Chapter One - Is It Just a Role?

The dress rehearsal for the drama club's latest production was over. The curtain fell, the audience
of excited parents applauded enthusiastically. The curtain raised and the performers stepped
forward to take their bows. The curtain fell again and still the crowd applauded. The two stars,
Troy and jagged, took their positions centre stage, holding hands as the curtain raised one more time.
They bowed to the audience. Then, overcome with joy, jagged turned and kissed her handsome co-
star full on the lips, her tongue partly invading his mouth.
Troy pulled back, stunned. There was a gasp from the audience. Troy pulled back his arm
and punched jagged full in the face. She fell, blood streaming from her nose.

"Get away from me,faggot!" cried Troy as he stomped off of the stage.

jagged sat briefly on the stage, dazed by the blow. Suddenly, just what
she had done wrong dawned on her. She had gotten so wrapped up in her part, she had forgotten!
She wasn't jagged, she was nick! Tears streamed down his cheeks as he picked himself up and raced
off of the stage to the crescendo of jeers that chased him.
Oblivious of where he ran, nick bumped straight into Mr. Bennett, his
drama teacher. Mr. Bennett wrapped his arms around his confused student as nick buried his
head against his chest and cried.

"You'd better go to my office and get yourself under control. I'll explain everything to Troy, I
mean to Raymond." Raymond was the boy playing the part of Troy in the play.
nick took a tissue from Mr. Bennett and dabbed at his eyes and running
nose as he ran down the hallway. He locked the door of Mr. Bennett's office behind him and
sobbed gently. Finally, he went to the small washroom off of the office and cleaned his
face. His thick theatrical makeup was a mess, and so he scrubbed it off, leaving his clean smooth face
unblemished. That felt a bit better.
nick stared at himself in the mirror, at his own bright blue eyes,
delicate nose, short blond hair. What had come over him?
He was only sixteen and his parents, who were always travelling the
world on business, had dumped him here at the Bishop Strachan private high school for boys. He
had been thrilled to join the drama club, but had been hesitant when Mr. Bennett had suggested
that he try out for the FEMALE lead in the latest play. Well, someone had to play the girls' parts.
And Mr. Bennett had offered to give him extra coaching, outside of class hours and regular after
school rehearsals.
But had it gone too far? For the past eight weeks, nick had left the
dormitory every weekend and lived for those two days with Mr. Bennett and his wife. Mr.
Bennett had stressed that in order to play a girl's part, it was important to understand girls, how
they thought, how they looked upon situations differently than boys did. So from Friday night until
Sunday evening each week, nick had disappeared and Mr. and Mrs. Bennett had enjoyed the company
of jagged.
For two days of every seven, nick had lived his life as a girl, as if
he was the Bennett's niece, visiting her relatives each weekend. Mrs. Bennett had coached nick
on how to walk, how to talk, how to pick out clothing and put on makeup. It was all an
emotional drain on nick, twisting his mind into such an alien, to him, way of thinking. To compensate,
said Mrs. Bennett, she had mixed him a special high protein juice drink which he drank three
times a day, even during the week.
And Mr. Bennett had instructed nick intensively on acting, particularly the nuances of
the live stage and interacting with his fellow performers. But tonight, nick had forgotten
himself and jagged had emerged full force and tried to interact a little too much.
nick decided he could not go through with the play. The jagged character was becoming
too strong. But then, he thought back and realized how wonderful it had felt when Troy had held
him in his strong arms in the hotel scene in the second act, and again at the climax of the play.
Impatient, nick scrounged in Mr. Bennett's desk drawer and found a pack of cigarettes
and matches. He lit one and smoked it silently as he sat and thought. He caught sight of his own
reflection in the full length mirror on the back of the door and smiled. The reflection, partly
