So as I understand it, the official story of One More Day was that nothing in our established continuity changed other than that Peter and MJ didn't actually say "I do". So presumably after their aborted wedding, they went on to live like a married couple for years and never mentioned the reasons why they didn't marry. We all know that doesn't add up, so here are a few questions:

Did Peter still unmask during Civil War?

If so, did Kingpin still go after Peter, May and Mary Jane?

Was May actually shot and then made a miraculous recovery? What does May remember about this, considering she lost her memory of Peter's identity? Would she have any idea why she, Peter and MJ were on the run and living in a motel when she was shot through the window?

How did Peter and Mary Jane actually split up (considering that they were, according to the official story, a couple at least until the Mephisto deal)?

If I recall correctly, after the Mephisto deal there was a one-year time skip. What do we know about what happened in that year? I believe in that year Peter, Reed and Strange got the identity genie back in the bottle, and Harry came out as alive after all. Anything else?



I've always looked at it this way....it makes no sense!!. Mephisto can't just say...you won't be married, but everything else will stay the same. Think about any event in your life (marriage/birth of child/job change/residence change/gain a friend/lose a friend/illness/death)...can you say that if you took out any one of those things...that the rest of your life would have happened the exact same way? Of course not. The only way to reconcile this (I feel) is to say the EVERYTHING from Amazing Spider-Man Giant-Sized Annual #21 (mid-way thru) to Amazing Spider-Man #546 (last few pages)....did not happen. Mephisto created an alternate time-line, most of which we have never actually seen. Some events could have happened the same way...most would be modified..and some just wouldn't have ever happened. There, I just saved everyone 20 1/2 years of comic book buying (also every characters continuity would be modified to some degree..unless they never encountered Spidey during the period).
