Spider-man is not an "outcast" or "loner". As I pointed out before, he's teamed up with damn near everyone in the MU before. It seems some fans have this image of him as some lovable loser who never catches a break and is still a broke student pinching pennies and being hated by the public. Hate to tell you, but those days are long gone. That image is a misconception.
Pete went from being a married man that worked for Stark to being a single guy who takes photos for a tabloid rag. He's pretty well downtrodden.

And someone explain to me why Luke Freakin Cage can be an Avenger and not be called a sell out or have his character questioned by fans. This was Mr "Hero for Hire" who was in it just for the money and now he's leading the Avengers? I don't see anyone on here complaining about that, but everyday someone is complaining about Spidey and Wolvie being on the Avengers. Come on.
Beast moved from the X-Mansion to the Avengers Mansion. Moon Knight HAS his own mansion being a Batman clone. Once Luke Cage partnered with Iron Fist he started making real money and moved his offices to midtown.
Pretty much nobody cares what D-Man does so it is not an issue with him.
You could do a non-underdog Spider-Man. JMS' Spider Man was not an underdog.
But Marvel clearly went in the other direction with the character.
