      Wrong. Spider-Man never recovered from the Clone Saga. One More Day was like pulling the plug on a motorcycle accident victim who was slowly recovering.

      Comics are niche, so most fans worldwide gave no fricks about this on account of not being aware of it at all.

      People also forget those are not even Lee characters, Spider-Man is from Dikto, Stan Lee was simply an editor, not even a co creator or co writer.

      The exact moment Dikto left the comic, every character personality change drastically and the comic go to a completely different direction out of nowhere. It's pretty clear that Stan Lee never did anything but approve what he thought was good and block what he thought would never sell.

          If you talk of Marvel, their bullshit time is always IN.
          Clone saga was mid 90s so Mayday would be five to ten and they've been wasting for decades her school chapters that never happen.
          If it happens in our measurement she's about to hit 30. Or already did.

    My only problem with it is that it sacrifices Peter's marriage. Outside of that, there is nothing wrong with the choice sacrifice an unborn for his aunt, considering he can always have more children later in life or just make a clone child using his DNA and MJ's. Honestly, Peter knows a bunch of fricking magical people who could probably help him out too.

    So it's honestly not that big of a deal in the long run.

          I don't think that's how it works anon, May is still with Osborn, Anne is still with Mephisto, if Peter makes MJ pregnant again it will be a third child

          Also at some point we will run out of villains to kidnap and raise Peter many lost daughters

            Theophrastus is a Greek moron considering animal sacrifice was normalized. In fact, in Ancient Roman times when you would go to cut down a tree you would be ordered to behead a pig as a sacrifice to the earth spirit and your ancestors as not to bring misfortune on you or your family for digging up the ground. If you got interrupted and pulled away from the act, you would have to do it again.

    It was approved because Marvel's editorial department post-bankruptcy was even more incompetent than they are now. As for why Lee defended it, he was probably just too old to care. He at least had the humility to undo it in the comic strip which means on some level he knew it was a bad move.

    >During the run, Marvel editor Nick Lowe responded to multiple fan requests to undo "One More Day". In Vol. 6 #35, when a fan asked if they got a lot of hate mail from the storyline, Lowe claimed, "We get fan mail, but we certainly don't get a lot of mail about "One More Day." That came out fifteen years ago... Most months, we don't get any letters about "One More Day." When we do a story with Peter and MJ, we sometimes get a dozen emails from fans who want them married again, like you. We get more letters from people talking about other things altogether!" In #38, he responds to a fan complaint about their relationship with, "I wouldn't hold your breath for "One More Day" to be undone anytime soon. I'll never say never, of course, because life is life."

    Imagine getting letters on a nearly monthly basis complaining about a twenty year old story and thinking that's normal.

      The impression I get is that OMD mostly stayed intact because of Slott (who stayed on ASM for like a decade) and editorial (Quesada was probably part of it, some people have speculated it's also Brevoort and some others; Wacker oversaw ASM and got into fights with people on CBR).

      I honestly can't tell if Lowe believes the stuff he does or if he's trying to put a smiling face on a bad situation.

      Either way remember when Slott was aggressively claiming that no way would the marriage be brought back, in the 2010s? He was claiming there were a lot of people in charge at Marvel who wanted to keep OMD/single Peter intact.

      Now it feels like he's less confident in that.

    He stopped following what was going on in the comic books and since he had control over the comic strip with Roy Thomas ghost-writing it, He and Roy just kept Peter married.

    IIRC I think someone said that his afterword in the OMD hardcover is a backhanded compliment toward Marvel. Did anyone save that?
