    The spider-sense thing aside, I think Cantwell did a good job finding Ben's voice. His dialogue felt authentic.

    Also, I tweeted with Cantwell a bit the other day. He told me Ben's appearing in Iron Man simply because he loves the character.

    A fair point there, and the same thing has happened with Peter in the past, so it's not like we can hold this against Ben or the writer.

He’s not treated as a joke and is shown to be pretty righteous and selfless like a hero should act. The only minor nitpick is his spider sense isn’t quite depicted correctly (Ben was saved from the explosion by another character. When yet another character asks him why his SS didn’t warn him, he says it was too distracted by the other henchmen on their tails to detect the bomb. In actuality, both Peter and Ben’s SS has been shown in the past to be a lot more sensitive and able to distinguish between specific threats... like I said, no biggie.)

    I haven't read this issue or the prior one for that matter because I get Iron Man through a subscription and the issues take forever to reach me due to COVID wreaking havoc with the USPS but all this sounds great and hopefully there's more writers out there like Cantwell who like the character and want to utilize him in however big or small a capacity there is available so long as it's a more positive than the PAD run.

    Yes, I didnít mean to make a big deal about the spider sense. I was overall very happy with the respectful way Ben was portrayed. If Cantwell likes the character, Iíd be interested in him doing a Ben series one day. The problem with PAD was heís a good writer (well... most of the time), but he had no love for Ben and no understanding of him and he was kind of given the book instead of wanting to be on it.

    The darker shading on Ben's costume looks so good. And the shape of the eye lenses is excellent as well.

    It's like the first time the costume has really looked the way it should since its original 90s appearances.

    I really don't get why people complain about Cantwell's run. Granted, I'm not a huge IM reader (although I have read his classic arcs like Armor Wars, Demon in a Bottle, Extremis, etc.), but from the few issues I've read with Scarlet it seems like a solid and engaging story arc. I started just picking this up for Ben, but now I am genuinely interested in the other characters and story. Heck, maybe I'll keep reading even after Ben's guest role ends.

    might have something to do with they way he portrayed Cardiac in issue 2 or 3, he was a domestic terrorist who was willing to kill innocents which rubbed people the wrong way, athough Cantell's Dr Doom 10 issue series was nominated of a Eisner.

    Besides Cardiac, some people have an issue with how Cantwell has chosen to address the longstanding flaws, such as they are, in Tony Stark's character and methods by having almost everyone in-series constantly questioning his character and the motives behind his actions. Granted, if Tony had had some semblance of a reality check on how his actions and methods were coming off to people, maybe stuff like Armor Wars (to say nothing of later things like Civil War, which also screwed over Spider-Man in a big way) wouldn't have happened or could have been mitigated. Going back to Cardiac, yeah, portraying the anti-hero who'd always fought against corrupt corporate actors who used their wealth, power, and influence to skirt the law and avoid due punishment for ruining the lives of others for the sake of profit as a crazed terrorist willing to threaten innocents was not a good look, to say the least.

    Just thinking will this be Ben's first time in space? I don't think he's been off world before.

    I just had a Ben Reilly related Mandela Effect.

    I used to like documenting references of Ben Reilly (before he came back and when references to him and the clone saga were rare) and I was sure the BND storyline 'Sometimes it Snows in April' (ASM 556-557) had a freezing Spidey wishing for the Scarlet Spider sweatshirt to keep him warm. But I just reread it and I didn't see any such reference. Am I crazy? Did I imagine this? Or did I overlook it during my reread?
