How is that any different from the teenage versions of Peter Parker? A young genius who can't drink, smoke, or lose a limp, whatever that means. How many Spiderman stories focused on the woes of him being underage for drinking and smoking? (not counting any PSA specific comics they did that break continuity). I'm willing to bet not many, if at all. Yet they somehow came up with compelling stories for Peter Parker to take part in, despite his crippling state of being a minor. I'm confident they can do it with Riri, just like they did with Miles Morales.
I meant limb.
I think you didn't mean to, but that's strawmanning. This Spiderman story of yours not only sounds like a spin-off, but also like complete shit to me. I wouldn't enjoy that, either.
It's not strawmanning to say your reason for why her story will suck: which boiled down to "She's a teenage minor that nobody could relate to, because she's only 15. Citing that she can't drink or smoke or lose a limb...though I have no idea what being a teenager has to do with losing a limb as you put it. Seriously that makes zero sense.
I mean unless your entire post was sarcastic, then if so, nevermind. But if you were serious, I was pointing out that she's hardly the first teenage superhero they've published, and she's not even the youngest one they've done. Miles Morales was 13 when he first got his powers in the Spiderman series. And the Peter Parker he took the place of in that reality was a teenager in highschool. I don't know his official age, but given the time the comic line lasted, I'm pretty sure he was probably also a minor when he started fighting crime. And those stories were good and compelling.
So again, how is it any different for her, compared to at least 2 other examples of the same concept, that have both been received well by readers, and been at least moderately successful financially?
15 years MIT student gets pampered by a rich macho for being super intelligent. How relatable is that? 15 motherfucking years. She can't even drink alcohol. Smoke. Lose a limp.
I know you mean limb there, but what in the 9 hells does that have to do with being 15?
