"One More Day"

Spider-Man’s “One More Day” story arc has been cloaked in secrecy, but the latest Comics Buyer’s Guide lifts the veil somewhat.
As we all know, Aunt May is dying. In “One More Day,” according to the Comics Buyer’s Guide, someone will give Peter Parker a choice: Aunt May will live, if he’s willing to have his marriage to Mary Jane vanish. As in all memories and evidence of that marriage gone.

Heart-wrenching? I would think so. But it also sounds as lame as Superman’s continuity-changing punches in DC’s “Infinite Crisis.” Or the long-ago dream season of “Dallas.” I’m hoping writer J. Michael Straczynski surprises us all and it’s not so simple as essentially waving an editorial wand and wiping out years and years of Spidey history.
