    Teamed up? Weren't they lovers at one point? Anywho, you've peaked my interest, but I'm not promising anything.

    Ok well to go ahead and clear the waters there is both a Spidergirl and Spiderwoman. Spidergirl is May Parker, Spidermans daugther, who inherited her fathers powers and who has taken up the superhero torch where Peter left off. Spiderwoman has no relationship to Spiderman although she too gained her powers through an irradiated spider. She possesses super strength and dexterity much like Spiderman but lacks spider sense and webshooters. So those ideas are taken for those who are considering a sidekick whose a carbon copy of or very near to Spiderman.

    Where did you got the info bout those two?? I left the cartoon when he gets ass-kikced by Venom and Carnage in Contraearth (I think the name was Contraearth)
    Or was it from the comic, cuz the new comic never reached my city.

    well, the first thing I am thinking is that the sidekick should be able to keep up with Spiderman when he is swinging around. Maybe she doesn't shoot webs like he does but instead uses some kind of hook and lines gizmo. Maybe she can jump really far, or can fly. Damn I just realized there are so many comic book characters coming up with a new one aint gonna be easy! What goes good with a spider? hmmm.

    Thoras I found it all here. This is basically a compendium of Marvel characters. Look it up under "S" in the Individuals link. Also I dont think a scorpion is the way to go since one of Spidermans main villains was the Scorpion. http://www.marveldirectory.com/directory.htm

    In terms of coming up with a sidekick I dont envy anyone who is doing this weeks CHoW. Spiderman is really one of the most capable superheros out there. Hes quick, superstrong, agile, intelligent, etc., the list could go on and on. So this sidekick has to really bring something to the table so that Spiderman would consider her an asset and not a hindrance. However heres a few things that popped into my head. Like Artiphats mentioned she has to be an extremely quick character. No plodding thug strongwomen. So whether she flies, jumps, runs superfast, rides a jetbike, or whatever she needs to keep up so she can provide backup. Cuz as well all know backup is the sole purpose of the sidekick. I think an essential thing would be that she carry spare supplies for her mentor. So she needs to have a ready supply of extra web cartridges of varying types for every occassion, perhaps even a spare costume in case Spidey tears his duds during a big rumble. Also whatever superpower this character has it cant overshadow Spidermans powers. A sidekick is both less experienced and trained in addition to having only fledling powers. Also I dont think its completely necessary that she be arachnid related. Her costume should probably contain elements of Spideys so that the two seem cohesive but she doesnt necessarily have to use a spider as her hero handle. Think of Robin. What do bats and robins really have in common aside from flight and a love for insects? But the connection was still there because they had flight in common and apparently that was enough. So perhaps a young woman in blue/red with lots of utility belts containing extra supplies. The real tricky part is determining her powers. I find that making up a little story about a character helps to flesh them out, something along the lines of an origin story. Just something to work from, hope this helped, just throwing some ideas out.

    actually the one failing Spiderman has is that he is totally emo
    a side kick whois level headed might be just the ticket
    c.rocks

    just stirring the pot
    its not about physical capability but emotional; stability

    True enough but I imagine at the age that Spiderman might need a sidekick he would have gotten rid of his angsty youthful tendencies. Hes done alot of growing up as the series has progressed.

    EMO is short for emotional. Its a type of music thats based mostly in punk rock that deals with relationships, matters of the heart, etc. From what I can tell one day a punk rock kid picked up his guitar after a horrible breakup with his girlfriend and started whining in time to a beat. I consider it Punk Lite. Of couse like punk emo has spawned its own way to dress and act. Stereotypically an emo kid is someone whose eternally depressed about life in general who dresses in an alternative fashion.

    emo = (punk - (1/2 time drum signature)) + (ample acoustic guitar x off key singing)(whining + apologizing)

    I hope many of this weeks entries contain rediculous overly large breasts....

    emotional. in a bad, teenagerish way. "O MY GOD THE WORLD SUCKS, I SHALL DIE MY HAIR BLACK IN SILENT PROTEST" like goths, but less cool, and less hot (girls).
