Hey, Jim! Man, once you think Marvel has run out of story ideas... BAM...they hit you with a world shattering event. I guess the poor treatment, writing and over all ignorance from the editors of Ole Webhead and his books for the past decade or so has finally pushed Marvel to go in a completely unexpected direction. Did you know, to my surprise, That Hercules just Killed Spider-Man? I couldn't believe it either.
I was flipping through pages of the new "Assault on Olympus"...and Spidey is there being a nuisance to the Lion of Olympus, and WHAM...a vicious uppercut from Herc. I was blown away. what a way to go out. I mean here is the son of a God, the strongest mortal to walk the Earth, considered to be the greatest fighter, and fiercest warrior of all Olympus, a being that has been observed drop kicking a bulldozer, someone who can lift (press) 100 tons (do you have ANY idea how friggin strong that is??), landing a clear shot to the jaw on a guy who's tendons are twice as elastic as a normal man, and can lift 10 tons ( which is a LOT...but no comparison).
I love Spidey, He's my boy. I grew up on him. I've seen him get his arm dislocated catching himself falling from a building, recovering from bruises, and cracked ribs from duking it out with villains on par with Puma, Hobgoblin, Kingpin, and Doc Ock. BUT HERCULES???? Man what was he thinking? Didn't he learn anything from when he 'fought' the Juggernaut. Guys like those are WAYYYyyy out of his league. He's not invulnerable or anything. I mean, it's not like he could take a pounding thru a brick wall and walk away from it or anything like that. He's just tougher than the average man. That's what his spider sense and his crazy agility and speed are for, to AVOID being hit. Man...this really kind of bummed me out to see him go out like that.
.........ohhh, what? He lived?... He did what? He got punched thru a brick wall by Hercules and walked away from it?.... Seriously?...no you're kidding right?... seriously?... well I guess I was wrong.
Marvel writers and editors still have no clue as to what they are doing.
