Peter Parker Death Spurs Threats

  • The 700th and final issue of "The Amazing Spider-Man" from Marvel Comics was out Wednesday; the comic shocked fans when Peter Parker as Spider-Man loses his final showdown with his arch enemy Doctor Octopus. Peter Parker gets trapped in Dr. Octopus cancer-ravaged body and dies while the doctor assumes Spider-Man's body and memories. Writer Dan Slott, who has been penning Spider-Man's adventures for almost 70 issues now, has been receiving death threats following the demise of one of the world's favorite superheroes. Spider-Man fans need not lose heart, promised Marvel Comics, since Dr. Octopus will assume Spider-Man's mission for himself and continue as the "Superior Spider-Man."
