I don't know, guy.

If you aren't familiar with the Spider-Man's post Civil War storyline One More Day then I'll sum things up for you: Everyone knows who Spider-man is, Aunt May gets shot as a result of this, Peter decides the only way to deal with this is SELL HIS MARRIAGE WITH MARY JANE TO MEPISTO SO AUNT MAY CAN LIVE.

Now, I won't go on and on about how fucking insane and stupid a move this was. We all know this is way way out of character for Peter Parker. We all know this goes against some of the main tenements of Spider-Man mythos (Why didn't he ask for Uncle Ben and Gwen Stacy back?). My main problem with this is... well... it's just so cruel. If any two characters in any comic series deserve to be happy and together it's Peter and Mary Jane. Marvel editor-in-chief and writer Joe Quesada doesn't think so. Yes. I'll say that again: THE FUCKING EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF MARVEL HAS UNDONE A MAJOR PART OF ONE OF THEIR MOST POPULAR CHARACTER'S LINEAGE.

Now, before I get too off-topic here, in Sunday's newspaper comic strip of Spider-Man, Peter woke up to find out this whole business with Mepisto was just a dream!

To put this bluntly: I am never reading another Marvel comic again.

Need more reasoning? Now you don't.
