I was just curious as to the status of your CMCU Heroes for Hire movie. If you need any help with it, just ask. I totally understand if you're busy with stuff, and that's perfectly fine, but I was just wondering how this was going so far.
Well, I know how Danny and Cage meet, by stopping a robbery of a small-time restaurant near a Rand Corporation facility. After meeting both of them decide to help people while getting paid. They essentially become a mix of private detectives and security guards who track down criminals and work with the cops. There is a problem however as they refuse an assignment by a woman calling herself Black Mariah due to it being unquestionably illegal which ignites Mariah's ire.
It's fine Ben, what I'm saying is that maybe you should just create the article now so it's already there. Just add the cast list and everything, you don't have to fill in the plot yet. In fact, you can add the scenes to the plot as you write them if you want. It doesn't have to be all fully complete right away.
Having recently gotten an account for the fan-supported version of FusionFall, I've been coming up with new ideas for that Marvel/CN crossover we discussed a while back, along with the possibility of making it (yet.) another A Puff of Responsibility adaptation, only this time with all the Cartoon Network characters instead of just the Powerpuff Girls and Dexter's Laboratory ones.
I wanted to see if either you or Primal would still be interested in realizing that project at some point, somehow.
So, what ideas, going back to the one I pitched a while back (the Secret Wars-esque one.) did you have in mind? I believe that one of the ideas I had was to have a version of the Intelligencia that consisted of the smartest villains from both worlds.
Most of my ideas mainly revolve around Ben 10 for example i wanted to fuse certain alien races from it's world with the marvel ones (Highbreed/Skrulls,Galvan/Kree,Celestialsapiens/Celestials and so forth) ,similar organizations are fused (Plumbers/Sword).What do you think?
Sorry, I was busy yesterday. So far I agree with all of the ideas, they sound good. If you've seen Samurai Jack season 5, then maybe Samurai Jack could still have his little story arc about getting stuck in time and it could be in 2099?
I'd also like to add in elements from my own A Puff of Responsibility 2099, such as the PPGs of that time period being genetically/cybernetically-enhanced clones of the originals, Spidey being a descendant of Professor Utonium, an old villain (I have yet to decide who.) to be the head of Alchemax, etc.
I had a different villain in mind for being the main antagonist; the High Evolutionary. A callback to Spider-Man Unlimited, the High Evolutionary survives to 2099 using the Jackal's cloning technology, and he becomes the prevalent threat by threatening the future with anthropomorphic animals.
Speaking of the High Evolutionary. An idea I had was to make Vilgax take the role of the High Evolutionary (kind of like how I made Mandark into Mysterio in A Puff of Responsibility.). He could also ally himself with the Intelligencia, which leads to his work involving clones, as the Jackal is a member of the Intelligencia.
Going back to the idea of The Clone Saga, how would that play out? I mean, the Jackal, obviously, but what else? I was thinking that Vilgax could possibly take the place of the High Evolutionary in this instance, but the primary benefactor behind all of it would still be the Green Goblin.
Yeah, those two have to be pretty high up for me. I'd also put the original Stan Lee / Jack Kirby run of Fantastic Four up there too, that and the original Avengers run are just so fun and have a lot of rereadability.
Basically, there's more than one little resistance against Doom besides Nightwatch. There are others that hail from alternate universes, such as the Peter Parker one. There's even a version of the Midnight Sons led by Doctor Strange, consisting of Morbius, Ghost Rider, and Scarlet Spider (the Peter Parker-verse one.).
A plotline I had was that the PPGZ (from that one plotline I told you 'bout, Ben.) and the current Sigmaverse Spider-Man are on a supply drop mission for Nightwatch, but are attacked by Xenilla and an explosion is caused. Blossom is seperated from the others but is saved by the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man. He then takes her back to his base, which houses of a version of the New Avengers, and tells her that if the explosion didn't get her friends, Xenilla will.
Scarlet Spider pitys Blossom and offers his aid, albeit reluctantly. He then takes her to the Midnight Sons, and they agree to help.
What sounds better for a series focusing on the entire Marvel Universe (for example, Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Defenders (both MCU and comic versions), S.H.I.E.L.D, Illuminati, Namor, Inhumans, etc.)?
