>I support a single Spider-Man, that marriage was the biggest mistake in the character’s history.
I agree with Brevoort on this
I really don't understand why editors and shit hated that so much. The only thing I can think of is that most of them waifu'd Gwen and when she died MJ became public enemy number one.
While this is probably his honest opinion, a part of me can't help but think he's saying it just to get people riled up, or he at least likes the thought of his opinion getting people angry.
and this is why peter parker will always be a shell of the character he once was.
a character built on change and progress is held back from growing old, with creators making him a big manchild who fucks some asian lady who is just irresistibly attracted to him because of pheromones.
And so Stan Lee still knows better.
making Spider-Man rich was the biggest mistake ever
breaking up the marriage in the most hacky way possible was 2nd, they should have gotten a divorce or just killed off MJ and spent 2008 doing a years worth of mopey Spider-Man books.
He is literally fucking no one right now.
He fired Sajani
Maria's not asian, and not interested
His Chinese mechanic isn't interested in him and would rather be stabbing him in the back for her mom
Silk is living her own life
Watanabe hasn't show up once ever since the reboot
So which "fucking an asian lady" are you talking about?
I'm okay with single Peter, I just hate the way it was done. You can make him single again with out stepping back as a character like he did with One More Day. Make him get a divorce. It's a reality many readers, really all readers are touched with in some way and Peter Parker is a very good vehicle to explore that area. I wish they'd had a kid that stuck, because Peter Parker is at his best when he's balancing a razor's edge between the Spider-Man identity and Peter Parker. He would absolutely fail to balance a work life, a married life, and a superhero life and he wouldn't give any up so Mary Jane gives him up.
Then we'd get the show Louie but for a superhero and I really like the idea of that.
Because for the entire fanbase of a superhero to consider them getting married and having kids as the most sensible 'character development' is inherently sad. Sad that people self-insert into the character that much, and sad that they think it will magically make the character better.
>writers in the realize in the 80s that they can't change so much as a costume for more than a year without Peterfags start throwing bitchfits
>start making a different not-Peter every couple of years til now just so they can do Spider-Man stories without dealing with Peterfag editorials and 'not MUHs'
The chinese mechanic. In the first issue she calls him Peter and says that they are very close. Then they share a romantic meal on the roof of their headquarters. He might be getting that ass, because said ass is desperate to help her mommy, but he is getting it nontheless.
>His personality evolves unlike many comic book characters
>He might be getting that ass, because said ass is desperate to help her mommy, but he is getting it nontheless.
He isn't though. The girl practically says "My mom > Peter" in the most recent issue.
>Make him get a divorce. It's a reality many readers, really all readers are touched with in some way and Peter Parker is a very good vehicle to explore that area.
Young people don't get a divorce. Divorced Peter would age the character even more than giving him a family of 3 kids and a dog. A magical retcon is understandable, but not under the circumstances of making a deal with the fucking devil. That remains the single dumbest editorial decision ever made.
Not suprised, Quesada had a shitty marriage that ended in an ugly divorce and the guy reflected everything that happened to him on the comics he edited "I got divorced! Spider-Man gets divorced!" "My dad died of cancer! No one can smoke on a Marvel comic ever again!" Then there's Dan Slott who is a beta single faggot and lives his dream fantasies through Peter and by the way he writes Peter's relationships and love interests you can tell he has never been with a woman.
Brevoort granted is married and I am surprised someone would marry his fedora ass
The guy has to supports everything the EiC does and at this point he won't say Peter and MJ's marriage was great he is going to support Quesada's decision, and I say because he used to say he liked the marriage before theu got broken up.
The marriage wasn't a bad or a good thing for the character, it was just a thing and he did manage to have a lot of good stories while married, the decision to divorce him was just Quesada having a mid-life crisis and being bitter about his own failed marriage and nothing more.
>Gee what can we do to make Spidey more relateable to people?
>I know! Let's have him sell his marriage and the soul of his unborn daughter to the devil! Everyone will love that!
I still don't understand why they felt the need to elaborate that last part in the original story.
A chink, a nip, a dwarf.
Good thing Spider-man is able to date again.
Coming soon: Spider-man has to date several emissaries from Wundagore! Daily Life with Monster Girls, Spider-man version!
Ugh, WB thinks that every movie they make needs to be an epic, a repeat of the dark night. But it hurts them so much. They proven themselves not able to keep consistent quality in massive blockbuster. epic, budget movies.
Deadpool movie just did what deadpool does and is shattering records. Why can't WB learn from this?
Their original plan was to get rid of the marriage by having Mephisto go back in time and cause Peter to get Harry some help with his drug problem (and in turn prevented Sins Past and in turn prevent Norman Osborn and Gwen and Harry from dying).
A whole lot of people at Marvel objected to bringing back Gwen so they only brought back Harry.
At first they tried to hint that Harry's return was due to OMD (and even had Mary Jane reading Goethe's Faust) but then they quitely backpedaled and tried hard not to reference OMD while doing their usual fake tough-guy personas toward fans complaining about the stupid move.
Everything you need to know about Marvel choices you can find in The Life of Reilly.
There's even that one special comic about how they chose to end the Clone Saga.
Both of them had the bare bones OMD idea.
Bunch of middle aged hacks have a midlife crisis and want Spider-Man to be single again. I miss reading Spider-Man titles, but I consider One More Day to be the series finale. That shit that has happened since is not the real Spider-Man.
Yeah and at one point Byrne and Mackie had the idea that things go completely bad for Spider-Man that he would give his soul for everything to be fixed, and then the Shaper of Worlds shows up and reverts Spider-Man's life back to his high school days.
They wisely decided that was a bad idea.
I dunno about him having a bad marriage but in an old interview with him post-OMD he vaguely mentions not having a good experience with his divorce and cites it as a reason as to why he didn’t want Peter and MJ getting a divorce because to him it meant that their marriage failed so he rather had them do the deal with Mephisto.
I know at some point he got married again to a comic book editor named Nanci Dakesian.
But he was single for awhile and partied a lot with other Marvel staff so much that Gail Simone once refered to Marvel as a frat house, there is also a photo with him and a stripper mid lap dance but I am not risking posting it here.
Deadpool is literally a parody of the serious, "Dark Knight style" DC character, Deathstroke. The DC movies are "epic" because the comics are that way, and Deadpool is wacky because he was conceived as making fun of those "epics."
Why can't casuals understand this shit? You don't get people on /a/ asking why Dragon Ball Z or Hunter x Hunter can't be more like One Punch Man or BoBoBo.
The FF had progression too, especially in the classic run, as did Thor to a lesser extent.
They could have killed MJ or had them get a divorce. That would have forced some progression. Or brought Gwen's Clone back into the picture, or any number of things.
Anything would have been better than what they did.
What's weird to me is, especially in the JMS run, you could say that Peter was a better person for the marriage. He took his responsibilities seriously, because he was forced to. I just don't get why Marvel hates this so much