obscured by shadows, was that of an attractive young girl, idly smoking. nick had never
smoked until the weekends at the Bennett's house. He realized with a start that he held his cigarette
like a girl!
He crushed out the cancer stick.
Just then, Mr. Bennett opened the door and entered the room.
"I quit," said nick, before Mr. Harvey Bennett could say a word.
Harvey lifted nick to his feet and pulled the young boy's body close to his own. nick
instantly burst into tears again. "I ... I don't know what I want. This is all so strange to me!"
"I can well imagine it is," said Harvey to the feminine boy. "nick ...jagged ... listen to
me. I've trained many boys for female roles. They've all come to grips with the anguish of gender
identification. You will too. I know it. You are honestly the best student I've ever trained."
"You ... you really mean that?"
Harvey sat down on his couch and dragged the young lad down onto his lap. Harvey linked
his arms around nick and nick had to place his hands on Harvey's shoulders. But for the
first time ever, nick noticed how good Harvey smelled, and how strong his arms were.
"Oh, jagged," said Harvey. "I really, really do. And it's understandable that you've got such
strange feelings floating around in your head. You've practised so hard. You've done everything
that Joanna and I have asked of you. It would be a shame to throw that all away. You could be a
wonderful performer! You make me so proud!"
"And I love making you proud," said an exuberant nick who, unthinkingly, placed his
lips to Harvey's cheek and planted a soft kiss there. nick drew back surprised, but was even
more surprised when Harvey turned his lips toward him and his strong hand behind the youngster's
blond head and drew their lips together.
Harvey's lips locked firmly to nick's as his tongue invaded the teen's mouth. He crushed
his lips to those of the young boy as his hands caressed nick's back and sides. Momentarily,
nick struggled to break free and then gave in to his own yearnings, kissing his teacher back
Harvey kissed the young boy's neck as soft moans escaped nick's lips.
"Oh jagged," said Mr. Bennett, "you don't know how long I've waited for this!" nick could
feel his prick stiffening in his silken panties. And he was frightened to realize that he
could feel Harvey's own cock stirring in his lap underneath nick's own buttocks.
Harvey had loosened the top of nick's blouse and his fingers now lightly massaged
nick's nipples. nick moaned again. Over the past several weeks, he had noticed that for
some unknown reason his nipples had become larger and much more sensitive to the touch. In fact,
he had even begun to notice that his pectorals were larger, almost as if the act of studying the
female role had begun to make his own breasts grow.
Harvey moved his lips down to nick's left nipple and sucked it whole into his mouth.
His tongue washed around the aureole and his teeth gnashed tenderly at the taut nipple itself.
nick's hips bucked upwards off of Harvey's lap, his cock yearning for release from the now
soaking panties. Harvey's hand reached under nick's skirt, under the elastic of the panties, and
drew forth nick's blood engorged cock.
"Oh god, jagged. You have such a beautiful little prick. It's so slick, so lovely. Cum for me
jagged. Spurt your lovely seed into my hand." said Harvey. Harvey locked his lips to nick's as
one hand toyed with the young boy slut's hard nipple and the other fisted his rampant dick.
nick's ass bucked wildly as the cum churned in his balls.
"Oh, Mr. Bennett, you shouldn't - but it feels so goooooddd! Oh yes, jerk my rod!
EEEEyyyyaaaahh!" cried nick as the cum boiled out of his balls and shot out his piss hole.
Harvey continued to pump the blond boy's dick with one hand as he cupped the other to catch as
much of the spurting hot jism as he could. Finally, nick's dick stopped spurting. Harvey
squeezed the last of the manseed from the boy's now drooping dick.
"That was so good," said Harvey as he tenderly kissed nick. He then opened the boy's
blouse further and rubbed the youngster's own seed around and around on his taut nipples and
breast mounds. "That's only second best, but it will help your breasts to grow."
"My what? But I don't have ... What are you saying?" asked nick.
"Oh, my sweet jagged. You have so much to learn! But now it's time for you to return the
