The Startling Surprise Ending to Amazing Spider-Man #700!

It all comes to an end… or a new beginning.


Warning! There will be SPOILERS in this post! So read at your own peril!

The big, epic, glorious Amazing Spider-Man #700 came out this week, the one Marvel and writer Dan Slott have been hyping for months now. It’s the last issue of Amazing Spider-Man, leading into the brand new Superior Spider-Man next month! So what was the big dramatic change that Dan Slott was promising? Does he really have to hide in a bunker from all the fan anger?

We are gathered here today to mourn the loss of Derpy Hooves.

If you’re reading this, then we suspect that you already know who she was; but if not, let me tell you the tale of one special little pony.

Derpy was a recurring background character on the popular cartoon, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She was originally un-named, but an animation error in the second part of the series premiere left her with characteristic “Derpy” eyes. When Internet fans began posting stills from the show to point out the mistake, Derpy became an Internet sensation. And as Derpy began to draw more attention, the show’s fans gave her a name: Derpy Hooves. Afterward, the familiar derp-eyed pony began making frequent appearances in the background of many episodes.
