He's Peter Parker: Spider-Man!
, unluckiest nice guy in MU. And he's been out in the rain for a while now...
He's done alot in his day! Besides saving countless lives and waxing hilarious he's...
Joined up with The Man and wore this:
He got depressed and rebeled against The Man wearing this (again):
But then he hit this:
And got to look like this:
Now he's in two Avengers teams, mentoring a new Spider-Girl:
Doesn't even know about the new Venom:
And now he's in the Future Foundation in this:
So has it come back to Spidey to be on every team and guest star in every book? Has the Big Time permentantly stemmed the Parker Luck? Have we seen the last of marriage-ruining Devils?
Not too sure, but with people flocking back to the Spider books in droves and this on the way:
I thought this thread was needed now more than ever!
Big time rocks
That is all
Nope! Might be in the Fear Itself Initiative mini.
I looked for it, I swear!
I am super excited for the new Venom. Slott has done great in the back-ups(by the way, I love that the back-UPS aren't just another Spider-Man story. They spotlight other characters too) but Remender has taken his writing to a whole new level lately and I can't wait to see him write Spec Ops Venom.
And thought that Peter comes off a little snarky to his classmates?
I don't think it's intentional but it is pretty funny
I always thought he kept quiet at school, but it turns out he has a bit of a mouth
Well done Slott and Caselli.
Caselli needs to do a Bendis book after he finishes on ASM, he handles big casts well and does fantastic facial expressions
which means that Mephisto can be all "hohoho yes I am spreading evil across the world"
To be honest it was a an incredibly shit retcon when it started and then retconned against in anotehr incredible shit manner, and Quesada is a terrible writer, but that doesn't stop current spidey comics from being good.
Ah, our little Solar is growing up and starting to make sense. Good boy!
Also I have never read a Fantastic Four but I'm definitely picking up FF#1.
Weird cross between depression and trippy as shit
You really can tell that Spidey is a regular New York kid, mostly from the dialogue, the way Parker speaks and the word order etc could easily be placed in Stan Lee's voice and accent, and I think that's a cool touch. Parker also has a strangely, I don't know what to call it, breezy way of speaking? Even when he's not wisecracking as spidey, he'll be calling Betty Grant "Blue Eyes," and when he talks to Jameson it's all "Relax JJJ, I got the pics you wanted!" Exclamation marks all over the place of course.
Another point, which I think is very relevant to Slott's current run, is just how much emphasis there is on Peter Parker being a scientific genius. The first time he fights the vulture, he beats him with a gadget. First time he fights the Lizard, he makes an antidote to the Lizard formula. Killer robot on the scene? Uses his tech skills to deprogram it. I think Slott might be deliberately looking at those early issues and seeing how Spidey invents new stuff often, and bringing it into his very good run.
I've always liked the writers that remembers parkers a pretty smart guy. I like the current setup with parkers job, and hope they expand on that. I wouldnt mind if they actually played this up and made him another go-to reference such as Reed Richards/Tony Stark. It also kinda annoys me how sometimes he teams up with those people and he says something smart and they reflect AGAIN on 'wow hes not just a silly guy' but they never rememeber it.
Slott on some Spider-Island teasing and some in-depth explanation of why no more spider sense
Really, I think temporarily getting rid of his strength would have been more effective. It also raises the danger level, but opens other possibilities as well. If he can't punch dudes really hard anymore, then he'll have to rely on tech and strategies a little more, which plays into his new role as a scientist.
He'll get it back, I'm sure
have the recent arcs been any good? was big time worth buying? from all accounts it sounds like the gauntlet was kind of a waste of time.
Big Time, however, is the best Spider-Man has been in 20 years. Excluding USM.
Just make sure to skip One moment in Time.
It's making me think of one comic I bought some years ago, where Peter has a black eye with the text 'Return of the Hobgoblin' or something.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?
but i liked some of the spidey comics in the first half of the last decade :P
That's one Humberto Ramos. Frenetic spidey artist extraordinaire. Not too sure about the issue though sorry.
Aaaand I just ordered Big Time.
Damnit, I was trying to stick with Ultimate only for Spidey. :P
blech. i think i'm gonna bite the bullet and order big time. it's gonna be a challenge though trying to swallow all this carlie cooper rubbish. goddamn joey Q
