    I like both; either provide good storytelling possibilities.

    X-23: "I know there are people who disapprove... Guys on the Internet mainly."

    Adult Peter by a mile; don't care for junior Spidey at all. For all people like to say that high school Spidey is the "true" version, unless it's Lee & Ditko, high schooler Peter somehow manages to be neither nerdy, or smart, or interesting.

    But Lee Ditko Spider-Man was neither nerdy, smart, nor interesting.

    He was just kinda a dick.

    Hmm... I think of Spider-Man: TAS... where he was in college and... well... I thought that was GREAT.

    Let Miles and Gwen be the teenage Spider-Man and Spider-Woman.

    It's time for Peter to grow up and be just as capable and adult as Jessica Drew is. Jessica is a capable investigator and agent. Sure she makes mistakes sometimes, but she makes adult mistakes and has adult stories. Why can't Peter be the same. There are teenage versions of Spider-Man and Spider-Woman. Heck even Silk/Cindy is more capable and professional than Peter is as a reporter.

    I kind of wanted a story where Peter finally embraces his scientific abilities and becomes a Professor or creates a new startup company. Back when I was hoping Doc Ock was going to stay kind of grey, I wanted to see the two of them doing science together.

    More than anything I want Peter to be married again. There is nothing wrong with being like Reed and Sue as a married couple with Peter and MJ. There are a lot of adult stories that can be told with a grown up Peter Parker.

    Above all I am sick of Joe Quesada and every writer and editor that thinks that "One More Day" is the pinnacle of Spider-Man storylines when it is actually the worst Spider-Man story ever written by a hack writer name Joe Quesada!

    You want Peter Parker to be more like a character that far less people care about, including Marvel?

    How about Miles and Gwen join the main cast? It feels like people are scared for Peter to develop a supporting cast.

    The Romita, Sr. years were pretty great, too (which a lot of TAS borrowed from).

    Yeah, I'm not sure that would do much for sales, either.
    Keep in mind that you have about as much chance of changing my mind as I do of changing yours.

    I honestly don't even like having Gwen and Miles around. They make Spidey less unique.

    MC2 Peter was actually a terrible mentor.

    Yeah, he was.

    What’s sad is that it was Peter’s mainstream personality.

    It’s far too late to worry about that in a world full of superheroes.

    At least with them in the cast, Peter has someone to take the load off.

    Making his life easier is the exact reason NOT to include them.

    Welp, I hope you get used to whiny, manchild Peter then cause I see no reason why they would get rid of him.
