Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten. 
So, Spidey is out of commission AND is not supposed to physically be Spider-man anymore or the Red Goblin will kill everyone Peter knows. Peter does what every kid would do and play on the semantics of what was said and “he” won’t “physically” be Spider-man but will organize others to “hide ja kids, hide ja wife’s” for him like Johnny Storm, Clash, Silk, Miles, and Agent Venom. 

After Peter organizes his crew to help protect his friends and family, Peter eventually finds out the J. Jonah is the one who spilled the beans on his identity AND realizes that Harry and his family are the first targets. We also learn that rich people microchip their kids like puppies and the nanny was actually Harry’s long-lost mommy. 

Torch and Clash think they can take Red Goblin down since fire and sound hurt symbiotes. WRONG! A symbiote mixed with the goblin formula magically gets the best parts of both with none of the nasty side effects, which seemed rather convenient. Good thing Anti-Venom ( Flash) is on the scene to which we find out his powers still hurt the symbiote. 

Being the hero Flash Thompson has become, he tries to help his injured comrades by healing them with his symbiote but Red Goblin sneaks up on him and takes him down. When Red Goblin leaves he takes his grandson and makes him a Mini Red Goblin... like Mini-Me ( R.I.P). Spidey swings in after Norman leaves and Flash does a Hail Mary to use the last of his powers to fix Spider-man to get him off the bench and back in the game. But will Spider-man actually help?

Bits and Pieces:
The first 2 issues of this arc were great and this issue wasn’t terrible by any means BUT it seemed a bit rushed to wrap it up by issue 800 and possibly Slott's last issue ( not sure on that one).  AND Peter only stops being Spider-man for one issue and comes back to fight him in 800 also seems silly. It makes this issue seems less important and thrown together.  Personally, I see Anti-Spider happening next issue, which is technically NOT Spider-man if we go by semantics, and he takes down Red Goblin leaving a trace of it in his Grandson for a future story to come. But, we shall see.
