Hey guys. My good friend octopedingenue (brownie points if you get the reference) were talking about Peter on AIM, and we stumbled into a rather interesting area of discussion (important part bolded):

me: Peter is such an amazing character in all incarnations
octopedingenue: he has to be my favorite fictional character, ever
me: he's bratty and creepy and occasionally iconoclastic, but also the closest thing the Marvel universe has to a saint.
octopedingenue: and he's competing with, like, Shakespeare and Jane Austen and stuff here...
me: yes, me too!
octopedingenue: YES re: above statement
me: hmm. I think I should quote this convo to the dailybugle and see what kind of thoughts we can get

So, like I said in the convo, anyone have thoughts to contribute? To clarify on what I was talking about, once you get to know the Marvel comics universe ... well, there are tons of good people amongst the superheroes. Arguably, none of them took on their heroing careers with quite the same degree of selflessness, and none of them have martyred themselves to the extent Peter does. The FF are rich celebrities, and became superheroes in part because it was better than being freaks, the X-men are trying to win respect for their subspecies and all live off of Xavier's fortune anyway, Daredevil has lots of money and a great non-superhero career, and the Avengers are all kind of a mess anyway, at least as a whole. Peter, meanwhile, has sacrificed several relationships, the integrity of his college career, his Phd and potentially revolutionary career in the sciences, at least one extremely worthwhile job, his mental health ... And though he complains to himself, he doesn't really seem to think walking away from it all is a real option. It's a little terrifying, honestly. So I was just wondering.

Hey guys! Cool to see that this community has taken off so well!

I missed out on the seventh (and final, aaargh) issue of Ultimate Six. >_< Haven't had a chance to get to Brisbane and find out if the comic shop still has it. Can someone fill me in on how everything wrapped up? Thanks! :)

Also, what did you guys think of Spidey 2? There was so much that was GOOD about it, it's probably more accurate to ask: was there anything you DIDN'T like about it? ;)

I'm Wicked, and I find the fact that there is a GOOD Spidey community quite awesome. So, I joined you. :)

I really really liked the new Spidey movie. Aside from some corny parts, it was very good. It was kind of a pain going to see it with people who had never read the comic books, however. Maybe you all can understand. I kept trying to point things out and I just got blank looks. The LIZARD! for crying out loud.


I did read the comics, though a long while ago, so if I need reminding about certain things, be patient. So, I'll think about the funniest Spidey moment I've encountered.

Well, bye!

Just thought every one would like to know that the new issue of Amazing Spider-Man is out. As is Ultimate Six part 6. You know, it's the Ultimate version of the Sinester Six? I knew you'd remember that...

I get to ask the frist question! [Jan. 26th, 2004|05:10 pm]

So, I'll ask the question...How do you think Spider-Man 2 will do when it comes out. I'm thinking that it'll do better than the first, but I have to admit that with the group of comic book movies that came out and tanked (Hulk, Daredevil, and LXG) I'm getting a little worried. But I still beleve it'll do big numbers.
