Peter Parker (Spider-Man) dies.

Peter Parker has spun his last web.

In the storyline that has garnered the attention of fans and media worldwide, Peter Parker meets his tragic end in ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #160, hitting stores tomorrow -- Wednesday, June 22. Concluding the critically-acclaimed, sold-out “Death of Spider-Man” story arc, the death of Peter Parker signals a major change for the Ultimate Comics Universe and sets the stage for the upcoming debut of an all-new Spider-Man.

“10 years ago, Brian Bendis and Mark Millar changed the way people saw super heroes with the birth of the Ultimate Universe. With ‘Death of Spider-Man’ the two have done it again, creating a story just as big, and something that would really resonate with fans.” said Mark Paniccia, Marvel Senior Editor. “But Peter’s death doesn’t signal the end of their larger plan—it’s the start of one of the most ambitious stories you’ve ever read in comics.”

And you can bet that Peter's death doesn't signal the end of ... Peter Parker, either. Remember, here's why.

Color me bored.

I think I prefer the Beowulf epic story telling of Naruto or Bleach, however. DBZ got a little into the whole reincarnation/resurrection thing, although it was for kids to begin with, and only Z for teenagers.

At least their death defying escapades are pretty dramatic and exciting, in a uniquely Japanese epic story telling kind of way.
