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?

Theory-Man, Theory-Man!
Does whatever a theorist can!
Spots details, with his eyes!
He's got stories, to theorize!
Look out! Here comes the Theory-Man!
Uses words, doesn't fight!
("Can't we agree to disagree?")
He has memorized, Mario's height!
In the theories, in his head,
Can say that the character's dead!
Look out! Here comes the Theory-Man!

Jokes aside this is the most wholesome video about a superhero suffering from mental health I have ever seen.

It may not the original intention of the director or it was either one this put in an even better depth of the Spiderman trilogy and made the second one (which it could be the best out of all three) even better than before.
