Spider-Man is all about using his powers responsibly, right? My question is, can he really do that as part of the New Avengers? So far, they are avoiding the Mighty Avengers, SHIELD and Brother Voodoo. Yes, they are fighting ninjas, but I'm a little hazy on what's responsible about that?

Now, "One More Day" might resolve Spider-Man's fugitive status, but he really can't use his powers in a heroic fashion if he is constantly running and hiding. Now, this might be a problem with all the Spider-Man books right now post-Civil War, but it seems to be worse in New Avengers.

Anyone agree? Disagree? This isn't saying I don't like Spider-Man in the Avengers or that I don't like Bendis writing him. It just seems to me that Peter Parker has never been the run and hide type. He had to do that too often before he got his powers so bullies wouldn't pound him.

Absolutely he can be responsible as a part of the New Avengers. Being responsible isn't about obeying the law. It's about doing the right thing. And how is rescuing someone who has been kidnapped not responsible?

Sure he can. He's been doing the same thing for years and years.
