Manifesto against Spiderman's Brand New Day - We want our old Spiderman back sign now

This is a manifesto against Spiderman's Brand New Day. It is adressed to Mr. Joe Quesada, Marvel's Editor in Chief. We have written it in two languages, English and Spanish, and we encourage you to sign our petition to have our old Spiderman back.

Йste es un manifiesto en contra de la reciente etapa "Un Nuevo Dнa" (Brand New Day) de Spiderman. Estб dirigida al Sr. Joe Quesada, Editor Jefe de marvel. La hemos escrito en dos lenguas, Inglйs y Espaсol, y os animamos a firmar nuestra peticiуn para traer de vuelta a nuestro Spiderman de siempre.

........

To the attention of Mr. Quesada, Marvels editor in chief:

We are a group of Spiderman comics' readers. This letter is about the new course taken by The Amazing Spiderman. We want to express our disagreement with all the changes made from The Amazing Spiderman 546 that opened the Brand New Day era, and we want to expose you all the reasons why the signatories to this letter have stopped buying Spiderman.

In the first place, we think that Mary Jane is the real heroine in Spidermans story. From the day in which she stood by a broken Peter who was crying Gwens death, we knew that she was not the thoughtless, crazy girl she pretended to be.
There have been writers who have treated her carefully and respectfully to tell us good stories in which she was as important as her husband. They wrote that kind of stories because they respected and loved Mary Jane, and they made an effort to tell us stories in which she played an important role.
You dont know how to do it; that is the reason why you have got rid of her. Your lack of talent and your inability to treat one of the best secondary characters in the history of comics have made you take the easiest way. If you made an effort to tell us good stories, you would see Mary Jane giving us the best in her.

Instead, you have given us Mephisto, and absurd character in Spidermans universe, who forces Peter and Mary Jane to take the most absurd decision in their lives: they sacrifice their love for an old-fashioned character who has been bothering us for a long time, except for Strazinskys years (you know, it is possible to tell good stories, isnt it?).
You also tell us that Mephisto has changed nothing (of course, he does not have the ability to do that, does he?) but their memories. So, Peter and Mary Jane are still married but they do not remember it. Therefore, if they had any affair with another person, they would become adulterers!
In addition, Mephisto becomes the winner. You know, we would not like our children to read that type of moral. You have also made Mary Jane a liar because of her secret pact with the demon.
You also promise to tell us what happened between Peter and Mary Jane in Amazing Spiderman 600, but you know, we already know what happened between them: they got married. Mephisto changed nothing but their memories, didnt he? So, whatever you tell us in Amazing 600 will be a lie.

Moreover, you tell us that there has been a gap in time. But the fact is that we like to read our comics, we do not like to know what happens in them according to your words in an interview.

All in all, your biggest mistake has been Harrys return and your future explanations promise about it.
You neednt do that. Harrys return belongs to that kind of stupid dramatic resource consisting of bringing dead characters back to life. Harry has nothing else to add nowadays.

You also say that this is not the best solution but that it will take Spiderman where you want him to be. We are not interested in your solution because you should know that the end doesnt justify the means.

Apart from that, you declared that veteran readers will get bored looking for incoherence in Spidermans history and you make nice promises to the new readers.
That is the point. You are going to tell us stories that have already been told, twice told tales. But this time, they will be told in a worse way. This is the reason why you encourage newcomers to read your new Spiderman.

This is the way you justify your lack of imagination and your deep contempt for veteran readers. You do not care about those readers who have kept Spiderman alive along the years; you are only interested in fans who do not know anything about Spiderman, fans who cant compare your new stories with the ones from the past. You only care about those readers who will be reading Spiderman for one or two years. Just the readers that you need to take profits from Spidermans films.

Meanwhile, you tell us no stories because you have nothing to tell. From time to time, you give us a brief story to explain your own incoherence. And you even dare to tell us that we will get used to it, just as if we had no criteria and could accept anything.

The signatories to this letter are not going to buy any Spiderman comic until the pact with Mephisto has been unmade; we will not read Spiderman any more until Peter and Mary Jane have been married again; we do not want to know anything about your new stories until Harry has gone back to his tomb.

Just one more thing Mr. Quesada; if you realize that The Amazing Spiderman sales are dropping dangerously, do not worry; you will get used to it.

A la atenciуn del Seсor Quesada, editor jefe de Marvel:

Somos un grupo de lectores de las distintas series protagonizadas por Spider-man. La presente carta estб relacionada con el nuevo rumbo que han tomado los acontecimientos de la serie The Amazing Spiderman, de la cual todos nosotros somos lectores. Queremos expresar nuestra disconformidad con los cambios que hemos podido leer a partir del nє 546 de la colecciуn perteneciente a la etapa conocida como Brand New Day y exponerle los motivos por los que todos los que respaldamos esta misiva hemos dejado de comprar The Amazing Spiderman.

