Quote1 He overcame the paralysis when neither of us could... Because of his optimism. There might be things he can do just because he doesn't see losing as a possibility. Quote2

Unlike Earth-616's Ben Reilly, this clone of Spider-Man didn't die at the hands of the Green Goblin, and kept being Spider-Man as Peter Parker started losing his powers and moved to Oregon with Mary Jane Watson.[1]

Benjamin Reilly (Earth-94) from Amazing Spider-Man Vol 3 9 001

He was recruited into an army of Spider-Men from across the Multiverse to fight against the Inheritors when he had already been targeted by one of them, Verna. Spider-Man was fighting alternate versions of the Vulture sent by Verna to hunt him down when Old Man Spider and Spider-Ham arrived to Earth-94 to help him. During the fight, they were paralyzed by poisoned knives one of the Vultures threw at them. Ben Reilly managed to break free due to having fought a similar type of control, when he was bonded with the Carnage Symbiote. He webbed one of the Vultures, causing him to throw acid at one of his partners. The distraction was long enough for Old Man Spider and Spider-Ham to break free and web them up.

They left them to be dealt with by Verna, and escaped to Earth-13, the refuge for Spider-Men.[2]

Peter Parker (Ben Reilly) (Earth-94) 008

The ultimate sacrifice

Ben later helped rescue Kaine from Earth-616.[3] Ben, along with Kaine and Black Widow, later traveled to another universe, from where the cloned bodies that granted the Inheritors immortality came from.[4] After facing Jennix of the Inheritors, Ben set out to destroy the device which received the signal that carried the Inheritors to their new bodies. Unable to deactivate it manually, and with Jennix on his tail, Ben was forced to use ammunition to explode the device, sacrificing himself.[5]
