    Uh, why isn't he wearing his spider armor?

    God dammit! I'm tired of everyone unmasking Spider-man.

    Hmmm, I think Marvel will "reverse" Parker's decision somewhere down the road.

    The shock-value initially will be there but after going through various story arcs whereby Parker's loved ones are placed in considerable danger, its going to get real boring fast...IMO.

    After my initial reaction, I too think that this is either faked somehow (by Marvel, not the poster) or they'll reverse it somehow. At least I hope that's the way it is.

    And so begins the countdown until this is retconned away...

    One nitpick: From the angle Peter's standing, the podium appears to be in front of him...but the camera flashes are all coming from the side. Shoudn't the camera people be standing in front of him to get a picture of his face?

    Can't the Spider-Armor change appearance to resemble his old costume though?

    this is probably Joe's way of ending the marriage. Angry supervillian knows Peter's wife. BANG. Widow Peter = swingin' single.

    But Joe has stated that a widowed Peter is just as bad as a divorced one.
    Still I think its funny that Joe's been bitchin' about how they can't write good Spidey stories because he's married and then he goes and pulls this.
    Couldn't you say that there are hundred's of stories that you can't tell with an unmasked Spiderman that you could if he was masked?

    Read the latest ASM - 532. May makes him a new original costume so everyone knows it's him. In fact read ASM 532 anyway as it's crucial to understanding why he did it.

    Payres, maybe I'm an idiot, but what do you mean? Speedball isn't dead.

    Exactly. Joe spends months yanking our chain about killing Speedball, which hypes up the Civil War launch, they wipe out the New Warriors, and Speedball survives.

    Joe then spends months yakking about how the spidey marriage is no good. He's most likely spent months lying about that as well just to hype us up into thinking he's going to off MJ.

    Spider Man's secret ID coming out opens up all sorts of danger for the supporting cast that wasn't there before, and we all think she's not long for this world.....

    's all just hype.

    Millar on whose idea it was for the reveal:

    And it seems right now he and various Millarworld mods have the same Spider-Man avatar.

    I'm sure Joe Q will explain his rationale over at newsarama, but I'm still not really buying it. Honestly, when I first saw the image my first thought was "well, I guess they'll figure out a way for this not to count, just like in Infinity Gauntlet."

    A major turning point, but I'll see how the revelation plays out in the end (with more twists and turns-gasp!).

    Spidey, you never cease to amaze me with your inept decisions at times.
