I hope it turns out as a temporary thing, and that he'll later become more of an ally that works with Spidey semi-often than a sidekick. Spider-Man with a sidekick just doesn't sound right. I'm actually looking forward to seeing how this goes though.

tsss, copycat.

@Dernman: God.....there are no words......I hope this is temporary. How many times has Pete tried to talk kids out of becoming what he is and now he suddenly takes on a sidekick!? Nah screw that it better be temporary!

#5 Posted by X35 (5981 posts) - - Show Bio

if it's only one story arc, no problem with this

if it's "permanent" this is pretty lame

also every word used to describe the kid reminds me the network executives talking about poochie in the simpsons

the depths of lameness. marvel has had only 1 good sidekick bucky. this is really stupid. what? are they trying to appeal to a younger demographic? cuz spider-man is so old? if the punk starts making fun that peters old, im ripping the comic to shredds.

This but I'm slightly more edgy about Spidey's new sidekick. I think this could either work out well or crash and burn. And I'm not liking Ramos being back. Why can't Caselli or Camuncoli stay as regulars instead of Ramos?

Heh I actually had those thoughts myself. Also really hope this has nothing to do with 700. 
Something dumb like Spider-Man loses his powers and decides to be his Bruce Wayne ala Batman Beyond. I would drop the title.

Is it a coincidence that his name is Andy Macguire? Andy--short for Andrew Garfield. Macguire--sounds awfully similar like Toby Maguire's last name.

But yeah, sounds good, but I still can't believe they're afraid of aging the character by marriage, but give him a teenage sidekick which will probably only accentuate his age.

@oraclefyre: That's a good catch. Maybe that is the inspiration for it.
#13 Posted by Strider92 (16263 posts) - - Show Bio

@oraclefyre: Good catch I noticed the Macguire part but hadn't noticed the Andrew one. It wouldn't surprise me if this was the case.

I'm betting this character is getting introduced for the sole purpose of getting killed and making Spidey feel all 'uncle ben' style guilty.

I don't want to take that bet. One of my many many ideas that are running wild about what's going to happen in 700 has to do with crushing guilt. Between his tech being used for bad, Sable dying, and something most likely bad happening to Hope when she takes "responsibility" of the phoenix. That totally could happen.

That's so lame, lol.

#18 Edited by Strider92 (16263 posts) - - Show Bio

@Dernman: Yeah guild really seems to be the theme at the moment. Maybe the kid will die and Peter will kill the his killer. I believe its being hinted at the Spider-man is getting more violent. Don't think they would kill the new character off that quick though.

@Strider92: Which would bring about that Darker Spider-Man from the future. What ever happened to that storyline? Did it get retconed? 
They one where he was wearing the jacket made by the villain's tailor.
#22 Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale (10180 posts) - - Show Bio

lol Okay.

#23 Posted by Strider92 (16263 posts) - - Show Bio

@Dernman: No it just hasn't happened. Its already been prevented from happening twice. Once by Spider-man and once by Julia Carpenter so its safe to say if he does cross the line then that'll probably cause the spiral.

#24 Posted by Dernman (14957 posts) - - Show Bio
@Strider92: Good anyway I'm hoping Peter's future is more along the lines of what Cable said it would be. That has been hinted at more often in the past than anything.
#25 Posted by Morpheus_ (29873 posts) - - Show Bio
I find it hilarious that in the double-page spread during Grim Hunt which outlines that potential future, Spider-Man is dismissed from the Avengers for killing -- in a panel with Wolverine pointing the finger to show him out. 
 
LOL, wut.

Yeah lol hypocrite much?

By the way has everything that appeared in Madame Webb's vision in ASM 600 happened yet? I checked it out again and I can't find where Electro decking the building, Spider-woman getting attacked or Spider-man kissing that masked woman happened. Has it still yet to happen or did I miss something?

I like this idea. I mean what else can you do to Sider-Man that hasn't been done. I think if handled right, this could be an interesting direction.

That would be the worst thing to happen to Spider-Man since OMIT/OMD.

I don't think it will be. Very shortly she will be in her Captain Marvel costume which doesn't have the mask. Black Cat also has the mask but is that blond or white hair?

@Dernman: Well to me that looks pretty damn blond lol. Maybe the artist did the wrong color?

@ChaosMarvel: Oh and I found the scan you where talking about with Carol and Pete. Captain Marvel sure is in a lot of Spider-man titles at the moment -.o

Well when this was printed Marvel may not have thought of making her into Captain Marvel. That issue is quite old. I'm pretty sure that's not Black Cat as the hair isn't white its blond.

They are giving Spidey a sidekick now?? Why didn't they do this like twenty or thirty years ago??
 
Oh right. The people at Marvel actually had ideas back then.

Well who else could it be? I don't know many characters with a black eye-mask, gloves and blond hair:

This illustration was initially planned by a different writer before Dan Slott was made full time writer for Spider-Man. Since Dan Slott is opposed to the idea of Peter Parker being in a relationship with a super heroine, the potential development of Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel relationship was scrapped. I am glad that it wasn't developed in that direction because it wouldn't have turned out very well if Slott was writing their relationship. Besides, I think that Peter x Carol relationship should stay at the pals level as to provide an even level playing field to include Silver Sable, Spider-Woman, Black Widow, She-Hulk, Psylocke, and Black Cat. The list of heroines gives a different writer a choice as to which one(The heroine who has feelings for Peter Parker) to pick for his story. Thus, the writer is not restricted to a heroine that he doesn't like if he wants to use an alternate to the Black Cat.

This method will insure that no one will standout as Peter's potential girlfriend without upsetting the others. Even if anyone of them are in a personal relationship of their own.
