In this day and age of big brother and assaults on privacy by the media nobody is left unharmed. It is with a sad heart that we read that in issue number two of Marvel Comic's Civil War the unthinkable has occured. Following a new act by congress called the "Super Hero Registration Act" the hero formerly known as Spiderman faces the choice of either coming clean and revealing his identity or stay anonymous but live the life of a criminal.
The result: Spiderman chooses to abide by the law. "My name is Peter Parker and I've been spiderman since I was fifteen years old". Marvel has trumpeted the relevation as "arguably the most shocking event in comic book history." I'd love to see the face of Peter Parker's news editor after the relevation.
