    ...Isn't Peter still a kid himself or was that changed?*they're so many different Spidermen these days it's hard to keep up with them*

    Yeah this smells like an obvious movie cash-in.

    It's Slott so I'll give it a shot. The man has written an amazing web of Spidey stories since taking over the book.

    The good thing about news like this is that whatever it is, nothing in comics is permanent.

    Science experiment gone wrong giving him decidedly generic powers. Like I haven't heard this one before. What will his name be, Ant-boy or something? The kid who can lift fifty times his own body weight and is one of those weird ants that can fly?

    Add it to the list of thousands of things we have seen before in every issue of every super-hero comic book that ever gets published. If tired cliches bother you, you may be in the wrong genre. :p

    Actually turned out okay.

    Kid Andrew Macguire is an outcast at school, no friends, can't get the courage to speak to a girl ... basically, Peter Parker. However he ends up with "cosmic powers", which will continue to grow as he uses them, making him an "alpha class" super hero (like Jean Grey, future-Storm, Professor Xaiver, Magneto, etc.) ... and Spider-Man is chosen to mentor him to become a super HERO and not a villain. But he's all about showing off at school and wants to impress everyone.

    It has the potential to really bring about some development for Peter because the kid has "future badguy" written all over him. Plus you can only kill Aunt May, Mary Jane, and all of them so many times before you have to create a new character to be killed to continually torment Spider-Man.

    Earth 616 Peter Parker is no longer a teen, he have gotten older as time passed, he is in his 20s if i am not wrong, this is futher supported on the Spider-Men crossover in where Earth 1610 says that the Peter Parker they're dealing is not a kid (also Ultimate Aunt May seems to see that this peter is older)

    Seems like an odd choice, given one of the major points of retconning all those decades of spider-history was to make him less of a "mature, adult" character.
