Jackal (real name: Miles Warren) is a supervillain from Marvel Comics who originated from Spider-Man comics. He is mostly a foe of Spider-Man best known from The Clone Saga arcand college professor of the hero's first love, Gwen Stacy, who he was infatuated with. Warren was stricken with grief when Gwen died at the hands of the Green Goblin, but blamed Spider-Man for the event and swore he will make him pay for his student's murder.


Warren was a normal college professor with a not normal infatuation with Gwen Stacy bordering on lust. When Gwen was murdered, Miles was driven mad and becomes the creature criminal known as "Jackal". It is his actions that causes the events of The Clone Saga.