En primer lugar nos gustarнa decirle que consideramos a Mary Jane Watson como verdadero coprotagonista de la colecciуn. Desde aquel lejano dнa en el que ella cerrу la puerta de la calle para quedarse con un Peter Parker destrozado por el asesinato de Gwen Stacy, supimos que aquella chica pelirroja, no era la loca atolondrada que fingнa ser. Autores anteriores supieron tratarla con el cariсo y respeto que merece y nos contaron muy buenas historias donde ella era casi un elemento tan importante como su marido. Eso es asн porque respetaban y amaban al personaje, y se esforzaban en contar historias donde desempeсaba un papel importante. Ustedes no saben hacerlo, por eso la han quitado de en medio. Su falta total de talento, su incompetencia total y absoluta para tratar bien a uno de los mejores secundarios de la historia del comic, les ha hecho tomar un camino cobarde y fбcil. Trabajen, esfuйrcense, cuenten buenas historias y verбn cуmo Mary Jane Watson darб de sн todo lo que lleva dentro, que es mucho.

En lugar de eso, meten por el medio una figura absurda, la de Mephisto, asegurando este personaje que no desea almas (їpero este mismo personaje, no solнa ir detrбs del alma de Silver Surver, o es otro Mephisto?), y con una incoherencia propia de quien no sabe quй hacer para escribir buenas historias, hace que Peter Parker y Mary Jane tomen la decisiуn mбs absurda de su vida, sacrificando su amor por un personaje obsoleto que ya estorba en la colecciуn desde la ъltima glaciaciуn, si bien Straczynski demostrу que se podнan contar buenas historias con la tнa May (їve como se pueden contar cosas buenas, si se quiere?). No contentos con hacer que los protagonistas de comporten como idiotas, nos dicen que Mephisto no ha cambiado nada (lуgico, pues no tiene ese poder), sino sуlo los recuerdos. Eso hace que Peter y Mary Jane sigan casados, pero no lo recuerdan. Por consiguiente, cualquier relaciуn que pudieran tener con terceras personas es un adulterio. Igualmente, Mephisto sale victorioso. El Mal triunfa sobre el Amor, cosa a todas luces ruin y despreciable, con una extraсa moraleja que no nos gustarнa que leyeran nuestro hijos, y todo ello a pesar del pacto secreto que Mary Jane hace con el demonio y con la promesa que le hace a Peter. Asн, usted ha convertido a Mary Jane en una embustera. Nos promete contar quй pasу entre ellos para el nъmero 600. Ya lo sabemos; se casaron. Mephisto no cambiу nada, salvo recuerdos, їno es asн? Por tanto lo que usted pretende contar es mentira.

Sin saber cуmo ni por quй usted nos dice que ha habido un salto en el tiempo. Lo sabemos porque lo dice usted, pero a nosotros nos gusta leer comics donde podamos saber quй ocurre por lo que se ve en el propio comic, no por lo que usted diga en diversas entrevistas. Lo mбs grave de esto es la recuperaciуn de Harry y la promesa de una futura explicaciуn. Eso ya lo tenemos nosotros. Se trata de la estъpida moda que han puesto en marcha incompetentes para conseguir golpes de efecto mediante la resurrecciуn sistemбtica de personajes muertos y enterrados. Harry no aporta nada aquн, ni ahora. Sуlo es una de sus cortinas de humo para que la serie avance entre la mediocridad y cada cierto tiempo explicar alguna incoherencia. Nos habla de que todo esto no es quizб el mejor camino posible pero que llevarб a Spideraman a donde ustedes quieren. No nos interesa lo que ustedes quieren porque el fin no justifica los medios, y mucho mбs importante que llevar a Spiderman a donde sea, es el camino para llevarlo allн.

Usted habla de que los lectores veteranos se aburrirбn buscando incoherencias, y promete golosinas para los lectores noveles. Exacto. Ustedes se dedican a contar malamente historias ya leнdas, ya contadas otras veces. Los lectores noveles no las han leнdo, claro, y por tanto animan a dichos lectores a disfrutar se la serie. De esa manera, ustedes justifican su falta total de imaginaciуn, sus pocas ganas de hacer un trabajo digno, y su desprecio total hacia los lectores antiguos. No les interesan lectores que duren, que mantengan la serie viva durante aсos, sino un tipo lector puntual, que no conozca bien al personaje y por tanto no tenga elementos para comparar, y que lea la colecciуn uno o dos aсos. Lo justo para sacar buenos beneficios de las pelнculas. Entre tanto, ustedes no cuentan nada porque no tienen nada que contar. De vez en cuando, alguna breve saga para explicar malamente sus propias incoherencias, y asн van tirando. Y encima tiene la desfachatez de decirnos que nos acostumbraremos, como si no tuviйramos criterio alguno y tuviйramos que tragar lo que nos echen. Los que firmamos esta misiva, no compraremos ninguna colecciуn de Spiderman hasta que no se deshaga el trato con Mephisto, hasta que Mary Jane no vuelva a estar felizmente casada con Peter Parker y hasta que Harry no vuelva a la tumba, de donde no tenнa que haber salido jamбs. Una ъltima cosa, Sr. Quesada, si las ventas de Spiderman disminuyen peligrosamente, no se preocupe. Se acostumbrarб.
