(Yahoo)   Marvel announces the death of iconic superhero Spiderman. But of course it won't really count because it's in an offshoot series rather than the "main" book. Why yes this is a repeat of every damn comic series since about 1999   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 132

Wow. They make comic books out of movies now?
 
2011-06-21 02:05:34 PM
Well, not many comic book heroes are immortal. Given enough time they'll be mostly dead soon enough.
 
2011-06-21 02:06:12 PM
I heard he was killed by having Tobey Maguire walk down the street dancing.

shiat knows, if I was Spiderman I would have killed myself across every single known Marvel universe just from that scene alone.

Maybe it's cuz I came to the USA when I was 12 but I never got into comics (graphic novels). I've tried recently since I love anime but reading manga/graphic novels does nothing for me. I love to read and I can pretty much guess that the story line in the graphic novels are better than the cartoons or movies but I can't read more than a couple of pages. Maybe cuz I never got used to reading them as a kid.

Comic book deaths mean less than pro wrestling retirements.

I remember Jason Todd's death being a huge deal when I was a kid. When I read somewhere that they brought him back, I just laughed and was glad I don't read comics.

There was one Antman that really died. Scott Lang took over Antman after Pym gave it up. Lang's death, among other things, triggered the "Disassembled" event that took place back in 2000, IIRC.

Then Eric O'Grady took over as Antman and was hilarious.

They have an animated version of that storyline which is actually pretty good called Batman: Under the Red Hood. For the animated version, the streamlined everything considerably, and got rid of some of the stupider bits of the original storyline, like Superboy Prime punching the walls of reality until they broke. The only thing I really didn't work for me was John DiMaggio's take on the Joker. It's on Netflix Watch Instantly if you're curious.

I don't think it's a contradiction. They mean that the title will go on, maybe with someone else taking the mantle, or trying to.

I read a description, and while it does sound kinda cool, I still have to ask, why? You are undercutting the tension of anyone's death every time you do this kind of thing.

Also, I hated the Lazarus Pit. I thought it had no place in the more "realistic" Batman universe.

?
Peter Parker is going to die permanently.
Ultimate Spider-Man may not die.

Not seeing the contradiction. With his last dying energy Peter Parker obviously bites a small child that goes on to become the next Spider Man.

I don't read the Ultimate, but why hasn't all the easily killed heroes/villains been killed? All Frank Castle would have to do is just snipe them in the head. I can see where this would be difficult for some villains such as Sandman, etc. But normal villains, and even heroes, should be easy pickings.
 
2011-06-21 02:48:31 PM
If we are talking infinite alternate universes the possibilities are endless.

Spiderman in Carthage, or Persia, or the Ming Dynasty.

Superman at Thermopylae or saving the Library at Alexandria.

Batman living in Carlsbad Caverns and teaming up with Zorro.

Wonder Woman at Troy, or battling Ghengis Khan.

Chuck Norris battling Brainiac or the Silver Surfer.

Why? For the totally kick ass action sequences, the great plot, the cool villains, and because he's the Goddam Batman. And, it forces the Batman to answer this question: "Why is the Joker still alive?"

/Plus, it was good imho.

Why yes this is a repeat of every damn comic series since about 1999

DC was doing "imaginary" stories back in the '60s. Imagine what would happen Superman and Lois Lane married. Imagine Lex Luthor killing Superman.

Jason Todd's death was writtin in 1989. His resurrection story was published in 2010. There's a whole new generation of readers now, let it go grandpa.
