Ben Reilly Tested Against Morbius And Kraven In Amazing Spider-Man’s Beyond Era

by Brendan M. Allen

There’s a new Spider-Man in town. Starting in October, an all-star lineup of writers and artists will take Spidey beyond the limit. In an era without Peter Parker, his fan-favorite clone, Ben Reilly, takes over the mantle. Written by Kelly Thompson, with art by Sara Pichelli and Michael Dowling, these adventures of Spider-Man offer a fresh take on the Spider-Man mythos and an exciting development for Ben Reilly’s super hero legacy.

This November, fans will see Ben Reilly’s early outings as Spider-Man in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man #78-80. Now backed by the Beyond Corporation, Spider-Man is in for a slew of dangerous missions. After being brutally taken down by Morbius, Spider-Man will fall into a trap by one the deadliest foes in his legendary rogue gallery: Kraven the Hunter! The hunter is going to test his prey like never before and Spider-Man is sent into a hallucinatory spiral that will test his sanity and force him to do the impossible.

Also arriving in November will be Amazing Spider-Man #78.Bey, a pivotal issue written by Jed MacKay with art by Eleonora Carlini that will feature the Daughters of the Dragon as Spider-Man’s tough new trainers. But is even their skill level enough for the mission that the Beyond Corporation is about to send them on? This special installment of Amazing Spider-Man will debut a mysterious new villain: Obsidian Star.
