    I think this is an interesting conversation, so I’ll throw my two cents in, for what it’s worth.

    I tend to agree that movies don’t have to strictly adhere to the source material, so in that...

    I don’t think any of these sources for a lot of these new developments are more than hearsay at this point. As I mentioned in my post, some or most of these pieces of “news” are probably rumors. But...
  3. Poll: Superior encapsulates what I love about comics....

    Superior encapsulates what I love about comics. Fifty years of stories, and you can still have something new that surprises you. And Dan Slott deserves a lot of credit for that.

    I loved Superior...

    Great comparison between the Clone Saga and Brand New Day. I can’t believe I didn’t see it before. Both had multiple sets of writers. Both introduced multiple new characters, some that worked, and...

    This is interesting news. I liked TASM2, and I think it’s way too early to write the franchise off, but at this point I’m a little concerned.

    Think about all the changes that have happened since...

    I’m surprised that Spider-Hunt isn’t listed when Identity Crisis is, which came out right after Spider-Hunt. I think Revenge of the Green Goblin was a crossover between Amazing and Peter Parker:...

    If you’re a fan of Kaine, I think you’d really enjoy his earlier appearances in the series during the clone saga—especially anything written by JMD. If you prefer Kaine as a hero, it’ll be even more...

    On the other hand, the never-ending (or at least frequently changing) stream of creators on a title does mean that there isn’t a single definitive author’s vision for the character and what happens...

    At the risk of perpetuating a potential thread drift…

    I think the conversation you’re both having about Kaine is a fascinating one. I enjoyed Yost’s take on the character (more so in the...

    One of my favorite moments from the new series was in ASM2, when Spider-Man defended a kid from bullies, helped him fix his science project, and befriended him. It was a small moment, but to me that...

    So well said! I agree with all of this.

    Spectacular Spider-Man #250 remains one of my favorite issues to this day. And #256 is one of the funniest issues ever (throw in the White Rabbit, add in...
  12. I’ve been trying to settle on a year, but I just...

    I’ve been trying to settle on a year, but I just can’t do it. These “best” and “worst” of threads have really made me realize…we’ve had some really great Spider-Man stories over the years. For a...

    I remember 1998 very fondly. While it’s true that the ‘Gathering of Five’ wasn’t a satisfactory conclusion to what they’d been building up to following the return of Norman Osborn (or a proper...

    One of the strengths of the Spider-Man comics is the appeal of the Peter Parker half of his identity, which is often just as engaging as his superheroic exploits. I love reading about his supporting...

    Spider-Man 2

    SM: “You once spoke to me about intelligence. That it was a gift to be used for the good of mankind.”

    Ock: “A privilege.”

    SM: “These things have turned you into something...

    Neat idea for a thread. Personally, I think the magic seems to happen somewhere between 1-5 years. It also depends on the type of story the writer plans to tell (the slow burn you described vs. a...

    Spider-Man is one of the best characters in comics, so I think you’re in for a blast!

    If you do ever find yourself interested in some of the earlier stories, they’re definitely worth checking...
  18. I think this is a fantastic idea for a story,...

    I think this is a fantastic idea for a story, especially the part about Peter losing his powers, because it shows that his powers aren’t what make him a hero—and that you don’t need to be a superhero...

    I freely cede your point about the relative strengths of Sony and Fox. The X-men scenario was a hypothetical. I was just trying to convey that it seemed like Marvel, having already made an Avengers...

    I’m with most of the people who say I’ll believe it when I see it.

    That said, I’d love to see Spidey eventually show up in the MCU, so I would be happy to be proven wrong.

    In regard to this...

    Great idea for a thread!

    As a fan of the character, I’d wish Peter a happy ending after all he’s endured and how hard he’s fought to do the right thing.

    There could also be a poetic justice...
  22. Great news! Personally, I'd love to see a...

    Great news!

    Personally, I'd love to see a corporate espionage type movie with Ghost as the villain. Invisibility/intangibility would be a cool powerset and a different story/challenge to the...

    I think you bring up an interesting point with the “benching” of some of Spider-Man’s greatest foes—are Spidey’s villains too successful? He’s got one of the best rogues galleries in comics. The...

    I guess I'll have to wait for my 110th birthday to find out. If I'm still into comics by then. (Or breathing.)

    You're right! I completely forgot about Marvel Knights! And I thought that mega arc was a great story too- not just the Norman parts- but all the other characters as well (Black Cat, for example)....
