cyberghostface: (Spidey & MJ)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Last post for today, sorry.

We flashback to the events of 'Ultimatum' when Magneto was flooding the city.

In present time, Galactus from the 616 universe is attacking.

I really hope this goes well for Miles and his dad don't get angry at him much.

Likewise! Or if he does get angry, not in a way that hurts their relationship *too* badly ("I love you but I want you to stop being Spider-man" would be ok).

... I have a friend whose last conversation with her father ended with him saying, basically, "I love you but I wish you would stop being bi"

I suspect we have different baselines for what constitutes "ok".

That's pretty bad.

But I'm thinking of more how being Spider-man is a dangerous job. It'd hardly be the first hero who's parents wanted them to quit (iirc in MC2 Peter Parker sometimes got on his daughter's case on it!).

Right, but there's a difference between being bi and being Spiderman.

This would be more the equivalent of saying, "I love and accept you, but I wish you would stop going out at night and getting into fights with armed criminals."

I'm glad they didn't shy away from the prejudice/Racist angle just because Miles is a minority.

Have any of these plot points in the series at all. I find this concept being explored on a more personal level would make for a good book. Not every Parent would be like May Parker or the Kents.

Spider-powers do tend to help one fill out.

Man, that was kinda on the nose. "Son, I love you unconditionally, unless you turn out to be a mutant. I'm putting that out there right now. Under those circumstances, I will stop loving you."

It's understandable, though. Especially with the sheer amount of shit Ultimate Magneto managed to pull in such a short period - drowning New York wasn't the only thing he did, after all. It's actually pretty understandable why people in the Ultimate Universe are afraid of and hate mutants. I get the feeling that Miles' Dad might just be saying that in the heat of the moment, given it's immediately post-New York, but still..

I think he wasn't critisizing what his dad said just how it was written. Like, that's some really obvious "GEEEEEET IT?" writing.
