After his genetic template, Peter Parker, was captured while protecting a now AWOL Mayhem. He joined the Spider-Men, using the Spider-Man identity until Peter's return and taking April under his wing, adopting her as his niece.
As a result of his multiple deaths and resurrections, Ben's mind created an alter ego akin to that of his creator. Using the original Jackal's cloning technology, he almost destroyed the world.
