TimesSquareSpidey2What is it about the Big Apple and street performers dressing up as Spider-Man?

Just when you thought you heard the last of the Times Square “superheroes” getting in trouble with the law, we have yet another altercation involving a wannabe Spidey. This time around, though, “Spidey” decided to join forces with a wannabe Batman. Only this time it wasn’t up against The Joker and Carnage but rather a passer-by who, thanks to having a bit too much to drink, decided it’d be a great idea to make fun of them and pick a fight.  As reported by CBS:

The NYPD told the station two men – one dressed as Batman and another dressed as Spider-Man – were arrested Saturday night for getting into a fight with another man in Times Square. Police said the fight started on 44th Street and Broadway after Thomas Rorke, 23, heckled the men portraying the costumed characters.

Jose Martinez, 41, who was dressed as Batman and 35-year-old Abdel Elkahezai, who was dressed as Spider-Man, were all charged along with Rorke with misdemeanor assault, the station reports.

Rorke, a Queens resident, was struck multiple times in the face by the comic book heroes, according to authorities. He sustained injuries to his face and was also hit in the chest. Martinez and Elkahezai said they were also punched in the incident.

However, The Huffington Post, along with The New York Post, went into further detail as to what allegedly happened:

ASM2014006-DC11-LR-68109“What in the world are you doing?! This isn’t like you!”

So when we last left off, Spidey team-uped with Silk in more ways than one, and was about to have his secret identity revealed on live television all over again thanks to the Black Cat. I guess it’s not much of a spoiler that the next thing Spidey doesn’t say is “My name is Peter Parker, and I’ve been Spider-Man since I was fifteen years old.”

making! You didn’t demand it? Well somebody did.

DitkoletterSpider-Man Co-Creator Steve Ditko recently wrote back to Spider-Fan Marvin Hoover. Hoover wanted to get Ditko’s opinion about Marvel “stealing Spider-Man from him over the years.” Ditko wrote him back last month with this hand written note. He recently posted the letter in the Ditko Facebook Fan page.

“I know more than I’m allowed to say right now,” Garfield told us.

Sinister-Six_612x381“I can say I’m really excited about Drew Goddard, who’s going to be writing and directing The Sinister Six movie. And whether I’m involved in that or not is kind of immaterial.”

“I don’t know if I should say anything right now. But Drew is really exciting. Did you see Cabin in the Woods? Did you like it?”

“Exactly,” Garfield said with a grin. “Hence, me not telling you s— about that.”


“Human, Inhuman. . . there’s no difference. Just people. . . and people that need blasting!”

I return with my regular avatars to talk about the history of the Peter Parker from Mutant X. The Man-Spider.

It seems Spidey was in serious need of a Slurpee and all the money in a cash register at a Clearwater, Florida 7-11. 

AXISHOBG2014003cov-94986Comic Book Resources just released an interview with Axis: Hobgoblin Kevin Shinick on what his series will be about. Thanks to the events of Axis an event by the Red Skull known as the Inversion sets both the heroes and villains on different paths. Like Luke Cage wanting to be profit for the Heroes for Hire Business, Carnage tries to be Spider-Man, Tony Stak returns to his weapons designer days in Superior Iron Man. For our good buddy, Roderick Kingsley he decides to make average joes, super heroes the same way he has been outfitting average joes as super villain the last year.

Yes, after the big “Inversion” Hobgoblin is now working for the good guys. But the way I see it, it’s not like he’s had a big change of heart and his moral compass is completely different. It’s just that, again, like any good businessman, he sees an opportunity to branch out into a new market. It’s like Belloq says to Indiana Jones, “You and I are very much alike. Archeology is our religion. Our methods have not differed as much as you pretend. It would take only a nudge to make you like me.” Replace the word “archeology” with the word “business” and I think that’s a conversation Kingsley could’ve had with himself to justify making a go at being a good guy. Especially if it’s profitable. The feeling of renewal is something that keeps coming up when I’m writing this. Obviously, Kingsley is having a renewed sense of purpose, but it also goes beyond that and affects a lot of people in his orbit. Now that Kingsley’s a good guy, he’s going to be using the same business plan he used to revitalize old villains, only this time he’s making a go at revitalizing old superheroes as well. And why not? At one point, someone even points out that the market for people wanting to be superheroes is a lot larger than those willing to risk being a villain.

You can read about the entire interview and the rest of the interview at CBR.

Thoughts on all of this?
