    Ugh. Video....


    1) Huh. You give a good interview, Mr. Slott. Engaging and full of showmanship.
    2) You know, really, I have no idea. There's just too many possible changes. Not just in 700. I mean, there are supposed changes at the end of Ends of the Earth. There are might be changes in the lizard story. In the "danger zone" story. And THEN in the lead-up to what is sure to be a 2-3 times normal size 700. Attempting to predict what will happen in 700 is a fool's errand at this point, since we don't even know what the world will look like in 699.

    Yeah, well, that's what happens when you use one of the worst comics the big two have ever put out as your foundation and try to pretend that nothing's wrong.

    Yes, but the goal is to keep you at 0%, so if YOU suggest it, it's guaranteed not to happen. =p

    Yes, but the odds goes up whenever there's a solicit. Then again, that doesn't help much in my case either.

    I pray that doesn't happen either.

    Oh, and my OFF-THE-WALL crazy, nutty, impossible theory is that Max Moddell dies, Peter loses his job, and he ends up working full-time in the Daily Bugle (again).

    I hope that Peter never works at the Bugle again. It's below his intellect. And I would love to see him complete his Ph.d in Bio-Chemistry.

    Cool. I don't collect Venom but that sounds like a scool issue/story.

    Quote Originally Posted by stillanerd View Post

    Okay, what have been the two main themes that have been running through Amazing Spider-Man since Dan Slott became the sole writer. The first is that Spidey has hit the "Big Time" and "everything is finally going his way. The second has been "no one dies." And notice that, logically, both of those things are unsustainable in the long-run, the first due to the inevitable "Parker Luck" and the second because we know that Spidey can't always save everyone from dying every single time. Well what possible seismic event could happen which would have a profound effect on both Spider-Man and the Marvel Universe, which would also potentially flip those two running themes completely on their head that would also be big enough for Spidey's 700th issue?

    I can think of two possibilities:

    The first is that Spidey, in order to save countless lives, is forced to kill someone else. No death by accident or being falsely accused of murder--Spidey is caught on tape actually killing the villain. Who would that villain be? The one the "dying wish" refers to, of course, but NOT Doc Ock. Rather, the "dying wish" refers to both what Doc Ock promised said villain and what the beloved of that villain said to him before she died. I'm speaking, of course, about the Rhino, a guy who, ever since his wife died, has had a death wish and had nothing left to lose. Heck, maybe it could even fit into an earlier theory I had that Doc Ock's deal with the Rhino was to transfer his mind into the Rhino's body. Or not.

    However, the second possibility is that a major supporting character dies, one who the "dying wish" also refers to. And no, I don't mean Mary Jane; as much as some folks might like that idea, her demise wouldn't be "seismic" enough for the Marvel Universe and besides, she already got killed off once already. No, I'm talking about someone bigger, someone who you wouldn't think Marvel will EVER kill off in a million years. Someone who is so important, so fundamental, so crucial to the Spider-Man mythos that if this person kicks the bucket, it will COMPLETELY and IRREVOCABLY change the way we look at Spider-Man for years.

    I'm talking about J. Jonah Jameson. And no, not J. Jonah Jameson senior this time, but the original, one-and-only former publisher of the Daily Bugle, Mayor of New York, and loveable grouchy ol skinflint, J. Jonah Jameson.

    And how could Jonah die? By doing the one thing we'd never except to see him do: saving Spider-Man's life. And the reason why is because he recalling the "dying wish" of his wife Marla: to let go of his hatred for Spider-Man. And by letting go of his hatred, Jonah ends up sacrificing his life to save Spidey. However, in one last ironic twist, when Spidey carries out the lifeless body of Jonah, it's assumed that Spidey was the one who killed him, and thus, through death, Jonah also achieves his long-time goal in proving Spider-Man to be a menace.

    In either case, Spidey is forced to flee not just from law enforcement but from other super-heroes who know his true identity, meaning he can't risk going to his friends, family, loved ones, or even his job for fear of putting them in danger. However, he gets an offer from someone he can't refuse "Work for me, and I'll see to it that your name gets cleared of all charges." And that person is...The Kingpin. Thus Spidey becomes Wilson Fisk's new Enforcer, taking down bad guys--and even forced to work with other villains on occasion--while at the same time constantly going up against other heroes.

    Then again, I'm sure both of those theories--either Spidey kills someone or Jonah gets killed--are wrong.
    Now I'm happy.

    As for the second theory. Your going with JJJ to die eh?

    I know right? Not even a slight hint lol

    And yes I was wrong as well because like you I was convinced it was gonna be Wacker that shot down the theory lol.

    And more Rhino.
    I've suggested Aunt May earlier. Kind of.

    True he hasn't shot that down yet so your theory could be correct.

    Well I think you're the first person to suggest Max in this thread at least.

    No writer has ever been crazy enough to kill J Jonah Jameson.

    Never happen!

    Never.

    I don't understand why people insist with Peter or Mary Jane dyning. It won't happen, specially Peter and if your reference is Ultimate. Marvel killed Ultimate Peter because they need a shock value after the crap of Ultimatum who put Universe 1610 on the floor again.

    If Slott kills JJJ, I would be very Happy.

    My prediction is that Mary Jane becomes a nun.
