    It would be nearly impossible for 616 Peter to have an early 20s kid under "Marvel Time" unless they bring the kid to the 616 timeline like Hope Summers (which I don't think fits Spider-Man).

    This is why I am a big fan of the idea of having an MC2. Not only you can do Mayday that way (in a universe similar to 616's history), but also other legacy characters like Falcon Cap.

    I think the kidnapping of Mayday allows for the writer to bring her in at an established age - three years old? five? - and then sort of leave her there pretty much indefinitely. Because we never see her age, we never have to also see Peter and MJ age.

    They could do the old the two sisters being from an alternate future where it happened and their reality was destroyed but their Peter's dying act was to send them to the 616 verse, just so that they'd be safe, then they run into Peter and MJ and Felicia...hijinks ensue...

    The writer could also base the age of Mayday off of Normie Osborne. Who from what the recent writers say is already 10yo.
    Wouldn't Normie be the same age as Mayday?

    I think the whole thing could even be written as another ploy by Mephisto to inflict pain on Spider-man. Denying Peter the joys of being a father to Mayday.
    It could even be a Dilemma for Peter if he found out. Does he inject his troubled life into Maydays peaceful upbringing?.
    or
    I'm also thinking Mayday becomes a criminal sorta. Mephisto grand plan comes to fruition. Pitting Daughter against Father.

    Bill Mantlo is in no condition to be interviewed owing to his accident so we will never get his side of the story (I don't know if he was interviewed by anyone in the years before his accident damaged his brain functions).

    But Shooter was a friend/mentor/supporter of Mantlo and not the guy to talk smack of him. Shooter defended and kept Mantlo on payroll even after he got caught plagiarizing Harlan Ellison.

    In my opinion the idea of May existing in 616 but hidden could be a good one, eventually being found by her father, I also liked the idea of Mephisto being involved to make Peter suffer taking advantage of the One More Day Deal.

    I voted for original child though, I would honestly love seeing Peter being Spider-Man while having the responsability of a child, but he having his life put together, with a good job and decent place to live.

    An idea of mine is that Sara Bailey was pregnant when she returned to the past and her memories were erased, so stayed away from her once he realized she wouldn't remember him and missed how Sara found out she was pregnant, not remembering the father, she raises him on her own, I think she and Peter a son indtead of a daughter, and eventually the boy develops his powers, and maybe Sara remembering Peter, and eventually takes her son to meet Peter, probaby for a while stays away fearing the risk it would expose to her son if Peter's enemies found out about his child.

    The think I would like the most is that if Sara remembers Peter eventually, she will know the real Peter from the beginning, and has the gift of having spend years with Peter, him being able to be open with her, she knowing him as both Peter and Spider-Man, and having enjoyed a time where Peter didn't had enemies and they had a peaceful live together, so Sara would have known the real Peter from the beginning both with and without mask, aware of his life and tell stories to her son about him, and eventually their child becoming the new Spider-Man.

    Hollywood is not conservative, you almost have to be liberal to get hired there. When it comes to Spider-Man, both Slott and Spencer are quite liberal ( although Spencer keeps politics out of stories).

    Mayday is the one, true Spider-Kid ... so I choose her.

    Annie and the whole RYV story dynamic needs to go away forever and ever.
    Every day is a gift, not a given right.

    That would work the best, they'd get a big house and all would live together, at least until the kids(both girls) would grow up and be off to college...
