Amazing Spider Man #641


Sooo...basically, Dr.Strange (with the help of Reed Richards and Tony Stark) comes up with this way of making the entire world forget that Spider-Man is Peter Parker. I don't know exactly what that way is, besides...well, it's magic, we don't have to explain it!

Anyway, Strange makes this magic bubble for Peter to get into--it will shield him from the magic, so that he will remember his mistakes and learn from them. Against Strange's orders, Peter takes MJ with him so that she, too, will remember who Peter is.

She isn't too happy about that when she finds out.

And before you ask...yes, Joey just copied the art from One More Day and replaced the word bubbles.

Peter and MJ break up.

So, back in present time, Mary Jane and Peter are talking with each other about where they stand.

Who could that special person be for Peter, you ask? Surely it couldn't be...Carlie Cooper, the perfect mate for Peter, who just so happens to be named after Joe Quesada's daughter?

Well, in the next issue...

OMG, you guys! Even Mary Jane likes Carlie Cooper and thinks she's ideal for Peter! And she understands Peter so much! Isn't she JUST GREAT?

Just Jean going "SCOTT YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND" then dying

and then while dead being like "SCOTT, LIVE, BE FREE (my life doesnt matter btw lol), /SHIPS EMMASCOTT"

It just comes off as so phony and bad

well, at least with that it was a matter of shipping Emma and Scott or watching Scott just let the world go to hell. When she fixed them up she was also saving Beast and just about everyone in the X-mansion.

But why couldn't she have just stopped Beast from taking the kick?

Yes, yes, the plot was revolving to rationalize the decision and "blessing", but it doesn't take away from the fact that a female lover was seen as holding a man back, and was killed off and put on a bus (temporary? ) to sacrifice for Scott's "happiness" and set him free to be with someone else and yadda yadda. It's a dumb trope.

maybe it's just me but I think she was more pushing him forward. Scott's nature makes him prefer to focus on the past more than anything. Jean was alreay sacrified in a seperate storyline, so what did she sacrifice pushing him and Emma? She already knows he's capable of loving other women.

I'd say the difference, though, is that Jean had good reason to do that--what with dying, wanting Scott to be happy, and both sides were kinda losing each other anyway. It also helps that it was written by Grant Morrison, who, unlike Quesada, is a very skilled writer.
