You're right about this. Kaine acted like he did during the first part of the Clone Saga because he did believe until Norman came back that Peter was the sucessful clone, and Kaine hated Ben because he was the original Parker.
| > Kaine is literally â€œSpider-Man gone wrongâ€. Heâ€™s also a bit of a mystery since his motivations changed every time there was a revelation about who the real Peter was. How much did he really know anyway? Did he want to protect Peter because he thought they were clone brothers? Did he hate Ben because he believed him to be the original? Was it the other way around (hating Ben because he was the Jackalâ€™s â€œfavored sonâ€, ect)? |
| > The Jackal is worth mentioning. Granted he was a 70s character but he didnâ€™t come into his own until post-Venom. While not nearly as big a name, I didnâ€™t really appreciate the Looter until the Spider-Ben era.|
