"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…"
"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,…"
"The Spider-Writers regularly screwed up the logical way the Spider-Sense should work, that is to warn Spidey of any potential threat, even if from a supposed "friend" so that if anyone nearby was creeping up to thump him from behind with a…"
"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."
"The next day, Peter visits Betty Brant at the Daily Bugle. He's about to tell her about his trip when Jonah interrupts and tells Peter he is sending him to Hollywood to get photos from the movie set. Peter was hoping Jonah would do that, but…"
"Fantastic Four #26 was dated May 1964 and the Hulk was in New York City. AS-M #14 was dated July 1964 and the Hulk is in California, not New Mexico. There's a story there somewhere!
Sorry, Philip. Spidey met him in New Mexico, not…"
"From accounts I've read, although I forget the sources, Stan Lee's initial rough plot had the Green Goblin as an actual goblin, a supernatural creature. Ditko rebelled against that idea more explicitly than he did against the Spidey meets…"
"As far as the failing spider-sense, when Spidey first met the Green Goblin, there was no immediate threat. The Goblin wasn't going to attack him in New York City but days later in Hollywood. He was stringing Spidey along but at no point…"
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.
