New Spider-Man Trailer Reveals Alternate Costume

Swing with the Scarlet Spider in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

Activision released a new trailer for Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions that shows off the Scarlet Spider alternate costume, which appears to be usable in the Amazing Spider-Man segment of the game.

In the comics, Scarlet Spider was a clone of Peter Parker named Ben Reilly, a by-product of the infamous Clone Saga.

It is currently unknown if this costume will be unlocked in gameplay or downloadable. If it's downloadable, it is very unlikely that Wii gamers will even see it.


I was an avid comic reader back when the Scarlet Spider was introduced. I always liked the costume, Ben Reilly's divergent attitude (he's more of an asshole than Peter Parker, but still a good guy at heart), and the slightly different fighting style. Hopefully the game will include Ben's "Impact Webbing" that he designed specially for his suit's web shooters.

Wow, Ben Reilly ftw! I also was a huge Spider-Man comic reader back at the clone saga, I still have the Scarlet Spider first appearances, before he got his own comic.

Edit: Eh, that Scarlet Spider suit doesn't look right. Can't point my finger at it, but somethings weird.

Glad to know that I wasn't the only Scarlet Spider fan around here. Wonder if they considered his version of Spider-Man's costume as another alternate.
