Spider-Men II #3 and Generations: The Spiders
In this episode, Jack and Brian welcome back Superior Spider-Talk‘s Dan Gvozden for an extended episode as we travel back in time with one version of Miles in Part 3 of Spider-Men II and another in Generations: The Spiders!
- 0:00 – Intro
- 1:57 – Spider-Men II #3 – Are we in for an extended run? Introducing the Kingpin, but what about Evil Miles? Considering plot mechanics and the series format. What is it all leading to? Too violent?
- 32:32 – Your feedback on Spider-Men II #3
- 34:56 – Our three-word summaries of Spider-Men II #3
- 36:15 – Generations: The Spiders – A beautifully rendered Ditko homage that’s more Spider-Men than Spider-Men II? Digging deeper into the question of identity. If Peter is so Amazing, then where can (should) Miles go from here? And is it all part of a larger plan?
- 1:01:49 – We attempt three-word summaries of Generations: The Spiders (although Dan goes over and Jack is stumped)
- 1:03:53 – Outro; What did *you* think of these issues? Let us know!; And coming up…
