[COMIC COMPARISON]: Spidey's relationship with the Avengers-- MCU vs. Comic!
(For those of you who have followed me long enough, you've seen something like this before. However I feel like I need to highlight these key differences, so I can have a post like this secured on my new account, and to alert the new followers. Anyways, getting into it...) -
[MCU Spider-Man]~ I'm sure you're all very aware of MCU Spidey's relationship with the Avengers, but here's a recap: Long story short, it's basically the end all be all to him. Having idolized these heroes, Peter jumped at his first chance to prove himself to become an Avenger. This is what Spider-Man: Homecoming is centered around. Now making his school life, acedemics, and friends his second priority, Peter focuses all his time into proving himself to be an Avenger-- sneaking out of the house whenever he can, and sending countless hoards of text messages to Happy Hogan about when his next mission will be. Being an Avenger is everything to him. At the end of the movie he decides he wants to stay on the ground a little longer, but this was retconned half a movie later when he officially becomes a member. -
[COMIC SPIDER-MAN]~ Unlike the MCU version, comic Spidey never exactly relished the idea of being on the Avengers, as he is physichologically tested as a loner, and wasn't exactly the best team player. He thinks being on a team puts a major cramp in his style. However, even though he has stated that being an Avenger would have as much setbacks as it would benefits, he has been known to try them out when he's in a real stretch for money. Like in ASMA #3 , when he reluctantly joined what he deemed "the glory hounds", so that he could have the money to support his Aunt May. If course this didn't work out, but he tried it again a few years later in Avengers #236 -237, when he needed money to pay Black Cat's medical bills, and support himself as he dropped out of grad school. Long story short he was rejected by the government, which he deemed for the best anyway, becuase he hated following orders, and never actually DID, and stated it was a stupid idea in the first place.
Finished the first trade of Rick Remenders take on Venom, i wished the would have used it for the movie. The trailer was very meh.. Really dont know what way they wanna go with Venom, he is great as a villain but there is no spidey in the movie. Will they make him a badguy? Or some sort of goog versus bad, i really dont know. And after the trailer i dont really give a damn. I said it before and will say it again. For good comic stories, always go for the comics.
Now as excited for this game as I am, I can't help but notice a few problems regarding Spider-Man's character interactions, and dynamics between certain groups of people. Particularly his relationship with New Yorker's. Now this is going to sound very nitpicky, but that's becuase it is. I'm a big Spider-Man fan, and can't help but point out the littlest flaw in the details. Anyway, in the new Spider-Man PS4 open world trailer released today, we get to see our first look at J. Jonah Jameson, starring in his talk show 'Just The Facts.' The issue I take in this, lies with how ALL the New Yorkers seem to be on Spider-Man's side-- supporting his crusade, and only Jameson is made out to be some delusional crackpot. Not to say that he isn't, but part of what makes the dynamic between Spidey and New Yorkers interesting, is that they are very easily manipulated against spidey. They've always been known to fear him as a whole, and I'm not getting that vibe. One would probably say that they've gotten used to him as time went on, but in the comics they never really did all that much. Still very easily manipulated. Besides, I just think it would've been more fun to have New Yorkers rant on you from the streets below, run away, or even try to attack you, to which spidey would reply with a smart was remark, sort of like in SM 2 game. Would've been more fun than just high fiving people. But again, I want to make it clear that the game hasn't come out yet, so these are more worries than valid criticisms. I've heard rumors that citizens can attack you with shotguns. Plus if they had it wrong before, I'm hoping they'd have their chance to fix it when Osborn declares Spider-Man "an enemy of the people."
