  1. Regular work being "beneath" the Avengers wasn't...

    Regular work being "beneath" the Avengers wasn't a thing prior to the MCU. The effect of the them blowing up in popularity while Spider-Man/X-Men/Fantastic Four were at competing studios, combined...
  2. Norman as a General MU villain tends to run into...

    Norman as a General MU villain tends to run into the same problem that Batman runs into when he is with the Justice League. That is to say, he can feel like a different character than the one he is...
  3. Slightly off-topic, but I do find it ironic that...

    Slightly off-topic, but I do find it ironic that Sony is so clueless about how to handle Spider-Man yet they somehow managed to produce the three best versions of the character outside of the comics...
  4. It is not "moot" if Marvel treats Miles as 'the...

    It is not "moot" if Marvel treats Miles as 'the other Spider-Man' (either implicitly or explicitly) while making a killing in Miles merchandise. That is textbook tokenism. If the goal behind Miles is...
  5. Marvel arguably still treats Peter as the...

    Marvel arguably still treats Peter as the Spider-Man and everyone else as a Spider-Man. That is why we have a hard time wrapping our heads around there being more than one Spider-Man, but not around...
  6. There was also a successful video game and a very...

    There was also a successful video game and a very marketable Peter-centric show that were called Ultimate. As for the second point, I'm still skeptic it would work. Peter isn't called The Amazing...
  7. The reason it feels like the Kindred mystery is...

    The reason it feels like the Kindred mystery is dragging on is because the readers aren't consistently being given clues to work with. Most of Spencer's run so far has been focused more on B-list...
  8. Names like 'Kid Arachnid' and 'Spider-Boy' are...

    Names like 'Kid Arachnid' and 'Spider-Boy' are simply not kosher if we are talking Spider-Man. Stan and Steve went out of their way to give Peter the title of "Man" for a reason. Miles deserves that...
  9. Miles needs a book with an adjective in the name...

    Miles needs a book with an adjective in the name the same way Peter has The Amazing Spider-Man. To call it Miles Morales: Spider-Man or vice-versa just makes him feel like The 'Other' Spider-Man.
  10. All the instances Spencer brought up of Peter...

    All the instances Spencer brought up of Peter antagonizing and threatening Jameson happened in the heat of the moment after Jameson would do something seriously messed up to Peter, such as smearing...
  11. Peter's superhero/civilian balance varies greatly...

    Peter's superhero/civilian balance varies greatly from writer to writer . Slott's Spider-Man was bad at it, JMS' Spider-Man was pretty good at it. Those are just two examples.
  12. More specifically, I find it 'meh' after the...

    More specifically, I find it 'meh' after the first 10-or-so issues. 'Back to Basics' and the Thieves Guild story arc were solid. Issues 33-36 were also very good.
  13. I am mainly referring to issue # 29 when Peter...

    I am mainly referring to issue # 29 when Peter misses his chance to say goodbye to MJ before her flight. We've seen a similar situation in JMS' run and we know they ultimately found a way to make...
  14. As of now I am 43 issues into Nick Spencer's run....

    As of now I am 43 issues into Nick Spencer's run. I give him props for returning Spider-Man to something resembling a pre-Slott status quo, but overall I find it to be 'meh'.

    1. The plot is too...
  15. Worst than that, it is blaming the victim....

    Worst than that, it is blaming the victim. Jameson was conceived as a satire of corporate media. To say that his targets are partly responsible for his smears because "they weren't nicer to him" is...
  16. I read ASM # 39 just a few days ago, and Nick...

    I read ASM # 39 just a few days ago, and Nick Spencer is absolutely wrong on this. All writers prior to One More Day (including Stan and Steve) made it clear that Jameson's hatred of Spider-Man comes...
  17. Halloween III: Season of the Witch had a good...

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch had a good concept but poor execution. It deals with the history of Halloween and has some decent social commentary about corporations. I would love to see a remake...
  18. The idea that Peter is a "loser" because he...

    The idea that Peter is a "loser" because he doesn't market his genius or science skills...that is actually based on two underlying assumptions.

    1. "If you're so smart, why aren't you rich?" (as...
  19. The execution could have been better but it's not...

    The execution could have been better but it's not terrible. It even does some stuff well that the comics usually don't, such as Spider-Man feeling like an actual revolutionary icon and working in a...
  20. If we have to pretend Peter is a real person...

    If we have to pretend Peter is a real person (which I resist - I'm of the Grant Morrison mindset that superheroes can only be real on paper), I doubt Peter would turn out a loser. The story of...

    Jessica Jones by default.

    I think their interactions are fun to watch, but I don't consider them friends by any stretch of the word. They are bound to get on each other's nerves. All the 'friendship' talk writers like to...
  23. The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and Black Cat (if...

    The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and Black Cat (if she counts) are his closest friendships. Also while he isn't exactly friends with Cap, they have a lot of respect for one another. Their dynamic is...

    If anything, you could argue that Marvel hurt the Green Goblin's appeal after Ditko left. The Green Goblin under Lee/Romita was turned into a regular guy that is only evil when he suffers from...

    I think part of the appeal with Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man is that they are also the most timeless. They embody ideas that are primal and that will likely always be relevant to us in one way or...
