With great power comes great responsibility

That’s how it should sound right? Uncle Ben’s dying words of wisdom to a young Peter Parker, that’s how it was in the original Spider-Man film and more importantly that’s how it was in the comics. It’s simple, effective and resonates for the rest of Peter/Spidey’s adventures.

However, The (not very) Amazing Spider-Man wanted to do things differently. Fair enough I suppose, but I really don’t think you can change Spider-Man too much without starting to alter what made the character great in the first place.

This is example number 366 of why The Amazing Spider-Man is actually a bit shit, instead of Uncle Ben’s immortal line that we all know we got this instead: “Your father lived by a philosophy, a principle really. He believed that if you could do good things for other people, you had a moral obligation to do those things. That’s what’s at stake here. Not a choice, responsibility.”
