The ‘Beyond’ era has featured the return of Peter Parker’s clone who took over the Spider-Man role after Peter was incapacitated.

Amazing Spider-Man #93 (opens in new tab) is a double-sized issue and as you can see by the unlettered preview pages Peter and Ben aren’t seeing eye-to-eye these days, almost certainly because Ben fell under the control of the mysterious Beyond Corporation.

But while it’s undoubtedly the end of this Ben Reilly era as Marvel gets ready to celebrate Peter’s 60th anniversary this year, it is Marvel after all, so according to the publisher, the end of Ben’s time as Spidey, “may be the beginning of something else…”

Amazing Spider-Man #93 features a cover by Arthur Adams and a variant cover by Gleason. Check out the preview pages and Adams cover in our gallery below followed by more details about March’s ‘Beyond’ era titles.

Original story

The current ‘Spider-Man Beyond’ era of Amazing Spider-Man and its related titles will come to an end in March, with Marvel showing off advance solicitations for all the publisher’s Spidey-related releases for the first month of spring that set the stage for the story’s end.

The final month of ‘Spider-Man Beyond’ kicks off with March 2’s Amazing Spider-Man #91 from writer Kelly Thompson (of the so-called ‘Beyond Board’ writers’ room of Amazing Spider-Man) and artist Sara Pichelli, which picks up where February’s Miles Morales: Spider-Man #35 left off, with Miles having been thrown into the Multiverse thanks to the Assessor and his Space Stone powered minion Quantum.

It’s unclear how, but the Assessor seems to have some connection to the Beyond Corporation judging by the events of Amazing Spider-Man #81, and the solicitation text for the aforementioned Miles Morales #35, which mentions the Beyond Corporation as “Miles’ only hope.”

March 9’s Amazing Spider-Man #92, also from Thompson and Pichelli, then follows up on recent events surrounding Dr. Curt Connors, the Lizard, and his connection to the current tribulations Ben Reilly has been facing as Spider-Man.

March 16’s Amazing Spider-Man #92.BEY then takes a slight detour from the main ‘Spider-Man Beyond’ saga for a one-and-done story from writers Saladin Ahmed, Zeb Wells, and Cody Ziglar which, according to Marvel Comics, will be “an essential chapter for Monica Rambeau,” who has appeared in recent issues of Amazing Spider-Man secretly working against the Beyond Corporation, who Monica has a history with thanks to the series Nextwave: Agents of HATE.

After that, March 23’s Amazing Spider-Man #93 will serve as the finale of the ‘Spider-Man Beyond’ arc, with Marvel promising an “unforgettable showdown” between Peter Parker and Ben Reilly, stating “you may surprise yourself with who you’re rooting for.”

And finally, March’s Spider-Man stories conclude with Miles Morales: Spider-Man #36 on March 30, which follows Miles and his companion/clone shift after they’re thrown into the Multiverse by the Assessor. Judging by the cover of the issue, Miles may be headed home to the Ultimate Universe for a visit, as well as the Marvel Zombies Universe, Spider-Gwen’s home reality of Earth-65, and more.

Here’s a gallery of all the covers for March’s Spider-Man releases:
