14ONE MORE DAY
One of the few bright spots in Peter Parker's life has been his relationship with Mary Jane. That's why 2007's "One More Day" (J. Michael Straczynski, Joe Quesada) crossover triggered so much controversy. In the crossover event "Civil War," Parker's Aunt May was shot and left on the verge of
death. Spider-Man, desperate to save his beloved aunt's life, agreed to a deal with the supernatural villain Mephisto. In exchange for saving her, Mephisto altered history so Parker and MJ were never married.
While the idea of getting rid of one of Marvel's most beloved marriages was enough to get fans upset, the outcome was even less loved. It was hard to figure out what storylines still existed, much less how to explain their history without MJ. That may be why Marvel created Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, a series set in an alternate reality where the couple stayed together.
