To help illustrate Eddie's new-found ninja-ness, Jessica decided to have Eddie sit in what I tend to think of as the "Spider-Man" pose. Which is fitting since it's occurred to me in recent years that Spider-Man seems to have been a big subconscious influence on Satan Ninja. When I thought about it, I was sort of amazed how much Eddie McCarthy has in common with high-school era Peter Parker.

Let's see... They're both unpopular high-school seniors with glasses. Both get picked on by a popular jock who happens to date the popular blonde girl that Eddie/Peter pines for (Liz Allan in Peter's case; Veronica in Eddie's). They both are orphaned and live alone with an elderly female relative. They both accidentally get "super powers" that give them enhanced agility and strength and removes the need for them to wear their glasses... Shit.

The Amazing Spider-Man was the one comic that I read on a regular basis when I was a kid. So I guess I'm not too surprised. Still, the similarities weren't intentional. After all, Spider-Man isn't exactly '80s, even if it does contain a lot of the same '80s teen movie tropes that inspired Satan Ninja. I guess Spider-Man was just ahead of its time.
