In comics when you notice a wave or trend and you try jump on it, it's already too late, things move very fast in creative industries. So to avoid being a Johnny come lately, you need to predict where the market is heading. Recently Marvel's head of sales David Gabriel revealed that according to retailers the introduction of diversity was driving away core readers. Others pointed to the endless mega crossover events and rebooting your entire universe to try to introduce these new characters and to get more #1 issues on the shelves. We may never know what's driving down the sales, female Thor or having to spend hundreds of dollars each month to follow Civil War3, and don't forget to pick up the variants. ---------------------------------------------
Since we know #1 issues work, it's a safe bet that another full relaunch of the entire Marvel line is coming soon, in an attempt to be ahead of the wave, here is my pitch. This is my character concept for Spider Uncle Ben. The story revolves around Uncle Ben who having witnessed his nephew Peter get run down by a drunk driver, has taken up the mantle of a cosplayer who hangs out in Times Square to make extra cash. Each night he gets drunk so he can fall asleep in front of the TV, without it he has terrible insomnia out of the guilt of having been the one driving the car. Also Aunt May left him, so he's pretty sad all around. .
