Okay, hear me out: Spiderverse Broadway musical.
JUST THINK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES. WE GET A SUPER UPBEAT INTRO TO ALL THE CHARACTERS IN ALL THEIR DIFFERENT UNIVERSES AND IT’S SO HAPPY AND BRIGHT AND ENSEMBLE-Y AND GOOD. MJ WHOSE PETER JUST DIED GETS A HEART-WRENCHING SOLO SONG ABOUT HER PAIN THAT MAKES LITERALLY EVERYBODY CRY AND TRANSITIONS INTO PETER B.’S SONG ABOUT LOSING HIS MJ. THERE’S A SONG THAT EVERY SPIDEY SINGS ABOUT BEING AN ORPHAN AND LOSING THEIR UNCLE BENS. MILES AND GWEN GET AN AWKWARD SONG ABOUT BEING YOUNG AND HAVING CRUSHES AND BEING FRIENDS AND NOT KNOWING WHAT YOU’RE FEELING. NOIR GETS A 40s INSPIRED NUMBER TO TELL HIS BACKSTORY. THE POWER BALLAD THAT DOC OC COULD GET.
JUST. A SPIDERVERSE MUSICAL. PLEASE.
I am almost done drawing the crew 😊
Spider-Man Reviews Teil 149
“Enter: Dr. octopus!”
Amazing Spider-Man 53
Autor: Stan Lee
Zeichner: john Romita Sr.
Spidey liest Jonahs letzteb Artikel und ärgert sich sehr das JJ ihn als den Bösen in Foswells Tod darstellt.
An der Uni ist Harry sauer da peter nie da ist und er seine Anruf beantworten muss. Prof Warren lädt ihn und Gwens in eine wissenschaftliche Austellung ein.
Dort geht peters spinnesinn los doch er sieht keine Gefahr. Eine neue Abwehrwaffe soll vorgeführt werden doch Doc Ock ist im puplikum und will sie stehlen. Peter nütz die ablekung und wird zu Spider-Man. Er kämpft sich mit Ock quer durchs museum und kann ihn ohne Beute in die Flucht schlagen.
Auf der flucht entdeckt Ock den Spinnensender den peter angebracht hat und kommt auf eine Idee. In Coffebean treffen sich Peter und Gwen später mit den anderen und werden von Anna und May überrascht die sagen das sie ein Zimmer vermieten.
Später macht sich Peter auf die Suche nach Ock und findet ihn in seinen Stuhl sitzend. Doch peter ist vorsichtig und greift mit einer netzkugel an. Zum glück den ock ist ein explosiver Dummi an den der Spinnensender begestigt wurde. Durch den netzball explodiert er und Ock denkt Spidey sei tot nun will er erst mal entspannen.
Peter schwört sich ihn zu finden und ahnt nicht das Ock an Mays tür klopft wegen den Zimmer.
Hier geht tante May Doc Ock blödheit weiter und wird bald ein neues Level erreichen.
Nebenfigur: Jonah, Gwen, Flash, Harry, Prof. warren, MJ, May, Anna

Peni: Alright, tall person. Time to pay the tall person toll.
Gwen: What? I’m not giving you money just because I’m taller than you.
Peni: That’s fine. The toll booth also accepts bribery in the form of kisses.

The awful character has been praised and protected and given
special treatment by the fans, and especially Marvel, for far, far too long. It’s
time we all woke up and saw this dreadful character for who she is! As such
here are just a few (of a potential 500 I assure you) reasons Mary Jane sucks!
1. She’s a readhead
Famously Mary Jane has red hair.
You know what else is red?
Fire HURTS people!
What’s Marvel trying to say huh?
That kids should play with fire!
2. Her entire character is about drugs
Mary Jane is slang for marijuana. In presenting a sexy character called Mary Jane in the 1960s the deviants that were Stan Lee and John Romita Senior OBVIOUSLY were trying to encourage people to use weed, the most dangerous drug of all time!
3. She was clearly the main villain of Into the Spider-Verse
It stated that Mary Jane betrayed Peter Parker to the Kingpin in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Whilst I hold the utmost respect for that poster’s clinical film analysis skills, I have to disagree.
Mary Jane didn’t betray Peter to the Kingpin.
Because the Kingpin was clearly working for her the whole time!
Once you spot the clues it’s incredibly obvious. A subtle but really big example is the Kingpin’s body language throughout the movie. Kids and dumber viewers might not have noticed it but that’s the body language of someone in fear of his superiors, someone who is subservient in absolutely every way.
But WHO could he be working under? Who else but Mary Jane…from Peter B. Parker’s universe.
That’s what makes his ending so tragic. He rings that doorbell at the end of the movie and doesn’t realize he’s delivered himself into the hands of the true evil of the multiverse!
