So do I


NoddyZar

I would too, but I'd become a supervillain.


Parabola1313

Calling it; Yuri's gonna become The Punisher.


WallWreckingWretch

Not sure about it. Wraith is a comic book character already established in the past, not an original character from Insomnaic Games. Interestingly, Wraith and Spider-Man's story involves them working together/separately to take down Anti-Venom, Black Cat, Mr. Negative, Green Goblin, Hammerhead, Tombstone, who are very relevant to Spider-Man Ps4 now/may be relevant in the future


Parabola1313

I have no idea what Wraith is, I'm just assuming Insomniac had rights to use all the Marvel characters, lol.


JustinJTX

Insomniac belongs to Sony, and every Spider-Man related character is owned by Sony, so it's possible for them to use venom or sandman but not Deadpool.


puffthemagicaldragon

Sony owns the Spider-Man movie rights but they do not own the rights to every Spider-Man character, for gaming or in general. Marvel owns Spider-Man. This is a Marvel licensed game made by Sony so they absolutely could've used Deadpool but it would probably feel out of place with the story they gave us. Besides that I'm sure Marvel would have some restrictions on him now with him being a major franchise. Taskmaster isn't exclusively a Spiderman villain, but his inclusion made sense for the challenge mode.


JustinJTX

I stand corrected but I did some googling and from what I know, Marvel gave them the choice to choose any character from Marvel’s catalog to work on but they had to create their own story that was not linked to an existing property.


Mr-Potz

More or less, I've seen interviews where insomniac were apparently checking in with marvel the whole way just going "do you mind if we do this?" And there wasn't a single thing they said no to


puffthemagicaldragon

Yeah and that's where Sony owning the movie rights likely played a role in Insomniac choosing Spider-Man for the game. They say Sony didn't force them at all but i find it hard to believe they didn't see the easy way to further promote their movies


OtakuDragonSlayer

Who the heck is Wraith?


NoddyZar

Yuri's comic persona. Just look up "Yuri/Yuriko Watanabe comics" or "Marvel Wraith" if you're curious.


shadowmage1299

Vigilante super I don’t remember who the original was, but yuri became the new wraith after getting fed up with police corruption. One of her first acts as the wraith was murdering tombstone IIRC


OtakuDragonSlayer

NGL, he low key had it coming


16bitSamurai

I honest don’t think Yuri does anything wrong by becoming wraith and is probably less corrupt than most NYPD officers even as wraith


SupermanLegion

“Less corrupt”? She strings up mutilated bodies on top of skyscrapers with caution tape and leaves clues and stolen psychiatric records behind hinting at her own mental instability as justification. That’s some Batman Arkham-level crazy.


smileybob93

Isn't there only a body at the last one from the hitman? The rest are just the spots where his victims died


SupermanLegion

Yeah but then she also shot up a hammerhead base and vowed to continue her murder rampage. Also worth noting is she “killed” hammerhead and was suspended from police service.


OtakuDragonSlayer

Wait she did that to civilians!?


16bitSamurai

No she did it to one person who killed a bunch of innocent people


OtakuDragonSlayer

. . . . . wait that’s it? I mean she definitely still needs to be arrested for murder bud doesn’t seem that bad


16bitSamurai

She killed one person who was a hit man that killed many civilians. I see nothing wrong with that


SupermanLegion

No one is above the law. You don’t just kill people because you’re mad. Plus you’re forgetting her mad-shooter rampage at the one hammerhead base and she seemingly killed hammerhead himself. Note how immediately afterwards she was suspended from police service pending investigations.


16bitSamurai

Oh no she tried to kill a gang leader during a raid on his base.


16bitSamurai

Also I’m looking at this from a superhero world, not a real world. Cops in real life are terrible and are a discussion I’m not going to have rn. And you say it’s because no one is above the law but Spider-Man is literally above the law. It’s illegal to be a vigilante


SupermanLegion

I agree on Spidey. But I don’t use him as the pinnacle of moral compass, but he also doesn’t kill people. He leaves them to be judged fairly for their crimes. There’s a HUGE difference there. Once we say it’s ok to kill bad guys on the spot, then we become as bad as the bad guys. We win by being greater. Ya know, the tag line to the game? And my understanding is that civilians can stop crimes in progress if they have the ability to do so safely, but I’m not 100% on that.


16bitSamurai

I have always disagreed with the “kill a killer thing” So killing Hitler makes you a bad person? Sounds wack to me. There are many people who the world would be better off if they were dead


NoddyZar

God, I hope Peter manages to save Yuri to some degree. I got very attached to her despite knowing she'd betray him. Then again, the Parker luck track record doesn't spell good things.


Capconman

We don’t know if Gwen dies in this universe


spiderknight616

We don't know if they even know each other. There's no mention of her and from the photos and dialogue it seems Peter-MJ-Harry was the main trio


Capconman

They could make her younger and have her be in Miles’ story


NoddyZar

I think that would probably be the best way to include her.


KingJenko

She doesn’t belong in there though, Miles has his own love interests and doesn’t need Peters leftover characters.


Capconman

I mean Miles has had Gwen as a love interest, just Gwens from different universes


KingJenko

Yes, in a brief limited series. Spider-Gwen is a solo character and requires alternate universes to even work properly.


BigChung0924

wasn’t miles asking peter for romantic advice at the end? could have been talking about gwen


RX0Invincible

Probably not since the Green Goblin doesn't exist yet


thejmoneyman

One of the writers for the game actually confirmed a while back that Gwen Stacy is alive in the PS4 universe Edit: it was actually the Insomniac Twitter https://mobile.twitter.com/insomniacgames/status/1025526915384324096


DruTheDude

For now...


BenNevil

That doesn't mean she's alive. She can't be dead if she doesn't exists :p


chrisghrobot

Oh Lord this must mean miles is getting a love interest or Peter is having another love interest.


Earthmine52

Actually Gwen was his girlfriend in college. He never had any relationships in high school besides maybe Betty Brant.


SnorlaxMotive

Which was really questionable because I don’t think we ever learn how old she is and Pete was in High School


Earthmine52

Exactly.


Radioactive_Hero

We could infer that Betty was a bit older than Peter since she lived by herself and dropped out of school. They got together in ASM #7. And since Peter graduated in issue 26 or 28, Peter was most likely 15 and Betty was probably 18.


mariobros2048

In early ASM Betty was younger the Peter, she dropped out of High School to work at the Bugle because she needed money.


rustphase31

They bring this up in Spectacular Spider-man show iirc


SOULSLAYER547

**Deep breath** *Mom is becoming shitty and egocentric, dad was barely there and we haven’t spoken in years, uncle died of pancreatic cancer, high school girlfriend treated me as if I myself was dead, my best friend died three years ago in a car accident and I still feel responsible and consumed with guilt.* *Also I lost my job due to the pandemic and I’m on unemployment wondering when life will at least pull my hair while it’s fucking me.* Can I please just have Spider-Man powers? I swear I’d do right unto others. Having a life shitty as this one makes or breaks you.

Pete could be stupid rich if he sold/licensed merch through anonymous means such as bitcoin. He’s smart enough to figure that out.


meme_abstinent

Responsibility though, and that would be exploiting his abilities. Through his natural luck though without Spidey he’s poor


Un-Superman

Yea, Parker Industries was all too fleeting. I don’t think anyone was looking for an Iron Man clone, but with Miles taking over street level duties as he comes into his own, Peter could have grown into a role taking on more national and even omega level threats. They touched on that but I guess it wasn’t meant to last. I really wonder if they just don’t know how to write Peter that way.


chrisghrobot

Yeah I realized that since miles is spiderman too Peter can actually relax for once in his life and enjoy his life without spiderman getting in the way all the time.

Shisuka

Not gonna lie, I think it was this game that made me interested in white/silver hair women in game <3


thewallsofjer

Yeah, this game did well in the character designs and art direction. Cosplayers would typically wear perfectly white wigs or a very shiny silver wig which makes it a bit too perfect whereas in this game you can see shades of gray/white/silver that lean more in the darker side hence feeling more "natural" and attractive I suppose. ​ Edit: Typos and Missing words


fallen_axe_shay

What about the ashen haired girl Ciri mate? * Sad Geralt Noises *

TheSpider12

You know how bad Insomniac version of MJ is when people favor Saber over her lol


thewallsofjer

I actually like their take on MJ. It was fresh and she was no longer the usual Damsel-in-distress Girl-Next-Door MJ we knew. She reminds me a lot of the MJ of MCU in terms of street smart and spunk. The added layer of being an ex-girlfriend was an extra touch of freshness especially with an IP that has so much stories under its belt. I would have love a call back to the "Go get 'em, Tiger" sure but I do love Peter working out an awkward talk with his proactive, empowered ex. ​ But those stealth missions were a tad bit too much


TheSpider12

You should read some 60s-90s comics to know how great a character MJ is compared to whatever we got in this game or the MCU.


thewallsofjer

That MJ is revolutionary, no doubt. I've only read a couple during that time and Felicia or Sable won't compare to that MJ. I guess I was referring more to the more recent MJ from the Raimi movies, and "recent" iterations in the comics (brand new day, 2010s).


TheSpider12

Raimi's MJ, while not a perfect portrayal, has a lot more similarities to the comic MJ than this game MJ or the MCU MJ ever does. People think because she screams while her life is in danger (duh!) she is automatically nothing more than a damsel a distress when there are so many heartfelt moments in the films where it shows her character: the dream and the struggle of becoming a singer/performer on stage rather than just an eyecandy, or her loyalty to Peter despite of her frustration with him being Spider-Man getting into their relationship and the advances from other richer and more attractive men. If you read the early comics you will agree that is actually pretty accurate to the character MJ.


thewallsofjer

I guess I got homework to do. Thank you for this! I guess I might be more biased to "a new take" on a character than seeing something familiar.


TheSpider12

Well just go read the comics before One More Day then. If you are a big Spider-Man fan you should read them anyway. I think I have read 99% of Spider-Man comics out there (sans the Brand New Day ones and everything after that, which I dislike) and had a pretty good grasp of the characters like MJ. Just an absolutely incredible female character that deserves better treatment from the media.


thewallsofjer

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, most of my comic reading is in that time era you that you didn't follow. I guess we are on opposite spectrum ends but I will cross that bridge. I do agree MJ deserves a spotlight or a portrayal that captures her classic comics character. It's what fans loved about her to begin with.


arnathor

Oh god, the MJ in the 60s comics is drawn hot as hell but is such a weird 60s stereotype, constantly walking into rooms and putting music on to dance to, calling everyone “Dad” and acting like a character from Austin Powers. Gwen wasn’t much better. At least Betty had some realism to her and didn’t take too much of Peter’s bullshit before moving on (and it was bullshit, Peter Parker in the 60s bounces back and forth between having the weight of the world on his shoulders and being *incredibly* self-centred and oblivious to his friends and family).


chrisghrobot

I think the stealth missions become much more tolerable when you play them in a second playthrough.


Radioactive_Hero

I disagree. MJ was stripped of almost everything that made her a staple of Spider-Man's history. I hate how they made her the token journalist girlfriend always trying to get the scoop. Lois Lane, Iris West, Vicki Vale, and April O'Neil to name a few. It makes her generic. I know she was trying to be a journalist in the Ultimate Universe, but can they try to adapt Mary Jane in her fullest form. She's a much richer character than her Ultimate counterpart, or any counterpart for that matter. If you ask me, Peter and Yuri should've been the couple in the game. They have better chemistry, dialogue, and future character development than this version of MJ ever will with Peter.


thewallsofjer

I see that point especially if you're coming from a more general comic background. I guess they really wanted to keep that Daily Bugle connection alive. Initially weird to see MJ get a job that still felt very tabloid heavy.


BigChung0924

peter and yuri would have made sense, considering the VA’s are married in real life


thewallsofjer

Oh that's a fun fact. Interesting to see Yuri in a conflict-of-interest kind of situation between protecting Peter and her career.


Gustavo500

The only thing i dont like about this MJ is her complaining to Peter about how he "treated her like a baby" for worring about her going to dangerous places, Every single time you play as her you end up getting saved by Peter and every single death screen is her screaming when found out and shot to death. Like, I like her being brave but the only time she could take care of herself was when she got a stun gun.


thewallsofjer

Oh, wow, I didn't realize that, thank you. I guess one interpretation can be that it shows the room for growth when it comes to "taking matters into her own hands". I could see some scenes of her owning up to that recklessness and strive to be a better and resourceful "partner" but the dialogue on that needs to be on point. She can't exactly allow Peter's doubts to be true.


