Kaine gets his looks from Peter. I maintain that Reilly was Peter:Interrupted. What Peter could have been (Specifically the Reilly in Spider-Verse), if he cast off his guilt. Because really, the guilt complex is old, tired, and extremely unwelcome in my opinion. Have the character fucking grow and heal, damn it.
It pains me to say that my favorite character's clones make a better him than him most of the time.
