    Also the comic certainly takes the stance that Global Warming exists. Beyond that, which shouldn't be political at all, it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    More Hobgoblin is always a good thing. I hated him at first because I was big fan of the Phil Urich Green Goblin series, but I've come around to him.

    And seeing the Iron Spider suit in that pic reminds me... has anything been done with the last MVP Scarlet Spider clone since Initiative? I really liked those guys, and that costume.

    Also, Spider-Man needs to become Captain Universe again and then go off and have adventures in space with Carol after she becomes Captain Marvel. That could be so much fun.

    I think the last surviving Scarlet Spider, Patrick, was hanging with Justice's team. But since Justice popped up in Avengers Academy, no clue.

    What costume is that in the background? And man, I continue to love the Scarlet Spider costume.

    Also we need the Slingers costume!

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    pretty sure that's the negative zone spider-man costume

    and yes, we need Slingers

    (and Spidercide)

    When Janet comes back she needs to be upset that Peter has more costumes than her now. It will be a costume-off, David Bowie judges.

    Also there's the bullet-proof one he used a short time ago, and the old Spider Armor outfit. And Bag-Man.

    I don't recognize the one in the back either (never seen that Negative Zone story). I thought it was Venom at first - they have the same eyepieces now.

    Same here. He showed up in Venom a couple of issues ago, I'm hoping they wind up fighting again since Kingpin is starting to take an interest in him.

    I am really digging Scarlet Spider. #5 has Kaine use all his Other powers, doesn't like being called the Scarlet Spider or the phrase "for Pete's sake", and it seems like one of the bad guys he fights this issue was modeled heavily on Dan Didio.

  • RandomAtomRandomAtom Registered User regular
    I'm loving Slott's take on Spidey, ordinarily I'd be pretty livid with the amount of costumes he's gotten, but given his direction with the character it works really well. Also I agree, we need more Hobgoblin!

    It was also really funny for an issue that was all about trying to keep Houston from being nuked

    Not surprising, but after Savage Six, Cullen Bunn takes over Venom as a solo writer starting with issue 23. Dude's getting lots of big gigs now, Wolverine, Venom, Co-Writes the main Captain America series in July.

    I sure hope they stop him with 2.5 books (Cap probably goes full time him in a bit), I don't want to see another Nick Spencer or Matt Fraction or even Bendis type deal. After seeing that happen in recent years there is a noticeable difference in a writer's quality the more books they get. I think this is why Hickman did so well, he was doing the SHIELD mini, Secret Warriors, and FF and then switched out SW for a creator owner book, then he got Ultimates after SHIELD was pretty much done and he seems to hover at 2 books full time, 1 book that he's far ahead on or has time to plan out. It's kind of like artists, they might say they can do a monthly book but unless they're Bagley or Larocca you want to see them deliver first with what they have, not what they think they can do.

    Also Bunn is doing that Captain America and ____ book, though maybe that'll disappear when he takes over the main title.
    Yeah, that Nick Spencer comparison is the scariest (I mean I love his Ultimate X-Men, but other than that Spencer's marvel stuff is really ehhhh).

    This will make some people mad!
    Where is Toxin's former host? Remender says he was beaten to death in a gutter. "He's gone," Brennan adds. "It was off-panel, unfortunately we didn't have time to show it," Remender said, "but Blackheart, he done killed him."

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla KOOKABUNGA LIVES Registered User regular
    As someone who really loved the Toxin mini

    I am not that mad

    the character hadn't been touched in years and Remender was right, there are way too many heroic symbiotes running around

    I'd rather have an entertaining Venom story that uses the Toxin symbiote than the potential story using the symbiote and Pat that probably would never happen

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    I don't even know who Toxin is

    Venom is the hero symbiote for me

    man I love Flash Thompson Venom so much

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla KOOKABUNGA LIVES Registered User regular
    Toxin was a spawn of Carnage(I think?) that bonded with a cop and had the mentality of a child

    so it began to take after its' host and they became a begrudging team, with Pat teaching the symbiote how to be a hero and the symbiote trying not to kill anyone.

