AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #50 Finally Reveals Kindred's True Identity And It's An Absolute Shocker - SPOILERS
Today's issue of Amazing Spider-Man finally pulls back the curtain on Kindred's identity, and it's fair to say that it's a shocker, and a real game-changer for the web-slinger moving forward...
The mysterious Kindred has been stalking Peter Parker since pretty much the start of Nick Spencer's Amazing Spider-Man run, and there are a tonne of theories out there relating to his true identity.
In today's Amazing Spider-Man #50, Norman Osborn - now at the mercy of the Sin-Eater - reiterates that he knows who Kindred is, and drops some big hints about his true name. Moments later, he's gunned down and cleansed of sin, but the sins Stan Carter has collected are unleashed by Kindred shortly after and take control of heroes like Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen and Silk.
Later in the issue, it's revealed that Kindred has dug up the bodies of Captain George Stacy and his daughter Gwen and has placed them at a table which Peter Parker will soon also be sat at.
Pretty twisted, right? Well, at the end of the issue, the "cleansed" Norman Osborn confirms many a fan theory by revealing that Harry is Kindred. This is definitely something that needs to be explained because Peter's best friend was confirmed to be alive at the start of the "Brand New Era," with it later revealed that he woke up after his apparent demise before being hidden in Europe.
That Harry is still alive and well, though he hasn't had much to do for a while now. So, are they one and the same? It seems doubtful, and chances are that resurrected Harry is a clone or something similar, with this one being the original who spent years trapped in hell after his demise. With his dying words, Harry made amends with Peter, but something clearly changed in Hell, and he's now out for revenge.
What do you guys think about this massive Kindred revelation?
