* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Spider-Man delivered one to SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom. Doom responds by saying that Spidey still lives only because Doom owes him his life.

ComicBook/SpiderMan, created in the SilverAge by Creator/StanLee has been written by various writers over the years. One of them was Creator/JMichaelStraczynski, who wrote over seventy issues of our favorite wall-crawler's adventures. His run was one of the most acclaimed by critics, controversial among fans and... screwed by ExecutiveMeddling in the history of Creator/MarvelComics publishing, despite the fact that Creator/JoeQuesada promised JMS very large creative freedom at the beginning.

* CharacterDevelopment: All Parkers got a lot of it. Peter and Mary Jane got big amount of it with getting back together, Aunt May got a lot when she found out Peter is Spider-Man... and Creator/JoeQuesada removed all of it [[RunningTheAsylum because of his stupid idea]] to make ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''.

Added DiffLines:

* EmbarrassingCoverUp: A purely accidental one had kept Aunt May from guessing Peter's ''real'' secret -- she'd had the feeling that he was hiding ''something'', and noticed that he seemed to be a bit awkward around girls, so she [[MistakenForGay thought that he was gay]].

* EyeScream: "The Other" has Morlun pluck out one of Spidey's eyes and [[ImAHumanitarian eats it]] as he beats [[CurbStompBattle Spider-Man to close to death]]. Of course, [[DeathIsCheap Spider-Man got better]].

Notable concepts brought about during the JMS run include: Spider-Man's (and many of his rogues') animal motif having potential supernatural origins, Spider-Man as a permanent and visible member of the Avengers (really a case of Creator/BrianMichaelBendis' ''New Avengers'' title bleeding over), organic web-shooters, "[[FanNickname Iron Spider]]", and the public reveal of Spider-Man being Peter Parker.

* TheDogBitesBack: After Spider-Man defeated Morlun, his servant, Dex, shot him to death as revenge for bad treatment.

to:

* DoingInTheScientist: Ezekiel tries to do this by revealing it wasn't the radiation that gave Peter his powers, but a totemic spider-god called the Great Weaver.
* TheDogBitesBack: After Spider-Man defeated Morlun, Morlun the first time, his servant, Dex, shot him to death as revenge for bad treatment.



* ImAHumanitarian: As noted in EyeScream, Morlun ate one of Spider-Man's eyes during their second battle. Possessed as the eponymous creature, Spidey then repays this and the beating by eating Morlun's face.

* [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Maybe Magic, Maybe]] ILoveNuclearPower: Totemic motive is written in a way that allows fans to choose their favorite from multiple interpretations of how Peter got his powers. Was it all a RedHerring and his powers are caused by radioactivity? Is Peter a ChosenOne of Anansi? And if he is, do his powers come from magic or is he the first one that got them from science? Did the spider bite him because he was scared, or because he wanted to pass his power on to a human before dying from radiation? Or maybe [[spoiler: it was Ezekiel who was the ChosenOne and because he refused the call, all his duties and status passed on Peter?]] And if so, did Anansi give him the power or are they two completely unrelated incidents [[spoiler: and Peter could become the ChosenOne because of already having the necessary personality '''and''' powers?]] You decide. The end of that story arc has Peter discussing this issue with a South American shaman, who answers that [[MathematiciansAnswer none of these possibilities are mutually exclusive]]. He says that a scientist would say that the sun rises in the morning because the Earth spins, while a mystic would say the sun rises because it is meant to, and they're ''both'' right.

* OneWingedAngel: When Morlun goes to Stark Tower to finish Peter off and breaks Mary Jane's arm when she tries to stop him, Peter to wakes up, partially transforms into Man-Spider, and kills him.

* MythArc: The search for answers about Spider-Man's powers, the "Spider-Totem", and the battle against Morlun. Sadly ExecutiveMeddling resulted in the whole idea [[TheChrisCarterEffect being]] [[AbortedArc screwed]]. [[invoked]]
** Came back with a vengeance in Spider-Verse, where Morlun's family and the Spider-Totem are central parts of the story.

** Came
At least until Arana/Spider-Girl's comic series tied into it, with the titular character working for a company founded by Ezekiel Sims and joining a cult worshipping the Spider-Totems, and ''ComicBook/SpiderIsland'' brought back the Queen and Web of Life. It's come back with a vengeance in Spider-Verse, where Morlun's family and the Spider-Totem Spider-Totems are central parts of the story.

* CardCarryingVillain: Goddess of chaos. She actually wanted to ally herself with Peter, rather than Loki, because the former has chaotic character, while the latter wants to control others.
