Some of you might know the original Scarlet Spider, Ben Reilly, from Spider-man’s clone saga. If not, it doesn’t matter as it looks like there will be a new person dawning the Scarlet Spider mantel next year.
Because of (the fantastic) events of Spider Island, the new Scarlet Spider has to get the heck out of New York City. Eventually he finds himself in Houston, Texas. Unfortunately, the Parker luck extends to the whole Spider family and trouble finds Scarlet Spider in his new city. I always like when superheroes find their way out of New York. You’d think with the Fantastic Four, Avengers, Spider-Man, Punisher, DareDevil and more living in New York villains would have left town years ago.
Scarlet Spider starts in January and is being created by Chris Yost and Ryan Stegman.
