So quick questions about the new status. I know the official answer is "to be revealed" but I'm interested in your speculation.

1) If no one knows Spider-Mans secret identity, did the Clone Saga still happen? Miles Warren would have need to know that Peter Parker was Spider-Man to make the clones right?

2) Why did Norman Osborn kill Gwen Stacey?

3) If everyone knows that Norman is the Green Goblin, why does Harry hate Spider-Man?

You have to take into consideration, just because no one knows Peter is Spider-Man NOW doesn't mean that they NEVER knew. Marvel's official stance on the Civil War unmasking is that it happened, and people remember it happened, but no one quite remembers the face they saw under the mask. Similarly, people like Norman Osborn for example probably know and remember that they used to know who Spider-Man is, it's just that they don't remember who he is at the moment.

Whoa, that opens up a whole new can of worms (as if there weren't a couple hundred already slithering around). Lex Luthor briefly knew that Clark Kent was Superman, but Manchester Black (I know) mindwiped him. He still knew that he once knew, which infuriated him and even intensified his hatred of Supes (who he blamed for the mindwipe). If that is the case with Norman, it really should be played out in a story (though it won't).

I reckon someone as crazy as Norman would probably attribute his forgetting on his own severe psychosis. Especially given how unbalanced he is right now in Thunderbolts.

Actually, the official answer is "don't look back, look forward."

> 1) If no one knows Spider-Mans secret identity, did the Clone Saga still happen?

Yes, but what the characters might remember about it is anybody's guess. Whatever they remember is much different than what was depicted in the comics.

>Miles Warren would have need to know that Peter Parker was Spider-Man to make the clones right?

Yeah, but he's dead so he's unaffected by the mind wipe.

> 2) Why did Norman Osborn kill Gwen Stacey?

His original motivation remains, but he forgot it. Most likely, he now thinks that he killed her just so he could raise the kids. So not only did OMD not retcon "Sins Past," it actually made it more important!

> 3) If everyone knows that Norman is the Green Goblin, why does Harry hate Spider-Man?

Actually, that is something that they said will be revealed.

Someone as crazy as Norman would always blame someone other than himself.
