Now,I'm not saying that neither character has had their struggles,dark moments,blah,blah,blah-but if you start with that "grim" tone,you lose much of the core character.
They are origin stories. They are all about introducing the characters.
TASM had humour throughout the film were MOS did not have any where near as much.
