    I hope it's not a fedora, a deerstalker might be pretty good...

    Maybe a top hat?!

    I don't care about Miles Morales but that Peter Parker book is one of the very few that look like I'd enjoy them.

    I don't see why people shouldn't get that book just because there is also a Miles Morales book.

    Did anyone say that? I think people were more annoyed that the Peter Parker book makes the Miles Morales book superfluous

    It dosen't make it superfluous, it maybe makes it seem less vital but that's up to the individual reader, I know which of the two I plan to read.

    And the Miles book was announced first, lending credence to the idea that Marvel plans to treat it as the flagship of the franchise.
    I mean, that's fine

    but it rings really hollow to announce Miles Morales as the Spider-Man one week and then reveal THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN starring Peter Parker as the "world's greatest superhero" the next week.

    Like, even the titles create the implication. I know ASM is obviously a long-standing legacy but between "Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" which one sounds like it stars the more important character

    Plus "Amazing Spider-Man" has been THE flagship Spider-Man book for almost the entirety of the character's run. In a lot of ways you may as well just call the Miles book "Second Best Guy" for long-term readers.

    That seems like a massive stretch

    if people like Miles, they'll buy that book

    If they like Peter, they'll buy that book

    If they like both, or neither, they'll spend accordingly

    Miles has held a solo run by himself for a long while, I am sure he can do it again no problem
    No one is saying Miles can't hold a book or that he is doomed to fail

    just that Marvel is having their cake and eating it too by pushing Miles as "the" Spider-Man one week and then also having Peter Parker running around the globe as Spider-Man, bodyguard to billionaire genius Peter Parker and the "world's greatest superhero"

    It is really annoying to people who were looking forward to Miles being the Spider-Man in the MU with Peter as his mentor, as the original Spider-Man announcement sold it, only to have Peter running around as a bigger and more successful Spider-Man then ever before

    I guess, like, don't read the Parker book then? Just read the Miles one? Enjoy that and let people who like the Peter book read that? There's no exclusivity here. There's no "only one true Spider-man at a time" deal. If people are aggravated, sure, but it kind of feels like hey, you've got a book that you really wanted, here's a book for other people who wanted that, just let them read that and be happy?

    This is completely missing the point of what everyone is complaining about

    No it isn't

    People are upset that there is a Peter Parker book about him being this fantastic superhero while Miles gets a book about him being a fantastic superhero, because they feel that the Peter Parker book overshadows the role of Miles and makes him look second rate.

    I get exactly what people's point is, here

    I just don't agree with it
    Except they aren't about the same thing

    Miles is the street level, learning the ropes stopping bank robberies Spider-Man book

    Peter Parker is a billionaire genius who has turned Spider-Man, his Spider-Man, into the most popular hero in the world and is a bigger hero than ever before

    Can you not see the kind of annoying thing here for those hoping that this would bring Miles to more prominence than ever before?

    Like, even in his own universe he was at least only overshadowed by the memory of Peter Parker sometimes, now he is literally overshadowed by Peter Parker: The Amazing Spider-Man, World's Greatest Superhero

    I can see that it's something that is annoying people, yeah

    I just disagree about the validity of that
    So

    you're saying you can understand how it is annoying people

    but it isn't valid for them to be annoyed???

    they are still getting what they want

    now someone else is also getting what they want so

    that's... totally fine as far as I am concerned

    Marvel announced Spider-Man, starring Miles Morales and saying it would bring him to the forefront of the Marvel universe and that he would be the Spider-Man

    then they announced Amazing Spider-Man, starring Peter Parker saying it has Peter as the world's greatest superhero having turned Spider-Man into a global icon and is now living as a famous globe trotting billionaire with Slott outright saying "he is the greatest Spider-Man".

    For those who were really excited for the first premise, how can you not think being annoyed at the reveal of the second is valid?

