--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I am so sick of officious jerks like you, going all the way back to a certain newspaper editor. You think no one else's life matters except your own. That heroes don't matter... that children don't matter... helpless children... you think you get to decide who lives and dies. You think you can tell me what to do. Well, you're wrong. You are so freaking wrong! I tell you what to do. An I am telling you that you're going to leave Cassandra Mercury alone. And if you don't... then this, right here... will seem... like... the good old days. Quote2.png
--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Are you kidding me?! Vegas is being attacked by an evil hotel?! Quote2.png
--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)
Quote1.png So... yeah... everyone's evil. Except... none of them triggered my spider-sense until they actually attacked. It's usually simple for me to tell who the bad guys are. They wear costumes. They shout my name and talk about how they're going to destroy me. Easy peasy. But now the demons just look like ordinary people. Well, for Vegas, anyway. I've been fighting the bad guys for years. How can I not be able to tell who they are by now? Quote2.png
--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I made a deal with the Devil... to save Abigail's life and to save my soul. I must've been crazy. What good would a purified soul do me if I'm then damned when I die? Quote2.png
--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I need your help. Mysterio's daughter is in town. Quote2.png
--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)
Quote1.png My name is Ben. I'm the one who wrote you about the child, Abigail. Quote2.png
--Benjamin Reilly (Earth-616)

Spider-Man
Look, Ben... you keep saying that they're our memories--that we can share them--and maybe we can--but we can't share this life. This isn't my life, and it's not mine to keep--I'm not the real Peter Parker--and I'm not the real Spider-Man! It's your right--and it's the way it should be.
Conversation Tail.png
Ben Reilly (Earth-616) from Web of Spider-Man Vol 1 118 0001.jpg
Scarlet Spider
My right? I don't know, Pete, you've been Spider-Man longer than I have. You've built a life here. You're more Peter Parker than I am. This is your life--you earned it! Mine is out there somewhere--and I have to go and find it. You keep this--it looks better on you anyway! You're better at it! I guess what I'm saying when it comes down to it... I make a pretty good Ben-- and you make a pretty good Peter... and I wouldn't have it any other way! This fight proved it! We didn't beat D'Spayre because we're the same guy--we beat him because we're different! Take, care, Mon Frere! And take care of you lovely wife and baby, too! You deserve them, Peter, and they're very, very lucky to have you!
