Current Marvel doesn't get Spider-Man.

Dan Slott spilled the beans on the new Parker Spidey book.

“Peter Parker has stepped up,” writer Dan Slott says. “He’s grown. He’s become the Peter Parker we’ve always hoped he was going to be. This company, with Peter’s inventions and Peter’s gumption has gone to new heights.”
“The things this suit will be able to do and the innovations that Peter Parker has put into it will be astounding,” Slott said, “and when you want to take something to the next level, you go, and make it look real, you go, ’hey Alex Ross, take your best shot.’ ”
On top of all that, Peter’s also got a new ride in the Spider-Mobile, redesigned by series artist Giuseppe Camuncoli, and editor Nick Lowe says, “you see it in the very first issue driving around the streets of Shanghai.” 
Peter Parker has his own tech company, has a superhero suit and a car... and with the whole Miles Morales moving into the main universe and Peter being somewhat of a Mentor figure to him, we can say that, Dan Slott wants Spider-Man to be someone else...

Peter is supposed to be the more "everyman" hero of the Marvel Universe. He is not loaded, has to struggle to make ends meet DUE to his  Superheroics. The rich captain of industry that happens to be a superhero on the side is a Tony thing... not a Pete thing. The Pete thing is going to get some milk from the convenience store at 6:30 PM and return the next day at 3:00 PM because of Supervillains attacking Times Square kind of thing.

Seems to me that Modern Marvel doesn't get Peter Parker... (and they haven't ever since Joe Quesada took over.) but this reeks of making Parker crappy so we all embrace Morales.
