    Sadly, I think this is the premise of Age of X-Man, or I'd tell Marvel to publish this right away

Annie doesn't really fit the profile* (so far) of a big player in a soon-to-happen Marvel event (and we've elsewhere decided we think a Mephisto one is on the horizon). She's, what, the 3rd or 4th most high profile Spider-woman/girl?
    I'd say 6th, behind Jessica Drew, Spider-Gwen, Mayday, Silk, and Anya Corazon.

    I agree with you Annie is nowhere near the top of the list. I'd put Gwen at the top though not Jessica, but that's just me.

    And yet even an Infant like Benjy ranks above them as he is the scion.

    True, but I at least (I'm not sure about the other posters) was referencing popularity, not in story relevancy.

    I was also referencing popularity (and/or likelihood Marvel would want to promote one of them up to being one of the focuses of an event). I had Gwen and Jessica in a tier by themselves - both have reasonable top dog resumes (although Jessica's has a lot of older stuff on it and less new stuff). It's probably like the various Green Lanterns - depends on who the writer du jour favors.

    OMD is a pretty dumb story, but they did a few nice inadvertent pieces of storytelling that make it kind of interesting- one of them is that by not defining what Mephisto's plan was, and having the story not make a lick of sense in the broader 616 (not only is Mephisto not a Spider-man nemesis, so there was no history there, but he's also not a marriage license collector), there's a blank canvas that doesn't need a retcon when someone comes up with their own "Here's the real reason he needed their true love" story. Christos Gage can pitch the Annie thing right now and it'd work. Donny Cates can pitch a sequel to Damnation in which the power of the marriage is used to retake the throne. My moronic soul magnet idea is consistent w/the facts in evidence. It's all possible w/o having to "certain point of view" a damn thing.

    And he was a good friend.
