Scarlet Spider | Comics

Biochemistry professor Miles Warren had a strong romantic pull over Peter Parker’s then love interest Gwen Stacy. When she died (Death of the Stacys) Warren gone mad thinking Spider-Man was solely responsible for this incident and took the identity of The Jackal to make Spidey’s life miserable. First, he made a clone of Peter Parker named Kaine, then he cloned Gwen Stacy and created another clone named Ben Reilly.

He allied himself with Green Goblin and ushered Clone Saga. Jackal fooled Peter to believe that he is a clone and Ben is the real deal but when the former died, everyone realized Jackal’s deception. Kaine believed Peter to be a clone and used to roam New York as a serial killer who tried to frame Ben Reilly for the murders.

After Ben’s demise, Peter becomes Spider-Man again and Kaine Parker lived. He sacrifices himself during the “Grim Hunt” when Alyosha and Ana Kravinoff came looking for Spider-Man to resurrect Kraven through a ritual. Kaine eventually came back to life as a six-legged freak Tarantula during “Spider-Island” event and ended the crisis.

He becomes Scarlet Spider with all the power but none of the responsibility. Alongside Venom, Kaine tangled with Carnage upon his return (Minimum Carnage), fought the Assassins Guild, bested the X-Men and teamed up with Wolverine. Scarlet Spider allied himself with the New Warriors and later traveled to Spider-Verse to put an end to the reign of Morlun and The Inheritors alongside the Spider-Men of Multiverse.

Originated from the idea of Spider-Man, a clone version of the character was introduced by Terry Kavanagh and Steven Butler on the pages of Marvel Comics and the alias ‘Scarlet Spider’ was first used by Peter Parker’s clone Ben Reilly in 1994. Then Joe Wade assumed the name upon becoming an evil cybernetic version of it and then Peter himself had taken the role briefly.

Later a team of three Michael Van Patrick clones acted as Scarlet Spiders to form "Red Team" for The Initiative and finally Kaine Parker took the mantle in his own monthly ongoing series for good. The character had a short lived ongoing series titled ‘The Amazing Scarlet Spider’ back in 1995 and later another series was launched in 2012 featuring Kaine Parker, who at one point even met with the Superior Spider-Man during 'Sibling Rivalry'.
