Would his book be better if he had villains who could actually challenge him and not get oneshotted by the Venom Blast?
>>
>>94485144
A little, but not by a lot. Issues with Miles go way beyond his OP powers.
>>
>>94485144
You can't maintain a series on a protagonist with no personality. It doesn't matter who your villains are.
>>
Trick question, Bendis would never write a villain who could withstand Venom Blast
>>
>>94485144
what is miles' personality? oh yeah, he has none?
>>
He would've been such a cool delinquent, but nope! Bendis is too shook to take chances with the black "characters" he writes.
>>
>Would his book be better if he had villains
That would be enough right there.

It's been what, 8 years now? What does his rogues gallery look like? The prowler? Fucking
>>
>>94485242
Prowler is a Peter villain/friend, doesn't count.

This. It would be a first step, but there would be a lot more that need to be taken as well.

I've heard it's that he's the calm guy.

The only way to improve Miles is to remove him from existence

That's literally all the characters who weren't made in this decade.

How long do you suppose till Marvel makes him get a new name?

His book would be better if it wasn't written by Bendis.

This. In one issue of Ms. Marvel, he was kind of a smug, competitive asshole. I liked that.

>Delinquent Miles
I didn't think I wanted that, it'd actually make him interesting
>Lives in a rough neighborhood
>Still book smart but constantly gets into fights because he doesn't fit in either blacks or hispanics
>A bit arrogant as he thinks he's too good for the school he goes to and skips constantly while maintaining decent grades
>After getting his powers he uses them for his own gain and becomes the toughest kid in school
>Becomes a Spider-Man after being inspired by Spider-Man and a desire to make his parents proud
>Tries his best to clean up the street but is a little rougher since he's learning his own strength
>Studies hard to get into a good school but held back by the constant fights
His fighting style should be different too, he should pick up anything he can get his hands on and use it as a weapon when dealing with super powered people but go barehanded when dealing with regular criminals.
>>
>>94485144
Man, I wish i can make villains for miles. I got a bunch of them in my head.
>>
>>94485695
I honestly don't think they will change his name. Not unless Bendis decides he wants it changed, which I can't see happening.
>>
>last issue was miles considering changing his hero name
>at the end of the arc, for the 100th time, we will reaffirm himself and say "I'm Spider-man"

>>94486394
This could have been a thing if the writer was black and not Bendis.
Oh wait
>>
>>94485319
Ultimate Prowler was Miles' uncle, the one that stole the Oscorp spider that bit him, and then Miles accidentally killed him with Venom Blast, I guess that was meant to be his "great powers, great responsibilities" moment and a good point to have him restrain the use of venom blast but nothing much came of it before the Ultimate Universe was retconned out of existence, Miles was clumsily stitched into 616 and now I don't know what the fuck his canon is anymore

I get what they were going for and it was the 90's, but a wannabe gangsta costume is such a bad look
>>

I meant because it's just a spandex suit and a hat. Shit, his iconic look is just a better decal on the suit, a coat, a distinct mask and goggles.
>>
>>94487431
How many times has Miles doubted himself? It seems like it happens at least once an arc.
>>
>>94485144
Miles has a few problems. Many are because of Bendis writing him.
>Venom Blast
Idk how anyone thought giving him a new power that is OP as fuck with zero downsides was a good idea. Like he could literally do that all the time. The only reason I assume he doesn't is because either other writers think it's a cop out move or Bendis just decides he won't use it for no reason. Marvel needs to take this power away. Miles Cloaking ability is good enough.
>Bendis Writing
The have shown that other writers can write Miles better. It's time to move on.
>Keep him away from Peter
I feel like they've already done every mentor story they could with Peter. Everytime the put them together, Peter comes up with some dumb reason to be disappointed with Miles and say that letting him be Spider-Man was a mistake. Move miles away from Peter for a few years and let the character grow.
>He goes to a school for smart kids so treat him like he's smart
Did every writer forget that Miles is gifted? The Ms. Marvel writer didn't forget when she had Khan and Morales go at it for the school science fair. But Miles have never used that brain of his. Parker sucked ad school, but that's because he was busy saving people. Parker used his Brain in fights to win. So why is Miles so dumb then? He hasn't really thought of smart ways to use his powers on his own. It's really upsetting.
>Miles' Parents
Idk how I feel about this one. Miles mom dying was a big deal and made the character have to grow. I liked the strain between him and his Dad that got mended. It was an interesting take on the Spider-Man and his guardian trope. But they've fucked it up by bring his mom back. That was a huge mistake. Killing her again would be dumb so...idk what they should do.
>>
>>94487678
>Idk how anyone thought giving him a new power that is OP as fuck with zero downsides was a good idea. Like he could literally do that all the time
This wouldn't be so bad if Miles got really tired after using it. It's some sort of electric or nervous shock, it has to come from somewhere
>>
>>94485144
Gwenpool is challenging him so hard his life was ruined! :D

I wish his venom blast was Stamina based. Like if he used venom blast once, it will drain his energy.
>>
>>94487678
>>94487809
>>94487895
they should also remove his spider-sense because it's not like Bendis uses it, keep the invisibility instead
>>
I always thought they should have left him as a kid. He became a lot less interesting when they aged him up.
>>
>>94487928
That too! It was a bad decision to allow him to be a teenager. It make him look like a manchild like peter parker.
>>
>>94487809
>>94487895
Logic would dictate it should be.
>>94487919
Holy shit you're right. I don't remember the last time Miles used is Spider-Sense
>>
>>94485189
>Bendis would never write a villain who could withstand

Are you ready for the storm of rage that's coming here when Miles one-shots Hobgoblin with the venom blast?
>>
>>94487678
>Idk how anyone thought giving him a new power that is OP as fuck with zero downsides was a good idea.

