However, despite both being products of radioactivity,  Reilly was better protected that Parker thanks to his corporate-funded haz-mat Spider-Man suit, and Peter Parker just had the regular cloth.

Cover by ARTHUR ADAMS

Peter Parker may be out of commission, but luckily Ben Reilly is more than capable of taking his place. Equipped with gadgets and tech from the Beyond Corporation, Reilly has everything it takes to be the superior Spider-Man, but he'll finally meet his match in a devastating battle against one of the Spider-Man's most feared enemies—Doctor Octopus! It begins in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #85 by writer Cody Ziglar and artist Paco Medina. It's going to take everything for Ben Reilly—and the company that backs him—to stop Otto Octavius. But, in the Merry Marvel fashion (and as with all respectable Spider-Stories), even if Spider-Man wins, he is going to lose. And he is going to lose BIG.
