In a story ripped from the headlines Marvel Comics have done away with the 21 year marriage of Peter Parker, better known as Spider-Man, and Mary Jane Watson in it’s latest issue. This has caused a bit of an uproar among comic fans since the issue has the marriage being wiped from their memory like it never existed.
In Amazing Spider-Man #545 last week, Peter and Mary Jane make a tearful deal with the devil-like character Mephisto: In exchange for saving Aunt May’s life, Mephisto erases all traces of the Peter-Mary Jane marriage from memory.
For you non-comic fans to relate to this news it’s like finding out that “Sex and the City” was all a big dream of a 13 year old boy. I know that would be silly to make an entire show based on a dream…where are those St.Elsewhere writers anyway? No comic stored have been torced yet, but I can seem them reversing this just like when they killed Superman a few years back.
