So what character that has appeared over the years of Spidey history do you think is played out and done and should be retired for at least 5 years or killed off?


1. Norman Osborn


2. Venom/Carnage and all other symbiotes. Truly some of the most overused and badly used characters and concepts.


3. The Jackal: I am sick of this character and all his cloning of Peter and Gwen.

4. Jonah Jameson: retired him to Florida or something

5. Aunt May

Hate to say it, but it's probably all of the above.

Norman Osborn. Give us a good 5-10yr break!

I totally agree with you about these villains.

I agree that Aunt May and the Jackal (who was a one trick pony that should have stayed dead after the first clone saga) should be permanently killed off. I think Jonah, Norman, and Venom/Carnage can still bring out interesting stories in the hands of a capable writer. I like how Spencer has written Jonah and I look forward to his take on Osborn. Hopefully he will do an arc on the symbiotes as well.

Aunt May is top choice, One More Day made it perfectly clear her purpose is as a mandate and a road block rather than a three-dimensional character.

Gwen Stacy, or more specifically all her clones.

Alternate Earth versions don't really bother me, just sick of all the cloning

I agree. They should have ended the clones with ASM 149.

Actually, I would include Ghost Spider to the list. Her creators are now disgraced and her book has lost all it's steam to the point it's frequently cancelled and is amongst the lowest sellers in the Spidey range.
