Si chiude con il numero 700 Amazing Spider-Man, una delle serie a fumetti più popolari degli ultimi 50 anni.
Tuttavia la morte di Peter Parker segnerà la rinascita dell'Uomo Ragno nelle vesti del suo acerrimo nemico Doctor Octopus.
Il mese prossimo l'albo della Marvel tornerà in edicola con un reboot dal titolo Superior Spider-Man.
When we first met Peter Parker, he was a teenage bespectacled nerd who resented all the other kids. One of his first lines was, "Some day I'll show them all! Some day they'll be sorry they ever laughed at me." That's not something a hero would say. If Peter had never learned the lesson of "great power and great responsibility," there's every chance he would have become a supervillain.
And then you have Otto Octavius, a bespectacled scientist who, after his radioactive accident, became the eight-legged Doctor Octopus. For all intents and purposes, he was the adult Peter could have become, Spider-Man's dark reflection. So what if we flipped it? What if we gave him a second chance? Peter's final, heroic act was giving Doc all the memories and experiences that kept him on the right path. But is that enough? Can that overcome Ock's true nature?
