The 'Ultimate Spider-Man' Dies

A hero will fall. Marvel's alternative universe will lose a major player... Spider Man.
The lights are going out for Peter Parker, the high school student bitten by a radioactive spider whose wall-crawling and web-slinging antics have made him a touchstone of Marvel Comics' universe of heroes and villains.

The publisher said Tuesday that Parker's alter ego, Spider-Man, will finally succumb to one of his most pernicious foes in the final issue of "Ultimate Comics Spider-Man" due out Wednesday.

Fans of Spider-Man need not worry much, though, because the Ultimates imprint is separate from Marvel's bigger universe. Whatever fate may befall Ultimate Spider-Man won't count in the pages of the other series, including Amazing Spider-Man.
Will he stay dead? Marvel says yes, but we will see.

I'll be reading this in a couple of hours.
Dude, I don't know what the point of the Ult Universe is anymore. They killed Cyclops, Wolverine, Magneto, Xavier. It's an experiment that went awry when Jeph Loeb took the reigns.

I don't pay to much attention to who dies anymore because in another universe they are alive and well.
