or the greatest tv game show

10

The #FIDMMuseum in L.A. had a great exhibit featuring designs from period & contemporary TV shows on last summer. They displayed costumes from some of the greatest shows during ~peak tv~ and gave insight into the costume designers vision. Being so close to outfits faves have worn is seriously mind blowing - check out the FIDM’s website for current exhibits or jut stop by the gift shop for dope AF souvenirs!

I’m Guy Fieri and we’re rolling out, looking for the greatest diners, drive-ins, and dives at the end of the universe.

There are 42 flavors in Flavortown.

So that whole ‘Spider-Man is about youth’ thing

I know some people place a shitton of stock into the words of the professionals so let me just throw a few things at you.


Peter David is one of, possibly the, most accomplished writer under Marvel’s employ in terms of the breadth and acclaim garnered by his bibliography. This includes the critically acclaimed Death of Jean DeWolff storyline and the fan favourite Spider-Man 2099 series, which is about a very much ADULT character who is the Spider-Man of his timeline. He doesn’t think Spider-Man is about youth or that there is anything wrong with him being married. In fact he stated that the series as a whole spinning its wheels from the time of the Master Planner Trilogy up until the marriage when something really different happened. He began reading Spider-Man at some point before the original publication of Amazing Spider-Man #100 back in the early 1970s.

J.M. DeMatteis has written both critically acclaimed Spider-Man stories and stories which are the most layered and dense in terms of their theme and depth of human psychology. This has included the iconic Kraven’s Last Hunt. He also does not think Spider-Man is about youth or that he should not be married. In fact he made the marriage a vital part of his most revered storyline and utilized it a lot in his various other stories. He began reading Spider-Man at some point during the original John Romita Senior run of Spider-Man.

Tom DeFalco is former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel comics, former editor of Spider-Man, has written a very well regarded and vitally important run of Amazing Spider-Man in the 1980s and followed that up with two more runs (on Spectacular and Amazing Spider-Man) in the 1990s before embarking on a near (unbroken) 150 issue long run on fan favourite Spider-Girl. The latter by the way is currently the longest running (at least without substantial gaps) Spider-Man spin-off character and also the female Marvel character who’s had the most consistently longest running solo title ever.

 He is also the author of the well reviewed 2001 book ‘Spider-Man the Ultimate Guide’ which was for it’s time the single most comprehensive information book about Spider-Man ever published. During his tenure as writer of Amazing Spider-Man he and Ron Frenz he established Mary Jane Watson as knowing Spider-Man’s secret identity and introduced readers to Spidey’s black costume, later establishing it as an alien symbiote. These and other elements from his run have made their way into other media and been constants in the Spider-Man series ever since.

Tom DeFalco has inferred on more than one occasion that his favourite era of Spider-Man was when Spider-Man was in High School. This makes a certain amount of sense because he first began reading Spider-Man in the early 1960s…specifically with Amazing Fantasy #15.

But did you know that Tom DeFalco ALSO doesn’t think Spider-Man is about youth. In fact he once specifically said Spider-Man isn’t about youth but responsibility, going on to say that the more responsibility Spider-Man has the more interesting the character is. When Spider-Man was originally married in the 1980s Tom DeFalco was against it…at first. He then changed his mind and became one of its biggest champion among other Marvel creators. 

Tom DeFalco’s disbelief in the ideas that Spider-Man is about youth and that the marriage was antithetical to the character are evident in the fact that he proposed and implemented a storyline intended to make Spider-Man a parent and his creation of Spider-Girl (Peter Parker’s daughter) was partially done as a fulfillment of this idea.


Finally there is another Marvel creator to be discussed.

His name is Stan Lee.

Stan Lee is the co-creator  of Spider-Man. He also co-created the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, Ant-Man, the Wasp, the Avengers and many other Marvel characters and properties which have endured to this very day.

His Spider-Man credits include literally the first 100 issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Amazing Fantasy #15, and various Spider-Man annuals.

Within those issues are stories which are regarded as undeniably the most iconic in Spider-Man’s history and the unquestionably most adapted source material for various Spider-Man media adaptations.

They include:

The origin of the character adapted and referenced in…pretty much every film and TV show about the character

The Master Planner Trilogy, regarded by many as the greatest Spider-Man story of all time. It inspired parts of the Playstation game Spider-Man 2000 and an episode of the Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series, both of which were critically acclaimed.

