Split request[edit]

Can we please add the

tag?--88.104.134.194 (talk) 22:57, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

I assume you mean you want a set index article on all the characters that are Spider-Man within the Mainstream universe? Unless someone creates a consensus section on here. I (or someone else) can officially add the split template on the article. Jhenderson 777 00:32, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Can you please do that?--88.104.134.194 (talk) 08:29, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
There already is a set index of sorts here. I don't if that's worth linking to instead of creating a set index, but at the very least it's a good thing to use as a starting point if a set index article is created. Spidey104 14:18, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
However with recent news here http://marvel.com/news/comics/24751/miles_morales_moves_to_the_marvel_universe_in_spider-man their will be a much more distinguishing seperation of Peter Parker and Spider-Man.--88.104.131.9 (talk) 16:29, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
There already is a separation between Miles Morales and Peter Parker in how the articles currently stand. Spidey104 18:54, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I think it still isn't clear enough. No offence.--88.104.136.219 (talk) 17:39, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
No offense taken, but maybe you should explain why you don't think the separation is clear enough. You have only stated that you don't think it is clear and that's not going to sway any opinions. Spidey104 01:45, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────My thoughts on this is Peter Parker is the notable character as Spider-Man. Also I don't feel like the article title should change to "Peter Parker". Sure Parker has more aliases but the alter-ego (and his aliases) aren't as familiar or notable as his superhero name. Also when people think Spider-Man, they definitely think Peter Parker before Miles Morales. So the only option here is to maybe create a set-index article. I did think that the set-index article can maybe be called "Spider-Man" while this is called "Spider-Man (Peter Parker)" just like the Miles Morales article but then I realized Spider-Man isn't the only superhero name Peter used and then cancelled that opinion.

The Alternative versions article really was already the article for that on all the Spider-Men. But if you are wanting an article focusing on the maistream version (if it's worth having its own article. Since it's already a section on the Alternative versions article) then I recommend maybe "Spider-Man (set index)". I will add your tag to have more opinions on this though. Jhenderson 777 21:31, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. It looks like my IP has changed but I'm still the same guy. Thanks for adding the tag.--88.104.141.99 (talk) 21:57, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
I oppose. Peter Parker is the original Spider-Man. I don't think making a page for Peter Parker and a separate one to mention all the other versions of Spider-Man is a good idea. If someone will look for "Spider-Man", he'll probably look for Peter Parker, not for an index of all Spider-Mans ever. TVShowFan122 (talk) 12:30, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree with TVShowFan122 that the average reader will be searching for the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man if they are searching for "Spider-Man".
However, I am not opposed to the creation of a set index article. This article would not change names and have a link at the top to the new article, which would probably be titled "Spider-Man (set index)". See Green Goblin (set index) as a reference for how the new article could be formatted, and this for a start on what information would be included. Spidey104 17:54, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Can we create the set index article then please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.104.129.16 (talk) 22:48, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Sorry. I forgot to sign.--88.104.129.16 (talk) 22:54, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

We need to remember that things are All-New All-Different now though. While just a few years ago another Spider like Miles Morales would hardly be search for things change.--88.104.129.16 (talk) 17:55, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Things do change, but we cannot predict how things will change. If things change enough to warrant this split it can be done in the future. Currently it is not warranted. Spidey104 02:25, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
I think we should wait until the new comics come out before we decide what to do.Iady391 (talk) 16:27, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Is there anyway for this discussion to skip the 30 day limit from the archive bot and stay open until around October time when the new comics come out? Iady391 | Talk to me here 15:53, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

I strongly oppose this just as I would splitting Batman. Public consciousness is clear that Peter Parker is the main Spider-Man, and who people mean by "Spider-Man", though the successors also deserve mention.Zythe (talk) 14:06, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose split. Peter Parker has been Spider-Man for 53 years. The fact that others have taken up that name at times, isn't relevant, nor some far less popular alternate version. Dream Focus 16:46, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 3 external links on Spider-Man. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 15:35, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Enemies Request[edit]

There is no real indication as to whether the enemies listed in Spider-man's rogues gallery are minor or major. How many issues beyond the first appearance must a character appear in order to become a major character? Are we only including characters which directly contribute to character development? Also, why not list notable characters Spider-man faced which almost killed him or those that challenged his intellect as well as his physique? — Preceding unsigned comment added by BrettWarr1 (talkcontribs) 20:24, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

It's very subjective. There is no specific guideline for who should be included and who shouldn't be included. If there's an enemy you think should be included make your case for them here on the talk page (please remember to sign your comments by typing ~~~~ at the end of your comment) and it can be discussed by many editors of whether that character should be included or not. Spidey104 04:13, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Alternate/Incarnations[edit]

Currently, part of the header reads "Separately, Marvel has also published books featuring alternate versions of Spider-Man, including Spider-Man 2099, which features the adventures of Miguel O'Hara, the Spider-Man of the future; Ultimate Spider-Man, which features the adventures of a teenaged Peter Parker in an alternate universe; and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, which depicts the teenager Miles Morales, who takes up the mantle of Spider-Man after Ultimate Peter Parker's supposed death.", but these (with the exception of Ultimate Pete) are not alternate versions of Spider-Man, as the link contained within it defines them. Instead, they would be classified in a different list, List of incarnations of Spider-Man. This should be fixed.2601:446:4300:A467:A1E7:A615:327F:2C8 (talk) 15:59, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Actually, 2099 and Miguel don't appear on either list. Argento Surfer (talk) 16:43, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 30 June 2016[edit]

Spider-Man's favorite TV show is Comedy Bang! Bang! (TV series). [1] (This should be added to the character's biography.)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: You have not provided a reason why that is encyclopedic information (e.g. if it is widely discussed in reliable sources). It seems like WP:FANCRUFT to me that does not belong in Wikipedia. nyuszika7h (talk) 16:04, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