Marvels (a nod to the classic storyline), Marvel Universe (Marvel Heroes' original working title), or Marvel Heroes (I'm a bit iffy on this since there'll be episodes focusing on villains too).
Well, it looks like garbage. I mean, I guess it would be cool if there was, like, a little silhouette of Venom at the end of it, but no. All we get is this one shot of the symbiote in a container, and that's all.
I'm not going to judge the movie yet, I have my reservations, but the movie doesn't look bad and to be honest the more I think about the concept the more it interests me. The sci-fi approach and involvement with the government actually sounds pretty cool, but at the same time it's Sony...
They're supposed to be goggles, kinda like the homemade costume from Homecoming. I just used the hinge pieces from some LEGO levers and cut off the sticks, then I just glued them onto the heads the best way I could and painted them.
I got the idea for them from this one guy on YouTube whose name I can't remember for the life'a me.
Doc Ock is a perfect mesh of pretty much every Doc Ock!
@Ben, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, they're great comic book movies and even better movies in my opinion and the first one was great at capturing the spirit of Batman.
Yeah, I know that they don't look that much like goggles, but with the limited resources that I have, I really didn't have a whole lotta options.
Ock is one of my favorite minifigs to date. So proud of the way the trenchcoat worked out in the end.
To me, Superman, Superman II, Batman, and Batman Returns are the best D.C. movies ever made. Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are also great films in their own rights, but for me, nothing can beat the gloriousness of Donner and Burton's works. Plus, I'll never forget that scene where the Penguin bites the guy's nose off.
The batman and sensational spidey figures are spectacular but why's batman body blue instead of grey or black like it normally is?
My favorite DC films are Batman Maks of the phantasm,The Donner Superman films ,Batman: Under the Red Hood and Batman 1989. I like Begins and Dark knight too but they don't really feel like comic book movies and they ramble way to much about their own importance for my taste.
I dot really like Batman Returns because of how much they changed Catwoman and Penguin. Hell I think that a villain like Killer croc or Ratcatcher would have been better as the antagonist.
That's sort of a weird experiment. I guess I just think of the different biomes in Argentina that I know about, I haven't visited it and don't know much about it so I don't really have much to go off of. (I usually think the same thing for different places, like I'd think of landmarks in the US and the different states' environments, then Africa's different environments and landmarks, Asia's, etc.)
What are your thoughts on the 2016 Spidey comic? I really like it a lot, one of my favorite recent Spider-Man comics. It feels like a TV show but in comic book format, I just love the tone and stories and everything about it. It's a bit juvenile, but it's still good in my opinion.
Yeah, true, the villains weren't developed very well, but you have to admit Green Goblin and Mysterio were pretty good. That was my one complaint about Spidey, Max, it was so short.
It could've been an ongoing series so fans have the option of reading: a younger Peter Parker set in high school similar to the Stan Lee / Steve Ditko era, a more modern Peter Parker with a job in the Dan Slott era (soon to be a new era...), and other characters like Miles Morales and Silk and stuff like that.
I understand Venom and Carnage probably didn't appear since it was for all ages, and Carnage's at his best without a restricted environment like that. Venom though I could've seen, and it's a shame we didn't get to see him and more of Spidey's rogue gallery.
Modern Cartoon Network's meh. It has great shows, yet they only focus on TTG, the Ben 10 reboot (it's been improving lately, Omni-Tricked was fantastic), and OK K.O (this show's good though). They don't know how to schedule at all. Their definition of a "special event" is hitting the "TTG spam button" and having it air for 7 days a week all day, every day (which they did multiple times) and it screws over every other show on the channel which is actually good. TaWoG, WWB, AT, SU, etc.
I think CN has some great shows (JLA, SU, AT,AWOG and probably some others I don't watch at all) but keeps focusing on their bad reboot of their once good shows (Ben 10, PPG and <shivers> TTG) and only airing certain shows (the ones that give them more toy money). It doesn't help that they give horrendous time slots to good shows and the difference in air time between countries is too big.
I didn't draw the eyes over. I made them seperately and put them on the mask. Yeah, it's cheesy, but it's the only way it would work. Plus, by this point, I had already finished painting the head itself, so the natural eyes weren't an option.
