Default Revamp the Spider titles

Ok what would you do?

No limits here.

I'd put Kirkman and Bagley on Amazing - that would be the lead Spider book set in current continuity.

Marvel Knights would become just Spider Man and Slotts and the guy doing MTU would be the team. This book would follow the lead of Amazing. If it happens in Amazing it would be reflected here. This is the second teir Spider book.

Freindly Neighborhood Spider Man would shift a bit to whatever Peter David wanted to do. Tell a story that fits between Amazing #5 and #6 - go for it. Tell a modern story with the New Avengers - fine. He wants to write about Black Suit Spidey - fine. Tell Spider Man: The End here - sure. Sort of a Legends of the Dark Knight but with a stable creative team. Continuity would be this series playground, but it wouldn't be hindered by it.

I can't argue with that. Kirkman and Bagley (or McKone, or maybe both alternating) on ASM is just what I would say. PAD and Wieringo doing FNSM as an "Untold Tales of Spider-Man" is ace.

Adjectiveless, I agree that Slott would be great for that title, but maybe with Patrick Zircher as the artist. He deserves to do more than just Cable/Deadpool.

You gotta have Kirkman, Bendis, and Millar sit down together and plot out what will happen to Spidey over the next 10 years or so. Even if they all aren't going to be around for it. They each get to have their own series to write which interweave dropping plot points here and there. Kirkman is great at this which he shows in Invincible. I could see Kirkman sticking out a 10 year run with Spidey. But what Marvel needs to do is start something huge that people will care about and want to see pan out.

I just thought of something. Wouldn't it be cool if the Spider-man: The End was the actual end. It could run for 10 years like I said above. It would run in the normal titles for awhile then all the pieces fall into place in a huge final battle. I'm just saying though, I don't want Spider-man to ever end.

The whole Cable/Deadpool art team is great. They are a great choice for adjectiveless. McKone would be a great Spider artist too. Of course if he alternated with Bagley, Bagley could do another entire series. I think he can do like 18 books a year. Unbelievable.

I really just can't see PAD's book as a "second" Spider book that's why I think the "Untold" approach would be a great format. Tell PAD anything in the Spider universe you want to do - go for it.

Id like to see Loeb's take on Spiderman. He can bring some of that Majesty he brought to S/B.

Getting rid of JMS would be good enough for me.
I cant stand his work on established mainstream characters.

I would second Slott on a spider-book though. But frankly Slott should be the one in Bendis's position as Marvel U architect imho.

For the first time in my life, I am uninterested in Spider-Man. I think if I had one wish, I'd like to see JMS leave or just have his vision diluted a little. Hindsight being 20-20, I haven't really enjoyed his work on the character.

honestly, i think he's been more of a detriment. so weird cause i got into B5. i haven't really liked anything he's done outside of Supreme Power.

Love to see Kurt Busiek on this book. His Untold Tales stories were wonderful.

I simply think he needs to fight his rogues again. The tradiotional ones. They bring out the best in Spider-Man. Just like the rogues do in Flash.

Though I miss the Daily Bugle, I don't think its necessary for Pete to return there. I think the fact that he's married should be reflected in his job situation as well. But I do want to see Pete build on his supporting cast now. He really doesn't have one anymore.

Surprisingly, I do like the fact that his identity is now known in the super-hero community. I'd like to see it explored more how Peter benefits from this, after being such a loner in the Marvel U.

Dan Slott absolutely should be writing a Spider-title.
