what r u talking about? even within the comics there's multiple versions of each character's "persona". the first two raimi spider-man movies were so on point in this category. they were an homage to the original golden-age spider-man. the first two movies oozed that cheesy goodness that you find in comic books from the 60's - 70's.
Spider-Man wasn't a golden age superhero,he was around during the silver age of comic books..
And no, I wouldn't say they were really that great but I know they followed/were inspired by some pretty important plotlines in the comics. It's been a while since I've seen the first two films but from what I remember the Spider-man 2 film was inspired by the Spider-Man No More story and the first film had some elements of the gwen stacy story arc even though she wasn't even in the first film lol. (The part where the green goblin dies by his own glider was taken from "the night gwen stacey died" story arc).
