Ditko and Romita fans rejoice: here is your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man! Like other high-school kids, Peter has insecurities, a worried aunt, awkward social dynamics, an infectious youthful exuberance, and a tough time to balance everything in his life. Unlike any other kid, that life includes amazing superpowers.

This edit thankfully removes Tony Stark's reboot of Uncle Ben's famous "With great power comes great responsibility". Without the voice-over, the visual is all the stronger. Peter comes into his own as Spider-Man under his own power.

The Ramones' song is so perfect as a rousing finale, that you'll be hard-pressed to remember what music was there in the original.

Overall editing is outstanding. Technically invisible and strengthening the narrative. Removing "8 years" sadly also cuts the Vulture landing in his lair, and I would have liked to keep one "hot" Aunt May joke. Maybe the latter depends on the age of the viewer? Is aunt May your parents' age or your own age?

To sum up, this edit convincingly replaces the original. Excelsior!
