Peter David & Mark Bagley return BEN REILLY to his SCARLET SPIDER roots

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Ben Riley is the clone The Jackal made, who thought he was Peter Parker, then thought he was a clone, then died, then was back, then thought he was Peter again, then found out he was a clone, then died, then came back and  became The Jackal. Well, in a semi-spoiler for the current CLONE CONSPIRACY storyline in Dan Slott’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Marvel has revealed that after that wraps up, Ben Riley (or a clone thereof) will pick back up his old mantle of SCARLET SPIDER for a new ongoing by fan favorites Peter David and Mark Bagley.

Marvel even provided an image, featuring the Scarlet Spider’s new look, a sleeker variation on his 90’s outfit. Oh, and his mask smiles.

BEN REILLY: THE SCARLET SPIDER Returns For All-New Series!

The Fan-Favorite Character Goes Solo in April

New York, NY—January 9th, 2017 — This April, one of the most controversial characters in Marvel history returns to don the mask (and hoodie!) once more. Today, Marvel is pleased to announceBEN REILLY: THE SCARLET SPIDER #1 – the new series from New York Times Bestselling creators Peter David (Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099) and Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man, All-New X-Men)! That’s right, Ben Reilly is webslinging his way back into comic shops everywhere later this year and he’s bringing two of the most accomplished & beloved Spider-Man creators of all-time with him! Only question is – will it be as a hero…or a villain?

It was the twist that shocked the world. Ben Reilly had returned, but not as he once was. Twisted and manipulated by the villainous Jackal, the fallen clone is out to break the cycle, and reclaim his destiny. Not as Peter Parker’s clone – but as his own man. Will suiting up once more as the Scarlet Spider be enough to outrun his personal demons? All while being able to stay one step ahead of the man hunting him – Kaine Parker – the former Scarlet Spider?!

“This book is not your usual Spider-Fare,” says Executive Editor, VP of Content & Digital Publishing Nick Lowe. “Peter David and Mark Bagley are taking this character into uncharted territory that’s both rip-roaring and troubling.”

His old life is over. It’s time for a new beginning. But can you ever truly outrun your past? Find out as the iconic fan-favorite character returns to the fore once again in BEN REILLY: THE SCARLET SPIDER #1 – coming this April!
