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.
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?
