    Spiderman is DEAD! ►►
    Venom is the VICTIM! ►
    We've seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That's right, I'm talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
    Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn - the Green Goblin - was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben's do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

    It might be a little cliche but in CinemaWins vid for spiderman 2 he points out a scene where Otto tells peter " if you keep something as complicated as love inside it can make you sick" and as we see after he tell mj that he "doesn't love her" his powers start failing and when he goes to show his love at the cafe scene his powers come back so yeah the reason might be love

    The Blonde Spiderman isn't Toby but the Fat one was Toby also I thought it was because it was depression, he his Uncle was Killed a father figure was killed and he couldn't tell the love of his life he loved her although that only sorta cut the powers from him when he was at his most sad, it came back when Doctor Octopus robbed the bank it came back because he knew his Aunt was endanger and infact his powers didn't work in the bank because no matter depression is still there his body and mind was more concerned about Aunt May and when his Aunt was safe it stopped working and when Mary Jane was endanger his power came and once Peter and Mary Jane loved eachother it came back to stay due to being reassured and knowing that his love loved him back

    What I'm confused about is in the more modern movies of spiderman eg spiderman homecoming, he had to artificially make his spiderwebs as if he didn't have any power? That doesn't make any sense because all the previous movies show spiderman being able to shoot webs from his own wrists. So does he really have any superpowers at all? Sure he has immense strength but with enough time and effort, anyone can have that ability to be strong.

    You know I just thought that he struggled with his identity, like should he be Peter or Spiderman. If he's not Peter he can't be with his friends and family and if he's not Spiderman he can't save the people. He saves the kid in the fire as Peter and I think the reason why his powers won't come back at that time is that he doesn't wanted them to come back. I think he wanted to do this as Peter Parker. But then when he talks to the fireman he learns that some other people died in the fire. And I think his facial expression just gives us his thoughts: If I'd been Spiderman, I could've saved them all.
    And then he has to save Mary-Jane again and he knows that normal Peter Parker can't do it, so he wants the powers to come back, because he knows that with great power comes great responsibility. And the problems of him accepting his fate are gone.
