Best Spidey story arc ever?

#1 Posted by Metal Head (112 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't believe there isn't a thread yet for your favorite Spider-Man story arcs. I've got a few to help get things rolling:

  1. Death of Jean DeWollf.

The Sin Eater saga was quite the departure from happy-go-lucky Spidey tales and it was refreshing to see how shocked and realistic Peter responded to the death of his friend.

  1. Kraven's Last Hunt

Mike Zeck's artwork helped bring this multi-title crossover together. Somewhat silly overall idea but executed quite well. Sad little tale.

  1. Spider-Man vs. Wolverine one-shot

Weird one-shot that revealed the Hobgoblin's origin (which was soon changed). Again, Spidey's wayyy out of his element. But great interaction between him and Wolvie.

  1. Roger Stern's Amazing Spider-Man run.

Tons of great stories in his run on Spidey in the early 200s I believe. One of my favs is the two-part "Nothing Stops the Juggernaut". Good good stuff.

So what else am I missing? (And if anyone says the "Clone Saga," I'll clock you. Yes, that means you, G-Man!)

I guess I'll just keep quiet.

But another of my favorites is the whole Hobgoblin saga. I loved that. Is he Flash Thompson? Is he Lance Bannon? Is he J Jonah Jameson? That was a good one. Just because he started working out and carrying around a gym bag.

But since you mentioned the clone saga, the Scarlet Spider was mentioned in Thunderbolts. Supposedly someone is running around using that name. It was mentioned to Osborn. Ben is not dead!!!!

It's just an individual issue and it isn't quite my favorite but I have to mention Spectacular Spider-Man #200

#6 Posted by Metal Head (112 posts) - - Show Bio

was that the Harry Osborn issue with his family? I think it had a holographic cover?

Yeah, the death of Harry, I just really liked the issue.

I think the best Spider-Man story arc is death of jean dewolffe cus it featured the isane sin eater

I don't think the clone saga was as bad as everyone says. I quite liked the whole Aunt May finding out/ Morlun as a recent story. Am I alone in thinking that John Romita Jr. is overrated though?

Personally, I like the Spidey adventures where he's taken out of his element and has to adjust to fighting enemies who would ordinarily ruin Parker.

Fer instance...

Marvel Team Up with Thing, during the second Thanos War. It was up to Spidey and Thing to rescue the Avengers who were trapped by Thanos on a Spaceship!! Totally out of his element there, and quite a good read.

Also, Spider-Man #17 where he faces Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet and Mistress Death! Another great read.

While in his own element... I've always been impressed with the Kraven: Last Hunt storyline. Left for dead and being impresonated by Kraven? Brilliant!

Kraven's Last Hunt is cool, and The Death of Gwen Stacey is shocking. I just wish the Green Goblin would have stayed dead.

  1. Death of Gwen Stacy

  2. Maximum Carnage

  3. Creating of Venom

  4. Kraven's Last Hunt

  5. Morlun Story

  6. Back In Black (Amazing)

Oh, btw, I think Todd Mcfarlane drew the best MJ and Spider-Man not Peter. But Strascynki is a good writer.

Did Romita Jr. do those Juggernaut covers? I thought that he was younger than that...

I´ll go with these stories: 1.-Kraven´s Last Hunt, because it gave Kraven the respect he needed as a regular villain in Spider-Man. 2.-Who killed Jean De Wolff? He works with Daredevil,(one of my favorite superheroes).For the first time, it was an adult storyline for spidey, and finds out that Matt Murdock is Daredevil, creating a solid friednship with Hornhead.Not to mention the way he reacted towards the death of his friend. 3.- The Night Gwen Stacy died. It was a shocker on it´s time, something never seen. Before that, superheroes were like untouchable, nothing bad ever happened to them. This storyline changed everything. 4.- Parallel lives. Although it was a graphic novel, it was very touching, and the idea of MJ knowing that peter was Spidey, was not a common situation, it took me by surprise, at least me. 5.- Back in Black. Spider-Man in all the sense of the word, economical problems, Aunt May dying, Spidey looking for the bad guy and kicking his butt, what else can i say?.
