Kaine's costume: Love it or Hate it?

#1 Edited by Strider92 (16837 posts) - - Show Bio

I recently picked up issue 2 of Scarlet Spider and finally got a glimpse of Kaine's suit in action (apart from Point One where we saw a little bit). Before I read it I wasn't really that keen on the costume design it felt a bit bland and un-creative but after reading that issue its actually starting to grow on me.

The first image I saw was the cover to Scarlet Spider 1: I took one look at this and thought "urg!"

Then after seeing this I started to like it. (if you haven't read the issue you might want to avoid reading the text to avoid spoilers):

So what are your thoughts on it?

I think it looks pretty awesome.

Feels like it needs spikes somewhere though.

I love it so much. The red eyes on black mask, the plain spider on the front with the triangle on the back. It's just a perfect inversion of Peter's classic suit.

Love it.

I thought it was alright but not spectacular after seeing it for the first time, but my opinion has only improved after seeing it more. It's a very effective look. Thumbs up.

Kaine's new costume is pretty cool but it does remind me of the Pittsburgh Steelers old uniforms from 1966. Not that that's a bad thing.

After Scarlet Spider 2 I'm loving it, the artist makes the difference.

I dig it. It's something new and there's nothing wrong with that.

@SadiaVicious: I agree, before reading Scarlet Spider #2 I hated it but now i'm really starting to like it!

#24 Posted by GrandSymbiote94 (11723 posts) - - Show Bio

I like it. But I preferred his classic costume.

This pretty much covers me.

I hate the man it the costume. I wanted to see Ben Reilly again.

@Kairan1979: Really? I like Kaine as a character. Although I do agree he should have a different name. Personally I think he should have kept the name Tarantula.

I like it, although I hope this design is still usable in the future

#29 Posted by laflux (17548 posts) - - Show Bio

#30 Posted by haydenclaireheroes (7559 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the costume design. I like that it is different from the Ben Rielly costume design

I like it. It's spicy

#32 Posted by primepower53 (5591 posts) - - Show Bio

looove it.

#33 Posted by ReVamp (22798 posts) - - Show Bio

Does no one think its a bit too much like Spider-Man? I'm wondering when people will confuse him with the latter, ending up with people thinking Parker's Spider-Man is a murderer.

@ReVamp: Well in the synopsis for Scarlet Spider 5 it says he's attracted the attention of the Avengers. Maybe that's exactly whats happened.

Meh. I'm not sure, Spidey would probably tell them he knew who that is. Its possible they're after him, but I doubt they're trying to figure out who he is.

@ReVamp: Well Kaine has changed the suit but Peter still should know who it is. Not sure what another reason could be.

I like it a lot. I think it suits Kaine. That being said.... the hoodie he had on over his costume in the beginning was pretty bad ass looking. I really hope if they ever decide to bring back Ben Riley he'll have an outfit with a hood like that but still sleeveless..