Well, it's a different kinda Rhino. Remember that the show is supposed to be a familiar, yet different, take on the mythos. Some characters, like Green Goblin and Kraven, are more similar to their comic book counterparts, while others, like Scorpion and Rhino, are completely different iterations of my own imagination.
Also, keep in mind that the series is modeled after the A Puff of Responsibility mythos as well, so...
I thought he was cool. Sure he was better in TNBA, but I liked the original TAS Bane because of how over the top he was. Plus, he acted way closer to Rhino than Kraven was, I felt.
Well, at the time when he did cripple the Dark Knight, everyone thought that he was a complete force to be reckoned with. Yeah, Kraven buried Spider-Man alive, but that's only cause he used a gun to knock him out, and it took him 20 years to get to that point. Bane defeated Batman with his bare hands in their first encounter.
Also, Kraven, at his typical strength, can't punch through brick walls. Bane and Rhino can.
I've recently started watching it and i noticed a lot of similarities with spider-man. For example the main villain Blight is basically Norman Osborn,Spellbinder is Mysterio,Stalker is Kraven,Inque is sandman/Hydroman,Shriek is Shocker,False Face is Chameleon,the terrific trio are the fantastic four,Nelson Nash is Flash Thompson and Ten is very similar to Black Cat. Even Terry is pretty similar to Peter both lost a (adoptive) parent partially because of their actions,both have a single female mother figure,they are both quipsters and both stick to walls (i don't think bats do that tho) and there's that moment lifted straight out of asm 33.
It's definitely inspired by Spider-Man, but I think you're overgeneralizing a lot of it (like Nelson Nash is just based on the stereotypical "jock" trope, a bunch of the villains' powers aren't really unique to specifically Spider-Man characters, origin stories commonly have people - and usually family - die, Terry's supposed to be a polar opposite to Bruce so he's less serious and more of a quipster, etc.) and missing a few things - the Terrific Trio were intentionally references to the Fantastic Four and the rogue gallery were supposed to be "expies" of Batman's rogue gallery, like Inque/Clayface, Ten/Catwoman, Blight/Joker, etc..
Like I said, it's definitely inspired by it, but it's more inspired by Buffy and Blade Runner, and the rogue gallery's more based on Batman's.
I mean yeah Nelson is a typical jock but it's mentioned that he later became good friends with Terry ala Flash. I can see the similarities that inque has to clayface and Ten with Catwoman (although her motivation of wanting to impress her father is Felicia's motivation) but Blight is nothing like the Joker he's more like Dr Phosphorus mixed with Green Goblin.
I think it's what if "spider-man was Batman's protege set in Blade Runner with the villains being spider-man's enemies with batman like motivations and backstories"
I have the x box one edition that allows you to play as the joker.
I've had a weird thought I've had for quite a while 'bout something.
I've kind of been re-imagining Scarlet Spider as more of a Damian Wayne Robin-esque character to Spider-Man's Batman. Basically, instead of a clone, he'd be a direct descendant of the original Spider-Man, either a son or a nephew, who takes on the mantle to aid an older Spider-Man as he comes back out of retirement (think Dark Knight Returns/Spider-Man: Reign.).
I dunno. Just a weird idea I had that Scarlet Spider would work better as a descendant and sidekick/partner rather than just a clone.
I don't mean Damian in specific (I'll admit that he was pretty terrible, too.). I just mean a descendant of Spider-Man, whether he be nephew, son, or even daughter, who takes on the mantle of Scarlet Spider and becomes the partner of a much older Spider-Man.
Think the relationship between Carrie Kelly and Bruce Wayne in TDKR.
I've actually gotta new A Puff of Responsibility headcanon, (big suprise, amirite? My mind should be called the official APoR multiverse XD) that I came up with after reading a fanfiction recently, that uses this idea.
Youch, that's not good at all... Religion, race, sexuality, etc. shouldn't matter to people in negative ways, even if you're not apart of a certain group of people. It's always dumb to me how people would say offensive things, I wonder what goes through their heads...
I haven't seen the video yet, guess it looks like I will now though.
