Peter Parker, Polygamist?

Hold on a second, your favorite wife? Your FAVORITE wife? When did you become a polygamist, Mister Parker? Furthermore, who are your other wives? I mean, we had Dara Dorset claiming to be your wife a while ago, but she admitted she was lying. Unless you've got Gwen Stacy in a closet somewhere, I'd suggest using a different term of endearment.

Ah, and you're a fool: beware the ellipses of Lopez!

TIL: That odd painting behind the television.

Did anyone else notice the hand in the second panel which is reaching out from behind the sofa?

I did notice that, as well as the odd angle of Mary Jane's head. I just did not feel like dealing with these mysteries.

I think it may have something to do with the Addams Family, though.

If that first panel is punctuated correctly, then Peter's favorite wife is actually "Popcorn," not Mary Jane.

The concept that Peter keeps the the rotting corpse of Gwen Stacy tucked away in a closet somewhere for those nights when MJ is out acting oddly interests me.

Tomorrow's strip:

Peter: I love you, popcorn. No one understands me like you do.

*UNZIP*

MJ: Peter, NO! Not again!

He could just be a serial monogamist, and MJ's his fifth wife, and the only one to last more than three months. I mean, we all know that he's not, but, you know, if we'd never heard of Spidey before then it's plausible.

I feel kinda dirty for having defended him, even in my little imaginarily-possible situation.

Ah, there's nothing finer than leaving crime fighting behind so you can laze about on the couch, eat popcorn, and enjoy the ever popular... Maria Lopez talk show... Peter, here's a thought for you... Ever heard of MOVIES???

Tommy said...

Hehehe, yeah. Either Pete should have said favorite gal, at which point Aunt May would break the door down and transform into Golden Oldie...Or Mary Jane shoulda' said 'I'm your only wife'.

I love how he admits that sitting in front of the television tops webslinging and fighting badguys in THIS comic.

And I can't think of a single other woman on earth who would want to marry Peter Parker, even if he is spiderman. My womanly fantasy involving Peter Parker is me kicking him hard in the nuts and laughing as he collapses to the floor saying "Unnnghhh..."
