Scarlet Spider (Marvel)(01 - Ben Reilly)
Real Name: Ben Reilly
Search for 'Scarlet Spider (Marvel)(01 - Ben Reilly)' on Amazon

Powers:
Ben shared Peter Parker's spider-powers, including superhuman strength, speed, agility, and the ability to cling to surfaces. Ben's spider-sense was the same as Peter's, except that it could not be overridden by Venom.

Bio:
Ben Reilly is the clone of Peter Parker. Ben at one time took on the mantle of Spider-man, then later Scarlet Spider, when it was thought he was the real Peter Parker.

Ben Reilly was the first successful clone of Spider-Man created by the Jackal. The Jackal, in his deranged grief over Gwen Stacy's death, pitted Ben against the real Spider-Man in Shea Stadium, putting both in identical costumes and allowing both to believe they were the true Peter Parker. After a heated fight, the two Spider-Men teamed up to try to save a clone of Gwen from the Jackal. In doing so, Ben seemingly died. Spider-Man dropped Ben's body into a smokestack, unable to think of any other way to deal with a dead body identical to Peter Parker.

However, the clone was not dead and literally rose from the ashes. Believing he was the real deal, he went home only to find Peter already there. The world as he understood it fell apart, and he left New York. In time, he adopted the name of Ben Reilly, a combination of Uncle Ben's name and Aunt May's maiden name.

Short time member of the New Warriors [issues 59, 62-67].

Notes:
Reilly chose his name as a dual homage to Ben Parker and May Reilly (Peter's uncle Ben and aunt May, for those not in the know).
