Episode 5: मकड़ी Man
Me: *Reading Amazing कल्पना #15* at a cafe*
Applejack: *Approaches me, with a worried expression* Hello Nick.
Me: Hello Applejack. What's wrong?
Applejack: *Sighs* Tomorrow is Applebloom's birthday, and she wants new superhero comics. But I don't know what hero I could introduce her to...
Me: Maybe मकड़ी Man?
Applejack: मकड़ी Man?
Me: मकड़ी Man, aka Peter Parker. He gained मकड़ी senses and super strength when he was bitten द्वारा a radioactive. He's fairly smart, as he created his own web slingers.
Applejack: Wow! He sounds mighty cool!
Me: He finally got his own series, starting with The Amazing मकड़ी Man #1*.
Applejack: But Applebloom likes there to be emotion in her comics. Y'know, they need to have a tearjerker.
Me: Um...Spider Man has a pretty big one, The Amazing मकड़ी Man #122*...The Night Gwen Stacy died. It literally ended the Silver Age of Comics.
Applejack: Yikes. She also likes something controversial, which others hate so that she may like it.
Me: The Clone Saga, which started with Web of मकड़ी Man #117*, which had introduced Ben Reilly, also known as Scarlet Spider. We found out that Ben Reilly was the real मकड़ी Man, and that Peter Parker was the clone. That pissed off so many fans, they made Ben Reilly the clone again.
Applejack: Wow...does he have anything modern she might like?
Me: Well...the Spiderverse* series that is still going on as of now. It has a bunch of मकड़ी Men and Women to battle the energy vampire Morlun.
Applejack: Wow! I'm totally going to buy मकड़ी Man comics for Applebloom! Thank you.
