Ryker's Island


In the depths of Kaine's cell, he laid in his bed, uncomfortable as could be. Another night of staring blankly at the ceiling, almost as if he was staring into the eyes of all the lives he took, men women, even children staring down at him. They were all crying, repeating "Why?!" or "Please! No!" He shook his head to the vision, seeing his "brother", Ben Reilly staring down at him with an angry expression.

"Remember the day, Kaine? THE DAY YOU KILLED YOUR BROTHER!?" The illusion replayed often, stained into his mind.

"YOU AREN'T MY BROTHER!" The discomforted Kaine Parker shouted back, with a guard watching questionably.

"Remember.... REMEMBER!"

***

Three years ago

"No! NO!" The Jackal repeated in his lair, slamming his fists angrily on his desk. His eyes starred down at his greatest project, Ben Reilly. The Scarlet Spider. It had been a month since the clone was created, sent to replace his genetic template. And now gone. "The Spider must've got in his head... Made him leave... WHY!? WHY WOULD HE ABANDON ME!"

Miles Warren's cries echo'd through the lab, and Kaine stood in the shadows listening. His "brother" left them. Ben Reilly was "The perfect clone", while Kaine and the others were failed experiments. Kaine knew what he had to do, what he had to do to prove to his father that he was better then Ben Reilly... He had to kill his brother.

***

Ben stood on a rooftop, looking out at the city. He felt lost, everything he knew was a lie.

"I'm not Peter Parker... No matter what my father told me... I'm just a tool used to ruin his life." He stared down at his spider-man styled mask, minus the webbing. On his assignment to kill Peter Parker and slip in his place with no one knowing, he learned who he was, his friends, family. He couldn't take that from someone. Unknown to the Jackal, Ben started fighting crime throughout his month of creation. Now finally he had the guts to leave the Jackal, and planned to never return. Just as Ben pulled his mask over his head an unexpected event occurred.

No Caption Provided

"None of us are Peter Parker." Kaine's voice crawled into Ben's ears, right before tackling him from the rooftop. Ben's spider sense was triggered, but he didn't act to it. The two battled in a free-fall, exchanging fists. Ben cocked back his arm and released into Kaine's nose, giving them both room from each other. He then slung a web onto Kaine's chest pulling him into another punch.

"Father will know who is the better son once I bring him your head!" Kaine shouted driving both of his feet into Kaine's gut on his way down to Reilly once more. Scarlet Spider brought up his forearms to block the powerful kick, though still speeding up their fall.

"You can be better than this! All of us, we can be our own men! We all deserve our own lives!" Ben argued webbing both of Kaine's shoulders, then flipping him through the building's window, sending him crashing inside, shards of glass making their marks as they did.

"Enough!" Scarlet Spider protested while standing in the shattered windows frame. He stepped into the dark empty office building and walked over to Kaine, offering his hand to help him up. The "failed" clone accepted the hand, right before Ben's spider sense was triggered. Kaine sent his fist to Ben's Jaw, knocking him off of his feet, then leaping on top of him gripping both hands around his neck, squeezing in all of his hatred and might.

**

As the Jackal requested Kaine, unable to find him for awhile, His most prized creation's dead body fell down to Jackal's feet... Leaving only a look of shock on his face.

"The deed is done, he won't hurt us anymore, Father." Kaine said, staring down at the body with Jackal.

"..." Miles Warren stayed silent at first, his eyes locking with Kaine's soon.

"He was never truly perfect, was he?" Kaine said, proud at first of his accomplishment.

"He was perfect. Nothing like you... A freakish failure!" Jackal exclaimed, his eyes burning in rage.

"I KILLED HIM! That proves I'm worth something!"

"Proves you will never have his heart!" The Jackal said, stepping back. His goblin like posture showing his savage anger.

No Caption Provided

"Finish him."

Jack emerged from the darkness behind Kaine, tightening thick webbing around his throat.

"WITH PLEASURE!" Jack accepted the task, Dragging Kaine away.

During Kaine's struggle he rammed backwards into Jack, leading him into a wall then breaking his grip of the webbing, allowing Kaine to turn around. He then weaved from one of Jack's punches, grabbing the left arm which was launched and used it to pull Jack into Kaine's knee.

Jack leaped backwards after the hit, recovering. The two faced each other with insanity in their eyes. The Degeneration affected all of the clones accept for Ben, who didn't have it, and now he was dead. Jackal watched his two creations fight while holding Ben's body in his arms, cradled to him.

