Previous Post

They tried to explain it by saying that they still lived together, so everything happened minus the vows.

The problem is, as J.M. Dematteis once said, marriage and living with your girlfriend are not the same.

The weirdest part of all, is that if they hadn't changed continuity more than that one day(as Marvel claims)why is this the thing that splits them up?

In the end of the day, yes May getting shot is tragic, but weighed against the combined experiences of:
-losing a child
- May already seemingly dying in front of Peter
- Peter's nervous breakdown
- MJs stalker
- Venom pulling a Cape Fear
- Harry Osborn's craziness in the 90s
- Kraven burying him and taking his identity
-etc.

doesn't it seem kind of like something Peter and MJ could accept and deal with, certainly mourn, but deal with?


Also, if Peter and Mary Jane decided not to get married (in 1987, our time) then why in 2007 (our time...at least a few years in comic time)...is MJ still looking so forlorn when she leaves the party in ASM #545 (and yes, I made a slight typo in my first post...I meant 545 not 546). I mean Peter and MJ had been dating and living together, but even Flash still comments that Peter and MJ aren't speaking (or something to that affect..I don't have the issue close by)....wait....they are still not talking over not getting married from a few years ago...but they lived together for years....this makes no sense. Either something else happened..or MJ really holds a grudge.

I stand by my earlier post....THIS DOES NOT MAKE SENSE. The simplest explanation is 20 1/2 years (our time) of stories are altered or never happened or.....

Anyways, I sold ALL of my Marvels from that period..and made a killing...so, who's smarter....me or Quesada??

Again, this is just my opinion but instead of agonizing over how/what/why happened...just accept that an alternate timeline was created that sling-shotted readers from Amazing Spider-Man Giant-Sized Annual #21 all the way to Amazing Spider-Man #545...it's much simpler!!

Jason

I welcome the opposite view...can anyone justify those years of stories still taking place (other than just saying...they took place)??
