I suffered through the first Clone Story where we were told that Peter Parker was a clone and Ben Reilly was the 'real' Spider-Man all the time or since the Jackal battled Spidey. People hated it so much that everything was eventually returned back to normal. The Jackal was always a dangerous enemy because he could clone himself and other dead people to fight or mess with Peter's brain. The whole Clone Saga was a giant clusterfuck that never really lived up to it's potential because they lost control of the narrative. To bring it back again was a ballsy choice but I am going to read it anyways. I like the look of this new powerful Jackal and his master plan can ONY end with the return of UNCLE BEN - yes, the ONLY character that can NEVER come back because his death is the core of what makes Spider-Man the hero he is. With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility and all that. However it is the freshest thing they can do with a character who has been in print for over 50 years.
