Who the hell cares when a character is created? 90's or not, a good character is a good character.

(Note: I'm only replying to this because I'm getting a little tired of the 90's = suck meme that has become a stupid-ass buzzword for something that sucks.)

The Spider-Buggy's gone rogue and tries to attack Spider-Man after he has a battle with some villain. Spidey beats it but notices a man in a swimsuit running away from the scene. Over in DC Atlantis, Aquaman gets attacked by marine animals wearing rabbit ear mind-controling devices. He defeats them and finds out about Spidey's problems so he heads to New Year City. They compare notes until a pair of big-ass tits on wheels with machine guns and catapults and mace shows up.

Next issue, Spidey and Aquay batle the big tits. They struggle but Spidey makes a slingshot with his webbing and send him and Aquay into the middle of the big tits. They discover Big Wheel and White Rabbit controlling and beat up Big Wheel. End issue.


Next Watchmen right there.

If history has taught me anything, we'll be hating the 00's soon enough. We always hate the previous decade for all the flaws we didn't notice when we were living it. Give it just a little more time.

And there'll be a lot to hate. But for some reason, the 80s always got a pass. Except for one extraordinary year ('85) the decade was just as crappy as any other..

Maybe I'd care what you said if Hobby was any good.

The whole appeal of Hobgoblin was the mystery... to both Spider-Man and the fans. That made him, in part and in my opinion at least, WAY cooler than Green Goblin. To reveal his identity to the readers is just lame.

the 90's really deserves it for the most part though. I mean when your two biggest Spidey stories are Maximum Carnage and the Clone Saga, it really reflects poorly on the decade. And let's not forget teen tony and the new "sexy" avengers.

Maybe this is an elaborate scam to take our minds off the fact that Roddy's not really dead! It was his twin brother, not him! But we're so busy arguing, we're not looking at that.

Very meta, Mr. Slott. Very outside the box.

Yeah, it's got some very negative moments but as bad as people say the Clone Saga was, Ben Reilly is generally well liked. And the Crossing and Teen Tony was a low point but the Heroes Return Avengers and Iron Man are well regarded. Hell, some people claim the Busiek/ Pérez Avengers to be the definitive run on the title. Mark Waid/ Ron Garney's original run on Captain America? That brought the character back from a very dark place (I'm talking Iron Cap, people).

So, yeah, there were some bad things about the nineties but there were also well loved moments. It was a time when Ka-Zar had a series that was actually liked. That in itself was amazing.
