https://ift.tt/3pP9m3J

Ben Reilly has become Spider-Man again with the backing of the Beyond Corporation, who wishes for the hero to be the only web slinger in New York City.

The Amazing Spider-Man #81 promises a confrontation between Ben and fellow Spider-Man Miles Morales. Ben has been filling in the absence of Peter Parker following the beginning of ASM’s “Beyond” arc, which placed Peter into a coma after a team-up between the two. Ben was already sent to have a talk with Peter beforehand, but Beyond wants a similar issue brought up and addressed with Miles: trademark infringement.

Ben Reilly is a clone of Peter Parker created by the villain Miles Warren aka Jackal during the “Clone Saga” of Spider-Man’s history. In Oct. 2021’s The Amazing Spider-Man #75, he appeared to Peter as the new Spider-Man in Manhattan, before a shared meal involved Ben telling Peter that he legally cannot be Spider-Man anymore. But who is responsible for the Spider-Man trademark issue? None other than Doctor Octopus!

Well, not exactly. The issue explained that Octavius filed a trademark for the name and likeness of Spider-Man while his mind inhabited Peter’s body during the events of The Superior Spider-Man. Beyond purchased this trademark, now putting their own Spider-Man, Ben, into the field to represent the company and be the sole webbed hero in its name. After already delivering one notice to Miles in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #32, the company now plans to put a stop to the Brooklyn resident’s super heroics with Ben’s assistance.

A preview for the upcoming ASM issue teases the inevitable confrontation between the two. Beyond tells Ben that there is a 79-percent chance of running into Miles on his next outing, and that if that happens, he will be “contractually obligated to enforce Beyond’s trademark.” The company has even prepared alternate names for Miles to take, such as Striker and Stinger (which are in line with Miles’ ability to create electrical “venom blasts”). The preview and solicitation for the upcoming issue can be found below.