The prime example I can bring up is his video opposing the idea of one of the main characters in Star Wars being a homosexual, during the Episode VIII hype. He brought up a lotta stereotypes, including a racist one about Muslims.
He also has a habit of making videos about how he's, like, the best, or the greatest, or about how he's always right. If he's for real, then he's got an ego as inflated as Donald Trump's.
Going back to my idea of Scarlet Spider being more of the Robin to Spider-Man's Batman, what do you guys think of a Dark Knight Returns/Spider-Man: Reign-like universe where Miles Morales becomes the Scarlet Spider and the partner of a much older Spider-Man who comes out of retirement?
It would be that, in the future, Spider-Man realizes that his age partially inhibits his ability to fight crime. Taking on a sidekick, or at least a protege, would be ideal because then he could have someone to count on to pick up where he leaves off.
It's sort of anime-esque, but considering that I was inspired by having just been working on A Puff of Responsibility Z at the time I was envisioning the universe I feel it's consistent.
Basically, he has the general Green Goblin face (yellow eyes, pronounced cheeks, huge grin, pointy ears, etc.), but instead of a hat, he actually has long, purple hair. He also wears a brown, tribal-like tunic over his chest. He has no gloves or boots, instead sporting 2 fingers and a thumb on each hand and 2 toes on each foot.
For powers, he can generate small fireballs which act as grenades, akin to his Ultimate appearance.
Also, instead of a glider, I envisioned him instead using the broomstick from his first appearance in ASM #14.
For Goblin II, which is Harry, it's essentially the same design, only with a pair of demonic, bat-like wings on the back, a trait carried over from his mother, Hobgoblin.
In terms of comic book movies, is there anything you guys feel you were cheated out on?
For me, it's the fact that I never got to see Dylan Baker turn into the Lizard in Spider-Man 4, and the fact that I never got to see Billy Dee Williams become Two-Face in Tim Burton's Batman III (The LEGO Batman Movie doesn't count for me.).
Spider-Man 4. A good Batman movie besides the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan movies. A good Justice League. A good The Flash portrayed in the movies (I don't care about what you say, that's not Barry Allen, that's a Wally West knock-off named Barry Allen). An actual blonde Barry Allen on TV or the movies. Kite-Man not being in the DCEU (come on, he's great). Yeah, I have a lot of DC movie-related stuff that I feel cheated on...
I can't believe I also forgot... A good Fantastic Four movie. The best one was decent, pretty cheesy and the effects are really dated, but it at least had a good storyline. The worst one... Is considered one of the worst films ever.
I feel i was cheated out on: A Spectacular spider-man season 3,Spider-Man 4,seeing the alex ross spider-man design in live-action,having TSSM in netflix ,a spider-man cartoon made by Bruce Timm and company during the 90's, a live-action spider-man tv show,seeing classic black mask in BTAS, seeing a Flash Dcau cartoon with the flash from JLA/JLU, having a good F4 movie, Marvel not continue with marvel animated movies (like Ultimate avengers ) and the JL Immortal movie.
Eh, somewhat. The tunic is in the right direction, but that's the only article of clothing he wears. In the place of the classic Goblin hat, as I said, is just long, messy, purple hair (think Heath Ledger Joker.), and he doesn't have gloves or boots on. 6 fingers and 2 toes.
Also, it isn't a costume. He morphs into the Goblin like in SMaHAF and Ultimate Spider-Man.

I feel as though you missed the point of the question.
When I refered to stuff that you were cheated out of, I mean things that were set in stone and were ready to happen, but the plug got pulled last minute. You did have 3 good examples like Spectacular not having a Season 3, every good idea for an F4 movie being flushed down the toilet by FOX, and Spider-Man 4 getting canned in '10, but the rest seems like small, nitpicky stuff or just your own ideas for stuff that you might have liked to see, which is a different topic all together.
Sorry if I come off as being kinda pushy, but as I said, you kinda missed the point :/
Also, I know that you might have a different view than I do, which is fine, but I, for one, am extremely thankful that Justice League: Mortal didn't happen (not that the actual Justice League movie was any better...).
