That was my favorite career Peter was in. However, I would love for him to be a Chemistry/Biology professor at Empire State University.

Gwen seemed bland more than idealistic. That was my takeaway reading through her ASM#31-#121 run. MJ seems to challenge yet compliment Peter.

In Renew Your Vows, Peter recently became a school teacher again, but he teaches photography rather than science, and he's depicted as a fish out of water in that regard due to the fact every student can take photos on smart devices. It'll be fun to see if they can make it work this time, especially with the added wrinkle of trying not to humiliate his daughter

The only books that seem to be relaunching right now are Avengers, Black Panther and Venom. So they are keeping with the Legacy stuff, except starting fresh with the books that either already released a movie this year or have one in the pipeline.
Apparently Cap will be relaunched with a new number one in June, with Coates taking over.

It's not the darkness that bothers me so much as the fact that a lot of the ideas were really just silly or head shakers. Sins Past was bad, but that's one storyline. The entire run basically revolved around/led up to the Spider Totem nonsense, which is probably the bigger eye roller. At least they've seemed mostly content to pretend Sins Past didn't happen, but I don't think we're ever completely escaping the totem.
Yeah, legendary artist Ron Frenz almost refused to illustrate a short story featuring Gwen unless Sins Past was not directly referenced, and the Spider-Totem got a mention in the previous issue of ASM (and informed a lot of the drama in Spider-Verse)

I never really got into comics.

Too convoluted. To big a cog machine. No real end goal on where these characters will go or will wind up.

As for Marvel....I will never understand why they went full SJW with those books in the first place. Why change what worked for 50 years, just to pander to an audience that was created and is only around for a few years at best?

What they found out is that SJW's don't support the things that they help create and once they alienate their long term fan base, it's all over for them. Ghostbusters found that out the hard way last year. Star wars is FAST finding this out as it slowly becomes a dying brand. The toy sales are already non existent. and once the general public finds out there is no real end game for the movies other than crank them out one year at a time, I feel like their interest will fade fast too.

IMHO, the genie is already out of the bottle and it's too late to put it back. They took a chance, and lost the gamble, and everything will suffer because of it.

Then you have things like marvel writers and creators attacking fans left and right, simply because they don't like their books.... some going so far to organizing campaigns against them and..

yeah, the current state of comics is a crap storm.

As much as I hate to see people loose jobs....it's best to just implode the whole thing, let it rest for a few years... and then come back and start fresh. focus on story. focus on end game. focus on 5 year plans. focus on NEW characters. focus on making the old ones shine again. Talent and creativity first.

that's what it needs to get back too before it's too late.

Personally, as far as the new relaunch goes, my only stake is that "All-New Wolverine" is getting canceled and replaced with a new "X-23" series. As interesting as the new series sounds, I'm wary about X-23 getting demoted from a position she earned. Hope the new series is good.

The movies are different and do have an end game. Otherwise we'd see Cap fighting Red Skull for the 10th time right now.
