Quote:2. There are two problems with the scene in which "Jay" proposes marriage to Aunt May (and no, it's not that we all saw this coming). First of all, Jay expresses concern that Peter may not like him dating his Aunt, but May reassures him that she's sure Peter doesn't mind, thus setting up possible conflict between Peter and his Aunt dating Jay. But guess what? May is right--Peter doesn't have any problem with Jay dating his aunt. We saw him give her his blessing last issue. To set up a conflict over Peter being wary of his Aunt getting married to Jay now would be counter-productive. Second, before excepting Jay's proposal, May says how they have only known each other for a few weeks and Jay agrees that it's been fast. And oddly enough, this underscores the problem with this whole subplot. There would be nothing wrong with Jay and May getting married if we knew more about the guy doing the proposing. All we really know about him is that he's J. Jonah Jameson's long lost, estranged father and that he's a nice guy. So if we don't know enough about him, why should the story expect us to care about May getting married to this guy?
And JQ kept griping that the wedding of Peter and MJ was rushed!