The overall concept is decent, but there are a lot of problems with it (Batman being the one that kills Maxwell Lord and not Wonder Woman, Talia al Ghul being in the movie for some odd reason, the terrible casting, etc.). Also, it's been stated that the same company who did the special effects for Green Lantern was originally gonna do it for Mortal. Also, it was announced at the same time that Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers were announced, so poor timing on D.C.'s part. At the end of the day, it woulda been better to just leave the movie to rest.
I had an idea for the Green Goblin (this can be applied to any of our series'.).
Basically, Norman Osborn develops split-personality, and when his Green Goblin persona is talking to him, the camera view of him becomes like Two-Face from Arkham City where it shows both sides of Norman's body, with one being normal, the other looking absolutely crazy and with a green light shining over it.
Also, depending on which side of his body the camera is facing, his voice will change given that side (his normal voice on his normal side, a more growly voice on his Goblin side.).
Well, you kave to be dedicated to the writing, first off. I'm not the poster child for it myself because I'm, like, 3 months late on the first Lizard story in A Puff of Responsibility. Putting that aside, tho, don't end up like me and slack off.
In terms of planning, you have to come up with a good concept and see what fits. That's how I pulled The Call for Order or Destruction and A Puff of Responsibility together (if you read the original concepts I had for both stories, you'll see that I've come a long way since 2015 when I started planning on writing.). It took me, like a whole year to get to the final product of what eventually became The Call for Order or Destruction and, like 3 months to finish the touches on what became A Puff of Responsibility.
Essentially, I was gonna have Tim (his last name at the time was what his maiden name is now, Johnson.) be taken to an alternate Earth-982 by his mother (a woman whom looked strangely like Mothra.), get dropped off at the Parkers' home, and eventually be killed by an assassin who was like Gigan. Tim would eventually need a blood transfusion as a child from Peter, thus leading him to become the new Spider-Man years later.
I don't wanna get too much into it because I'm not overly proud of it, but needless to say, I went back to the drawing board and completely re-did everything from the start to get it to what became the final product.
I saw that and am using it as sort of a "guide" for my series bible I'm doing on Sensational Spider-Man, though I'm not copying stuff directly from it I'm just using a similar format to it and the Batman: TAS series bible (which you should also check out!).
It said something about imagining the James Cameron saga as a 30+ hours blockbuster with tons of awesome action scenes, well-developed storylines, etc. That's what TAS is. I found it funny since it caught me off guard, I was interested in the James Cameron saga for a moment but then they tricked me. :P Those sly, sly writers...
I had three ideas for Hobgoblin. He's either a saboter on the employ of Osborn,a member of the order of the goblin who's been subjected to oz and uses his newfound powers to take revenge on those who wronged him or a merc in the service of Tombstone/Kingpin. The idea to replace him with Jack isn't all that bad.
I'm thinking of making Big Man/Mr Big the leader of a crew of bank robbers (Marko,Schultz and Mason),Rhino a bouncer at the "Hard as Nails" club before his wife is killed by a super villain forcing him to become the rhino, Beetle into a sympathetic villain and a Vulture into a mutant/mutate. What do you think?
Essentially, it's the Alex Ross design, except it has the Superior Spider-Man 2nd costume logo on the front, and it has dark blue streaks going down the arms and legs, akin to the various highlights on the "canvas" areas of the costume back during the earliest Steve Ditko days.
But why Thoomes has always been portrayed as a scientist not a gang leader? Drago is a criminal who stole the vulture name , the scavenger motif fits him more. I know that in homecoming it was adrian but that was one of my complaints with the movie, i just can't see adrian doing that.
We've had this talk before; it's a different kind of Vulture. Not every iteration of the characters we include in our series has to be based on the comics, you know. Maybe we can have Drago be an assistant to Toomes alongside the Tinkerer who takes over the remnants of Toomes' organization.
I imagined that here, he wouldn't be a reluctant hero so much as he'd be a nervous hero.
As said before, Peter idolizes the other heroes in this world and strives to be like them. The only issue is that one he becomes like them, he's nervous because he doesn't know what he's doing. He wants to be a hero, but he's scared that he'll mess up being a hero.
I feel that as the story progresses, it should get darker, gradually developing Peter from an over-excited amateur to a hardened hero who understands the risks of what he does, but does it anyways because, on top of it being his responsibility, helping those in need feels good to him.
