The wake of destruction left by Amazing Spider-Man #700, which was
leaked purposely to generate buzz spoiled by a dastardly ne'er-do-well, continues to cause heartbreak and tragedy. Earlier in the week, writer Dan Slott, currently in hiding to avoid fallout from the comic, received death threats via social media in response to the events depicted in the comic. Today, a video was released on YouTube showing an golden eagle in Montreal, fed up with the treatment of a beloved character, attempting to kidnap a human baby. While the child survived the attack, he still found himself surrounded by French Canadians, a fate worse than death.
Slott declined to comment on the event, and has not denied accusations that he banged the eagle's mom.
While many believe the video to be a fake, avian abduction has been a menace to human society for more than a century, as evidenced by this article on the NY Times website about an eagle-perpetrated child abduction in England at the beginning of the twentieth century. The 1904 abduction is rumored to have been a response to a controversial plotline in the popular comic strip Hogan's Alley, in which the character Yellow Kid is revealed to actually be a light shade of ocher. The plotline caused an uproar via angry letter writing, the old fashioned version of the internet, but eventually petered out because it took seven years to generate the equivalent of one single angry facebook thread, and because Hitler did not exist yet, and comparing one's opponents to Napoleon simply didn't carry the same weight of insult.
Amazing Spider-Man #700 hits stores on December 26. View the chilling eagle attack in the video below.
