"Batman's" Gotham Was... Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
I don’t think there was anything WRONG with Ben Reilly.
He was a decent character, he was just unfortunately the sign of a bad era in Spider-Man comics.
Still, I don’t see what would have been the harm to just have someone definitively prove Ben is the clone, and then let Ben walk off into the sunset, to show up every once in awhile, and maybe die at some OTHER point in time.
