When Charles Soule started his Daredevil run DD's secret identity was back in the closet, with only Foggy Nelson knowing who he really was. Today's issue revealed what caused the new status quo.

Daredevil visits his girlfriend Kirsten, from Mark Waid's run, but she doesn't know he's really Matt anymore.

Maybe this was explained elsewhere, but I think there's a little discrepancy with how the mindwipe thing was supposed to work. Before it was shown that Elektra remembers being with both Matt and Daredevil, she just thinks they were two different people and that she was cheating on Matt. Here Kirsten only remembers being with Matt.

Daredevil visits Foggy, who doesn't remember who he is either until he unmasks.

Daredevil goes back to the Purple Man's machine, only to find it destroyed. He fights some crime and sees that nobody else knows who he really is anymore either.

Matt breaks up with her.

How about Superman reversing time by making the Earth spin backwards? :D

I guess I don't find either of those as awful, because they're completely ridiculous. The writers just phoned in an explanation, and we're supposed to suspend our disbelief. Fine, whatever.

OMD suffers from being a drawn out, "serious" explanation that's gawd-awful. Would have been better if Peter was suddenly single in the next issue, with no explanation ever.

Apparently he was just flying faster than light and the earth spinning backwards was just to show that he was traveling backwards in time.

Of course, wouldn't there have been 2 Supermans if he did that?

Then why does he need to reverse the reversed spin? If Superman were just going faster than light, the earth would resume its normal motion (relative to him) as soon as he slowed down.

It was to avoid the two supermen problem. BAsically the spinning Earth was supposed to represent him traveling back in time changing Lois' fate and then traveling back to the point he traveled back from.

It really was a fail on the part of the folks involved not to use something else for the effect. IT is a pretty clear example of something that is easily explained on a comic panel being very hard to do in live action.

That's always how I interpreted it, since the first time I saw it. I was surprised when I learned others took it more literally.

But if he can travel that fast in the first place, why wouldn't he have been able to catch both missiles?

Honestly I still say if Marvel had to use deal with the devil to undo the marriage they should have had Norman make the deal. I mean imagine if instead PEter had been tempted but realising how seflish it would be turn around and reject Mephisto.

Mephisto feeling cheated immediately goes to Norman Osborne offers him his son Harry back and as a special bonus the complete destruction of Peter's marriage and Norman being the only one to really know his secret ID anymore.

You then could have had a truly heart wrenching moment where Norman confronts Peter and MJ and tells them what he's done just before the deal takes effect. Same out come but instead of being something horrible that Peter did to himself it was something horrible done to him by a villain.

Oh, I had an idea to "fix" Spider-Man a while ago that involved Pete & MJ realizing that they didn't make a deal with Mephisto, Norman did.

That's brilliant.

And it nicely solves the question of why Mephisto didn't pull his usual shit and save May from the gunshot only to be hit by a bus leaving the hospital.
