    I don't know how much more Rich knows than he insinuates in the article, but revisiting OMD has a number of possible meanings, some of which are more momentous than others. Just to spitball with a few:

    1. Peter proposes again (third time's the charm!) and MJ turns him down (setting up her new miniseries, much like Catwoman getting her own series after baling on Bats). Perhaps we'll see a little red bird take a dump on her shirt while she's deciding and that's the sign that tells her to say no.

    2. Peter and MJ start discussing marriage and they keep getting distracted by a plague of red locusts. Peter thinks the whole thing is odd, and that starts his journey to asking questions of mystical people about the incident, thus leading him to discover the deal

    3. Peter proposes, MJ tells him why she has to say no (the deal from OMD, since she may or may not remember it), Peter is gobsmacked

    4. Aunt May's cancer gets addressed, and she becomes miraculously cured, leading Peter to be suspicious of her newfound immortality

    Could be possible, doesn't mean a reversal, though. Just addressing the storyline, in a sense.

    I don't know what you mean here. But regardless of OMD-OMIT, Mary Jane did say yes to Peter the second time he proposed. Remember Peter stood her up at the altar. She made it, not him. So there's no "third time's the charm here".

    Do you consider a proposal successful if the marriage doesn't happen? I'd lean towards no - the purpose of the proposal is to secure a hand in marriage, I'd think, but it's an entirely personal opinion.

    Yes. Especially since that's not the reason why the marriage didn't happen. The marriage didn't happen in OMIT because Mephisto interfered and pulled the strings. It wasn't grounded in the character's choices and actions. Mephisto warped the world so that a brick thrown by a shlub transformed into an Olympic discuss thrower cancelled out Peter's strength. In the words of Killer Croc, "I threw a rock at him...it was a big rock."

    More broadly, I have issue with this stuff about proposal as if it was MJ's fault that the marriage didn't happen in OMIT, and trying to make it like MJ is the one turning down Peter's proposals. The fact is she did say yes and did go ahead with the marriage and absolutely would have gone ahead if not for Mephisto. She did show up at the wedding and got humiliated in the process for being stood up.

    I stopped collecting Spider-Man shorty after Slott took over. I never really enjoyed his run with one of the main reasons being the lack of Peter and MJ together. This mindset that Marvel and Joe Quesada adopted where a married Spider-Man somehow limited him was always puzzling to me. Then you throw in OMD which is probably the worst written story and concept that I’ve ever come across on top of that. Got back into the world of Spider-Man a few months ago and I’m loving what Spencer is doing with the character. He seems to be a big fan of the Peter/MJ relationship which is a big win for me.

    However I’m not really sure I want this OMD story revisited. Just let it die already and never reopen that disgusting can of worms. If somehow this is true and it turns into Peter/MJ remembering everything and so on then I could possibly be ok with that. I just can’t see Marvel ever undoing it though and reinstating The marriage though....

    I guess one can hope ....

    Because it's more like hit and hit and hit and hit and hit and hit and hit and hit and hit and miss and hit and hit and hit and hit... but no, I'm not writing clickbait. You get what's promised, no baiting going on...

    I guess we’ll find out in September.
    Yes, I can't do more than that for what I hope are obvious reasons. Just wanted to put my money where my mouth was. Maybe when #29 is out you'll have fewer doubts the following time...

    I think Rich is right on this one. It’s painfully obvious to anyone paying attention that Kindred is the fragment of Peter’s soul that Mephisto said would scream in agony for all eternity with memory of what happened.

    Anybody acting like Rich / Bleeding Cool doesn't have a very solid track record is fooling themselves.

    Our main character, a socially awkward outcast, gains newfound confidence and arrogance before committing a string of horrid acts. He then wears a fancy suit and proceeds to dance like a maniac to music that isn't actually there playing around him.

    Ok, so it looks like the article wasn't based on nothing after all, but I still think it's a stretch to say that this plot development is a reivist to the One More Day storyline. At this point it could still be completely not revisited at all but this certainly does make it seem it will be touched on some time in the future.

    Love it when Rich does his best Bloody Mary impression.
    Get out of my bathroom mirror, you scamp!

    Also, is there an actual citation to the "overall fall of Spider-Man readers"?
