No arguments there! . . . except that, if there's going to be another lighter book (which is what I'd anticipate from Slott), I'd like to see it go to Zeb Wells. There's someone with tons of potential for a mainstream Spider-Man book.

Why? He's written a his fair share of dark and heavier stories too. He writes in the tone that best serves the title, it just happens that he's been assigned a lot more "light" titles than "heavy". When he's assigned something dark (like Arkham Asylum or Avengers: The Initiative) he does dark. When he's assigned something humorous (Ren & Stimpy) he does humorous. When he's assigned big colourful action (The Thing) he does big colourful action.

He's gone on record to say that if he was ever assigned Amazing Spider-Man it wouldn't all be jokes and tea parties, there would be some of the bleaker elements there that have been long associated with the character.

Was Spider-Man/Human Torch light-hearted? For the most part, yes. But that wasn't Amazing Spider-Man, it was Spider-Man/Human Torch. When have Spider-Man and Human Torch team-ups not been light-hearted?
