    I googled the term "tar baby" because I was curious about the term. I grew up in New York in the 1990s, and didn't really come across any Br'er Rabbit stories.

    Interesting question. I'm not sure how much influence should matter, since it's possible to have a character who is better than any other but only appears in one story in one form.

    Not really.

    Peter's kids are young, so they're not going to be able to do much for the first few years.
    Their interactions won't fit the context of a superhero action series.

    Is there a non-dark and depressing way to get rid of Spider-Ma'n kids?

    Incidentally, I didn't have the cake example. That was riffing on something Vegeta said.

    The issue is that it's not clear...

    Peter Parker Spider-Man #35

    There are more story ideas just because a married father represents a status quo that can't change without a story becoming really really dark.

    It's something Marvel would be stuck with five years...

    I think Slott had an Amazing Spider-Man 2 problem, where he made decision that restricted the work.

    He wanted to deal with Peter Parker's new status quo and Black Cat.

    I do think Learning to Crawl is better. And if the last issue sucks, I could pretend it ended with the fourth issue and it'll still be a B+ story at least.

    I voted B. I enjoyed it, and I'll likely reread it several times, but it's not among Slott's best work on the character.

    To add to that, there are some works which didn't have a large readership at the time, but develop one later as the reputation grows.

    I guess this is the equivalent of asking if there's room for Iron Man 3 or Captain America 2 after the Avengers film. A Spider-Men 2 is a different entity from Spider-Verse.

    I think Dan Slott's a great Spider-Man writer, but he's not the guy you pick for a twenty page conversation.

    Bendis could excel at that.

    Whether something by itself justifies keeping the current status quo over the status quo of ten years ago is a different argument than whether it can be one of many justifications.
