    But what if it remains ( which I suspect), Peter keeps getting kicked around like a dog, and a new writer appears? I say no more waiting, wishing and hoping.

    I hate it because my favorite story arcs had Pete and MJ as a couple. To me getting rid of that is... well.. ruining the fictional setting.

    The problem is that Peter's life is pretty much summed up in his prayer in ASM v4 #35
    Hello, God... This is Peter Parker. Can I ask a favor? I know I've been your personal cat toy for the last few years...but can we not do that to me again for a while? Not real long, I know the odds on that are about zero...but just for a little while. Say...fifty or sixty years? I mean, that's not long in your terms, right? Just kidding, God... Just kidding. But I'll bet you knew that, didn't you?

    He lost battles before, but nothing like we have seen with Slott and now Spencer.

    hmm.. why wasn't the Siege Perilous used instead of having Mephisto warp reality? seems like a less demonic-consequences way to give yourself another life.

    I am very aware of his losses ( see ASM 121 as an example), but over the past 13 years it is on average been relentless.

    Kindred dug up much more than Gwen Stacy's body. He's been tossed around by Morlun, Juggernaut, some random kid with superpowers. He's never really had a winning streak.

    Peter never wins all the time. Even when he wins, he often loses in some other fashion. But PCN24454 is right, Peter has never had a substantial winning streak. It is intrinsic for his character that he doesn't. Peter is the underdog and each battle that he loses further showcases his resolve. He keeps at it until he does win and that victory is all the more sweeter for it.

    But I've said before, I think Marvel regret how they handled the story, not the actual idea itself.
    They would mostly likely want to say "Yeah, we're with you guys" without actually reversing it.
    I want to point out, it's considered poor taste to undo something so big, especially from an editor in chief. Especially considering Quesada is still at Marvel. They probably don't want to burn bridges with him.
    Shooter they can as he was fired and he did the marriage, but Quesada still has an office at Marvel.

    Maybe one day, maybe in 10 or 20 years, if it's still an issue, One More Day will get undone. But for now, it's effectively admitting it made a mistake and would rather move forward.
    It won't get reversed. It will just be addressed and overcome in some fashion. The issue with Peter's soul will be fixed, Peter will be free from further reprisals (Mephisto can't do anything directly TO Peter, but he can to those who are close to him) and it will allow Peter to remarry MJ in the future (if Marvel so wishes to redo it).

    But OMD happened and it won't be wiped away. As you said, Marvel (at the time) liked the idea, just not the execution.
