    Default Most Useless spider character

    We all now that Peter Parker will forever be the one and only Amazing Spider-Man, but there are a ton of other spider characters that have his same abilities. I want to know what Spider-Men or women could disappear tomorrow and people wouldn’t miss.

    In my opinion, Anya, Julia, and Ben are forgettable and unimportant in today’s age.

    Unfortunately, anyone not called Peter, Miles, and Gwen is unimportant right now.

    Her future depends on that of Agents of Atlas at this point.

    Unhappy

    At this point, I'd say either Silk or Ren Reilly (regrettably). Silk never caught on as a character. Ben's place, as the other "good" Spider-Man, of present 616 has pretty much been usurped by Miles.

    Silk.

    She's honestly an interesting idea in an awkward spot. A lot of her uselessness though stems from the fact that her relevance was to an event that banked on nostalgia and she was too recent to share in it. She had to basically step up during what is effectively her debut. There's also the issue that the "bride" hadn't been expounded upon or if it has it had about as much impact as a silent fart in an empty room. So her relevancy to the main book is practically arbitrary. Then during her debut she was overshadowed by Spider-Gwen which competed and ultimately beat her out of relevancy further. Spider-Gwen was the big takeaway and got to be a main player on film whereas we might have had Cindy cameo in Homecoming.

    Cindy Moon also suffered under her creator not having the greatest ability to write her but she also suffered for being tacked on to the origin story and it's ultimately derivative of spider-man's. What happened after is surely not, but it shouldn't take anymore than a sentence to explain where she came from which makes the whole thing more than a little convoluted. Said story also relied on material the fanbase by in large rejected despite its utility later.

    Kaine also had that "Anti-Hero" Spider niche carved out for a while before SpiderOck kind of hijacked it.

    I think this is the unfortunate truth. Kind of comes down to how interested the current writing team/editorial is in the character being used to see them get any real shine. Like I know Stephen Wacker was apparently a big advocate for Anya which you could see in her transition into becoming Spider-Girl (and her current use in the cartoon.)

    “Useful” is someone that adds depth, importance, and value to the spiderman mythos. Someone that would be largely missed if they were gone. For example, flash was a useful character but someone like Debrah Whitman is someone that is largely useless

    There are many many characters that fit that description and I don’t think that we’d agree about all of them.

    I guess all those various versions of Spider-Man who only existed to be killed during Spider-Verse.

    Any character other then Peter on the Marvel's Spider-Man cartoon, unless they are writing down Spidey to where he needs their help.
