Subj: Things That I Do NOT Want To(o?) See From The New Relaunch. What About You?

I might check out this new relaunch if I have enough money (I usually buy cheap back issues (Some of which are fairly recent.), or when my comic store has a sale, or the occasional issue because of certain characters/hype/writers/relaunches, etc.), but I don't know why Spider-Man is getting relaunched from scratch AGAIN! If you ask me, they should have pretty much ended the series after One More Day, made that story kind of like Spider-Man's "Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow.", and did what DC did with Superman. Because for all intents and purposes, Spider-Man lost. He literally made a deal with the Devil, and once a hero does something like that, there's no coming back. It's like a judge taking a bribe or a cop who shakes someone down for money. Once you do that, you can't be a judge or a cop anymore, and Peter can't be Spider-Man, because for all intents and purposes he lost. So they should have ended it there, and picked and choosed what they wanted, like the John Byrne relaunch.

Annnyyyhhhoowww, since we're getting a whole new thing/status quo/ and a new beginning again, here are some things that I definitely do NOT want to(o) see from what's upcoming.

#No more Norman Osborn- Seriously, nothing more with Norman Osborn. No more Osborn legacy, no more retcons with Osborn, etc. As a HUGE fan of Norman, I'm just tired of the guy already, and I wish that they would kill him for good. This whole Osborn legacy aspect of the mythos has been overexpanded and played out too the point where it's tedious reading any more backstories about him, how he screwed up Harry, and Peter thinking about, or coming close to(o) killing him. And with Dark Reign, Norman REALLY needs a rest. Maybe he should have stayed dead.

#No More Goblin Nonsense- No more Goblin-like characters like Menace, or any other varities like Jack O'Lanterns, etc. We have too many of these guys. And frankly, I don't even know which Jack O'Lantern is still alive and running around.

#No More Gwen Stacy Or Trips To The Brooklyn Bridge- Or The George Washington Bridge (Although the Verrazona and Staten Island.). Peter has been to that dam bridge way too many times, and pined over Gwen Stacy way too many times. Which he should, but he's lost plenty of other people as well (Captain Stacy, Jean DeWolff, and Harry Osborn until he came back.). Of course he should remember Gwen Stacy, but keep her dead, don't even tease about her coming back, she's dead, no more clones (Whatever happened to her clones anyhow?), nothing.

#No More Oh Poor Aunt May- This needs too go as well. I prefer it if she would have stayed dead, but since they brought her back, the dynamic when she knew Peter's secret identity again was better. Now it's back to "Oh no, Aunt May is in ill health, and she might discover my secret identity.". Just have her know already. At least she's married. But the whole point of Aunt May being in the dark about Peter's identity, and her ill health is/has gotten old.

A few more, but those top four are the primaries:

#I would like too see Peter (Or Whoever this New Spider-Man is.) NOT be on the Avengers or Fantastic Four teams. One title alone should be enough, and Peter works better alone, or with an assist from a friend on occasion.

#I don't want there to be any more new/other Spider-Girl's, Spider-Woman, etc.

I can think of a few more things (Like no more Venoms or symbiotes as well.), but I'm sure that we each have our own. But the top 4, 5, and no more symbiotes are the main problems. Now, what about you guys?
