    I know - what the hell do people expect? Each issue represents a ten year leap forward. It can't cover everything that happened in that decade.

    I actually enjoyed this a lot more than the first issue - which I thought was pretty terrific itself. I loved that it really took some wild, unexpected turns but yet still was bouncing off both established continuity and What If? elements.

    This took things in a new direction. Excellent stuff.

    spoilers:
    We had the Death of Gwen Stacy, with Harry Osborn responsible, but it was a moment of madness, where he didn't realize what he was doing. And it ended with a new take on the ending of ASM 122.

    You know, I'm hoping this is a hit just so we can get more follow-ups. It could work.

    So in light of the ending, and the fact that Peter will probably still end up with MJ here, do you think Mayday could be born next issue or the fourth issue?

    The way Zdarsky has been mixing and matching different continuity elements, I'd bet on sooner for her.

    Especially since spoilers:
    MJ is roughly the same age as Peter. She was in the 1966 sequence, so it makes more sense for her to have kids in her thirties than in her forties.

    Que sabe? I trust Zdarsky. He can do what he wants. Death, divorce, and so on. He knows what he's doing and where he's going and the story he has here can stand on its own you know.

    True. Though thinking more on it, I suppose it'd make the most sense for Mayday to be born between issue's 3 and 4.

    He's in his twenties in issue 2 I believe. He'd be in his early-mid thirties in issue #3 and I believe he would be in his early to mid forties in #4.

    spoilers:
    Well, the description for the fourth issue mentions Peter having a family, so I assume that means Peter will have kids. Now will that kid be Mayday? Who knows. Zdarsky could decide to give Peter and MJ a son for all we know. But since Mayday was born in the 90s, I'd assume he'd just use her.

    He won't be in the 1990s.

    Not sure why we need to put his age in a spoiler tag. But yes, dialogue in issue 2 confirms Pete is 30 at the time.

    Just caught up and read through issues 1 and 2. Overall, I really enjoyed both. However, there were a few things that bugged me about the clone thing.



    spoilers:
    Like at what point was the real Gwen Stacy abducted? Did peter marry a clone? It seems like the Gwen clone (Helen) and Peter were together for some time given the difference in hairstyle.

    I get that the clones would want to forge their own identity, but I imagine that Helen would have developed her own memories/feelings/attachment to Peter. I know there's not a whole lot of room to explore this kind of thing, but her leaving with Ben all smiles just felt so abrupt. (even though they did indicate that some time had passed)

    I did like the homage to the ASM #122 epilogue though.
