I finally got to see ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ this weekend, and even after Stephen’s high expectations and build-up, it was a pretty phenomenal movie experience.  Having read the Spider-Verse comics (and being the kind of guy who remembers alternate realities better than the mainstream ones), I loved seeing Spider-Gwen and Peter Porker in action, and now I have to go and read Peni Parker’s stories as well.  They’re not my VERY favorite alternate Spider People, but they’re right up there, leading to today’s friendly neighborhood query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will always vote for the giant robot, making my answer Takuya Yamashiro, asking: Who is your favorite alternate Spider of all the Spiders in the Spider-Verse?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    As much as I love Peter Porker and Star comics, I always enjoyed the Spider-Man newspaper comic.
