The Spectacular Scarlet Spider is a comic book series starring the Scarlet Spider published by Marvel Comics for two issues from November 1995 to December 1995.

The book was a direct continuation, in terms of creative teams and storylines, of the The Spectacular Spider-Man series which the title temporarily replaced for two months between issues 229 and 230.

It was one of four briefly published books which featured the character. The others were The Amazing Scarlet Spider, Scarlet Spider, and Web of Scarlet Spider.

The series began when, as part of the controversial Clone Saga, Peter Parker gave up being Spider-Man to retire with his pregnant wife, and the Scarlet Spider took on his duties. The title returned to its old title and numbering when Ben Reilly took on the Spider-Man name.

The writer of the two issues was Todd DeZago and the penciller was Sal Buscema.

The first issue is notable for being the first appearance of Override.

Both issues are collected in Spider-Man: The Complete Ben Reilly Epic Book 1.
