A Tale of Two Prowlers

A problem eight years in the making has finally arrived: Marvel now has two competing, nearly identical, and yet completely unrelated Prowlers kicking around New York City. It’s a weird problem, and I think Marvel has come up with a simple fix. Being one of the internet’s foremost Prowler fans, I felt compelled to point this out to everybody.

Marvel has offered various workarounds for awhile, but based on the current storyline in Miles Morales: Spider-Man, they’re apparently just going to barrel on through.

Miles’ uncle, Aaron Davis, is once again calling himself the Prowler.

Even though the original Prowler, Hobie Brown, is still around and working with Spider-Man.

Apparently that purple and green look is too good to pass up! These two images came from two different comics released the exact same day back in August. It was the most Prowler-heavy week in comics in years.

This is what happens when you crash universes together. It’s not a safe practice for anybody.

So how did we get here and where do we go from here? I’m glad you asked! Join me after the jump for A Tale of Two Prowlers.

Honestly, Into the Spider-Verse is a Masterpiece

It seems to be a quiet Monday here in henchman land. So how about enjoying the Honest Trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? This came out more than a month ago, and I’ve been saving it for a rainy day! Perfect!

They get really clever with this one, which is fun. Being creative is always rewarding and enjoyable. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is indeed a masterpiece. So we’ve got that going for us.

How Into the Spider-Verse Should Have Ended

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a true masterpiece and deservedly won that Oscar. So let’s poke some fun at it! Legitimately, at times, thanks to the How It Should Have Ended people!

Some good jokes there! Though if I can be that guy, a webline isn’t retractable, and Doc Ock needed time to repair the collider, which is why they couldn’t re-do the experiment that day. Though I did love the alternate reality Kingpin seeking revenge joke!

Also, if I haven’t made this clear enough, but I very much dislike the cafe tradition. Stop using your jokey versions of Batman and Superman as a crutch! You’re better than that! You’re funnier than that! Your Spider-Man jokes were great this episode!

Although I will admit the Into the Bat-Verse ending was pretty fun.

Let’s See That Great Into the Spider-Verse Scene in LEGO!

Remember that scene in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse where Miles Morales truly embraces his new Spider-Man persona? Set to that awesome “What’s Up Danger?” song by Blackway & Black Caviar? Of course you do!

Well the fine folks at Huxley Burg Studios have recreated it in LEGO form!

And if you don’t remember that scene at all, it’s conveniently available on YouTube! How’s that for nifty?

That’ll have to tide us over until Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out on DVD one of these days.

How Does Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Look This Damn Good?

There’s a new trailer for the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie, and it looks even more phenomenal than before!

That’s comedian John Mulaney as Spider-Ham, and he kills it! And Nic Cage as Spider-Man Noir! And just look at that trailer! I was skeptical about this whole thing back when it was first announced — because Spidey is in very good live action hands these days, and we don’t need a saturated market — but this looks funny and heartwarming!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out in December!
