how great would it be to see all 3 together at thanksgiving trying to connect as brothers - maybe something happens and they all have to team up too?
Or they could just drop the Ben and Kaine identities, and all take turns being Peter. Like in that movie, Multiplicity.
It's not going to be Ben. Ben is my favorite character, but he's not coming back. Ever. It sucks, but it's a fact. All of the writers seem to agree in interviews saying that: "Ben's story is told"...
One clone is more than enough. As long as Kaine is alive, Ben should stay as a molten pile of goop.
Ben was relevant in the context of the clone saga,which was not even that much of a good story imo.
Now i dont see much of a point to the return of Ben.
In fact there should be a rule that the Benīs of Spider-Man stories (Ben Reilly and Uncle Ben) should not resurect.
Pull List:New Avengers,Thor,Superior Spider-Man,Mighty Avengers,Swamp Thing,Daredevil,Uncanny Avengers,Marvel Knights Spider-Man,Superior Foes of Spider-Man.
I always think it might be cool in a few years to have Ben as a supporting character in Kaine's book.
[badjoke]Can we see Ben Reilly return? Obviously. It would be a comic book, and not a radio drama.[/badjoke]
What Would Spidey Do?
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Ricochet or Prodigy. I know Slott mentioned it was someone who had a history concerning Spider-Man, and seeing as the Miguel O'Hara rumor's been disproved, those are my top two guesses.
I want to see Ben pop up, in the most 90'sish representing Spider-man costume that could possibly be designed, and stop SuSpiderman as he is about to do something drastic like kill a villain. Ben will yell out "You are NOT who you proclaim to be! There is nothing Superior about you!" and save the day.
I can picture this already
There will be manly tears shed
I would LOVE that!
I'm a huge Ben Reilly fan and loved his time as Spider-man back in the day.
But, I'm probably one of the few who didn't hate the Clone saga :)
Hey, you never know, he wasn't in heaven with everyone else. Unless, they are going to say that Clones don't have souls... but then in Venom, X-23 got confirmed by Blackheart that she has a soul or was that a lie? So whatever.
There is a easy way to write that he is still alive too. That wasn't him that died but another clone of him and you can't clone from a clone and which is why he degenerated instead of just dying cause he was a dying clone anyways cause the other clones of Peter Parker died and they didn't degenerate like Ben did after the goblin Glider ran into him. The Jackal could still have him cause he is the only perfect clone of Peter Parker.
I was happy when they brought Kaine back and I will be happier if they bring Ben back :D
How can Ben come back when he turned into dust?
I mean which would be better, for him to remain dead or for a terrible story that won't make any sense to be done to bring him back?
I think the character would be more honored to remain dead under the batting average of bad stories that Marvel has been famous for lately.
