The Spidey-MJ tandem

Marvel's EIC, Joe Quesada was very vocal that the marriage of Peter and MJ was "destroying" Spider-Man. Marvel then announced the final story arc of J. Michael Stracynszki in Amazing Spider-Man called "One More Day" and it was to be drawn by Quesada himself. So in 2008, Peter and MJ's marriage was removed from continuity in order to save Aunt May. Mephisto/ the devil, promised to save Aunt May's life in exchange for Peter and MJ's love. Why? Because the love between Peter and MJ was a unique one. It wasn't like any other love... So Peter agreed but MJ made a separate deal with Mephisto just to make sure it wouldn't backfire. It wasn't said in the story but I believe that Peter forgets everything but MJ remembers.

So thus Brand New Day.

And now, Amazing Spider-Man #600 is coming up in a few weeks. And it's supposed to be HUGE. It's the return of Mary Jane!!!

Here's a preview of #601

I've always been a fan of Peter and MJ. They've been through EVERYTHING! It's nice to see how the story will unfold now. Will Marvel correct the mistake???

It's really awesome that Marvel puts that human touch to it. There's this element of sacrifice involved for a loved one. I can imagine MJ feeling bad that Peter doesn't remember anything while she remembers everything! It's so brilliant! The people who you love the most can actually be the ones to hurt you the most! It's genius! \m/ Rock on Marvel!

I can't wait to see how the story goes! But I've said it before and I'll say it again. Spider-Man and Mary Jane forever!!!
