How I would write the black-suited Spiderman arc into the MCU:

This is the 3rd movie in the series by the way. Regardless of who the main villain is in the movie, Peter comes across the symbiote, which attaches to him in order to form the black Spiderman suit. 

Now, Peter’s main arc for this movie is that he feels that he’s not enough and that he doesn’t have enough in his life. He’s jealous that Ned still has his parents, he’s jealous of Harry Osborn (introduced in the 2nd one) and all of his wealth, and he feels that despite being an Avenger, he wants to do more. He compares himself to heroes like Black Panther, Iron Man and Captain America and decides that he no longer wants to be the ‘little guy’. 

So what the black suit represents is the horrors of addiction. When he first uses the black Spiderman suit, Peter gets what he wants. He feels stronger in the suit and is able to do more than he could with his old suit. It starts out harmless enough. But the addiction grows and grows and the movie subtly shows how it starts to affect Peter’s social life. For example:

1) He pushes K.A.R.E.N. away and eventually retires the old suit, deciding that he no longer needs her because all he needs is Venom.

2) He lashes out at Ned for simple screw-ups (roid rage?), leading to Ned staying away from Peter since he becomes afraid of him.

3) He lashes out at Michelle for her seemingly uncaring attitude. Of course, she does care for him and we get solid character development for her since she’s the only one of his friends who stays by his side. I was thinking that the movie can insert a backstory where MJ recognized the signs of addiction since she has a family member or friend who abused drugs. 

4) He beats up Flash Thompson, leading to his first ever suspension.

5) He insults each member of the academic decathlon team when they try to stage an intervention.

6) Finally, he lashes out at Aunt May when she calls him out on his behavior. The final straw is when Peter says something along the lines of, “You and Ben were never my parents! The only thing Ben has in common with my dad is that they’re both dead!” Obviously, this breaks both May and Peter, leading to Pete exiling himself.

Michelle sticks with him and together, they get rid of the Venom suit. There’s then a montage where Peter suffers withdrawal symptoms and Michelle helps him through the process. He emerges stronger than ever and eventually apologizes to all of his friends and May. 

Then we get the final battle with whoever the main villain is (I want it to be the Green Goblin since we have Harry Osborn but that’s just me). Peter defeats him without the black suit and learns to appreciate life better.

Of course, the symbiote comes back at the very end and attaches itself to Eddie Brock, Jr., leading to Spiderman 4 where the main villain is Venom.

Can I get two things straight please.

Recently I heard a certain..boisterous shall we say Spider-Man fan make two statements that boiled down to

a)      Ben Reilly was a carbon copy of Peter as evidenced by his sacrificing his life for him in Revelations


b)      Doc Ock is probably Spider-Man’s greatest nemesis because he killed Peter in Superior.

Here’s why one statement is illogical as a criticism and the other is straight up bullshit.

So starting off with the first one, Ben was not merely a carbon copy of Peter. But yes in sacrificing his life for Peter in Revelations he  did something Peter would’ve done.

And that was the fucking point.

Ben Reilly, whilst believing himself to be the real Peter Parker and Peter a clone of him, a clone who’d lived 5 years of what should have been Ben’s life, willingly gave up his life to save Peter.

He made a heroic sacrifice, the kind of which Peter has been willing to make countless times.

Only he wasn’t the real Peter Parker, he was a clone.

The point being that the nature of his birth was irrelevant. He was as much of a person and as much of a hero as Peter was, making the fundamental point of the Clone Saga that how you live your life is more important than where you come from.

As for the Superior thing, I’ve said this multiple times before (although this particular Spider-Man fan refuses to listen) but Otto neither killed Peter nor is he his greatest foe.

Call me crazy but surely Spider-Man’s greatest villain should be the most VILLAINOUS person to him personally, since the series is you know…about his life.

I get how you might argue that taking over his body would be the worst thing to ever happen to someone so that villain should take the crown.

But as should be bloody obvious to anyone who’s read enough Spider-Man, peter cares much more about others than he does himself. The suffering of innocent people, let alone his friends and family is all much more important to him than any pain and suffering visited upon himself.

So we have Doc Ock taking over his body vs say, Norman Osborn killing Gwen Stacy, faking Harry’s death, faking Aunt May’s death, convincing him he’s a clone, rendering Flash Thompson brain damaged, maybe killing his kid, killing Ben Reilly, causing emotional pain for his wife and also literally torturing him for over a week with trippy drugs to turn him into his son…and sending him out to attack his friends whilst doing that. And then Peter has to live with that crap afterwards, in particular having to live with the pain of losing his loved ones.


Hmmmm, I wonder which MIGHT be worse from Peter’s point of view????????????


Yeah…Otto doesn’t even come close to the top spot, even if he did kill peter.

Which by the way, he didn’t.

Despite reading and commenting upon stories which make this point explicitly clear, this particular Spider-Man fan continues to act as though Doc ock killed Spider-Man in ASM #700 when that never happened. The Peter who died in otto’s body was a copy of Peter’s mind, not the real deal. The real deal remained in his own body, hence Ghost peter and so forth.


Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. If somebody said it was a happy little tale… if somebody told you I was just your average ordinary guy, not a care in the world… somebody lied.


On this day 20 Years ago Spider-Man and his wife regained their greatest enemy and lost their brother and child.

It was a heartbreaking story but a nevertheless powerful one.

I salute Revelations on it’s 20th anniversary.
