THE DEATH OF PETER PARKER
Will Peter Parker ever return? Of course. Comics are like your mom’s soap operas. No one ever really remains dead. Whether it was Superman, Captain America, Bruce Wayne or the countless others during DC’s Blackest Night story arc, where there is a will, there is a way. There is an old saying that you never know how much someone means to you until they are gone. Not only does that work profoundly in real life, but in all things that entertain us as well.
“With great power, comes great responsibility.” ~ Uncle Ben to his nephew Peter prior to his own passing that would set Peter on a course to greatness.
His last great act as a hero was to share his memories with Doctor Octopus which will have a lasting affect on the Doctor who now assumes the role of the webslinger. By doing so, he passes on what his uncle had done for him so many years ago. We should all carry ourselves in such a way.
