History: Ben was born to Annabelle Adams and Kaine Parker, the original clone of Peter Parker. Kaine was blessed when he learned that his son was born without the cellular degeneration he was originally cursed with, and that he was instead born with a genius intellect. From the minute he could read and write, Ben displayed an intelligence not unlike that of his uncle Peter's, and was soon on his way to becoming one of the world's smartest minds.
When he turned 13, while most teenagers began experiencing puberty, his spider powers began to awaken, and he was instructed in their workings by his father and uncle. However, despite having easily adapted to his powers, his parents strictly forbade him from crime fighting, saying that it was too dangerous. But that didn't keep him down, and he would sneak out at night and combat the criminals of Houston, leading to many a groundings. One day, his father was badly outmatched against a new Vulture, and Ben quickly donned one of his father's Spare masks and a Scarlet Spider Hoodie he got from Hot topic, similar to that of his namesake Ben Reilly. He quickly used his Spider Powers and technological know how to defeat the Vulture, and despite being mad as hell, Kaine was proud if his son, and Peter soon set Ben up with his old nano-tech costume which Ben reprogrammed with a new color scheme and all sorts of technology, including a bunch of old Spider Bots.
The criminals of Houston soon began to fear the Cyber Spider, and before long Ben was on the Young Avengers with his cousin May, known as Spider-Girl, and their close friend Harry Thompson, the son of Agent Venom and Betty Brant known as 'Poison', along with Francis 'Bullseye' Barton (son of Hawkeye and Spider-Woman), Danielle 'Power Girl' Cage (daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones), James 'Bucky' Rodgers (son of Captain America and Sharon Carter-Rodgers), Steve 'Camouflage' Barnes (son of Winter Soldier and Black Widow), Jimmy 'Wild Child' Howlett( son of Wolverine), and Torunn (daughter of Thor and Sif), fighting threats such as Baron Zemo, the Grey Goblin, the Red Skull, and the DOA.
On Ben's 17th birthday, he awoke to see Kaine's worse fear had come true: his cells began to rapidly degenerate, and his mind went with it. Things didn't let up for Ben, when Ana Kravinoff, daughter of Kraven the Hunter, badly injured the Young Avengers, save for the three spider powered teens, and initiated what she called 'the Final Hunt', putting Venom, Spider-Man, Scarlet Spider, Spider-Girl, Poison, and Cyber Spider through a gauntlet of trials. With his physical and mental health rapidly deteriorating, Ben was nearly overwhelmed by Ana's illusions, but nevertheless, sacrificed himself to save his family from Ana, jumping in front of her spear to save his aunt Mary Jane. Dying in his mother's arms, his sacrifice spurred the Spiders to defeat Ana, and he was buried with the words 'Ben Reilly Parker. Son and friend. His sacrifice saved us all' on his headstone.
2 months later, Kaine received a call that someone had dug up his sons grave, and the Spiders began systematically destroying the criminals underground of America, hoping to find who disturbed their fallen family member's rest. Their journey eventually found them at the doorstep of Miles Warren, who had survived all these years by constantly creating clones of himself. They were dismayed to learn that he was the one who dug up Ben's grave, and Warren ordered a creature called 'Spidercide 3.0' to attack the spiders. Kaine attacked the creature with a relentless flurry of blows, but stopped when he noticed a small scar on the creature's right shoulder, which Ben had gotten from a bully at school years earlier, and realized Warren had turned his son into a monster, and his hesitation allowed his transformed son to nearly kill him, holding the killing blow for unknown reasons. Warren ordered Ben to kill Kaine and Peter, and as he raised his claws for the killing blow, Kaine said 'remember who you are.' Spidercide began experiencing a flow of memories, of both his early life and superhero life. His personality restored, the Spidercide creature exploded into webbing, and in the epicenter sat Ben, clad in his Cyber Spider and slightly taller. He mentally closed the doors using a new found ability to communicate with technology, and defeated Warren using Stingers similar to the ones his father possessed.
His return was gladly welcomed all around, and when asked about how he came back, said 'I was in a dark place, and there was this…voice talking to me. It said my job was not yet over.' This, along with opinions from Franklin Richards, the current head of the Future Foundation, and Doctor Strange, implies that there is more to Ben's resurrection than Warren's attempts to play God. Only time will tell, and at the moment Ben appears to be free of Cellular Degeneration, but has been heard saying 'prey' at random times.
