Spider-Man can be a real jerk. Did you know that he one time punched a kid in the face? This should be no surprise, especially after villain Doctor Octopus stole his body. In Superior Spider-Man 13 he reaches a new low. Spider-Man blackmails Jonah Jameson who happens to be the mayor.
The plot of Superior Spider-Man 13 is that there were to be an execution at an off-shore prison that was soon to be shut down. Of course there was an elaborate escape attempt which involved the mayor asking spider-Man to kill the escapee. Long story short, Spider-Man blackmails John Jameson so he can keep the island for himself.
This is not the last time we will see Spider-Man do such a thing, I assure you. Whether embodied by Peter Parker or Doc Oc, Spider-Man has done his share of both ballsy and straight-up idiotic behavior. Like when he snapped and beat his wife. Sure, that was a “mistake”, or a “love tap” perhaps, or maybe he really wanted to do it. Regardless, Spider-Man seems to be a psychopath.
When Spider-Man blackmails Jonah Jameson, he shows him a hologram video recorded by one of his spider bots, which are little robots that watch all around the city. As sophisticated as the bots seem, recording in 3D and all, they seem to only project in blue. The idea of a virtual Spider-Man watching me while I shower or shoot squirrels with my pellet gun makes me sick.
