Difference is that Spidey's been around for decades, and nearly every story has
been told in one way or another, so there's not much that can be added from the
discussions that could be said to be owned by the poster...as opposed to
something brand new that is still being shaped. Also, I don't own Spidey,
didn't create it, so I'm in a less vulnerable position.
