Spider-Men II 002 (2017)
Not... unsalvagable but not pleased with it so far. The secret Peter's keeping will make or break the storytelling choices for this Milesquest. Just going to reply to some of the 0-Day fourchan reactions. What do YOU make of this mini so far?

Aright boys and girls here we go.
Quote:>'old evil 616' miles threatening Taskmaster to kill Spiderman
is he stupid?
Sadly, we know nothing about his POV - for apparently storytelling mystery generating purposes.
Quote:At first I thought this was the Ultimate Taskmaster, but nope seems to be the prime Universe one.
Totally thought (still wish) it's Ult-Tasky.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)11:55:20 No.94690811
I don't know why Bendis and Pachelli need to redesign every fucking villain that shows up in their books. This Taskmaster design sucks.
What's up with that badass (ugly looking) sword??! It that how he 'blasted' (poorly explained for storytelling surprise purpose) BOTH heroes thru that window??!

None of the panels in Page 1 seem to connect to any of the other ones?
The time stamp of "A WEEK AGO" didn't help. Another timeframe jumping Event? Sheesh.

However it seems that Tasky might have gotten a power boost because I don't recall him being on the level where he could throw Spiderman out the window
Bah. Is this AFTER his stint on HYDRA Avengers?
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)11:58:08 No.94690861
I knew it was going to be something stupid and disappointing.
I just held on to the foolish hope that they'd at least TRY.
Still undecided. Finding out Miles post-SW status is still important to me.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)11:58:12 No.94690862
At the end of the first issue, Spidey actually seemed scared when Taskmaster shows up.
Spider-man will make a joke to Galactus' face and here he's "This guy will kill us both without breaking a sweat".
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)11:58:21 No.94690865
Get ready, the whole issue reads like that.
It's that timeframe jumping. Not laid out clearly.

>3 years older then Miles
How old is Miles supposed to be here? How old is Peter?
Yeah, What the--??! It would be very interesting to see online reaction to this after reading this age difference reveal!
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)11:59:14 No.94690883
Usually Bendis has endless connected dialogue, not unconnected dialogue.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)11:59:48 No.94690893
Miles is supposed to be 16, while Peter is around 28. How Bendis came to "three years older" makes no &^%$ing sense.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:01:18 No.94690915
Wait, if it's nothing then who's that adult Miles Morales who has that big ass scar across his face?
Well, that is clearly part of the secret Peter is keeping from Miles. And surprisingly Jessica Jones now too.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:02:33 No.94690940
I'm not feeling this Taskmaster redesign. I feel like it is trying to hard to make him look scary.
It's the endless character retweaking that has undermined his Q-rating, IMO.

>So much electricity that you can see his skeleton
What is this shite, looney tunes? Even the pigeons are surprised, and then there are the ninja stars.
Cool stars. What hero did you photographically memorize there?
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:04:37 No.94690975
Some sort of master criminal who managed to delete all records of his existence
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:05:21 No.94690988
why did pete snap miles' neck to pull him from taskmaster?
That was... odd choreographed more SPACK than snap thwip. Then oddly that Pete said he webbed at Miles face (side).

>I hate being pounced on!
Good thing you have danger sense and super reflexes as powers then. God we aren't even halfway into this thing and I'm being vividly reminded of why I hate Bendis.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:07:04 No.94691031
He's got a &^%$ing skull for a face, you don't need to redesign him to make him look scary, just draw him nasty.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:08:22 No.94691065
They don't actually explain anything in this issue.
Quote:TNG !!78OlG4aHJqS 08/16/17(Wed)12:10:22 No.94691107
I mean they went a little bit more then just saying "I found nothing on google"
"Starkle" not Google.
MJ and Amanda and Friday must be doing better at keeping the company afloat than Tony in a coma-induced A.I.-existence imagined. Heh. Hmm... is this just a cheap namedrop 'gag' cuz Peter clearly used "Guggle" in the Recap.

Nice try Peter but we all know that Cage's heart belong to Iron Fist
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:14:01 No.94691191
The "T" on his chest looks a bit silly. It works on his shield, not on his costume.
For that matter, where is his shield?
At least Bendis has Peter treating Tasky like the real threat he is, and not like the jobber he's often forced to be.

How did her investigation lead her to getting punched by a red hulk(?) and licked by Madam Hydra?
Those various one panel snapshot moments each look like more "fascinating" unexplained untold adventures than this mini is panning out so far.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:15:55 No.94691235
She even had to suffer through a conversation with Moon Girl to find nothing
That was the most... unlikely contact to arrange. Maybe she should've asked Black Cat who would be the smarter choice!
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:16:56 No.94691257
I think that is the intention now. Maybe his old version got removed through magical crap?
This whole Universe 8 switchover stuff is beginning to come to bite the MU in the behind - as it was inevitable. Maybe Ultimates 100 will help clear things up... Reading that next.

Hey now Moon Girl is pretty good in her book, it's a fun little series.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:18:29 No.94691285
Ssssh, she's enjoying the lick from Viper. Just enjoy the moment.
OOOOOH! THAT's who that is. Uhm. Eww.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:18:32 No.94691286
Peter flat out says he saw records of Miles we know. So what is even the point?
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:18:50 No.94691294
How is Miles even uglier now?
The overall art was okay.

Thought history was altered so that Miles always lived in 616.
That's seems how his series has misled us all this time. (In spite of all my posts for answers to this since post-SW's ANAD.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:34:24 No.94691607
It's both really, Molecule Man retconned 616 so that Ultimate Miles and friends where always part of it.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:36:34 No.94691653
The entire miniseries is about who the other Miles is you dingbat
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)12:48:55 No.94691911
So Jessica Drew is back to her old Spider-Woman duds?
Sad crapping on continuity.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)13:17:15 No.94692497
That is literally what they did. Until Bendis &^%$ed it up last issue and had Miles and Peter acknowledge that Miles hadn't always been in 616
Hmm... thought that read 'wrong'.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)13:31:05 No.94692755
>Peter is 19 now.
This means at least he should have entered college at age 15.
That is just... wrong.
Quote:Anonymous 08/16/17(Wed)13:35:10 No.94692834
It was absolute garbage. And you should be ashamed of yourself for thinking anything positive of this showing by Miles "I one shot everyone, even Blackheart with my Venom Blast" Morales.

And Jessica is lying, too, right?
Obvs. Course her story was overly colorful. Hmm... maybe she made those encounters up too.

>Wonder Woman reference
I know there are no editors, but come on Bendis
After this the posts pretty much degenerated into bitchfest for the sake of bitching about everyone associated and reading this series. Lots of swear words but oddly no one used Peter's new choice curse: WHEATCAKES! No point in copy/pasting that hate for haters sake.
