Could be one of the Iron Spiders. Which I miss. Actually is there only one left?

Marvel's behind the times; it's been at DC for two years now.

Here's something I've always wondered: why do people scream and clamor for the return of Ben? I was reading comics, and working in my LCS, during the clone saga. EVERYONE wanted him to be gone. When he died, and the Saga ended, there was much rejoicing. And then, almost immediately, it went from that to, "Ben was a cool character, just not as the REAL Spidey", and eventually it was "WE WANT BEN! WE WANT BEN! WE WANT BEN!"


I swear to Kong, when he does come back, people are going to hate him. And call for his death. We really don't know what we want.

He wasn't the bad part of the Clone Saga. If anything, the exact moment people wanted him "dead" was when he took up being Spider-Man when readers found out Peter was the clone, and Ben the original.

I for one never hated Ben. The character was actually interesting and fascinating. Now the Jackal of that era. ..... Ugh. I still want death onto that character even though Dan Slott and Christopher Yost have done miracles in bringing the character back from that 90s extreme.

I never had a hate for Ben. I was okay with him being around as the back-up Spider-Man. :smt102

PAD introduced an "evil Uncle Ben" in FNSM.

Wikipedia wrote:Chameleon 2211

A version of Chameleon appeared in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. He has the powers of physically changing into any shape or form after accessing their DNA. This usually involves sampling their blood after killing the subject, although less lethal methods are possible; he was able to change into Sandman after an accidental ingestion of some of his sand.

Chameleon encounters an alternate Uncle Ben from another future who has been transferred into the 'main' timelined by Hobgoblin of 2211, attempting to influence Ben to kill Edwin Jarvis for his current involvement with this timeline's May Parker by arguing that, since the multiverse means every action possible is being committed, you might as well do what feels good. When Ben rejects the suggestion, Chameleon kills and replaces him. This fools Spider-Man 2211 whom he then kills when he arrives to try to return 'Ben' to his reality. After discovering the body, Sandman's father was framed for Ben's murder, and Sandman went to Spider-Man for help.

The two encountered Chameleon at Peter's high school (Chameleon had murdered the principal and was posing as him), where Chameleon reveals that he wasn't human at all but a giant monster. Chameleon was finally defeated, however, after Spider-Man (of Earth 616) used Spider-Man 2211's helmet to literally "administer poetic justice," causing a last-minute body switch between Chameleon and Sandman's father into an electric chair.

Ben can be some other Spider-guy. Kaine owns Scarlet Spider as his name now.
