    Speaking just for myself, I feel locating the story in Peter's actions leading up to that makes more sense than the asinine "neck snap" issue which is a joke gone out of hand. So with me, it's more...

    Roy Thomas said that later that he didn't have any affinity for Spider-Man and that the title he really wanted to write was Fantastic Four. And I think that explains why his brief run on the...

    WRT to spoilers, who's to say the show won't ultimately send Billy down that path. He does have a genocidal hatred for supers in the show, right? That's true.

    The show has killed other supes...they killed Popclaw (although that was Homelander and A-Train's doing), then Billy Butcher massacred Mesmer (an ex-superhero turned snitch).

    I disagree with that, thoroughly. The spirit of the show is the spirit of the comics. Karl Urban's Billy is absolutely the character in the comics as is Erin Moriarty's Starlight, and Randy Quaid's...

    As far as comics go, The Boys was an ongoing that reached around 70 issues. So that means the comics' pacing was if anything, even slower than what you have in the show.

    I think the pacing is...

    In terms of the actual killing of Gwen Stacy, Norman is responsible. He rammed her body off the bridge with his glider, dropping her from a height, with the fall killing her.

    The Death of Captain Marvel got an OGN because A) The character existed as an ashcan to keep license on Captain Marvel, B) Mahr-Vel was a real bore, C) He was disposable.

    That's a smart take. Ultimately it's not the writer's fault, and that even includes Dan Slott, editorial has prevented them from writing the actual Spider-Man organically developed by Lee and Ditko....

    Well given the broad style the show is going for so far, eventually they are going to make Neuman a corrupt politician and/or victim, because The Boys isn't really built for showing institutions at...

    The latest episode felt a bit like a letdown but everything with Butcher was great, and wonderful to see Butcher and Terror.

    As of the most recent episode, I will say that the show is faithful to the spirit of the characters and the character arc of the comics but it's not going to take the same road as the comics to get...

    Rio Morales running for office seems like an attempt to do a take on AOC (not that the two resemble each other otherwise). Hispanic-American women from a NY borough on a progressive platform running...

    Ooh. Forgot that. Good call. That's the nearest in 616.

    I'd still give props to Spencer for doing a full team-up for the first time.

    Oh...and welcome to CBR Community.

    It's how the show is presenting it. The Deep is not on an redemption arc, he's on a "getting back my old life" arc.

    In 616 Marvel, never. In AU, I can't think of any but never to my knowledge.

    Spider-Man teamed up with Harry Goblin at the end of Spec#200 and also Spider-Man 3 but never with OG.

    Cantwell's first issue for IM is excellent. He's dialing the clock and bringing back Pre-RDJ Tony, complete with Errol Flynn pencil mustache.

    Props to Spencer:

    A Norman Goblin and Spider-Man hero-villain teamup has never been done once before in 616 Spidey history
