View Full Version : spidey inner monologue

is anyone else sick and tired of spidey's inner monologue?

specifically the multiple occasions where he whines on about 'this is it' or, 'i'm a gonner'

it seems that every other issue he gets the shit kicked out of him and then talks about how 'these will be my last breaths' 'love you Gwen' yadda yadda etc etc

normally happens whilst he's bloodied and bruised laying on the floor.

kinda takes the emotional impact out of it the fact that he always thinks he's going to die.

anyone else noticed this or at least know what i'm talkin about?

yeah I know what you mean, but isn't that his thing? Even in the cartoons he talked to himself the entire story. I wouldn't get rid of it, the thinking he's going to die part could be toned down, since we the readers actually know he isn't.

that's exactly what i mean, keep the inner monolouge, i'm all for it.

just this constant impending death, which your absolutely right, has no impact because we know he isnt going to die.

just a bit stale is all
