Peter Parker Dead
Peter Parker has been killed by some writer at Marvel Comics.
Peter was killed by Doctor Octopus in Amazing Spider-Man #700, 50 years after he was introduced to the world in 1962. The writer says the death is “permanent”. Dr. Octopus will be the new Spider-Man.
In a heart-wrenching plot twist for one of Marvel’s most relatable superheroes, the comic book giant has killed the nerdy, down-on-his-luck science-whiz who first developed an arachnid alter-ego in 1962 and decided to use his “great power” for good. In “Amazing Spider-Man’s” 700th and final issue, Spider-Man loses a final showdown with his arch-nemesis, Doctor Octopus, after which the latter assumes Peter Parker’s body, mind and memories. He decides to take on Spider-Man’s mission for himself, a journey continued in Marvel’s upcoming “Superior Spider-Man.”

Yeah right! Permanent my ass! Was Superman's death permanent, was Captain America's death permanent, was Jean Grey death permanent?
These superheroes have more lives than a cat.
It will turn out that this Peter Parker that died was a clone or was another Peter Parker from an alternate universe.
No death but Captain Marvel so far has been permanent and his was not a superfight death but a death through cancer.
Don't believe it folks! Peter Parker will be back in a couple of years.
What an asinine plot device obviously intended to re-invent and refresh the Spider-man character. Is it really necessary to obliterate the past?
@tonyt_78 The new Ultimate Spider-Man is great though. And there was still the "original" Peter in the original title.
@chesel I'm not a comics fan but WTF di ba? Sheesh! http://t.co/RMm9BcaJ
@hawkeydokey don't worry. a different writer can always undo it. there are so many ways to bring Peter back. Clone, alternate universe, magic...
They've killed off so many others before like Captain America, the whole Avenegers team, Jean Grey.
Trust me, give it about 2 to 3 years, he'll be back.
@MauiKane After two years writing the book, the writer kills his main character off. smh That kind of stunt will lose your reader's trust immediately.
@MauiKane It's such an amateur effort.
@Rickey I agree, Miles Morales is awesome. But, the them killing off Parker is nothing new...