4. She made Peter quit being Spider-Man
Whenever I bring this point up people seem to presume I’m talking about the groan inducing years she was married to Spider-Man. Not true. Mary Jane’s toxic influence upon our hero predates that. She didn’t just make him quit during the Spider-Marriage but in fact EVERY time he ever quit.
Spider-Man No More? That was her?
Amazing Spider-Man #17? That was her too! I know Peter hadn’t actually met her back then but facts are facts those 5 minutes he retired were all down to her!
5. Marrying Spider-Man made Spider-Man comics bad for 20 years!
It’s been well documented by astute and respected creators like Joe Quesada, Dan Slott and Tom Brevoort many times before, but when Mary Jane married Spider-Man the Spider-Man books tanked big time.
In fact EVERY comic sunk to a new low. Rob Liefeld drew X-Force. Iron Man became a teenager. Superman got a mullet.
This can all be very directly traced back to Mary Jane marrying Spider-Man, a fact I blame the character for first and foremost not the writers. I mean when you have a character like that in your comic books it’s essentially inevitable that good writing isn’t an option.
Thank God for Joe Quesada’s Magmum Opus. Without it we’d have been denied all time classics like Amazing Spider-Man #553, an issue so memorable I don’t even need to reference anything from it. Y’all KNOW what I’m talking about!
6. She was RACIST!
Now okay TECHNICALLY Mary Jane was never really been racist.
But subtext is a thing and MJ famously hated Spidey’s black costume and his ex girlfriend Black Cat, both of which were always intended to subtextually represent the African American community.
Thus MJ’s dislike of them was unsubtle as it was bigoted.
Mary Jane hates black people.
7. She encourages sadomasochism
Not only is MJ’s name slang for a drug but think about what her name rhymes with?
Through her Marvel sought to encourage impressionable readers to harm themselves through subtle subconscious rhyming. Kids aren’t dumb they’d obviously make the connection!
8. She ruined lingerie and other underwear
Throughout the Spider Marriage Marvel put Mary Jane in all manner of lingerie and sexy underwear to presumably titillate the readers.
But having such a repugnant character wear such clothing had the adverse effect of making readers repulsed by such items of clothing whenever they saw them.
Think of all the poor souls who read such comics and must have had what amounted to PTSD flashbacks upon walking into clothing stores. Think of the money that must’ve been lost for those businesses as a result.
Think of all the relationships that must’ve wrecked!
9. She’s totally bland and one note
Let’s review the all time great love interests of Spider-Man’s life shall we?
Cissy Ironwood. Marcy Kane. Deb Whitman. Aprile Maye. Carlie Cooper. Liaeean Taeeang. Gwen Stacy (well once Stan got rolling on her around issue #100 or so).
All brilliant characters who need no introduction. Characters who’s names alone conjur up vivid memories of vital moments they contributed to Spider-Man history for fans far and wide.
Why is that you may ask?
Unlike Mary Jane they had personalities!
They had character development!
I mean Marcy Kane’s progression from grad student and teaching assistant into being revealed as an alien is if we’re being honest the greatest character arc of anyone in Spider-Man history. It was so great they had to make the big reveal in the all time classic 1984 Jack of Hearts mini-series! Now you can’t say THAT about Mary Plain!
10. Marvel have always preferred her over Gwen Stacy
It’s no secret that the higher ups at Marvel, and this was especially true from the late 1990s onwards, have over idealized, over romanticized and engaged in outright revisionist history when it comes to Mary Jane, building her up as an unattainable level of greatness.
This is especially true of Joe Quesada but credit where credit is due, he was professional enough to divorce his personal feelings towards the character when crafting his opus One More Day and his almost as good sequel One Moment in Time.
But raising up Mary Jane was always at the expense of poor Gwen, surely the most underrated of all Spider-Man love interest, nay, Marvel characters of all time.
When was the last time you EVER saw Gwen get ANY appreciation huh?
Certainly not when they killed her off. Much like ITSV this story is a case of people missing the subtle clues as if you pay close attention, you can see Mary Jane literally pushing Gwen off the bridge and snapping her neck too.
Gwen deserved better of course but alas from then on we could only turn to the oh so occasional flashback to see her again. Because of this red headed devil we were denied such great scenes like that one time Gwen Stacy said she was in love with Peter or that time she cried to her Dad.
Instead we are subjected to garbage like this!
I’ve been wondering what it’d be like if the multiverse stayed connected through a social media app
Then this happened
Possible Future Suits for Insomniac’s Spider-Man.
It’s probably wishful thinking that there’ll be a Spider-Woman or equivalent in a future Insomniac game, so this is more hypothetical than the previous three. I just wanted to explore some Spider-hero ladies, and some of the suits options available to them.
