|Reviews for SpiderMan: Evolution|
| Angel of Atonement chapter 1 . 2/2
I've never read an "alternate take of Spider-Man right from the beginning" fanfic before, but your's is now one of my favourite stories period. Each chapter made me feel like I was watching an episode of a new great Spider-Man cartoon(Oh how I miss Spectacular) and I adore the distinct style and methods you've chosen for this version.
You've got great writing, funny dialogue, distinct action, real emotions, interesting characters all around, and you are actually portraying the effects of Spider-Sense correctly. That might seem like an odd thing to mention but it was a big deal for me personally. Spider-Sense is my favourite power of Peter's and I haven't felt like it has been shown off to its fullest in the shows and movies yet, just glimpses of it. Heck, I just read a "Superior Spider-Man" comic for the first time and Octavius was complaining about it being uselessly non-specific about danger. I practically yelled at the comic for that.
Bottom line though, I loved this to death while reading it and I really, REALLY needed a good Spidey "something" since the comics and the new "Ultimate Spider-Man" show aren't really clicking for me, so I'm very glad I found this. Also, thanks for making it so episodic so that I don't feel too bad about finding it before it is finished. You've made a Web-Head fan's day.
Keep up the good work, whatever you happen to be putting that work into these days.

Hi again. Didn't get to finish this yesterday, but I got around to it today. This was another really fun chapter. I agree full on with your decision to give Toad a backstory with this chapter rather than focus on introducing another Spidey villain, It does a great job of tying this story into the rest of the Evolution universe and you wrote him quite well. I'll be honest, Toad's never been one of my favourites, but I enjoyed his use here a lot. The banter was one of the highlights of the chapter, along with the subplot of Harry and Flash competing for Liz's affections, only for them to screw up in the end. I enjoy silly but fun little stories like that. And of course we can't forget the Bugle staff, your portrayal of Jameson is pretty good. Honestly, I'm surprised he'd actually give Peter that much for those photos, but hey, despite being the biggest jerk in the comics he does have his integrity, and I think you got that across. It'll be fun to see more on the Daily Bugle storyline in later chapters, Peter's photography career there has always been one of my favourite things about Spiderman. Silvermane as the first arc villain is a nice touch too. He's never been one of my favourites either, but there's no point breaking out a bigger Spidey villain like Goblin or the Kingpin this early into the story. I don't see why you're disappointed with this chapter, it was pretty funny and good. Spelling mistakes abound of course, but not as bad as a lot of stories. Well, here's to the next chapter, good job

Well, finally got around to finally reviewing. I've been reading up on a couple of your "Evolution" stories, and I must say I'm quickly becoming a fan of your work. I decided to start reading proper here because Spiderman is my all time favourite superhero, and this is one of the better Spiderman revamp stories I've seen. It has a few bumps, a bunch of spelling errors, left out letters, or just odd way of phrasing things in some places can be slightly distracting, and I kinda wish Scorpion got a bit more development along the line, his attack on Spiderman just seems to come too suddenly and could have used a bit more set-up, but these minor details didn't really detract from the quality of the writing. I'm enjoying your depictions of the characters thus far, and you've got a great sense of humour. For a story meant to be set in the X-men Evolution universe you're doing a great job of giving it a cartoony feel, I was never a big fan of X-men Evolution (Just never got into it, though I'm watching a few episodes lately), but from what I can tell the tone matches fairly well. Of course there's plenty you can get away with here that you can't do in a cartoon, the reasonably high death count for an origin arc (Was it 50 people that died from those spider bites?) being an example. The action scenes were pretty good, and I like all the little shout outs you gave in these three chapters. makes me eager to see where things go from here. I'll definitely keep on reading until the end, I'll add this story to my favourites on my other account when I can. Not sure what you're writing at the moment, but I hope this gets an update sometime soon. you know, for the sake of having more to read. I like really long chapters too by the way, you should read some of my stories, I really go overboard with the word count. Ok, I'll leave another review soon, first I'm going to review your Justice League story since I read that too. Have a nice day

Okay, I have a lot of things to say about this chapter, so here I go. Anyway, for the torture scene, it wasn't too graphic, but it was kind of disturbing, but, I totally understand, since it is Punisher. Punisher is such a maniac, and I like how you portrayed him.
Anyways, I love Harry and Norman's interaction, how Norman actually loves Harry but he doesn't have time for him. Anyways, Tony Stark? I can't wait for him, Iron Man in the Evolution Spider-Man series. So, yeah, I like this chapter, and al though I love MJ and I wish she was in this, you probably had no time to fit her in.
Also, I seriously nearly cried with the Dennis Carradine in the cemetery scene. But, I bet that's just me.
Anyways, great job and I hope you update soon.

