    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Just came from the theater after watching "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse".. We greatly enjoyed it. Also, stay for the post credit specials.

    Yeah, all the different parallel universe spiderman's show up. It was great. We all enjoyed it.

    As with marvel movies, you have to stay past the credits. Nobody in the theater left. Marvel shows extra stuff at the very end (post credits).

    DC is starting to catch on. I finally gave Justice League a spin and they had a funny moment between Superman and Flash at the end after a brief fade to black. Although, it was not after all the credits roll.

    Baby steps, I suppose.

    All of this does bring up a good question for Barry.

    Barry,

    Any backstory about the multi Spider universe? All of these parallel spiderman's ?

    JJJ: This is the Ultimate solution: For Spider-Man and for those watching Arrow/Supergirl and the Flash.

    In the early 1940s DC introduced many superheroes, including the Arrow, Flash, and Green Lantern. But by the end of the 40s they faded away due to bad sales. Of course comic characters do not age and needed to be remodeled every generation to fit desires of current readers. For example, Captain America no longer fights Nazis. And every hero was white, we finally have diversity.

    In the late 1950s DC decided to revamp these characters and very successfully brought them back as modern, up to date but different characters.

    They did not expect that the old fans wanted to know what happened to their original characters, so DC created Earth One and Earth Two. The original characters were on Earth Two and the recent ones are on Earth One. From 1963-86 year the older Justice Society (Earth Two) and the new Justice League (Earth One) teamed in an adventure (which would be labelled a “crisis”. Many more Earths were added giving them a Multiverse, which you see on those TV shows. (And they told us there will be a “crisis” next year.) Nowadays, DC redoes its entire Universe, every few years, giving new origins and backgrounds to familiar characters.

    Marvel now is a Multiverse too. Sales were declining at Marvel and they needed new ideas to boost sales. While they kept their original characters because they sell, they introduced the “ULTIMATE” Universe, in the year 2000 (35 years after DC did it) with new updated modern characters including this new Spider-Man. There are multiple Earths at Marvel too. So Spider-Man (Peter Parker) can die in one Universe, but he perfectly healthy in another. In 2015 they sort of combined the Universe, but left room for more Ultimate stories.

    Seriously, the problem is that characters don't age. Peter Parker is a teen-ager who still remembers the Viet Nam war. 60 years of continuity is difficult for new readers to catch up on and, of course, becomes silly and inconsistent with characters who do not age.
