    After a fifty year run, Marvel's The Amazing Spider-Man ends today with issue #700.​
    Being that it's comics, this sounds absolutely pants-on-head retarded (and it is), but here's the ending summarized by The Escapist.​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    The new series, The Superior Spider-Man, begins as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative, picking up where The Amazing Spider-Man left off. Yes, with that whole plot twist and all.​

    The amount of butthurt on /co/ the last couple weeks has been entirely hilarious. It wasn't even a bad story, it's just a bunch of whiny manchildren throwing hissy-fits. Apparently Dan Slott (the writer) has even been getting death threats over this.

    Overall, I like the idea and where this is going. There's some definite potential if Marvel doesn't backtrack too quickly after all the backlash, but given how it's still canon that Peter sold his marriage and unborn child to hell I doubt they'll pull the plug on this too prematurely.

    I'm not a Spiderman fan and I don't really read comic books but this ending does sound pretty goddamn stupid, even by comic book standards.

    If they were trying to top One More Day (where Peter Parker sells his marriage to what is essentially the devil, because that is something you can do now), congratulations. Marvel, you've succeeded with flying colors - shitstain brown and wallbanger red.

    And lo, in basements across the world, people with less social skills than Sheldon Cooper did cry and pray to a God they vehemently believe has the face of Stan Lee that this is all just one huge joke.

    ^ Implying that every house has a basement. This has gotten old, you know.

    I don't recall implying that every house has a basement. I was merely making a satirical reference to the notion that comic fans live in basements. Which part of that was so difficult to follow, exactly? Gotta work out the kinks in my material, right?

    Is it that really shitty one?

    I remember I was at a friend's house (Gahars can back me up on this) and it came on the TV late at night. I just sat their cringing at the horribleness of the show.

    I Wikipedia'd it and yeah it's the shitty one.

    Like it's funny if you're seven and mentally ill. Literally one of the "jokes" in the show was Spiderman just randomly going "IF ONLY I HAD A JETPACK" then it cuts to some fantasy of his a la Scrubs of him riding a jetpack going "WOOHOO" for a split second before cutting back.

    Because writing good jokes is hard.

    I watched one episode and I already got the sense of humor.

    If I wanted to watch a good cartoon I'd watch Avatar or Adventure Time.

    It was almost as bad as Garfield.
