As I've said recently, when was the last time any of us thought of Peter Parker as a teen in the MU Proper, despite the SM films?

I haven't thought of him as a teen since the late 60s. To my way of thinking, he's at least 23-24 if not 28-30.

So I'm not surprised Marvel is taking him back to his teens (and thus perhaps make him more identifiable to film audiences), and reviving Cap in the process. Spidey's got a lot of baggage that should go, IMO.

This would be an excellent time to 'correct'/tweek a lot (I mean, A LOT) of other things too within the MU too, which they should have taken advantage of at the time of HOM, and didn't. At least Brubaker has fixed Lorna all on his own.

I wouldn't mind seeing CW go away either, though leaving the 50-state teams with us might not be a bad idea. Getting rid of the NA team (forever!) and changing back IM into a less than uber-impervious 'hero' might not be a bad idea either....this new IM just astinks on every level and is 100% uninteresting, not more so.

...and while they're at it, making their huge cast of villians and criminals viable again, from the Wrecker and Mr. Hyde to Mephisto and Kang, would also be an excellent idea.

I mean, let's look at it:

An anonymous poster (and yes, anonymous is not giving your e-mail, and a password to edit your post if need be) comes here and makes an initially vague post, basically saying "Hey guys, stuff is going to happen and I didn't like what I heard." but does mention that the comics and movies should more resemble each other. No source is cited.

He comes back saying something like "Okay fanboy, here's your spoilers" and says Peter is back in high school. Considering that high school isn't in the movies, this makes no sense and would lead to the immiediete cancellation of 616 or Ultimate titles. And then mentions that Cap is back in WWII

Sounds like a horrible move. Us modern folks can't even tell you when the War of 1812 was fought, let alone care about war stories.

Anonymous poster comes to the Internet and makes up complete crap. Seriously, if I make a new screen name and create some weird and elaborate storyline that "a friend" told me , will you all swallow it?
