Review: Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #1

This issue opens up with The Scarlet Spider on the statue of liberty talking to one of his imaginary selvs. What. The. Fuck. Is. Going. On? Like what kinda comicbook is this gonna be? Funny, scary, villain gone good, or superhero? Like pick one and stick with it. Next we see him stop a chick from being robbed. If the voices in his head that he talks to weren't enough to prove that he's crazy then him asking the robber to have something more threatening then a knife definitely proves he's crazy. Instead of Uncle Ben being shot we see the robber get shot. I find it funny how the woman he saves has red hair and that her name is Mandy. Let me guess Ben Reilly and Mandy are gonna get together in a future issue, then later on they'll get married and after that they'll sell their marriage to the devil. I sure hope that's what happens. Later on we see Kaine dress like the jackel just to get information from one of the people who used to work for him... Um isn't Kaine supposed to be a superhero like Spider-Man? Anyways next we see Ben Reilly go to a casino where he meets an old lady named June who loves to gamble so much that her husband came looking for her then decided to fuck off when Ben Reilly said he was her nephew. Um dude you've been married to this woman for years so why'd you bail when he said he was her nephew even though you clearly knew he wasn't. Also why does Ben Reilly want June to be an aunt. Seems like sometimes he's trying to be Deadpool and other times he's trying to be like Peter Parker. Just fucking decide even though you're nither one. Do armed men normally rob casinos in las vegas? If so couldn't they just break the machines somehow and get all the money from those machines that clearly have money in them? Anyways shit hits the fan. Aunt June tells people to shut up and this issue ends with Ben Reilly getting a gun in the face. Artwork was ok. The story was hella confusing so I give this issue a 7 out of 10. Things I learned from this issue. If you walk into a casino and see an old lady gambling while her husband tells at her just go up and tell him that you're her nephew and he'll gladly fuck off.
