WARNING: NERD, SPOILER and "OMG YOU'RE THAT OLD"ALERT!
Like many little boys I grew up admiring and following superheroes, and Spider-Man has to be my all-time favorite. Whether he appeared in comics or on television (ala cartoons, live action series, or kids' shows...does anyone remember Spidey on "The Electric Company"? Google it!), I could not get enough of the web-head. You can imagine how ecstatic I was when the newer live-action movies came out (can you believe that was already 11 years ago?!), and how much I appreciated last year's "reboot" of the movie.
So it came as quite a shock when Marvel Comics recently announced the death of Spider-Man's alter ego, Peter Parker. More shocking was the manner in which he died, and the character who replaced Peter as the webslinger (I won't spoil THAT part for you if you don't already know).
Ramsay, who has spent hours
sleeping through appreciating the comics and movies with me, has become protective of our beloved superhero and is still reeling from the plot twist.
