    As much as I sympathize with your position, Ben Reilly disintigrated into dust. I honestly cannot fathom them bringing him back. (SNIP) I too would love to see Ben back (and maybe even in his own title, set, like you said, in some other city) but I think it's far too much to hope for beyond some sort of flashback story, like the recent Spidey/X-Men mini.

I honestly don't see the point of bringing Ben back, especially since what he was supposed to bring to the table is now covered by Peter himself, but it would be easy enough to bring him back in the wake of OMD:

Since Pete and MJ weren't married, they took additional precautions and she never got pregnant. So they didn't leave New York for Portland, Peter never temporarily lost his powers, etc., which could have lead to a chain of events where Ben never died. He just decided that New York didn't need two Spider people so he decided to go back on the open road. And, for some upcoming story, he decides to come back.
