    Well, if there’s a Scarlet Spider in the mix, the Marvel Continuity Police must be on the case of the forgotten wife/sold soul of Peter Parker thing…

    Let’s see:

    Piece #1: Joe Quesada ruins Spider-Man for me by turning him from “The Moral Compass of Marvel U” into a pathetic hero that sell the greatest gift he has ever had even as he is told by the the proverbial Devil of Marvel that said gift was from God. In return he forces Aunt May to postpone the bliss of Heven.

    Piece #2: Araña goes from hosting her own book, to being Ms. Marvel’s sidekick, to getting swallowed up by “Eventmania!!!” which will also be running wild on you. Seriously, was Mattie Franklin not available?

    Piece #3: The current Scarlet Spider is the surviving clone of the kid recruited into the worst superhero program ever conceived. I mean, who loses a recruit in a training exercise.

    Piece #4: Madame Web is solely there to entice the people who left disgusted at OMD/BND. The inference is that she might know about the events of OMD. Oh wait, that one might be just me. Never mind.

    The puzzle pieces are certainly interesting. As far as the OMD/BND stuff goes, I’ve pretended to be mindwiped since that time as well….

    Sorry, I stopped caring about Spiderman as a series when I was informed that I just didn’t understand the character. Okay, Big Joe. I’m obviously not your target market. You know, people with disposable income and a history with your product.

    Luckily, Archie doesn’t change. Waaaaaaaait a second…

    The question I have is who’s in the black costume? He looks too slim to be Venom.

      It could very well be Gargan..Osborne being a bio-tech genius found a way to make him perfectly presentable as the new Spider-Man.
