Why Spider-Man used to suck...

Get 20% off a year of learning on Brilliant by being one of the first 200 to sign up at http://Brilliant.org/NerdSync In his first few comics, Peter Parker was an angry nerd who became a selfless hero! But then, things started to shift towards Spidey embracing Ayn Rand's philosophy of objectivism, becoming a selfish superhero. So let's talk about this horrible time in Marvel's history. There's definitely no politics in this video where I explain the real origin and terrible philosophy of Spider-Man and his co-creator Steve Ditko!

Hey, you wonderful nerd! I'm Scott. Here's my story...

I was a terrible student in school and eventually failed out of college, but I discovered that I actually love learning! History, philosophy, science, culture — you name it! I just needed to learn through a topic I was already passionate about. So I turned to superheroes!

 

I LOVE SUPERHEROES! The powers, the costumes, what they can represent, all of it! Now I make videos that analyze comics & superheroes to teach about bigger, broader topics in the real world! The goal is twofold:

 

  • Show that superhero stories can be deep and complex.

  • Show that learning can be exciting when done so through a fun subject matter.

 

This year, I'm expanding the channel to make video essays about other topics like cartoons, Bob Ross, and Dungeons & Dragons! Subscribe on YouTube to read between the panels and grow smarter through comics and other nerdy topics!
