The Many Foes of Spider-Man - Doppelganger

Look out Spider-Man, here comes the Man-Spideresque Doppelganger.

Doppelganger, also known as Spider-Doppelganger, is an evil, near-mindless double (or doppleganger if you will) of Spider-Man created during a battle called the Infinity War. Doppelganger possesses Spider-Man's strength, speed, wall-climbing abilities, spider-sense, and has six arms, claws, fangs, and the ability to produce its own razor-edged webbing.

Doppelganger was killed during the Infinity War by the Hobgoblin, but was revived by the Demogoblin after which time Doppleganger served as a pet of sorts to the demonic goblin. Doppleganger was eventually put down by Carnage in the Maximum Carnage storyline, and has not been seen since.

I'm glad this guy died. We didn't really need another 'evil twin' for Spider-Man to battle. Venom was already the 'evil' Spider-Man and Carnage was also suppose to be a more evil Spider-Man. Why did the doppleganger need to live beyond the Infinity War story line?

My opinion is the same with Demogoblin. Why did we need to see another 'evil version' of the goblin? The Green Goblin was bad and the Hobgoblin was worse. There was no need to top that with the Demogoblin. I was happy, however, when the Hobgoblin's character turned into a joke and the Green Goblin became the real threat.

agreed. there are far too many goblins (arent there 3 green goblins, hobgoblin and demogoblin?) and guys with powers like spider-man, not to mention other versions of spiderman like scarlet spider and spider-carnage. but at least in my mind, this dude was never a major threat.
