We've seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That's right, I'm talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn - the Green Goblin - was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben's do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

    I honestly thought everyone already knew this stuff just by watching the movies alone 😂 but I guess not.

    What If peter always had ptsd like since his parents died and therefor his powers and all other marvel super heroes were hallucinations of to many anti depressants?

    ORIGINAL SPIDER MAN WITH TOBY MAGUIRE WAS THE BEST *YOU CAN'T CHANGE MY MIND*

    it was guilt, not depression that made him lose his powers, guilt too can have physical effects on the body as well
