Could work. Pretty much agree with everything you said. That said, I'm still hesitant in regards to Gwen. I'd definitely avoid retreating anything we've seen with her before, so I'd opt to go the route of punk Gwen from the Ultimate line should we see her again. Absolute no to death of the Stacys in any fashion. Do not care if some think they need to redo it because it wasn't "the way it should be". They were adapted and quite memorable in the eyes of the casual audience (which matter most). If people complained about seeing an origin story, they'd certainly complain about seeing the death of the Stacys adapted again (also to anything Goblin related). Let some new life shine through this series when it comes to Spidey's storylines. There are MANY to choose from and going back to the oldies just because some are considered classics (with all due respect to those) is not just the same 'ol same 'ol but it leaves the impression that Spidey's world isn't as deep as its made out to be. Edit: If they plan to adapt the Sinister Six again, let it happen organically this time around please. Raimi's series never had the chance for a Sinister Six because most of the villains were killed off. Webb's series could've done the Sinister Six properly, but they rushed into it far too quickly causing the disappointment that was TASM2 overall. I absolutely love the Sinister Six (very happy to own the Premiere hardcover) and feel that they're the best course of action now that Spider-Man is MCU bound, as he doesn't have to fight 'em alone, so I want to see them done right.
