Wow, this is great! I haven't read Spiderman in many, many years. I didn't know that Aunt May ever knew that Peter was Spiderman.

And all the other awesomeness.

And the marriage.

And a SHITLOAD of continuity.

From what I gather, 100% of his awesomeness exists in Avengers and Marvel Adventures. The mainstream titles don't even contain trace amounts.

It was revealed fairly early on in JMS' run on ASM that she's known it pretty much since he started, if I remember right.

You might be mixing up the 'death' of Aunt May years back, where she told Peter she had known for years, but denied it.

That might have happened then, but I know I saw during the JMS/JRJr. run a whole issue dedicated to Peter and May talking about it, with her saying that she already knew.

In Amazing Spider-Man 38 where she shows ep holding his costume they have "the talk" she says she knew he'd been hiding something ever since his teenage years from her. She figured he was gay. A sensitive boy, not interested in sports, always playing with girls. She thought he was hiding something in the closet, perhaps a scarf, she just didn't know it was a super hero costume.

Oooooooh. Okay. It's been, like, ages since I read that issue so I guess I got it all mixed up. Seems kinda odd that May would, y'know, let him marry a girl if she thought he was trying to be in the closet, but fair enough.

Ahhh. Then you've got JMS's stuff to get through. It's really great, actually.

Aunt May is channeling her inner Frau Totenkinder here. I love it.

Although there's always this bittersweet feeling whenever I see really awesome stories like this that happened JUST before OMD.

I also know this feeling. Oh, well. At least a few awesome Aunt May stories were written before OMD destroyed everything.

She would have to channeling some kind of wicked magics to knit THAT fast. Unless she has been working on a "Gottcha" sweater for Peter for some time now...

Ha, I was wondering if anyone else noticed. Also it's even more inefficient if you're holding the needles like she is - all the stitches would fall right off.

I could see it if she were crocheting. But then, it's really hard to do designs like that with crochet.

So nicely done that you even gloss over its one error: bitter almonds is a smell/taste associated with cyanide, not arsenic.

Somebody please post the one where May makes Wolverine her Bitch! I am sure when the movie came out, Logan had that event retcon to save his rep. Wonder who would win against her and Deadpool.

This was when he was suped-up. Poison daggers in his arms, organic web shooters, a suit that made him stronger, faster, heightened his senses even more, and even let him glide like some spiders do. Yeah, he was asking for a massive downgrade and to be whipped by JQ.

I really did like the story possibilities opened up by a) not treating May like an idiot, and b) having her know.

I don't read the current book so I'm not criticizing it. I just miss the former possibilities.

Another reason to heartily dislike OMD.

May at her awesomest. Definitely one of the best things to come out of JMS' run was his depiction of May and it was great that other writers kept that quality up.

Aunt May was transformed from a liability that Peter had to work around to a three-dimensional character under JMS. It's possible she was before, but I wasn't following then.

Quite possibly my most favorite May moment was when she found Peter in his costume, asleep and wiped out from a battle. She may have suspected, but now it was totally confirmed. She then spent the entire issue dealing with her feelings about it, featuring the famous scene in the library where she hones in on JJJ's anti-Spidey bias.

angelophile: (I concur)
From: [personal profile] angelophile
Yes, yes, yes.

There's much to criticize about JMS's run, especially the contrived editorially mandated stuff, but when he was on form there was just some wonderful stuff. Moving May into position as an ally rather than a hindrance was definitely the latter.

There will be no porn viewing while May Parker is on the job THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

Also: May likes Lattes, apparently.

I wonder if that particular version of the Spidey outfit even exists anymore after OMD? Not that I would grieve particularly if it didn't, but it would be interesting if Spidey kept it around for when he needed that extra edge.

Nah, it belongs to the Scarlet Spider(s) now - the suit belonged to Tony Stark, so he gave it to the Michael Van Patrick clones in Avengers: The Initiative.

Ah, OK. This is what comes of not keeping up with things.
