History: (Secret Wars Too#1/5 (fb) - BTS) - Domain #615, also known as Uncle Ben-a-Verse, was a domain on the Battleworld, a planet created by God Emperor Doom (Victor von Doom of Earth-616) from the remains of various alternate Earths destroyed in the incursions. It was ruled by a Baron appointed by Doom himself, who also had memories of all its inhabitants altered so that only their lives on the Battleworld could be remembered.
(Secret Wars Too#1/5 - BTS) - Domain #615 was the location of the Ultimate Wi-Fier, a device which granted its wielder absolute control over the Internet. When the Watcher (from an unspecified domain) hacked the food blog of Galactus, the ruler of Hell's Kitchen's Kitchen domain (reality-76173) teleported his herald Jessica Jones and his I.T. guy Spider-Man (Peter Parker) into Domain #615 so that they could find the Ultimate Wi-Fier and use it to break Watcher's control over his blog.
(Secret Wars Too#1/5) - Upon materializing in Domain #615, Spider-Man went to look around and discovered that the domain was the Uncle Ben-a-Verse and that all of its inhabitants, including the women and the children, had the face of his late Uncle Ben and communicated only with the word "Malkovich." This realization caused Peter to have a panic attack and he started crying. Meanwhile, Jessica Jones had successfully located the Ultimate Wi-Fier but before she and Peter could retrieve it they were attacked by the A-Ben-Gers (Uncle Ben counterparts of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Wolverine and Hawkeye). Despite Spider-Man's inner conflict over hurting Uncle Bens, the two of them fought off the attackers and left Domain #615 with the Ultimate Wi-Fier in their possession.
Comments: Created by Rob Guillory.
Uncle Bens of this domain only communicate by repeating the word "Malkovich." This is of course a reference to the film "Being John Malkovich," which deals with body possession, possibly implying that the current state of the domain is not natural.
For simplicity's sake we've ASSumed
that the A-Ben-Gers all share their 616 counterparts' codenames. Of
course, that might not be the case. Perhaps they are all "Ben-themed"
like their team name is, and we're meeting Iron Ben, Cap-Ben America
(or Captain Ben-merica), Thorben (or
Benthor - hey, it's hard to work Ben into a name as short as Thor!), Ben Widow, Wolver-Ben and Ben-eye. It's also feasible that
it wasn't Wolverine with the A-Ben-Gers, but D-Man - he is an Avenger
too after all, has a costume that looks very similar, and D-Man
actually features in the story prior to this one wearing that very
outfit. In which case we're seeing Demolition-Ben (Ben-olition-Man)? -
--Personally, for the Wolverine counterpart, I like the possible codename of Ben-verine (sounding like actor/singer Ben Vereen) for hilarity's sake.. --Proto-Man
