    It makes for a good shorthand that exemplifies those movies didn't really get Spider-Man. If they did, they certainly wouldn't have tried to build the foundation of their franchise around Richard...

    Am I misremembering, or did he pass it to Abnett to do as he pleases?

    It was really funny that Marvel launched a couple of books just before they blew up the multiverse. :p

    (Ant-Man's first collection didn't even collect his "Last Days" issue. They really wanted...

    Nah, Richard Parker is pretty meaningless. But Peter having his own super company? That's the ticket! :p
  5. It often feels like Peter himself doesn't care...

    It often feels like Peter himself doesn't care about the stakes. Why are we supposed to care about his relationship with Carlie if Peter completely forgets she exists? Why are we supposed to care...

    I'm pretty sure this is Miles Warren's brother, Raymond. Should someone be fired if their brother is a supervillain?

    You keep saying this. It doesn't change my assessment.



    Evidence of what? I honestly don't know what you are trying to say right here.



    If you want to get into it. Why was Harry so sick...
  8. I feel like you aren't getting what I am saying....

    I feel like you aren't getting what I am saying. Peter's sense of guilt is downplayed because the movies let the bad things that happen come as a result of the choices of the other characters. This...
  9. Yes. And the way the movies present it, they are...

    Yes. And the way the movies present it, they are trying to have it both ways. That it is Peter's fault that they died, but also absolving him of the guilt. It comes across very badly.




    They...

    Those movies sure went out of their way to absolve Peter of that guilt for no reason, then. They can say he feels guilty all they want, but they clearly absolved him of all responsibility in their...
  11. I do know those movies went out of their way to...

    I do know those movies went out of their way to absolve Peter of the guilt of the people around him dying. Uncle Ben chose to fight the crook. Captain Stacy chose to confront The Lizard. Gwen chose...
  12. You do realize that Spider-Man is not Batman, I...

    You do realize that Spider-Man is not Batman, I hope.



    Peter's relationship with Curt Conners in that first movie is built on the foundation of Peter searching for info about Richard.

    What...
  13. I don't know why they did the origin stuff again....

    I don't know why they did the origin stuff again. And why they did it so terribly. There was zero resolution to Peter and Uncle Ben's killer. The most it got was a resolution in a non-canon tie-in...

    The parents subplot was a huge part of those movies. And they cut into the relationships Peter should have had with other people. Flash Thompson all but disappeared in ASM 2. They cut MJ. The Bugle...

    Garfield's Spider-Man films were dragged down by that terrible parents story that wasn't the least bit interesting and felt incredibly un-Spidey like.

    OTOH, sometimes a high quality book with an excellent creative team doesn't sell, either. I cited Slott and Allred's Silver Surfer book. I consider it a very high quality comic book. It tends to find...

    RIP Wes Craven. Horror films wouldn't be the same without you.

    He's narrating to himself. MJ called him out on it in one of the endings to Web of Shadows. :p

    I know. It's part of Rachel being a mutant super heroine from an alternate future timeline.
  20. Poll: It's hard to see them prioritizing Black Cat over...

    It's hard to see them prioritizing Black Cat over one of Stan's girls. Particularly under the High School setting. And that's some of Felicia's problems in a nutshell. The fact that Stan had no part...

    The second they announced High School Spidey for the MCU, everyone should have dropped all thoughts of Felicia as a love interest. The best she could get is like they did in the USM comics. And even...
  22. Poll: Let me see if I got this. MJ, who hasn't been in...

    Let me see if I got this. MJ, who hasn't been in a movie since 2007's Spider-Man 3, is too recent a character to appear in another film.

    But Catwoman, who was in 2012's Dark Knight Rises, is so...
  23. Poll: The unappealing aspect is the animal that Batman...

    The unappealing aspect is the animal that Batman uses as his theme and namesake. The bat is not a particularly appealing animal. Just as the spider is not an appealing animal.

    So because the ASM...

    No offense, but having Rachel come in and black mailing Peter doesn't strike me as particularly endearing. It's the kind of thing that would make the Spidey audience hate the character.
  25. Poll: Hawkeye is really a supporting character who is...

    Hawkeye is really a supporting character who is presented as a special SHIELD agent. There has been no MCU project where Hawkeye is the lead.

    Felicia is a cat-themed burglar who flirts with our...
