Well Spider-Verse keeps on trucking on, and the overall attitude of grimdarkness seems to have even ensnared Spider-Girl in its web. However, there is still hope: she's appearing in Spider-Verse team-up, once more in the capable hands of Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz. As a result, I've decided to post my very first entry on s_d to share in the joy that is Spider-Girl. (I've endeavoured to keep it within the bounds of the rules, and I apologise in advance if I've inadvertently broken any or otherwise mess up).

One of the things I liked the most about Superior Spider-Man was the romance between Otto Octavius (in Peter Parker's body) and Anna Maria Marconi. It gave Otto some humanity but it was also nice to see a non-stereotypical little person for once (although it's getting better with characters like Tyrion from A Song of Ice and Fire).

I thought long and hard over this (other candidates being Spider-Man 2 or Batman: The Animated Series) but in the end I came over to 'Spectacular Spider-Man'.

When it debuted Spider-Man was in a pretty dour state in the comics and this show was really the only place I could get my 'fix' of Spider-Man. In many ways I think Spectacular is the definitive adaptation of the character. Greg Weisman and co. did a great job combining different elements from all the past incarnations; the classic comics, the Ultimate line, the films, etc. An example: when Spider-Man gets the black costume it looks like how it did in Spider-Man 3 -- a black and white version of the regular costume. However, as the symbiote's control begins to grow, the spider on the chest grows bigger and the webs start to disappear until we get the classic black costume. 

Everything about it was perfect. The Spider-Man stuff was great but there was also a lot of focus on Peter's relationships with Gwen, Harry, MJ, etc. The whole series is on Blu-ray right now and it looks stunning in HD.

And then it was cancelled after two seasons as a result of Sony selling the animation rights back to Marvel. And in it's place was Ultimate Spider-Man. I don't want to rag on the USM cartoon too much as it's really not that bad and it's gotten better but... yeah. It stings.

While I think he's stretched too thin at the moment at his peak Bendis delivered some of my favorite comics. His run on Daredevil is probably one of my all time favorites and his work with Bagley on Ultimate Spider-Man is in my opinion one of the definitive runs for the character.

It's hard to find one definitive moment but here's one that I think that shows his knack for dialogue, plotting and humor.

I don't have the time or resources to make an exhaustive post about all my faves (which would probably take a series of six or seven posts), so I'll just take this time to blather on about the first guy that comes to mind: a certain Mr. Nolan who has created some of my favorite Batman-

I've discussed my thoughts on Superior Spider-Man for a while now and it certainly needs no introduction here, so I'll keep it brief. I really enjoyed Otto's character in this as he lives Peter's life and tries to be a hero in ways that only a supervillain would. For the first time since 2007 I was actually interested in 616 Spider-Man again. Part of me's hoping that he'll resurface again somehow after the events of being time-displaced during 'Spiderverse'.

A few scans from earlier posts as well as some new ones...
