History: (Spider-Man cartoon episode - "Spider Wars, Chapter II: Farewell Spider-Man") - When the Spider-Carnage of Earth-98311 transported to Earth-31198 and kidnapped that reality's Gwen Stacy in a second attempt to detonate a bomb that would destroy the Multiverse, Spider-Man of Earth-92131 was sent there to stop Spider-Carnage and deduced that rather than trying to defeat Spider-Carnage, he should try to understand him. Figuring that Spider-Carnage might merely be confused, Spider-Man-92131 monologued that there was only one person who could help Spider-Carnage remember right from wrong and he swung off to find Earth-31198's living Ben Parker, thinking that Earth-31198 might be the only place where Ben might still be found. A short time later, after recruiting Ben Parker to assist against Spider-Carnage, Spider-Man-92131 confronted Spider-Carnage, who threatened to drop Gwen from a rooftop as he opened a portal that threatened to suck in and destroy all of Earth-31198. Reaching out to Spider-Carnage's Peter Parker side, Spider-Man exclaimed that if he couldn't reach the Peter inside Spider-Carnage, he had brought along someone who could. Earth-31198's Ben Parker then walked out from the shadows, surprising the emotional Spider-Carnage, who had lost his reality's Uncle Ben much like the Peter Parkers of other realities. Explaining that Spider-Man-92131 had told him everything, Ben assured Spider-Carnage that while he knew Spider-Carnage had a really bad time, he was there for him in that reality and no matter what, he loved Peter. When Ben then asked if Spider-Carnage remembered what he had told him about great power, the crying Spider-Carnage recited Ben's quote of "with great power comes great responsibility" and Ben explained that Spider-Carnage had a great power and that it was his responsibility to the world to rid himself of the symbiote. Spider-Carnage then attempted to rid himself of the Carnage symbiote but it refused to leave Spider-Carnage's body, causing Spider-Carnage intense pain. Ben exclaimed for Spider-Carnage to fight the symbiote with all his heart and soul but the alien symbiote proved too strong for Spider-Carnage to expel. Begging forgiveness, Spider-Carnage dissipated the portal and instead used the portal device to create a smaller portal, which he then jumped into, vaporizing himself. A saddened Ben Parker then admitted that he thought Earth-98311's Peter Parker had done what he thought was best for himself and the entire world. He then hugged Spider-Man-92131, telling him that he had done well against Spider-Carnage and assuring Spider-Man-92131 that he was proud of him. Ben then admitted he would miss Earth-92131's Peter Parker and Spider-Man replied that he would also miss Ben, remarking with a few tears that Ben would always be in his heart.

Comments: Created by John Semper and Marvel Films Animation (see Appearances list for list of artists involved).

This reality's Ben Parker presumably had the same physical stats as his Earth-616 counterpart. May Parker was not shown on Earth-31198 so it was unrevealed if Ben was married to May on Earth-31198. It's same to assume that his nephew was still Peter, given that Ben recalled having told Peter "with great power comes great responsibility."
