    Mindspinner last edited by SlamAdams on 09/18/21 02:42PM View full history


    Mindspinner was a clone of Miles Morales created by the Assessor. He was trained and tortured by the Assessor, who ultimately advanced his age by force. He plotted together with his brothers, Shift and Selim, to break out, as soon as they were strong enough.


    Mindspinner was created in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 by Saladin Ahmed and Carmen Nunez Carnero during Miles' own Clone Saga.

    Major Story Arc

    Clone Saga

    Mindspinner followed his brother, Selim, on various heists and kidnappings looking for science equipment and scientists. They realized they were suffering from cellular degradation and would not last much longer without a cure.

    When these crimes gave Miles a bad reputation, he started investigating them. He tracked them to a lab where he thought they were making more clones, so he destroyed it. To get back at him for destroying their cure, Selim and Mindspinner targeted his family, while reluctant Shift guarded Miles.

    Mindspinner heads to Rio's hospital to kill her. Miles escaped with Shift's help and made his way to the hospital, where he was able to overwhelm Mindspinner with his venom blasts. Meanwhile, Selim used Billie to bait Miles to the Brooklyn Bridge. Selim engages in combat to prove he is better than Miles. Eventually, Mindspinner and Shift show up, but when Shift proves to be on Miles' side, Selim attacks him. Mindspinner defends Shift leading to Selim and Mindspinner using their venom blasts on each other and causing a large explosion.

    Mindspinner is presumed dead.


    Mindspinner has many Man-Spider-like characteristics, including fangs, claws, 2 extra pairs of arms, and multiple eyes.

    He also has limited psychic abilities, allowing him use of a "mind blast," which overwhelms his prey and knocks them unconscious. He also has venom blasts with a purple color scheme instead of yellow like Miles and Selim.
