It retconned the Civil War reveal and removed Peter and MJ's marriage because reasons.>How did MJ make that deal
Fuck if I know.>Why did Mephisto take the deal
Because he wanted their love for some fucking reason?
It's been years since OMD/OMIT happened, and I doubt many of us have it figured out.
Oh, I forgot to mention: Dr. Strange was unable to fix Aunt May's sniper bullet to her waist, but he was able to keep Mary Jane in stable condition despite being shot in the goddamn head and/or face.>>89450763
I'm sure there were better ways of accomplishing that.
Which reminds me: JMS had a better idea for OMD in which he wouldn't have retconned Peter and MJ's wedding. Rather, he had planned for Harry Osborn to go into rehab for his drug problems, which would have subsequently never led to him becoming the Green Goblin. Ultimately, it would have also brought Gwen Stacy back to life as well, as she never would have died.
But I guess bringing back Gwen is far too radical an idea for Marvel, so they chose to just have the implication that Peter and MJ had a child out of wedlock.
