video games and MJ bullying us?That'd just be bullshit deception there.Like how Jackpot was built up to be Mary Jane but then all of a sudden wasn't.
>>28687760"WHAT?! Oh come on, how many chances do you have to do something like that?! Cut me some slack. But seriously the future sucks eggs."
>>28687838Sadly, this is the most likely case. Either that or it turns into a bro because of Flash....
>>28687831We still have the sports almanac. We're about to turn a HUGE profit on the first sports game we can bet on
>>28687831Well, we did, we just destroyed if all. Oh, and Stella brough a future handheld game console back with her, so there's that I guess.
HEADS UP: We're on page 8we are archived though
>>28687838But it will read our memory of its future self from us, if not read the genetic markers it leaves in its hosts so it'll know what we know. It will immediately see what it could be and how well we got along with that iteration of it, so it has a goal to work towards being.
>>28687831We have a genetically engineered cyborg loli made with alien-god genes toting super weapons around. We're good.
>>28687862We should have one also...
>>28687857Then we teach the symbiote to be a bro by sharing with it the memory of it's possible future self.
>>28687862We have an excellent idea on how future technology DOESN'T work.
>>28687845I don't want to have to fight him or anything, let's not provoke him into blowing up Latveria We've managed to talk our way out of a lot of situations and that's one conflict I think we can resolve with our Parker Charm
The portal opens as you two travel through that realm, you hand tightly wrapped around Stella’s as, eventually you reach the other side. You hope, desperately you’re back in DOOM’s embassy and on time.The two of you stumble out of the tunnel as you land on one knee. The two of you are on a familiar ramp in a familiar looking laboratory. But, there doesn’t seem to be anyone here. Heading back out towards DOOM’s study, you quietly open the door to see Johnny, Sue, DOOM, and Felicia there. DOOM seems to be working on paperwork while Johnny’s playing some sort of videogame and Sue is reading a book. Felicia is over in a corner sleeping against it. They haven’t seemed to have noticed you yet.>[ ] Play a prank>[ ] Fuck it, you just want to cure your girlfriend.>[ ] Write in
