Awesome Characters Comicbook Fridge Funny Headscratchers Heartwarming Main NightmareFuel Trivia YMMV
Crack Pairing: Some fans wanted Felicity to hook up with Gerry and/or Darkdevil. Despite never meeting them. Then again, maybe that's why.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Maurice
Fan-Preferred Couple: May and Wes. May/Normie before the Ship Sinking.
Foe Yay: Spider-Girl and the Black Tarantula, who plans to someday have heirs with May.
And now Arana and the Black Tarantula, enemies who seem to have some history... and LOTS of tension. And as of Spectacular, are living together.
Slight subversion: May and Normie don't develop their Will They or Won't They? dynamic until his Heel-Face Turn. But the fight between the newly Venomized Normie and May is loaded with this.
Also, Fury, kind of.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Funny Face's friendship with his stick-puppet Bucky, who he treats as a real person-slash-child. Made painfully unfunny when Funny Face has a Freak Out over May webbing Bunky, claiming she's hurting, suffocating and scaring him because .
"Bunky" is claustrophobic, due to "his" mother locking him up in a closet for days at a time Ho Yay:
Felicity Hardy really, really, REALLY wants to be May's "partner".
Her mom Felica has none of the ambiguity.
Lady Octopus and Dr. Jade are an older and evil example.
Spider-Man II is a big fan of Spider-Man.
Hollywood Pudgy: Averted. She has a realistic figure ( and is still cute).
Jerkass Woobie: Amy Parker
Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Felicity
Moral Event Horizon: Probably April's murder of Tombstone. To be fair, she did think he killed her "sister".
April crossed the line when she decided not to inform May's family and friends that she was (allegedly) dead and once again steal her identity.
Brad bullying Nancy in order to get her to quit school. To the point of bringing an angry mob to her house.
Worst of all, it worked. Periphery Demographic: Launched as part of an a verse for kids, the series is also popular with older Spider-Man fans, especially after . The One More Day Mythology Gags don't hurt either.
Rescued from the Scrappy Heap:
Kaine. YMMV depending on how you feel about Nineties Anti Heroes.
Later on for Anya, for the fans who saw 616!Anya as something of rival.
April Parker appears to be fighting him for the number one Scrappy spot.
Villain Decay: Mr. Abnormal, Earthshaker and Killerwatt went from being credible bad guys to a collection of inept D-list government agents when they reappear several years later.
YMMV on whether Earthshaker was ever credible to begin with.
