    Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marvel Comics fanSo here’s a picture of Philip Seymour Hoffman, circa 1987, hanging out in a dreadfully maintained NYU dorm room. In addition to piled-up plates, discarded socks, buckling bookshelves, and unshuttable drawers, there are issues of Spin and Vanity Fair and Playbill strewn across the room.  But what’s that behind Hoffman’s shoulder, given pride of place, neatly hung above the desk, safe from the maelstrom? Two issues of The Amazing Spider-Man. As if we needed one more thing to love about Philip Seymour Hoffman, he was the kind of guy who actually put superhero comic books on his walls in college.Rest in peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman. We already miss you.
