I've been racking my brain, trying to come up with one, but can't seem to do it. Anyone else have ideas?

Spider-Man has had five perfect endings already,

"Spider-Girl: The End" from 2010 (his daughter Mayday finds love with someone who knows her secret in Wes), and the 2009 mini-series "The Real Clone Saga" (a Clone Saga rewrite where everyone lives and Mayday is not abducted, Peter retires, the door left open for new adventures)

The newspaper strip also has a very affirming final sunday strip where Peter and MJ walk off into the sunset together.

"To Have and to Hold" is highly revered, often referenced by Spencer in his run, I would also nominate it as a series finale. If you follow the one-above-all's word, Peter and MJ in 616 ultimately overcome all the odds and have two kids called Mary and Benjy, as reveled in the story "The Book of Peter", so you can assume after Peter and MJ leap off the ESb, the events of OMIT occur but they simply stay together and live that very future.

Renew Your Vows saw Peter and MJ raise their daughter Annie, teaching her the tricks of the trade that she uses to master her destiny as the pattern weaver of the great web, effectively making them far more important than the 616 versions.

The story of Peter Parker should, ideally, just end with him as a grown and accomplished everyman. A father, a husband, a hero.
