Despite his plans to take the money and run Kaine finds himself in Houston protecting a young woman, the lone surviving victim of a human trafficking ring the new Scarlet Spider uncovered last issue.
The Scarlet Spider finds himself fighting a fire-controlling assassin intent on killling the girl and anyone else in his way. Despite all his denials Kaine proves to be a hero, not a killer, by saving the woman and deciding to stay in Houston (at least for the time being).
Although we get more narration into Kaine’s past we sadly don’t get another flashback of the original Scarlet Spider this time around. However, the two issues do a pretty good job reintroducing and establishing Kaine as a new hero in the Marvel Universe. Worth a look.
