ONE MORE DAY, Seriously???

MARVEL! Don’t you dare play with my emotions!!

It’s not enough that the House of Ideas seems to be teasing an all consuming universe extravaganza for 2015 but now they’re adding One More Day to the literary mix.

Oh Spider-Man fans you remember that pile of dog crap right? The one where Peter Parker finds himself faced with the imminent death of his dear Aunt May, a woman who’s already seen most of her close friends pass on, decided to make a deal with Mephisto. The once and future web-slinger sold his marriage and prevented the birth of his daughter, someone who apparently will be a threat to mister big, red and scary. Thus his union with Mary Jane ended in a way that the head editor’s were on board with.

Spider-Man Renew Your Vows

To say that I hated this story line would be an understatement. I’ve been buying Spidey comics since I was a kid and this arc made me want to stop. There were things that bothered me during the reign of J. Michael Straczynski but never did the author push me that far. I reconcile all that with the fact that it did bring us a cool new era via Brand New Day. Which for all intents and purposes, actually turned out to be a good thing. All the side series got the ax and only ASM survived the ordeal.

And here we are in 2015 and the creative heads seem primed to open up that wound, which they’ve done before (One Moment In Time), but should anyone even care?

What say you my fellow fanboys and fangirls? Do you want to see this or not?

    To be fair it’s Joe Quesada that deserves most of the blame for One More Day.

    Frankly, I just wanna see Pete and MJ back together. I do wish that Marvel would come up with some new, fresh, original material though.

    I loved One More Day. No joke. I have hated almost everything since, but that storyline hit me. I love Petey and MJ, so even though the storyline destroyed their marriage, I connected to it and the emotions throughout. I liked OMIT, too. Same reason. I have shed tears to these tales. The thing I most looked forward to for a while was them getting together even after Mephisto teared them apart. I figured they would eventually do the whole can’t keep true love apart thing, but sadly, nope.

    Unless it fixes all the things one more day ruined, I don’t see why Marvel needs to revisit this.

    one more day was a bad story that led into something fresh and new, like we had to figure out a particularly temperamental lock before we could walk through the door

  • Marcell Hines

    One More Day was an abomination from both a story telling standpoint AND a Spider-Man character standpoint. Logic was present nowhere in the narrative and the ending only suceeded in regressing Peter to how he was when he first started. They refused to let him grow up and be a man because apparently marriage makes characters unrelatable. Not even getting to the fact that the only reason Mephisto was brought in to break them up was because Joe Quesada is catholic and doesn’t believe in divorce (although that’s mostly speculation). Because you know having possibly Marvel’s most noble hero make a deal with the DEVIL was a better option than signing a few papers.