Kaine sent a forceful fist at Jack, who leaped over him and caused Kaine to bash his hand into Laboratory equipment used for Jackal's creation. The control panel's began to spark along with a few others, leading to cause a fire.

"You fool! What have you done!" Jackal said, in tears while holding Ben.

Jack attempted to tackle Kaine into the fire, who instead of being burnt reversed the move and threw Jack inside the flame watching him burn. The fire was spreading quickly due to the machines exploding. As the lab began to fall apart Kaine reached his hand out to his Father who held onto Ben, wishing to save him.

"I'll never go with you!" Jackal refused the hand and kicked Kaine back, just as the ceiling began to collapse.

NOW.

"Wake da' hell up!" The black eyed prison guard commanded from outside the cell.

"What do you want? I was busy having visions, or flashbacks, or whatever you want to call insanity these days." Kaine replied beneath his restraints.

"Yur free." Kaine thought he'd never hear those words, nor did he deserve to hear them.

The cell door opened, and the Guard sent in an extraction team, who then violently transported him to the processing room. Kaine stared at the stranger, dressed in purple, with fine jewelry and a cain.

"Don't damage my stuff!" The plump asian man barked as the guards unshackled Kaine at gun point. "He belong to me now!" He then added.

Kaine was shoved over to the mysterious man who bailed him out, a pimp if Kaine was right. The clone watched as the round man handed the Warden a briefcase.

"All yours, Mr. Isto!" The Warden gratefully accepted after checking to see that all $250,000 was there.

"Excellent!" His bejeweled hands slapped together. "Put my stuff in the car!"

The very confused, and degenerating Kaine was hauled into a purple limo, facing Mr Isto with two beautiful woman by Kaine's side.

"Who are you?" The scarred Kaine questioned, ignoring the fragile female's hands brushing against his chest.

"A business man, Kaine. And we can manage great deal!" Mr Isto answered, with a sinister smile.

"What kind of deal?" Kaine continued.

"The kind that cures degeneration."

@dickgrayson: To be honest, I was never a fan of the clone fiasco that happened to Spider-Man, which had nothing to do with you (or did it?) This reinvention keeps the good core elements and gets rid of the rest and starts afresh. Good work. And it only takes a quarter million to buy a super hero, cool :)

@dickgrayson: great start and really well written. I'm of the same mind as 4donkey on the clone saga but i'm writing about a man in a frog suit.. I look forward to seeing where you take Kaine. I can see a crossover must with BatKevin......

@dickgrayson: Well done! Dude, knocked it out of the park! Flashbacks, strange men, the Jackal, you've taken a horrible part of Spider-Man's life and made it, well readable (The Clone Saga was bad, but not as bad as Maximum Carnage. I stupidly bought ALL the issues only to have Spider-Man make a good bomb...wtf??? I pretty much stopped Spider-Man after that....anyways)

So just so you and I are on the same page with Spider-Man/Scarlet Spider continuity: 3 years ago was the Clone Saga and Ben Reilly is still around right?

Hey @tommythehitman Shadowland was also 3 years ago correct? Just making sure our overall continuity is also correct. Hey @irishlad do we have a MM time line that plots events etc?

Back to you @dickgrayson Love it, must plot crossover, but not just yet and not just with Spider-Man, Dallas Riordan over in Scourge is the unoffical centre of the universe :)

@dickgrayson As I said before pretty awesome, though my heart does weep a little for Ben Reilly xD

Only nitpick I could give you is mind your spelling, it's definitely more polished than most fan-fics but there were a few instances where I saw an error like accept instead of except etc.

I don't mind it though for the most part, you know you've did good when my grammar nazi self comes out.

@batkevin74 nope there isn't though it is an idea.

@batkevin74: Shadowland was 3 years ago. I'm trying to keep it in order of the events as it goes Fear Itself, AVX and ...age of ultron.

@dickgrayson: "Kaine sent his fist to Ben's Jaw, knocking him off of his feet, then leaping on top of him gripping both hands around his neck, squeezing in all of his hatred and might" Or maybe you killed him! :) I don't mind if Ben is dead or alive...or maybe just not worry him until if or when we need him. I think we leave Ben alone as we've got Peter & Kaine, and Spidercide is about to return, madre dios we're having our own Clone Saga and you're only on issue #1 and me on #3 of Spider-Man!

@tommythehitman: Okay...I'm send a PM...Avengers Vs Xmen was one of the worst multi-part retarded crossovers I've ever started, couldnt get past issue one where Cyclops hits first for NO GODDAM REASON!.....I'll send you a PM
