    Spiderman is not having a downward cycle of popularity. He's all over pop culture & not slowing down. His long delayed Broadway play is finally getting going -you see any other characters doign that or having multi $400 million dollar grossing movies? Now why that may not translate into comic booksales is a diff story - but it ain't due to popularity.


In this case it's referring to comic book popularity. Mass Media popularity and comic book popularity are different. It's why Blade can have three movies, be in countless video games, and have a television series yet can't sustain a comic.

Spider-Man just isn't the most popular comic right now. It's probably due to the radical changes in his status quo, creative teams, stories, the alternatives like USM or other titles, readers just getting bored with the character, etc. I'm sure ASM will be one of the elite titles again, it's just not right now.
