>>101795540>make him a good character this time around
Not possible, because the entire premise of him was rotten from the start.
With Miguel, it was 'what if Spider-man was a morally grey but successful adult man in a horrible cyber-punk tomorrow?'
With Ben, it was 'What if the same Peter lost everything that made him keep living and fighting, in a way he can never regain it?'
With Kaine, it's 'what if we took regular Peter and threw him into a world of pain, and madness, and body horror but then gave him a chance to redeem himself?'
With Mayday, it's 'What it is like, to have older, jaded Peter as a Dad?'
Miles has fucking nothing to him. Nothing. People say that he is blackface Peter, but he is just shittier in every regard. Fuck, I thought a better origin and niche for him in first ten minutes I've heard of him than Marvel did in 10+ years when he was around. (Granted, it was make him first-gen Caribbean immigrant who is also one of descendants of Anansi, have Dr Strange guest-star a lot, and then rip Neil Gaiman off like there is no tomorrow but this is still about infinity times two better than what Benis did)
