Holy Crap! Marvel Has Killed The Hostess Spokesman Spider-Man


Mmmmmm Twinkies

If you are a comic book reader of a certain age then you have fond memories of the ads for Hostess snacks that used to appear in the comics of the day. Super-heroes would face off against all manner of villains and defeat them by using the sugary goodness of a Twinkie, Ho Ho or fruit pie. All the heroes got in on the act but the most prolific were Batman and Spider-Man. So it was a sad day indeed when I read that Hostess Spidey was going to get deaded as part of this “Spider-Verse” currently crossover running through the Spider-Man books.

“Spider-Verse” focuses on a Spider-Man villain named Morlun and his family who traverse dimensions feeding on the Spider-People they come across. This causes all of the Spider-People to band together to try and stop Morlan and company.
Sadly no one was able to get to poor Hostess Spidey before Morlun did.

How could he pass up all those tasty fruit pies though?

Thanks to Dan Slott and Ty Templeton for destroying my childhood memories. If these evil bastiches kill Peter Porker, Spider-Ham then there will be hell to pay.
Pick up a copy of SPIDER-VERSE #1 to share in my trauma.
