    Spiderman is DEAD! ►►
    Venom is the VICTIM! ►

    We've seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That's right, I'm talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
    Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn - the Green Goblin - was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben's do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

                                        Now next theory on spider man is are his powers passable through genetics. And to make this clear, would his children gain all of Peter's powers or only a few of them.

                                              Sorry, she is hotter than Mary Jane, more committed, and brings cake. The Trifecta of Neighbor Girls!
                                              I didn't see Mary Jane bring Peter cake she she was the neighbor girl! She said Hi over trash cans!!!
                                              More importantly Mary Jane fell in love with Spider Man not Peter, NeighborGirl Fell in love with Peter.

                                                          Matpat, as my first comment on any video, i'd like to say that i love all 3 of your channels (still waiting for the 4th). In this theory, i completely agree that his loss of power is due to some psychological syndrome, but not ptsd. According to mayo clinic the patient must not feel the effects of ptsd until 6 months after the event, and the effects last for months to the rest of their life, no matter how much therapy (which in Peter's case is very little). I love everything that you and Stephanie do, but i did feel entitled to try to correct this theory as i have researched this in the past. Keep theorizing!

The newer Spidermen I hate because they are far to over-the-top . The original Spiderman you can relate to and you see vibrant humanity in him. The new ones are either over-the-top dark like in the second movie series or funny, quirky, bubbly like the one in Spiderman Homecoming. Say what you will about the newer Spidermen, including the one from Disney, they are just too over-the-top in my eyes.

                                                                    • Leonardo Juarez

                                                                      • Cen2050

Spider Man was, to be blunt "getting in the way" of Peter Parker's life, he didn't WANT the responsibility so his powers began fading. It wasn't until he accepted the fact that he NEEDED his powers to protect his friends and family that they return in full.
