Hero Datafiles – Scarlet Spider

Happy Friday! Here’s a second post from guest-blogger zero. This time he offers another hero datafile that I haven’t seen elsewhere on the net. Coincidentally, it’s also another clone.  Enjoy! ~ Adam

Hi I’m zero aka cero and here is a datafile for the Scarlet Spider. I decided to make the Scarlet Spider based on the first issue in his series and he took a bit of time to get right due to the difference in powers from Peter Parker. I used similar design methods as I used to adapt Wolverine for the X-23 datafile, but I made Kaine here specifically based on his Scarlet Spider persona and used only the current miniseries issues as a base.
