maybe his new powers were a setup to a result of the ending of Amazing Spider-man....maybe Kaine will be taking over as the center of the web

@PunyParker: Kaine was resurrected with the same abilities Spider-man had after "The Other" and by the same being when he died. Yost hinted that he was going to do this at the beginning of last year. This is the same thing that happened in "The Other: Evolve Or Die" :) Thats what i've heard anyhow.

I'm very much enjoying Scarlet Spider (even though I read each issue hoping Ben Reilly will return in some form) and thought that 12.1 was the best issue yet. I'm not 100% sold on the art and I skipped the non-SS issues of Minimum Carnage.

This looks interesting in that I would like to see Kaine's take on "The Other." He's so level-headed that I do not think he'd be taken in by whatever faux-mystical foe shows up claiming to represent some grand spider-power-that-be.

Does anyone else know what's going on with Aracely? I feel as if it's been a while since that plot was developed.

Yeah something strange is going on there. She seems to be a telepath given what we've seen her do. Guess we'll have to wait and see what Yost comes up with.

Certainly been worth the wait so far. I really enjoyed his work on "Earth's Mightiest Heroes." I do hope that Kaine gets more unique villains to go up against. The RoXXon arc was great, really showcased what Kaine would do in a given situation as opposed to how Peter might handle it.

I know this thread is pretty old but I have something I need to get off my chest.

Why did Kaine wake up with the "Other" powers before he even embraced it in contrast to Peter whom didn't get them until afterwards?

#15 Posted by Strider92 (16238 posts) - - Show Bio

@segamarvel: I think it was to do with the Jackal. The Jackal gave Kaine some kind of serum to resurrect him as a more spider-like creature (soon becoming Tarantula). I'm guessing it was kind of an artificial enhancement that caused Kaine to develop "Other-like" attributes. Other than that i'm not sure.
