Marvel’s TL;DR Tackles The Little Known Origin Of Spider-Man

Marvel’s TL;DR (Too Long; Didn’t Read) has taken on some of the most critically acclaimed and complicated Marvel story lines from Infinity War to Civil War. It’s a fun, animated cliffnotes’ version of big events in the MCU. Today, they are tackling the origin of Spider-Man, probably one of the most widely know stories in the MCU and one that has been addressed in two feature films, a television series and endless animated series. I think that average person knows the basics… Nerdy kid, bit by radioactive spider, doesn’t stop bad guy, bad guy kills uncle, great powers comes great responsibility. But in case you are one of the people who doesn’t know the story, Noah Sterling, Max Dweck and Tom Rogers have it for you in less than 2 minutes.

I really like the TL;DR’s. I think they server a good purpose for readers and are entertaining on their own. Just seems kind of strange for them to tackle something as well known as Spider-Man’s origin. I’m sure it has to do with the upcoming release of Spider-Man: Homecoming… but they could’ve done One More Day instead.
