Observe, Orient, Decide, Act
I started reading Spider-Man when I was 9. That was 1990. Pete and MJ were already married. I never had a problem relating to a married Spider-man. I spent every penny of my allowance (and later a good sum of my earnings) on a married Spider-Man.
Spiderman will go back to normal when I get the power of the geass and use it to claim with editor of chief seat with no opposition and rule a mighty dictorship on marvel. then when the other authorities in Marvel try anything, I just use my geass and Say OBEY ME, they will go "yes your highness"
Honestly, I believed I was being clear by specifically choosing the word "identify", so I was surprised that you (and others) took that to mean "like".How should I have interpretated your original statement?
Appreciated.True enough. My apologies.
And I drew a conclusion based on the existing evidence.Because it is not on me to prove your conclusion. And the only opinion I've offered in regards to this is that I don't believe Reed and Sue were created as characters which kids wouldn't be able to relate to.
Fair point.But I wasn't the one offering up the initial absolute.
See Norman Osborn. Harry Osborn. Gwen Stacy. The Clone Saga. Spider-fans don't forget anything. All issues are current.I know your all going to say this is a current issue but we've already beatin' it too death. Then we shocked it back to life and beat it some more.
Good for you. But I suggest that if you want an exciting conversation you should start one. People here are remarkably intelligent and civil if you give them a chance. Regardless of their opinions.I think CBR should make a sub forum for all complaining about the Spider' marraige being gone. I've significantly dropped off my posting in this forum and most days only go the games forum in hopes of an exciting conversation.
Perfect humility dispenses with modesty.
Same here. Literally. I was 9 years old in 1990 as well, and I was also really getting into Spidey at that point. I really didn't care about relating to him, since even if he was a teenager I still wouldn't have been able to relate to him since he would still have been older than me and dealing with problems I wasn't going to deal with for a while. I was more interested in Spidey fighting bad guys, his cool costume, and who was drawing the book. Relating to the character was irrelevant at that point for me.Originally Posted by docholiday504
I was 3 in 1990, still exploring the workings of my body in public, most to my mother's chargin.
When will Spidey get back to normal? In 20 years time when an editor wants them married again, annoying people, who will claim that he is a pathetic fan boy crying for a bygone era. People will discuss the great works of Slott, Wells, Deery etc as the definitive Spider-Man. They will project their opinions onto others and assume because they and their two friends agree, the world wide Spider-fan base is in a concensus that the marriage will ruin Spider-Man.
And people will shout at Deery and co to save them and I will whisper, "This parody was past it's sell by date in 1988."
Oh, please. Like something that far fetched would ever happen.Originally Posted by Michael Deery
Sorry. I'm too busy getting ready to drive a busload of underprivileged kids to the gates of Walt Disney World, only to turn back the second we get there by telling them that we don't have enough money to get in.Originally Posted by Michael Deery
If Ben Reilly is truly returning or if it's just another clone or perhaps even a Peter or Ben from a parallel universe I think Marvel should hook him up with Mary Jane and then give both characters their own book.
That probably would've been the plan if the switch worked in the past. Now they can have Mary Jane truly be with a clone and Peter can remain single.
Spidey went back to normal in Jan 2008. But I guess it was so long since it had been normal that some would ask themselves that question.
