First of all, hi.
I am back to reviewing(sorta) because i felt that this opinion has to be written.
I stopped reading Spider-Man after Spider-Verse, for obvious reasons, and i am still deciding on if i read the new series, which is just horendous as a concept, in my honest opinion, and the writer helming Spider-Man doesn't help my case, so we'll see.
Secondly, this is not an issue 5 review, it's an opinion on the story, in general.I just put issue 5, because it's the last one.
Now, the story, as a story, is decent.Okay.
But the importance of it, in non-existant.And that's what i care about, in THAT kind of story.It's a Secret Wars tie-in.
It's a What If, random little tale, of Peter Parker being married to Mary Jane Watson (CRAZY concept, amirite?!) and having a little kid, called Annie, which i find really great, as a matter of fact.To all of you who shout "SHE SHOULDA BEEN CALLED MAY" , i remind you that MJ is a part of this family too, and her Aunt was as significant to her, as May was to Pete.So there.
The story is full of "responsible" moments, and doubts, and dilemmas, and everything.Again, i can't complain, it's a good What If story to read.
But it has ABSOLUTELY no impact on the NEW and IMPROVED
SpOck 2.0 rich Spider-Man, who travels all around the globe, has speedy cars, and a truckload of money.And a fancy new suit, with glowing eyes.Stop me if you get it why this is at least a tad wrong....
As one of my friends pointed out, this seems like a Swan Song to the happilly married Peter Parker.It's a 5 issue story, to make marriage fanboys shut the hell up AND KILL THE BATMAN!!......sorry, got carried away...was playing Arkham Origins earlier, Joker's in my head all day.
As i was saying, it's a story to please the fans of the married Peter Parker, and as a matter of fact, it was a trick story.When i was saying in the forums that "It's Marvel, this is gonna be a quick story, and they'll get back to Spider-Man being whatever-Slott-seen-on-Doctor Who-lately Spider-Man." i was getting mugged off, and called a hater.
Well, how do you guys feel now?!.....thought so.
Spider-Man is going to hell.At least Peter does.
With Miles having a title called "SPIDER-MAN" now, and Mary freaking Jane, being a regular in Iron freaking Man, it's all going to hell.
I know i'm gonna be called a hater, a racist, a misoginist, that i fear change, and whatever the hell you can think of, because this is the internet, and logic comes last in any conversation, but the fact is that i love this character, and the people around him, and i just don't want for him to dissapear in the dust of some boy-men who don't know what to do with him, anymore.
Dan Slott's been on the character , (that's an extremely polite way of putting it) and Nick Lowe is a massive X-Men fan......that's it.
I pray for Feige to do good with the character, so maybe we get something better with him in the comicbooks.
Plus, the story's called "Renew Your Vows" ......we didn't get anything on this front.Not even a ceremony.I will die not knowing if they did renew them, or not.....OH WAIT...............
It doesn't matter.
