    But I digress
    The Fantastic Four are probably more celebrated in NYC than Spider-Man. I think the popularity of the character with readers is confusing his importance in the MU.

    Unless Peter Parker was their as an photographer then no, Spider-Man is only an urban super hero and offers nothing to the X-Men in what they are trying to achieve.
    So what, prey tell does Conan O'Brian offer to the X-Men in what they are trying to achieve?

    Seriously ?, he is a tv personality viewed by many people. It is all about exposure to a worldwide audience.
    I enjoy anything Marvel cosmic, especially Thanos or Dark Phoenix related, loved the original Uncanny Avengers series.

    They invited at least FOUR of them.

    Is Spider-Man currently popular with the public or is he in another of his Jameson engineered infamy periods?

    And since most of these invites were likely sent out by Emma, she probably remembers his never ending comments about her outfits from a previous encounter. Maybe she left him off the invite list on purpose.

    Fenris was invited to the gala (and are part of the Hellfire guys gathered by Emma before the toast in Marauder). They are not however apparently invited to X-Corp’s wine and dine at the same time

    Wasn’t Jameson one of the most prominent pro-mutant media figures back in the day?

    Jameson and Spiderman have a very different relationship these days.

    His TBS show ends in a week or two. And there are other TV personalities with a larger audience. Honestly, it's weird that they invited a bunch of goofy comedians but not someone who has saved their collective butts several times in the past. I can't really see Patton Oswalt's snarky tweets doing a whole hell of a lot for the mutant community.

    It is weird that Marvel decided to jam a bunch of real world celebs in the book, yes, but the criteria for that has nothing to do with any story reason for Spider-Man being there or not. Is Spider-Man even the biggest snub?

    A worldwide audience for an event that's being psychically projected to everybody anyways?

    We're living in a world where supermodels like Gigi and Bella Hadid can influence the youth on social media to take a major geopolitical stance like backing Palestine against Israel's attacks. Emma couldn't have invited Mary Jane to the Gala and asked her to put up some pro-mutant/pro-Krakoa Instagram posts and tweets for her followers? Peter could have been MJ's plus one- boyfriend, photographer and live tweeter.

    I don´t think the X-men know Spider-man secret identity so he wasn´t personally invited but imo if he was part of the current Avengers team he most probably would have gone as well.

    I like the idea of MJ posting pro-krakoa images on her twitter and for her to be at the Gala with Peter as her plus one but I don´t think the X-office considered this, could have been a good idea imo.
