- They taught me about the importance of justice
- Peter Parker was the first fictional character I ever wished was real (and wanted to marry)
- They feature some of the best villains in comic book history
- The artwork is fantastic and iconic and wonderful
- Stan Lee is one of a pair of writers who provided me with an imagination and a moral compass (also noteworthy: J.K Rowling.)
- Where is Gwen Stacy, who was Peter Parker's first true love and who is the basis for so much of the content of his character?
- Where are Spidey's homemade web-slingers?
- Why is this guy so happy-go-lucky?
- Where's his sarcastic sense of humour and clever wit?
- Where are those god-awful and hilarious catchphrases that littered Stan Lee's pages?
Even when the trailer for TAS was released (actually, even now, four months after its release) people were still fucking complaining about how Sony were 'replacing the real Spiderman' and how they were fucking up the storyline and 'Who the fuck is Andrew Garfield, anyway?' as if he wasn't a fantastically talented actor, and damn well suited to the role.
THESE PEOPLE ARE INFURIATING.
Basically, what I'm getting at is that, with great power comes great responsibility, and if someone's going to make a Spiderman movie, they need to do it with fairly significant reference to the original comic book canon.
