Scarlet Spider

Postby DarthEnder » Feb 26th, 2013 @ 6:22pm

I think what they're doing here is pretty cool.

One of the things that always annoys me about Spider-man is writers are always trying to give him new powers and abilities, and he always ends up losing them because Spider-man always has to be vanilla Spider-man in the long run.

I've never been a fan of that. I like my characters to grow and improve over time. Get stronger. Probably the reason I like shounen anime so much.

So this idea of them creating this other character that's basically Spider-man, but they can give him new powers and it doesn't ruin real Spider-man is interesting.

Spoiler: show
They've already given him the mystic spider totem powers. Now he just needs a symbiote and some mechanical spider arms!

That said, his The Other form looks really stupid.

It's a great comic. I haven't read it since Minimum Carnage ended (which was surprisingly alright) but only because I miss Stegman and I got too much on my reading pile. I'll wait for it to get collected and probably catch up.

Hey yeah, this book's is long gone now. Though the character is part of the New Warriors currently.

Sadly, he didn't gain any of the other power-ups I was hoping he'd get. At least, not yet anyway.
