> Let's be real. No one cares that Peter sold out to the devil. We only care because of who he chose to save.

I think you are confusing the fact that many people dropped the title with the fact that many people are unhappy with the deal with the devil.
Many of us (myself included) don't like the idea of a good guy making a deal with an embodiement of evil for any reason. But I don't think many people claimed that the deal itself was the dealbreaker (pardon the pun).

> I think you people who claim to be angry at this deal with the devil are total hypocrites because you have seen this type of plot device so many times but only now do you stop to bitch about it

Jeez, dude, what's with the attitude? But yeah, the plot device of a Faustian bargain isn't new. It's just that only in Spider-Man does the hero of the story get off without having to face the consequences of their actions.
