Marvel Replaces Bad New Costume With Bad Original Costume

In a rare “Yeah okay, we f’d up” moment of truth, Marvel has acknowledged the flack over the re-designed clone costume being featured in Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #1.

Via Newsarama, Mark Bagley has redrawn the original image (which drew widespread LOL comments across the web) to switch it out in favor of Ben Reilly’s equally bad original costume. They also explain that Marvel says the costume change back to the hoodie is story driven and will be complete by the end of the first arc.

Ben Reilly’s clone will be sifting his way back to you one grain at a time starting in April.
