    [QUOTE=EliParker;16192337]I didn't like the line that Uncle Ben said you can let someone else be Spider-man. I however enjoyed the preview and the writing was well written.

    Spider-man isn't a mantle, it is a person. That person is Peter Parker, if Marvel wants to continue with this idea that Spider-man is a mantle then I'm done with them. I'll pick up the first issue and Spider-man isn't Peter then I'm done. I disliked in the Ultimate World and I'm not going to enjoy it in the 616 world. I hope that the relaunch is a red herring or something else as I believe only Peter Parker can be Spider-man (and not his clone, but that is for another rant on another day).[/

    I thought the preview ended with Ben asking Peter to get up and fight one more time.

    Uncle Ben telling him he doesn't to be Spider-Man anymore could potentially be huge if Dan wanted to go that way with it.

    The greatest source of guilt responsible for him being a superhero, if Ben told him to lay down his burden, I think thats the only thing that could ever convince him to stop if he wanted to.

    I don't think he wants to but I think it's an interesting moment.

    It was the part where Ben said that Peter Parker can rest when it is all over and someone else can be Spider-man

    I wonder if Alpha may become the new Superior Spider-Man...

    I rather see a new Peter clone become Spidey

    My theory:

    - The only way to defeat Ock is killing Peter (the body that Doc Ock possesses)
    - Who could do that? Norman Osborn.
    - Then both dies. Peter and Ock at the same time.
    - Who's the new Spider-Man. I don't know, but probably not Peter Parker.

    Peter hijacking Norman's comatose body to defeat Doc Ock would be hilarious.

    ..which is exactly why I need to see it.

    And keep in mind, we never actually did see HOW Norman Osborn woke up from his coma and escaped, did we? Certainty such a scenario would answer that question.

    So it light of that and what we know about Amazing Spider-Man #698, it's a safe assumption to put two-and-two together, I think.
    True but if that was the case they could easily have just released the preview a few days or a week later and they wouldn't have had to censor the page. That's why I think there's a bit more to this. Although Marvel could've just been over eager to get the preview out or they just want to make us go crazy about it for a month. We'll know when we need to.

    I just saw the spoilers for 698 and I don't like it one bit. Having Peter hijack Norman's body would be a great what if issue. It should be title What if Peter is No More in that One Moment in Time?

    Where are Ben, the original Madame Web, and Mattie?

    It'd be interesting to see May (baby) as well.
    There are a bunch of distant figures in the background. They could easily be there.

    Peter's mind seems to be going, though. Timmy Harrison is the Kid Who Collects Spider-Man; Tim Hammond is the kid from Jurassic Park.

    i assumed Uncle Ben was being figurative... He's saying, "Let someone else be a super-hero"...

    Rounding out the 50th anniversary of Spider-Man by killing him and replacing him with someone else is an incredibly bad marketing move. As I mentioned in other threads, I wish Slott and Marvel the best, but if I wanted to read about a more ballsy and violent Spider-Man, I'd pick up 'Scarlet Spider' or 'Venom'. I see this as just another silly plot twist that isn't needed, especially one that seemingly has Peter die in a body riddled with cancer.

    Oh well, at least the new Thor and Fantastic Four sound interesting. If after 700 Peter Parker (in mind, body and soul) is not Spider-Man, I'll be out. Especially when no Spider-title at Marvel features THE Spider-Man.

    Again, nothing but best wishes for Slott. It has been a great run, and I'm saddened to leave.

    From the look of him I'd hazard a guess that it is the late, not-so-lamented Fred Foswell; a reporter at the Daily Bugle from back in the Lee-Ditko days who was revealed to be the original Big Man (a crime lord of NYC).
