Peter: I just got off the phone with Stan Lee. Apparently Marvel wants this strip to mesh with the comic books, and it turns out the Vulture won't be the next villain, after all. Instead, we have to make a deal with the devil and retcon our marriage out of existence. They also mentioned something about Aunt May not dying, but I didn't even know she was sick. Oh, and my secret identity is safe from the, oh, five people who know it in this strip.
Peter: I hate Joe Quesada.
On another note which will be of interest to everybody and not just people who are aware of the Spider-Man comic book's current status quo, the usefulness of Spider-Man's secret identity in this strip had become nonexistent. Let's look at the facts:
-Spider-Man has a secret identity to protect his loved ones (Mary Jane)
-Mary Jane and Spider-Man are now publicly known to be pals, and maybe a bit more.
-Villains who want to attack Spider-Man, but were unaware of how to get at him seeing as how they did not know his secret identity, will now attack Mary Jane to get at Spider-Man.
The Parkers really screwed the pooch on this one.
