Well, it's not like Peter himself wasn't a bit of a tool between the moments where he got his powers and when Uncle Ben gets 86'ed--but it does do a better job of giving him more character, I think; even in Amazing Fantasy #15, where basically every panel is a full scene.
Yeah, this was one of my suggestions. I love that moment at the update when I see the piece and think 'Awesome, they liked my suggestion and drew it'. I've always been a fan of Spider-Ham and the 'ALF-Alpha' joke seemed fairly obvious to me. ^_^ (Trivia tidbit -- Spider-Ham and ALF both have cameos in the X-Babies mini-series though have no dialogue and appear in about 2 panels each)
I do realize it, yes. And I never take it for granted. I have lots of fun coming up with ideas for you guys to draw and it's been great fun these years (I've been making suggestions since TLiiD's first week and have had a blast making friends with the artists and watching their style grow and watching their process.
That was YOU?!! Lol... Do you know some of the guys actually thought about that one, but they all backed off putting me on paper. I wasn't going to do it, but I did invite them to give me superboobs.
I think the key here is mass tweeting ideas. My husband gets one or two in a month at least from one of us. I try not to look at who tweeted what, so I won't be biased. I just draw what I can see in my head first, especially if it gives me a chuckle right off.
