RESPECT SCARLET SPIDER (KAINE)

SCARLET SPIDER (KAINE)

ALL THE POWER, NONE OF THE RESPONSIBILITY

Strength

  • Out of costume, crushes a high-speed car by swinging and landing on it, without injuries.
  • An enraged Kaine beats down Salamander in a couple hits.
  • Overcomes Venom's grip and uppercuts him with stingers, proving that they can hurt symbiotes.
  • In the Microverse, Scarlet Spider rips off the jaw of an amoeba.
  • Despite being tied in chains designed to withstand even Spider-Man's peak strength, Kaine is able to break them and escape.
  • After being pummeled by Superior Spider-Man while trying to negotiate, Scarlet Spider kicks SpOck once and makes him fall. SpOck even states how Kaine is unbelievably stronger than he is, and how he can barely think after a hit like that.

Speed/Agility

  • Kaine (out of suit), is able to easily dodge tons of bullets.
  • Pushes Dr. Meland out of the way so quickly that the assassin doesn't even notice him there. Kaine then cloaks and gets the drop on his opponent, appearing right in front of him, and dodges a point-blank sniper shot.
  • Catches an arrow shot at him from behind, dodges bullets, and uses the zombie assassin to absorb the impact of the bullets.
  • After cloaking, Kaine proceeds to speed blitz the entire Assassin's Guild team sent at him with ease. Not even the (street-level) speedster, Harvester can keep up with him.
  • While swinging, Scarlet Spider evades automatic Uzi gunfire from a speeding van.
  • Knocks the gun out of a slave trafficker's hand before he can fire his weapon.
  • Kaine barely notices Zoe as she is falling down the building, still manages to save her, dodges flaming debris, and strategically places webbing to save civilians from any injuries/death from the debris.
  • As he dodges automatic gunfire, Kaine is able to kick the employee out of harm's way.
  • Dodging gunfire from two thugs with automatic weapons.
  • Evades gunfire from multiple hired thugs, and pushes Officer Layton out of the way.
  • Scarlet Spider speed blitz and humiliates a whole gang of thugs dressed as Santa with MP5s.
  • Dodges Iceman's numerous projectiles with absolute ease.
  • After being blasted out of the room, disorientated, by a rocket, Kaine still manages to web up all his friends before they splatter across the pavement.

Durability

  • The Scarlet Spider costume has regenerative abilities.
  • In SCARLET SPIDER #24, we learn that Kaine's costume has unstable molecules which renders it completely fireproof.
  • Kaine is able to endure being slashed by Ana Kravinoff's poisoned knife directly twice, and is still able to engage in combat.
  • Gets ambushed by The Rangers and is hit by an array of different powers. Still, his suit is completely fine and he doesn't seem to have any major injuries.
  • Carnage stabs right through Kaine with a tendril, and yet the Scarlet Spider simply removes it and shrugs it off.
  • Already weakened, Kaine gets punched by Bruiser and bounces back to the fight instantly (literally).
  • Scarlet Spider tanks getting hit by Armadillo numerous times without significant injuries.
  • Gets blasted full-on by Candra and Bella Donna in the midst of battle and is still able to get up.
  • Suffering from hallucinating poison, a Kaine that is holding back due to his shock from "Ben Reilly's" appearance, actually Kraven (2 tonner) impersonating him is hit by endless blows but still manages to be able to fight back (after he snaps).

Stealth

  • Despite not being in his suit with cloaking technology, Kaine is experienced with using the darkness to stealthily take out opponents.
  • Sneaks up on a mugger without him even knowing after spying on him for an extended period of time. Kaine also states he "sees it all" inferring he is fast enough to monitor multiple activities around the city at the same time.
  • As the SWAT Team comes in to disarm the bomb, Scarlet Spider is cloaked and the forces are unable to see him.
  • Not even the Assassin's Guild can keep up with Scarlet Spider's cloaking, especially considering how swift he is.
  • Kaine sneaks up on the Assassin's Guild yet again, this time in a very populated restaurant before revealing his position.
  • An Assassin's Guild operative is unable to track down Kaine, even with his special visor.
  • With Wolverine, Kaine infiltrates the Guild's headquarters, and, without cloaking, stealth kills multiple assassins.

Miscellaneous

  • Kaine can speak fluent Japanese.
  • Scarlet Spider showing the ability to communicate to spiders in a huge radius, even being able to see what they see from across the entire city to track down a bomb.
  • Saving a man from very heavy fires and a collapsing building that even the firefighters couldn't take out.
  • Punching Twister (not much of a feat but I like it).

The Other/Ascended Scarlet Spider

  • Fighting against, and easily defeating, Carlos and Esmerelda Lobo as The Other.
  • Kaine holds his own against Shathra for a short period of time, until he absolutely wrecks her when he turns into Ascended Kaine to save Wally.

