Spiderman is DEAD! ►►
Venom is the VICTIM! ►
We've seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That's right, I'm talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn - the Green Goblin - was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben's do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

  • It is also important to note how Peter's loss and regaining of his powers has a lot to do with how he feels about Mary Jane. The first time his powers fail comes directly after he sees MJ kissing John. When he loses his powers later and ultimately gives up being Spider-Man, it comes directly after he witnesses MJ and John getting engaged. When his powers finally do come back, it is right when MJ gets captured by Doc Ock.

  • You didn't need a 12-minute video with ads. Are you at a say was Peter Parker and Spider-Man lives were Crossing Over. Thats it

  • *spider-man have crippling depression*

  • I kinda thought the reason was obvious

  • Well in the 90s Spider-Man he loses his power because he was undergoing a mutation into the man spider so maybe there was a plan to do the man spider if they got past the 3rd movie

  • I, for one, love Turn Off The Dark. It is a technical marvel and is a living comic book. Sure, the Arachne subplot may have been a tad taboo and not needed but it added to the absurdity, which aided in the show's favor. It took one tone and ran with it

  • that beating in the background music is super fucking annoying

  • it's funny, I've actually always thought that he lost his powers because of the the things that happened to him and him doubting himself and his powers. Didn't make the full jump to PTSD, but I think I was pretty close.

  • F for Spider-Man

  • Sure, MatPat, You proved his link with the disorder, but i haven't got the connection of the disorder to the loss of his powers. Like do the symptoms of PTSD include loss of spidey-powers?

  • spidey didn’t kill osborne in the fight osborne killed himself trying to kill spiderman 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Spidy didn't kill Norman, Norman killed Norman. Matpat, you know the spirit of the situations of the two deaths are different.

  • Soprillo Saxophone

  • I dont feel so good after seeing that intro green spidy

  • Look out! Here comes click bait mannnnn!

  • Hey speaking of Trauma, I want to let you know MatPat that I’m praying for you and Ronnie’s family. Hang in there!

  • Im pretty sure they were trying to say that he lost mj and thats why lost his powers,and he gained them back because 1:he and mj were getting together again 2:he was not going to let mj die,so he got the anger and love for mj,and summoned his power again

  • Spiderman lost his powers because -no far from home trailer- He got it back cuz the trailer

  • he lost his powers because he was to hungry, and a better body requires more energy

  • 4:00 you got that from Undertale

  • he lost his powers because mary jane didn't love him anymore. when he found out she was getting married, that's why he lost his powers. or at least that's what i thought

  • Guess what MatPat... Sixth time asking this...At least I think it is... Theory ideas for MatPat; 1 Is Joy from We Happy Few possible to be made in real life? 2 what happens if one takes two or three pills at once in real life?

  • As a kid watching the Spider-Man movies, I kinda just unknowingly assumed the reason he lost his powers was due to his traumatic experiences

  • Spiderman 3 boiii!!!!!!

  • He wanted a life where spiderman didn't get in the way of his personal life....... When spidermans villain gets involved with peters personal life he regains his powers

  • Matpat make a karate kid one

  • You just now figured it out?? I always thought that it was implied. Lame.

  • Holy shat when I finished watching this theory I turned on the TV and the original 2002 Spider man was playing what a coincidence

  • F

  • 1:44 What makes you think that he isn't that Spiderman? That iconic shot of the upside-down kiss seems to very much imply that he IS that Spiderman.

  • F

  • F

  • I was in this movie. I was just an extra but it is still cool to think about those days. I was in the play, wedding, and bank robbery scenes. My sister was in it too but I am not sure where.

  • Theory Man Theory Man! Here comes the Theory Man

  • F

  • Ffffffffffffff there’s the respect

  • Thank you MatPat. I needed to hear that

  • Cause he wasn’t responsible

  • Oof

  • F

  • I thought this was already a known fact

  • Okay, so I understand that Pete suffers PTSD now. It was sort of obvious rewatching the OG trilogy years after I was a kid. But can someone explain how that affects his powers? I still don’t get it. Does his suppressed desire to be free of his duties as Spider-Man affect them? Is there a biological issue that is caused by his PTSD? I don’t get it. Pls explain.

