    Didn’t we just see a thread like this yesterday?

    Anyway, Peter to have a 30th birthday lol. And never to be depicted incompetently again. He can be outmatched or defeated, but stop portraying him...

    Another review of Ben Reilly #1. The reviewer heaps praise on the book (and seems to have a good understanding of Ben himself), and doesn’t point out any flaws, but then gives the book an 8/10. I...

    OMD definitively undone or resolved. That’s the biggest thing. Everything else is window dressing.

    At one point long ago, I wanted Peter to recover Baby May, but it’s just been too many decades...

    Jenkins and Buckingham had one of the most underrated runs of all time. Of course there’s the human interest issues, like the Uncle Ben issue and the even better one with the neglected Black kid who...

    He’s 28-30. I couldn’t give a fig what some throwaway lines say. First they contradict other lines, like Peter celebrating his 28th birthday in ASM Vol. 3, and second there’s no way you’re fitting...

    It’s been established that Beyond is f***ing with Ben’s memory, so there’s an easy out.

    Besides, when Ben (stupidly) gave Otto the benefit of the doubt last issue, Otto used that to his...

    Seems pretty realistic. There’s a sub-Reddit or Facebook group for almost every TV show, pop star, fictional character, etc. you can think of. They may not be big fandoms, but if superheroes were...

    How is Ben being rightfully pissed off a “character assassination”? We haven’t even seen how the issue plays out. As mentioned, his anger seems pretty in-character with past acts of aggression by the...

    I don’t see it like that. When Peter AND Ben are messed with, they both lose it a bit (for Peter, not just the “I AM THE SPIDER” stuff from the 90s, but also ‘Back in Black’, ‘Grim Hunt’, ‘Death of...

    He also desperately seeks validation from others though. Take Peter’s abandonment issues (from his parents leaving him) and times that by a hundred (from all of Ben’s friends/family/support structure...

    Ah that’s right. I suppose that’s something the Kaine SS book had in common with the Ben SS book. Rotating artists near the end of the run. Although the art in Ben’s book got even more scattershot...

    At least back then they were acknowledging the clone saga again. Imagine if someone went back to 1999 or 2000 when Marvel was still too scared to even utter the word “clone” in the books and told you...

    No one is asking how can Digger possibly be alive…? It’s been over a decade since I read that story, but didn’t Pete basically disintegrate him?

    Anyway, I like him so I’m happy to see him back....

    This looks good. So happy to see Wells back. Art is good too.

    Is Hellbomb an established character, and someone Wells came up with here to be Ben’s punching bag?

    For better or worse, that’s vintage 90s JMD narration (even with a second deeper voice in parentheses). I love JMD and pumped to see him back, but even back during his SPEC and ASM runs I thought he...

    Give her a Theranos Elizabeth Holmes vibe. Could work.

    Yes, as I already mentioned in the preview thread, I enjoyed the issue as well. Ziglar is the best Beyond writer after Zeb Wells imo. Thought...

    Ben is competent, actually uses Beyond gadgetry, and finds out how Beyond is using him. So now he will be working against Beyond from the inside....

    No, no, no, keep the bad man away. As much as I’m lukewarm on Spidey these days, just seeing Papa Smurf’s mug reminds me how much worse things used to be. I don’t think everything he did was bad, but...

    The problem with it is it undoes years (decades, really) of character building for Spider-Man. He was taken very seriously by other heroes… especially in the 80s, 90s and 00s. Something happened...

    Well… it’s still MUCH better than BR:SS, but yes it is disappointing. Unlike PAD’s dreck, at least Ben here is (mostly) in character… aside from being super incompetent.