1. Silk (Cindy Moon)
I put Cindy at the top, because out of all the ladies on this list, she’d probably be the easiest one to explain, having been bitten by the same spider as Parker. Harder to explain might be why she chose not to be a hero up until this point, but they could pull a pin from Ultimate Miles Morales’ book and say she just chose not to. The pheromones thing would need to be cut though, especially if Pete’s with MJ at this stage. Suit options include her original makeshift web body-suit, her more famous refined web body-suit, and the Silkworm suit she briefly used in Clone Conspiracy.
2. Jessica Drew (Classic)
The original Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew’s backstory is a bit convoluted for some, but she does have some impressive costumes, included her classic suit, though personally I prefer her more recent attire, from her time returning to P.I. work, and into motherhood.
3. Jessica Drew (Ultimate)
Of course we also have Jessica’s 1610 counterpart. Here, she’s a clone of Peter Parker with some genetic modifications, including the obvious gender swap. She had all of Peter’s memories, up until his DNA sample was taken, though she seemed to disassociate from them over time. She did however retain his taste in women.
After the break up of The Ultimates, Jessica formed and led her own team, The New Ultimates, as 1610’s third Black Widow.
Next to Cindy, this is probably the most likely Spider-Woman (or equivalent) to appear, if Insomniac decide to do their own version of the clone Saga.
4. Julia Carpenter
The Second woman to go by Spider-Woman, I honestly know Julia best as dating Tony Stark in the 90’s Iron man cartoon. She does have a great costume though, clearly inspired by the Black Suit, and she operated as the second Madame Web for a time, which brings another Suit option.
5. Mattie Franklin
The Third Spider-Woman was Martha “Mattie” Franklin, the niece of J. Jonah Jameson. I’ll be honest this is another character I don’t know much about, as I literally didn’t know she existed until she appeared in Clone Conspiracy. She does have a cool costume, though.
6. Spider-Gwen (Gwen Stacy)
Now this is a character I know a thing or two about. Known originally as Spider-Woman in her native earth-65, and now by the name Ghost Spider there and on 616, she will always be known as Spider-Gwen to fans. Initially created as a supporting character for the Spider-Verse event, the design of her suit sparked an incredible degree of interest in readers, leading to her own self titled series. Originating in a universe where she was the one bitten by the radioactive spider, rather than her friend Peter, this Gwen is still young, and early in her hero career, and thus makes a lot of mistakes, but Stacies don’t quit, and Gwen grown into her own. She even went through her own version of a Symbiote Saga, Gwenom.
Along with Ultimate Jessica Drew, this is another character that could be featured through a Clone Saga adaptation. Given Miles Warren’s historic unhealthy obsession with Gwen Stacy, he could try to clone Gwen Stacy with a spice of Spider DNA to give her powers.
7. Mayday Parker
Daughter of Peter and Mary Jane Parker from the possible future of MC2, May “Mayday” Parker initially operates under the name Spider-Girl before upgrading to Spider-Woman following the death of her father at the hands of the Inheritor, Daemos, early in the Spider-Verse event. Mayday is one of the more popular Spider Ladies of the Marvel multiverse.
8. Spiderling (Annie May Parker)
Another daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson-Parker from another alternate universe. Anna-May “Annie” Parker was first introduced as a precocious youngster in Renew Your Vows, a tie-in the the 2015 Secret Wars, which proves popular enough to continue on in an independent title. There we watched the young Spiderling grow into young woman and confident hero, and the Patternmaker, an important figure to the Web of Life and Destiny.
If you don’t consider Annie herself a viable skin option, perhaps you’d be interested in her mother MJ’s Spinneret Suit, which allows her to mimic Annie and Peter’s power set.
9. Ashley Barton
This time we have a Granddaughter of Peter Parker. Ashley hales from same timeline as Old Man Logan, where she’s the daughter of Tanya Parker and Clint Barton of all people. Given the world she grew up in, Ashley is a good deal rougher than some other spider “heroes”, and her moral compass is somewhat crooked, (the derisive nickname of Spider-Bitch should tell you all you need to know), but she’s still a good person at heart who looks out for those important to her.
10. Lady Spider
Moving in the opposite direction, we have an alternate universe version of Peter’s aunt May (pre marriage). May Reiley comes from a steam punk universe still in the late nineteenth century. A genius of mechanical engineering, May lacks any superhuman powers, and according to the Inheritors, doesn’t qualify as a spider totem, but makes up for it with her expert use of her mechanical arms.
This movie is amazing! So I made a video about it! If you have time tell me what you think! 😊
Jefferson Davis: [using a megaphone] all spidery-people need to come out with there hands up!
Gwen: oh my god, the police are here.
Miles: oh shit that’s my dad.
Peter: relax guys, as long as we’re calm and quite we can sneak out-
Peter Porker: [screaming in a giant mega phone] FUCK THE POLICE!
Spider-noir: [smashing a 40 on the ground] SCATTER!
