...if this 'August Big Deal' has anything to do with Spider-Man, my guess is it won't have anything to do with his past, but his present.

He's working as a school teacher.

Schools. What's everyone all up in arms about happening in Schools.

I mean, if you're gonna be topical, BE TOPICAL. Peter's job in a school is a perfect way to work it into a story, and a perfect way to remind people who Peter was, by having him conflicted about what lead up to the incident.

That said, it may have nothing to do with existing characters.

I have a feeling everyone's wrong.

I have a constant feeling that Rich Johnston is always wrong, and when he's right it's just dumb luck,

I'm up in arms about that anywhere. Guns suck, let's melt them to slag. I'm serious \:\)

Exactly, he should probably loathe guns as much as Batman does. (Of course, so should anyone who *hasn't* lost anyone because of them yet)

And considering two years ago they messed with the programming of Buffy because of those shootings, I can see this being controversial. It certainly was when the Batman one-shot came out, a lot of fans were disgusted with the anti-gun view, if I remember well. Tough ninnies on them...

Besides, Peter working in a school where nobody carries guns would be about as hard to believe as one of us acquiring Spidey-powers for really real ;\)

Or it's just hype. Quemas love hype.

I'm always wrong in how I'm right \:p

Hee ;\)
He's only giving it two stars or whatever in likeliness, so I'm thinking this particular rumour is as wrong as they come.

The real controversy will hopefully be something tasteful and important. Not something pointless and contrived and Springerish. I wonder if that word'll make it in the dictionary...

Toodles