    It was a really fun mini but no one ever touched it again.

    I mean the dude's last appearance before Venom was on the cover of the first issue of the Initiative

    that sounds like a cool character that I would probably like

    but yeah, I agree. Better to make a good story for a character that is actually doing something that with a character who will in all liklihood never be touched again

    fuck off, Remender.

  • HenslerHensler Registered User regular
    He should have had Toxin's host (I can't remember his name) finally succeed in killing himself.

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    he could've had a random symbiote used

    he could've left Toxin in limbo

    i would prefer someone be left unused for a long time and wait for the right person to use a character versus breaking them so no one can use them again

    Isn't half the point of the stuff going down in Venom that there is a limited number of symbiotes left? Inventing a random one wouldn't work too well in that case.

    huntresssig.jpg
  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    Then he could've ripped the symbiote from Payback, or kept the Toxin thing without killing Pat

    I am just VERY irritated by this.

    What happened to all the symbiotes Doom set loose, with his "Venom Bomb?" Did they all get shot into space, or something?

    I always think it's kind of harmful, when writers cavalierly kill off characters. Part of buying into a shared universe, is lending your trust to writers. You're not just investing in the creators, but their creations, too. You're trusting not just them, but the other creators and editorial staff at the company, to shepherd those characters, be it to a satisfying end, or along a continued journey

    I remember reading a creator, in responding to fan outrage over a character they'd killed, saying something like, "Look, don't worry. It's just a fictional character."

    That's true, but man, it seems so wrong-headed. If that's your attitude as a creator, that this character you didn't care for didn't matter and could be so easily disposed of, why should we care about your characters, and your stories? Why should we believe that, once you've moved on to something else, or the book's been cancelled, another writer won't just cheaply kill off the character we've spent time and money following, or undo the consequences of your run?

    Really, if you want to wonder why nobody bothers trying new characters or new series anymore, I think you can partially blame poor follow-through, on the part of creators. I bought every appearance of Doctor Voodoo, because I was excited about the stuff Remender talked about in interviews, and I wanted to follow that character's journey. Even when the series was cancelled, I was hopeful that the character would find a home someplace else in the universe, where his new role could be further explored.

    And then another Brian Bendis killed him off in an Avengers story, the repercussions of which have never really been dealt with, and likely never will, given that Bendis is moving on from the Avengers, shortly.

    When you look at all the Avengers: Initiative characters, Toxin, Sentry, Ares, the Hood, the Runaways, the Young Avengers, Doctor Voodoo, and every other new or refurbished character that Marvel either killed off or otherwise mishandled in some way, it's hard to see why anyone would take a chance on something new and different.

    But, I also think there's something to be said, for just taking the work as it is, and judging it on its own merits. Sure, I was mad when the only follow-up that DC's Son of Vulcan received, was when he was blasted into a coma, in a really shitty Judd Winick book. That sucked, but I still got six issues of a really awesome Son of Vulcan series.

    Winick was under no obligation to me as a reader, to use Son of Vulcan in a way that was respectful of him, or his fans. But, it would have been nice.

    It turned out to be a virus, and Iron Man cured it, turning everyone back to normal.

    I am also bummed about Toxin - they could have used the symbiote off of literally any other damned symbiote character and I would not have cared in the slightest. Like Carnage - I could have done without Casady ever coming back. Blackheart could've grabbed the Carnage symbiote from space with magic.

    We'll probably lose out on all the character progression Toxin has undergone too. Darn it. At least everything else about Venom and this storyline is great so far.

    From the article it sounds more personal to the individual spider-man/ Peter Parker character than simply a new spouse. Either something like a new superhero identity, complete new outlook / mantra, new powers(again), but it's probably none of those and something different.
