Class in session for a review of Spider-Man: Homecoming

Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University and I saw “Spider-Man: Homecoming” twice… because comic books!
Spider-Man is one of the most recognizable characters in the pop culture world. In 1992, I remember reading a “Stan’s Soapbox” where Stan Lee, whose wife just died a few days ago, discussed Marvel’s first trip to Japan in that same year. Due to the import regulations of the time, Japan never permitted a single comic book to enter within its territories nor a single cartoon to pass over its airwaves. Aside from a few travelers bringing in a comic or two, there was no previous exposure to the character.
Yet, when Stan Lee worked out a deal to bring the medium to Japan and walked down the streets with a man dressed as Spider-Man next to him, the streets were crowded with Japanese people, young and old, who were calling out for Spider-Man by name. Talk about crossing barriers!
So of course, this movie had to be good because Marvel Studios was getting behind it. Well, the film lived up to the hype.
We get to pretty much skip the origin story because none of us need to be reminded. The driving force behind this film doesn’t even revolve around the standard Spider-Man film, rather focusing on Peter Parker trying to prove himself worthy to Tony Stark to gain admission into the Avengers.
This new motivation for ol’ Web-head is a breath of fresh air to the other films in that life doesn’t necessarily ­happen­ to Spider-Man. He’s not some victim, he goes out and tries to be a hero in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
Again, no spoilers, but I think that you’ll agree by the end of the film after all the smoke is clear and the surprises revealed, Spider-Man feels as though he’s actually earned his place in the world – just like in the comics.
I’m keeping this one short, guys, now use that extra time to go out and see this film.
