*** Partially justified, in that they usually start with Peter just / only recently getting his powers, which is when Flash ''was'' the resident JerkJock. However, when you look at the animated series from the mid-90's and ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' Flash started out as the JerkJock, but underwent CharacterDevelopment and became a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, whilst 2012's ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' shows Flash's transformation in the span of a single movie.

Even the reviled (though less so in recent years) ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' cartoon was adding depth to his character as early as season one, and by season three he had become a major EnsembleDarkhorse, especially when he transitioned into becoming [[spoiler:Agent Venom]].

** Dan Slott isn't safe from this either. He still gets blamed for killing off Peter and being responsible for ''TheSuperiorSpiderMan''.

* FridgeBrilliance: In the PS1 game, human enemies seem incredibly slow, taking a while to aim and shoot or simply swing their guns for a PistolWhip. At first that may just seem like game balance to keep the first few levels from becoming frustrating experiences where you're continually stun locked and gunned down, but Spider-Man has been shown to be fast enough to dodge bullets before. Your simply perceiving humans to be that slow because Spider-Man is that fast.

* WinBackTheCrowd: Gwen Stacy as a character. While originally well-liked, she quickly became replaced by Mary Jane as the preferred romantic choice for Peter due to Mary Jane's FunPersonified attitude being more entertaining than Gwen's generally typical love interest personality. After her death, she became somewhat similar to [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Jason Todd]] in that many fans felt she was more important to the books as a dead character to provide angst and motivation rather than she did as a love interest.
//However, recent adaptations, primarily ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' and ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' have caused old fans who weren't too big on Peter/MJ and new fans who're introduced to their re-imagined versions of the character to cling to her. The latter especially, due to [[AdaptationalBadass her science skills being more pronounced to the point she's actually helpful to Peter]], [[Creator/EmmaStone a really talented actress]], and real chemistry between her and Peter as Emma Stone and Peter's actor Creator/AndrewGarfield are dating in real life, and met on the set of the first ''Amazing'' film. The results are a new lease of popularity, to the point that many fans now wish for her to be brought back to life (it doesn't help that recent adaptations and storylines have really damaged Mary Jane's character due to their poor handling of her).

* UnfortunateImplications: [[http://hellzyeahthewebwieldingavenger.tumblr.com/post/102777092482/nooshdog-therealsongbirddiamondback Many fans are uncomfortable with the way Silk has been written]]. MsFanservice and lack of distinct characterization aside, the handwave for her and Peter's instant attraction, that they have pheromones that force them to try and mate, leaves their consent questionable at best. To put it into perspective, 'pheromone control' is a superpower that generally gets treated as date rape, making the fact that its the justification for their attraction all the more messed up.

* ToughActToFollow: Part of the reason all the replacement Hobgoblins were so hated. Roderick Kingsley set a ludicrously high bar with his outstanding success rate against Spider-Man and general coolness, so when guys like Jason Macendale or Phil Urich turned up they had their every move compared to Kingsley's.



* UncannyValley: In his earlier appearances, Peter was distrusted for emulating a creepy crawly so well. Throw in his sometimes rather painful-looking contortions, as well as his incessant prattling, and its understandable that he might freak some bystanders out. For example, TheWasp admitted to being creeped out by him.
