    Why do they keep killing Peter Parkers? *spoilers*

    when they did it on Earth-1610 (Ultimate universe), I was kind of pissed. I liked the ultimate continuity, and I like Peter Parker, so seeing them go drift apart made me sort of sad and angry. but it wasn't on the mainstream continuity, so I was sort of OK with it.

    but now they did it again, and on this time, it was on Earth-616, the Mainstream continuity. the original spider-man died. well, his body is alive, but now Doc Ock is the one inside it. and he claims he'll be a "superior spider-man". No, he won't. no spider-man can be better than the Amazing Spider-man.

    I'm gonna bet they'll start killing peter on all universes from now on. even on the movies. spider-man 2 will have Norman Osborn as spider-man. on spider-man 3 it'll be eddie brock's time. spider-man 4 will be all about JJ Jameson.

    RIP Peter Parker.

    not the way peter died. doc ock traded minds with him than killed his old, already dying body. that was dirty.

    EDIT: plus, peter has some minor regeneration powers.

    Why?

    To sell more comics. Every time a major character dies, there's a media blitz, and people say "They still sell comics?" and buy some. Then the boom tapers out until the next major character dies. We saw this back in the 1990's with Superman and Hal Jordan.

    I'm less upset that they're killing him and more that they undid the MJ/Parker marriage just to save the decrepit Aunt May. Of all the comics out there, Spiderman is by far one of the most repetitive, relying largely on the same cliches from when it started.

    To be honest marvel is starting to piss me off and then some.
    When they introduced the black Nick Fury to the Ultimate universe I was very cool with that but now they are going to replace him in the mainstream also and I am not cool with that. Don't get me wrong this is not a black versus white issue with me but simply the old "white" Nick is one of the few constant characters in Marvel.
    Then they killed of PP in the ultimate universe and again I was okay with that as it was not mainstream but now this shit happens in the mainstream universe there has to be a catch here somewhere because Peter Parker the one and only Spiderman is Marvels flagship character and has been for decades.
    If your a comic nutter like I am then you would know that over the years in various comics Peter Parker would be remembered as the greatest hero of them all, due to his constant hardship and his constant bravery and now this shit.
    After all these years I have seen Marvel and DC make some weird ass and stupid choices but this takes the cake.

    Okay rant over.

    Honestly, the only reason they make stupid choices is to move comics. There's only so many reasonable stories to tell with a specific group of characters, and some of these characters have been in pulp serials since the 60's (or the 30's-40's for the Golden Age heroes).

    Comic readers change on a generational basis, very few people comparatively buy and read comics for more than say 10 years or so. There's an impetus to "shake up" the storylines every few years to allow new readers into the series as well as allow the writers breathing space. Peter Parker should be in his 60's by now, and likely afflicted with enough emotional trauma for heavy doses of anti-depressants. Who wants to read that in a 'hero' comic?

    Welcome to the world of Marvel, son. Let me, one who has read Marvel for near three decades now, illuminate some things for you.

    I guess you're pretty new here. You haven't yet grasped how Marvel works. See, the thing is, they give the boot to the old writer (they always do), after which they have to get a temporary writer, or the new writer, end the "saga" the old writer started. Which completely and utterly destroys the whole plot. Then this new writer starts his own ambitious saga, and often it's a completely moronic idea, in an attempt to garner a higher audience.

    Then that writer gets sacked. That "dimension" gets destroyed. And it all starts anew.

    As far as Peter Parker goes, trust me buddy, the real Peter Parker will not die as long as Stan Lee is alive. They can make a million faux realities with wannabe writers with a million nobody-gives-a-shit Spider-Man clones, but the real Peter Parker is Stan Lee.

    Name a superhero who hasn't died at least twice.

    To be honest, for someone who doesn't follow the comics. No clue. The only spider-man I know and will ever know is Peter Parker.

    I havent read spiderman for quite some years, but do remember The Hand already tried reviving Doc. Oct. at the cost of Peter Parkers life, and the Vulture came pretty close too... But as always Peter will prevail somehow, Peter Parker actually died and came back to life after the Jackal tampered with his DNA to make him believe he was the clone as opposed to Ben Reilly.