favour. You've had your fun, now it's my turn." With that, Harvey pushed the young lad to the floor
and stood over him. Harvey quickly removed his trousers and underwear. Kneeling, nick found
himself eye to eye with the pisshole at the tip of Mr. Bennett's dick.
"Open your mouth, jagged. It's time for your next lesson on being a girl."
"But I don't want ..." But even before the words were out of his mouth, nick realized
that he DID want to please Harvey, in any way that Harvey wanted him to. nick opened his lips
wide and Harvey pressed forward. The glans of his penis passed over nick's rouged lips and
nick closed his mouth around the intruder.
Not knowing what to do, nick just held the tip of the dick between his lips, savouring
the meaty texture and realizing that he liked the strong flavour.
"Use your tongue, jagged. Wash it around my dick head." nick began to tickle the head of
Harvey's dick as Harvey held his head and slowly began to fuck his cock in and out of the she-
boy's mouth. Faster and faster he pumped. He was primed. He had been primed for weeks, just
thinking about and hoping for the opportunity to make love to his newest student in the art of gender
bending. Harvey had high hopes for jagged. Her training had only just begun.
With one last thrust, he buried his cock at the back of jagged's mouth and cock unleased his
load. nick was taken by surprise. Suddenly thick gobs of jism were shooting out of Harvey's
dick head, deep inside his mouth. He had no choice but to swallow the delicious tasting jism.
"Drink it all down, sweet child.", said Harvey. "Every last drop!" Finally Harvey's dick stopped
spurting, but even then Harvey wasn't finished.
"Suck hard, drain me dry" he ordered the blond he-bitch as he pumped his slowly wilting
cock in and out of those delicious lips. nick eagerly drained his mentor's dick. At the finish, he
held Harvey's dick tightly in his hands and squeezed the last few drops out of the pisshole and onto
his waiting tongue.
"Did ... did I do it okay", the meek boygirl asked her teacher. Harvey drew nick to his
feet and held him close.
"You did just fine," he said, gently kissing nick on the lips. "You did just fine, my sweet
jagged." A drop of cum hung at the edge of nick's painted lips. Harvey wiped at it with his finger
and then offered his finger to nick who eagerly flicked the stray drop into his mouth with his
pert tongue.
"But now you had better get straightened up and get on home. Which, considering all that
has happened tonight, had better be my place. Besides, we should probably talk about what just
happened, and about your future."
"But, Mr. Bennett, what about ...."
"Don't worry. Joanna is very understanding. Besides ... What was that, did you hear a
"No, no sir, I didn't."
"Well, I have to go and say goodbye to all the folks who are still hanging around out there,
and I have to make sure everything is locked up properly. Why don't you tidy up and then run on
over to my place. I'll call ahead so that Joanna is expecting you. And I'll be along as soon as I can.
"O... okay, I guess", answered nick.
Harvey gave nick another tender kiss, which nick returned sweetly, and then
Harvey disappeared out the door.
It wasn't until a couple of minutes later that nick realized that his
own street clotheswere in the locker room, with all the other boys. Well, he wasn't going to
face them tonight. So he would have to leave the school tonight in his costume.
He straightened his panties and blouse, then took a look in the mirror.
His makeup was gone, but his hair he could manage. It was such a simple cut that worked so
well when he was a boy during the week, and which with a bit of spray could be minorly altered
to its present shape, ideal for the stage and weekend role as jagged. A few strokes with a comb and
it was tidy again.
Ready, he stepped out of the door and made his way down the hallway. But he never
reached the exit door. Strong hands wrapped around his mouth and chest and dragged him down a
stairway, deep into the basement of the school. nick fainted.
If only he had paid attention to that noise. He and Harvey might have noticed that their little
love session had been observed by old R-dog, the school caretaker, who now had his own designs
on young jagged!

