Carolyn turned him into a hard-light holographic duplicate of the Scarlet Spider, in order to ruin his good name. In his Scarlet Spider guise, Joe was actually trapped in a virtual reality chamber, and his thoughts powered the hologram. Despite this, Joe was unable to stop himself from committing acts of violence.
