Ultimate Peter Parker aka Spider-Man and Green Goblin went at it in one final battle and literally gave his life for his greater cause. Think he finally realized with the great power comes the responsibility to die for the right thing with your power as a hero. Ultimate Spider-man dying was a shocker to fans, mainly when they first announced it "Death of Spider-Man." we all thought it was earth-616 Spidey and fits were mad, pet stores had a decline in spider sales, and everyone bought silly string and went stir crazy in the streets!..... Ok those last two things didn't happen but still.
