It seems that any time a comic book hero takes a new direction, the die hard fan boys that only leave their mother's basement once a week to buy new comic books come out of the wood work to get their hate on. Instead of finding things legitimately bad with the show, they fall back on, "this isn't anything like Spiderman!" Well, Stan Lee, co-Executive Producer, disagrees with you.
While many people facing the kind of trials Peter Parker did would behave much as he is depicted in the comics, many would not and it's refreshing to see a different take.
The team dynamics that others have complained about are also not unrealistic at all. Ask anyone in the military how well they get along with their coworkers.
This show is not perfect, few are. But it is very well done. The constant breaking of the 4th wall provides its own refreshing comedy as well as a great deal of insight into the inner mind of Peter Parker in an amusing fashion. Rather than taking away from the show, it adds to it. All to often, people take comic books too seriously and this reminds us that we shouldn't. If you need a real life hero, plenty of them exist; they wear dog tags.
