Amazing Spider-Man #646 [2010] by Mark Waid

The final part of Origin of the Species sees both Doctor Octopus and Spider-Man teaming up to reclaim the Osborn baby from the Lizard. While Doctor Octopus and the Lizard fight it out, Spider-Man leaves with the baby who finds out the real father is Harry not Norman Osborn. Harry Osborn decides to leave with his son and Spider-Man is cleared of the kidnapping charges thanks to Commander Steve Rogers. Mark Waid really brought this story to a close however made the situation less complicated by revealing the real father. It was more disturbing and appropriate to find out that Norman fathered the child with Lily much like he did with Gwen Stacy. Brand New Day era comes to a close next month as Dan Slott brings Spider-Man towards the era of Big Time.
