Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada knows how to get fans attention – particularly, it seems, when it comes to the Amazing Spider-Man. After four days of debate-filled responses to the Marvel’s honcho’s exploration of his work on the recent “One Moment In Time” story line, he’s back again on CBR for the final inside look at the final fate of Peter Parker.
With Mephisto’s role in the unmarrying of Peter and Mary Jane now effectively “omitted” from Spidey lore, CBR News swings its week-long, in-depth commentary on one of the most controversial Spider-Man stories ever told towards the most recent chapters of “O.M.I.T.”
Below, we’ll go inside the “One Moment In Time” arc from Quesada and artist Paolo Rivera’s “Amazing Spider-Man” #638 – 641 and the drastic changes to the Spider-Man continuity and status quo they helped usher in. In part five of our talk (read part one, part two, part three and part four), Quesada revisits his own work both creatively and editorially from the viewpoint that shook the Marvel Universe in the wake of “Civil War” to the fate of secret identities at Marvel to the final pages of “One More Day” and what they mean in the wake of “O.M.I.T.”
Kiel Phegley: So here we are, the last chapter.
Joe Quesada: Is it Friday already? I’m going to miss you, Kiel. I’m going to miss everyone on CBR.
Kiel Phegley: Can you hold it together for just a bit?
Joe Quesada: I’ll try, but I get real emotional at times like this. It’s a separation thing.
