AMAZING SPIDER-MAN To Feature Ben Reilly vs. Miles Morales And Revisit Aunt May's Romance With Doc Ock
This December's issues of Amazing Spider-Man are set to reveal more about Peter Parker's hospitalisation, a battle between Ben Reilly and Miles Morales, and Aunt May romancing her former fiancé, Doc Ock!
A new era of Amazing Spider-Man begins next month with the return of Ben Reilly. With Peter Parker hospitalized, his clone takes over as New York's new wall-crawler in a series that includes work from writers and artists like Patrick Gleason, Cody Ziglar, Zeb Wells, Kelly Thompson, and Saladin Ahmed.
It's now been revealed that, in December, this explosive saga will see exciting developments including an epic showdown between Miles Morales and Ben Reilly, a possible rekindled romance between Aunt May and Doc Ock, and more!
In Amazing Spider-Man #80.BEY, with her nephew at death’s door, May Parker is not just going to sit around accepting that Peter’s ailments aren’t solvable, and is going to seek unconventional means by way of her ex-fiancé: Doctor Octopus!
Amazing Spider-Man #81, meanwhile, reveals that the Beyond Corporation has paid a lot of money for the Spider-Man trademark and does not take kindly to an unlicensed Spider-Man running around Brooklyn. So it’s up to Ben Reilly to take Miles Morales down. Mary Jane Watson is trying to nurse the bedridden Peter to health in Amazing Spider-Man #82, but when Peter’s roommate disappears, MJ has to step up. Can MJ and a nonmobile Peter get to the bottom of this hospital mystery?
You can check out the covers for these issues and more below, and it's certainly an intriguing time in the life of Spider-Man. Nick Spencer is wrapping his Amazing Spider-Man run up next week and after retconning "Sins Past" in his latest issue, and there are a lot of unanswered questions left to answer before Peter is put to one side and Ben swings back into action.
