I dropped Amazing Spider-Man a year or two ago, so I haven’t been following all the stuff leading up to the “One More Day” story. I’ve read a bunch of the online reaction to the conclusion to this story though. This article at Newsarama sums up some of the conflict between JMS and Joe Quesada on the matter. I don’t think that I’d be happy with either of their approaches to this story. It doesn’t really seem like a story they needed to tell at all. I do agree with JMS that Joe Q genuinely cares about the character, and is doing what he thinks is right. I’m actually wondering if they’re going to undo this whole thing at some point and just go back to Peter and MJ being married. The whole point of the story might be to set up an arc that ends with the whole retcon being undone. That might be interesting.
Either way, I have to admit that I’m not really much interested in the Marvel Universe right now. I did enjoy Civil War, for the most part, but I wasn’t too happy with some of the character changes made during the course of that event.
