I always liked the ending Fabian Nicieza gave him back in Final Adventure: He retires from being Spider-Man because there is "no greater responsibility" than raising a child, but still has the occasional impulse to put on the costume. Then he has one last fight where he loses his powers and lives a normal life, while doing what he can to help others in little ways.

But I think he actually needs the happy ending, with maybe a trace a bad luck. Just to be nostalgic, I kinda liked the ending I came up way back when (of course, then Garth Ennis "stole" it for a character in Punisher ;\) ). After a big adventure with all the obligatory bells and whistles, Peter (powerless natch) and Mary Jane are reunited with Baby May. The future looks bright and he's probably the happiest he's ever been. And then a bird craps on his head. (Ah memories...)

I would've been happy with that ending to actually.

Heh. That would be perfect. \:\)
