    I've heard this too, but I don't think this has anything to do with the comics.

    It's the Raimi films. She kisses Spider-man while she's dating Harry. Tries to kiss Peter while she's engaged to...
  2. I don't think the argument here is that these...

    I don't think the argument here is that these qualities are bad (the video itself weighs the pros and cons of the archetype) ... rather that they can often be used as a crutch by writers as opposed...
  3. Agreed. The "strong female character" was...

    Agreed. The "strong female character" was designed to be a correction of the damsel in distress stereotype. It's not inherently bad. The problem is when writers equate strong with complex. A strong...

    Yeah I assumed that Molina's Ock from Spider-man 2 was going to be the star of the show. I think bringing back Norman after his death in SM1 would be the biggest plothole here (assuming he's really...

    That's true. But that was more of a story editing reason than a marketing synergy reason...they didnt want Miles' story to veer too closely to MCU Peter's. And it probably would have been easier to...

    Both Spider-Verse and the PS4 game started production before Homecoming for that film to have any sort of impact on MJ's design (thankfully...not that it necessarily would have.) And they really...

    I think they didn't want two different MJ figs (a white redheaded version and a biracial version) being distributed at the same time. Probably the same reason we don't get Ned Leeds included in the...

    Yeah this is what I've heard. They didnt include Mary Jane because there was a recent Zendaya MJ minifigure released. A comic Mary Jane figure was made a few years before the MCU version though.

    That's fair. It really depends how you define "bad", but even Spider-man's "bad" is pretty tame compared to other comics.



    Mary Jane and the amount of development that she was given in the 70s...

    Basically. In general though I would say the comics have been more progressive than other media.

    Though I'm not sure if OPs post is specifically about sexism or just bad things happening to female...

    Maguire's Spider-man was given more quips in the tie-in video games and I actually kind of liked his delivery in those. He just sounded like a regular smartass New Yorker. The movies though used them...

    The armor made sense, but I wasn't a fan of the monochromatic look or the helmet. I don't mind the static mask, but I would've had Norman grab a gobliny non-armor mask from the mask collection in his...
  14. Poll: I'm sure you were able to comprehend what I...

    I'm sure you were able to comprehend what I meant. But in case I didn't clarify enough: between her death and her recent revival in other media, there wasn't much of a fan following for the character...

    “Gwen was a punching bag for longer than 10 years and her fans endured it better” “MJ fans slander Gwen with far worse language.”

    First of all, there was no Gwen fandom prior to the last 10 years...

    Oh lord, please stop with these absolutes. If you're talking about Gwen being a punching bag by being thrown off a bridge...yeah people sent Conway death threats when he did that.

    Anyway, these...

    I'm not sure how this entire discussion of MJ's looks spun out, but my initial response to that Zendaya video was about MJ's personality and characterization, not her looks. I wasn't arguing that...

    I don't think Peter...even in the 90s...was ever really intended to be plain looking or unattractive. He's been an attractive guy since at least the Romita era, and not just based on the artwork, but...

    Well...that doesn't describe Mary Jane or Peter Parker in any media I've ever seen.

    A broken clock is right twice a day.

    This video also isn't entirely accurate in terms of how Mary Jane was presented initially. MJ wasn't designed to be odd or culturally subversive. She wasn't a...

    In the Raimi films, Peter didn't tell MJ and rejected her in the first movie because of his alter ego. She found out in the climax of the second film. They had also known each other since childhood...

    Some people try to argue that he was more of an asshole like Ditko era Peter. But Ditko era Peter was a loner who basically devoted his life to Spider-man and making a living to care for his aunt. He...

    I like Garfield as an actor, but disliked his Peter Parker. Holland is meh for me. Maguire was decent. None were spot on.

    I can see them using this as an opportunity to fully revive the Sam Raimi franchise. Nostalgia for those movies is high right now.

    I just hope, if they do so, they have a good story for next one....

    ^ I never said that Kirsten didn't win awards or accolades. That's really tangential to the point that I was trying to make.
