  8. my favorite issue of spider-man was when the sinister six attacked new york on a saturday during hanukkah and spider-man couldn't do shit about it.

  9. Being Jewish must've been a real conundrum for Peter Porker, The Amazing Spider-Ham.

  10. Peanut butter in my chocolate? That ain't supposed to BE. Damn Obama.

  11. The profundity of his stupidity leaves me stunned.

  12. Where to begin here?
    Since when is Peter Parker Jewish? Not even in the Ultimate Universe that's the case!
    And even if Peter was: This isn't Peter Parker!

    AND OBAMA? WHAT?!?

    WHAT?

  15. I'm pretty sure that Ben Grimm and Megneto are the only silver age Marvel characters who have been identified as Jewish.

  16. Not true, Ian. There was also The Blue Dreidel. Ah, but nobody remembers The Blue Dreidel anymore...

  17. I'm still working on "What-What In The Butt."

    Poor Blue Dreidel, doesn't even have a wikipedia page. Was he in the Avengers?

  19. "Being Jewish must've been a real conundrum for Peter Porker, The Amazing Spider-Ham."

    true, but consider, we don't eat human (generally), so yea, he wouldn't eat pork ie. himself.

  20. "true, but consider, we don't eat human (generally), so yea, he wouldn't eat pork ie. himself."

    Peter Porker was a spider that got bitten by a radioactive pig. He wasn't a pig anymore than Peter Parker is a spider. And that's one to grow on.

  21. Very good comments people. (Not sarcasm)

  22. Spider-Man is colour blind, obviously.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Blue Dreidel: A precursor to Red Tornado, perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Do we not consider Kitty Pryde to be Silver-ish Age-ish, Ian? Kind of?

    Do we ever have a real line on Peter's faith? I mean, it could BE Jewish, considering his creators and all.

  25. His funeral wasn't in a temple...

  26. Shabbos Chanukah is no different from a regular Shabbos. Although whether or not Spider-Man would be allowed to do anything to help is a very interesting question. I could see a way to justify it both ways, but I'm not an expert in the relevant laws.

    That said, he's a Gentile anyway. He just talks like a Jew sometimes because he was raised in Queens, surrounded by hordes of us. A lot of people in New York use certain Yiddish words and occasionally syntax for that reason.

    In general, I wouldn't assume that a character's a Jew if it isn't specified. The odds would certainly be against them, us being about 1% of America. And "Parker" is not at all a Jewish surname. Then again, neither are "Grimm" and "Pryde".

  27. This customer's comment is ignorant and irrelevant: The new Spider Man isn't Peter Parker, therefore his race and origins story can be whatever the writers want it to be. Personally I'm curious to see exactly what his connection to Peter Parker is, but that's beside the point.

    As for the mention of the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES somehow being involved in the new Spiderman comic, it's just to ridiculous to spend time thinking about.

  28. Lee's real last name was Leiber, pengo.

  29. buddhist nymph, you're a wee touch late, right?

  30. Exactly, Lugh... maybe `Pryde' and `Grimm' were altered too at some point. Preidler and Grimzburg maybe?

  31. Damn Obama with his African voodoo powers magicifying the Marvel team to add diversity to their heroes! How dare they! Next there'll probably be a black Green Lantern! And that's just silly! They'll probably try to sneak it by us normal folk by giving him a proper white name like "Stewart Johnson" or something. Damn liberals, thinking everyone is equal!

    Hm, did I overdo that joke? Oh well.
