> > ...in Joe Quesada's mind Spider-Man divorcing would be (ten times? a hundred times? a thousand times?) worse than getting into bed with the devil. Not that JQ is against divorce per se, after all look at Harry Osborn. But to keep things grounded in reality he only okayed Harry being turned into a triple divorcé. Because, like, four divorces would have been ridiculous. ;-P

It seems to be like the only reasons they didn't divorce them was because it might make him seem older and that it could be bad press in the mainstream media. Of course you'd think if they were worried about bad press in conservative Christian USA they might not have gone with him making a deal with a demon.
