Find out in November as Kaine, Ben Reilly and Ultimate Jessica Drew swing into action in SCARLET SPIDERS #1!
Why Ben Reilly is wearing his Spider-Man costume instead of his Scarlet Spider suit I don’t know, but otherwise it’s pretty cool to see him back in action. Back when Marvel was replacing Spidey with Doc Ock (which lasted way longer than I had thought it would) I was seriously hoping that the ‘new’ and Superior Spider-Man would somehow turn out to be Reilly. I don’t know why, but I enjoyed his time as Spider-Man and like the original Scarlet Spider quite a bit.
I’m also a fan of Kaine’s version of the character, the current incarnation, and it’s cool to have an Ultimate character thrown in there for good measure. Though I have to admit that I don’t read the Ultimate line from Marvel, so I’m not all that familiar with this version of Jessica Drew. Still pretty neat though.
Scarlet Spiders #1 hits stands on November the 19th from Marvel and the team of Mike Costa and Paco Diaz.
