Spidey Comic Plot Point Makes News

Actually, with this headline, I was expecting a very sad story about a lonely, costumed man on a subway. The article in question, rather, is about a Marvel Comics plot point revealed in mainstream press sources before its publication in the latest Marvel "this changes everything" mini-series, Civil War.

Although I'm not invested in Spider-Man comics to know how this would hit me as a fan -- whether I would be intrigued by the move or if it would make me feel that Spider-Man was being needlessly pimped out to the latest soon-to-be-forgotten crossover -- its inexplicable nature does provide some problem-solving curiosity. Also to its benefit is that the plot point isn't someone being killed, maimed or raped.
