Spiderverse and my feelings on it thus far

I quit Marvel years ago after they ended the MC2 Spider-Girl series. It was the only thing that got me to hang around after One More Day. I recently returned to buy Scarlet Spider (Kaine Parker) trades and get the criminally underrated New Warriors by Yost. I've been iffy on Spiderverse since it's basically just an excuse to kill off different spider characters. From what I've read it doesn't matter if these version are beloved or from a cartoon series--chances are they will be brutally murdered. Some of them already have been. There are two bright spots in this however as there will be mingling of these characters and other writers will be handling mini series.

Seeing how some of my favorites have already been slaughtered for this storyline I'm not that thrilled. That said the team for Spider-Girl will be returning for a story which I want to get out of loyalty to them (plus they actually know how to write Mayday.) Maybe Scarlet Spiders since I'm a fan of Kaine and Ben...I'm not familiar with Jessica. Even so it's a little weird for someone that's been reading DC to see all these $3.99 price tags.

Speculation for SPIDER-VERSE TEAM-UP #3 ahead.

The morals of Spider-Girl May "Mayday" Parker

I feel the need to post this because it's come to my attention that a certain event has stripped her of her characterization recenty.

SPOILERS AHEAD for Amazing Spider-Man

Bette Kane: Wash Out Sidekick or Most Determined Hero Ever?

I've been trade waiting Batwoman and skipped one to get to the Wonder Woman team up. There was also a few issues of Detective Comics that weren't released in trade. I recently backtracked to fill in the gaps which creates an interest portrait of Bette Kane.

November Starfire Month?

I want to devote a month to Starfire and decided not to do it in October. I'll be doing reviews of older comics, recommended readings and maybe a essay or two. As well as looking over some products (not the cartoon series though.) Koriand'r is an awesome character and deserves more than bashing from people online. At the very least it'll be interesting to compare the changes to the character not only from the relaunch but seeing who she is by the time the old universe ended.

The Multiversity preview

I saw the picture before I saw the name of the book and while I knew it wouldn't be certain characters it made me laugh. Batman and Luthor kissing which is misleading but also kinda truth.
