Whew. Given how permanent all the other "major story" deaths at Marvel have been, I was really worried ...

At this point, isn't Uncle Ben the only person in that universe who stayed dead?

Well Gwen Stacy is also still dead at least in the regular Marvel universe.

Sadly some of the fans don't get that for some reason hence why we get Spider-Man selling his marriage to Satan.

I think Marvel would want a Peter Parker book on the market when the second Andrew Garfield film reaches theaters. If so, that would suggest 18 months for the storyline to play out.

Stepping back from that, Marvel needs to have SpiderOck fight all the major players in Spidey's rogues gallery to show how different and superior SpiderOck is. (DC did that with both Jean-Paul Valley and Dick Grayson; during their tenures as Batman, they battled all the major villains.) Plus, Otto fighting Green Goblin would be entirely different than Peter fighting Green Goblin; the animosities are similar, but for different reasons.

There's interesting ground to cover, that's for sure. But I don't see it as a permanent change to the character because it's not something you can easily explain.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

I don't understand how anyone could think this is permanent. This is just another story that's going to play out. One story in the character's fifty year history. It may go on for a while, but Peter Parker will be back as Spider-Man soon enough. This is an absolute certainty.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

Yeah like Johnny Storm's "death". That lasted like a month.

If Bruce Wayne can die and come back then Peter Parker can come back

I'm thinking "Superior Spider-man" will be a battle between Ock and Peter over who can be the best. Somehow Peter will survive.

Maybe the golden octobot holds peter consciousness

No that lasted a year.

I think it's more likely Peter's is still there in his brain and that it's just being repressed by Otto.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

^ Pretty much got it. Otto blocked Peter's hack of the octobot...but Peter might have been able to use it to transfer his conscience into Otto's brain. There is a panel in Avenging where Otto reacts to a mugging despite himself, and dismisses his reaction as nothing but instinct. The word instinct is in bold.

Peter is not dead, Bruce Wayne didn't die either, he was sent through time, and nor did Johnny (he was merely trapped in the Negative Zone and thought dead by Ben).

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

Edit: Somewhat beaten to the punch by Admiral_Young.

Peter's memories are in his body, but #700 explicitly showed that the golden Octobot was unable to physically connect with the body in order to transfer Peter's full imprint back in. Due to Spider-Ock's neck armor, the bot was only able to "wirelessly upload" Peter's memories.

That bot should still be out there, but now with no one's consciousness driving it since Peter-in-Ock is dead.

Except for out of habit - the interesting question for me has to be - why? The last time a comicbook seems to get a raise in sales because of a film is when the Burton Batman was out - beyond that. At best, a movie seems to slow decline.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

^Spider-Man fans. I bought it, and don't regret doing so, but then I liked it *shrugs* and have been a Slott fan since he's been on the book.

Kaine won't be a factor in this IMO. He has a story of his own going on right now. Although it will be interesting to see if they have Superior encounter Scarlet Spider at some point since Kaine was responsible for killing Otto the first time I believe Or at least snapped his neck, I don't know if that was retconned though when they brought Otto back.

I believe Peter will return well before "Amazing Spider-Man 2" comes out.

Some people budget for comics, and other people don't have to budget.

That second lot.

I hate them.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

So the people who actually liked the story and bought the book are suckers? I guess I'm a sucker then and glad to be one

Normally I wouldn't have bought such an expensive book, but I'd been looking forward and planning to buy Amazing #700 for quite some time anyway. So yeah I budgeted it for it and like I said above, don't regret it at all. I'll most likely be getting the Dying Wish hardcover when it comes out in the spring time too.
