    "You can only post on message boards if you blindly lap up whatever is published". I didn't realize that was in the TOS when I created my account here.
    He's only saying that you're contradicting yourself. His meaning was clear.

    If you want to put yourself up on a cross, make sure the two-by-fours are sturdy. If you want to proudly proclaim you boycott main-universe Spidey since OMD, fine. Power to you. But why are you expecting martyr-points for boycotting Ultimate Spider-Man after there's no more Ultimate Spider-Man to boycott? Consistency!

    You said you were done with all things Spider-Man. Clearly you're not.

    And yes, yes. Blindly lapping, blah blah. If someone likes something you don't, clearly you're a rebel refusing to give in to the Man and all that. Heard it all before.
    Do I have to pay Marvel to post on these message boards? Does my posting here somehow trickle back to them as supporting Spider-Man? Or can I sit here and express my mourning for a character in a comic book for free?

    Because, and correct me if I'm wrong, you only have to shell out $8 for the comic itself, not the right to speak about it.

    No one is saying anything about any of that. At all.

    You said you were done. "Nothing". A Spider-Man message board is something, even if it is to express your disappointment.

    You wanna talk about the issue. That's fine, I sure as heck can't (and wouldn't) stop ya.

    Right right, I'll just go back to the slums so you can be happy that you chased the bad man away.

I should be telling my kid that Spider-Man is going to be ok, right? Do you think Stephen Wacker and Dan Slott went and made a whole new Spider-Man ongoing, featuring Otto Octavius as Spider-Man for new readers? Who, from the early 1960’s, don’t even know how much of a shock that is and wouldn’t even bother to be upset about it? Really?

    We kind of already see that in Daredevil and the team up with the X-Men where he clocks Wolverine. Now I know he once hit him so hard he flew out of the "unbreakable" glass of Avengers tower during the JMS run, but that was different circumstances. Peter was upset about Tony and MJ and Logan was begging for it.
    You're right, of course, about the endgame. But I think this will be the status quo for the next year to 18 months and, within it, Ock will go from begrudgingly attempting to be heroic, enjoying the accolades while they last before failing again in terrible fashion and raging against the public who, moments ago adored him, that now condemn him. So it will likely be 3 big acts before this story is told.

    But this is what she really looked like!

    Maybe they could bring her back somehow now Ock is the main man?
    So she's kinda like the female version of what Doc is now??? Weird!

Similar to how in Ultimate Spider-Man MJ is blogging about Fury and SHIELD killed Peter. I hope Slott doesn't something interesting with Superior rather then just simply make a Spider-Man comic with Doc Ock as Spider-Man. I want to like this idea and normally I would hate it but I know Peter will probably be back in 2014 for Amazing Spider-Man 2 lol. I really like what Bendis has done with Miles in Ultimate Spider-Man even though I originally hated the idea when I heard about it. I liked Miles by the end of issue 1 lol.
    Yeah, Carly could be another one who picks up that Peter is Ock. We could have like 3 people chasing SSM around hounding him to tell the truth.

    You did the best sum work of my meaning so far. But even you know that sum is up for some very interesting detailed stories for the next (as you put it) year and a half or so! No harm in enjoying it. I know I will! If more of us admitted we are successful adults now, thanks to Stan "the man" Lee, and are able to spend money on Spider-Man comics...

I also liked the part where he and Ock are fighting and Ock makes the web stunt bag. That was really interesting.
    That did sound like an amalgam of Parker and Octavius. I was a bit dubious that Otto could get a hang of the web spinning schtick so easily. I would think a person getting the Spider powers would have a completely different interpretation of how their body moves compared to Peter, but I might be wrong there. Spider mechanics might be pretty generic for all I know.

    With the amount of telepaths in this universe, and the X-Men and Avengers being closer than ever, AND Spider-Man still being on the Avengers, its only a matter of time until the rest of the hero community finds out.
