>>78793743 Its literally part of his lore now, hes really fucking dumb and when he gets a smarter version of himself to help take over the multiverse he gets demoted to do grunt work even though it was his idea , because he's dumb.
I'd say that Spidey's villains are pretty much all where they belong, except Sandman just give him a fucking job and his kid back and he'd be fucking fine but NOOOOOOOOOO we gotta keep the status quo. I guess I can only hope they don't fuck him as hard as they did Rhino.
>>78796210 I get that he's a dumbo but it seems like with the powers he has he could easily wipe out a city block or two, like i just imagine even if while not being smart he'd still be a larger threat
>>78793743 Because his powers are the only interesting thing about him. He's a boring character, he doesn't have an interesting personality, backstory or motivation. He's just a dick. None of the stories he's been in are actually memorable. Writers would rather use more interesting villains even if their powers aren't as impressive.
>>78797576 Because John Byrne couldn't accept the idea that somebody who was on the FBI most wanted list could ever reform. He was under the impression that everyone on that list is a mass murderer or child abductor, ignoring the fact that in the 1960s it was different. So he made him a villain again, and to add insult to injury he tried to claim the Sandman had merely pretending to be good all along (at least they retconned that particular aspect).
>>78798600 That run was published around 1998-2001 at the time when not many people were reading comics. Clone Saga started in a time when sales were sliding but still very, very high, before the Marvel distribution fuckup and the bankruptcy. It's arguable that Clone Saga might've caused a lot of readers to bail midway through the story.
Storywise yes, I agree that the Byrne era did more damage than the Clone Saga actually did.
