And so, why? Is it because he's also the youngest Marvel hero yet?

I would argue that if SpiderMan were to have both qualities off, he would have been completely an Avenger since the start.

He's the only iconic Marvel hero not to really be an Avenger.

Fine


He tends to just principally fight in his homeland. He doesn't go on big ass missions like most other heroes do.


As for my the other point, well I mean how could Spiderman be an Avenger if he's too young and has to take care of other things?

Well, he is a "friendly neighborhood Spider-Man".

Yup. It was a staple of several Marvel heroes in their day. DAREDEVIL comes to mind. He was probably even more local than Spidey. Spidey lived in Queens but hung out mostly throughout Manhattan. Daredevil tended to stick almost exclusively to Hells Kitchen in Manhattan.

Depends on the writer. Various writers over the years have made Spidey an Avenger. I never thought it worked too well. Spidey shines best on his own, not as a team player.

Keep in mind that in the comics, Peter Parker hasn't been a teenager in decades. Since the late '60s, I think.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN from a few years back was a sort of 21st century reboot that returned Peter to his teenage years. It was fantastic. One of my all-time favorite comics.

I forgot there was also a general forum for entertainment, sucks that there isn't one for comic books though. So I am so sorry for the miscategorization.

If you want to discuss comics (not movies), you could always create a thread in the main section, or in the Books subforum.

I created this thread for general discussion for all CBMs:

CBMania: The DCEU, MCU, Sonyverse, Foxverse, and Beyond!

Definitely. It would probably come down to either Daredevil or Luke Cage. Those guys don't stray from their turf. Spider-Man has.

Their villains don't even stray from their home turf.
