Stan Lee was tweeting with current Spider-man writer Dan Slott on twitter in regards to shocking going ons in the latest Amazing Spider-Man comic book. If you don't know already...
Doctor Octopus transferred his mind into the body of Spider-man, while putting Peter Parker's mind into his decrepit body....which dies.
Well, Good 'ol Stan celebrates his 90th birthday on December 28th and tweeted this message to Dan:
@DanSlott what a gift, some guys give a nice cigar, a watch, but no not you, I get a dead #PeterParker Thanks for the bday wishes my friend!
Stan should have made a spoiler alert (like the one I just did above) as he tweeted that revelation to his nearly half million followers who may not have had a chance to read the issue in question, Amazing Spider-man #700, LOL. In all fairness, many news sites had already been letting the cat out of the bag, as noted in Stan's tweet about MTV Geek's coverage.
Either way, Happy Birthday Stan! And good-bye Peter Parker.
