Be that as it may, the revised version IMO still is even less palatable, because now in addition to the general objections that you don't make deals with the/a devil because he'll invariably screw you over, you now have a situation where the arguments against giving in to a blackmailer apply. Plus of course that the way things turned out would seem to indicate that Mephisto can alter reality without bothering to get the consent of the persons affected - he prevented Peter from being there to save Aunt May's life - so why didn't he simply prevent the wedding and marriage as it happened, e.g. by striking a deal with Chubby Muerte to free him, if such a minute change was all it took?
