> I never had a problem with the Crisis concept. Continuity does become barnacles eventually, and one must either switch to a "legend" model (Conan or Legends of the Dark Knight) or reboot the continuity. Personally, I favor the reboot.
I think really there's room to have both versions. One version of the "legend" type to appeal to those who aren't interested in investing in a long term committment. Also good for creators who might want to write a story about a comic character without having to know a long history of the character.
The reboot version - I agree. Honestly I wouldn't have a problem if they did it every few decades.
I was thinking about a way to properly send off Spider-Man.
I really can only think of two. Ones a happy ending and ones a sad ending.
He is gravely injured in a final battle but he recovers. MJ tells him she's pregnant and they live happily ever after.
The other - He dies a hero. He goes through a gauntlet of his greatest villains and saves a lot of his major supporting cast in the end realizing his greatest responsiblity is to save the ones he loves and he gives his life to save MJ. A tragic ending but he'd go out a hero. I of course am not a writer so details would have to be up to someone else.
