Comic News - Spider-Man! Holy Crap!

Perhaps I'm a bit late in providing this news and if you're a true hardcore Spidey comic fan who hasn't heard the news yet, please do not read on!

For everyone else, read the full story as told in the New York Post

Spider-Man first burst into the scene way back in 1962 in Amazing Fantasy #15. Fans all over the world have seen him reincarnated in various forms over the past 40+ years - from comics, to a number of animated cartoons, to the live action movies.

Spider-Man 3 swings into theaters May 2007.

how are you

All the villians will now also easily track all his family and friends.
Stupid ass mothafucka.

It's pretty weird though, to hear a super hero revealing his identity.
I wonder what the real die-hard fans think about this.

@sedge: well, in House of M, Scarlet Witch had altered reality, so the answer to your question could be easily explained by pulling something similar to that.

@Demon:  I agree that eventually his identity has to go back to being secret. How the hell are they gonna get that to work?

Demon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/30/2006 14:35
yeppers, Civil War is pretty tight, but I bet something at the end of the story arc will make spiderman's identity secret again.

God.. this'll be a twist.. may not work well though... things may end up always being on a personal level now- since people know who he is.

Demon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/30/2006 13:57
@Tremulant - ya, he still wears a costume, but its his new one that IronMan build him, which is made of metal.  Why?  Idk, just because there's Spiderman, and then there's Peter Parker, he still wants to keep his identities seperate even though everyone knows now.

@ sedgemonkey - thats what makes you keep reading, lol

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/30/2006 13:54
So... does he still wear a mask/spandex costume? And if yes, why?

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 6/30/2006 13:34

How can Peter Parker possibly keep going on if guys like Doc Ock, Venom, etc know where he lives?

Its all part of the Civil War story arc, he reveals his identity and works for the government now, but now all his crazy enemies know his real identity.  So in the coming issues of Spider-man you'll basically be reading about Spider-man trying to fend off the likes of Vulture, Doc Ock, Venom, etc..   I have every issue of the 'Civil War' series so far. lol

Oh my Gawd. How will they continue? Surely they can't just forget who spiderman is now... :S

They reported this one even in finnish media.

Helsingin Sanomat is our main newspaper. What a crappy picture btw.
