Marvel Comics Presents #138 (Spider-Man)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #138 (Spider-Man story only)
The conflict turns into a proxy debate about assisted suicide.
Deathurge has no business with Spider-Man, so he decides to leave and come back when Spidey is gone. The story ends with Spider-Man trying to wait it out.
It's been established that Deathurge is an agent of Oblivion (although that's distinct from Death), and his name is Deathurge, but i find it hard to accept him in this role (Peter David's Mercy, on the other hand, was created for this role). I'm also not sure that this is a great way to use Spider-Man for a rare Marvel Comics Presents story starring him. I always find the positions that heroes take in these moral dilemmas to be a bit arbitrary. But now that i think about it, i guess a guy willing to sacrifice his marriage and all of Marvel continuity to give his 180 year old aunt another few months to live would indeed fight a guy trying to bring a peaceful rest to people dying painfully of cancer.