Fights

  • Versus a group of thugs at a meet with various weaponry like sub-machine guns and shotguns (out of costume). Also shows impressive manipulation over a large amount of spiders.
  • Versus Salamander, a superhuman with manipulation and generation of fire.
  • Versus Agent Venom after he "Vulks" out.
  • Versus Ana Kravinoff after he was injured and poisoned (with signs of paralysis) by her knife.
  • Versus a sniper from the Assassin's Guild sent to kill Donald Meland.
  • Versus a team of very elite Assassin's Guild members (including Harvester and Flower).
  • Versus the Assassin's Guild in their headquarters (Kaine has help from Wolverine).
  • Versus the Assassin's Guild after Candra (Red Death) is revived.
  • Versus The Hand, a group of highly trained ninjas owned/followed by Kingpin.
  • Versus Bruiser, who has superhuman strength and durability.
  • Versus Carnage for the first time as Scarlet Spider, and holds his own. Stingers are shown to inflict lots of damage against symbiotes.
  • Versus Carnage a second time in the Microverse, and seems to be gaining the upper hand until Cletus pulls a cheap move to escape.
  • Versus an amped Carnage briefly for the third time to save Agent Venom, and fights Carnage's "children".
  • Versus a (momentarily) giant Carnage for the final time after Kaine exits the Microverse.
  • Versus a drunk Armadillo, who has superhuman strength, durability, and razor sharp claws.
  • Versus Jackal's mutated spiders after a brief clash with Superior Spider-Man.
  • Versus Jackal's mutated spiders and minions after Kaine was tied down by chains specifically designed to keep down Spider-Man.
  • Versus Mammon, an entity of pure energy that uses humans as a host.
  • Versus the Microverse Amoeba Monster.
  • Versus the heavy security at Roxxon, in which Kaine easily dispatches.
  • Versus even heavier security from Roxxon.
  • Versus Superior Spider-Man. Kaine absorbs many powerful blows from SpOck, and when he's put up with it, demonstrates with a single kick, how if he really tried, he could easily defeat Spidey.
  • Versus The Rangers, Houston's premiere superhero team.
  • Versus The Rangers after being ambushed, briefly, for the second time.
  • Versus a van going at top speed with thugs with Uzi's.
  • Versus an array of several gangs over a course of several nights.
  • Versus another onslaught of different (rival) gangs over a course of a few days.
  • Versus thugs involved in slave trafficking.
  • Versus a mugger. More of a badass feat than combat.
  • Versus a group of criminals dressed as Santa armed with MP5s.
  • Versus armed thugs at a Nuclear Lab.
  • Versus an armed slave trafficker.
  • Versus guard thugs at the William P. Hobby Airport.
  • Versus the Werewolves of War (The Lobo Siblings).
  • Versus the X-Men, then defeats Wolverine (it was revealed later than Logan was in on the plan, but not the rest of the X-Men. However, it's still a seemingly accurate depiction of a fight between the two).
  • Versus two tigers, then fights Ana Kravinoff once again. Kaine holds back the majority of the fight, but when he's done "playing with her", he beats her in a few hits.
  • Versus Kraven. Kaine holds back the entire fight, and takes a severe beating from the hunter. But, like his daughter, once the Scarlet Spider doesn't hold back, he one-shots his opponent.

FEATS WILL BE UPDATED AS THE ISSUES ROLL OUT.

I can't stand it! It's not fair! Scarlet Spider is at least ten times better than Superior Spider-Man and it's getting canned. Shame on you Marvel. Shame on you!

Posted by jashro44

Great job! Hopefully marvel has other plans for Kaine (plans written by yost and drawn by Stegman preferably)

Posted by youmessinwithme

Shame he's getting canceled.

But question is Kaine only stronger than Spider-man in his current form in his suit? or is he just physically superior?

Posted by Wolverine08

Incredible respect. Lots of good scans for me to use.

Edited by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek

@wolverine08: Much appreciated brother!

@youmessinwithme: Kaine was always superior to Spider-Man in nearly every area. Classic Kaine fought Peter and Ben Reilly both at the same time. Current Scarlet Spider Kaine is about the same if you ask me. The only downside is he doesn't have Spider-Senses anymore.

@jashro44: Thanks! And yeah I hope so too. I don't want this to be the end of the road for Scarlet Spider.

That's some Deathstroke level badassery right there.

Agreed

Kaine was the real Superior Spiderman, if you ask me.

Updated with Kaine's fight against Kraven.

Kaine is awesome. I can't wait to see the feats he pulls in the New Warriors.

They'll probably be even more impressive seeing as Nova is in the team, and the enemies will be significantly more powerful.

Just had a funny image of Kaine giving Nova "the talk" When it comes to Aracely.

LMAO. He'll probably try and use some really bad spider analogy with "webbing" and stuff.

This is nice. I have respect for Kaine.

@mitran: Thanks. Are you following the series?

Posted by JetiiMitra

@yourneighborhoodcomicgeek: I started out following inconsistently, but started reading consistently at around 19. Which makes it more disappointing that it's ending soon :(

Yeah it really sucks. At least he's going to be in New Warriors.

Yeah... I'm not sure about picking it up though. Maybe the first couple of issues to see the team dynamic. If Kaine isn't prominent I'm dropping it fast.

It's absolutely superb. The ending is also great.

Posted by Mrgreenlantern

the ending of the latest issue was really really good, however with that said im scared we might just run out of time before they can finish Kaine's story of redemption
