hate the black costume? I mean, just really not like that look for Spidey at all?
You really make too many threads
And no I never hated it.
I love it
Never hated it.
And its true CW, you make HUNDREDS of threads, the hype stopped counting them after you'd made 500...
Well if I made a thread every time I asked a question the boards'd be clogged up mate.
If I can fit a question into an existing thread I do, but not if it's completely irrelevant to the topic at hand; kinda like this is.
You could have stuck it in the Iron Spider thread or the other hundred costume threads.
Black costume rules!
Iron Spidey drools.
I love the black costume as much as I love the red and black costume...and that is slightly more than an obese child loves bakery goods
Uh...the black costume OWNS. Period.
I was buying Spidey comics when the Black costume was introduced, and while I didn't hate it, I didn't think it was the right look for Spidey and was glad that he went back to his red'n blues about 6 issues later.
Though when he wore the black suit that the Black Cat made for him, it was a rough 3 years that followed... because Spidey is iconic enough that you should never change his looks, same as Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman. There can be temporary costumes for the sake of a story, but never anything permanent.
Amazing Spider-Man #301 had a sweet, sweet long-awaited cover... in my opinion.
Yeah....When I think "Spidey", I think "Red & Blue". The Black suit still owns, though.
I agree that I don't think it's the right 'look' for Spidey, but the black costume represents something more than what it is: it represents the golden age of Spider-Man, IMO. The stories written in that time are what I consider to be his best.
Those Were Some Good Stories, I'll Give You That. And No Other Period Has Had As Many Consistently Good Spidey Stories Since.
"Next person who says 'iconic' gets a big helpin' of BOOMSTICK!"
It's funny... the pre-black costume era was the Roger Stern run, arguably the third best run in ASM history (behind Stan's & Marv Wolfman's), yet the Tom Defalco era, which was basically the black costume time, was pretty decent. I wouldn't say "great", but really decent.
I will admit that Spidey's writers haven't been all that good in nearly 20 years.
What Are Some Of The Highlights From Stern's Run?
My god... the creation of the HobGoblin, the epic battle between Spidey & the Juggernaut, the kid who collected Spider-Man, the long-awaited return of Mary Jane (she was absent from the book for about 5 years prior to his writing her back in... she took off after Peter proposed to her the first time), some great insights on the origin of the Vulture, a great story involving the original Tarantula, Will'O the Wisp & that evil corporation, Brand, another one with Cobra & Mr.Hyde...
It's all good!
I love Army of Darkness...it's so Iconic
I could definitely see someone saying the black suit doesn't fit with Spider-Man, but still, it's an awesome design.
Oh, boy. You're right. Those are all gems. Now the Cobra & Hyde-is that the one where Hyde was p.o.'d at Cobra & spent half the book w/his hand webbed to Cobra?
Yeah... Spidey tosses Cobra to Hyde, and Hyde's hand is gooped up with webbing attached to Cobra's head.
Now see, here I'm forced to agree with you. That was some great storytelling, & while there's been good stuff here & there, nothing has been that good in a while.
Who wrote the return of the burglar?
Gee that sounds familiar. And I completely agree
