Ever since "One More Day," it seems like Marvel has done everything they can to diminish Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson as a couple, and not just in ret-conning their previous marital status and giving Peter various other love interests to pursue. But then along comes the finale to "Spider-Island" to suddenly remind us why fans loved these two as a couple in the first place.

First of all, we get an explanation as to why MJ seemed to be the last one in New York to develop Spider-powers:

So...yeah. Peter's fear that he may have given Carlie a "Spidey Transmitted Disease" as a result of "sharing a toothbrush" (among other things) back in Amazing Spider-Man #667? Turns out it he had the right idea, albeit a different girl with different results.

Anyway, Spidey and his clone Kaine team-up against The Queen (who now has transformed into a giant 28-story half-woman, half-spider creature) only for the Queen to swat Spidey away like...well, a bug. And who comes in for the save?

Spidey's plan? To use Doc Ock's miniature octo-bots (the one's from Amazing Spider-Man #600) to administer the Anti-Venom cure to all those infected with the "Spider-Island virus." So he and MJ go up to the Empire State Building to better broadcast the signal, leading to this moment:

Due to everyone being cured, the Queen is weakened, allowing Kaine to deliver the killing blow. The day is saved, and what do Peter and MJ do the celebrate? They snuggle!

And if that weren't enough, Peter seems to have completely forgotten all about Carlie Cooper. You know, the woman who is supposed to be his actual girlfriend? :-P

Okay, maybe this doesn't necessarily mean Peter and MJ will get back together again right away, but it sure seems things are moving in that direction, do they not?

YESSSSSSS!!! But it does make me wonder how Slott will handle the break up of Carlie if she is still alive. Even for her current representation I don't wish the fate MJ had to be put on her...

i really hope this does mean they will get back together... i hope this does NOT mean they are going to try and pawn her off on Kaine....

I know she will probably lose the powers... but i REALLY want her to keep them... and i REALLY want her to be the new Scarlet Spider, and keep it from Peter.... she really did kick ass as a Hero and it feels like SUCH a tease if they take that from her...

Yeah, Pete and MJ are snuggling up on top of some building while Carlie is stuck naked and embarrassed in Central Park.

Who's the love interest now?

Carlie and Pete are done very soon, as Felecia becomes his love interest.

But I think be keeping secrets from Carlie and "holding her back" when she had spidey-powers Carlie will dump Pete.

And then the universe begins to right itself....

If you're going to force Carlie as the perfect ultimate girlfriend, be consistent at the very least. Went from center of the universe to being completely ignored rather quickly.

It does seem like Carlie has disappeared from Pete's life pretty quickly. I guess once the backlash on the character started building they had to do something.

I like how everyone is more confused by what stayed or went while they were giant spiders, than by being giant spiders in the first place, and they're just examining who lost what rather than freaking out over waking up naked in strange places. "So we were giant spiders. Huh. I lost my rockin' beard, but Misty kept her headband! That's not fair!"

Kind of surprised if that's the case, given that the response to any backlash since OMD has been a big "fuck you" and an extra helping of salt on the wound.

I dunno. Marvel's been very "we're doing what WE want with Spidey!' so I don't see how they can get them back together.

There's a reason people are so unhappy with Carlie. Well, there are a lot of reasons, but one of them is that Pete and MJ are a nigh-perfect couple that Marvel broke up for shock value. Very few relationships can match theirs when they're written well.

Yeah, this isn't the first time they've put out the carrot on a stick.

... she developed an immunity from the spider-virus because of her years with Peter?

Haven't the numbers for Spidey been going down steadily? Maybe it's reached the "it's a dog" point and they just have to do something.

There was a moment where some random guy questioned why he still had his glasses, wondering if he'd somehow been a spider with glasses on! LOL!

I guess that's what writers call, 'hanging a lampshade on it..'
