Here's another couple that's been through hell...literally. Poor Peter Parker and Mary-Jane Watson. For years they've been a staple in the Marvel universe, proving that superheroes can still be super and domesticated at the same time. But no! Some creators, who I don't really need to name, decided that they need to have their heroes be put through the wringer, and have them be as miserable as possible and not have any kind of normal life whatsoever! So much so that Spider-Man had to make a deal with Mephisto to save his dying, elderly aunt. What deal you ask? Well that would be telling wouldn't it?...the deal was to negate all the years of his marriage with Mary-Jane! Did someone order a deus ex machina with a side bullcrap? You know, if you didn't want Spidey to married, there are much better ways of going about it. This was just a bad move on Marvel's part, so much so that it's still a sore subject for fans to this day, like me!
