Peter Parker aka Spiderman is killed by the Green Goblin! So what?

Asked by filmfann (52297points) June 26th, 2011

In the next issue of Marvel’s Ultimate Comics SpiderMan, Spidey gets killed during a battle with the Green Goblin.
So what?
We have seen Superman killed off, only to return. Batman’s back was broken, and he recovered, and fights again. Captain America’s Steve Rogers was killed in 2007, but now is back in an intelligence role, while Bucky takes the C.A. shield.
So, can we take seriously the story thread of SpiderMan getting killed off? Don’t we expect his return? If that is true, what is the point, other than to sell comic books.
BTW, the Ultimate Comics is an alternate universe. PP will still be on Broadway, another movie reboot, and other comics. Does that make a difference?
