Devil's Reign: Spider-Man #1

It seems Ben Reilly's role in Marvel's Devil's Reign is to get beat up, captured, and rescued. Then repeat. After being freed by his friends, Spidey-Clone is captured again by the Thunderbolts making use of S.H.I.E.L.D. tech. Getting out of his latest jam, Reilly makes it back to Beyond to do a minimal amount of healing before being sent back into danger.

Devil's Reign: Spider-Man #1 is your typical tie-in issue. While not bad, if you choose to skip the issue there's nothing here of major interest and  you also won't miss anything in terms of the larger Devil's Reign story. The other half of the comment focuses on the Rose, and the character's obsession with proving himself by capturing Spider-Man for his father. Unfortunately, while his minions are able to momentarily get the upper-hand, things don't turn out so well in the end. It seems if you want a job done right...
