And Spidey's mask is the worst offender. That's why there have been artists who played around with his mask, using the eyes to convey emotion. Todd MacFarlene was known for that.Originally Posted by David Walton
MJ was suspicious before then when they had kissed at the end of the first film and she thought it felt familiar when they had kissed earlier.The big difference between the trilogy and Webb's reboot is that Raimi at least had semi-plausible reasons for Peter to take the mask off, like when it caught on fire or was filled with sand. And he didn't give his identity away to Mary Jane at the first opportunity. Technically, he never gave it away. She just saw him without his mask at the end of SM2.

I'm not really a fan of the trend.
