THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2: Latest Daily Bugle Viral Mentions Hobgoblin, She-Venom And More
The latest The Amazing Spider-Man 2 viral article from the fictional 'Daily Bugle' newspaper discusses the upcoming trial of Curt Connors, but is packed with plenty of Easter Eggs for eagle eyed Spidey fans. They include mentions of Ned Leeds, Anne Weying and Oscorp employee Donald Menken. Check it out!
"Cold Blooded Killer" is the headline of the latest Daily Bugle viral article for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but far more interesting are the numerous Easter Eggs littered throughout this report. Firstly, it was written by Ned Leeds; the reporter who often battled Peter Parker for the affections of Betty Brant and was eventually brainwashed by Roderick Kingsley into donning the Hobgoblin mantle. Connors' lawyer is none other than Anne Weying, the woman who would later marry Eddie Brock and for a time became She-Venom before committing suicide. Finally, Donald Menken is an Oscorp employee fiercely loyal to Norman Osborn. Check out the article in full below!
A trial date has been set in the New York Appellate Court for alleged bio-terrorist Dr. Curt Connors. The former Oscorp biogenetics scientist has been indicted on twenty city and state counts, including trespassing, malicious destruction of property, theft of private property, aggravated assault, and using a weapon of mass destruction. Connors has pleaded “not guilty” to all counts. It is expected his defense attorney, Anne Weying, will claim Connors was not responsible for the actions of his genetically transformed alter ego, the Lizard.
Connors claimed that pressure placed on him by his employer, Oscorp, led him to rush his bio-restorative formula and test it on himself. He further stipulated to the grand jury that his decision to use the untested compound was made in an effort to protect the company from experimenting on innocent civilians, as directed by his superiors. Connors’ immediate supervisor at Oscorp, Dr. Rajit Ratha, has been missing since the day before the Lizard’s attack.
Oscorp spokesman, Donald Menken, responded, “We can’t corroborate or deny Dr. Connor’s claims. Dr. Ratha’s abrupt departure from Oscorp has left us with far more questions than answers. Needless to say, Oscorp has always complied with the most stringent local, state and federal regulations for all of our research and development.”
