doc ock spidey


Mike, Matt, Vincent, and Dan all discuss Spider-Man for a while. How we got into the character, our favorite stories, favorite artists. A bit of history of course. There are a few fun edits and some technical difficulties. So a fun ride all around.

Yeah, that sounds just stupid enough to be right. Let’s go.

I am tired of this Marvel movie trope where the bad guy has the same powers as the hero. The Hulk fought the Abomination, who is just a bad Hulk. Spider-Man fights Venom, who is just a bad Spider-Man. Iron Man fights Ironmonger, a bad Iron Man. Yawn. I want more films where the hero and the villain have wildly different powers. That makes the action much more interesting.
—  George RR Martin, after saying that Ant-Man is his favorite Marvel film, after Spider-man 2.  

… Touché.
