Celebrate Spidey's 50th Anniversary by ending The Amazing Spider-Man at issue 700
Spidey has had his ups and downs in both comics and other media. He's had good and bad games, good and bad movies and of course, good and bad Comics*cough* One More Day*cough*. Despite a new good Spidey movie replacing Spidey 3 and of course ScrewAttack's Amazing DEATHBATTLE of Spider-Man and Batman Marvel has decided to end The Amazing Spider-Man at issue 700 in December.
This being a huge kick to the nuts to not just Spidey fans, but also to the character since this is Spidey's 50th Anniversary. Marvel has announced if Spidey is going to be Rebooted into Marvel Now!, but the 700th Issue will have 5 variant covers, four of which will have 104 Pages.
The Final variant Covers will be
- The Wraparound Cover
- The Oliver Coipel Cover
- The ....Joe Quesada Cover...(DAMN YOU QUESADA FOR ONE MORE DAY!!!!!!)
- And a 50th Anniversary variant...(how subtle)
What are your thoughts on Marvel possibly ending Spider-Man without being rebooted into Marvel Now!?
Huh boy, I wish that was the case...
It made it to 700 issues? Good gosh....I knew there were many....but 700? I have trouble wrapping my head around that number....still, great job on getting to that number!
Uhm, yeah, it's not a reboot. Marvel Now! is just a re-start for the numbering system and possible re-title of it's main series. To be exact, it's similar to New 52, they keep the story that's been going so far, just refferencing it here and there, but use a new simple story arc to attract new people to the comic before bringing back old plot points. This has happened before, people, in 1998 to be exact and it was just a time skip. Don't worry, this relaunch wont affect the Spidey we all know and love.
Yeah there must ending one line of the Spiderman comics, other franchises like Xmen have seen comic lines come and go to. I guess this is an extraordinary case because this line has been around for quite a while.
If Sam Raimi's 2002 Spider-Man is still fresh in your memory, there's a good chance the new reboot might feel boringly familiar.Despite its faults - the standard-issue storyline, the 138-minute running time, a thankless role for Irrfan Khan, and the gratuitous 3D - this reboot of the Spider-Man saga rests almost entirely on the romance between its leads. Indeed, Garfield and Stone alone make this movie worth your time.
Agree with solud snake
I agree. Mostly a copy and paste of Spider-Man 1.
All good things must come to an end. And the longer you milk the cash cow, the more likely the product will become dry. Spiderman will always be cool in my opinion, but it's time for him to close curtain. And what better way to end Spidey's adventures than with the bang of his 700th comic on his 50th birthday. Spiderman, we love you.
Um...."new good movie"? The Amazing Spider-man sucked.
So I guess that Spidey is never going to beat the Devil and undo the deal? EVIL WINS! ...........yaaaay..........
700 issues and 50 years, with countless generations moved in some way by the actions of our friendly neighborhood webslinger. If they want to end this series, let it end. It has served a great deal of time. However, even if Marvel ends Spiderman, we all know Spidey will never truly die, what with the amazing tales we will no doubt retell to future generations in the years to come.
So Amazing Spider-man is ending at issue 700, Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't there other Spider-man books? and I don't mean Ultimate spider-man, but aren't there books like Spectacular Spider-man or Avenging Spider-man? I Gave up on marvel after Civil War, One More Day, and Marvel Zombies so I'm not 100% up to date. If this is Marvel trying to do a New 52 thing, I think that's all for the better.
They're rebooting him? Might just be a new comic. The Ultimate universe in my opinion serves a reboot anyway.
I'm interested to see how they do this - Marvel don't treat Spider-Man like Megaman treat Capcom or anything, and aside from a few choice comics like One More Day, One Moment In Time, and Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man, none of which come close to negating the awesomeness of the good comics, ie, every comic I didn't just mention, they've written him well. I'm sure they'll do a decent job.
That said, my initial reaction was a rather loud NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooOOOOOOOOOoooooooooOOOOOOOOOo0000000oooooooOOOO0000ooooo
I've heard people say MJ may die on this one - making some life altering decisions to Spidey. I just hope them wrong
This is just another Grand Renumbering ala The New 52...
Spidey can hang out in the Bar of Disrespected Characters with Mega Man and discuss how their companies don't properly utilize them anymore.
Just reboot him already Marvel! Put him back in high school were he belongs (and how you been writing him since always, even when he was an adult). At least at that age he has an excuse for keeping making stupid mistakes again, and again, and again. That way we can put One More Day behind us!
Actually I can't wait for the character to be rebooted. The writers keep writing him like he was in high school even though he has been an adult to a long time. And his character development is like a freaking boomerang, it always go back to the same crap. Marvel doesn't want Spdierman to be more realistic and deal with real life problems (like marriage) even though ironically people say they can relate to him.
