Something I'm not clear on: were they a couple that broke up? I thought in the first issue, Lois said that she and Clark were never an item?

While I agree that this is on a whole much better written, I have to be fair to Slott and say that a full retcon of a relationship into never happening as your starting line is probably easier to work with than whatever the weird status of Peter and MJ is. Because right now, they're having a hard time deciding what exactly MJ's role is supposed to be as a supporting character if not Peter's love interest, so she's just presented really badly at the moment. I think the biggest mistake Marvel made was retconning only the marriage instead of the entire relationship. It was having their cake and eating it too. If they want a single Spider-man, they should've gone all out and either divorced them and write dramatic stories about Peter being a divorcee, or just completely start over with them. Either one of those choices wouldn't be ideal, but still preferable to this magical wishy-washy shit.

Jury's still out on that first one - it could have been something she just said to reassure Whatsisface, or what actually happened. *Shrug*

Slott wasn't given the best deal, yes, but there are a ton of writers who could have made better creative choices and not deliberately baited the fans, nor go online to troll the hell out of them. Same with Steve Wacker. The degree of unprofessionalism in the Marvel publishing house at the mo is, well, shocking.

I don't think they're a former couple the relationship stress is a friendship/partnership stressed by the fact Clark's basically accused Lois of selling out.
