FCBD 2021 Spider-Man/Venom # 1 reveals Ben Reilly’s Spider-Man identity is out in the public
The recently released FCBD 2021 Spider-Man/Venom issue reveals that Ben Reilly’s Spider-Man identity is out in the public already when he takes over the mantle in Amazing Spider-Man.
In this issue, the villain Bushmaster (with his hands that can morph into guns) take hostages but encounters Spider-Man with his new gear and new look. The villain then tries to shoot a hostage, but Spidey saves the hostage by put himself between the bullet and the intended victim.
Turns out the new costume is bulletproof thanks to a new polymer in his equally new costume…
Spidey and Bushmaster go toe-to-toe and Spidey blocks the barrel of the baddie’s gun and it ends up exploding, injuring the bad guy.
Later Spidey meets up with a street crew who helps him up with stuff.
To them and for the rest of the world, the real Spider-Man is Ben Reilly. Hooboy.
