This question's been bugging me for years. How did norman osborn survive at the end of 'final curtain'? I'd hate for that cliffhanger to be left unresolved!

Greg responds...

Does the HOW really matter? If it does, make something up. That's all I'd be doing. Cuz the how doesn't really interest me too much.

In any case, I'm not sure what the how has to do with resolving the "cliffhanger". And that's on top of the fact THAT THERE WAS NO CLIFFHANGER.

It's become one of my pet peeves, but the definition of a cliffhanger has been stretched beyond recognition to include any plot thread left unresolved or any little mystery left unexplained. But that is NOT the meaning of cliffhanger.

At the end of Season Two of The Spectacular Spider-Man, no hero was left in jeopardy so there was no cliffhanger. Period.

But again, I don't see how knowing how he survived would resolve anything about the threads we intentionally left hanging. The one thing has nothing at all to do with the other.
