I've decided to take what's happening to Felicia with a huge dose of optimism. If this is the way things will be going for her, then I want Black Cat to be huge in terms of villainy. The more evil, the better. Make her strong, make her be one of the most vicious enemies of Spider-Man and make this last.
If you put it like that ("with a huge dose of optimism") then yeah sure.....
I guess it depends on how she's written in that role, but it would always bother me that if she does go down that path Slott had to destroy her relationship with Spider-man as well as what made her likeable in the first place.
I've read every Spider-Man title since 1974. I paid for every single issue and for the most part the stories were well written and occasionally there were a few stinkers.
Most if not all pre Slott writers understood the character of Peter Parker.
Slott's Spider-Man isn't fresh. It's insolent character derailment for the sake of creating controversy. The dialogue is simplistic and the ugly Ramos artwork, even at it's best, is still hard to gaze upon.
I have not spent a single dime on Slott's Spider-Man since the deplorable ASM # 700. I have however read SSM and the current ASM for free thanks to my cousin and the very cool folks at my local comic book shop. All I can say is I'm glad I haven't wasted my money.
Using sales to defend a book is fallacious. Quantity of sales does not automatically equate to quality. IMO, Dan Slott has been the worst Spider-Man writer to date.
