Pointless. That's the best word to describe most of the major Spider-Man "events" of recent years. Lately, the House of Ideas has been the House of Wasted Ideas as none of the "major" events seem to have been followed up on or even remembered a few issues later.
Disassembled -- Forgotten and redone in The Other
House of M -- Memories and angst from them never appear again
The Other -- Any writer but PAD remember this even happened?
Civil War -- Alright, I'll grant that the Civil War/Iron Man/Iron Spider had impact
Unmasked -- Tons of story potential but once again only PAD seemed to use it for any substance. Could most of the stories in the other titles have been told without it? Pretty much. But, credit to writers for at least remembering this happened.
Back in Black -- Climaxed in Part 4. Part 5 went nowhere. Aside from the costume, ignored in other Spider-Man appearances. (see New Avengers)
Of course, if OMD/BND is a retcon or "reset" then pretty much all of JMS's run (or further back depending on how far they take it) has been pointless.
I'll give OMD a chance, but if 20 years of character development are suddenly made pointless, seems to me like OMD will be a good jumping off point.
> I don't think I'm going to get it.
> I know I'll be picking up "Brand New Day" (some of my favorite writers are working on that revamp), but I'm still not sold on "One More Day". I guess it's because Spidey's been put through the wringer so many times lately, and we've been told to buy all these mini-events and they've been absolutely bad.
> The Other was shockingly bad (except for Peter David's parts).
> Back in Black (in Amazing) was pointless and anticlimactic, and made my childhood hero a complete nutcase.
> Will OMD be any better? Especially because it's by the same guy who did the aforementioned "events"?
> So...what about the rest of youse?
> Captain Nas-Vell!
