    I think his point was that Peter never thought about life insurance, not that he didn't have it. Peter never having given it a thought is a bit weird. Granted this is comics and a writer can always say Peter thought about it multiple times.

    I don't know, i just saw this linkara video and he just chews into spidey for no reason, and seems incapable of understanding that while spidey has wanted to quit many times over what it did to his personal life, he had to put the greater good over it. Sometimes that stuff is painful and it can't be escaped when you've taken up this duty in terms of Mask/life balance.

    Yeah, spidey said he can't get any life-insurance but it's more about the core point I said.
    I think if he doesn't have any investments, he's just trying his best to not die.

    Funny enough, the video isn't so much him chewing into Spider-Man as a character, but chewing into Marvel (execs and editorial) for keeping him in this kind of nebulous stage where he comes off more as an overgrown adolescent than a fully matured, thoughtful and responsible adult because they think his best days or years were when he was still in high school and so refuse to let him grow beyond that.

    I mean you could make the argument that the guy's life's just thrown outta whack so much he can't progress through milestones the normal way, so there's some arrested development

    Still I wonder what his biggest purchases or fees he's had to pay from whatever savings drained him. Like a house (which I think MJ contributed to, and they lost it) or stuff like that and how quickly they were able to pay off their debts

    That's a good point, and some good questions there as well.

    How many people are fully matured, thoughtful and responsible adults in their mid/late twenties? How many mid/late twenties working class New Yorkers have a stable career, a spouse, 2.4 kids, a mortgage, life insurance and investments in the year 2020?

    Haha, was just reading some random issues and apparantly pete had a savings plan he didn't even know about though he cashed it all out for back rent

    Might be easier if he lived with his aunt instead since they could split the rent and save more though? Idk

    Hmm, that's a good point, come to think of it.

    I understand that Peter should be responsible enough to have some kind of savings, but for most of his life, he's had difficulty working a full time job with benefits. The times where he's been successful, it seems like he loses everything just as he is getting comfortable. Besides the loved ones he has lost because of Spider-Man, he's also unable to be dependable to handle his obligations. For him "Great Responsibility" takes precedent over everything else, so unless Peter learns to balance his time as Spider-Man with his civilian life, I don't see the cycle ever changing. Dating all the way back to the beginning, he has flunked important tests, stood up dates, missed deadlines, and been unable to keep important appointments. When he finally was supposed to get his college degree, he found out the day of graduation that he didn't have the hours he needed due to his Spider-Man activities. And all that stuff was from comics in the 1970's, yet he still goes through the same thing today. As for life insurance, Peter has no dependents, so there is no need for a life insurance policy. Aunt May should have one for Peter, if anything. It's not his fault she has aged backward. She should be long dead by now.

    I feel like you had a point and then just lost it at the end. Are all young adults just waiting for their guardians to die?

    I will agree that it is a little annoying to see Peter having the kind of same problems today that he did decades ago. It seem like they wont let him get his shit together long term.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Pull List - Lois Lane, Amazing Mary Jane, Black Cat, Doctor Doom, Gwen Stacy, Jane Foster Valkyrie, Morbius Savage Avengers, Strike Force, Something Is Killing The Children

    That's a good question. Considering how Parker Industries went down . . .
