So they took out the red bar on his arms that connected his gloves and shoulders so that it'd look more like the dumb Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon? And they put in more angles to show that he's ANGRIER! And they changed the "spider" logo on the back to make it MORE AGGRESSIVE without actually making it look like a spider?

I don't know if I agree with any of this. I admit that I do like the change from blue to black, though I always did enjoy it when Mike McKone drew it as such anyway.

Also, I'm confused by the fact that he apparently needs toe claws and talons, as if he needs them to climb on walls now. So... that's either completely redundant or completely against one of the things about Spider-Man that makes him Spider-Man.

This is actually a repackage and slight repaint of the figure that was released for Iron Man 2. The old one didn't have paint on the eyes of the mask, which looked a bit weird. It's a cool figure, but I kinda wish they had made a new sculpt for the Mark VII armor.

Why is his head so small?

Cameron Stewart's artwork is always a pleasure to look at.

I'm curious, though, about the context for Brett Booth's Red Robin redesign up there. Was that an unused design for the New 52, or a new redesign to replace his current outfit, or what?

The Return of Gwen Stacy.

Do it.

After Sins Past wasn't retconned!? Gwen must never return until SP is retconned NEVER!

I thought that the retconning of Sins Past was implied with bringing back Gwen Stacy. I completely agree with both of you.

you can't deny that the reprint for the JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 cover by Jim Lee isn't really pretty.

That double negative there reads like you're saying that the cover isn't really pretty. It should say "you can't deny that the reprint for the JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 cover by Jim Lee is really pretty."

really dude? I think most of understood what she meant, that is just a douche thing to point out.

I apologize if it came off as douchey; that was not my intention. I, too, understood what it meant, but the original wording still confused me when I read it, so I figured I'd point it out. It's fixed now, though, so everything is hunky-dory.

Because you are a jerk, Hope Summers.

Everyone's a jerk in Avengers vs. X-Men.

I think Storm is the only character who has been written well throughout this entire event.

she wasn't written well.

I'd have to agree. The dissolution of the Black Panther/Storm marriage was one of the most stupid and badly-handled things that happened in the storyline. Both of them came out of that looking rather idiotic.

What's with the weird garter?

It's for her sword, I think. I'm not sure if it's usually there or if it appears magically, though.