Chapter Two - Raped!

nick awoke lying on a thin dirty mattress on a small bed in a grease and oil smelly room. He
sat up but when he tried to stand, he was jerked back down by the four foot ropes with which each
of his wrists was tied to the head of the bed.
A quick look at his watch told nick that he had only been unconscious
for about fifteen minutes. His fingers worked at the tightly knotted rope. The braids were
thick but, with enough time, he should be able to work himself free. But he didn't have enough time.
The door to the room was suddenly opened and in walked R-dog, the school caretaker, a man of about
forty, somewhat dirty, scraggly beard, and liquor on his breath.
nick crouched on the bed, trying to curl up into a ball at the headboard as R-dog tossed a
bag on the foot of the bed.
"Pretty girl," said R-dog as he went to the table against the far wall and pulled deeply from
the whisky bottle sitting there.
nick realized that he must be in the caretaker's room in the basementof the school. R-dog
of course did not live in the school, but was provided with this room from which to work as he
cleaned up the school afterhours which, because of after school activities, sometimes meant R-dog
had to work all night. Obviously R-dog had personalized the room for his own tastes.
On the walls were taped pictures of women in various stages of undress,
from newspaper Sunshine girls to Playboy centrefolds, to even more risque pictures of
teenage girls pushing thick dildoes into their pussies, white women with their mouths wrapped around
thick black cocks and even photos of women being fucked and sucking cocks at the same time. nick
had never seen such pictures before. They must have come from the dozens of magazines that
were strewn on the floor beside the bed; magazines with titles like Hustler, Young Beavers, Cum
Shots and even Back Door Babes!
"Fix yourself up!" R-dog yelled at nick.
"I don't know what you want ..." nick said quietly.
R-dog picked up the bag at the end of the bed and thrust it at nick.
"Make yourself pretty for me." said R-dog. nick opened the bag. Inside was theatrical makeup,
obviously stolen from the drama club's dressing room. nick looked at R-dog, questioningly. R-dog
slammed the back of his hand across nick's face. nick fell back on the bed, hitting his head
on the headboard.
"Make pretty!" snarled R-dog as he drank from the whisky bottle again. R-dog sat at the table
and stared at nick.
Frightened, nick sat on the edge of the bed and using a grimy mirror
fastened on the wall, began to apply the makeup. Thick mascara, eyeliner and high-lighter,
cheek blush and deep red lipstick. Finally he finished and sat back on the bed.
R-dog grinned and sat on the bed beside nick. R-dog's hand gently
caressed nick's cheek. nick shuddered. "Pretty girl," said R-dog. R-dog's other hand began to
toy with the buttons at the front of nick's blouse. Does R-dog know I'm not really a girl,
wondered nick. What will he do if he finds out I'm not?
R-dog pressed his lips to nick's and kissed him. nick pulled back, but was rewarded
by another vicious slap across the face. His nose began to bleed. R-dog handed him a kerchief and
the bleeding stopped. R-dog glared at nick. "jagged is sweet girl," said R-dog. "Me saw what you
did for Mr. Bennett. You do same for R-dog, or me tell other teachers. You not want teacher lose
job, do you?"
No, thought nick, I can't let Mr. Bennett lose his job, just for trying to help me! Meekly,
nick said, "No. I don't want him to lose his job."
"You do what me want then?"
nick nodded weakly and lifted his head in supplication.
R-dog's lips met nick's and his tongue pushed its way between the boygirl's rouged lips.
nick could taste the caretaker's foul breath as his mouth was raped by R-dog's strong tongue.
R-dog's fingers meanwhile had worked their way under nick's blouse and were now toying with
the teen's right breast mound. nick moaned, and R-dog's tongue plunged deeper.
"Suck my tongue," R-dog commanded, and nick wrapped his lips around the caretaker's
tongue and sucked hard, his own tongue quickly flicking at the older man's thick oral muscle.
R-dog released nick's mouth. His strong hands ripped nick's feminine blouse
completely open, buttons flying. R-dog wrapped his lips around nick's erect left nipple as his
hand continued to toy with the right.
This was something new for nick, to have lips, a tongue, and teeth toying with his
sensitive nipple! God, it felt so good!
"jagged has tender breasts!" said R-dog as his mouth moved to the right nipple. nick's taut
nipples stood erect like the thick ends of pencil erasers. He moaned as R-dog's teeth raked across
them and then gasped in surprise at the tingling sensation as R-dog's thick stubble rasped rudely
across his tender nips.
As R-dog lay atop nick, he began rubbing his crotch against nick's leg. nick could
feel the hard length of the caretaker's rod through his trousers. And nick's own dick had risen to
full mast also!
R-dog rolled over, pulling nick on top. "Kiss my neck," he told the youth. "Kiss my
chest". nick paused to undo the buttons on the janitor's shirt and then began kissing R-dog's chest
and neck. As his lips grazed across the caretaker's nipples, R-dog squirmed. nick spent a few
moments, licking across R-dog's flattened nipples, but R-dog kept pushing the he-slut's head further
down his body.
"Pull my pants off, jagged," said R-dog.
nick pulled R-dog's shoes off and then pulled down the janitor's pants,
pushing them to the floor. The janitor pushed himself further towards the top of the bed so
that nick, tied with his four foot ropes, could manage this. Finally, nick pulled down R-dog's
undershorts. R-dog's erect six inch dick sprang into the air and waved about.
"Suck it, pretty girl. Suck R-dog's dick." R-dog said to nick.
Tentatively, nick closed his hand around the caretaker's cock to
