I don't agree with it and I don't give it anymore clout than the next guys. I'm sure he could write a single Peter Parker better than I ever could a married Peter Parker too.

If Peter Parker wasn't ever suppose to age he would've been left in High School or never been allowed to graduate college at the very least.

I've heard the argument that Stan and Steve aged him quickly because they didn't expect the series to last that long. Who writes something expecting it to get cancelled? Why would he think it would get cancelled if the whole reason they got an Amazing Spider-Man was the popularity of Amazing Fantasy 15?

Everything since the beginning of the series has been progressing Spider-Man through life. Some will argue at some point you have to stop or the character ages to much. Why? I mean the average age of the comic reader is larger. So you try to make him younger for another group of readers? Again I'm wondering why? I thought creating new titles like Ultimate and Marvel Adventures were for that. People want their kids to read about the character they grew up with and not some new age version? Okay so grab those back issues out or lets see Marvel release some tpbs collecting classic stories.

It's what Stan Lee says. You have to remember that Stan had been writing comics since the 1930s/early 1940s. From that period to the early 1960s, when Spider-Man debuted, there were A LOT of comic fads, none of which lasted. There were superheroes, then they faded, then romance, Westerns, mystery, horror, etc. When superheroes came back in the late fifties/early sixties, Stan just expected it to be another fad that would a few more years and then disappear again. He has said that he expected to see himself writing romance or Westerns or horror comics a few years down the line.