Because you have such a great story, i'm working on adding your fanfic into the fanric recs. Good luck, and keep up the good work.
| Miko122 chapter 17 . 10/5/2013
I guess i'll be the first to review this chapter, good job. I really like the way Spider-Man is reacting to all these events, and it really makes me feel sorry for him. Also, the romance with MJ and Peter seems really hinted about, so that's cool. That, and, personally, I think Peter, MJ, Harry, Flash and Hobie are all awesome characters, but I would really like to see him become the Prowler.
| Miko122 chapter 16 . 10/5/2013
Hey, great chapter you have here. The scenes with MJ and Peter were great, but honestly, this chapter was too long. It was too long to read, and I think I would've liked Peter to return to being Spider-Man at the end. Also, I don't know if it's just me, but, I love the scenes with Madame Webb.
Anyways, I look forward with reading on, and the story seems very interesting.
| Miko122 chapter 1 . 10/5/2013
Wow, you did a great job with the first season. Great characters, great villains and all that. So, congrats on reaching this far. However, i'll be honest with you, I would have liked Felicia to be closer to her comic counterpart, but, it's also a good thing that you were able to throw in your own spin on the character.
The interaction with Spider-Man all the other heroes is great.
Look forward to reading more from you.
| Miko122 chapter 14 . 10/2/2013
Great story! I love a witty Peter, and also, I would love more appearances for Aunt May. Taskmaster seems a bit too silly, but don't change him, seriously. The best scenes are the ones with Peter, but I also love the other characters.
| Miko122 chapter 13 . 10/1/2013
Hey, great chapter you have here. Great description, great dialogue, great villains and great story. It was also very funny, hearing all the things that Spider-Man said (you know, the quips.)
Also, the length was great. When a story is too short, you tend to read it and then it just finishes so quickly, but you had the right amount of length. Anyways, great story you've got going on there, and the introduction for Madame Web was the right time to include her.
However, I couldn't help but feel that Taskmaster was a joke, and he should've been more serious. Anyways, great chapter, and keep on going.

Hey, thank you for replying to me, and i thought i'd say that i am the guy that said there is too much swearing in your story, and i have read more, because you are an AMAZING writer. You have so much talent, and people should really realise the amazing stories you make. I must read on!
| somebody chapter 18 . 8/31/2013
Well I've got to say this is a really great story, but I must ask, where did your Crash stories go!? I just got back from a holiday and realised they were gone. Those were some of my favourite Crash Bandicoot stories ever, and now they're gone. What happened?
| Key and Lock chapter 18 . 8/29/2013
I have to say these were great chapters, I loved the way you portrayed the Punisher. He was brutal, ruthless, and very deadly. I also loved the struggle Peter had to face with dealing with the one person he hates more than anyone else, and Matt dealing with the fact that he let him walk. Sure it was for a good reason, but that doesn't change what David did. Speaking of David, I'm glad that he's getting an expanded role, and I have to admit I like how sympathetic he is. I also liked how you managed to squeeze in a Doctor Horrible and a Firefly reference. Good job. I'm looking forward to seeing the early version of Iron Man and Doc Ock. Good luck.

I actually prefer the term 'The Cobweb' to 'The Spider's Web' spider web seems kinda obvious, and for some reason the Cob Web just sounds cooler to me. Still though, a FREAKING BATCAVE, Respect times 10!

'A kid lets go of his balloon and it starts to float away, Peter instead deals with the runaway car two streets away, £& the kid with his dumb balloon he has important things to do.' I nearly died right there, I loved the spiderman 2 game reference there.
