    I liked Wonder Man.

    I should probably start reading whatever Avengers book has Spidey in it...

    I lost all faith in modern Spider-Man comics when he started talking to spiders, and yet this still makes me want to cry.
    There's like three different Spider-Man series running at any given time and you choose the crappy, cancelled one to take seriously?
    I chose to mention that one because it's the best example of why Marvel has lost all their fucking marbles.
    So two out of three of the series are great, but one that they cancelled makes Marvel shitty? Makes perfect sense. A flawless exercise of logic, if I understand this correctly. Bravo.
    They are only great in your opinion. I think two of the titles are total shit, and the other is just okay.

    Oh yes Gwen fucking Norman and having genetically altered twins was SUCH a good storyline.

    ASM and SSM both went down the crapper ages ago. Ultimate Spider-Man is the only decent Spidey read out there, and even that isn't too impressive.

    Okay, fine, you don't like Spider-Man, we get it. You can shut up now. You've made your point.

    I havent liked JSM's Spiderman for a while now, it didnt help that its very easy to get bored of Romita Jr's art. I was already bored when they did the shit with Gwen and the twins, which was a fucking abortion, I have never dropped a comic with so little hesitation.

    Marvel Knights has been pretty great I think, started with a very stong story line and since then has basically been "Spider-man: of the Avengers" which is good since joining the group is one of the best things that has been done with him. And I think overall the last Spectacular's run was pretty good, only dipping with some of the one-off issues and the Disassemble tie-in (which was okay until he turned into a fucking spider and gave birth to himself)

    Hard to say about Friendly Neibourhood Spidey, since so far its been tied into The Other, but Im unsure about Pat Lee drawing anything that isnt a robot, he just cant seem to do human faces right.

    I've heard that spider-man will be given new powers in addition to the new costume. In this recent spider-man "the other" arc, there is the concept that Spidey has only touched the surface of his true potential:
    Strength. Senses. Agility. Adhesion. The Web. These were the simplest tools which you had been given. The ones a child would find exciting... and stopped before anything more exciting but also more disturbing was discovered. The child never asked and the man never returned to the question... what happens when you merge a man... with a spider?

    So those extra legs... maybe not Tony's creation? Although they certainly do look mechanical.

    Nah, he's gonna have all the powers that Morlun had. (Which is going to make him one of the strongest people in the Marvel Universe.)

    Apparently so, all I can find if that its under Dark Horse (I thought they were both Marvel exclusive) is it already out/collected?

    It looks too much like Crimson. I picked it up but with out vampires it just wasn't the same. And Humberto earned respect from me with his run on Impulse. The picture thought bubbles were perfect and no one else has been able to do impulse with the right mix of sadness and humor since he stopped drawing it. :cry:

    The black costume was cool. Spidey changing costumes and going through metamorphosis is part of the character.

    How I imagine this idea came about:
    Bachalo "What are the worst Spider-Man Costumes?"
    Quesada "The The Scarlet Spider, The Steel Spider, and The Armored Spider-Man, why do you ask?
    Bachalo "I bet I could design all those into one costume and make it look cool."
    Quesada "Oh you're on!"

    STOP ASKING I JUST WANT IT TO GO AWAY

    edit: I really do hate sounding like a rabid fanboy even though I am one. It's just... why do we need to do this? Spider-Man is already recognizable, popular, and interesting. Do we need to fuck with his status quo every couple of years? Does he need a clone or a new costume or a girlfriend change every other time there's a big crossover? I don't get it.

    Without momentum things stagnate. Of course the status quo needs to get shaken up a little every now and then, otherwise you'll be complaining that the status quo isn't being shaken up sufficiently.

    I think he did the best Venom EVER. The whole "not in shape" thing was a brilliant idea and I would love him to stay like that. It's a lot more interesting than his usual 'muscular man with a monster face' look.

    Yeah, I'm all for things getting shaken up and all, but let's try and stick with good ideas, not awful ones. Spider-Man has had the one of the least-changing costumes in comic book history, and it's because his suit is perfect for him as it is. I don't see this suit even lasting as long as the black suit, just until Marvel can no longer convince themselves that fans are going to like this.

    Did you miss the reprints with the like, 8 costumes he's had?
