Spiderman's new sidekick
Good idea or what was Marvel thinking?

What was Marvel thinking. Everything about this kid makes me want to go on a killing spree. His hair, his clothes, his expression, his name.
Spidey has been a solo act since day one. Sometimes he has a great teamup, but he's not the type to have partners and sidekicks and what have you.

Just no, we all ready had to deal with Bat girl, super girl and all the other 'side kicks' and now this one (Robin is cool though)?
What cult said and it looks like Static Shock, Shocked him and his hair is permently that way!

So what are this kid's powers? On topic...what the heck were they thinking? That was one of the things that always set Marvel apart from DC...the lack of the characters having sidekicks. And out of all the heroes they could have given a sidekick to first...they start with Spidey(my favorite Marvel character alongside Deadpool).

Spider-Man never needed one to begin with so why now?
06-28-2012, 11:35 PM
casue spidey is older and they wanted to do something special for Spiderman's 50 year adversary besides the ultimate spiderman meeting the real spiderman for the first time
06-28-2012, 11:36 PM
So Marvel is doin something that DC has done many a time over with like Batman?
I mean its all good and everything but you'd think that wouldve been like subject one for a new superhero or what not but oh well....hope they dont screw it up then.

According to the publisher, while Peter Parker was an unconfident nerd and outcast during this high school years. While Andy Maguire (homage to Toby?) is an outcast as well, he does not have any confidence problems. "Andy has a brashness, an edge, that Parker will find challenging, especially as he molds a potentially unpredictable teen who’s more powerful than he is". "This may make Spider-Man and Alpha seem less Batman and Robin and more Odd Couple."

"more powerful than he is" what does that mean exactly? Is he gonna be stronger because Spidey's in the 10 ton class, faster because spidey already has precog and superhuman reflexes, from what I've gleaned it just looks like he's good at energy projection but maybe it's going to be to a level where he can kill people if his power gets out of hand.
I don't have a problem with the sidekick, we've gotten years of Peter Parker and I will always love the character but like real life people grow and change so it will be great if that happens to Spidey but I don't want this to become too cheesy or for Spidey to take a back seat. It's up to the writers here.

This is going to be Marvel's Batman and Damian Wayne, except without the brooding (and good writing).

He looks corny, and his name does not suit him

08-21-2012, 01:34 PM

Spiderman fights collossus and illyana while the other avengers get a chance to run away, and I thought he was gonna pull off some trick like getting a piece of the symbiote and going crazy, but he had no trick. He just got beat up...bad.

that sidekick was a complete failure already lost his sidekick status and had his powers drained. 3 issues only, most sidekicks last longer than that.
09-28-2012, 10:17 PM
what does he even do
09-28-2012, 10:26 PM
Energy Projection: Andy can project a powerful energy blast which he can aim at will.
Super-Strength: Andy can increase his strength, being able to lift at least 1 ton.
Super-Speed: Andy can move at super speed, approximately at 88 mph.
Force-Field Generation: Andy can create a force field around his body to protect himself from impacts
