I'm sorry but at the risk of a minor flame you sound like an idiot here. If you are going to go around the board defending BND at every turn that's fine. If you then enjoy BND when you read it that's great. But to post something like the above and then turn around and accuse everyone else of being a reactionary (when you are obviously being one in the opposite direction) just makes you look foolish.

As for the issue, I did read a copy (though I did not give them my money) and it isn't bad. I don't think anyone expected Slott to turn in a lousy story. The issue is that there are already books for this type of thing (Ultimate, Adventures, some new brand they decide to make up) and there was no need to scorch the earth of mainstream continuity.

Now, people who like a married Peter have nothing to read while people who like a single Peter have even more books to read. No one that I've seen on this board has questioned the talkent of Slott or McNiven

I agree with his statement about the marriage bringing a stability to the character that changed his stories drastically. While he may be a bit enthusiastic, he certainly didn't sound like an idiot. There is truth to the statement that a healthy marriage has a comforting effect to it due to the sense of stability it allows.
