2/28 - Curious Cat Asks...

The biggest reason given for revealing Spider-Man's identity to the public was that it opened up so many new stories. But then, Spider-Man turned on Iron Man for reasons other than his secret identity being revealed. And according to the latest Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Peter Parker is establishing a new identity in New York while he continues being Spider-Man as a unlicensed hero. So, what then, exactly, is the reason, story-wise, for having Spider-Man reveal his secret identity, if the revelation is not really impacting the books as much as the "fugitive Spider-Man" angle, which, while a fine plot idea on its own, does not require a public identity to have said plot?
