Yeah, I beat the spider-man thing to death, but my youngest has so much spider-man swag...he's gonna be homicidal over things like this by the time he's twelve. What things? Well for the uniformed....or uncaring...unsharing, unclean....whatever you are this time of the month, the things that happen...dadadahn to Peter Parker. Namely over at the house of idea's aka Marvel Comics.
Now I know what fiction is. I know how it can also be a tool for good, even influencing in a positive way. See this is a gospel for Peter since, way way back with Stan Lee this guy's been doing pretty much what your always told to do.
He may not hit the church or slang bible scripture, but with a lot of the character development he's seen....I daresay he is one of the most real fictional characters ever. Real and good. An example for your kid's indeed.
Now this is barring the movies that have to be as such exciting and *insert annoying emotions and reactions* Those dont count. I'm talking about the guy that had his life stolen from him, well body....then cries for the guy that stole it having to die to give it up.
One noble act from an evil bastard....and this guy that got ram rodded....turns the other cheek and basically feels the pain for the evil motherfucker that ruined him. If that's not an example of being a good person *real or not* I dont know what is.
Now you may think he's some big pussy....which could be said. But I must give the dumb ass Slott his credit, it doesn't come over that way. See He walked a hundred mile in the bad guys shoes, and he feel's even more responsibility in the end. Me...I would have had a party with strippers and blackjack...even a midget fuck it. Then id have called the guy up on the ghost busters phone and told him I fucked his girlfriend.....and it wasn't even good. But I hardly Said I was a forgiving or "good" person.
Now that seems like a wall hitting me faster than Nick Cages at and Irs party selling baseball bats but no. I'm trying to make a point of just how much they have put behind one character to put him over as the good guy. It's marketing I know, but in the end...the rationale behind him markets it better than any toy or shampoo or movie could. He sets a bar for good when everything is too real. I cant say no one is as good a guy or anything since well, being real is a lot harder than being an idea brought to life every month....which is why I dont blame anyone that cant live up to that bar.
Yeah. I know i sound more unsane than usual. Well if that's possible....but in truth you need more things to help people see another side even if it is a comic character. They need to identify with an idea or philosophy and if they are like so many addle brained simians that are dragging their knuckles around here now....the bible isn't getting through, so they need something with some "purty" pictures to help em along to the big slop tray in the sky.
Now dont go off and say I said Spider-man was God, or a disciple or Jesus now. I mean he never has a beard or long hair....does he? I'm just pointing out that there is one focal point in media and modern culture that even through the negative manages to keep it real and positive.
Maybe you give some money to the spider-man charity so he can buy him a new costume...I mean he's been wearing the same shit since sixty two ffs. Great guy but smells like hot garbage cooking.....and this is how you expect the kids to behave?
I would say for shame but I know what you did last summer...and I know whats in the drawer beside your bed so I'm gonna make like common sense and human decency and *Disappear*
