    With the state Spider-Man is in right now this can't be any worse. Plus if this brings Ben Reilly back, fuck yeah,sign me up.

    They need something to get back old readers, look at their plans X-men forever,Spier-man clone saga, they are trying to recapture many of the readers they lost.

    Unlike X-Men Forever, I can actually see the point in this.

    There will probably be some reality bending shinanigens to reverse OMD at some point, which is as good an excuse as any to go back and reset the Clone Saga disaster to whatever was originally intended before the editorial idiocy of 90s Marvel got in the way.

    Plus the Clone Saga is a major event thats never been reprinted and this is probably a better option then trying to publish a set of $30 TPBs full of material that people hate. Folks that want the original horror can still get the floppies for next to nothing or wait a few years for the essentials to reach that stuff.

    It's just a retelling of the Clone Saga, the way it was supposed to be, before it got all fucked up. If it's actually good, maybe they'll retcon it in place of the crappy version.

    Marvel needs to stop retconning old stories and just write good new ones. That are fun and not depressing.

    Heck yeah, if Ben Reilly is back, I'm so there. I hope he does show up in his Sensational Spiderman costume at some point, though I can also settle with the original hoodie design as well.

    And I predict Spider Striker to be elated with joy when he reads this.:)

    Bring It! I loved the Scarlet Spider. I'd really like to see a clear and crisp portrayal of how the Clone Saga was suppose to have panned out. To this day I'm still not sure who the hell Ben Reilly actual was. I thought I knew up until he found that damned skeleton in the smokestack. After that point, it was all shrugs and shennanigins, and clones on top of clones.

    Maybe this'll help boot Spider-Man back to a decent storyline. One More Day and Brand New Day just...dear Gods, there are no words to describe the horror. As a happily married fan of Spidey for nearly fifteen years, I can't express my outrage at Marvel and Joe Quesada for that storyline. I stopped reading just about everything Marvel at that point.

    Here's hoping they can fix it someday. Maybe then I'll come back to the fold...

    I think I'll be picking this up as well. Can anyone give me the skinny on the X-Men Forever book? I saw it with all of the old designs for the mutants on the cover and almost picked it up, but I figured it would just be a flashback book or something. Am I wrong?

    If it's the Claremont one, basically Marvel gave him carte blanche to finish a story he didn't finish writing way back when. Since Claremont is still relevant and stuff.

    The only good thing to come out of the clone saga was Ben Riley as Scarlet Spider. Beyond that the whole thing was a huge train wreck that really needs to stay dead.

    He was involved in the original story, so it makes sense that he's here.

    And I'll take him any day over Jeph fucking Loeb.

    Please don't stretch the screen so far. :) 

    I reaaaaaaaaaaaally hope this brings back the Spidey-marriage somehow.
