|How Spider-Man should NOT be written!|
We’ve all seen the damage that Joe Quesada has done to Spider-Man. The crap pretending to be Amazing Spider-Man since Brand New Day has started.
For the past year we’ve seen Marvel’s vision of what according to them, Spider-Man should be. In ergo, a total worthless loser who’s never accomplished anything, and will never ever accomplish anything of importance.
Someone who’ll never be in more than short term relationships and is still hooked to his mother figure with no hope of ever growing up.
A middle aged manchild with no maturity, no sense of responsibility; and who is utterly unlikable, unreliable and unrelatable in every which way; and why? Because people like Joe Quesada, like Joe Slott can not find it in themselves to relate to a good, decent and heroic married man.
As such I’ve been thinking that regardless of everything else. We can do better.
As a fandom, there are plenty of Spider-Man fans out there who’ve been reading Spidey for years, who have genuine love for the character and who are tired of the crap being forced on us by Marvel editorial.
As such I was hoping to find fellow fans willing to help me co-write a Spider-Man series, possibly if artists are willing to join in, with its own cover art. Plotlines and such same can be determined once we got writers to discuss plot ideas with.
The one thing I’m hoping for is to start this new series at the point where ASM lost it’s soul, aka OMD. To write a Spider-Man who would NOT make a deal with the devil and then see how we can pull him out of the unmasking and the consequences of Civil War without wrecking his continuity or character development.
So anyone interested?
Edit: I just created a com for this virtual series.
