In the long run of hacked emails that have emerged from the Sony this year, few pop culture figures have been publicly ravaged more than comic book hero Spider-Man. The character was one of the founding pillars of what has become the behemoth comic book movie industry in the early 2000s, but since then have been running through the wrung of bad business decisions by Sony Pictures, which rebooted the film series from the original Sam Raimi-directed Tobey Macguire-led trilogy to much less loved Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man movies in 2012 and 2014.

Now, amidst another rebooting rumors and constant struggles from Marvel to regain the rights to one of its most iconic figures, yet another series of leaks has emerged to further destroy Spider-Man's constantly deteriorating movie presence. In a 2011 leak obtained by Gawker, agreements between Sony and Marvel found that the character must have very rigid traits, channeling much of the early Spider-Man comic origins. The "Mandatory Traits" dictate that Spider-Man (regardless of whether its Peter Parker or not) must: Be male; not torture; cannot kill; smoke, drink, or consume any drugs; have sex before the age of 16; or be homosexual.

Further notes are far more typical with the Spider-Man story, including his Caucasian lineage, which was also a must. These notes, surprisingly, came a month after Marvel began to issue Spider-Man stories not with the aforementioned Peter Parker, but with Miles Morales (Parker was killed in the series August 2011 issue) - a character of black and Hispanic descent.

Rumors are still flying about a third installment in the Amazing Spider-Man film series with Andrew Garfield, which looks like it's "definitely happening." We'll just keep waiting until Marvel takes the whole thing back and rightfully places it alongside the rest of the Avengers.
