Poor Spider-Man

Fortunately for me, I haven't been reading the latest Spider-Man story-line, especially the whole "One More Day" tripe. I can't help feeling rather sorry for the poor schlub however. And, like any number of other commentators, I can't help feeling that giving up his love and marriage to MJ, in order to grant his incredibly ancient Aunt a couple more weeks of life, is an utterly moronic thing to do.

Aunt May is OLD. 150 at least. She's died a couple of times already hasn't she? And she's always having heart-attacks and things. Needless to say, she's lived a LONG and FULL life. It was moving and heartfelt the first time that she "died", when Peter made the quote from "Peter Pan" and all. My stony heart melted, and I sniffled quite a bit. Not this time. My reaction was more along the lines of "You Moron!"

And using Mephisto as the engine to move this story along? Meh. He's not a Spider-Man villain, and never has been. I would say that the odds are, he wouldn't know who Peter Parker was, if Peter walked up and kicked him in the ass. Why the HELL would Mephisto give a rat's patootie about Peter and MJ's marriage? Or ANYbody's? Shouldn't he be off torturing Dr. Doom's mother or something?

I guess Joe Quesada is happy. He must be about the only one. He's been whining for ages about what a mistake having Peter be happy and married is, and now he CAN have Peter dating, and downloading porn. No, I did not make that last bit up. Besides, if you want to see pre-marriage Peter, just go and read Ultimate Spider-Man, which is actually the ONLY Spider book that I am currently reading.

I started getting disenchanted with Marvel when "Civil War" came along, and really, I haven't seen anything lately that could possibly change my mind and re-embrace it. Well...I like Thor a lot, and Nextwave was fabulous, and I understand that Capt. America and Daredevil are pretty good. Not a whole lot to chose from, really.

I know, maybe MJ was really...a SKRULL! That would have made about as much sense. Oh wait...they already did that with Johnny Storm and Alicia. Oops.

Only eight more days till Green Lantern #25 is out!

My hubby, the lifelong Spider-Man fan, has pretty much abandoned the current series -- all of the current series. (Well, actually ... he IS reading the current Spider-Man/Red Sonja series, mostly for the humor factor -- and, of course, for the chainmail bikini. ;->) He wasn't too enthralled with the last movie, either. He's just content to sit and read his Marvel Essentials collections of the '60s and '70s Spidey -- though he does occasionally emit sad sighs (no doubt longing for past glories, the poor fellow). :-(

How about MJ as a skrull revealed when she/it dies as a result of radioactive Spider-Spunk. That should make Joey Q happy!

I'm getting The Jibblies just thinking about it..

What rly bothers me is that Auny May's alrdy BEEN dead, and Peter didn't like... sacrifice his friends and family in some desperate attempt to get her back. Why doesn't he do this for Uncle Ben too? :\

Death is a part of life and it's sad that Peter and Joe Q dun seem to get this. You'd think PETER WOULD GET IT. HOW many deaths have alrdy happened in his life?

Mephisto can't go back to torturing Doom's mom because...

The whole idea is just so...absurd! Seriously, this is the best thing they could come up with?


Sea, Mr. Sea must be so depressed, poor baby.

Soup, your idea makes TONS more sense.

Ami, you're right of course.

Oh Dwayne!
