It was never meant to be an all-inclusive statement, and what's weird is that a
number of people, including critics, have taken it as such. It covers most of
them, but it sure as heck doesn't cover ALL of them, nor was it intended to.
There's no rule or yellow tape around Spidey saying "Totems Only." So there
are going to be any number that don't, the only issue was that there are
thematic connections between many of them.

I'm open to it.
