OMG! Spider-Man is dead?! He's only 700!
In Wednesday's The Amazing Spider-Man #700, the final installment of the 50-year-long series, Peter Parker is apparently being killed off for good!
So how does the Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler meet his end? Does Emma Stone catch him upside-down kissing Shailene Woodley?
Nothing so straightforward and sense-making!
He and archenemy Doctor Octopus somehow switched bodies (mad science!), and Peter succumbed to the radiation sickness that was killing Doc Ock.
Conveniently, Peter's body is still around, looking Andrew Garfield-tastic, only it now houses the brain of a super-villain.
Of course, Superman, Batman, Captain America, and Thor have all died and come back before- so is that all we're seeing?
The writers and editors swear the change is permanent, but they're also the ones who magically annulled his marriage to Mary Jane, so consider the source!
You won't pull the mask over our eyes this time! LOLz!
