    I totally agree with both of these statements. Although neither take on the character was an unqualified success, they were at least trying to do something different and resulted in some fun stories.

    He has a cool design, and was good fun as an alternative to the Green Goblin for quite a long time. His early few appearances were really well written, and even the Jason Macendale version of the...

    I feel like quite a lot of the Bendis/Bagley run on ASM could fit into this thread. Looking back it was absurdly consistent, with only a few arcs that I can remember not quite landing.

    As others have mentioned, a couple of the stories on there aren't particularly underrated at all.

    Maybe Next Year definitely belongs on the list, and in truth you can take your pick from most of...

    I really didn't care for it. The title character bore no resemblance to the Ben Reilly of the original Clone Saga, which I felt rendered his return pretty pointless. I don't really understand why...

    It's funny; although I do tend to agree that the Clone Saga would have been a much better story if it had ended sooner, I don't think that this was the biggest problem with it. The biggest problem...

    My re-read of The Clone Saga has led me to the midway point of Maximum Cloneage, and it's becoming clear to me why the storyline was vilified for so many years.

    A lot of the drama of the early...

    Just read Venomverse in its entirety, and against my better judgement I quite enjoyed it. It was incredibly silly, but Cullen Benn deserves a lot of credit for making such a thin premise into

    Venom and Carnage should be two of Spider-Man's most fearsome villains, but have been badly mishandled for a long time. Both have pretty solid ideas at their core and need to go back to basics.

    I don't think that I'm implying anything of the sort. I just think that the character doesn't really have anywhere to go at this point unless she finds out Peter's secret identity. I am tired of...

    I've never been a huge fan of the character, but I think a Cardiac movie could be interesting. I'd like to see how his costume translates to the big screen too.

    If done properly, I think a Green...

    She should either find out, or be killed off. Without either of these things happening, the character is no longer interesting enough to be worth keeping around.

    I've recently been re-reading quite a lot of 90's Spider-Man (mostly ASM) on Marvel Unlimited, trying to fill in some of the gaps in my reading. Over the last few days I've got to the beginning of...

    Mark Millar's MK: Spider-Man run had some great fight scenes. From memory, the best one was Spider-Man vs Electro in #3.

    This would be on my reserve list. I don't think it really works as a complete story, in the way that it was intended to, but it is a great run of entertaining stories featuring some terrific, varied...

    Lee and Ditko's run.
    Needs no explanation. As others have said, it has dated, but is still essential reading and introduces so much of the mythos.

    Superior Spider-Man was patchy, and ended poorly, but when it was good it was very very good.

    Remender's run on Venom, and Ultimate Spider-Man would be close runners up.

    I would reluctantly say yes. There have been too many retcons and revisions in recent years, and as a result Spider-Man's history no longer makes any real sense.

    The best example of this would be...

    It was a curious little story. Kaare Andrews artwork is fantastic, but ultimately I found it too bleak and depressing for my tastes (although I suppose that was sort of the point).

    It is definitely in the conversation. My personal favourite though is 'As Dreams Are Made On', from Webspinners Tales of Spider-Man written by J.M Dematteis with art from Michael Zulli.

    What sort of costume would you like to see? I love his original, 616 design but it's pretty clear that it would not work in a live action film.

    Mysterio is a fantastic, underrated villain and could definitely carry a film on his own. A reworking of his Ultimate design would work pretty well on film as well.

    It's a good run that could have been great. He really 'got' Peter Parker's character, and benefited from some great artwork. His take on Spider-Man's world was unconventional but I think it was...