Amazing Spider-Man #42 the introduction of Spider-Man’s most famous love interest Mary Jane, an introduction so iconic it’s been homaged, parodied and referenced ad infinitum and adapted into two different cartoon shows

Spider-Man No More which once again has been referenced numerous times in various comics and other media (Marvel affiliated or otherwise) due to how iconic it is and was the major inspiration for Spider-Man 2, regarded as the best Spider-Man film of all time as well as at the time one of the best superhero/comic book films of all time.

Stan Lee for a number of years also wrote the Amazing Spider-Man Newspaper Strip which has remained in syndication ever since.


Stan Lee has to my knowledge NEVER  claimed Spider-Man is about youth.

It was in Stan Lee’s run that Spider-Man AGED  to the point where he graduated high school and attended college. 

In a letters page Stan Lee in response to a statement about Spider-Man’s hypothetical child joked that the character wasn’t even married yet.

During Stan Lee’s run Peter Parker considered proposing to his girlfriend Betty Brant in only issue #30 of the series. Much later around issue #100 Peter was seriously considering marrying his girlfriend Gwen Stacy and was making plans for the sake of that future.

Stan Lee has gone on record numerous times that he created Gwen Stacy to be Peter’s ultimate love interest and because he believed she’d make the perfect wife for him.

Int he 1980s Stan Lee when asked by a fan if Peter and Mary Jane could get married opted to make that happen in the Newspaper strip and inquired about making it happen in the comics too.

Before the abolition of the marriage in the comics, Stan Lee in an interview was asked if he felt that Spider-Man being married in any way negatively affected the character. He didn’t feel that was the case.

After the marriage was abandoned in the main comics universe the newspaper strip did the same thing…temporarily. It eventually went back to featuring a married Spider-Man and has remained so ever since.


Now…call me crazy…but it seems to me that all of that would seem to possibly imply that maybe…just maybe…

SPIDER-MAN ISN’T SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT FUCKING YOUTH!!!!!!!!

  • “A man who won’t listen can’t hear.”
  • “Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.”

Are you implying that the Super Mario Bros. Super Show wasn’t the greatest video game adaptation of all time? With scenes like this?

Nonsense!

But in all seriousness, it does look promising!

Rules: Copy, Paste, Answer, and Tag 10 People When You’re Done!

What’s the story behind your username?
It’s a reference to an article in a Parks and Recreation tie-in book, Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America.

I was deep in Parks and Rec fandom when I started my Tumblr, and it remains my fav tv show of ever. I happen to like obscure insider references from time to time, so that’s why I picked this particular user name.

What’s your favorite scene or quote from a series/book you’re currently obsessed with?

I’m not really obsessed with anything at the moment, but I did really love the new sitcom The Good Place, which has many excellent quotes.

Jason was the character that gave me the biggest laughs. Here’s one of his best: “You should listen to me. I came up with hundreds of plans in my life and only one of them got me killed.”

Also i love the fake swearing on this show, so the main character Eleanor saying, “Holy mother-forking shirtballs” is a fav.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?
The united states government put considerable time and money into research and development of a “bat-bomb” during WW2, with the concept of packing hundreds of bats into a large bomb which would release them in low altitude over cities in Japan, and each bat would carry a tiny firebomb that would go off when the bats tried to roost in homes and buildings. Like, this is a real thing. They built prototypes and everything.

Name 3 of your pet peeves.

Strangers trying to make small talk with me in extremely noisy places when I’ve made it clear I’m having trouble hearing them.

when my kids don’t flush the toilet.

People who don’t use turn signals at four-way stops.

What are your favorite toppings on a pizza?
cheese. And I either like fancy-pants pizza like my current fav at a local place - thin sliced pears, fresh mozzerella, crushed pistachios, prosciutto, red onion and a balsamic glaze drizzle. Or I like obnoxious American pizza like ham and pineapple.

What are 3 things you like about yourself?
My patience

my ability to teach myself new skills using the internet (I’m a pretty good intermediate level knitter after just 2 years of using internet tutorials as my only teacher, and i’ve learned lots of other skills the same way)

my imagination

Favorite type of dessert or thing to treat yourself with?
Sweet baked goods in general, but especially if chocolate is involved.

What is your favorite scent?

Trees and grass after rain. Or fresh-baked bread.

Which fictional character would you cosplay as?

A Ghostbuster. And I have fantasies of making a steam-punk Maleficent costume, but my sewing skills need work and I don’t have the time.

What was the best piece of advice you were ever given?

Treat mental illness just like any other health problem - don’t be ashamed to get professional treatment and/or medication.

Share a gif that makes you laugh.
