Kaine is Scarlet Spider. Yost made us believe it. What makes Kaine such an interesting character?

He is a hero, but doesn't want people saying/believing he is a hero. He's genuinely trying to figure out who he really is, and he is his own biggest enemy so far.

Who else is like that?

In my opinion its that he is Peter without the good upbringing. He's Spider-man without Uncle Ben's set of principles and his own outlook on how things should be done. The main thing I find interesting that he is the what If? version of Peter but also a unique character in his own right.

@Strider92: I must admit I love your spidey-related comments. They're kind of unique. Honestly.

@Phaedrusgr: Why thank you :). The Spider-Brothers are my favorite characters in comics (aside from Backlash who is also awesome) so i'm generally motivated to make any point about them as clear as possible.

What makes him interesting for me is the fact that he kind of the bad side of Peter.He is not evil but he just doesn't have such high morals as him.

It would have worked better if they didn't do this octospidey thing. They are pretty much the same now, A spider-man who didn't have a good up bringing. I actually think Kaine is doing a better job at controlling his violent tendencies better than Ock
