Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man - Me myself and I
It's all about me
Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man
For me it's now official. Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man is the real Spidey. MA Spidey is the Peter Parker that I've loved since I was a kid. And no, it's not because he's a teenager, it's because in many ways, he behaves a million times as mature than the guy pretending to be Spider-Man in ASM.

It's because he knows the meaning of responsibility, and not only does he understand what it means to do the right thing for the right reasons. He can teach this same thing to others. He's intelligent, kind, compassionate, adorkable, in short, he's everything that Spider-Man should be.

And on top of that, I love the new female character that the writer's been using. Chat is a fully fleshed out character, who can be sweet, annoying and most of all, who can be all those things at the same time. She's not just a bit of cheesecake to show off for the boys. She's not an annoying bimbo, or a bitch or...

She's a person, with flaws and strengths who can be funny and compassionate and though I doubt that her and Peter dating would really work, for several reasons, I still like seeing scenes between her and Peter.

In short, why can't the writers of ASM take a hint or ten from MA in how to handle Spidey?

I ought to read this.

Ultimate Spider-man has been "my" Spider-man for a while now, but this sounds like a lot of fun too.

Ultimate Spidey's good, don't get me wrong. But MA Spidey's better. Though a huge part of that is because the world he lives in is much more fun than the Ultimate verse. Marvel Adventures quite simply is a fun verse to visit whenever possible.

PS: so did you want that com or not?*eg*

Yes, I would like it! But I think the fest will be taking place sometime early New Year's. The fic exchange season is really busy this year, and I'm busy with school stuff, so I figure this year we'll probably do an exchange shortly after Yuletide, and then next year I'll aim to make it a part of the holiday fic exchange season.

Thanks for offering. Having a pre-made comm is going to make this so much easier. :)

Will make you a mod then*g*

Personally I'm sure I'm not the only person happy to see it next year instead of now. I've already got two ficathons plus a big bang that are due in december.

I think it's a "brine changes the pickle, the pickle doesn't change the brine" thing. Dan Slott was perfectly fun and awesome before being part of BND but ... que sera. If they put Jeff Parker on ASM with the current editorial edicts the same thing would happen.

Yeah, basically the biggest problem right now is in editorial. If they just kicked out Quesada and Wacker, we might actually have a chance of getting decent Spider-Man stories again. It's that and the constant turn around of writers.

One writer would get tired of writing Peter losing every single fight, but with all the different writers coming in, and none of them really looking at what the other guys are doing, they don't really see the pattern that's emerging of Peter becoming a total and utter loser.
