Comics Major Ultimate Spider-Man spoiler alert

"Hey look there's some spoil-y stuff after this!" -McT



So... Today Marvel killed laid Peter Parker from their Ultimate line down for his final rest. He earned it. Now, the Ultimate Spider-Man comics is the only series from Marvel that I bothered keeping up with and it's because of the great quality it managed to maintain over the years.

Well, after 160 issues Bendis actually did it. Peter Parker died and I'm not too sure we'll see him coming back any time within this decade. It was a good ending for the character but I really am sad that it happened. For years I've been reading about this guy developing into the hero that we're used to seeing and right when he had it all together it came crashing down.

I really want to hate Bendis for this but he wrote it well and he wrote it the right way. I can't say that I'll stop reading when they relaunch the series with a new person as Spider-Man because I really want to see what happens to all the characters after this. This is one of those moments where a character death really might change things.

If any of you have been reading the series or ever looked into it, please discuss.

There is no spoiler warning when the people in charge let out a press release the day before saying that they are killing the character.

Oh look Bendis killed a character.

...With his mask off, good to see things haven't changed.

...Good thing Bendis didn't do anything that might actually meaningfully affect the character, like, say, letting him graduate high school.

Whoa. Peter Parker developed. He may have been a little slow but the series doesn't take up much more than maybe two years of time. And the Peter Parker from the start of the series is significantly different than the one at the end of it.

Then Peter Parker might stop being miserable, and we absolutely can't have that.
That's part of the reason Marvel Adventures Spider-Man has been my favorite ever since it started up. Peter gets knocked around a bit, he has things to worry about and stuff to deal with, but the universe just isn't quite as obviously trying to wreck his life at every turn, as it has been for some other incarnations.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old�s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

development doesn't count when they slap the reset button and we see the same development five or six times.

Now I haven't read this particular run, but past experience leads me to believe he did not develop in any way that we haven't seen before

He went from a nervous kid with a habit of blaming himself for everything to a competent crime fighter with the support of his city (he even won Jameson over to his side) and finally got managed to minimize his massive guilt complex. Haven't seen that in any recent Spider-Man books.
