Marvel Comic Books Scarlet Spiders #3 Recap

Whats goin on guys welcome to Comic Island, my name is Joey and today, we are reviewing and recapping the scarlet spiders issue 3. Wow this spider death hit me hard. I know that we were all devastated when cosmic Spider-Man died but the thing is, did we really bond with cosmic Spider-Man? He had a few lines but we really got to know Ben Reilly the scarlet spider. The only good news is that I knew not to get attached to any Spider-Man so I had some emotional cushioning when he died. But what death was more devastating: Cosmic Spider-Man’s death or ben Reilly’s death? The big thing about cosmic’s death was the shock factor but the honest truth is that we didn’t get to know him too well. but then we got to know Ben so much more. We see him getting recruited into the spider army back in the spider verse team up issue 1. And then we see him throughout this event helping out the army, but if he had to die in the spider verse than this was the perfect way to go out.  Because of Ben Reilly, the inheritors now only have to die once. This is huge for the overall story arc. His sacrifice is dramatically helped the spider totem’s cause.

Spider-Verse Scarlet Spiders #3

Ben Reilly the scarlet spider makes the ultimate sacrifice

Ok so now let’s take a look at Kaine. He is now so pissed off. If I had to guess, I would imagine that these 3 spider heroes created such a strong bond and now that Ben is dead, Kaine felt like he just lost a brother. I love this bit of dialog when Ben says his fair wells and tells Kaine to crack a joke every once in a while and that the good guys always win.

Even though this is not an amazing Spider-Man issue, I love what they did with the scarlet spiders. I hope they bring back Ben in some way and I want to see more of these 3 spidermen in future stories. Even though its pretty obvious that Ben is dead, we never saw his body. So who knows, maybe he survived somehow and will be back later on. I highly doubt this but its always fun to imagine.