16bitSamurai

She’s completely fine. A lot of people seem to dislike the fact she’s not a sex doll.


Radioactive_Hero

Anyone who dismisses complaints about this MJ as "just wanting a sex doll" has no clue on what they're talking about. You don't know what you're talking about.


16bitSamurai

How so?


Radioactive_Hero

Everyone always jumps on the fact that she looks like a normal girl and not a pornstar. That's the worst argument I've heard and usually comes from people who don't get Mary Jane. Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and John Romita made MJ to be attractive. That's one of her core aspects. The beauty of MJ's character is that she is beautiful and smoking hot. So hot in fact that it's all that people see, and she herself wanted it that way. She put up a facade to hide herself from other people. To avoid being vulnerable. Her dad projected his problems onto her family and took it out on them. Her sister sunk to rock bottom and gave up on her dreams. That compelled MJ to never give up on her dream on being an actress. Her deep feelings of inadequacy and desire to be loved caused her to develop the party girl persona. The act made her fun to hang around, but also appear shallow. That all changed once Gwen died. Gwen was MJ's best friend so her death hit like a truck. She tried to comfort Peter as soon as she could. But he just got back from the fight with Norman so he wasn't in the mood. Peter basically tells her to fuck off and shoots down all aspects of her party girl attitude. But instead of leaving, instead of ditching Peter, she stays with him. Mary Jane Watson, finally stays idle. Her closing the door was her saying, "I won't leave you. I won't let you be alone." That rich, compelling, awesome character is now gone. No one will ever get the chance to see her. She has no character. No unique character traits. She's stubborn journalist girlfriend #85. When she left to Symkaria, I barely gave a damn. The only thing I cared about was the hope that she'd be gone so we can focus on more interesting characters like Yuri or Norman. I know she's better in the comics, but I shouldn't have to read a goddamn tie-in comic to finally become invested in a game character. I thought that's what the games were for. Anyone who just dismisses her as a "sex doll" is just ignorant of what the character did for Peter's character and world. Though I can't blame them. The first time they've been exposed to MJ was in the Raimi films. And boy did Sam Raimi fuck up MJ. She's been permanently damaged. By Raimi, Joe Quesada, other hack writers, the MCU, older games, and this game. It's sad. No one will ever see the real Mary Jane Watson(Parker.) Now all people will see is this whiny, useless Lois Lane rip-off. It's honestly sad.


16bitSamurai

There can multiple adaptations of a character though. This one being different doesn’t negate the existence of the one from the comics. I already knew everything you said and to say “I don’t know what I’m talking about” is incredibly presumptuous Adaptations change things. Just because you don’t like the changes they made doesn’t make them “objectively bad”


Radioactive_Hero

It kinda does when the general audience doesn't read comics. Several forms of media have influenced comics to change or rework itself for the appeal to newcomers who are only familiar with the movies or shows. The general audience only know the MJ they've seen from the movies, games, or shows. And none of them are really that great. Unless people just watch YouTube essays or skim the basic details on a wiki, PS4, the MCU and the Raimi movies are the MJ people think of. Kinda like how people just think of RDJ when they think of Iron Man, so writers poorly rework him as RDJ. There are plenty adaptations that are objectively bad. Anime adaptations, comic adaptations, game adaptations. The "Spider-Man" show that Disney has is objectively bad. Look at the show (if you can), it's a terrible adaptation of story arcs, characters, and is all around unpleasant. PS4 MJ, is not a good adaptation of Mary Jane. At least the one I want to see. Just because it's an adaptation doesn't mean I'm just supposed to be content with a mediocre character. Hell, throwing away the comparisons to her comic counterpart, she's not a good character. Yuri a better character than MJ is. And I'm willing to say that's a fact. I'll admit that I was presumptuous, but I still stand by what I said. You originally said that people are just mad that this MJ isn't a supermodel, and I said that's not the case. People are disappointed that this adaptation of Mary Jane Watson isn't good. It's fine, but as the slogan of the game suggests, it should strive to be greater. But, for me, I don't think it will.

