> Even though time itself has been re-written, Joe Q continues to stress that everything you've read before happened. Except that they didn't get married. Apparently all those stories happened when they were living together. So it was better for Spidey to live in sin with a loose woman instead of in the bonds of matrimony? Huh. Let's hear it for free love!!!
> > > 3.JACKPOT
> The whole point of this was to tell stories that they couldn't do with a married Spidey. The only thing I can think of that meets that requirement is the new super heroine: Jackpot. She looks like Mary Jane, she talks like Mary Jane, is she Mary Jane? Who the hell cares? I think everyone has figured out that she's just some sort of misdirection. So the only thing that's different now, is that if it happened before Spider-man would try and find out who Jackpot is. Here he's made little effort to figure out who this woman who looks like his former lover is. Way to care. Perhaps his bachelor diet of ramen noodles and warm Pabst has eaten away at his brain?

Indeed it is, back then she was preparing to marry Harry, now she's a not-so-gay divorcee. The panels are from ASM #170 (July 1977) by Len Wein and Ross Andru, featuring Doctor Faustus as villain.
