cyberghostface: (Spidey & MJ)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

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?

Oh is Spider-Man still being published? I wouldn't know. I stuck to my damn promise and will keep it.

Why would Tony Stark, who wanted Peter arrested for his betrayal, help with this..?

Actually why do I care enough to even ponder that? This is... just not good.

Wow, I can totally relate to Peter now!

This is just the most HILARIOUS outlook on love. And the entire condescending tone to its readership and said maturity levels. Like, okay, relationships only exist for you, as a person, as long as they excite you with complete and utter novelty. Otherwise, they are expendable, particularly in a market of many other options and choices, who are all titillating and will make YOU a more exciting person to pursue. After said relationship is disposed of, the person you no longer have romantic use for in your life will extol the virtues of a "one true love" and the "right girl" out there for you, ignoring how temporary, circumstantial, and dependent on linear states of mind the "one" is. After all, MJ was Peter's "the one" ....for.......


But, alas, this is an absolute new start for Peter! Nothing about his actual character will probably develop, and he will just be set up to square one of "down on his luck" repeatedly so we can just build him to get in kind of good with a job, or a girl, or whatever, and it will all be NEW AND EXCITING and novel! And look, MJ is so selfless! She can see she wasn't good for Peter in the end -- for um, absolutely no reason other than uh ...the right "one" is out there, somewhere, for him.

PS my gf said Carlie looks like peggy hill there. and i agree.

So is Quesada's problem with the marriage, or with MJ?

Also, lol, "She set me free"

What were you imprisoned by, you overgrown man child?

I love how his smile is just like "YAY I GET TO FUCK AROUND NOW!"

Goblin, Peter Parker's girlfriend? Let me guess. He throws her off of a bridge and she lives.

And I just want to say I am so mucho sick of this "best friend" shtick when a redhead has to go and set her man 'free"

MJ and Jean, man. Like, really? They are your best friend? It's so convenient and awesome that you say that now because you get to go and be written about WITHOUT them and without probably ever showing any real best friend moments in your bond again :D !! LOL

I want Carlie to be the new Gwen Stacy.

...Only instead of falling from a bridge, I'd like to see her eaten by Venom.

I'm sure that everyone will say their problems with OMIT better than I can, but I will say this--#642, while continuing the horrible Mary Sue-ism with Carlie and having some odd, sometimes down-right ugly art, is the first and only comic I can think of where a super-villain is giving birth while being chanced by other super-villains with her goblin glider.

That's just a moment of pure absurdity and awful hysterics that it kinda needs to be commended, I feel.

...So he broke up an established relationship to pair Peter up with Joe Q's daughter?

Huh, kind of the Bizarro version of Stargirl being based on Geoff John's dead sister, so as a result she was banned from having a physical relationship with anyone for years and years and years.

Knowing that there is other Spidey stuff I can fall back on, I don't really care about this.

So...what was the point of this storyline? Because it seems like it was a big waste of paper to revisit something that didn't need to be revisited, all while failing to do anything with the characters.

For a change this time they do explain it, in pages that you missed out.

Of course they use so much 'Star Trek TNG' style technobabble in the explanation that they probably would have been better off following your assertion and just saying "It's magic..leave it at that..

Dammed if you do, dammned if you don't. (No pun intended...Well, not much at any rate.. ;) )

"She set me free."

So...isn't a part of his soul supposed to be screaming for eternity without MJ's love or something?

Spiderman will someday be the reason that Joe Q leaves Marvel and no one will miss him.

Yeah, 'cause it's not like MJ hasn't been characterized as tough and resilient since literally before I was born or anything. Yawn.

MJ: Peter, I can't be with you. It just puts my family at too much risk. But you should totally get together with Carlie. Her family is a bunch of douches.

I like how they seem to expect people to care about BNDverse-Spidey's intrinsically meaningless relationships. It's so weird.

Thank you Quesada for associating (i.e. ruin) a semi-decent, somewhat bland Whitney Houston song with this tripe.
