So cultural appropriation by cosplayers, etc. is okay if the character is Caucasian?

BTW, the reason given by Stan Lee for Spider-Man’s success as a character was that the hero was a teenager.

Someone doesn't know Marvel or Spider-Man or the Multiverse. Stan Lee and Marvel were always about equality. They were way ahead of their time.

The reason people relate to Spider-Man is that he has everyday issues just like everyone else.

There are many different people, races, and genders across the multiverse that become Spider-Man. There's even Spider-Ham. He's a talking pig lol.

I have some pretty old comics in my home all are in perfect condition, some people pay lots of money for those.

All those recent SpiderMan (and other superhero) flicks are rancid bastardized stinking piles of garbage/rubbish/trash. Let's save the Stan Lee legacy and put this hero into retirement.

Spiderham was one of my favorites as a kid in the 80s. I miss collecting comics back then.

Actually they are the reason he's come out of retirement. They're a lot more fun than the same old Spiderman stories that we've seen for decades.
