Depends. He's certainly the antagonist - but not sure he's done a great deal of direct villainy.

Not in Clone Conspiracy but he was definitely a villain in Spider-Island.

Yeah but I don't think that was him :P

I love this article on why the Inhumans suck

Not buying (or pirating :P) these comics atm, but will watch IvX with interest/expecting a huge car crash

Dan Slott claimed in an interview that Reilly was the Jackal in Spider-Island.


Back around to another question from Marvel.com: If Ben Reilly is the Jackal, where’s Miles Warren? “We’ve seen like 20 Miles Warrens,” Slott said. “All of his lackeys are Miles Warren. Right now, we’ve had the Jackal, and it’s been this way since Spider-Island,’ whenever we see him, he’s been waited on hand and foot by Miles Warren clones — and now we know that was Ben Reilly! What is going on!”

They should have just strawberry floated the X-Men off into their own separate continuity after Secret Wars. Bored of them now and it would hopefully stop the whiny banana split fans moaning about how poorly they are being treated and how Marvel are favouring the Inhumans when theres about 7 or 8 new X-Books coming out :lol:

The relaunch next year sounds absolute shite too. One of the main books again being all about the young time-displaced X-Men that no one cares about, and the other being a more traditional X-Men one but with Kitty Pryde being the leader when strawberry floating Storm is on the team(?). It was funny reading an interview with one of the writers going on about the usual prejudice and racism the teams face when both books are incredibly white with Storm being the only non-white character between the two main books.

That Weapon X book from Greg Pak that's basically just X-Force sounds interesting but Greg Land is on art and I immediately lost interest.


:lol: Hickman :wub:

Anyone found a reasonable place to get hold of the Marvel Masterworks series at a reasonable price? I'd like to grab a few of them, but by God are they dear.

Looks like they've kept Ben mostly good - I'll be glad to see him back in the MU if that's the case.

Edit: costume looks like Spidercide, if anyone remembers him.

IvX #2 (Spoiler jokey summary image)

It's quite amusing across the web that most (not all) reaction seems to be laughing at the Inhumans getting what they deserve - but the underlying impression is that Marvel is trying to paint them as the underdogs/victims/ones to root for.

Has any recent Marvel event ever managed to paint the designated good/bad guys the way they want?

Civil War 2 finale sounded like an absolute cracker.

I see Bendis is writing the new Defenders comic that of course has the same line up as the TV show :sniper: At least he knows those characters and has written them all before.

Guys have I been missing a trick by not checking comic prices through Kindle? They seem to be the same as the Comixology version, even letting you download them through the Comixology app but there are some serious price differences.

Age of Ultron Complete Event
€27 on Comixology
€7.90 on Kindle

Superior Spider-Man Vol 1
€7.99 on Comixology
€2.03 on Kindle

Pre-order War of Kings Aftermath omnibus back in November when it was £67. My order was dispatched a couple of days ago and I've just got an email saying I've been refunded.

They claim it was damaged during transit. Hmm. Coincidentally it's nearly doubled in price on Amazon since I bought it.

I like how they learned nothing from designated heroes/villians in AvsX (this even ends with 2 people flying up while others look on...with onlookers saying "beautiful" this time...)....

Except to try and justify the face-turn "villian" at the end they nonsensically make her randomly a mas murderer :fp:
