    Except he was written about the same level of his current character in GDS than he was in Spencers' stuff. Only difference is Spencer's written more and had the stories actually focused on Jonah, so they're obviously gonna be more substantial overall.

    Honestly, you could make the argument that after the big blunder in GDS, and seeing Peter go to the lengths of even taking a bullet for his worst enemy, that his attitude and blunders in the current arcs are instead more of backtracking (I don't think so but I can easily see some thinking this)

    Yeah, I think we will see Jonah and Spiderman come to bigger blows later on, but that will probably be over one of Norah's more extreme stories

    I have a feeling that Dan Slott might return the write ASM once again when Marvel does their shack up once again to make things fresh....

    Nope. The general rule has always been that once a writer finishes a run on ASM, that's it. He's done. There might be the occasional fill-in, some tie-in mini-comic at the back, but no second runs.

    It's also the general rule for writers on Marvel titles. In the entire publication history of ASM, only Tom DeFalco did two runs, and his second run was more a result of the clone saga and its aftermath and a need to salvage than a vote for him.

    Marvel might get another writer to step in, say Donny Cates who has voiced it as a life-goal and who is very young or, I dunno, Gerry Duggan who's earning a lot of love and respect for his Marauders.

    Was a nice issue. I’m sort of really dying to get to this Sin-Eater story now, though. This second year feels like it’s dragging a little more as opposed to the first year (the lead up to Hunted and the event itself)

    Al Ewing could be good, too. I still think the speech he had Spider-Man give about what it means to be an Avenger to the Inverted Avengers of AXIS in Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #3 was the pinnacle of how to write Spider-Man in relation to the rest of the Marvel Universe, as essentially the heart and conscience of the superhero community, the hero who's closest to the ordinary people in the setting and is in a unique position as still something of an outsider to speak truth to power, as it were. Like Green Arrow in Justice League Unlimited (and the comics).

    Maybe. I kind of don't see him fitting the voice for Spider-Man. And he's interested in the breadth and length and obscure parts of Marvel lore, like bringing in Timely and Atlas era stuff into continuity.

    But he's more versatile than many thought, what with Immortal Hulk.

    There are a lot of writers who are waiting in the wings for a shot to write ASM - Cates, Duggan, Ewing, Leah Williams, Saladin Ahmed, Tom Taylor, Benjamin Percy, Tini Howard, or...Ta-Nehisi Coates (which I doubt he'd write ASM since he's so busy with non-comic stuff and ASM as an ongoing is a full time gig as they come).

    There's no need to bring Slott back.

    I've liked what I've seen and read of almost all those writers, so any of them would be a good choice to follow Nick Spencer when he decides his time on ASM is up.

    I can’t see Spencer wanting to go anywhere yet. I hope he’s on for a few more years, at least.
    If the stars aligned that when he finished his run and Cates was a little more free with his time, I’d be down.

    That will never happen though. If the city grows to love him and heís too successful as hero, then Fans will complain that distracts from the core of Spidey as a character. Look at how Peter as a CEO divided fans. Still, Jonahís points were valid, and show how Peter is still an emotional loner all this years later. He hasnít socially matured. However, Jonah hasnít completely either. He also needs validation as much as peter does.

    It would never happen in this era, but just imagine if they went the post-Clone Saga route and we got four Spidey titles, each with a different writer from the above list establishing their own tone and voice for their book.

    -Pav, who'd want Cates on either Spec or Web of...

    EDIT:

    Amazing - Duggan
    Spectacular - either Percy or Ewing
    PP:SM. - Ahmed
    Web - Cates

    yeah u are right I remember how many hated the idea of Peter being rich even though he wasn't. But how can Peter mature socially if ultimately he isnt allowed to be well liked?
