SCARLET SPIDER Going Back To Classic Costume

"Ben Reilly is returning to the living - and to his most popular mantle - beginning in April's Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #1, and now Marvel has revealed to Newsarama that by the time the first arc is complete, he will revert back to his classic, original costume. This costume change isn't back-tracking the creators of the book according to Marvel, but rather a story-driven change leading Reilly back to the hoodie."


"The issue will be oversized, include backup stories, and see original Venom host Eddie Brock take back the symbiote, meaning that current host Lee Price will part ways with the suit he only just got. But according to Marvel editor Devin Lewis, Lee losing the symbiote and becoming an antagonist for Brock always part of the plan."

Not sure if I buy it not being backtracking for the former, and for the latter I have to wonder if any other titles will return to legacy numbering.

They still haven't really explained how Flash lost the suit... and why they had to go back to Eddie. I liked the new status quo just fine.

It's going to be revealed in a back-up story for 150.

So, he got it back after it skedaddled during Flash's space adventures? Had to cancel my Unlimited before that got put up there.

My guess: everyone hated the new costume.

Why do they need Eddie back with the symbiote? If he's that popular a character, he shouldn't need it.

I honestly don't remember what its from, but that's supposed to be Jesus, and Spiderman rolled the rock away from his tomb. Alive Jesus is nekkid Jesus, apparently!

Eddie Brock has a pretty stupid reason to hate Spider-Man. "I was fooled by the guy pretending to be the SIn-Eater, and then Spider-Man captured the real Sin-Eater!"

The "Official Handbook" 1989 Edition speculated that Eddie's intense hatred for Spider-Man drove the symbiote insane, and that the power of the symbiote also affected Eddie's sanity.

Why can't it just be a new symbiote? Another offspring? Do we have to strip Thompson of what was potentially interesting just to harken back to something over twenty years ago?

Brock's already bonded to Toxin, so they wouldn't really need a new one. But I guess they just don't have faith that he could sustain a comic on his own.

At the very least, Venom 150 will have more credence to its numbering than Thor 600 (which was calculated including issues of Journey into Mystery that didn't have Thor in them).

I always liked the Scarlet Spider costume but I never understood the ankle bracelets.

They appear to be pouches ....

... so I'm going to say it's a dumb 90's fashion statement.

Aww. I liked the costume he had when he took over being Spider-Man full time.

Oh man, I am SO glad that everything is going back to normal and the status quo is resuming. You have no idea how tiring it was to have to look at all of these new and interesting ideas come to life.

Ben Reilly will be the hoodie? So he's the Bill Belichick of Spider-Men?
