Kevin Church has the last word on “One More Day/Brand New Day”:
My take? They’ve reset things to the point where they’re now telling stories about a single 30something nerd that lives with his mother figure, has dated two girls, and is perpetually broke.
This is Marvel’s attempt to “relate” to their average fan, isn’t it?
Oh no he ditn’t! Look, we’ve milked this thing as much as the next blog, but we’re kinda sick of the wildly over the top reactions.
Do you remember when Superman and Lois Lane were married because they got married on LOIS & CLARK?
Neither do we.
How many fans are going to do as Joe Quesada suggested:
The truth of the matter is that if the fans truly want a married Peter and MJ with kids, then we have an incredible book called “Spider-Girl.” If this is truly what fandom wants, to see Peter go through the natural progressions of life, then I expect orders on “Spider-Girl” to go through the roof in the next month.
That will be the real test.
