It appears that Slott is going to be leaving (That's hard to believe.), so who should the next writer be? Spencer is not one of my favorite writers (From what I've read of his Captain America.), but Superior Foes did seem to be pretty good, and he did say that Spidey is his favorite character. But I would LOVE to see Grant Morrison take on the reins. He likes the DC characters more, but he has done some good work on the Marvel characters (The Fantastic Four and The X-Men.). I would love to see him on Spidey. He's shown that he can write more down-to-earth heroes like Batman and Animal Man, and I think that he can bring a unique take to the character and to the mythology. I think that Brand New Day has really regressed the character, but I would definitely check it out if Morrison took the reigns. I don't think that this is going to happen, but I certainly wish for this.

Mark Millar. Spider-Man fans have suffered for so long. Maybe Mark and his horrible writing can finally finish Peter off and give him the rest he deserves.

I think that David Micheline hasn't done anything in about 3 or 4 years. Bob Layton just does covers.

Stan Lee wouldn't be able to make a deadline.

Joss Whedon, maybe but he would want to probably make more deals with the devil to make more outrageous changes to characters if he stayed on long enough.

I say let Chip Zdarsky or Robbie Thompson take over the title.

J.M. Dematteis solidified the marriage with Kraven's Last Hunt, and has said he believes the marriage will come back eventually, since "it is a good idea and in comics good ideas always come back."

He is also still working and making deadlines, and has a history of good character work for both Pete and MJ.

What about him being to Spider-man what Dan Jurgens was for Superman in Action comics, someone to spend a few years righting the ship so others can set teh course people want.

Of course, I don't believe the marriage will be restored, and I won't buy Spider-Man regularly unless it ism so...

If the next writer really is going to reverse the mindwipe (although there's no proof that it will happen), they it would be fitting if it was JMS. He was outspoken about how he disagreed with One More Day and wanted his name removed from it. Peter and MJ's relationship never seemed more realistic than it did under him. It was also the last time I liked Aunt May.

Someone would have to stop some of his crazier ideas, though. After the marriage is back, the next thing I'll be fighting to get retcon'd is the Gwen/Osborn affair.




And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!

Almost anyone else. He's very near the bottom of the list.

Spencer is versatile. My take on his work is actually the opposite of yours--I didn't like Superior Foes, which ignored decades of characterization for jokes, but I've quite liked his work with Captain America (and yes, I see the irony in that statement, but Steve Rogers's established characterization changed because of the Cosmic Cube, so it's not quite the same). I wouldn't be excited if Spencer were the choice, but I'd be fine with it.

My understanding of Grant Morrison is that he tends toward the trippy and incomprehensible, though he can also be very good at times. I'm not especially familiar with him myself, but I have trouble seeing him as a fit for the character. Still, I'd read it.

Personally, I'd suggest Mark Waid. He's one of Marvel's most reliable, he's done definitive runs on multiple characters, and he has yet to take on Spider-Man solo.

But I'll give it a shot no matter who the new writer is.

Well amazing 800 might, keyword might, wrap up the Mephisto Mindwipe and restore things. That is the rumor.

It has been 10 years since Joe Q shoved that story down our throats.....a story so out of character for the hero......much like Emerald Twilight was for Hal Jordan and it took 10 years I believe to restore Hal and the GLC.....

Renew Your Vows while interesting at times, is merely a bone thrown to the fans to attempt to pacify the haters of the Mephisto Mindwipe, and no I am not pacified. It is an alternate reality that will likely never impact the main time line at all, and if the marriage does get restored in the main books then Renew Your Vows likely gets canned. So I'm not investing in that at all.

I believe that was a Steve Gerber story, not Roy Thomas.would LOVE for those rumors to be true. I just don't have that much faith in Marvel these days.

However, I do think it is interesting that they aged up Annie and started to focus on her in Renew Your Vows. It could, remember COULD, be that they want to try and keep both series going.

And yes, I agree. I enjoyed Renew Your Vows... more or less. So much, I have a letter printed in their third issue, about the first. But I knew what they were doing, and was aggravated by it. I knew from the mini series that predated it, it was just a "There, now shut the Hell up and leave me alone" story.

I may not believe in the rumors, but I will still pick up issue #800 to be on the safe side.
