Bullying the Amazing Spider-man: Transformations, Literal & Otherwise

Spidey, Morlun & Ezekiel
Ripped and tattered, blood-dripping clothing is all that's left of Spider-man's costume after his battle with Morlun. With only a second to spare, he places a call to Aunt May to let her know that he loves her; to let her know that he thanks her for everything. It's the good bye call. Spider-man knows that he can't beat Morlun and so he's going to die. Just a few days earlier, a mysterious billionaire man - older than Peter - warns Spider-man of his impending doom. Morlun is an ancient Spider-man killer who feasts on Spider-man energy that comes not from a radioactive spider, but from a magical one that bit Parker and others like him around the world. He is next. Also: This mysterious man climbs walls too and knows what he's talking about. Around this time, Parker goes back to high school to help out as teacher. But while there, he finds students being bullied just like when he was young. He tries to save them only to be chastised by gym teacher Kyle Jacoby, "The only way to get by is on your own two feet." Therein, likes a drama, written by J.M. Straczynski called, Transformations: Literal and Otherwise. A story about magical spiders. A story about Spider-man killers. A story about bullying.
