Only this time, it makes sense. Spidey's been wanting to join the FF for a very long time. He's really close to them, considering how they consider him family and vice-versa. I think adding him to the FF just makes sense.
I agree that Spidey is a better fit on the FF than in the Avengers, but it's still something strange if you think about their livestyles. The FF are full time heroes and explorers, Peter takes pictures
Yeah but the FF are out there...people know who they are. Spiderman is different, he keeps his normal life style a secret like superman, you could say Clark kent is just a reporter but he is way more than that just like Peter.
Pete had this whole thing about not being on teams back in the 80's/90's that made a lot of sense for his character. Then Cap was like "screw that, be an Avenger" and he jumped onboard like the Cap fanboy he is. Honestly, the FF is the only team that makes sense to me for Spidey to be on. He's close to them, he had a personal connection with Johnny, and the very nature of the FF is the only thing that kept him out so long. Writers sort of ignored his aversion to teams and have put him in EVERYTHING recently, which sucks, but whatever. I like the idea. He just needs to jump ship from a Avengers book...the main Avengers team, imo, since the New Avengers may need him more in terms of brains and sales.
I think from a sales draw point of view, having Marvel's biggest names on a single book makes sense. Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, and Spidey...lot's of star power there. I would prefer if Logan and Petey stayed with the New Avengers if anything, though.
As far as the FF goes, I agree with Spidey being on the team,
