Superior Spider-Man: An Open Letter to Dan Slott

B-Mask makes a second and possibly the last appeal to the famed Superior Spider-Man writer who has deviated from the straight and narrow when handling online criticism and just communicating with his fans in general.

16 issues down the line, over half a year and with a correspondence between myself and Dan Slott after my previous video, Dan Slott’s Dying Wish. Here I critiqued the overall direction of the Spider-Man series and the potential pratfalls Superior Spider-Man faced. All this time on- Has anything changed?

B-Mask was not always a purveyor of animation. Having credentials ranging from frog slinger to hash seller, he has experienced life to its fullest extreme from under his tiny rock. He hosts the series known as Beyond Pictures which aims to look beneath the surface of works- understandably difficult in this day and age.

One Comment on “Superior Spider-Man: An Open Letter to Dan Slott

  1. The problem I have with Dan Slott’s writing in Superior Spider man is he kind of missed the point of Spider man, by that I mean what made The Amazing Spider man series good was the sense of struggle in them, Peter losses loved ones and can go against villains you think he might not be able to beat. In Superior Spider man he cares about very little so any investment in the series is gone but every issue there’s some kind of Deus Ex Machina were he builds some kind of gadget and beats the guy. It’s lazy writing that neglects what fans of the series enjoy and have come to expect for a comic staple.

    This is only made worse when Dan glosses over big events like Peter getting back together with Mary-Jane and the downfall of Shadowland to make room for Peter in University acting like an ass or building some new gadgets while acting like an ass.

    That being said it’s a cool story I just wish it was done better, I like the darker heroes like the new Scarlet Spider, Punisher or Magneto.

    P.s Keep up the good work, love watching your stuff.
