COMICS: Scarlet Spider And Superior Spider-Man Come To Blows In "Sibling Rivalry" Crossover
Before being cured by Peter Parker, Kaine was responsible for killing Doctor Octopus by breaking his neck with his bare hands. For that reason, we should probably expect to see the Scarlet Spider come to blows with the Superior Spider-Man in the "Sibling Rivalry" crossover event this summer!
This August, Kaine Parker will be reunited with his "brother" in a two-part crossover which will take place across Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #2 and Scarlet Spider #20. Written by Chris Yost, "Sibling Rivalry" will feature Kaine coming face to face with Peter. However, what he doesn't know is that Doctor Octopus is now in control of Peter's body as the Superior Spider-Man! Talking to Marvel.com, Yost had this to say about what happens when they first meet up. "I would say within the first five pages of them meeting, the Superior Spider-Man throws Kaine out a window. So… [Laughs] But you're right. Up until now, Ock has done pretty well at hiding in Spider-Man's skin. No one has caught wind of it. Everybody knows something's different, but it's more like an attitude change, or an evolution in thinking. "He's grown up! He's tougher!" But with Kaine—Ock and Kaine do have a history. I think for the first time, you're going to see something very different out of the Superior Spider-Man." Adding that Kaine decided to check in on Peter after seeing the news reports about him viciously beating his enemies, the writer revealed that this arc will also see the return of The Jackal! "The Jackal interrupts this great confrontation between the Spiders. In Avenging Spider-Man #16, you saw that he's up to something. He raided Mister Sinister's genetic warehouse and he created some kind of mutant-spider hybrid. This is the next step of that plan. He's coming after Spider-Man for mysterious reasons."
