We Are Totally Getting a Ben Reilly as Scarlet Spider Comic Book
The inevitable is now confirmed: the original Scarlet Spider will be getting his own comic again. Right now, Ben Reilly has come back from the dead in Clone Conspiracy as the semi-villainous Jackal. The story isn’t over, but Marvel is totally cool about revealing that he’ll survive the story and come out the other side as the star of Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider.
His costume isn’t very good.
It also looks worse than the last guy to star in a Scarlet Spider comic, Kaine. That black and red costume was the bomb.
Speaking of whom, Kaine will also be a major character in the new comic, so that’s awesome. I find myself liking Kaine more than Ben these days. I look forward to seeing the two of them butting heads in the new comic!
The series was announced on Comic Book Resources. You can read the brief interview with writer Peter David, whom I like, and artist Mark Bagley, whom I also like. This is a pretty awesome Spider-Man creative team.
