Spider-Man Wasn't Here

All right, this is just bizarre. In order for the Vulture to make Spider-Man look like a wimp, wouldn't Spider-Man have to be there? The same goes for Jameson's claim, as Spider-Man wasn't even there to try to stop the Vulture, and therefore, had no chance to do so. So, instead of making Spider-Man look like a wimp, the Vulture merely made Spider-Man look apathetic to the plight of the rich. This goes for Jameson's claim as well, as the Webhead (why is he using a pet name for someone he hates?) merely didn't show up to stop the Vulture. Now, whether making Spider-Man look apathetic is worse than making him look wear is an entirely different debate.

Did anyone else notice that Peter wasn't sick at all for...oh, I don't know, the past week? He seemed fine until Mary Jane's bipolar disorder kicked in.

Sure, she may be sobbing and moping now, but just wait - one of these days, Peter's going to wake up in bed to see her ready to smack him in the head with a lead pipe.

Oh, wait...his Spider Sense can't detect lead pipes. Nice knowing you, Peter.

One stinkin' holdup, and Vulture is declaring victory? This is the WORST....CRIME WAVE.... EVER! C'mon, Drago -- what's next in your dastardly plot? Tripping a blind guy? Taking a girl scout's cookies? Jaywalking?????

This is sad.

JJJ's called Spider-Man "webhead" for decades; it's become a pet name when used by others, but a searing in-your-face burn when Jonah uses it.
I don't think Spidey's absence limits him to apathy...what about "busy"? "Yeah, I was in a death-trap in Dr. Doom's castle. Sorry I couldn't make it to the big party" or "One word: Galactus"

What happens when a superhero's normal person persona dies in an accident or something? Do the people who know tell everyone who they were?
