    He was great.

    Still, I think this topic is too big. It's too big to be dealt with in the superhero genre.

    Superhero comics as a genre are fundamentally opposed to ordinary people rising up...

    I liked this issue. Spider-Man defeated/contained Gog using his smarts so that was great. He got to web up Fisk which is always nice.

    Let me say that I don't think any live-action Spider-Man is faithful or truer than any other.

    Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker/Spider-Man is my favorite of the live-action Spider-Man. Maguire as an...

    Hank Pym is the biggest loser of the Marvel Universe bar none.

    Peter Parker "wins at life" compared to him.

    You did have Mark Millar's MARVEL KNIGHTS: SPIDER-MAN which came out in 2004-2005. And then of course Matt Fraction's "To Have and to Hold" came out in 2007, alongside Back in Black.

    You are right, I understand what you meant.



    The fact is that a 3-year old will come to know Spider-Man through toys, through song (the "Spider-Man" 1967 theme song is a good kid's song),...

    The problem is that Steve Ditko himself, and all evidence point to this, chose to have Peter age from high school to college.

    The best story Ditko worked on, ASM#31-33, the Master-Planner Saga...

    Linkara is an ex-Republican and was a moderate small-r republican when he said that. So he bought into the idea of “welfare queens” and so on when he made that point. Forgetting how difficult it is...

    The fact is that at least 40% of Americans don't have life insurance and a significant chunk of the population, largely low-income continue to be uninsured.

    I doubt this will ever get a greenlight, and with the Pandemic being what it is, everything is on pause anyhow. A lot also depends on how successful "Morbius" is.

    I agree but not for the reasons you say.



    Well, Green Goblin was Spider-Man's arch-enemy long before this. In the Steve Ditko run he made more appearances than any other villain, was the only...

    Conway was communicating the consequences that MJ's actions had until now. And as is clear from the way that scene is drawn, with MJ being hesitant about leaving or staying, her decision to...
