At least they didn’t use Mephisto this time…

by

Apparently the effects of “One More Day” are no longer exclusive to Spider-Man’s comic books. On December 31st, the Spider-Man newspaper strip returned Peter to his single, college days of living with Aunt May. It looks like instead of creating a story to do away with the marriage, the strip decided to do a clean reboot. See for yourself:

… yeah, I’m of two minds about this. Do I think a married Peter Parker can work? Yeah. Did I think “One More Day” was a good idea? No. Still, Spider-Man’s newspaper strip is even more soap operatic in nature than his comic, so a single Peter Parker could work in its favor. We’ll see how things work out…

UPDATE: turns out it’s not a reboot at all, but a flashback! Read all about it here:

    a) Who reads the Spider-Man newspaper strip?

    b) That’s fucked up, and makes me mad

    c) Bringing home women with Aunt May around must be awkward (or really fun, as “Trouble” would have us believe)

    a) I do! Sometimes

    b) Understandable, and I half-agree

    c) YES

    Btw, updated post to include link to the strip where it happened

    Might it be a Photoshop job? Or has someone confirmed it’s real?

    My paper gets the Amazing Spider-Man comic strip so I could check, but I’m pretty sure it’s not a Photoshop job. HOWEVER, I’ve updated my initial post again with some new information: turns out it’s not a reboot at all. It’s a flashback!

    “In the days before Peter and MJ were married…”

    I also kind of like the meta-commentary on the last panel. “It’s great to know that some things NEVER change!”
