| > MJ doesn't know that Peter and Spider-Man are the same person. That means her memories (and presumably his memories) of their entire time together is altered to such a degree that what we saw in those original stories is no longer valid. So it's a whole lot more complicated than crossing out "wife" and putting in "girlfriend." You also have to cross out all dialogue that refers to Peter's double identity and replace it with Mephisto knows what. Then you also have to darken all the panels that show MJ cognizant that Peter is Spider-Man and redraw them. |
Im not sure if you're actually reading the comics or not but from everything we learned so far - it would appear that the memory wipe occured in the gap AFTER one more day but before Brand New Day. It would seem that Peter worked with someone else (Dr. Strange perhaps? logically that would work) to cast a spell - something magical that would wipe EVERYONES memory of his ID. This doesnt invalidate the previous stories from happening. It merely means that if you asked MJ about her last few years with Peter, she would have fuzzy memories as a result of whatever magical failsafe Peter put in place RECENTLY to make everyone forget his ID. The stories DID still happen - just with MJ as his girlfriend, not his wife. And as a result of the recent mindwipe, her memory would be fuzzy like Eddie Brocks was.
