I need to vent a little because I'm not so pleased about this.
I'm not into Marvel superhero comics because they burned a lot of bridges with me. Since I decided to drop them the only characters I supported were Spider-Girl (Mayday Parker along with her world) and Scarlet Spider/Kaine Parker. Marvel has since destroyed the concept of Spider-Girl and couldn't even bother to research the series. Which by the way was the longest running female solo series Marvel had. The creators of said series weren't pleased and kind of ran with the inconsistencies hinting that it wasn't their May. Meanwhile Marvel uses another kid in their new marriage Spider-Man series further ignoring a character that already has a loyal fan base.
Spider-Girl and the Kaine Parker SS series both have Ben Reilly as an important legacy.
In Spider-Girl we had:
- May wearing her "uncle's" (she doesn't know he was a clone) Spider-Man costume.
- Felicity Hardy briefly wore Ben's SS costume when she tried to take over the ID.
- Ben had a son.
- Peter gets upset when clones come up.
Even if I ignore all the B.S. with Ben coming back from dust to become the Jackel this pisses me off. I wanted focus on Kaine and loved him as the Scarlet Spider ! This design isn't working for me either. I can't tell if it's the look in general or how it's drawn here. That mask smile is throwing me off.
