I basically have dropped the book. I like popping in here, but never start bashing if I do. Actually, one of the only threads I started was how much I enjoyed the recent gang story. I feel some of your comments should be directed at the review's author. I was just commenting.
In any case, I respect the choice of those who enjoy this. I don't agree with the Pete being in grief and turmoil as some type of an excuse for this though. Yes, I have been in grief, and made errors in judgment, but this is extreme. Pete isn't a teenager anymore. He's a grown man. I can practically see panels in many past spiderman comics where he'd make fun of someone making a deal with the devil. He knows the risks of this and his aunt is old. It just smacks of Joe Q wanting this, not something the character would really do. For that matter, Pete is supposed to be a great scientific mind and he doesn't seem to act like it.
