I really don't like these annual publisher-wide "events." It just complicates things.

I like pancakes. What's the diff? Why didn't Stan just say "pancakes?" That's what's always struck me funny about "wheatcakes," as a Spidey fan. I know I'm not alone on this.

I'm just glad it wasn't meatcakes.

WTF? He's SPIDER-man!! Not CATERPILLAR-man!!!

For Joe Q:

Karloff?

Karloff?

F*** YOU!!!!

God Stern was really humming along this week.

This is so utterly stupid I can hardly find words for it. What's next, reintroducing the Spider-Mobile for "My Killer, The Car II - This Time It's StarkTechnical"? And I see he's shooting webs out of the backs of his hands again. Jesus Christ!

Maybe you'll remember, Dennis...Web of Spider-Man #100, right? The "Spider-Armor" that lasted all of ONE ISSUE...before...I think Doc Ock smashed it apart...

Where did Peter get that ugly piece o' shit from? I can't remember. Like it matters, but it's one of those things that'll bug me...


I saw the book in passing but wasn't reading Spider-titles at the time. Here's a nice link to a review of the piece of shit.

Thanks! You're a god, brotha. You didn't have to go to this trouble; I thought you (or someone on the thread) might just remember it off the top of yer head. Comic fans remember the strangest details about other people's (fictional) lives, right?

I was thinking Reed Richards built it for him, but that was something else. Peter built the (HA!) Spider-Armor himself. Jeez, no WONDER I forgot...that really WAS a bad issue...

:lol: the first thing i thought when i saw it on Marvels homepage was "yes, the spider-man cartoon set in the alternate world is coming back"
...


...

and then i read the article.
eh, im indifferent, it wont make the book any LESS intresting, but i think he will be back to his old costume by the fall...

It only took about twenty minutes, and most of that was me reeling at the damned thing and reading the review. Somebody was offering a CGC 10.0 copy for over three grand.

Interesting, isn't it, that a tinkerer like Peter Parker could build that armor?

Yeah, just some spare scrap metal he had laying around the apartment... and some shit from that one drawer in the kitchen. It was finished between classes. Easy.

I actually sort of like the design but the story sounds less than stellar and as a general guideline in life I don't like "revamps"......Though Spidey is probably the only character I can think of with sooo many different outift changes over the years and one the (black) that the fans generally seem to like aside from the original design.

I bet he used carbon composites like the BSG's Blackbird.

in the newest issue, Spidey has these stingers that shoot out of his wrists. they look like long spider legs.

maybe that's what those things are.

No, if you read up of JQ's comments, those arms are mechanical. They actually call them 'technical arms' or something like that. Those 'stingers' are actually organic... and uh, gross.

so spidey is going to have mechanical arms, plus stingers that shoot out of his actual arms.

he's going to be eight legged...

this is so stupid.

i'm just reading "Mary Jane loves Spiderman" from now on and THAT'S IT.

Well, the last issue I read was the second most recent (Amazing Spider-Man 527, The Other part 9 of 12), and apparently Peter just awoke from the dead, having shed his old skin "as a spider does once in its lifetime." He looks just the same, but we're left to debate if what remains is, in actuality, "the man who dreamed of being a spider" or "the spider who dreamed of being a man" . . . sort of a fight of that duality within him that I don't think even he knows who the victor was.

Doesn't look any worse than some of the McFarlane poses.

What's weird is that this shows him preparing to shoot webbing from his wrists again.

How much you want to bet Spider-Man has a much ballyhooed return to the original red and blue right about the time SM3 gears up for release?

This one was drawn by Bryan Hitch, who I'm not all that familiar with . . . regardless, it's crap. I'm not renewing my subscription if this is permanent. He looks like some kid took an old action figure, melted random pieces of it with a lighter, and then dipped it in a vat of molten jello. Utter C R A P

In fact, it was so good, I think we should post another picture of it to counter act the craptacular Iron Spider.

it won't last, tho... i've been enjoying spidey lately, it's a lot better than it was... i dropped out around the ben reilly fiasco (i liked the costume, just not the whole clone... thing), then came back and they had killed of mj and it was shit, and now that i've been reading for about a year, i gotta say it's better than it's been...

except for that... awful... gwen stacey/norman osborne.... thing... THEY SULLIED HER MEMORY!!!

this costume won't last more than a year.

That costume was great. About the only good thing to come out of the Clone Saga. Of course they ditched it.

Bryan Hitch is a very solid artist. The wandering ankle confuses me, as his anatomy is usually strong. He's probably trying to ape the super-distorted figures seen in Spider-books these last 15 or so years.

It's still uber-XXXTreme edgy! I say get Warren Ellis on board now. This design is perfect for him. They just need to put spidey in a trenchcoat with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, and stubble somehow poking through the mask!

That'll get the kids on board! And Warren Ellis, a 40 year old balding man, knows what the kids want!

So Spider-Man now has stingers that come out of his wrist/arms? I haven't seen any pics of this, but it sounds to me like Marvel finally found a way to literally put Wolverine in everything...apparently even Spidey.

in the latest issue of amazing, he discovers some new powers when looking for a lost girl under a collapsed building.

<SPOILERS>

- he can see in the dark
- he can feel vibrations through his webbing
- he puts the girl on his back, and she sticks to him like a spider carrying it's young.

</SPOILERS>
