One of the best stories ever written, but I think from that moment on Mary Jane and Peter were destined to get married. We had the perfect triangle between Gwen, Peter and Mary Jane. One which could have been exploited for years to come.
Despite a number of classic and character-defining stories greeting the beginning of the decade by the likes of writers J. DeMatteis or even David Michelinie on his better daysthat era was plagued for years by Marvel resisting the simple conceit that Peter Parker was designed by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko to grow and evolve.

Straczynski, a self-described atheist although one fascinated with religioncan hardly be accused of proselytizing by including a little divine intervention in this story. This positive turn of events can be viewed as one of God's "tender mercies," and mirrors the themes of countless acclaimed and beloved works of fiction depicting miraculous events which signal the lovingkindness of the Lord spoken of in Psalms.

Of course, in a world where a spider-bite can give a person super-strength, speed, agility, wall-crawling powers and spider-sense limited precognitive abilitiesit might be possible that the lightning strike which allowed Peter to meet up with Mary Jane was just a coincidence.
But that seems like a stretch of the imagination, even in the Marvel Universe. Below is the text from this scene, pages 16 and 19, in The Amazing Spider-Man volume 2issue 49, written by J. After everything I've put him through, would he even want me? Just a little longer. This was a mistake. I should never have come.

He holds a magazine in front of him, but dosn't read it. He stares into space, lost in thought, a miserable look on his face. Before we take off you should familiarize yourself with the emergency insructions-- [Mary Jane is shown in her seat on an airplane.

I'm getting irregular readings on the electrical system. I think so, but I'm not sure. I wouldn't want to risk it, though, not on a flight this long.

New York City, Written by Brian Michael Bendis. Pencils by Mark Bagley. Inks by Art Thibert. Peter Parker is, once again, feeling considerably put upon because of the many problems in his life. His girlfriend Mary Jane Watson recently broke up with him, and at about the same time he met Felicia Hardy, a cat burglar known as the "Black Cat. Although very much in love with Mary Jane, Parker wondered what it would be like to be romantically involved with the Black Cat.Tony Stark Recruits Peter Parker - "Responsibility" Civil War Scene Full HD - Tom Holland
Later, Mary Jane runs away because of the constant verbal abuse from her manifestly atheist father. Peter Parker is very worried about Mary Jane. Among the many thoughts that go through his head while he worries about her, he wonders if God is punishing him for entertaining the idea of being with the Black Cat. Peter Parker's thoughts as he goes to Mary Jane Watson's bedroom and sees for himself that she has run away are as follows: Where on earth could you have possibly gone?
Well, this is a nightmare. What is she thinking? Did she leave town? Did she leave me too? I-- I knew she was bummed out and going through stuff with her dad but this is insane. This is so out there for her. She's really this messed up?
I should never have told her I was Spider-Man. Nick Fury was right -- I should never have told her. Clearly she can't handle it. She's very-- she needs to talk to a professional or something is what she needs to do. This is God punishing me for even entertaining the idea of that crazy Black Cat woman. Who knew MJ was even capable of--? After these thoughts go through Peter Parker's mind, suddenly inspiration hits him and he realizes where Mary Jane must be. He heads straight to the abandoned warehouse which they think of as their "little private hiding place" and sure enough, Mary Jane is there.
She is cold and despondent, but Peter is relieved that he found her. Among his many troubled thoughts is the question: Is this a sign from God that he should quit being a super hero?
Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)/Quotes
Peter Parker wonders if his losing his Spider-Man costume for the second time in a row is a message from God. Text from Peter's thoughts in this scene is below. I have no costume. I am a super hero without a costume. I don't even have a cool leather outfit that would pass for "costume-ish" in this more cynical world I live in. And even if I did, short people shouldn't wear leather. That must be a rule of life. And if it isn't, clearly it should be.
Another rule of life should be that teenage super heroes on a very fixed income should make a point of holding onto their costumes during elaborate fight sequences. How can I make a costume if I can't sew! I can't hire someone to make a costume. I don't even know where you get tights from. If I order them online or something, Aunt May will totally get the package before I do.
And who even knows if they'll fit if I buy them online?

I draw the line at ill-fit and schlubby. When I was dating Mary Jane, she could whip up a Spidey costume for me in a second. I got my original costume from that wrestling organization I was wrestling for when I first got my powers. Maybe they have extra and I can steal some. I mean, borrow some. Maybe I can get the costume from the jerk who was running around dressed as me robbing banks.

