And just think he'll probably be "under 30" until the end of time to keep him relate-able to teenagers

Well, if we're complaining about that, Bruce Wayne should be over 100 by now.

At least Bruce has a ten year old son to demonstrate that he has aged somewhat over the "years"

Except that DC continuity gets reset and overwritten every decade or two, so the characters staying young isn't much of a problem. It's a lot more awkward in Marvel's case, where the stories about a teenaged Peter Parker in the 1960s are supposed to be in the same continuity as the stories about a twenty-something Peter in the 2000s.

I gave up on Marvel Comics because of nonsense like this, not to mention all the tie-ins that force you to purchase multiple titles you don't care about to keep up with a story. I guess when I want a Spider-Man fix I'll read those Marvel Masterworks books.

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

I've picked up a couple of Post-OMD trades and they've been entertaining. But I'm too turned off by how they got there to regularly read Spidey again. I feel like after the Clone Saga where I was told that the Spider-Man I grew up with in the 80s and 90s was a fake. Yeah, that was reversed but they kept up the conceit long enough for me to get embittered with the franchise and stop reading for years.

It wasn't until 2001 when JMS started writing Amazing Spider-Man that I came back to the character...And then One More Day happened. I'm just sick of collecting these stories and then being told "Nope, didn't actually happened the way you thought."

I'm twice burned now, I feel like if I start reading Brand New Day Spidey on a regular basis they'll just go back to the other continuity or bring back Ben Reilly who really WAS the real Peter Parker all along or they'll kill Peter Parker 616 off and make 1610 Ultimate Peter Parker the Spider-Man in the 616 universe or......!

I don't care if he's married or not, honestly, just don't tell me the guy makes deals with the devil, sacrificing his marriage for his elderly aunt! Aunt May would be furious if she knew what Peter did, and I really feel like it is a betrayal of Peter's MO, "With great power comes great responsibility." Peter made the choice to reveal his identity, it was a mistake that cost his Aunt her life, could've been a great way to reiterate Spider-Man's most fundamental ideal but instead we get a cop out deal with Mephisto.

So I'll pick up any buzz worthy trades but I'm through picking up the comic on a weekly/monthly basis.

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

Speaking of, a new trade just came out "Died In Your Arms Tonight" which collects #600-1 and an annual and some other stuff. Is this a particularly good story worth shelling out the bucks for?

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

Quick rambling...

I liked the Spider-Man issue of The List written by Dan Slott. I liked the fact that the first public chink in Osborn's armor came at the hands of not only his arch-foe Spider-Man (working solo), but also at the hands of his son's best friend Peter Parker, working with the press. That makes it a personal defeat for Osborn on two different levels.

I'm sure that Spidey will still figure in the Dark Reign story as a member of the Avengers (and I'm apparently one of the few that like Spidey as an Avenger), but with all of the history between Parker and Osborn, Peter deserved to get off the first shot in Norman's downfall on his own.

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

I read a recent interview with Dan Slott for the List and I believe he mentioned that he would be shocked if Peter wasn't involved in some way with Norman's downfall, his list issue was just the start of things to come down the line.

Also I saw that Marvel's Feb Solicitations have Spider-Man: The Clone Saga Part One TPB listed so I guess they're finally publishing the Clone Saga in trade format again. As much as I despised the storyline I'll be picking them up.

^ They recently did a remake of the Clone Saga as a ?12 issue? comic book mini-series so it's probably just that.

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

^ No I checked...it's not the Clone Saga as it should have been mini-series...and that's only four issues. This is the actual 1990's one.

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

I just re-read House of M and realized that if they wanted to break up the marriage, that was a perfect point to do it at. Peter ends the series really shell-shocked after having "lived" through being married to Gwen and having Uncle Ben alive again. I think that would make a growing distance between him and MJ more believable.

Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

Well according to the Spider-Man brain trust there were apparently discussions to bring back Gwen as well but they felt that would've been too much. If they brought back Harry then I would have liked to have seen Gwen too. It might've actually helped convince me to buy this stuff again.

I always liked Gwen more than MJ.
I guess 'cause Pete was dating Gwen when I started buying the mag.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but you're talking about the Scarlet Witch "erasing" the marriage, right?

Problem is that they limited it to her erasing just most of the mutants from existence. And both Spidey and MJ are not mutants. So how would you "make it work" in the context of the story. I guess the challenge is how would you do it without changing the whole storyline (that Scarlet Witch changes more than just erasing the mutants but actually changes the whole world's history by erasing certain events including Peter's marriage).

I quite enjoyed reading about Gwen in Spider-Man: Blue
