It seems the new issue of the Spiderman comic has Spidy and Mary Jane breaking up. :cry:

This stinks after 20 years of marriage, if you ask me. I don't care how you "whitewash" it with reasons why it had to happen. :fiery:

And, even if they may not be quick to divorce right now, it sure doesn't sound good for the future for this couple. :?

Opinions or Comments?

I'm not surprised at all. They should never have gotten married in the first place. A crime fighter doesn't need a wife. It's just a ploy to sell more comics. I hope it backfires. :p

Spidey comics are still being made? Wow, I expected them to go out a looooong time ago.

The "One More Day" arc was the dumbest thing in the world of Spiderman. Ever. They had Peter make a deal with the devil (Mephisto) to save Aunt May, and in return...he wanted Peter and MJ's marriage.

...And somehow it resulting in Peter getting web shooters back and Harry Osborn returning to life. Originally, the writer wanted to have it so that a lot of stuff changed, making it more sensical, which would have made Gwen Stacy be alive also. Unfortunately, the editors at Marvel didn't allow this, and explained away all the continuity errors with "It's magic, we don't have to explain it."

Needless to say...* Marvel.

That is not going to sit well with Spidy fans, I think.

It can't be said better than that. The way the story has been handled makes it seem like no one (except the original main writer) even cared about explaining any of the problems it creates. Bringing back Harry Osborn (the second Green Goblin, son of the original for those that don't know) like this completely throws out the last ten years of Spider-Man history, as Harry's death set into motion some major storylines. All of the great character development Spider-Man went through has just been completely tossed aside.

The worst part by far is the character assassination of having a hero make a deal with the devil. That's a great role model for the young'uns to look up to, hey? It should make for great press when they try to make another movie, too. :roll:

Kinda funny, since the last time Marvel decided to "shake things up" and jettison the Parker marriage, the Clone Saga was born. We all know how that worked out ;p

Funny thing there is, they originally wanted Harry to be the mastermind of that saga at the end, but Bob Harras vetoed that decision and wanted to bring back Norman (an even bigger blunder, IMHO).
