You have to hand it to Marvel, this was likely one of the longest deaths of a major character until they decided to undead her, okay, from another Universe but still..
“You’re the creep who’s going to pay! I’m going to get you, Goblin! I’m going to destroy you slowly, and when you start begging for me to end it – I’m going to remind you of one thing – You KILLED the woman I love! And for that you’re going to DIE!” -Peter Parker (Spider-Man)
