    Interesting. So the only reason Aunt May was going to die in the original timeline was because Mephisto distracted Peter in the first place. If Mephisto didn't intervene then Aunt May would have lived without the deal.

    What a dick!

I actually defended Joe on the whole "power of love" thing. I saw it as a natural thing you sometimes hear people say when things can't be explained (because it was Miphesto's magic) and I thought at the same time it was a nice nod to the events of OMD.
Turns out Joe actually meant for the story to be read as Peter saved her with CPR even though nothing in the world of medical science, nothing in Stark's world of ultra hightech pseudo-science, and nothing in Strange's world of magic(which has been seen to do just about anything) could possibly help. I mean they spent two whole issues building the logic that the only thing that could possibly save May was the intervention of the devil himself and then he goes and says completely differently. Not only does Joe not use any logic but he fights himself every step of the way as if he is intending to sabotage his own storytelling.
Stick to the pictures Joe, please.
