The Infinite Spider-Man Index

The Infinite Spider-Man is a series of mini-essays exploring Marvel’s options for the future of their most popular character.

Fair warning: as the character’s romantic life figures into many of these determinations, I spent an absurd amount of time dealing with the issue of whether Spidey should be married. Ideally, you’ll find that this leads to a consideration on other elements of writing and plotting modern superhero comic books.

This is currently a work in progress. Consider it the beta version with some impending much needed edits. If you notice many mistakes, bad links, typos, etc, let me know.
