Spider-Girl bids Goodbye to Readers

Spider-Girl finally ends after so many years flying under the Spider-Man banner for Marvel Comics.

The back story for this wall crawling beauty was simple. She takes on the mantle of the Spider after her father, Peter Parker was finally put out of commission thanks to the Green Goblin years back. With a bad leg, the world saw its last glimpse of the Amazing Spider-Man until May “May Day” Parker decided to take on the responsibility of saving lives and protecting the world as the Amazing Spider-Girl.

What’s even amazing (no pun intended) about the books longevity is the fact that it has been saved from the awful cancellation axe several times already. She’s been through numerous renumberings and reboots but she continues to sell. Which also means that she has a number of loyal fans out there that wont allow her book to bite the bullet.

Her universe, the MC2 Universe also did good when it began but fell short in the long run. Not only is she the only surviving MC2 title available in the market for the last few years, she was also the first. Followed by several “younger generation” legacy characters including the A-Next (the next generation of the Avengers), J2 (The teenage dorky son of Cain Marko, The Juggernaut) and Wild Thing (adventures about Wolverine and Elektra’s daughter, Rina Logan)…

But sadly all good things must come to an end and as the decade closes we all have to bid adieu to May Parker and the rest of her bizaare and weird supporting cast and kooky rogues gallery.

So to you Spider-Girl, thank you for the memories.
