    I haven't seen the film but from the reviews I'm surprised there is a lot of enjoying and praising that Spider-Man is amateurish, screws up often, even is bumbling. When/how often in the early comics was Spider-Man portrayed as screwing up or coming off as amateurish? He was owned and belittled by Dr. Octopus and maybe Sandman but that seems more like them being of a higher league than Spider-Man being amateurish. And I think he rarely made mistakes/big mistakes while in the costume (let alone have those mistakes come off as comical).

    Or is this more consistent with his personality and portrayal in some later issues? And/or do you think it is a change for the better at least with regard to a modern film?

    Edit: Also, in the early comics was he portrayed as hyper? I don't believe he was but this also gets a lot of praise.

    It's more about Peter being rash and in over his head that rings true to the earlier issues

    MCU Peter is not a literal 1:1 translation from the comics but the general spirit of the character rings true.
    Also when Ditko was working on the book, Peter was kind of ******* sometimes and that's not something I ever cared for despite me liking a lot of those early issues.

    From watching the movie I could maybe see Peter believably being so inept as Spider-Man if he had been him for just two to four months, not two months after having done enough well enough to impress Tony and have him recruit him.
