Spiderman Unmasked

Last month, in a stunning move by Marvel Comics, everyone’s favorite wall-crawler unmasked himself. In the comic “Civil War” no. 2, Spiderman called a press conference in Times Square and announced “My name is Peter Parker, and I have been Spiderman since I was 15 years old. Any questions?”

At first it seemed like unprintable blasphemy. Spiderman is hands down the most popular superhero of all time. A lot of us spent a good portion of our young lives reading his comics. We feel like we know him as an old friend. It is almost as if we grew up with him. In a perfect world, his exploits would be considered classic American literature. Even those who do not partake in the comic genre still know of him and the story behind the man.

It is all different now. Our children and grandchildren will not know the same Spidey. We knew Peter Parker as just a regular guy. He was a photographer then a teacher in the later years. He had real world problems that we could relate to. It was the human element about him that we all loved. Now, it seems, that may be gone forever.

It is not the first major change to the beloved comic book characters life since his inception in 1968. Many characters have been killed off. The final battle between Spiderman and the Green Goblin in the first movie was almost a frame by frame playback of the comic in which Gwen Stacy (Pete’s first love) died. The only difference is the fall didn’t kill Mary Jane before she hit the ground, as it did Ms. Stacy. Death has been a reoccurring theme in the wall-crawlers career since the beginning, but never have we seen anything that will impact the marvel world as much as this.

It is not just the comics that are changed. The character will never be the same again. The Peter Parker we once knew and loved is now gone. Now, it is only time that will tell whether the good writers at Marvel Comics can save our greatest hero from the worst peril he has ever faced: the writers at Marvel Comics.
