Go To



The [[LongRunner longest run]] of ComicBook/SpiderMan by any writer in its history branching off from ''ComicBook/BrandNewDay'', saw Dan Slott, who had been contributing to the previous era's "Webhead" brain trust since 2008, emerge as the sole writer starting in 2010. Dan Slott's helm as writer has seen the franchise achieve several critically and commercially well-received story arcs. The creation of several popular spin-off titles have also resulted in the comic line effectively evolving into becoming a "Spider-Family." Slott ended his run with one last story arc -- ''Go Down Swinging'' -- in 2018, succeeded by [[ComicBook/NickSpencersSpiderMan Nick Spencer]].

* ''ComicBook/RenewYourVows''

Added DiffLines:

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Scorpio tries to get one last shot at Spider-Man by stating he still knows everything that's happened over the last year, including that very day, and that something terrible is coming to destroy Spider-Man's world. Spidey retorts that happens to him every Tuesday, so as final threats go. . . not that impressive.

Added DiffLines:

* IncrediblyLamePun: Peter really ''is'' a bad influence on Bobbi Morse. Scorpio is trying use his Zodiac key at a special receptacle he built into Big Ben, claiming he's invincible with his mind controlling the key. Bobbi socks him on the jaw.

* CoolOldLady: Aunt May takes a level or two in badass after ''Worldwide'', helping to manage Parkertech.

She pretty much runs the Uncle Ben Foundation, flying all over the world to oversee its humanitarian relief efforts, and is a majority shareholder of the company, a position she's not afraid to use if someone at PI needs a stern talking-to.


* BigBad: With Norman Osborn OutOfFocus for much of the first run, Doc Ock ends up stepping back up as Spider-Man's ArchVillain.

Added DiffLines:

* AllJustADream: Norman Osborn [[spoiler:learning the Mystic Arts, rejecting his tiger totem for a Green Goblin one, and defeating Spider-Man with magic was all part of a test to see if Osborn was worthy of learning magic in the first place. He failed, but it shows him that, despite Peter's cure for the Goblin serum, Norman's "true" self still exists within him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BattleCouple: Spidey and Mockingbird after their RelationshipUpgrade.


* PortmanteuCoupleName: InUniverse, Spidey suggests "Spockingbird" for the Spider-Man[=/=]Mockingbird team-up-with-benefits. Bobbi's reaction is "[[NoJustNoReaction No. God, no]]."

to:

* PortmanteuCoupleName: PassThePopcorn: The Jackal's new tech doesn't just clone people, it straight-up brings them back from the dead, memories and personality intact. Otto Octavius, currently trapped in solitary Octo-bot, gets his body into the Jackal's hands so he can be resurrected. Once he realizes the full scope of the tech, he also realizes the personality within that body is not his, but Peter Parker's, and instead of just adding his recent memories, he'll have defeat Peter in a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind. Jackal, watching something going oddly this time, doesn't get quite what's happening, but knows it'll be fascinating, and demands popcorn. Which he's seen munching on when Otto emerges victorious.
* PortmanteauCoupleName:
InUniverse, Spidey suggests "Spockingbird" for the Spider-Man[=/=]Mockingbird team-up-with-benefits. Bobbi's reaction is "[[NoJustNoReaction No. God, no]]."

Added DiffLines:

* GroinAttack: Mockingbird pulls one on Griffin, who's robbing an empanata truck, with her teaser batons. Complete with joke about "today's special includes fried huevos." Clearly, Peter's a bad influence on her.

Added DiffLines:

* KafkaKomedy: A lot of the humor of the series often came at the expense of Peter Parker. He had a tendency to face hardships and embarrass himself, often as a result of his poor decisions.


* HappilyMarried: The ComicBook/{{Secret Wars|2015}}-related ''Renew Your Vows'' mini-series saw Slott try his hand at depicting a much healthier relationship between Peter and Mary Jane as they looked after their young daughter Annie and battled a formidable despot who ruled over their domain on Battleworld. The series went on to have a follow-up ongoing written by Gerry Conway, where the family now function as a crime-fighting unit.


* ContinuityPorn: Many minor supporting characters make a surprise appearance, especially in issue #655, No One Dies. In Issue 795, Loki mentoins still owing Peter a favour and Peter vaguely recalls "making a deal with someone like Loki, then losing something very important", both plot points from the JMS run on the book (and, infamously, ''One More Day'').

Slott did this deliberately to create a cohesive impression that somehow every Spider-Man story Post-OMD still happened, even if the context was altered.


Added DiffLines:

* CrazyJealousGuy: Peter Parker during the entire Regent arc. He literally goes berserk at the thought that Mary Jane could be dating Tony (even if they weren't), and that extends to him getting into a TestosteronePoisoning slug fest with Iron Man over things as petty as Youtube commenters liking Iron Man more, to Tony befriending Miles Morales, and finally culminating, after Stark good-naturedly jibing that he could give Spidey better tech than Peter, with Peter punching Iron Man in a face and starting a brawl for no real reason other than maybe his ex is moving on without him (just like he's been doing with many girls).
