Controversial "Amazing Spider-Man" Comic Book Hits Stores Today, Fans are Angry

Controversial "Amazing Spider-Man" Comic Book Hits Stores Today, Fans are AngrySubmit Comment
Issue 700 of "The Amazing Spider-Man" hit stores today and contains a story that fans are having trouble accepting. In fact, the feedback has been so negative, that the writer of the comic book, Dan Slott, has been getting death threats on his Twitter account.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

In the new issue, Peter Parker loses a major battle against Doctor Octopus, who has spent the past year fighting to destroy the world as his body slowly died. He then switches minds with Peter, taking on the body of Spider-Man. Peter ends up in Doctor Octopus' body, which succumbing to illness, killing Peter in the process.

"This is Moriarty in the head of Sherlock. This is Prince John inside of Robin Hood. This is the greatest villain inside the body of the greatest hero and trying to do good," said Slott. "This is a guy who's got a whole new lease on life. That's really going to change him."

That's right, Doctor Octopus stops being a bad guy and becomes a hero. "We want to do Spider-Man by way of Batman a little creepier and darker," he continued. "Doc behaving in a manner he's not accustomed to. We see a more sympathetic side of Doctor Octopus. We couldn't have a Spider-Man who was running around murdering people. And I have no interest in seeing that sort of character win."

Death threats, really?! Its a comic, and sounds like they are trying something a bit different, never a bad thing.

Controversial indeed. Let me guess, Dr ock will soon become dr c*ck.

But still... He's too iconic. Just because Spidey is replaceable doesn't mean Parker should be. Worst is that there's no good reason to kill him. Characters like him are famed for having episodic immortality, not a fixed cult fandom.

'Fans' making death threats over Twitter accounts should get a f*cking real life.

@ boogiel

haha i saw what you did there with the c*ck and the ock haha good one


I thought the point of comic books was to break new ground, this is pretty new.

In other words, to compete with DC's silly reboot of Batman and the entire DCU, Marvel's f*cking up Spider-Man for increased profits.

Whatever.

Sounds like what they always do in comics anyway, just creating a whole new story arc.

Seriously, these comic nerds need to f*cking chill

Where were these f*ckers when Bay took Transformers like a Priest at the Sacred Heart of JesusChurch and School?

Marvel just took a risk on somebody so they can do like MINK said and feel the need to play one up with DC when it should be the other way around

Yet another example of why I'm glad I quit reading comics years ago.
I'm damned sick and tired of all these continuity-trashing douche nozzles destroying the books I grew up reading.
Marvel and DC can go bankrupt for all I care.

Peter Parker will live again

Ben Reilly did 20 years ago and Parker still live again

don't worry

nobody dies on comic

even Jason Todd live again

Jason Todd coming back was awesome, I thought, but the return of Bruce Wayne, as he traveled through time, would have been a lot more of a headf*ck if his time-traveling had kept his parents from being murdered, which isn't logically consistent, I know, but then neither is anything Grant Morrison has ever written.

Until Marvel revives Runaways, I'll stick to Image Comics and only Image comics.

Spider-man will come back.Didn't they make a big deal about Captain America dying and he came back.....He won't be gone long.

Also anyone making death threats over this kind of stuff is a sad loser with no life.

@Zeroguy- I've been waiting for a new Runaways comic.I really hope it gets made.
