Spider-Boy is Dead, and Everything is Worse Now
Sometimes something happens in a comic book that chills me to the bone. That really stabs the dagger and twists it. Something happens that is so outside the pale that I take a break from posting movie trailers to share it with all of you. Apologies if this is a spoiler, but I don’t care. The truth must be heard. You must be made aware.
Spider-Boy, the Amalgam Comics combination of Spider-Man and Superboy, has been killed in the Spider-Verse.
This was a blow, let me tell you. Spider-Boy is awesome. All of Amalgam Comics is awesome. And to lose him like this…
It’s definitely him. Just take a look. That’s definitely his arm.
So let me set the scene as best I can. This is a couple of panels from Spider-Man #2, a current comic book telling the End of the Spider-Verse story. I’m not reading and I don’t know what it’s about. But that is Morlun, and he seems to have killed Spider-Boy off-screen.
I understand. Marvel can’t exactly use Spider-Boy freely. So the fact that they’ve used this Easter Egg is actually really awesome! An Amalgam Comics Easter Egg in 2022? My wildest dreams are coming true! But man…why’s he gotta be dead? Couldn’t someone have made a handshake agreement and let him be a full-on character? Can’t we have nice things?!
Either way, the moment needed to be noted. Let’s get some more Amalgam Easter Eggs into our comics.
