I cant see them actually killing Peter off. I mean, look how well that worked out when they tried it in The Other.

But that was a whole 7 years ago, so they're probably banking on everyone having forgotten that by now. Marvel loves to repeat themselves.

If they do a universe swap I will be very upset.

We lose the Spectacular Spider-Man show for that abomination Ultimate Spider-Man.

We're getting a re-boot of the cinematic Spider-Man and instead of going with a really fun faithful adaptation like The Avengers, it looks like their going "dark & gritty" and further away from the source material than the Raimi films.

But, Dan Slott has managed to restore Spidey comics to greatness after the utter mess of that was One More Day/Brand New Day/One Moment In Time crapfest!

So now there are plans for the Spider-Man comics that will "break the internet in half?"




Seriously, it's like someone is saying, "Hey, you're pushing 50, stop being a fan of Spider-Man!"

TASM is not "dark and gritty", it's simply not as lighthearted as Raimi's Spider-Man was, at least, it looks that way at face value. Recent reviews have said that Spidey is back and there's a lot of humour, so don't worry, friend.

Although the more contemporary and Ultimate comics-influence may put older fans and/or die hard purists of 616 Spidey off.

The Ultimate Spider-Man is not a "real" Spider-Man... never was... has always been a cheap photocopy....

Meh. ASM has gotten dipped between good to boring to bad for me too often. I like it, but I'll take USM (pre-Miles) any day of the week.

Everyone has their Spider-Man, mine's USM.

Eh, when the Raimi films came out, I was loving so much what he got right, I tended to ignore the things that weren't right or I didn't like.

When I heard it was to be re-booted, I was hopeful it would be more faithful, something in line with Spectacular Spider-Man. From what I've seen, it seems even less.

Please, Dan, the Amazing Spider-Man comic is the only thing going so well with Spidey, do in large part because of you! Please don't derail it!

More faithful = in line with Spectacular Spider-Man? I don't follow. SSM took a lot of liberties with the canon.

It's funny, because I actually do get a TSSM vibe from TASM. Which is great, because I loved TSSM!

Oh, I agree on both counts. I just think it's funny that SSM is being called faithful.

If OMD is reversed I would be interested in actually buying the book again but if not. I have a lot of old Spidey comics I can go back and read.

The key is I said more faithful. Is it 100% copy of the comic? No. Did it borrow some elements and made a few changes? Yes. But, I have been reading The Amazing Spider-Man since 1973. When you look at all the adaptations of Spidey, the live action TV show from the 70's, the Sam Raimi films, and all the cartoons, from the 60's Spider-Man cartoon all the way up to and including the present Ultimate Spider-Man, the one that gets the character the best, gets the tone best, between humor & seriousness, and yes, closest to the comic continuity, for my money, is definitely The Spectacular Spider-Man!

I'd argue strongly that the 90's animated series was much closer to the canon. Were they hamstrung by rules about what kind of violence they could show? Clearly. But pound for pound, that series was the most faithful adaptation of the source material.

And I would strongly disagree. The hamstrung rules doesn't have anything to do with it. The 90's show was faithful, but it is the second most faithful. The 90's had just as many if not more deviations from the source. Of the two, for me, Spectacular's changes were the less, um. intrusive shall we say, of the two.

Anyway, isn't the discussion suppose to be about the "internet breaking" ASM #700?

I feel like its like cheating when you're double and tripping shipping to reach these milestones.

ASM reaching #700 this quickly is almost as irksome as Action Comics being almost a hundred issues ahead of Detective just because Action was a weekly for a couple of years.
