Ben Reilly Will Become Spider-Man

Marvel just announced a new chapter in Peter’s life and it looks like Ben Reilly (Scarlet Spider, clone of Peter Parker) is getting ready to take the mantle of Spider-Man in his hands to help Peter.

Amazing Spider-Man will return with a new story in October and 4 writers : Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar, Patrick Gleason, and Zeb Wells will start writing Spider-Man. This saga will begin with The Amazing Spider-Man #75 with the return of Ben Reilly. Ben will return to take back the mantle of Spider-Man and he will be determined to become the best version of Spider-Man ever was. We also saw in the new teaser that Peter has injuries so this might also mean that Ben is trying to be Spider-Man while Peter can’t because of his injuries.

Here is what Spider-Man Editor Nick Lowe said about this story :

“The whole point of working on Spider-Man is trying to put new unliftable weights on top of him—physical, metaphysical, emotional, psychological—and seeing if he can lift them. But what if that weight truly is too heavy? What if someone with the exact same skills and formative years could do better? Ben Reilly is back and, with Aunt May and Uncle Ben’s lessons in the back of HIS mind as well, he’s here to step in where Peter Parker failed. Can he accomplish things the original Spider-Man never could? These questions are what sold me on this story.

“When Zeb Wells started building this story it became apparent that it needed a narrative velocity and a team of the best of the best to make it happen. So we gathered some of the greatest writers and artists in comics to join us and the story got even better and bigger and more surprising.”

I think this story might be really good because we saw Daredevil dealing with injuries and trying to get back up in his series and it worked really well, I believe Spider-Man stories are stories about getting back up and never giving up even that things get really hard and complicated sometimes. I love Ben Reilly too and I think he is an amazing character and his death was iconic, writers overused him and messed with his character but he can become a good character again with this series and I will be waiting to see it.
