        On a side note, it's like white people and eye lasers.

        Regardless, black people reeeeeally like the Arashikage from Naruto Shippuden. Isn't their motivation that they all betrayed their clans/villages in pursuit of being the strongest? And they all get defeated one by one by the heroes but still I see those red clouds so many places. There were even those American football players who went to game day as Arashikage members. There is something about being disloyal to your community but extremely loyal to your love of strength and power that is speaking to people. So to really appeal, be the toughest fighter but don't give a moral outside of "Might makes right."

        Literally Black Lightning did it and used to be pretty big and the most distinct of all old black superheroes I can think of as compared to Powerman [invincible+kung fu] and Black Panther [kinda just an alternative Captain America with african mojo sometimes] and Brother Voodoo [Voodoo Magic].

        Black Lightning was the only one that wasn't either leaning on a stereotype [not a bad thing, just expected] and/or had a super generic power set so ironically it became a generic stereotype. If he was Frozone or some shit they'd all have Ice Powers and Storm would use hail and snow more.

    So its a trend that has been going on for decades now, but Miles seems to be the best example.

    So, western comics are hampered by continuity. Not by continuity itself but by impression audiences don't want to be encumbered by past histories and back issues (not a problem when these western audiences get into One Piece, but whatever), so these western comic companies avoid complications in histories and development. So instead of developing their characters, they change the costume, the powerset, add powers, take them away...everything except have them grow, the story, time can't keep going, it'll 'alienate' new readers.

    So, Miles has NO distinct characterization aside from Gen z ebonics. No particular villains that are memorable. No supporting characters viewers care about. He is constantly seen as the lesser Spider-Man. So they power him up, and when you won't care about it, they'll do it more. It's not clear of they have an endgame for Miles but now he is the 'better' Spider-Man.

      One Piece is significantly easier to follow compared to capeshit. The back issue numbers are less the issue. It's trying to collect the right issues in the right order. Some characters are brutal to collect for. One Piece? Volume 1 onwards.

        It's a disingenuous argument from comic companies. They aren't really concerned with the accessibility of their catalogue to new readers. It's about renewing properties and repackaging the product. If they were really worried, they would still include notes from the editor telling readers which issue it was that event referenced within the dialogue happened in.

    I think you're looking at a symptom of a much bigger issue with the whole "Spider-team" in general.
    These characters were all largely intended as different versions of the same hero in different universes with alterations in the situations they face but largely the same approach.
    So put them all on the same team, which they were never designed to be on and they're fricking boring. None of them specialize in anything, none of them have anything to differentiate them once they're all in their "spider" personas. So what we're looking at now is a desperate attempt to artificially differentiate them before it becomes stale.
    Frankly, I would've gone the opposite route for Miles and made his Spider-sense slightly weaker while giving him more powers in the way of stealth, voice mimicry, different kinds of venom, et cetera. Then said he was better at analyzing the situation upfront and thinking up tactics utilizing both his standard and more unique abilities.
    Now he's more unique for certain situations while Peter specializes more in direct combat. Boom. But you can't do that because they all need to be the exact same level as Peter during all the classic "Spider-Man" moments we typically think of.

      So, this isn't gonna be popular but Miles's story is fine. The problem is they constantly want to speedrun it. For an unorthodox comparison.
      Phoenix Wright, thrust into the shoes of his mentor, over the course of the three games we see him carrying on what she started aided by her ghost. It's at the end of the third game where one of the last things she says to him hits so damn hard.
      >"Congratulations, I have nothing left to teach you."
      Boom. "Earn your wings" to "student has become the master" story. Miles's problem is every comic and adaptation constantly wants to fricking speedrun this. Once they pass the earning of the wings, they begin skipping through intermittent between rookie and champion instead of letting it take the time to develop properly.

          You didn't even need to do that. Just show that there's a clear mentor-mentee dynamic where one is more experienced and has the answers more often. Then again that can't work either due to the company consistently wanting Peter to act younger and more inexperienced than he actually is

            i found it funny that Peter also controls the sliding timescale at marvel, since the start point of his career as a superhero is at 16, if he's in his mid 20s then only 10 years or so have passed, if he's portrayed in his mid 30s then 20 years have passed since then.
            Meaning that right now canonically only 10 years have passed and the krakoan era is half of the x-men history in canon, what a waste

                yes and peter in now in his mid 20s, his origin still happened, that's why marvel, at least the stories we have seen since the 60s did happen in a 10 year timeframe, a bit stupid but whatever

    Every alternate spider who isn't named Miguel is complete shit. The Batman Beyond dynamic works because Bruce was old as dirt and still a badass in his own right. The constant emasculation and fricking up of Peter doesn't make Miles look any better, it just makes the writers look like fricking idiots, and the constant Spider-spinoffs just cheapen the brand and deteriorate what made Peter popular in the first place.
    >A bit of a loner as far as super heroes are concerned
    >Fiercely protective of his identity
    >Angry and arrogant, which causes him to frick up
    >Genuinely funny, not in a "bad dad joke" way
    The writers have scrubbed all the rough edges off of Peter's personality so now he's written as white Miles. It's shit. It's all shit.
