    Busiek is good but I think Bendis will know just how to hit the right emotional notes for a story like that.

    Wait has it been established that Peter remembers his marriage? Cause if he does that's a shame since I know Bendis would make the scene with him remembering everything so epic.

    Has anyone figured out how long the "VS" sister series is? 6 or 12 issues?

    Good, less money to spend.

    I'm still anxious about books like Cap, Thor, IIM, and Hulk tieing in though. Guess we'll find out when the April 2012 solicits come out.

    Colossusnaught is much stronger than Ben, I think, but Ben has heart.

    The ever-lovin' blue eyed Thing, idol o' millions, aunt petunia's favourite boy, don't give up to no pansy commie in a funny hat.

    Spider-Woman and Gambit is a good set-up.

    Also I support Tex as regards to Spider-Man. He doesn't like the post-OMD direction (which is still there), so he is voting with his wallet to let Marvel know that. He's missing out on some good comics, and aware of that, but there's nothing wrong with making a stand as a consumer.

    Man, I tried to read post-OMD Spider-Man, and I just couldn't. It literally made me queasy to see Peter and Mary Jane fucking other people. It was like watching two old friends go through a break-up.

    And then one old friend dates a violent movie star with a goatee, and the other has sex with a vigilante while telling her not to look at his face.

    It made me so deeply uncomfortable, that I just didn't want to read it anymore. It's incredibly rare that a comic actually causes feelings of physical revulsion in me, but there you go. I think Identity Crisis and Countdown to Infinite Crisis are the only other two to actually manage it.

    That said, I'll still read the stuff that doesn't have all the relationship drama stuff, like Avenging Spider-Man. And I'm reading the Daredevil cross-over, just because it's Waid and Rios, and also doesn't have a huge focus on the relationship stuff.

    Peter Parker and MJ should be married, really. They just should. It happened and it was great and moved forward the characters and the situation and some people (looking at you Quesada) need to get over that. You are right, it does feel weird to see either of them with other people, as well as feeling kind of miserable as well. They were together and now they are not and that is sad. And let's be honest, Carly is no MJ.

    But I am reasonably confident that one day it will be back. And when it comes back, I will cheer to the heavens.

    Well uh one of the inciting events for Peter's status in the DD crossover is his breakup with Carlie, so...

    My wishlist for Spider-Man

    a) Gets back together with MJ
    b) Punches Mephisto in the face
    c) Marriage is restored like it should be

    I would bet (neither one is going to happen either way though), but if MJ and Peter were going to be married again it would be for the "first time", not "restoring"

    This thing is making me realize I probably need to stuff the bf in a spider-suit and go to a con as MJ one of these days.

    Then make out front row in front of Quesada.

    Do iiiiiit.

    Then when he nervously asks you to stop scream "HOMEWRECKER!" at him and then pelt him with various bits of Spider-Man merchandise.

    Is this wishful thinking or are there rumors of Bendis writing 616 Spidey?

    Having him write both Ultimate and 616 would be weird, but I'm curious what an adult Peter would be like under Bendis.

    EDIT: Also, I'm glad I had stopped reading Spidey before OMD. Big Time brought me back and I really been loving it since then. I don't miss the marriage (as stupid idea as it was to undo it) but won't mind if they ever bring it back. I do like Carlie though.

    Just wishfull thinking on my part but it's possible he could write ASM later this year or early next. Hell right now he's only writing Avengers, New Avengers, Brilliant, Powers, Moon Knight, and Ultimate Spider-man, he can handle another title.

    Actually I think Bendis would be perfect on Avenging Spider-man.

    Pretty stupid for a two-part story honestly, how long the delay was between the parts.

    They were both set pre Fear Itself, as well.

    I wonder if Bendis will even come back to it before his run ends. Unless the Revengers show up to side with the X-Men and deal a blow to the Avengers something fierce, then I can't even see it ever getting resolved.

    That seems like it might happen, actually

    and then Wolverine's people turn up on the Avengers side and we get a ROYAL RUMBLE!

    I'm really curious about the Ultron thing now. Assuming it's Bendis last hurrah as an Avengers writer it won't be talking place till at least September, most likely October so I guess it will take place in both Avengers and New Avengers which does make sense.

    I swear if Hitch isn't done drawing it by then...