Maybe someone up there is telling me not to wear a costume, or not to be a super hero. Maybe I was late to class and I didn't eat lunch. Michael Straczynski, pencilled by John Romita, Jr. Servant of the Gods On a number of occasions, Spider-Man has been chosen as a servent of various religious figures and deities. An example of this took place in Peter Parker: In this two-issue story, the Buddhist deity Tara or at least a woman with a connection to Tara, or who sees herself as Tara's representative enlists Spider-Man's help.
In one scene during this story, Spider-Man contemplates the relative frequency with which he is enlisted as an agent of "metaphysical" beings. It's not often you find yourself swinging aimlessly around the city waiting for a major Buddhist deity to buzz you on your psychic cell phone.
You figure the Gods must have this really enormous copy of the Yellow Pages which they open at random whenever they get bored or needy. My listing is no doubt in the well-worn section under "Bleeding Heart. Either that, or some Bangladeshi ultra-chick with a great taste in super heroes has found a new and very meaningful way to pass the time. He gave Spider-Man a rune, explaining "That rune you have will summon me in an instant should Tess be in danger.
The final page of this two-issue story arc shows Spider-Man swinging home, with an image the Asgardian god Loki in the background. This story was written by J.
Perhaps Spider-Man also felt he had a patron Asgardian god, or simply a new friend? Is there a mystical, totemistic aspect to Spider-Man's powers?
Ezekiel along with writer J. Michael Straczynski certainly seems to think so. After bringing Peter Parker Spider-Man to Africa in order to rescue him from the other-dimensional Shathra the mystical embodiment of a spider waspEzekiel tries to explain a side to his spider powers that he has never really considered before, and does not yet completely believe in now.
The follow panels and text are from the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man volume 2, issue 49, written by J. Okay, I know you don't want to hear this but pay attention, deal with it, because this is important. I know you're scientifically inclined, and I know you don't want to believe that your powers are in any way totemistic in nature or origin. But the paranormal or the unexpected is in every aspect of life. Church, physics, metaphysics, crop circles, Thunder Gods, Sorcerers Supreme, out of body experiences, extra-dimensional travel, the soul, art, music, Gaia, big green - sometimes gray - guys who should've died in gamma bomb bursts but just got real strong instead.
You can't isolate yourself from the whole world, and say noone of it has anything to do with you just because that's the way you want it. Maybe the spider that bit you was intended for you alone, maybe it was sent, maybe it was operating in a larger context. That's a connection going in to something more, something bigger. Maybe the spider had nothing behind it at all, no meaning, no intent, no context, it just webbed its way into the wrong place at the wrong time.
But that scientific event tapped into ideas and constructs and racial memories and powers that were here long before science showed up. The Ashanti have stories of a Spider-Man that go back centuries. You could look it up. It's An if you can't hear the H, it's A if you can. An hour, A horse. Who's telling this story, me or you? I'm trying to explain that one way or another, whether it was intended or you backed into it, you've tapped into something old, something important!
Don't you have anything to say about that? If you try to deny what's going on, you just make yourself vulnerable to whatever comes at you next from the spider side of you. You're tying one arm behind your back. Look, Ezekiel, I'm not denying that there's been a lot of weirdness in my life lately. But I'm just not there yet, I don't believe yet. I'm hardwired a certain way. I can't change that just because you say I should. I'm just trying to help, that's all.
I've been a parallel road to yours for a long time, and I have the advantage of being able to see down the road a bit to what's coming. I'm trying to straighten out some of the curves coming your way. Michael Straczynski, features an awesome story that takes Spider-Man back to many of his greatest battles.
Spider-Man has teamed up with Doctor Strange during this adventure, and afterwards gives Peter a mystical birthday gift.
Peter opens it up on the rooftop of his apartment building, revealing that the gift is a visit from Peter's beloved Uncle Ben, whose death at the hands of a robber set Peter on the path to becoming Spider-Man. Peter's visit with the spirit of Uncle Ben is an incredible moving scene, but is best appreciated after having read the entire issue.
Dialogue from this visit is shown below, from: Well, sure, who else would it be? I was just coming back to May, we'd had a fight, and I was walking in the door, and. I know it should mean something, but strangely, it doesn't. You look good, Pete. You look great, Uncle Ben. God, there's so many things I want to tell you. There's nothing you need to be forgiven for, Pete. You know what would disappoint me?
If you didn't reach for the kind of life I wanted for you. If you settled for less because you were afraid of reaching for more. If you walked away from what you believe, even once.
Have you done that? Then I taught you right, and your life has meaning. But the thing is. I've done things, Ben, I've got. There's stuff you need to know. And there you're right. There's one question I have to ask you, Peter.
So I can sleep easy. Whatever it is you do now, whatever it is you've become, tell me this, Peter. We all go through pain, we all lose people we care about, we all suffer, we all get hurt. It's the price of being human. But at the end of the day. Are you happy, Peter? Jonah Jameson behind him. The image symbolizes Peter's life. It's the damndest thing, but. I have a good life, Ben. A real good life. Sometimes I don't realize just how good, and how lucky. Then that's the only thing that matters, isn't it?
