    Spiderman reveals his secret identity!

    this sure came as a surprise to me anyone else hear about this before today?

    "NEW YORK - For a comic book hero, it's the ultimate taboo.

    In the latest edition of the Marvel comic "Civil War" on sale, Spiderman does the unthinkable and removes his Spidey mask to publicly reveal his hidden identity.

    "I'm proud of who I am, and I'm here right now to prove it," the legendary webslinger tells a press conference called in New York's Times Square, before pulling off his mask and standing before the massed ranks of reporters as newspaper photographer Peter Parker.

    "Any questions?" Parker asks in the final panel of the issue, amid a barrage of camera flashes.

    In a statement, Marvel trumpeted the revelation as "arguably the most shocking event in comic book history.""

    Holy carp!! I don't read comic books but that's quite a deal there.

    I would hope they aren't doing it because sales are low though?
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    It's probably an alternate universe type thing and they'll change it all again later. Then they'll bring back some dead guy who wasn't really dead. Or was really dead, but brought back anyway.

    yeah, yeah, yeah... funny...

    it's actually a pretty big thing - they have a storyline now running through all major character's books about registering all super-powered individuals with the government. Iron Man just outed himself, and since he's taken Spidey on as his protege of sorts, he's made the decision to follow suit.

    No, Caesar, it's tied in with the current Civil War storyline, where everyone gets to act out of character in the interest of big hero vs hero fights.

    This kind of poop makes me glad I swore off Marvel. Shame, because they have the better characters of the two major companies.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Wasn't Iron Man's identity already known in the Marvel Universe?

    Yes and no. Tony Stark (who has been Iron Man most of the time) made his identity known at one time and has then spend a lot of time covering his tracks up again. At least according to ASM a few months back.

    I knew this was happening. I've read ASM for years. This is far from the worst story line Marvel has ever done this Spidy (the Clone crap and MJ's "death" and separation are the tops in my mind).

    i think this crossover makes more sense than secret wars... and especially more sense than the new REMAKE of secret wars coming down the pike, "beyond"!

    yeah, iron man's id was made public, then he got james rhodes to be iron man to appear next to him in public, so it "proved" he wasn't iron man. then after a while tony started being iron man again, and used remote-control iron man armor suits to appear beside him to still "prove" he wasn't iron man. now he's outed himself again.
