John Dunbar (the mod of maple) replied to Captain Comics's discussion Peter Parker, Clark Kent question
"The DB was much sleazier than the Bugle.  Peter went from taking crime photos to being a celeb chasing paparazzi, which didn't sit well with him.  He refused to give Bennett pictures of Mary Jane and an actor she was dating, and…"

John Dunbar (the mod of maple) replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Len Wein
"Heartbreaking.  He wrote and edited so many things I enjoyed; from the time I first started reading comics in 1979, his was a familiar name.  May he rest in peace."

"Usually up to now, Spidey's super strength is not played up.  But I will point out that in ASM #1, Spidey ripped the door off of a helicopter to get to the Chameleon, and later on in a tussle with the FF, he was manhandling the Thing,…"

"We'll just have to agree to disagree here.  In my opinion, the spider-sense warns him of danger, without deciding how immediate it is."

"As Randy said, why not?  In his first appearance, Peter invented his web-shooters.  Not too long afterward, he invented the spider-tracer.  He's an off the charts genius frankly."

"Ditko may have intended for the Enforcers to be cannon fodder or just the Goblin's test of Spidey. Their going to be the Goblin's right-hand men in the underworld takeover may have been something Stan put in the text on his own."

"It may have been Stan and Steve's intention to show the Goblin could make a mistake but also quickly learn from it.  Most other villains keep repeating their mistakes and keep going back to jail."

Hey John. How've you been?

Hello John,

I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.

However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.

You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.

Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.

With all respect and best wishes,

Philip
