You guys DO realize DeFalco subtly retconned this Mayday as being an alternate universe double right?

Really? I didn't notice!

Can you say where/how exactly he did it?

It's very subtle. She refers to her brother as Benny instead of Benjy, which she always does in the actual Spider-Girl comics. She also calls herself "The Spider-Girl" in the opening narration instead of "The Daughter of Spider-man," which is what she always calls herself in the opening of Spider-Girl issues. Then the closing narration implies that the Mayday we "know" is still safe in her universe with her family.

@kivatt: Yes. You could replace all of her word balloons with: "I am terrible" and nothing would be changed.

Yep. And it's hilarious and well deserved as Slott has done a completely terrible job with her character. I'm honestly considering buying this book twice for that.

Spider-man should take this.

Scarlet Spiders #3 had a pretty decent brawl with Ben, Kaine, and Jess fighting against a continually respawning Jennix.

Really enjoyed this issue. I guess the art isn't for everyone, but I really like it. It was just a really fun issue all in all.

Well, I can tell what wasn't a good battle. Leopardon vs. Solus. So disappointing.

@deadcool_xd: He gets shot at all the time, guns have zero effect on him at all

in actuality the actual sound should harm him as do the bells in the spiderman movie. Him beng shot and hearing the sound is just the lack of attention and research given by the writers. O and by the way deadpool has sonic weapons.

I don't think Venom's ever been beaten by bells in the comics (AKA applicable here unlike the movies). I think in you're next statement your claiming that him being fine around guns is WIS? No, it's not, as it's happened consistently. Sonics are different from gunshots, and the sonics Wade has have to be awfully powerful considering Venom could take sonic blasts from Iron Man and not flinch.

unlike movies you say, well I actually own his first appearance spiderman #300 and that is where the movie is from. venom gets weakened by the sound of the bells. And to prove I'm not bluffing-

If you really knew your characters, you'd know that Venom was not defeated by a ringing bell in that issue.

What's more, David Michelinie, co-creator of Venom, has penned several issues in which Venom was capable of tanking shots from Sonic Guns designed by Reed Richards, so clearly, Venom's sonic resistance gets better over time.

Maybe you should base your opinions on characters on more than just one 30 year old issue.

I really don't know why everyone is saying clears it I think he can't get past 3-4

I don't know about kate but Cass can't even hurt venom let alone beat him.

guys just clear this up for me, are we talking about venom alone as a symbiote? Or are we using eddie brock as venom or Thompson. If it's the symbiote alone it loses really quickly, If it's brock he gets very far, but if it is agent venom as Thompson like in the picture I don't see him getting far, the guy is stupid.

Be honest. How much of Flash Venom have you read?

"Those were the stories that were already told in the comics"

Yeah. Remember when Vulture worked for Oscorp? Or when Sandman and Rhino were friends before they were super villains? Or when Tombstone was the big crime boss of the city? Or when Norman Osborn used Harry as a decoy for his Green Goblin identity? Oh wait. Literally none of that happened in the comics.

And it's funny that he brings that up as a negative, when Ultimate Spider-man straight up adapted that two-parter by Bendis where Peter and Wolverine switched bodies.

So let's see that makes that guy: 1. factually incorrect. 2. hypocritical and 3. incapable of making a show that isn't pure garbage.

That's really cool. Good to know that the creators are as idiotic and crappy as their terrible show.
