Spiderman Is Single

Together for more than 20 years, a couple loved by many has called it quits. Peter Parker and Mary Jane, who were married in 1987 at Shea Stadium in New York, are no longer together as of this month. Joe Quesada, the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, has said that it was time to shake things up in Peter Parker’s life, and it would easier to do this if Spider-Man were single. It sounds as though Spidey is going through a mid-life crisis, but actually Mary Jane agreed to a bargain with Memphisto: He would restore Aunt May’s health, but all the world, including Mary Jane, would forget they knew of Spider-Man’s existence. The life of a superhero’s wife sounds rough. [Fox News]
