Following the BND event in Spiderman, it could be said that a lot of loose ends from Straczynski's run haven't been adressed. The only glimpse so far of the Spyder/hunter conflict in recent times has been Joe Kelly's 'Grim Hunt'. Its a good storyline, but it doesn't adress a number of factors. For example, It would have been better to see more of ezekiel and see writers deal with Ben Reilly's position in the mystic spyder society. I understand that Ben's been dead for years, but no writer has bothered to explain why Ezekiel and spiderman were targeted in recent years. Why wasn't Reilly targeted by Morlun, Shathra etc? Was it tied to status as an unnatural, science born spider? If so, why has Kaine (also a clone) been chosen to arise as the new Tarantula?
