Marvel Teases 'The Death of Spider-Man'????

I just saw this up on CBR? Anyone care to speculate? There were heavy rumors prior to San Diego Comic Con that Peter would be removed as Spider-Man (these rumors were tied in with the Brand New Day concluding news) but nothing came of them. Interesting and obviously controversial.

Re: Marvel Teases 'The Death of Spider-Man'????

Oh my god!!!! They're going to kill Spider-Man?!!?! But he's their most popular character!!! He has a movie coming out, and a cartoon, and toys, and video games...

...

Unless... the death isn't real? They're just faking his death as a marketing ploy?

Would they do such a thing?

The funny thing is that they've chosen not to comment on the cover. I should have titled the thread Preview Magazine teases The Death of Spider-Man.

I am a sucker, though. I actually thought Steve Rogers was gonna stay dead when Cap-Bucky turned out to be so popular. I thought Conner Kent would stay dead too because of the legal hassles.

Knew Batman was coming back though

Nobody is ever really season comics, we all know this. It's dumb to kill Spiderman, they will regret it.

Re: Marvel Teases 'The Death of Spider-Man'????

Of course Bruce was coming back, he was never dead in the first place. Obviously they're not going to physically kill Spider-Man but it is meant to be an attention grabbing teaser. I remember a few years ago when they released the cover to what eventually turned out to be Kaare Andrews excellent "Spider-Man: Reign" people thought it was regular continuity!!

I hate when publishers pull this sort of predictable stunt. The Death of Superman, Knightfall, the Death of Bruce Wayne, the Death of Captain America ... yawn!

Kidding, surely.

Peter Parker will be back. He's more a concept thasn a character.

If Jean Grey taught us anything, it is that comic book deaths are forever.
