Spider-Man: Ben Reilly returns in Scarlet Spider #21?

Comic book covers have been known to have truth or "red herring" moments to them, but Spider-Man fans who've kept up with the web-slinger's adventures over the years may want to take a look at this one for an upcoming issue of "Scarlet Spider".

Yes. It's him apparently. Peter Parker's clone and the 90's Spider-Man, Ben Reilly, apparently back from the dead and facing the new and current Scarlet Spider, Kaine. Marvel Comics artist Ryan Stegman recently revealed via his deviantArt the cover to "Scarlet Spider #21", and it shows Mr. Reilly back as the first Scarlet Spider.

While the original Peter is currently "gone" and Otto "Doc Ock" Octavius taking over his life in the pages of "Superior Spider-Man", ghosts from the 90's "Clone Saga" appear to be coming back, with this cover to Scarlet Spider #21 seemingly confirming the original Scarlet Spider's return with his trademark hoodie blue jacket and impact webbing to boot. Nobody can tell what's in store for Kaine as he faces his "brother", but it could be something else happening entirely in the issue. We'll just have to wait and see when it comes out.
