[COMIC COMPARISON]: Spidey's relationship with the Avengers-- MCU vs. Comic!
(For those of you who have followed me long enough, you've seen something like this before. However I feel like I need to highlight these key differences, so I can have a post like this secured on my new account, and to alert the new followers. Anyways, getting into it...) -
[MCU Spider-Man]~ I'm sure you're all very aware of MCU Spidey's relationship with the Avengers, but here's a recap: Long story short, it's basically the end all be all to him. Having idolized these heroes, Peter jumped at his first chance to prove himself to become an Avenger. This is what Spider-Man: Homecoming is centered around. Now making his school life, acedemics, and friends his second priority, Peter focuses all his time into proving himself to be an Avenger-- sneaking out of the house whenever he can, and sending countless hoards of text messages to Happy Hogan about when his next mission will be. Being an Avenger is everything to him. At the end of the movie he decides he wants to stay on the ground a little longer, but this was retconned half a movie later when he officially becomes a member. -
[COMIC SPIDER-MAN]~ Unlike the MCU version, comic Spidey never exactly relished the idea of being on the Avengers, as he is physichologically tested as a loner, and wasn't exactly the best team player. He thinks being on a team puts a major cramp in his style. However, even though he has stated that being an Avenger would have as much setbacks as it would benefits, he has been known to try them out when he's in a real stretch for money. Like in ASMA #3, when he reluctantly joined what he deemed "the glory hounds", so that he could have the money to support his Aunt May. If course this didn't work out, but he tried it again a few years later in Avengers #236-237, when he needed money to pay Black Cat's medical bills, and support himself as he dropped out of grad school. Long story short he was rejected by the government, which he deemed for the best anyway, becuase he hated following orders, and never actually DID, and stated it was a stupid idea in the first place.