  • The Video ends at 5 minutes, after that its padding

  • F

  • F

  • F

  • the intro left me laughing so hard my mom had to ask if i was okay

  • Can you please,bring" bird box" Theory

  • F for respect

  • F

  • ADAA = American Dodgeball Association of America.

  • *sexy Bloodborne reference*

  • he loses his powers several times in the comics :^)

  • Do a theory on the new Spider-Man trailer

  • But HOW did he use his powers? This was made clear in the movie. What were the mechanics, the...SCIENCE if you will?

  • That intro is the best

  • hey matpat you should do a theory on once upon a time its one of my favorite shows and has so many plot holes (a timeline would be really cool!)

  • ,,,n

  • F

  • These intros give me life 😂

  • How is this even a theory. It was as obvious as it could possibly get. Even as a 10yo kid i perfectly understood why his powers failed him. Seriously. You're kind of running out of ideas, aren't you.

  • Hey matpat, I posted a kind of rude comment on your channel a few months ago about your videos not being very good anymore... I stand corrected. Your videos are amazing and I apologise. Keep up the great work !

  • Nah man doctor evil went back in time AND STOLE HIS MOJO!

  • Dark red emperor can do better

  • F

  • Oh boi I think I got PTSD

  • PTSD isn’t fun... don’t do traumatic events kids... not even once

  • Is it bad that I figured all this out when I was a little kid? Or was it just an easy theory to prove?

  • The truth is the more he doubt about he's power the possibility he lose being spiderman

  • I coincidentally watched this movie last night then found this video today, and I just have to say that this was totally addressed in the movie and is far from a mystery. The 'chill doctor' identified that Spidey's lack of powers could be ascribed to his poor mental state, although he said so in the most layman terms possible. So I don't think this was a mystery, because I think the movie implied it through what the doctor said and how that connected with how Peter felt throughout the film (which was clear through events, his actions, his expressions). You really just expanded on that with the ptsd thing.

  • He also lost his job at the start of the movie which has to put a lot of stress on peter because he’s always struggling to pay rent anyway

  • F

  • Spider-Mang

  • Fuck... my life is basically spidermans life. Except for the spider part.

  • This was all kinda blatantly shown in the film to explain his powers are affected by his emotions. So this isn't even a theory. You're literally stating something that was already known.

  • nop nop noooo

  • Me after watching this vid: No dah.

  • This is super obvious. Clearly it was psychological but the movie never had to explicitly say it because it was shown without them ever saying it. Enjoyable video though!

  • He lost his power because his depressed.When he needs it come back.

  • Andrew Garfield can not come back from that one

  • I actually thought Austin was going to do this one

  • Spider-weeb

  • Thank you very much for this AMAZING content. This video just made me an even bigger fan of this trilogy. Thanks a lot man!

  • Literally the entire point of the film. It’s not really a difficult thing to suss out.

  • And this is why Spider-Man 2 will forever be the second best Spidey movie. Spider-Man PS4 is the best one. TELL ME I'M WRONG!

  • f

  • I... Checked off most of the ptsd things with him... And have been doing none of the things he does to make himself feel better... Damn. Thanks spiderman.

  • My baby got the PTSDss that can be the only reason!

  • uhm... funfact..... mary jane..... is another... term.. from.. marijuana...

  • This actually helped me contact emotional trauma I buried.

  • Lucas the Spider 1:22

  • Why am I watching spider Man 2 while watching this

  • Oooooooh so this is what’s happening to lil uzi vert

  • Wrong. Spider-Man lost his powers 'cause you missed the hyphen.

  • the problem is if a superhero takes the time to get psychological help they run the risk of getting their heads caved in with a wooden mallet wielded by a sexy blond clown girl

  • Hey random person scrolling down the comments.. Have a wonderful day
