Kaine is back in the game and trying to stay sane as he plays the hero on the road.  How's that gonna work out for him?

Scarlet Spider #1

Chris Yost did some amazing work with Fear Itself: Spider-Man, and his reward is his own ongoing Spider-title.  This isn't the return of Ben Reilly, but the ongoing adventures of the failed spider-clone Kaine, having been cured of his cellular degeneration scarring and the resultant brain damage that made him dangerous in a very deadly way.  Or so we hope.  First order of business is apparently a buzzcut, to shake that crazy right out of his hair.

Kaine may have helped save New York from becoming Spider Island, but now he's on the run in Texas and forced to deal with a crime syndicate with his violent methods. 

Scarlet Spider is a book that can deal with a character much like Peter Parker but at darker, more difficult place in his life,” said Marvel Senior Editor Stephen Wacker. “The violent choices he’s made through years of struggle – the sins of youth, so to speak – have come at a brutal cost. He may hope that the things he’s done will be left to the dusty, yellowed pages of history, but someone ALWAYS remembers who you used to be.”
