He is mostly a foe of Spider-Man, perhaps best known from The Clone Saga Arc, as well as being known for his secret identity as Miles Warren, college professor of the hero's first love, Gwen Stacy, who he was perversely 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 cause the events of The Clone Saga.
