Peter goes after Strange, demanding to know how Carlie could have uncovered his identity after his spell.

The thing he has to do is give MJ the antidote, since she still has her spider-powers.

Also, Kaine is now scarless, and from the looks of it I'm guessing he's going to be the new Scarlet Spider. I liked what they did with Kaine when they brought him back (before 'killing' him off), but I'm not too crazy about prettifying him and making him some sort of superhero. And why tease the possibility of bringing Ben back?

And Julia Carpenter, the new Madame Web (I still don't understand why they had to kill off the old one and make her the new one) apologizes to Peter about the loss that's to come.

I'd like to remind you that [community profile] scans_daily is a feminist community. As such, jokes that are about violence towards women or female characters, and jokes about fridging are not welcome here. You are welcome to not like the character, but not to joke or support violence against women or female characters.

My apologies for any offence caused.

Unfortunately, given the scenario, it appeared to be a perfect example to cite of a pop-culutre favourite series with an unpopular, creators-darling, insert-character being clumsily removed when their unpopularity becomes clear. For future reference, would it have been acceptable to use the comparison without the death bit at the end, or should I assume that it will be inferred?

All references aren't perfectly transparent, if it touches on a sensitive subject, be a bit more careful about how obvious you are with the reference, and to express you intent - and especially the target of your intent as if it is meant as a criticism of creators - clearly enough. Also in this case the unpopular character has been subject to a whole lot of bashing, some of it pretty disturbing, in the community, so that's part of why we were more sensitive to it. [personal profile] silverzeo, who made the comment we directly Moded in this case (note: everyone else received an addendum because we wanted people to be aware of the decision as we feel this has been a widespread problem in most ASM post), actually used a reference to a "fridge" in their joke (but since deleted their comment after Moderation (*sighs*)) which is what made us decide it was going too far.

So I'm not sure what I can tell you about using the comparison without the death bit - I guess it works, yes. But I hope that clarifies our intent when we launched all those Mod Notes, and thus how you can avoid this problem in the future?