    And by the way, for long term readers, Peter is actually Spider-Man, and Miles is Spider-Man II or whatever you want to call it

    On account of the fact that Peter has been around for years and many people have grown up with those comics, cartoons or whatever

    Miles is never going to just supplant him for these fans. That's not how being work. I like, I dunno, Sam Alexander! I think he's cool. But he's Nova II, and the original Nova for me is Richard Rider. Because I read those books first and loved the character. That's... okay, surely?

    You also refuse to consider Jane to be the real Thor, so, grain of salt and all that because she's been accepted like crazy by the fan base.

    Hey so, given past discussions and where they've gone

    I don't want to talk about this comic or it's contents at all

    so let's just drop that right now

    It's the same argument you've been making for a while now. "This isn't the REAL (hero name) no one will accept it". Except that people have accepted it, because to most people being told so by the people creating the character is enough for them.

    Anyway, back then, a lot of people (including myself) were saying that it would be really cool if Spider-Man could leave the whole fighting crime out of Aunt May's cellar behind and go on to the big leagues, using his tech and getting resources and becoming a global hero? And that would be cool! That's a new spin on an established character that I care about which seems to fit his story of recent years and work with his character and the development thereof

    That's why the book stands out, it seems like so much more of a natural development of the character due to the time it's taken for Slott to take Peter there, and not just some rushed, haphazard, ooh look let's throw these characters together for a press release kind of deal.

    I don't care about Miles Morales but that Peter Parker book is one of the very few that look like I'd enjoy them.

    I don't see why people shouldn't get that book just because there is also a Miles Morales book.

    Did anyone say that? I think people were more annoyed that the Peter Parker book makes the Miles Morales book superfluous

    It dosen't make it superfluous, it maybe makes it seem less vital but that's up to the individual reader, I know which of the two I plan to read.

    And the Miles book was announced first, lending credence to the idea that Marvel plans to treat it as the flagship of the franchise.
    I mean, that's fine

    but it rings really hollow to announce Miles Morales as the Spider-Man one week and then reveal THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN starring Peter Parker as the "world's greatest superhero" the next week.

    Like, even the titles create the implication. I know ASM is obviously a long-standing legacy but between "Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" which one sounds like it stars the more important character

    Plus "Amazing Spider-Man" has been THE flagship Spider-Man book for almost the entirety of the character's run. In a lot of ways you may as well just call the Miles book "Second Best Guy" for long-term readers.

    That seems like a massive stretch

    if people like Miles, they'll buy that book

    If they like Peter, they'll buy that book

    If they like both, or neither, they'll spend accordingly

    Miles has held a solo run by himself for a long while, I am sure he can do it again no problem
    No one is saying Miles can't hold a book or that he is doomed to fail

    just that Marvel is having their cake and eating it too by pushing Miles as "the" Spider-Man one week and then also having Peter Parker running around the globe as Spider-Man, bodyguard to billionaire genius Peter Parker and the "world's greatest superhero"

    It is really annoying to people who were looking forward to Miles being the Spider-Man in the MU with Peter as his mentor, as the original Spider-Man announcement sold it, only to have Peter running around as a bigger and more successful Spider-Man then ever before

    I guess, like, don't read the Parker book then? Just read the Miles one? Enjoy that and let people who like the Peter book read that? There's no exclusivity here. There's no "only one true Spider-man at a time" deal. If people are aggravated, sure, but it kind of feels like hey, you've got a book that you really wanted, here's a book for other people who wanted that, just let them read that and be happy?

    This is completely missing the point of what everyone is complaining about

    No it isn't

    People are upset that there is a Peter Parker book about him being this fantastic superhero while Miles gets a book about him being a fantastic superhero, because they feel that the Peter Parker book overshadows the role of Miles and makes him look second rate.

    I get exactly what people's point is, here

    I just don't agree with it
    Except they aren't about the same thing

    Miles is the street level, learning the ropes stopping bank robberies Spider-Man book

    Peter Parker is a billionaire genius who has turned Spider-Man, his Spider-Man, into the most popular hero in the world and is a bigger hero than ever before

    Can you not see the kind of annoying thing here for those hoping that this would bring Miles to more prominence than ever before?

