You've obviously forgotten that Pete went all Gen X on us and became the Trapper. Still, he is a force to reckoned with.

    My problem with Eddie Brock was that he seemed to be a decent guy. If I remember correctly (remember it's been 10 years since I read this) his "big story" was about some kind of enlightened new age cult that in reality was a front for some criminal doings. Wouldn't a decent guy (as Brock was portrayed) be a little upset at losing the story, but more relieved that it didn't go any further or that the criminal organization was stopped? If I fuck up at work, in such a way that it would jeopardize the safety of others, and I get fired for it, do I have an undying hatred of the guy who fixed the mistake? No. That is why Carnage has the better backstory...he is nuts. He WOULD logically want to kill that guy.


Actually, Brock's story has to do with the Sin-Eater storyline. Basicaly a man with a shotgun blowing away many authority figures (including Jean DeWolfe, a freind of Spidey's). Brock got an exclusive interview with a man claiming to be Sin-Eater.

But it turns out the man was a schizophrenic who lived next door to Sin-Eater, and mistook SE talking about his plans as some of the voices in his head. When Spidey brought down the real Sin-Eater (who turned out to be the police detective investigating the case), Brock was 'exposed' as a fraud and essentially blacklisted from journalism. He blamed Spiderman for ruining his life and was about to kill himself in church when the symbiote showed up (Spidey used the church's bell to drive the symbiote away from him). The two came together like choclate and peanut butter and the rest is history.

On an interesting sidenote, when the character of Venom was being created, tha artists didn't know that there was going to be a new host for the symbiote, so they put a mouth on him. Turns out Marvel liked it and stuck with it.

If you want to see a really cool and modernized take on Spidey, I suggest going to dotcomics.marvel.com. They have the first 20 issues of Ultimate Spiderman online for vieweing. And it's free!

Wow! I was REALLY off! But I still remember that I didn't like it. Unless you tick off Chiquita, most papers are a little more lenient than that.

I think my whole problem was still that Brock went from decent guy -> stark raving lunatic a bit too fast. I always liked the look of Venom, but hated his character. I felt just the opposite about Doc Ock.

Thanks for the link, I've got some catching up to do!

Ah, Aquaman... always good for the "wtf??" factor. Anyone know whatever happened to that "Aquaman and Friends Hour" that I have heard mentioned for months now will eventually be added to Adult Swim?

One of many Hostess archives, where you can view the original comic in all its glory, is at:

Yay, another Seanbaby fan! Hulk vs. the Disco Devils is still my fave, but Spidey Spoils a Snatch is a close second.

With Macho Man being in the movie, I think they can build the franchise on wrestlers. For SM 2, the villains should be Rhino and Mysterio. Of course, they will be played by Rhyno and Rey Mysterio, Jr. I just like the idea of Terry Gerin wearing the Rhino costume with the horn. Or 5'6" skinny dude with a fishbowl on his head.
Better yet, the sequel can be a 3D movie with Doc Ock as the antagonist, and the audience can be treated to his tentacles shooting out into the crowd in every other shot of the film. Because 3D tricks are cool.

Rumour has it that Doc Ock will indeed be the next villain, and will be played by....Robin Williams. Hooray?

I honestly thin Rhyno would make a good Rhino... The comic book Rhino is just your average bruiser, and would make a good henchman/hitman, not unlike the role Rhyno played in his Team RECK days.

That said I agree that Doc Ock should be the next villan.

Well, having seen the scene in question, I wonder how provacative the missing footage must have been. :>
