Marvel's obsession with Spider-Man mentors is bad for the character

After Tony Stark / Iron Man's death we all assumed that Spider-Man would finally be alone on his journey as a superhero, now they have announced that Doctor Strange will be his new mentor.

Peter Parker / Spider-Man was introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the film Captain America: Civil War (2016). Tony Stark He goes to the house of a young man with powers who uploads videos to YouTube and convinces him to fight against other Marvel heroes. After that movie, they released Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), where Peter parker showed that he was still impacted by Tony Stark and sought their approval at all times. So Iron Man served as the mentor.

The relationship remained the same in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), while in Avengers: Endgame (2019) Tony Stark died and at that moment it seemed that Peter parker he could go on with his life alone, but then Nick fury was the one who "took care" of him in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). It has now been reported that in Spider-man 3 will be the Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) who occupies that position.

Do you really need a mentor?

Maybe it was a good idea that after the way they introduced Spider-man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had someone the weight of Hombre de Hierro next to him. Especially to distance himself from the previous versions played by Tobey Maguire Y Andrew Garfield. But after all the events of Avengers: Endgame, maybe they should let her life and her solo hero path go on. While it is true that the movie Spider-man 3 will offer a very complicated situation for Peter parker, if we follow his story in the comics, there is nothing he cannot overcome thanks to his powers, his wit and his intelligence.

Spider-Man: Far From Home leave it to Peter parker in an extremely complex situation. As Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) he revealed his identity to the world and further accused the hero of his murder. Therefore, not only will the villains go after him, but the law enforcement officers will also be looking for him. Which means that all the help you receive will be welcome, which is why it is fascinating that Doctor Strange has its appearance, but Marvel's obsession with mentoring Spider-man it's bad for the character. Since he limits all his potential and treats him as if he were a young man who does not stand up for himself, when he has shown on many occasions that although he is quite reckless, he is usually victorious.

Although rumors also indicate that in the film Spider-man 3 We will see the Marvel multiverse. So, Doctor Strange It will be of great help without a doubt, especially if it faces villains like Electro, The Vulture and other surprises that Marvel is preparing.
