Marvelousnews.com has information on the upcoming death of Spiderman.
In recent forum discussions many people have remarked on how some trips to the local comic shop feels like a time warp to the 90s with stories being recycled. Lady Death, Time Storm, and Doomsday seem to be jumping off of the 90s comic shelves onto the modern comic shop shelves. In that rash of “Let’s Party Like It’s 1999″ Death of_________ seems to be catching on again. Spiderman is the most recent character to be rumored to die.
Spiderman will be dying in a story arc coming up in the 2011.
Death of Spiderman is described as a
ground breaking new story that forever changes the Ultimate Comics universe
Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar kick off the ultimate Ultimate event in Feb 2011 with Spider-Man #153 which continues into Avengers vs New Ultimates #1.
“As a group and as individuals we have made a conscious effort to create stories this year that no one has ever seen before,” said Bendis. “I am very, very proud to be a part of this storyline and very proud of Marvel for even attempting such a bold endeavor. Sit back and watch as we unveil a storyline unlike any other!!”
The Ultimate line debuted over ten years ago with Ultimate Spider-Man #1. The line, which was a reboot of the Marvel universe, has been very successful.
