Uncle Ben and Aunt May were an elderly couple who lived in a house by the sea with their wheelchair bound 'niece', Linda Brown. Ben became worried when Linda became restless at night, fearing that she might try to 'sleepwalk' like her Aunt. Sure enough Linda, actually a mermaid, was eventually compelled to return to the ocean, her true home. It was strongly implied that Uncle Ben and Aunt May had known what she really was all along, though how she had come to live with them remains unclear.
- Uncle Ben, drawn by Steve Ditko, appeared in Strange Tales #97 several months before the near identical character of Ben Parker debuted in the first Spider-Man story in Amazing Fantasy #15. The histories of the two characters, both married to an "Aunt May" seem impossible to reconcile, however.
