    One argument for Parallel Lives here is that if Mary Jane learned Peter's identity a few minutes after he learned that Uncle Ben was killed, he would arguably be too distracted to pay attention to...

    Not quite. An editor's view that he personally feels that something didn't happen in a story isn't canon.

    It's a Schroedinger's cat situation until it's confirmed either way within the series.

    This is an interesting point. For many readers, Spider-Man is largely a prominent superhero who has been in some good stories, and some of those stories may be their definitive version of the series....

    Romita Jr has had an interesting habit of being on Amazing Spider-Man during a poorly received run, and then sticking for a much better follow-up. When O'Neil left, he kept working with Stern. When...

    I'd say yes with a caveat. The real Ben Reilly is back, but circumstances largely beyond his control have turned him into a shell of what he once was.

    Responsibility can connect to youth. He was a young man (and maybe not even a man yet) when he learned that with great power comes great responsibility.

    I don't think it would be outdated as much as it would be very stylistically different.

    The Raimi films didn't really leave much space for sequels, killing off A-list villains and setting up a narrative where Peter's likely to retire as Spider-Man to be with MJ.

    It's a solid pick to go with someone who adds diversity to the ticket, but is also familiar with the state legislature and can help a Governor who comes from a different arena navigate that...

    I don't follow Fox News, so I can't talk about them.

    I do listen to National Review podcasts, and read a few conservative websites, where they're often critical of easily disproven statements.

    I didn't say Parallel Lives changed more than OMD/ OMIT did. It's a different kind of retcon, in some ways that aren't good (since everything happened on the page exactly as it was on the page in a...

    I'd vote good. Sometimes there was a lack of issue to issue continuity that was often distracting. However, the lows weren't that bad, the majority of the material is worth rereading and there was...

    It's probably the result of ignorance and mistaken memories rather than a lack of research. A writer might not know to research that air force captains and navy captains have different ranks, and an...

    To be pedantic, there have probably been less qualified presidential nominees than Donald Trump.

    They did all lose, though.

    While there are some interesting follow-ups to this question, it's not relevant to a discussion about how well (or poorly) people wrote Spider-Man.
