5 Things to Love about Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been treated to positive reviews from almost everybody (92% of critics, 91% of users) and an average rating of 7.6 (which I think is a little low – I’m thinking 8.3) and man, is this better than The Amazing Spider-Man or what?  Here’s just five things I loved about Spidey coming home to the MCU.

Have comics on TV reached saturation?

I started this site way back when with the name “Comic Book Clog” because I liked the name, the imagery it invoked, but more to the point, it’s the way I felt about comics at the time.  For example:  to follow Batman, you had to read all of the Batman family books.  (I made a video about this an even longer time ago.)  Same goes for Spider-Man… and this is how it’s been for a long time.  Then it became that way for other characters and groups like X-Men, The Avengers and so on.  It became too much (both from a content and cost standpoint) and it pushed me out of a ton of books.

And now, I feel that it’s reached this critical point on TV.