There’s a reason its the most maligned story arc in all of comics, it regressed Peters character and only happened because the lead didn’t lien him being married. And no I wouldn’t make a deal with the devil to undo my relationship with my pregnant wife. My mom would be pissed if I did that. And I think most parents would, as they usually want happiness for their children and are willing to make sacrifices for it. And I especially wouldn’t do it if my mom was 95 years old like aunt may, and would probably die from falling over a week later

jasonthewaffle2003

Ya know, for a nerd, Pete can pull


Chrisxdxl103

Those woman after him doesn't have anything to do with luck, one of spider-man's lesser known abilities is that he can produce phenomenons on a much higher level than any human. I don't think he discovers the power till his mid 20's so until then he has it on full blast (depending on his mood) so that's why he attracts all these woman


Un-Superman

Hmm...sounds an awful lot like Spider-Woman/Jessica Drews pheromone power. I have to admit that besides the connection specifically to Silk, Ive never seen this ability mentioned for Pete before.


Chrisxdxl103

All spider beings across the multi verse have this ability, I'm not sure if 2099 spiderman does because he got his power through a different method but all bitten spider beings (or clones of bitten spider beings) do. The person who has it more powerful than anyone else is the spider queen as far as I'm aware


Un-Superman

I know Pete’s had a lot of different abilities, some that have stuck and a ton that havent, so I’d like to read the stories where this came into existence and/or was actually used. I’ve seen Jessica Drew use the ability on multiple occasions, but never Pete, Miles, Gwen, etc. Is there a particular run where this was stated and/or came into play?


Chrisxdxl103

I remember reading it when I was reaserching spider man, I can't remember where I read it, but I will go looking for it. I do know this power has been used a lot in fanfiction, but I read it in a power database for spiderman, I'll go looking for it for you to read yourself. I think this power of his is used under the radar, how do you think he got all those woman lol


Un-Superman

He’s a good guy who’s in great shape, has super powers, is funny, and has an element of mystery to him do to the mask. I don’t think you need the help of pheromones when you’ve got all of that going for you.


Radioactive_Hero

That's false. That's exclusive to Silk. Every other woman Peter has been with had nothing to do with pheromones. Where did you read that false information?

Well spider woman (Jessica drew) has actually used this ability on many occasions, it's not well known that all spider bitten cross species have this ability (yes I know Jessica drew wasn't exactly bitten but the serum her father gave her was made from irradiated spider DNA and according to the web of life she is a "bitten" Spider being). I read it in an official marvel database which I told the other guy and there was this thing in a comic I read years ago where she had an encounter with Peter and commented on the pheromones coming off of him. Like I said to the other guy I will go looking for these sources but they aren't easy to find seeing as ones on the internet and the other is from a comic book and to say I've read a lot of comic books is an understatement. Also to touch on the silk thing, that's not a pheromone thing, all spider bitten cross species have a connection to the web of life (the thing that gives them their spider sense), through this they have a connection to each other throughout the mulitverse, but because spiderman and silk were bitten by the same spider their connection through the web of life is much much stronger than any other.

I will admit that I worded my comment incorrectly. I do know that Jessica has a pheromone power, but that doesn't mean Peter has pheromones. I'm pretty sure that was just Jessica sensing the pheromones Peter naturally emits just like everyone else. Never has that been in Peter's power set. As for Silk, she and Peter have a natural connection. Since they're both bitten by the same spider, they're intensively attracted to one another via pheromones. This was said in the actual story when Silk first appeared. Due to the shared spider bite (and some Web of Destiny bs), Peter and Silk are instinctively attracted to each other's pheromones. This is stated multiple times. Besides Jessica who uses hers deliberately, Silk is the only one who is directly affected by Peter in this way. And it's not even really a superpower. Just some WOD nonsense.

Yeah, I suppose I did word my wrong, all animals have pheromones but with most things spider bitten cross species get an enhancement, so it might not strictly be a power to the point that Jessica's is but Peter, silk and others can definitely produce more than the average human, maybe the pheromones thing is Jessica's enhanced power, all spider cross species have their own unique power that can stem from something the others have just at a much higher level (Miles Morales venom strike is an enhancement on the static electricity charge used to stick to walls)

Looks like we found some common ground.

Yes looks that way, it's actually quite nice when you find common ground on the internet lol
