Amazing Spider-Man 639

Posted by bps 05 August 2010

After reading this issue, I am filled with mixed feelings. Unfortunately, the issue leaves us hanging wondering what could possibly have happened to cause the Peter and MJ to break up, according to this new reality. 

The story
The issue starts with MJ and Peter still chatting about their pasts. Peter, tries to change the topic, but MJ insists. Peter recalls how he, as Spider-Man went to the wedding scene, unable to find MJ. From above he was able to overhear all the conversations amongst the guests, badmouthing Peter for not appearing at the wedding. 

As Spider-Man, he swings around the city searching high and low for MJ but is unable to find her. He finally goes back to his place and finds her waiting there. After much loud discussion, MJ storms out the apartments statins that she never wants to see Peter again. 

MJ then tells her part of the story where she had a conversation with her Aunt Anna that ultimately convinced her to go back to Peter. She returns to Peter a couple of days later and explains to her that she only wanted to marry him so she could have kids with him. 

Essentially she tells him that she can't and wont have kids with him due to his dangerous lifestyle. As such, there is no need to marry him. The two decide that cohabitation is the best answer. -.-

The story fast forwards to issues we were familiar with before BND. Everything happened exactly as it did. Peter, MJ and Aunt May moved into the Avengers tower. Peter unmasked himself. Aunt May was shot, and died. Except that Peter somehow managed to revive her doing CPR when the doctors could not. 

I was pretty much satisfied with this issue. I don't exactly see eye to eye with the reason given to cohabit-ate. Nonetheless, just keep in mind that this is not how it actually happened.  I was a little upset that the events before OMD happened exactly as it did. Reason for this however was primarily because it scarred my image of MJ. Personally, I can't look at MJ the same as I did when I read that scene Pre-OMD. Overall, still pretty good. Looking forward to the next.
