    I like several members of the "Spider-Family" even if I don't think the concept of one really works all that well.

    Especially compared to DC's families.

    I agree on Classic Ben Reilly. How unfortunate those in charge of Marvel have seen fit to ruin, imo, a once great character.

    Yost Scarlet Spider run is pretty good, even when i think that tye quality dropped a little in the final issues. I love Ben for how similar he was to Peter and at the same time so different, of course Peter would be number 1 for me, no matter what (even if the last 10 years his characther has been less than stelar). Miles is an interesting concept that has been poorly executed since day one IMHO.

    I don't dislike the others exactly, but i don't think that their inclusion on the mythos has been particurlary well handled, some of the had improved like Silk, but some others hadn't sadly like Miles or Spider-Gwen.

    Agreed about both.

    Peter's a case for me where I like the character quite a bit, but I like a version of him outside the comics a lot more. I don't think I'll ever be over Spectacular Spider-Man.

    I've read barely any of Miles' solo stuff. Mostly just know him from the current Champions book.

    I think generally the other Spiders are fine characters in their own right but more often then not it doesn't feel like they add that much to the core mythos or to Peter in general whenever they interact (and sometimes it feels like they actually detract from him).

    And sometimes they can feel so shoe-horned into other media with Peter in it (I'm looking at you, Marvel's Spider-Man cartoon).

    You and me both...

    Miles in Champions is okay, but you're not really going to get a good reading on a Spider-Character in a Mark Waid book.
