Hey Greg,
As with everyone else who has posted a question concerning Spectacular Spider-Man, I wish to both congratulate and thank you from the very deepest reaches of my heart for creating what is the best adaptation of a superhuman into any other media as well as the greatest show on television. I have several questions/comments that I really hope you will answer.
1. When One More Day/Brand New Day came out in the comics, I completely gave up on Spider-Man. It was such a terrible plot, with so many holes and destructive ideas that the character seemed to die in front of my very eyes. But then your show came along. It was so perfect that I had to pinch myself. So thank you for bringing Spidey back to me the right way. And PLEASE, don’t do anything like BND on the show, I know several good snipers.
2. I have been searching at least once a week to see if any episodes of Spectacular Spider-Man have been put up for purchase on ITunes. As of yet, they haven’t. But if they were, aside from making many fans happy, it would increase the profits of the show and make it more likely for a 3rd, 4th or 5th season. If you have any power to that extent, please use it.
3. Doc Ock has been ridiculed by Spidey many times for mistakenly calling him an “insect”, but on your show he uses “arachnid”, thank you from all the biology nerds out there.
4. I was absolutely blown away by the season 2 finale, and I cannot wait to see more Norman Osborn (Spidey’s #1 villain by far). I was wondering if you were thinking of giving him government status or power like he currently has in the “Dark Reign” storyline in Marvel Comics.
5. I realize that you won’t give out any spoilers, but I was wondering if you have some sort of hidden, future plans for Harry’s mom. She’s dead in the comics, so it crossed my mind that you may have a plan for her (Menace?).
6. In all official sources regarding Spider-Man, it is said that his webbing is several times stronger that steel, but in your show it is shown a substantially weaker. Hopeful he can make some upgrades to the serum and increase its strength.
7. Many TV series have gone on the air with their creators/producers harboring an idea for the series finale. Is this the case with you? If not, the death of Gwen Stacy seems perfect.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my queries. If you have any questions or comments unfit for your forum, you can contact me at mgarofalo19@q.com. Good luck with season 3!
(PS: Sorry if some of my questions are found in the archives. I looked through as many as I could, but you’ve been asked many questions.)

Greg responds...

1. Uh... thanks?

2. I hear the first season IS now available on iTunes. I don't use iTunes, so I don't know much about it. But that's what I was told. (And, no, I had nothing to do with it and have no power or control over ... well, anything.)

3. You're welcome.

4. Not in the short term.

5. I do have plans for Emily.

6. Maybe... but why would I want to let him do that?

7. Peter graduates high school.
