Well since there’s lots of love for Spidey here in the Tattooverse, I figured I’d add to my collection of builds and do up the original Scarlet Spider.
Overall there is almost no difference between Scarlet & Spidey, basically it comes down to attack & defense, skill ranks and the lack of some feats. All things that Spidey gained as a result of his time as the original web-slinger, where Scarlet makes up for the differences is his development of new web-shooters (the new “twist of the wrist” trigger, impact webbing & stingers
) which give Scarlet some other options in a fight that Spidey doesn’t have.
Once the new cost of the web-shooters are figured in Scarlet comes in only a few points under Spidey which really surprised me as I thought the point cost difference would be a bit more.
Then once I thought about it most of the people in Marvel didn’t realize that it was an entirely new Spider-Man once Ben Reilly took over, they simply thought Spidey had donned a new suit & sported some new gear. The only people who noticed the difference were Johnny Storm, Silver Sable (and with her at the time Sandman
), and Venom (since the symbiote recognized the differences between Ben & Peter
). So the lack of a huge point difference isn’t really as bad a thing as I originally thought.
Deep secret sharing time here……Warning: Slight rant-like statements below, read at your own risk....
I actually liked when Ben Reilly took over as Spider-Man.
I thought it was a seriously cool idea that he was the original Spidey and had been tricked into thinking he was the clone and went off to find his own life only to come back and return to his original identity. I was tired of having to read pretty much every Spidey title to understand what was going on in any single series, so when the Spidey-line was trimmed down to only a couple series with a whole new background cast introduced that didn’t have all the baggage of the older cast, though some of older cast still came around though they made sense.
Anyways, thus endth the touchy-feely, rant-like part of the post…(sorry for the soapbox)
