This Spider-Man Spoiler Will Make Your Spidey-Sense Sad

June 22, 2011

A huge spoiler for the comic book universe has hit the web for the world's most iconic web-slinger, so if you don't like to be spoiled and/or sad, you might want to stop reading now.

USA Today reports that Issue 160 of the Ultimate Spider Man will kill off the iconic superhero. Spider Man/Peter Parker dies at the hands of the Green Goblin following his escape from S.H.I.E.L.D. The good news is he dies perhaps the most heroic death in the history of hero-dom by saving Aunt May and Gwen Stacy at the same time before slowly passing in the arms of his beloved Mary Jane.

If having to spend half of your life savings to see the original version of the Spider-Man musical didn't make your tear ducts overflow, then this will.