    Like, even in his own universe he was at least only overshadowed by the memory of Peter Parker sometimes, now he is literally overshadowed by Peter Parker: The Amazing Spider-Man, World's Greatest Superhero

    I can see that it's something that is annoying people, yeah

    I just disagree about the validity of that
    So

    you're saying you can understand how it is annoying people

    but it isn't valid for them to be annoyed???

    No one is really arguing that a Peter Parker Spider-Man book shouldn't exist.


    All this admonishment is for Marvel marketing Miles "Spider-Man" as the one true Spider-Man for popular culture and a passing of a mantle, when Marvel is explicitly NOT DOING THIS.
    I'm not sure how I feel about a Peter Spider-Man book.

    Wait, no, that's a lie. I know what I feel about a Peter Spider-Man book. It's cheating.

    You can't go, "HEY GUYS LOOK NEW OFFICIAL SPIDER-MAN IT'S AN AFRICAN AMERICAN-HISPANIC GUY PROGRESSIVE THIS IS THE NEW SPIDER-MAN OFFICIAL HE'S THE REAL DEAL MILES YA!", with an A+ team, and then go, "OH YEAH, by the way there will be a totally NORMAL Spider-Man book for everyone who dosen't want Miles as Spider-Man read this if you don't care about Miles!"

    Especially written by Dan Slott and god knows where the hell he's taking that book.

    It's a coward's move, a smart buisness decision, but a coward's move.

    It's like the All-Male Ghostbuster's walkback in order to deal with the backlash of the All-Female Ghostbusters, or if you decided to push Captain Marvel and then decided to have a Captain Mar-Vell book for people who don't want to see a female Captain Marvel.

    It's not like I DON'T want to see what Pete is up to Post-Secret Wars, nor do I think that having a book starring him is COMPLETLY a bad idea.

    But at the very least don't pretend you're making Miles THE Spider-Man, when Peter Parker is still RIGHT THERE in his OWN GODDAMN BOOK with Spider-Man in the title with the dude who's been writing the mainline title the last 3 odd years.

    You did!

    Okay, I really don't want to sound like a dick because I like you Chincy, and I know I wrote a whole ton of words and at first glance it certainly seems that you are correct.

    But this post was about my feelings about Peter Parker Spider-Man having a book, not arguing that Peter Parker SHOULDN'T have a book

    The bolded stated as much.

    And the last part of my post makes the point I have been making in this thread since.

    If Marvel had announced them both at the same time and said HEY MILES IS GONNA BE THE STREET LEVEL SPIDER-MAN AND LEARN THE ROPES WITH THE ANAD AVENGERS AND PETER IS BASICALLY TONY STARK AND WORKING WITH THE UNCANNY AVENGERS then there would be way less of an issue here

    It's the fact that they led with Miles becoming "the" Spider-Man only to reveal Peter's new role a week later that it is really frustrating

    and you can use Web of Spider-Man.

    And it can star Peter Parker, and feature all the alt-folks, and even Venom and Toxin and hell Carnage because fuck it we'll do it live.

    And you can have Peter Parker be the main character, and even have Miles and Silk and all the others show up aplenty.

    They're saying that the two names are too close together to easily distinguish that Miles is supposed to be THE Spider-Man, and that the existence of the book is fine but the title is problematic for what Marvel is trying to accomplish.

    And now I have come to a realization that no one actually reads what I type, which is my fault, because I type alot of noise sometimes.

    My entire issue is with marketing Miles as THE Spider-Man and then walking that back with the Amazing Spider-Man announcement. From my first post on the subject.

    That is indeed alot of venom thrown in ASM's way.

    But I assue you.

    It's purely directed at Marvel.

    I'm not 100% sure how to soften that blow.

    I'm just wildly unexcited for Parker as high tech global Spider-Man because it's going to lead to the same shit Stark does, there's no reason for him to be fighting global scale villains because that's what the Avengers are for, and I just don't think that Great Power/Great Responsibility works at the global level without him leveraging financial power to create positive political/ecological/sociological change and that's something that Marvel has historically handled fairly poorly and it's just going to lead to more Iron Man bullshit.
