Not a hoax! Not a tease! Not a dream!
Wait — okay, actually, it was a dream.
As we reported at the beginning of 2009, the Spider-Man newspaper strip had followed the main comics’ Brand New Day in erasing the Spider-Marriage, by giving a soft reboot to the entire strip. No longer was Peter Parker a married man, but a swinging college student dating the lovely Mary Jane Watson.
Well, no longer. Stan Lee, “decid[ing] to bow to your letters,” has decided to write off the past five months as a dream, reuniting Spider-Man and Mary Jane as man and wife. “Aunt May? You’ve never called me that before!” I won’t spoil an easy joke for you, only because Comics Curmudgeon beat me to it.
