I've read this a few times. It puzzles me a bit. Aside from Joey getting left on the roof for hours on end.

"I can't move or talk and will die in a few years, but Spider-Man seems *really* miserable. Like he's suffering a never-ending emotionally-stunting guilt complex that prevents him from being happy."

Don't go toe-to-toe with an all-time favorite like "The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man" unless you're really, really sure you can stand in that company.

I think the point of the comparison is that the worst part, for Joey, is feeling like he's failed his father and sister by inconveniencing them, whereas Peter feels like he's failed his Uncle Ben and therefore Aunt May by yadda yadda yadda. In that sense, he's right: Peter's sense of failure is greater than Joey's.

But yeah, Peter has gotten the compensating benefits of incredible super-powers, an enviable sexual history, two or three fulfilling careers and the ability to speak and move, none of which Joey will ever get, so I think calling his life sadder than Joey's is more than a little over the top.

That doesn't seem like Morbius to me. Looks nothing like him.

And am I the only one who hates Morbius? Like, total yawnfest whenever he shows up. Him and Man-Bat.

Eh. There are stories here and there where they seem to team him up with Blade or other horror figures as a decent enough anti-hero. But yeah, as a villain, he's pretty "meh."

That was anti climactic, I was figuring that Morbius would have bitten him and he would be up and moving around.

That sounds exciting but any way you resolve that story if Joey is to be stopped would be tragic.
