    Instead I could see one of the clones becoming a villain. Not a full-on duplicate to Miles like Ben (and late Kaine was made to be) but one of the deformed clones that managed to gain autonomy and is resentful of all the experimentation he went through while Miles escaped.

    Also what's with the knee-jerk reactions? Like do people actually remember what was actually wrong with the OG Clone Saga? It wasn't necessarily the story as a concept more so that they dragged the damn thing on for two years, changed storylines at the fly, kept introducing more new characters as the story kept changing, and finally tried to use the storyline as a backdoor method to reset the Spider-Marriage. I severely doubt Saladin's storyline is going to have anywhere near that amount of baggage. lol

    Both of those are perfectly good and valid points. I definitely lean toward the latter, but as someone who actually liked the Scarlet Spider(s), I agree, too, that it wasn't the existence or presence of clones that necessarily made the 90s Clone Saga bad. I'd even add that the greed of Marvel Comics' marketing division, seeing the initial profits from the 90s Clone Saga, had a heavy part in pretty much everything that went wrong there.

    I think it would've been cool to do Miles' own Sinister Six story for the ten year anniversary but Bendis kind of wasted that in his last arc.

    That's better since it's not something that immediately attracts ire, but even then I'd still want something wholly original for Miles. So no clones, symbiotes, goblins, etc. involved. Plus I don't think I was particularly big on the Sinister Six idea even back then and that wasn't even for a special occasion, besides being Bendis' final arc.

    Spencer kind of beat people to the punch with the Sinister Syndicate being a thing now. Though I have to imagine that Bombshell's mom will eventually join up with that group next time she gets out of jail.

    Here's a WIP Carmen Carnero posted on her Instagram. I remember in my last post I said my only real nitpick on her depiction of Miles was how inconsistent she drew his new hairstyle and made it look so close to his old one. Well this WIP has shut my mouth and I couldn't be happier.
