You ever gonna continue the quantum marvel series? Maybe with characters like the X-Men or Daredevil.
Hey Andrew! I had an opinion question for you based on your work/interpretations of the Spiderman mythos/legacy.
Well, I kinda have this belief that those who take over the mantle of Spider-man (Miles, Mayday, Miguel) should learn about Power and Responsibility in their own way but similar to how Peter did (through personal tragedies of their own) as opposed from learning it from Peter himself. And Aside from Spider-Gwen (and I'm not 100% sure she counts), I haven't seen this necessarily happen with some of the new bearers of the Spider-mantle.
I'm curios that - if you feel the same way - how do the Miles, Mayday and Miguel of your incarnation learn about Power and Responsibility?
I see what you’re saying. I don’t believe that an understanding of power and responsibility always comes directly from tragedy. Often, it can come from something as simple as other people who serve as great examples of power and responsibility in our lives, or even just the things we witness.
My take is that Mayday is gung-ho to follow in her father’s footsteps and believes she understands the notion that with great power comes great responsibility, but her desire to rush into danger demonstrates that she doesn’t understand responsibility at all. Not only does she endanger herself, but she endangers those around her. Seeing others get hurt is a wake up call. It makes her more reserved and it prompts her to seek guidance when she isn’t ready.
Conversely, Miles is hesitant. When he gets his powers, he hides them from everyone. His father and his uncle are both impulsive people, charging into danger for opposite reasons; civic duty or personal profit. Miles’ wake up call is when he sees what happens when he doesn’t get involved, the damage and the hurt inaction leads to.
