Spider-Man: Homecoming’s willingness to to sidestep the history established in Sony’s two other takes on the webhead and get Peter Parker back to his awkward, teenage roots is a large part of what makes the movie as refreshing as it is.

Anyone who's been reading Spider-Man comics for a while will remember the infamous arc One More Day, which saw Peter Parker literally make a deal with the Devil, sacrificing his marriage to Mary-Jane Watson to save Aunt May's life. It was terrible, but rejoice! Marvel's announced a do-over.

Self-plagiarism? Please. When it comes to questionable journalistic ethics, Jonah Lehrer is small fry. Clark Kent. Peter Parker. Lois Lane.
