    As much as I sympathize with your position, Ben Reilly disintigrated into dust. I honestly cannot fathom them bringing him back. A 'follow-up' to the clone saga doesn't necessarily mean Ben's coming back to life; it could mean Kaine comes back (which would make a lot more sense since, you know, he didn't turn into a pile of dust). It could deal with what really happened to Baby May. Hell, Judas Traveller could come back. 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.


They can take the very easy way out by saying he never died in the first place. The first way to go about this is to say that Osborn replaced Ben with a clone of a clone right after the Amazing Spider-Man issue where he got zapped by Osborn and the Ben in PP 75 was a clone of Ben (a 2nd generation clone which is why it disintigrated). The 'real' Ben was held captive somewhere but alive.

The second is the clue about the Mephisto deal changing one other key thing about Peter Parker's life other than what we already know (the marriage). Most people think it means the pregnancy (which could have changed the way the Clone Saga played out) or the entire Clone Saga itself.

That's just off the top of my head. It's comics. There are any number of ways a character can come back to life.
