    uh yeah. this is radical writing.
    now as for Spidercide and his bizarre design, not so much. Like I get it, he's an evil clone of peter, so he gets the reversed colors, but.. then the mask is still red, and it has a mouth. who wanted that? the Jackal is weird and dumb. Kaine is way cooler.

      I have no idea what the FRICK they were doing with Jackal. Like even if he is a clone he acts nothing like the original Warren. This is like when they replaced Toyman with some kid but then wanted everyone to think it's the same dude.

    Yeah jmd made spidercide based last year thus fixing the weakest thing about this story (outside of jackal but he's always been lame)

    Frick you all. If they did the clone saga today it would be treated with the same revulsion as Miles and Spider Gwen and Silk.

      The clone saga was treated with massive revulsion. But everything since being significantly worse has made people revisit its better stuff (the defalco and jmd stuff really).

      Also you know marvel threw it under the bus they act as if those 3 are super popular and anyone who crticises it is a piece of shit.

    No one said the writing was any good. There are dialogue balloons that appear to be saying something but amount to nothing no matter how many times you reread them. But I have a solution. Get someone to read every single line of dialogue and figure out how to make it work. How to make it sound like each character is really saying whatever they are saying, no matter how outlandish. Maybe do it like the Raimi trilogy and have that tone of voice, which isn't so bombastic and melodramatic, but gets the point across. Like instead of shouting "From this day forward I will be known as Spider-Man" you just say it in a calm voice with hint of awareness. I know it ruins the intention behind all those exclamation marks but it would get tiresome to keep hearing everyone shout all their lines. Then again, you do have to be loud enough to reach across a city street, so you can't just whisper everything. I guess there's a balance between how shouty and how ironically not shouty you are. But. Make the lines work. Convince the listener that that character is really saying what they are saying like they believe in what they are saying, not just reading a line in a script. See what happens. Whatever you do, don't do that thing where you're making fun of whatever you're talking about as you're saying it, like they do now with all the ah frick

    Now in this instance, I don't mind the use of exclamations because you have to understand the cultural context of the time. They were really into selling trading cards and promoting their characters like a brand, much like promoting a pro wrestler. So we can interpret this as one villain promoting another, hyping his brand by coming up with a stage name and feeling rather proud of it in the moment. You see, you can look at the meta narrative drama as street performance, not good guys vs bad guys, but people who dress up and do things appropriately vs inappropriately. Then you have people like who's that guy next to The Undertaker you know really trying to promote the image. They're basically selling this character to whoever they're talking to, and so you're using the tone of voice of a local advertiser like you're hear on the radio or a local event, even though no one is buying a product. They may be hyping up the character to the opponent like an announcer in a wrestling ring. Now if they are talking to no one in particular, then they just really like talking to themselves because of how egotistical and stuck they are. I interpret most of the 90's personalities as being complete psychopaths, if we are to translate them to the real world. But they are enthusiastic psychopaths who really care about whatever it is they are doing.

    90s comics have cool art but why does everyone talk so much in them. They cover up so much of the art

        They talk too much in pretty much every comic.

        As a casual, that thing about comics always surprises me.
        It's as if the writers think they are writing a book or something similar.

          It's a holdover from 60s comics, which truly were too overwrought. They've scaled it back since then, but once comics put in too much political stuff they got wordy again. It's entirely a Big 2 thing, at least if you're dealing with competent indies and not pretentious studd or the guys trying to do Big 2.

        I remember really liking Bendis's style. But then, I also remember when the Whedon-style was big too. I'm glad neither are anymore.

            Yeah, not much of a contest. A favorite fanfic author of mine leaned heavily into that early MCU speak, but it made for good flow. Bad for pathos without a doubt, but it was better than Bendis's 'Get a load of this guy-"
            "you mean this guy?"
            " No, THAT guy."
            "Oh Right, THAT guy" shit.

    One thing that always bothered me about Spidercide was that, Spider-Man has an indomitable will and moral compass. I guess. Even his clones have to force themselves to be bad because at the end of the day, they're still Peter. Or maybe being bad is their default because Peter is an butthole who needs to force himself to be good. He's angry and needed a kick in the ass to make him be a good person. That's neat.
    But fricking Spidercide acts NOTHING like Peter. Kaine at least is Peter's anger. Ben is his goodness, and then during his crazy time he's a good approximation of how fricking dickish and amoral Peter could be.

    But Spidercide is just... nothing. He's like peak insane Venom without the goofiness, played straight with no humor. Even during the Ben Reilly mini he wasn't a facet or reflection or shade of Peter like Ben and Kaine are, he's just... "Hey, he's technically a clone. But he's also nothing like the original at all." The frick?

    This isnt even bad writing. The text reads well and has a nice flow. And the subject is building up a villain.

    "Look guys its moderately edgy therefore bad." You are bad. Personally. Cider yourself.

    Clone Saga is still better that Dan Slott's entire run.
