The Sensational Spider-Man (2nd Series)

    (Marvel, 1996-1998)
™ and ©1996 Marvel Characters, Inc.

When this title was launched in January, 1996, the Spider-Man section of the Marvel Universe was in the midst of a two-year-long “clone saga.” Ben Reilly, a clone of Peter Parker, was thought to be the original article. Partially as a result of this, he had assumed the role of Spider-Man while Parker attempted to devote his life to expectant wife Mary Jane. A year later, it was revealed that Reilly was a clone all along, and was eventually killed in Spider-Man #75. By issue #12 of this series, Parker was back in the role of Spider-Man, carrying on the best he could in his overly confusing life.
