Scarlet Spider #19

Scarlet Spider #19Sometimes you just have to kill a god. The Scarlet Spider and Wolverine‘s team-up comes to and as the two murderers turned heroes take on not only Bella Donna and the Assassins Guild but the immortal Candra who wishes to feed of the bones of both men.

The uneasy alliance between the two lasts through the fighting, but Wolverine is less than pleased with the methods Kaine uses to end the war with the Assassins Guild as he serves the group to the Kingpin on a silver platter. Wolverine’s chastising aside, Kaine is willing to pay whatever price necessary for solving his problem with the Guild and keeping Aracely (who the X-Men seem to be in a great hurry to get rid of) safe at least for the foreseeable future.

Although I don’t see Kaine getting invited back to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning for high tea any time soon, the forced team-up with two of Marvel’s deadliest heroes works well (and allows for plenty of Kaine’s sardonic narration which writer Christopher Yost does so well). Kaine’s deal with the Kingpin also foreshadows new trouble for the hero sometime down the line. Worth a look.