steady it. nick
tightened his grip and moved his hand up the shaft. R-dog groaned and a stream
of precum oozed out
of his pisshole, running down the side of his dick and onto nick's hand.
Slowly, nick fisted
the janitor's rod, as he tried to convince himself that he had to do this.
Finally, he lowered his
painted lips around the bulbous head and slowly licked his tongue around the
sensitive underhead
of the glans.
R-dog moaned again and thrust his hips upwards. This caught nick by
surprise as the dick
slid between his lips and to the back of his mouth. But nick took control
and slowly began
raising and lowering his mouth along the jizz slickened shaft as he continued
to pump his hand
along the base of the dick.
"Oh yes. Suck R-dog good, pretty jagged. Suck real good." R-dog ran his
fingers through
nick's hair. With one hand, nick grabbed R-dog's tight scrotal sac and
slowly squeezed and
released, developing a rhythm which he hoped would make the janitor cum
quicker and end this
humiliation for him.
But nick found that while this experience was degrading and
humiliating, it was also
exciting him. He relished the musky taste of the thick stalk of meat that
pumped past his lips and the
rich manly flavour of the precum that his tongue lapped up each time it
washed around the bulbous
purple glans.
He was awed by the ring of bright red lipstick around the base of R-dog's
cock and the
realisation that it was his own lips that had left that ring there. nick's
own cock stiffened at the
thought and he could feel his belly, wrapped inside his silk panties,
becoming sticky from his own
R-dog began to moan more loudly and thrash about on the bed. "I'm ... I'm
gonna cum!" he
cried out as his hands grasped nick's head and began to bob it up and down
more vigorously on
his cock shaft. nick increased his own pumping action and renewed his
tonguing of the
sensitive underside of the glans.
R-dog's first mighty squirt of jism caught nick full in the left eye,
temporarily blinding
him, but nick quickly engulfed the fountaining dick head in his mouth and
caught the next stream
of thick man seed and eagerly gulped it down. His hand frantically pumped the
hard cock and his
lips vacuumed the scum down his hungry gullet. When R-dog's cock stopped
spurting and shrivelled,
nick used his finger to wipe his left eye and cheek clean and gently sucked
his finger clean.
R-dog pulled the young sheboy upwards on the bed until they cuddled
together, R-dog's thick
lips crushed against those of the feminized lad. nick's own lust subsided
at the sudden
realization of who this liquor-breathed man was and the situation he was in.
And R-dog was indeed not finished with his young he-trollop.
It took only a couple of minutes for R-dog to regain his breath and when
he did he quickly
rose from the bed and pulled nick towards the foot of the bed so that his
arms were stretched
taut, tied tightly to the head of the bed. R-dog tore the remainder of
nick's blouse from his body
and his skirt and panties soon followed. The revelation of nick's cock
seemed to not phase R-dog
in the least, other than R-dog tossing a towel over nick's groin as if to
hide the young lad's dick
and thereby disavow its existence.
R-dog pushed nick's knees up and over so that they touched nick's
shoulders. In this
position, nick's ass was pushed high in the air, his brown puckered asshole
fully exposed.
"Nice sweet pussy," smiled R-dog as he approached the he-girl's smooth
bottom. R-dog
massaged nick's ass cheeks, pulling them and twisting them. Then he kissed
the smooth flesh, at
first delicately and then more firmly, all the time inching closer to
nick's anal pucker. Finally
R-dog's lips closed around the boy's anus and his tongue began to lick and
probe at the nick's
tight hole.
"Must make pussy nice and slick. Oh, pussy tastes so good!" said R-dog as
his tongue
washed the boy's ass. nick tried to shout and scream but R-dog quickly
stuffed nick's soiled
panties into his mouth, thereby gagging him.
nick's eyes grew wide as R-dog's tongue managed to probe a full inch,
and then an inch
and a half, up nick's poop chute. Then R-dog worked a finger inside the
effeminate lad's pucker
and slowly worked his finger in and out.
nick knew what was coming next. He dreaded it. He twisted and turned,
trying to avoid
the inevitable. R-dog's six inch dick was once again hard. With nick folded
in half, R-dog stood
above the young teen and placed the head of his dick against nick's
asshole. Slickened with
R-dog's saliva and loosened by R-dog's finger probing, nick's asshole easily
parted to accept the
head of the janitor's thick rod.
R-dog pressed downwards and his dick easily slid deep into the lad's
trembling ass. R-dog
sighed and giggled with glee as the full length of his dick was imbedded in
the boy's ass and R-dog's
swaying ballsac slapped against nick's own testicles. R-dog raised himself
until his dick popped
free. nick could see the flecks of filth that dotted the slick browned
surface of the janitor's rigid
tool - but only for a moment because R-dog immediately plunged his rod deep
into the boy's bowels,
even deeper than the first drive, if that was possible.
R-dog quickly fucked his cock in and out of nick's quivering ass.
nick sobbed as his
virgin ass was raped brutally. From his supine position, nick was forced to
watch his rapist's
dick plunge in and out of his ass, was forced to see the filth and slime from
his own asshole that
coated the rampant truncheon.
And nick was forced to realize that no matter how degraded he felt,
how sicked he was
at being used as a sex tool by this sick pervert, nick's own cock was hard
and throbbing, his
own ball sac was tight, wanting desperately to release its load. nick's
rigid cock waved wildly
in the air each time R-dog's rod thrust past nick's prostate on its trek to
the nether regions of his

