He's still a character that occasionally dips into the street level stuff. Plus, none of his rogues were really upgradd powerwise with him.
Though I do think it's kind of cheap that all his upgrades (and JMS's entire run in general) were just magically removed, odds are for the most part we won't be able to tell the difference.

I mean if they can't remember why they didn't conclude Spidey was a Skrull, what motive exists in their head now for him still being around? I mean even Dr. Strange isn't supposed to know who he is now, mucheless those other paranoid heroes.
Its a bloody mess is what it is. Bendis' original story was already kind of ridiculous and this just made it ten times worse.
Bendis with his decompressed storytelling, combined with Marvel's quick shoe horn of OMD means this may not be resolved for months.
In all seriousness, they could make spidey in black a Skrull and that would solve a lot of problems (quesada already took care of the fact, like it or not, that no one remembers his secret identity).
Apparently he's class 20 but he THINKS he's class 10. Just like he has bone claws and organic webbing but doesn't remember.
His altered night vision, enhanced Spidey sense, ability to use the web to sense stuff, etc. has been SO totally forgotten apparently they don't manifest anymore, even though the stuff that caused them to appear "still happened", and thus he must have them.
Apparently he also has a new superpower of being a really easily confused dumbass. I mean he must, to explain why he has a memory which must surely be like Swiss cheese now and doesn't wonder about it.
I kind of think or hope) that Spidey will be in his black costume until after SI. He could have his absence after that. Except if this is all a trick, and he is revealed to be a skrull in his spotlight issue.
New Avenger's Spidey has to be a Skrull.
He got taken out so easy by Elloe when he's lasted longer against much more stronger and capable bricks.
When criminals want to scare one another they tell each other Joker stories.
Tell me where the "ability to use the web to sense stuff" and him talking with spiders and stuff have been used.
well, ok, the ability to talk to spiders and stuff was used once)
He's the lucky one. Now if only the rest of us could forget he ever had those abilities.Apparently he's class 20 but he THINKS he's class 10. Just like he has bone claws and organic webbing but doesn't remember.
"if you ever disagree it means that you are wrong."
That said, its still interesting that he supposedly has them but doesn't know he has them.
The night vision was the most wasted in the months after they insisted he now had it. I mean it seems like he'd be using it CONSTANTLY. Its unconscious, automatic, and in your face everytime he's in darkness.
And how could he "forget" he has night vision? How is that even possible?
Personally I think they should have had the reveal just be a fake out. It's cliched, btu deals with the devil aren't any better IMO.
I took it to mean that Spidey hasn't been seen for awhile, but has been lying low with the rest of the avengers, and just not really throwing his face out there.
Bendis has said on many occasions that Spidey is staying with the NA. He was apparently part of the OMD brain trust (or at least consulted) so Im sure he has something up his sleeve to at least try and make sense of the continuity. Although the first thing had better be the NA knowing his identity.
