    SPIDER-MAN'S alter ego Peter Parker will be killed off, comic book bosses have revealed.
    The crime-fighting science geek will meet his end in a spin-off version of the original Marvel comic series that made him famous.
    The last edition of the Ultimate Spider-Man series — which formed the basis for the blockbuster movies starring Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield — will see Parker die after he saves his Aunt May from the Green Goblin.
    And his demise paves the way for a new Spidey — complete with a new costume — to take his place this summer.
    Kristian Barry, 39, owner of online store The Comic Guru, described Parker's death as "huge".
    He said: "It's the title that launched Spider-Man in the movies. We've been waiting for this."
    Despite Parker featuring in other comics, the Ultimate series — which re-imagined his story for a modern audience — is closest to the Hollywood films.

    It has an estimated 150,000 fans in the UK — and up to a million worldwide. In it, high school student Parker gets his powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider.
    He is driven to becoming the masked crusader when he fails to save the life of Uncle Ben.
    Parker will live on in Marvel's original Amazing Spider-Man but Ultimate series writer Brian Bendis said the character's death was the "real point" to this version.
    He explained the death would be "truly heroic and sacrificial", adding: "This is the last hurrah. This is it.
    "There is a real point to this, and the point doesn't work if we don't stick to our guns."
    The last adventure of Peter Parker is out tomorrow, Wednesday, June 22.
