In a move that will change the Wall-Crawler's life, Spider-Man unmasked to the world and revealed that he is Peter Parker. In the pages of Civil War #2, Marvel's summer blockbuster series, Spider-Man shockingly reveals his secret identity at a press conference.
Civil War has erupted in the Marvel Universe as heroes fight heroes over the passing of the Superhuman Registration Act. After a terrible accident involving young heroes leads to the deaths of several hundred innocent people, Congress passes a law declaring that all super-powered vigilantes must register with the government.
This divides the superhero community as some heroes register while the other half becomes wanted criminals. The leader of the Pro-Registration side, Iron Man, convinces Spider-Man that heroes need to be held accountable, just as law enforcement is, and that to make a statement for their cause, he needs to unmask to the world. In a milestone moment in comics history, Peter does the unthinkable and reveals his secret identity.
Peter Parker's life will take a dangerous turn, including his deadliest villains, know the secret he has been keeping since a radioactive spider bit him, giving him the proportionate strength and abilities of a spider.
Will Peter Parker live to regret his decision or will he be a leader in legitimizing superheroes in the eyes of a public that has lost faith in them? From the looks of the cover to Civil War #5 seen here, Spider-Man's greatest villains are going to ensure that Peter's life doesn't get any easier either way.
The only place to find out is your local comic store as the fallout from Peter's decision is felt in the summer event Civil War and the Civil War tie-ins. Also, see how the biggest decision of Spider-Man's life plays out in all of the Spider-Man titles, which will feature a "SPIDER-MAN UNMASKED" banner to call out that the next chapter in the Spider-Man mythos is happening here.
