Spider-man 700 WTF Most Horrible idea ever

Posted by Blackestnight (640 posts) - - Show Bio

SPOILER below Not really cause you wont want to keep Reading Spider-man after what was done anyway.

Spider-man 700 was the worst idea and writing I have ever seen. Killing off Doc Octopus would have been enough of an event. Allowing an enemy to kill Spider-man and run off with his life, girl, memories, etc was worst thing one could do to a Spider-man fan. The Theme of Justice is what is attractive about comics. Dan Slott just flipped it all backwards. I am glad he enjoys his negative attention. He just took a shit on the work of Stan Lee and many other who built a character over so many years. I won't be reading the re-launch. I don't acknowledge anything Dan Slott has written. I hope a fan based Spiderman 701 is written to replace the Bullshit of Slott. The way it happened didn't even make sense. Peter would have phoned MJ and the Fantastic 4 Avengers ASAP to tell them what had happened. Someone like Dr. Strange or any mind reading Xmen could have verified it.

If you looked further, you'd know that Peter isn't really dead.

... Bit late to the party, huh?

Regardless, I agree with some of your points, though I disagree with the venom. Frankly, it could have been handled better, especially if the goal was to motivate Spidey to be better, and live up to his potential. There are lots of ways to make an interesting story of Peter becoming a Superior Spider-Man, and while this was certainly one way to do it, it's not one I approve of.

Now that said, Superior IS actually a fairly decent read thus far. I'm not liking how much of a douchebag Otto is, but it's interesting.

Its already been established what a horrible idea this is. Slott is a terrible writer and SSM is garbage.

Personally I enjoy Superior. If it was any other villain besides Doc Ock, it would be terrible. Doc Ock is similar to Peter in a lot of way though. They both are good with science, both were awkward nerds that were bullied in high school, both had glasses, the main difference between them is that Doc Ock didn't have an Uncle Ben or an Aunt May. By getting Peter's memories, he felt the good life Peter had, and swore to become a good guy. Secondly, Doc Ock isn't with MJ anymore. He ended that because he felt it was wrong. Thirdly, an event where Doc Ock died is not enough, since that event happened before. You know what the worst thing to do to a Spider-Man fan is? OMD. Sins Past. Clone Saga. Those three are so much worse than Superior.

As much as I hate this new situation, I'm really enjoying its aftermath in Superior Spider-Man.

Superior is one of my favourite story arcs, because I know PETER'S GOING TO RETURN sooner or later (I mean really, what are the odds he won't?), so I am just enjoying the ride. The main reason I like it is, because it is something unusual and unordinary and offers something different.

@JimTheSurfer: I've read somewhere that Slott said he has a master plan for Peter's victorious comeback. Having this said, I don't like the SSM project, but I do find Yost's Avenging Spiderman pretty interesting giving some good material for the future. Nevertheless, the way Marvel treated fans, the way Slott trolled, the whole process, everything was insulting to Stan Lee, to Marvel's flag - Spiderman - and to us, the fans. I hope Yost takes over after Slott.

I love the SSM book and think it's been fare beyond entertaining. I like it and would be fine with peter sitting on the shelf for a while.

@Blackestnight: According to Slott, evil gets rewarded when good men fail to stop it.

What happens if two evil guys fight each other? Do they both get rewarded? I can only hope the Green Goblin shows Ock the true Spider-Man experience.

Its a new direction and pretty good, while obviously temporary, story. Oops, I mean its the end of life as we know it and we should all torch-and-pitchfork Dan Slott. Because thats clearly the only appropriate reaction to a story thats only 4 issues in....

I'm loving the Superior Spider-Man run. At times, it's a bit creepy, especially when Ock deals with the ladies. I mean, did anyone see the preview of #5?

I'm also looking forward to seeing how Ock handles Massacre.

Oh right, always forget how stickily this site is. Soz!

@JimTheSurfer: Comics aren't real life and used to be escapism from all the actual injustice. Something to inspire what ought to be. Spider-man has also been the lighter side of things. Having some old man creep up on the ladies is just disturbing. The way he went to Avengers Tower rather than just phoning them, how he didn't bother to contact MJ or anyone else, it just didn't make any sense. I'm late on the party because I order my comics from Japan and wait until there are a lot so I can save on shipping.

This.
I don't understand all the nerd rage, it's a good story. Spider-Man loses to one of his worst enemies and is forced to watch him take his place. It's a new version of Peter Parker: This is Your Life or Its a Wonderful Life. The coolest part will be seeing what happens when Peter gets his body and life back.

If everything would be nice and fluffy, then it wouldn't be interesting anymore. I think Dying Wish is a great storyline. Something new, fresh, interesating. I personally love seeing Doc Ock to struggle with his new life being a superhero, trying to be good, but still having the old arrogant personality.People like you hate it just because bad guys win and it brings change into comics. And don't worry - Peter will be back. So just sit back and try to enjoy this storyline, while it lasts.

@Humanoid:

Also, does anyone think that MJ is a totally sh*t f*cking love interest?

I blame the writers...

Its really just embarassing when we don't even give them a chance. Half the comments state that they aren't even going to read a single issue. Like, are you kidding me?
