The Superior Spider-man vs Amazing Spider-man DEBATE


After deciding to use the Marvel Now initiative as an excuse to get back into comic books I fell in love with the Superior Spider-man title. It's got everything I love except one thing... Peter Parker. The real Peter Parker. As a child of the 90's I loved the Fox Kids animated series and when I read the books back in the day I always imagined the character with that vocal inflection, something Toby Miguire can never take away from me.

Note: if you have no idea what I'm talking about here's a summary of the first 5 books.

Beyond that though, I found myself just enjoying the character of Peter just as much as Spider-man. But this new Spider-Man, the Superior one makes it difficult for me to hold the same level of fanfare. Don't get me wrong, the writing is excellent, but I've come to both adore and detest the edgier Spider-man. As such I was inspired to make a video in which I argued with myself on this very subject.

I thought it'd be a fun way to engage others and ultimately ask, which Spider-man is truly superior? One with a firm balance or one that's efficient but deadly?

Let's discuss.
