Its a simple question really. 4 recent, horrific Spidey arcs, all with terrible things happening to the character love(d). Let's recap on the arcs (Spoilers for all arcs): Sins Past: This arc ruined Gwen's memory, saying she slept with Norman Osborne and had 2 children, that were destined to become new goblins. Only one did, the Grey Goblin, and he was a mediocre waste of time that will probably never be seen again. (Unless the guy on the cover to one of the upcoming issues of Brand New Day is him). The Other: A tale promised to be one of the best Spider-man stories of all time (yet again), turned into a complete disaster, ruining Spider-man's origin even further than the totem pole crap, and turning him into a weird man-spider thing, eating the head of Morlun before dieing. It butchered the character with the crappy new power of bone claws, and left little light in Spidey fan's hearts. The War At Home: Featurning an unpopular new suit that turned Spider-man into a flying Doctor Octopus, this infamous arc destroyed Peter's secret identity, revealing himself to the world. Arguably the worst thing writers have ever done to Spider-man, especially considering the reasoning of being proud of yourself. Peter magicaly forgot why he didn't reveal his identity, something he'd rehearsed every 5 issues or so. As a result, everything he had feared (and forgotten) become true. One More Day: The latest monstrocity sees Peter and Mary Jane agreeing to surrender their marrage for the life of Aunt May. Several positive things came as a result. Web-shooters return, as does Peter's secret identity. The down side is the loss of a character most fans have come to consider a core part of Spider-man, and the obliteration of around 20 years worth of Spider-man comics. So there are your choices, what do you choose, what do you choose?
