    New York Post reveals Civil War #2 shocker!

    I guess this is a spoiler, so, be warned.

    Wow, even though Marvel tipped their hand last week with releasing Thunderbolts too early, they flat out REVEAL the surprise shocker of Civil War #2. Why dance around it? I guess if they were afraid that if no one heard about it from reading the comic with a 20,000 circ, they might as well try again to blab the ending to a Top-10 circ newspaper in the country. I don’t really understand the strategy behind that one.

    COMIC HERO REVEALS ID
    By DAREH GREGORIAN

    June 14, 2006 — Spider-Man’s identity is about to become not-so-secret.
    “My name is Peter Parker and I’ve been Spider-Man since I was 15 years old. Any questions?” the web wonder proclaims at a Times Square press conference in the comic “Civil War” No. 2, on sale today.

    The announcement is the biggest change in the comic-book icon’s status quo since he got hitched to Mary Jane Watson in 1987.
    Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada called it “one of the biggest revelations in comic-book history.” What Spider-Man does is “a comic-book taboo,” he said.

    The character comes out to support the Super-Hero Registration Act. The law, enacted after hundreds were killed in a superhero-supervillain fight, requires all superheroes to reveal their identities and register as “living weapons of mass destruction.”

    GAWKER JOINS IN THE FUN:
    A breaking story from The Post’s national news desk: Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Yes, that’s right, Dareh Gregorian apparently attended the “Times Square press conference” where the web-slinger appeared “to support the Super-Hero Registration Act. The law, enacted after hundreds were killed in a superhero-supervillain fight, requires all superheroes to reveal their identities and register as ‘living weapons of mass destruction.’” Lest some of you hard-core reality addicts out there object to straight reporting about a work of fiction, remember: It’s The Post. Also, you must have missed last week’s exclusive interview with Iron Man, where he admitted that he’d been sodomized by members of the Duke lacrosse team.
