Scarlet Spider Goes Through a "Rebirth"; Returns to Classic Costume!

Scarlet Spider Goes Through a

Due to the amazingly "popular" reaction his new costume got, Ben Reilly will be returning to his classic look at the end of the first arc.



The moment we all saw the new look Ben Reilly (yes they actually brought him back. Yes, they absolutely ruined him. But more on that later for a future Durnkin Reveewz) would be sporting in the Scarlet Spider ongoing that's coming out April 26.  We all had the same reaction:

But seriously, Marvel is actually claiming that this was completely the plan. That they knew this costume design absolutely sucked so bad that they had to replace it at the end of the first arc and isn't them doing their own Rebirth. Yes, they are not back-tracking at all because of how godawful the new costume was. In fact, that at the conclusion of the first story Reilly will realize, "WHAT THE HELL AM I ON?! THIS COSTUME MAKES ME LOOK LIKE SPIDERCIDE 2.0!!" then don his old costume. Then purge the "new" costume making us all just remember that awkward time of Ben's new look. Seriously.

Yes, they are not back-tracking at all because of how godawful the new costume was. Seriously. Stop laughing. I can hear the not-so-restrained chuckles of you damn readers.  In fact, Marvel is so serious that they even had artist Mark Bagley (the designer of both costumes. Yes, I know he must have dabbled in my personal liquor stash somehow) redo the cover to #1 with now the classic costume replacing the godawful other one (Newsarama got the reveal because CBR is probably still near the toilet dry heaving from the original exclusive).

But never fear! If you wanted to remember how badly the new costume was. Marvel also revealed this variant cover to #1!

I'm sorry. It's just that costume. They really thought THAT THING was a good idea? Sometimes I wonder if some editor at Marvel drinks worse than me? It would explain many things. Wait. This means I'm gonna have to buy and this now doesn't it? DAMMIT!
FUCK!!
