    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),...
  2. The problem is that Steve Ditko himself, and all...

    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...
  3. Linkara is an ex-Republican and was a moderate...

    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.

    So even outside the superhero element,...

    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.

    No more than Nick Fury, Wolverine, Ben Grimm, Jameson, and other prominent smokers in Marvel before Marvel decided to make them all quit tobacco.

    And yeah, after that, MJ appeared in-comics in...

    Well that's life.

    “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, not the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor...

    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...

    I re-read JMS' run in Omnibus recently. Quite aside from the characterization of the three leads (Peter, MJ, Aunt May) who JMS made into fully realized characters more than any other writer, in my...

    No.

    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...

    Don't know if Tobey'd make sense as Uncle Ben next to Marisa Tomei's Aunt May, he's 11 years younger than her.

    And again, MJ's previous characterization was acknowledged by Conway, and by numerous other characters (namely Peter himself in that scene) throughout that run. It wasn't some sudden change. It was...

    In other interviews he said it was also because Aunt May was too predictable. She had been close to dying numerous times, and that well had run dry already even 100 issues in.



    They were on...

    Because he thought that would have a major emotional impact. If you kill Aunt May after she's been written as a nuisance in previous stories, after Lee drove her out of the books, when she barely...

    It's a false dichotomy created by Marvel Cinematic Universe fanboys, and also Ultimate Marvel fanboys, who totally don't understand the actual intent and approach of these comics.

    No it isn't. Being on a treadmill isn't cyclical.

    DC is actually cyclical. Where each new universe and reboot forms a complete circle. So the Silver Age began with "Flash of Two Worlds" and ended...

    I am curious about what story Raimi would end up doing. The best Doctor Strange story, by far, is The Eternity Saga. And I am not sure if that plays to Raimi's strengths (Alex Garland, especially...

    One problem with the cartoon, on account of the bizarre decision to give their Peter green eyes (which he never had before) is that when MJ appears with her green eyes, the effect is that she and...

    The Brain Trust or Webheads weren't invested in creating a "new love interest". On the part of the writers certainly not. Most of them signed on to write Spider-Man without being told about OMD (Marc...

    "Stan Lee's era" is a broad and sweeping category. What people understand by that is the Marvel 616 superhero era which began with the launch of the Fantastic Four.

    Conway said that when he came to write ASM he initially just followed Stan Lee's template (which is true, see his first 10 issues or so on the title, which aren't very good) and that the plan to kill...
