JSP and I had a lengthy discussion about this storyline on the phone yesterday (don’t judge us). We both remarked about what a pain in the ass Peter has been in this storyline. No one asked him to go to San Francisco and now that he’s there he’s bothering Daredevil who has clearly stated that he didn’t want or need Peter’s help. Today’s strip is the best because Peter has never been more annoying – he is completely interfering with whatever Daredevil is up to! This would be analogous to walking up to a parked police car and tapping on the window non-stop while the cop inside is looking at something through binoculars. Peter is such a jerk.
We also agreed that only about 2 minutes have passed since Peter arrived in San Francisco.
I want Daredevil to say to Peter, “I don’t have ‘superpowers’? You dolt, I’m blind and I’m somehow swinging through a city just as well as you, I think that constitutes one of your so-called ‘superpowers’! Now back off, chum!”
Also, Spidey's web shooters aren't technically super powers any more than Iron Man's suit is, which is such an infinitesmal increase the overwhelming level of dickery on display here it's barely worth mentioning.
I'm totally judging you guys.
Peter is being a complete clueless, irresponsible bastard. Someone neeeds to remind him that with great power comes great responsibility. This includes trusting a super hero who has time and time again proven to be one of the good guys. However, as we mentioned previously Daredevil is partly to blame for swatting Spidey's armpit and kicking him in the gut instead of using his big boy words. They both seem to have the maturity level of a 10 year old. Sigh, another Monday-Friday goes by and nothing substantial happened or was revealed. Kingpin did absolutely nothing after talking mad shit on Sunday. Can't wait to see what happens next!
Usually the Friday strip is the good one. This sucks. You're right, NOTHING happened this week. Daredevil was supposed to die in one minute 70 hours ago.
