    Not to derail the thread, but I hope that story gets told one day: hopefully sooner rather than later!

    And yes, Anya's costume is one of the best spider-costumes.
    The original Arana costume, or her Spider-Girl costume? Because she got the latter from Julia Carpenter (who first wore it as Arachne in Omega Flight) at the conclusion of Grim Hunt, after Julia had become the new Madame Web in the same storyline.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    Weird that they wouldn't make this part of the hook for new readers. What's with the bait and switch?

    I think her Spider-Girl costume is clean. The suit looked good with Julia, but the redesign with Anya was perfectly suited to her in my opinion.

    They probably thought it would sell on the name alone, and thus weren't fully comfortable saying if it was 616 or not. But I agree, this could've been part of the hook!

So now, we actually have a story about a son.of Peter and developing him. I'm curious about that. What do you guys think?

    spoilers:
    I think in the past they went with the idea of a daughter because it's an immediate distinction from Spider-Man, a way to explore similar themes from a different point of view. With a son there's more of a risk the character could end up too similar to Peter, or at least be perceived that way.

    That's fair about the character distinction! It makes sense in the end. Let's hope this Ben can be distinct enough from his parents to be his own person!

    A timely publication that closed when Marvel arrived. Spider-Girl is the longest publication started during the Marvel era with a female protagonist

    Well if that impresses you...why not. It’s good that Millie lasted that long but in any case.

    To be fair, they’ve actually lessened this lately. Marvel introduced a bunch of new Asian heroes with Aero, Wave, Crescent, White Fox and Luna Snow and not one is a legacy character. It would’ve been so easy to have any of them ride the coattails of another, but they didn’t.

    Well, Aero has the codename of one depowered X-Men student (Melody Guthrie) and the pretty much the same powers as another (Wind Dancer), but yeah, she's not actually related to them in any way, I doubt the NetEase guys knew about the X girls.

    I think what should've been said there is that Mayday's book is Marvel's longest running female superhero title. That would disqualify Millie the Model as she's a slice of life character.
