    They went to a Civil War, dressed Back in Black and fell deep into the abyss of Hell is what happened.

    It's a dumb story, which happens to a lot of characters. I can't even think of how many times a character I love has gone crazy or had some stupid, OOC storyline (even Tony Stark became a murderous sleeper agent for Kang, died and was replaced by a younger version of himself from a divergent timeline and Captain America was the leader of Hydra a few years ago). It's comics. Ben will likely bounce back. But he isn't a big enough character that I'm confident he'll come back if they kill him off again.
    True enough, for better or worse.

    Yeah, you're right. Civil War/Back in Black was where things really started going wrong, then One More Day was the punctuation mark on that wrong, and aside from some glimmers of hope here and there . . .

    Yet those glimmers were always fleeting, the best we got was Spencer's run and Quesada clearly decided to directly interfere at what would have been a major step in unraveling his precious One More Day, you know...to make sure he pissed everyone off one last time before he was replaced.

    Oh yeah, it's not brought up much, but OMD was a device to put the public identity back in the bottle as much as it was a divorce story.

    Anyone remember if Marvel's on record on this? Was the Civil War reveal done with OMD following it in mind, or without a determined way to bring the genie back into the bottle?

    Tom Breevort had this to say in the interviews featured in the Civil War Script Book, which I have on me right now: "...the Registration Act didn't require Spidey to unmask publicly. However, as Tony said over in Amazing, as he's going to be the face of the Registation Act before the public, he and his need to be above reproach. This is why Tony himself came clean against in Front Line #1, and why Pete felt the need to do so in Civil War #2. If he hadn't, he couldn't have functioned as Tony's right-hand man, which is what he promised he'd do." The book also follows up about a writers retreat where they discussed which title the reveal should happen in, so in regard to the reveal it was planned as for One More Day...given how sloppily it was written, I think it was a last minute decision on how to go about putting the genie back in the bottle. I haven't heard anything to the contrary other than Quesada's ever-changing answers.

    I think there's a pretty good chance of that. It doesn't seem to be well-received in the first place, so I doubt it'll stick, especially with ATSV on the horizon.

    Cheers! I was just glad I happen to have the script book laying around at that exact moment.
