    Default Should Dan Slott return the ASM once again?

    Slott seems interested in returning to the Spider-Man franchise. He has plenty of stories to tell. I have this reoccurring dream that Slott will become the next Spider-Editor over seeing the Spider-Titles? Would anyone want to see Slott return as Editor?

    No. He definitely shouldn't.
    Slott was writing Spider-Man for ten years. Other people deserve their chance to do it.

    No. I'd rather they kill permanently every version of Spider-Man than have Slott mess with Spidey and his supporting cast/loved ones again. He had his five minutes.

    Good lord no! He was on there for ten years and nearly destroyed the character, and his ego was out of control. By the end he was clearly on some sort of power trip and stayed out of a sense that he 'got' the character more than anyone else. I completely disagreed with his his take on Peter, his personality, the tone, and the metaphysical Spider-verse stuff.

    It is not happening. Why? “Spider-Man is a young man’s comic.” ( Dan Slott). Besides almost nobody wants him back on the book ( including the Marvel Office, which is why a lot of his stuff like Superior got erased)). One thing I have learned about Slott is he likes to say and ( or) do things he knows will rile up the readership like the negative Mary Jane comments. This is what he is doing. I say ignore it.

    LMAO!! Is there proof the office doesn’t want him back? If they had a problem with his stories, they wouldn’t have green lit any of them. I need proof suggesting they have a problem with what he wrote. And note that “erasing” stories is pretty much a company wide thing to maintain a boring status quo.

    While I agree that Slott's time as head writer on Spider-man is done (though not in sentiment or with the ridiculous vitriol of others here) I do think having him back as editor is actually pretty good idea. I always liked his enthusiasm for moving Peter, his life and world forward and having him face new and interesting threats and challenges.

    While I may not agree with some of his directions (mostly at the end) I was consistently interested in where things were going.

    I think he could be an editor like Denny O'Neil was to Batman in the '90s, a fan and keeper of tradition who understood the character and his world but also understood that times change and new voices need to be heard... and sometimes said 'no' to. I think he'd do a great job shepherding the books.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC Universe…

    Slott had around 8 years all his own to steer this ship, better to let other people have a shot at the character.

    It's kind of a curious choice for the article, though, since I expected the link to deal with Slott's alleged desire to return to the character as opposed to his usual Twitter antics antagonizing his own readerbase.

    Personal feelings about his run aside, the guy was wrote almost over 150 ASM issues, he told the story he wanted to tell already.

    If he were to ever return, it'd better to be years from now, when other writers have had their chance, him returning after a really long run like his' would be too soon if he came back after Beyond is done with.

    Wouldn't be opposed to random one shots or whatever though.

    I think one-shots and/or mini-series would be better suited to his strenghts (and work ethic :P)

    Or stories that take place in the past.

    What I noticed Slott can be pretty good at, at least with Spidey, is telling stories like that, Learning to Crawl and Spider-Man/Human Torch are examples of this, there are obvious retcons here and there, but they generally don't feel too invasive (Though we do get cases like Clash...).