Bendis can't write an ending without a weak and contrived Deus Ex Machina. He built an instant ending button into Miles to use as a rip cord for when he writes himself into a corner.

>Miles' Parents
That's my biggest peeve about the new run.

His fucking mom came back to life. Why isn't he spending more time with her? Why isn't he more concerned about her well-being? Shouldn't he be trying to keep an eye on her so that something like Venom doesn't happen to her again?
>>
>>94485189
Double-trick question!

Bendis can't write villains at all.

i thought his vb did drain him when he used it but he only uses it at the tail end of a fight
I just straight up hate how inconstant his blast is
he doesn't have to make skin contact it can pass through through the air and through symbiote some times it's a delayed reaction other times it is immediate it's called a venom but it's drawn like electricity

Secret Empire.

i knew it couldnt be Bendis

>>94488292
that's definitely not how venom blast works, unless you count Super Saiyan Miles
>>
>>94488292
This panel was written by someone who heard about Miles' powers second hand. Marvel and Editors are like oil and water.
>>
>>94488633
May be the artist's fault too. Miles is Zap-a-dee-doo-dah, zap-a-dee-ay the shit out of that control panel but I bet he's supposed to be touching it. Writer must have written it too ambiguously like "Miles zaps this thing"

>>94488701
>but I bet he's supposed to be touching i
Nah. He can touch the ground and the electricity will travel through the ground towards the person.

I wish bendis (or other better writers) explain his powers more.

It is like a x-men effect, miles could be a walking venom blast in the next issue.
>>
>>94488117
When's miles fighting hobgoblin?
>>
>>94487650
When he was in Ultimate he stopped being Spider-man after his mom died and he was 12. However he was 12. That ain't self-doubt that's just realizing your fucking 12.
>>
>>94487085
It's gonna be Slott's Silk level of creepy.
You know Bendis only wrote that because he thinks it's hot to have a girl so in love with you she'll castrate you with a coat hanger
Not that that isn't hot, but imagine a fat fuck like Bendis thinking about it. What do you think he's doing while he write a yandere character?
>>
>>94488829
He does it to Peter when they first meet in the Spidermen crossover, If I'm remembering right
>>
>>94488998
wasn't that on the spider-web and not the floor?
>>
>>94488958
I don't think he is sexual repress like slott, and i kind of interest in a yandere villain bombshell. Yandere villains are always interested. Look at venom.
>>
>>94489019
Yeah I think so, but it's the same basic concept, isn't it? He can shock people without having to touch them.

I don't have anything against Yanderes, but I hate it's gonna be Bombshell.
She hasn't gotten a good storyline since she joined Peter died, and had potential to be the cool rebel chick who doesn't care about the rules.
>>
>>94488958
>Miles is 12
Man, I'm 100% sure they threw that out the window because it made no since after a while. He didn't act 12 and should have been 15.
>>
Miles' relationships with his supporting cast are fucking awful and boring as shit because they are all great people that support each other yet are entirely capable on their own.

What makes Peter Parker an interesting character is that he has to navigate a web of lies while attempting to maintain his relationships with people who have their own flaws (May is frustratingly frail and dependent, MJ is flighty and has no time for Pete's bullshit, Harry is a dick). They should have had Miles' mom come back but someone in his family should have had something happen to them that at least sets up some kind of dynamic that Miles can feel anything other than generic support for. Cripple/infirm someone, make someone an asshole, whatever.
>>
>>94488929

He's going to be part of a Sinister Six team in the upcoming Marvel Legacy issues of Miles' book.
>>
>>94488958
>>94489183
He was 14 actually
>>
>>94489213
Better...not good enough to make out with Gwen Stack but...idk. This is weird guys.

I really find it so funny that behind all the Miles' criticism, there's genuine care for the character to be good.
Ultimate Spider-man used to be great. I miss it.
>>
>>94489331
>there's genuine care for the character to be good.
Show me evidence of this. All I see are repetitive claims that Miles has "potential".
>>
>>94489381
that's what I meant
>>
>>94489331

Love them or hate them, Miles and Riri aren't going anywhere so long as Bendis is at Marvel.

The best possible outcome is for them to develop into interesting characters who carve out their own unique identities, don't have all their victories handed to them by a boring instant-win power, and don't constantly have other superheroes telling them how special and important they are. But all of that would require getting them away from Bendis.
>>
>>94489331
It's crazy because the Man writing it never changed so wtf happened? Was it that he had to interact with other writers?

>>94489381
I really like the character and idea. It's pointless because he's in the main universe where Parker is alive.
>>
>>94489381
This he has potential but they just don't seem to be trying hell even though he's being trained by Peter kid still needs his best friend to make web fluid for him I'm

I don't know if Bendis having to bend (heh) to the editorial so much during the original Miles' run made Bendis not care, or he is scared to give Miles a strong personality, or he just got really damn lazy because he's doing like 6 books to keep afloat his family of 6.

it would be better if they actually addressed the whole "my whole universe and everyone in it is dead and my mom is alive again"

y'know, since it was recently revealed that apparently he remembers all of it.

Everyone who didn't get "Deaded" in Secret Wars remembers. It's just no one cares to bring it up.

When will you learn
>>
>>94489179
Literally every character has potential, and since this is Marvel you're better off complaining about what they did do instead of didn't do because potential goes to Marvel to die.