So, no. I've never considered Peter to be a reluctant hero because he just does what he does to get the job done. It gets stressful and overbearing at times, sure, but every man gets to that point at one time or another in their lives.
Does not remove the fact that during his 50 plus year history he has been almost always portrayed as a reluctant hero motivated by guilt.
Yes he would strive to be like other heroes but no because he wants to he only wanted to be popular/have money.
That's a good idea but besides the release of being spider-man peter never enjoyed being a hero. His girlfriend died,he lost his daughter, he waas buried and thought dead,ect. Even in the earlier days he gave more bad luck than 20 black cats in one room.
Okay but the guilt thing is one of peter's main motivations like Batman is Vengeance. Maybe we can have uncle Ben die halfway thru, at the beginning Peter wants to be a hero out of selfishness but ignores a carjacker that kills uncle ben to go to the ferris fight and instead of iron man's intervention he realizes that ben died because of him causing him to quit before the final fight.
I also don't think we should do an infinity war adaption. MAybe a return of the burglar storyline.
Ben would die halfway trhru the series becase Peter decided to battle Vulture instead of something small like a carjack. And since I don't really want iron man's involvement to be as deep as the film,this would take the place of iron man taking his hit away from him in having Peter retire. Untill he feels that he's the only one that can stop vulture from robbing an Quinjet.
Also I don't really think a should do an adaptation of Homecoming or really any of released Spider-Man films. Nor Infinity War. The series doesn't really have the pacing of a series otherwise feeling like a streched out film
Let's instead use Homecoming as a vague guideline for season 1,base 2 on the Cameron script and then let's try to do some new things.
A mix between MJLSm and Spidey with some daredevil influences. Also peter would have only taken the spider-man mantle at the end of the first season. There would have been prototypes of some of spidey's most well known enemies as well.
I'll take my series idea and plant it into another series of my own title of choice. This idea was something I've had in mind for a while and I feel as though it's getting changed around too much from my original vision.
To be fair, tho, all things considered, you could have told me that you had an idea for Peter Parker in mind originally. I would have gladly done something else with my idea.
So, as the series starts, Peter's operating as a vigilante but is the Masked Marvel?
Sounds legit, but if he's supposed to become Spider-Man by the end of the first season, wouldn't that make it the series finale, considering that Smallville ended with Clark Kent becoming Superman and Gotham is supposed to end with Bruce Wayne becoming Batman?
Seems like a pretty short series, unless you want to work it in as a prequel to any of your other ones...
Untill the season 1 finale, Peter operates under the Masked Marvel Alias butafterward he becomes Spider man.
After he takes the mantlethe series will continue for 2 seasons dealing with this Peter's early struggles. But I could always have him take another mantle at the end of season 1 and only take the spidey one after season3's finale. This is since I think shows like Gotham and Smalvile drag a bit too much.
It could be a prequel toTNAOSM since that show was always meant to take place during Spider-Man's married years.
I'm kinda at a crossroads for how I should make the characters look for the LEGO A Puff of Responsibility series/movie verse.
On the one hand, I made those decals for Spidey's original costume a while back based on the story, and LEGO recently released the Powerpuff Girls minifigures for the 9th wave of Dimensions (I've been meaning to pick them up but haven't had the time.), and they're supposed to be coming out with a Mojo minifig sometime in the future...
My problem stems from the fact that I'd like to take advantage of what I have and what's avaliable out there right now, but on the other hand, the PPG stuff is the only stuff that LEGO has done thus far based on Cartoon Network original series' (not counting Teen Titans GO! and Adventure Time.). In this instance, it'd be better to create custom minifigures based on the Cartoon Network characters and stuff, 'cause I can do that with just painting and decals.
I've also thought of a few running gags I could put in the series as well.
One of them is that every morning Peter swings to school. However, when he arrives, he always has to take his costume off in a shower and vice versa when school gets out and he goes out into Townsville. (note that this is based on a personal experience of mine.).
Another running gag I thought of is that Bubbles always tries to mimick Peter's quippage in battle, but her quips are so bad it makes everyone, even the villain, cringe, which, ironically, allows the heroes to defeat the villain because Bubbles' joke was so cringeworthy.
