In the latest issue of Amazing Spider-Man Dan Slott, the comic thespian and fanboy living his dream, took out a beloved incarnation of our famed web-slinger as well as one all but a select handful want to remember.
And so the drums of war rumble on as Spider-Man Unlimited and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends are brutally crushed under the might of Morlun and his family.
The emotions are raging while Spider-Verse continues at a break-neck speed. Casualties will no doubt mount as this mammoth crossover jumps around realities in an attempt to snuff out the various arachnids.
The whole thing is weird for me because I watched both of these when I was a kid. SMAHAF was the first animated version of Spider-Man I bought on VHS. And when the popular 90s iteration that followed it came to a close I watched Unlimited to fill the void. Though, even then, I thought it was a pretty odd but mostly enjoyable experience. And now, as far as the House of Ideas is concerned they’re gone.
I know this is one author that knows his stuff and he’ll pull at the memory banks to make an engaging experience and he won’t hesitate to be a destroyer of worlds. So be ready for your long term data banks to be put to the test, as differing versions of our wall-crawling menace long lost to history enter the cross-hairs of Morlun and his downright dastardly kin.
But I have to ask: who are my fellow webheads looking forward to seeing and maybe even surviving? Are you swooning over the return of SpOck? Or has some of the recently created and re-visited denizens at the Edge of all this struck your fancy?