Maybe that is the right question. But I still miss you, Ben. God knows, I've missed you so much. I've missed you too, Peter. I love you, you know. I love you too, Ben. Take care of May for me. I always have, and I always will. He lowers his arms slowly. We next see him back in the apartment, where he has gone to sit on the edge of the bed.
Mary Jane Watson is still awake, as she was reading a book. So, did you have a nice stroll on the roof?
I find that a moonlit walk helps clear my head. It sure did this time. I love you, MJ. God, I love you so much. I want you to know that. Every night and every morning. I love you too, Peter. My lover, my husband, my best friend. Blue The framing device for the incredibly beautiful and emotionally moving 6-issue limited series Spider-Man: Blue has Peter Parker in the attic of his Aunt May's home, where he is going through some of his old things.
He uses an old tape recorder to record memories of his first true love, the late Gwen Stacy. Peter speaks as if talking directly to Gwen, recounting events from the time they had together.
Blue 6, Marvel Entertainment Group: For years I've tried to make some sense of your death. Something -- anything -- that I could call "good" that came after all that. And all the time I've been sitting up here talking to you, I remembered something I don't think I've told anyone. The night of your funeral. I just wasn't up for that "Life is a party and MJ is the cake" thing. But, something happened that night. I think now your death was MJ's wake-up call -- that we weren't going to live forever and the party was going to end.
Gwen, I don't think Mary Jane Watson could've had a serious relationship with me until she realized how much we all lost with you gone. She would later become my wife. How long have you been listening.
I didn't mean for you to hear. I just came up to make sure you were okay. Will you do me a favor, Peter? Say "Hello" for me and -- tell Gwen I miss her to.
The tape recorder continues to record, recording only silence for some moments. She says, "Hi" and I. I should get going. I guess when I try and sum up how I get -- how I feel sometimes around this time of year [Valentines Day].
Not like I've been dipped in with the Tidy Bowl Man, but like in music, in jazz. And I long for a time when a girl I knew with an incredible smile and so much good in her heart made me think. Oh, that Spidey, what a mensch! While no one at Marvel comics would admit it - at least publicly - the webs that our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man weaves are laced with stories and lessons taken right out of Jewish culture - so much so that one borough rabbi believes that Peter Parker is actually a child of Abraham.
Speaking from the Pratt Institute campus in Clinton Hill, Weinstein can spend all day spinning similarities between the Stan Lee character and Jewish history and culture, even though the eight legged creatures aren't kosher. According to the passage, David was in the wilderness being chased by King Saul's guards when he ducked into a cave. As he hid, a spider spun a web at the mouth of the cave. When a guard went to inspect the opening, he saw the web and determined that David couldn't be in there.
In his book, Weinstein writes about his belief that "Old Web Head's" story is fueled by a deep, post-Holocaust sense of Jewish guilt. But there are some other connections that are just too stereotypical to ignore. He's also been called a Jerry Seinfeld with webbing. But yet he rips off his clothes and he's a superhuman being. But Spider-Man is not the only comic book character to be infused with Jewish values. Superman, Captain America, the Spirit, Batman and the Incredible Hulk who Weinstein calls a gamma-radiated golem all have Jewish themes woven into their masks, capes and cowls and - in the Hulk's case - loincloths.
Today, there may be fewer Jewish comics creators than in the past, but they are still making their mark in what has become an American institution struggling for legitimacy. The hot list - talents whose names on the cover are likely to ensure a title's popularity - includes writer Peter Allan David Supergirl, DC, and The Incredible Hulk, among others ; British import Neil Gaiman, writer of the award-winning The Sandman Vertigo, a DC imprinta series subtly peppered with midrashim; and author-illustrator Brian Michael Bendis, who in an article on his Web site, www.
In the late 's and 's, comics' Silver Age, conformist heroes gave way to a more diverse comic world. Stan Lee and Marvel introduced a new type of "real-life" hero with the wall-crawling teenage Spider-Man who worried about money and social acceptance as well as how to defeat the many-limbed Doctor Octopus.

In the 70's and 80's, Jews started appearing, sometimes with a beard and a hat in a crowd scene, sometimes as minor heroes. Shadowcat showed up around that time, too The Amazing Spider-Man Augustpage So if I were you, I'd start praying right about now to try and convince God to give her every possible second of life.
But to tell you the truth, in your position, I wouldn't count too much on God if I were you. See you around, Mr. In this story, Peter Parker is afraid that his beloved Aunt May who was shot by a sniper might die. Aunt May lies in a coma in a hospital and does not appear to be getting better. Peter Parker contacts an associate of his, Madame Web, a clairvoyant medium. I'd like to discuss what religious beliefs are favorite costumed hero's belong to. Everyone knows Daredevil is Catholic.
But beyond that, what do we know of superhero's beliefs? I'm thinking of mostly the Marvel Universe, but you DC fans feel free to contribute as well America are New York Protestants born and raised. Peter may be a lapsed church goer, but I always got the feeling that if Steve Rogers could find more time, he'd be in church every Sunday Which with my friends, it always does! Thing to remember though that until recently, like the past decade, religion and talks of such were verboten in most main stream comic books.
Someone has WAY too much time on their hands. Matt O'Keefe Peter Parker would be less relatable to if they gave him one religion.
