    Spider-Man is a bit unusual in that there is a clear timeframe for his early adventures.

    Amazing Spider-Man #1-28 basically occurred during his junior and senior years of high school.

    So, is this how you would sort Peter Parker's backstory? Or would these be arcs for some kind of retelling?

    There are going to be some interesting consequences to the sliding timeline, but these interpretations are really flawed, especially with attributing editorial decisions to what a character wanted.

    I don't know about bad art and bad writing, but what about OK art and OK writing?

    This is largely a matter of individual preference, but even if one found the combination of great writer and ok...

    It might just be a matter of luck, with four people in their 70s well-positioned to run for President in this cycle.

    Donald Trump was an outsider to politics, which provided a contrast to Hillary...

    You suggested it was a Freudian slip to refer to him as middle-class when working class is widely seen as a subset of middle-class.

    There is a complex question of how a working class (parents...

    Wyoming's low population density can also help.

    If you close the parks, and people have less places to go for a walk, those remaining places will become more crowded.

    You didn't address the part of my post that demonstrated that the working class was seen as part of the middle class since at least 1969, so it wasn't a Freudian slip to refer to Peter Parker as a...

    New Jersey does have the highest population density of any state, so having parks open is beneficial because it offers citizens an alternative, and risky because there is the likelihood of too many...

    The New York Times article mentioned it as an aside in a larger article.



    We'll learn more about the specifics soon, but if Trump has a small stake in one of several companies that makes a...

    There was a lot more media attention about Bendis heading to DC than there was about John Romita Jr.

    The market has changed, so buying habits are quite different. When the artists behind Spider-Man and the X-Men went to Image, the main way to buy comics was the monthly titles. Now, Marvel keeps a...

    I've generally seen Peter Parker as lower-middle class, rather than lower class.

    The modern cutoff for lower class is if the family earns more than $30,000 an year.

    Moderators can't be on the board all the time, and it isn't always clear that a thread drift merits a new thread.

    A well-informed person's position on a court decision isn't always obvious.

    I do think part of why it pops up so much is that it's an accessible Miles Morales story.

    His origin is a little bit weird because it kept having cliffhangers.

    This is a fair point. It is both...

    Good point.

    I don't think Spider-Man or Archie is about staying young. That's more of a behind the scenes decision, and probably the right one.

    Interesting point on how Amazing Fantasy #15...
