>Spider-Man basically bitchslaps the Kingpin into a state of almost certain death.
Why can't we have moments like this in Spider-Man stories, /co/?
Daredevil is a really good martial artist who can tell how you're going to move by listening to your muscles and bone and hearing the air move around you
Spider-Man can tear steel apart with his bear hands and can avoid danger through limited precognition
Because then they wouldn't be special.
The point of those moments is because they stand out from typical Spidey.
If he always did them, how would we know if shit was real or not?
That was retarded. Only spiderfags like that shit, us rational people not so much.
Yep, but most people here won't see it that way because Spider-Man is apparently a god among street levelers.
I was being ironic, neither of them has super strength. Spidey does, tho. And even though Kingpin managed to bear hug really hard once, Spidey can literally hold the entire collapsing Bugle building.
I'm glad that serious mode Spider-Man is a rare thing. The alternative is for it to become as much of a cliche as serious mode Superman, and I can no longer get excited about that shit because it is too played out
I love how at least 3 of Spider Man's top moments (well, good/memorable moments) throughout history have been him basically holding up really heavy things. Peter Parker has always felt like he needs to be able to do anything and save everyone and when he's unable to do that it destroys him mentally and emotionally. I've always appreciated the whole "weight of the world on his shoulders" kind of moments that he gets from time to time.
Saying all that as a lead in to the question: what are some of Spider Man's greatest feats of strength? And also who are some of the strongest people whose asses he's kicked?
I was looking into that the other month. I'll post some of my findings.
onbiously some should be taken with a grain of salt
do you mean when Spider-Man was captain universe? Because that only lasted like two issues and Peter had a blatantly different blue and white outfit during it
I was under the impression that Spidey had Strength Class 15 (can OFFICIALLY lift 15 tons, in practice is a whole other story) but held himself back to not cripple the people he beat up.
gettin real sick of these connection errors
Unfortunately that's kind of become shorthand for "I need a dramatic spidey bit and I am a lazy writer".
I get it, he held up something heavy that one time in Secret Wars and it was really neat. Wish they'd stop using it so often.
after all these years the impression I've gotten is that Spider Strength has nothing to do with muscles, and instead a 'push force' counterpart to his 'pull force' wallcrawling.
It does put strain on his muscles, sure, but exerting his spider strength has more in common with exerting his spider-sense compared to most people with super strength.
That is to say, since it's a supernatural power rather than one tied to his physical body, the limits on it are only theoretic. There is no hard answer
I love the imagery of the spent web cartridges falling like bullet shells
There's no consistency to this stuff. Too much time and too many writers and too many different circumstances that influence how strong he is both positively and negatively.
But about 15 tons is generally how I tend to think of him too. And yeah, he absolutely holds back a lot because he cares about not hurting or crippling people. Anyone arguing that Spider Man shouldn't be able to slap Kingpin around doesn't know what the hell they're talking about. (Unless it's 60s Kingpin when he first appeared and was initially portrayed as being as strong/stronger than Spider Man. But that was the 60s and Peter was still a teenager and it wasn't long before they decided to ship Kingpin over to Daredevil. But yeah, modern Spider Man >>>>>>> Kingpin)
now for some good old fashioned spider-man schooling
Wolverine has a bad habit of resorting to lethal measures with little provocation
Has Kingpin ever punched Al Gore in the face?
Didn't think so.
Kingpin has nothing on Spider Man.
(Actually, that's a lie. Kingpin has money. So much more money.)
I'm having a very hard time getting excited at all about Civil War on account of No Spider Man.
(And also just the scope of the thing. Instead of being an actual civil war, it feels like a glorified bar fight.)
Wait, there is? I thought Marvel still didn't have the copyrights to both Spider Man and X Men for film and TV.
Spider Man obviously has more movies about him than any other Marvel character, but it's too bad that they're all about him being solo. I'd love to be able to see him in action as one of the Avengers. (Bonus points if Wolverine is there. Mainly because who doesn't want to see Peter throw Logan out of a window in Tony's penthouse?)
have you been living under a rock? sony and marvel made a deal or something. Sony gets a new franchise series but marvel can use the actor and character in movies (or something). this happened months ago
I love it when he invoked the predator part of the spider
still pissed we never got a proper look at his post apocalyptic tribe of bugmen
Frank a shit
Is every Spidey writer obligated to attempt to recreate this scene?
Lemme guess: after that moment Kingpin still lives and continues to operate as a drug pushing, human trafficking, murderous mob boss, right?
>who can tell how you're going to move by listening to your muscles and bone and hearing the air move around you
No, he can tell by how your heart beats a bit faster when you are about to make a move.
For example he can't dodge a bullet, but he knows you are about to fire at him before you do, which is barely enough time to dodge, or hit the bullet with his sticks.
Marvel vs The Punisher
basically Marvel Zombies but with a virus that turned people into bloodthirsty cannibals without the whole undead thing. Spider-Man is Zero as in 'patient zero'
>I was under the impression that Spidey had Strength Class 15 (can OFFICIALLY lift 15 tons, in practice is a whole other story) but held himself back to not cripple the people he beat up.
It used to be class 10, then bumped to 20 after the Other storyline, I dunno what his current power class is.
But yeah, he is holding back non stop. There was a Wolverine crossover, where a suicidal spy (hunted by the KGB and CIA) sneaked up on him, and Spidey thought it was Wolverine and hit back accordingly - and killed the woman on the spot.
after that moment Peter went and made a deal with Mephisto and everything that Peter did since right before asking MJ to marry him never happened because Quesada is a big baby and JMS was powerless to stop him.
isn't that the event that in one continuity lead to Spider-Assassin?
One More Day happened.
But had it not, Peter said that he would fill Kingpin's lungs with webbings and kill him, also the story ends with Kingpin crawling like a bitch to his cell.
>and look at them. My admiring audience...my adoring public!
Oh, shit. This is reminding me of that one Spider-Man issue where he's talking to Uncle Ben, imagining the conversation and it's making this scene much more powerful for me.
End of Spiderman 2 was fucking great. What a great movie. Also relevant to>>77910088
Great Mary Jane
Great Aunt May
God tier JJJ
currently Kingpin is completely out of the picture and Spider-Man, despite his "relatively" low personal income, runs one of the most influential companies in the world (making gear for the Avengers )
so you're wrong
Also an iconic moment.
The fact that Kingpin is even a threat to Parker on a physical level in Lee and Ditko/Romita run is bullshit and that's coming from someone who likes that run.
Here's something from the very first issue of his run not counting Amazing Fantasy 15.
>Spidey trapping Juggernaut here, and the subsequent trauma of Juggernaut spending over a month digging himself out was one of the most pivotal moments towards Juggernaut's character development for the next decade or so, all the way up to Thunderbolts and Fear Itself with Juggernaut's resulting claustrophobia
No he's not saying he wants a dark Spider-Man he's saying he wants a powerful one. Peter can't get through an issue of Slott's run anymore without assistance from a gadget or another character. Peter is a power house with a TON of experience, he doesn't need help every fucking issue!
Why couldn't we get Stern again instead of Slott?
There's a fine line between masturbating while you look out a window, and masturbating while you're looking in a window. I'll give you a hint: one of 'em is super illegal.
We are posting SpiderMad? those moments are great.
Spider-Sense reacts to what Peter considers 'bad'. It's been known to go off when someone is about to discover his identity, when people nearby are in trouble, and when someone dangerous is simply nearby
I wish they made a Jugg monthly. I'm not talking about the Thunderbolts, I'm talking about a pure Jugg only comic. I'd buy it.
His heart is also apart of the badass moments.
