    I mean I watched those movies when I was like 14 and even I remember putting together that 'spiderman lost his powers because bad things are happening to him and the powers are somehow tied to his emotions and belief in himself' so i never really considered it a mystery that they stopped working u just have to,,,, not be stupid

    How is this theory worthy, because I can't be the only one who found this blatantly obvious the first time they watched it as a kid

    I thought (in my teenage years) he lost his powers because he was starting to stop loving Mary Jane.

    Think about it, the spider has bitten Peter when he was taking pictures of her, he was in love. When Mary got engaged the reality that he won't be able to be with her makes him lost his powers. And everytime he sees Mary with his friend the reality weighs like an anvil to the ground.
    That's why in the end of spider-man 2 his powers got back just to save her.
    And that's why at the end of SM2 Mary run away of her wedding to Peter's house, and Peter got back at the spider-man life full recovered.

    I thought they explained it as psychosomatic because of his struggle to fit his human world with his hero world. He went to the doctor and everything.

    Real fans who actually pay attention to the moview knew why Peter lost his powers. The only thing that wasn't answered is why his powers returned at that very moment. Not slowly or one by one, like the way he lost them. All the powers came back at once with full strength right into that moment in restaurant.
    This is what wasn't answered.

    It was obvious it was stress. I thought he was going to explain actual science why his specific powers failed due to chemical/psychological changes that occur in the body when under stress, but I guess not. Saying “he was stressed” could have been inferred from the movies - this is not a theory. Disappointed.

    I really like the video(and you for that matter) but while we are on the Spiderman topic you should dissect something from Spider-Man homecoming or even the new car from home trailer. Just a suggestion 🙂

    I assumed his body "felt" he hated being Spider-Man & his body said "Fuck it, don't have powers then." & then when he did want to be Spider-Man again, his body gave powers back.

    It is also important to note how Peter's loss and regaining of his powers has a lot to do with how he feels about Mary Jane. The first time his powers fail comes directly after he sees MJ kissing John. When he loses his powers later and ultimately gives up being Spider-Man, it comes directly after he witnesses MJ and John getting engaged. When his powers finally do come back, it is right when MJ gets captured by Doc Ock.

    Well in the 90s Spider-Man he loses his power because he was undergoing a mutation into the man spider so maybe there was a plan to do the man spider if they got past the 3rd movie

    I, for one, love Turn Off The Dark. It is a technical marvel and is a living comic book. Sure, the Arachne subplot may have been a tad taboo and not needed but it added to the absurdity, which aided in the show's favor. It took one tone and ran with it

    it's funny, I've actually always thought that he lost his powers because of the the things that happened to him and him doubting himself and his powers. Didn't make the full jump to PTSD, but I think I was pretty close.

    Sure, MatPat, You proved his link with the disorder, but i haven't got the connection of the disorder to the loss of his powers. Like do the symptoms of PTSD include loss of spidey-powers?

    Im pretty sure they were trying to say that he lost mj and thats why lost his powers,and he gained them back because
    1:he and mj were getting together again
    2:he was not going to let mj die,so he got the anger and love for mj,and summoned his power again

    1 Is Joy from We Happy Few possible to be made in real life?
    2 what happens if one takes two or three pills at once in real life?

    Okay, so I understand that Pete suffers PTSD now. It was sort of obvious rewatching the OG trilogy years after I was a kid. But can someone explain how that affects his powers? I still don’t get it. Does his suppressed desire to be free of his duties as Spider-Man affect them? Is there a biological issue that is caused by his PTSD? I don’t get it. Pls explain.
