One thing that bugs me is how Marvel makes a big deal out of Spider-Man being a teen hero even though he's been an adult throughout most of the history of the franchise.
Peter was only in high school for the first 28 issues. Most of the important story developments happened once he entered collage. Important characters to the franchise such as Mary Jane, Harry, and Gwen were introduced during the collage/adult era, and important stories such as "The Master Planner", "Death of George Stacy", "The Death of Gwen Stacy", and so many more happened during this time period.
This is often considered the golden era of Spider-Man especially when Ditko left and John Romita took over leading the book to mainstream popularity.
So do people agree with me that Adult Peter is more important to the franchise or do you think that the teen hero angle is more important?