Sweet jagged

Part 2 of 3

nick quickly donned the outfit and examined himself in the mirror. He
would be
passable once he washed his face and brushed his hair; he didn't want to be
stopped by anyone or
bothered with any questions until he got to the Bennett's house.
He climbed to the window and made his escape.
nick tried not to hurry or to look upset as he walked the ten blocks
to the Bennett's
house. Several people smiled and said hello and a couple of teen boys even
whistled at him. He
had to hold down his skirt since the wind would have picked it up and blown
it about. He had no
panties or underwear and the teen boys would have been shocked to see
nick's flaccid dick
under his skirt.
Finally he reached the Bennett's house and rang the door bell.

Seriously though, might as well be a geek movie. Why would i put LOTR in the same category as Spider Man? Who wrote that editorial and why must geek movies be stereotyped together? I mean some of these geek movies really suck. Do they really deserve to be lumped into the LOTR pile?

PS: I vote "What about Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing?" to be the new "In Soviet Russia..." of 2004. I laughed when i saw that.

Well done, Macromedia.

I think that is intentional. From the first movie it is clear that Superman exists as a comic book hero in that world. Peter is a geek and likely a fairly big Superman fan.

"Clearly Dr. Octopus is the nemesis, but I read the Lizard will be in this movie as well. Maybe he will appear in a future trailer?"

Dr. Curt Conners might be in the film. He was mentioned as being Pete's boss before Pete got fired from the lab in the original film. Curt Conners in the comics became "The Lizard." However, it is doubtful "The Lizard" will make a reptilian appearance in this film. Remember, Sony plans on Spidey being a never-ending franchise, like MGM/UA's James Bond series.

But, from the way it sounds, the Scarecrow will appear in the new Batman film for the first 10 minutes before the movie focuses on Batman and his main foe, R'as Al Ghul. What a great film...Chris Nolan directing and they already have Christian Bale as Batman, Michael Cain as Alfred, the guy from 28 Days Later as the Scarecrow, and possibly Kurt Russell as Sgt./Commissioner Gordon...

Oh yeah, back to Spider-Man 2! :0

Or less propietary formats. avi/asf is pretty widely supported, helix (from realnetworks) is open. Quicktime depends too much on apple players that are not available for all plataforms, even when mplayer can cope with it i'm not sure how much will be left out.

After all, the company that makes the movie and the trailer want that us buy their product, or speak about it, or reccomend it to friends. The whole idea of the trailer is that the people have a hint on how it will be. Putting things in a way that make difficult to see for a lot of people is against the objetive of making a trailer.

While I don't mind AVI/ASF because I use Windows (and I like it thank you very much), I wouldn't call it open or less proprietary that QT in SWF. Oddly enough the Flash file format is open but SWF is tightly controlled by Macromedia. Helix is only the player. The real codec is still proprietary and it's still crap.

Huh?!? Last I checked somewhere on the order of 98% of all connected desktop users can view SWF content. I'd say that would make it VERY easy for anyone to see. Perhaps you don't like being classified as a nobody by companies like Macromedia? That's a completely different beef though, and even then Macromedia makes a Linux compatible SWF plug-in.

Oh... right... it's trendy now to bash movies because they're mainstream. Ok, i'm sorry, Bad Mainstream Media for stealing our geek icons!! Bad bad! Spider-Man sucks since it's now popular and enjoyed by those non-geeks.

Maybe I'm the perfect target audience, maybe I'm not qualified to comment at all, either way I loved the first one and will be seeing this when it comes out.

I love the fact that they're still making Peter Parker a geek. True to the comic's heritage and spirit. Although in the first one we see that he has no need for glasses, he's still wearing them here. A geek at heart, but one that can kick ass.

The anguish between his powers/ reponsibilities and love life looks to play a bigger part in this movie. DocOct looks great without a cheezy mask to hide behind.. and it looks like they're working in the revenge angle for Harry Osborne. Looking good here!

I am hoping (praying) this villan is better than the last one. (sorry but the acting there was not some of Williams best work there) and this time around the quality of the villan looks just as bad.

No. Peter has already completely fallen for MJ, but can't endanger her by being with her. That's the tragedy of Spider-Man, that's the part (aside from fairly interesting baddies) which makes Spidey so interesting (to me at least). (Just because Clark Kent can't endanger Lois Lane by being with her and revealing he is Superman, doesn't make Spider-Man a rip-off, does it?)
