There's a new wall-crawler in town! Meet Ben Reilly, the Scarlet Spider, who recently learned he's not a clone of Peter Parker after all - he's the original! And when Pete decides to hang up his web-shooters, Ben retakes the job...as Spider-Man! There's no shortage of foes to fight - including the new Doctor Octopus, Venom, Mysterio, Tombstone, Sandman, Kaine, Carnage and more! But while Ben wears the revamped red-and-blues as Spidey, what does that ol' Parker luck have in store for Peter and the pregnant Mary Jane?
