    Hope this helps everybody out. (For those coming in late) This involves Morlun (JMS' creation) a villain Spider-Man has never defeated. He's come back to finish feeding on/killing Spider-Man. JMS introduced this character in the first year he started writing Amazing Spider-Man.

    Forgive me for the correction ... but Spidey certainly defeated Morlun back in ASM #35(ish), by lacing his body with radiation that Morlun absorbed when he tried to feed on him. He was then shot by his "companion" and all the police found left behind on the floor was a smear.

    I guess he wasn't dead after all.

      JMS has even said Spider-Man never defeated Morlun. Morlun's assistant/slave did the deed. Also, due to Morlun's nature Spider-Man can not afford to just defeat Morlun, but Spider-Man is faced with the issue of killing Morlun to stay alive, defeating Morlun allows him to keep coming back (my understanding/interpretation of the previous Morlun story arc). More importantly, Spidey had Ezekiel's help & the assistant/slave's help in defeating Morlun, he has neither currently (remains to be seen). However, with his current Avengers affiliation I'm curious if and how JMS will/will not involve them in the story. A thought just occured: there is one member of the New Avengers that has no qualms with taking someone's live away permanently...Wolverine.

        That's why I love the Morlun character. It forces Peter to address an important question, i.e. how far is he prepared to go in order to protect himself and those he loves. IIRC the reason Dex had to "do the deed" was that SM was in two minds over the answer to that question ... but it has been a while since I read it.

        It will be interesting to see how the three writers pull the whole thing together ... Peter David is coming into a brand new comic with a clean slate, and the other (I forget his name) writer presumably has his own slightly different continuity going in Marvel Knights.

          Reginald Hudlin is writing Marvel Knights Spider-Man. If you haven't read his take on Spider-Man, then you're missing out on some great stories. He knows how to write the character of Spider-Man: the burden, the goofiness and the banter. I've read Spider-Man a long time, and some writers don't understand Spider-Man's banter, they just have him talking a lot. I've read the first two parts of The Other event by Peter David; he does a good job, but his comedy in Spider-Man tends toward the cheese, whereas Hudlin's comedic writing hits the right comedy notes. You'll know what I'm talking about when you read his Spider-Man stories. I hope EVERYONE enjoys this megaevent. I'm totally psyched about the upcoming stories.
