Road road ahead for Spider-Man

If you read “Civil War” No. 2 or today’s People column in The Gazette, you know: Spider-Man has revealed to the world his true identity, Peter Parker.

Marvel today released the above cover to “Civil War” No. 5, indicating that Spidey has some tough times ahead. Upcoming “Spider-Man” titles, meanwhile, will carry a “Spider-Man unmasked” banner as they examine the repercussions of Spider-Man’s decision.

So, what do you think? I see it as a gutsy move by Marvel, but worry Peter’s beloved Aunt May or Mary Jane may pay a steep price for his decision. Of course, in a world where the Scarlet Witch can eliminate most of Earth’s mutants with the words “No more mutants,” anything could happen: Everyone could have their minds wiped and Spidey could go back to normal. But I don’t see that happening.