Exactly. At some point, after Peter explains why he does the quips (to alleviate stress/to distract the enemy.), Bubbles takes it into consideration and wants to try and alleviate some of the stress she experiences in the heat of battle (if you've seen the original series, you'll know that Bubbles gets scared quite a bit.).
I mean, yeah, it's not 100% faithful 'cause I took a buncha liberties with some of the stories and I combined elements from TAS and Ultimate, but I feel that if you were to look at, say, the majority of the Season 1 and 2 episodes, there's definitely a Lee/Ditko or Lee/Romita vibe to it.
I essentially did something along the lines of what Spectacular did but I tried to take less liberties than the aforementioned series.
Some smaller elements. I like how you made Professor Harras Peter's music teacher as a reference to the Spider-Man theme song. I was actually thinking about doing a similar thing in APoR to explain how the Spidey theme came to be.
Well thank you i'm really proud of the easter eggs i think on including. For example in the mystery episode Mirage is mentioned as the guy that developed the Hologram tech since Beck isn't smart enough. Anything else?
I also decided to not neccessarily make the girls weaker, but rather, they go easier when they're locked in combat with Spider-Man's enemies. I did this so that Spidey and the girls can seem to be more on even footing with one another. If the girls were about as violent as they were in the original series, they'd just beat the shit outta Spidey's enemies in less than 5 seconds, thus negating the need for Spider-Man at all.
In terms of them being violent, I imagined that as the girls got older, they'd probably become far stronger, and thus, would need to be more mature with their powers and stop unleashing full strength on the likes of, say, Mojo, and that they'd save their full strength for battling giant monsters and whatnot.
I even said in Chapter 12; the only power that Peter has that comes close to rivaling anything the girls can do is his Spider-Sense.
Giving Peter a super-powered girlfriend this early in the game is intended to add to the impact for when Peter's identity is finally revealed to the girls. Blossom would see it as deception and/or betrayal that he would keep this from her.
On an additional note, Irresponsible's original draft, to me, felt way too messy. It was my first venture into what I consider to be the conventional way to make a LEGO Spider-Man series (ala; make it a hybrid of the movies, Ultimate, and whatever other kinda re-imagining you can think of so long as it isn't directly based on the 616 comics.).
Irresponsible's OG draft has many good elemnts. For example I liked how you took kingpin out early in the game and then had Mister Negative become the main crime boss, how there's good leadup to goblin and making Demogoblin Norman's clone was genius.
I'll see if I can try and include some of those original elements in The Evil That Men Do and The Final Chapter, particularly Demogoblin being Norman's clone as well as making Mr. Negative the primary crime boss during my adaptation of Planet of the Symbiotes so I can introduce Anti-Venom.
To be honest, this suit looks far superior to the original costume. My only gripe would, surprisingly, have to be the front logo. As cool as it looks, that tinier logo from the original suit really grew on me.
One day, Dee Dee is messing around in Dexter's lab (as per usual.) when she comes across a new invention of his; a radioactive ray emitter. She presses the button to activate it and watches the beam of pure radiation come to life in front of her. But then, a spider lowers itself into the ray, becoming seethed with high levels of radioactivity. The spider lands on her hand, bites her, grants her the powers, the usual origin story.
Dee Dee then becomes Spider-Woman (her costume would reflect Spider-Gwen's.) and begins to fight crime.
Meanwhile, at the lab, Dexter is testing out a brand new harness complete with mechanical tentacles designed to safely handle radioactive material. He tests the level of radiation that the arms can withstand in the same radioactive ray emitter that Dee Dee was messing with earlier. But something goes wrong and an explosion occurs, destroying the lab, Dexter's house, and killing Dexter and Dee Dee's parents.
Dexter survives, but when he awakens in the hospital, he finds that his mechanical arms have been fused to his body, and he goes mad, turning him into this reality's version of Doctor Octopus. He then dyes his hair from orange to black and changes his title from Boy Genius to Master Planner.
At this point, Spider-Woman's fights with Doc Ock are really nothing more than a sibling rivalry with the fate of Megaville at stake.
