    That actually sounds cool and hey, if you're going to riff off a Flash story it might as well be the greatest Flash story ever. The Return of Barry Allen is phenomenal.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    if they did go that route and had him be ben that would explain all his weird behaviour during the clone conspiracy and PAD's run and also clear the room for the return of "actual ben".

    convoluted? not much more than anything else in the funny books.



    @hypnohustler did yost ever reveal his plans with spidercide? i think you could do one really interesting story with him but then you'd want to kill him off or send him back to limbo.
    HmmnÖ this will sound crazy, but I actually think I read that fanfic. Was it posted on a Ben Reilly fan site? If itís what I think it was, it was pretty good!

    this is true. you could say the story was cloned, even.

    ha, yeah it was. i think it was hosted on the main ben reilly page at the time as well as "starving writer's" page from the alvaro boards (i think) and also on the boards themselves.

    and thanks, mate... appreciate it.

    it was my first and last fanfic and the feedback/criticism i got in it helped me move into some professional writing gigs. but i think at that time, a lot of us were just trying to fill that ben-shaped gap in our lives.

    Ah, I knew you were from the Comicboards. Are you/ Were you Spider-Monkey? Yes, that was a great story. I was a kid at the time and it inspired some of my own fanfic.

    I’m afraid to say as I was a really dumb 14 year old troll (not by malicious intent, but just through adolescent emotional immaturity). Anyway I was “Messenger” and was there from around 1998 to 2000. Then later on I posted under “JJJ’s Ulcer” on SuperheroHype in the late 00s, early 10s. My interest in Spidey has definitely waxed and waned over the years (more waned after BND). Once Ben fades into obscurity again, and assuming Kaine doesn’t make a comeback, I’ll probably fade for a while again.
