    We've gotten an indicator...Spencer says he'll be getting to MJ as his run goes on, but there are new love interests to consider first

    So pretty much "just friends"

    If there were any MJs that were left unscathed over the decade, they would undoubtedly be the alternate reality versions (MC2 MJ, Newspaper MJ, Ultimate MJ, and RYV MJ), all of whom remained on-point and true to her character.
    Second. I can't think of a fictional character who has not only been damaged but has also had his supporting cast ruined as badly as Slott did to Spider Man. Spencer would need to pull a Geoff Johns Green Lantern for me to start picking this book up again.

    They need to do a total OMD reversal to get me, so I think it's safe to say I'll never be reading it.

    Hate to break it to you all if no one has said it already but if anyone was hoping for the end of OMD well kill that hope and bury it deep because it will still stand under the new writer.
    Had a reliable source tell me this that Marvel has no intention of bringing them back together, if they remain friends at all i am still waiting for confirmation but as it is we aren't getting the two together as they should be.

    I figured OMD wouldn't get reversed, even though Slott lies a lot, he's wasted tons of time explaining to us that there are people way above his pay grade at Marvel/Disney who don't want the marriage back for some reason. Though last time I defended Slott saying stuff on here was when I thought he wouldn't leave ASM, so it's hard to take what this guy says seriously.

    Has your source said anything about Renew Your Vows and whether or not that's going to stick around? Marvel may not have any intention of putting them back together, but with that book existing, they pretty much don't have to (same with allowing the daily strip to be published)

    Not saying that it was plausible, but we're not going anywhere, so the neither is the problem.

    I think it's definitely part of the deal with writing Spider-Man is that you can't bring Peter and MJ back together.

    Even when you look at the big scope of things, it's been 10 years since OMD, and only recently they've done references to OMD at best. MJs' role in Spider-Man media has dropped down.

    It just makes sense that there are restrictions on what a writer can do in Spider-Man, and Peter and MJ being together is one of them.

    They should be writen as being sound friends of each other,i am in no rush to see Peter and MJ back in a relationship again.
    I think that Status Quo had more that enough stories,in my opinion i would like much more to see Peter Parker with a new romantic interest.

    They need to restore the main supporting cast, including MJ. She should be written intelligently, as pre-slott. Lois Lane isn't Booster Gold's girlfriend anymore than MJ should be in Iron Man. Shoehorning people out of the book into another is a damaging mandate to the book imo. Sure i would love some closure to the heavy elephant around the books neck of OMD and the ongoing devil deal direction. However, i can deal with MJ and Peter just have closure over Mephisto and not being remarried, although i prefer that.

    I hope so. But - looking on this cover, I have dark feelings:

    This is final "gift" from Slott (deadly)?

    I doubt that's the case. Marvel have no problem marketing Peter and MJ-centric variant covers, including her as a major and even playable character in an upcoming video game, and currently publishing two ongoing comic continuities where they are married

    Like I've said plenty of times, Marvel presently treat 616 Peter and MJ like Ross and Rachel, a couple you know are endgame, but always have ups-and-downs and roadblocks thrown their way from now until the series becomes unprofitable (which, frankly, it's starting to)

    We should make more mention of the PS4 game, because it's the start of Marvel's new video game strategy, and probably going to become second only to the MCU in terms of Marvel's promotions of their characters. Comics are once again being left behind.
