Marvel Comics April 2017 Solicitations Spoilers: Ben Reilly Scarlet Spider #1 Cover Tweaks Mask After Complaints?

Marvel Comics April 2017 Solicitations Spoilers for Ben Reilly Scarlet Spider-Man #1.

Much was made of the costume of Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider spinning out of Amazing Spider-Man’s Dead No More event: The Clone Conspiracy.

While fans were largely happy to see Ben back as a seeming hero, fans were also upset that the announcement of this new Marvel Mow 2017 ongoing series spoiled the end of The Clone Conspiracy on one hand and on the other hand gave Reilly a silly costume with a useless hood and a mask that shows off his mouth.

Well that cover that caused so much debate online remains as a variant for Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #1.

However, the main cover shows a different mask without showing Ben’s mouth, but the hood remains.

Solicitation follows.
