Bill Mantlo wanted to do a story involving Spidey fathering an illegitimate child but Shooter shot the idea down. In a 2000 interview from CBR, he had this to say:

"Then Bill Mantlo walks into my office one time and he's having a major war with whoever was his editor at the time. He's insisting he wants to do this story where Spider-Man fathers an illegitimate child and I said, no. Tell you what, do that same story, call him Arachnid Man, do it for Epic. And everybody will really know that it's Spider-Man. He said, "Why not?" I said, "Look, we have licensed Spider-Man for Underroos. We have things in the contract that say we won't do things like that." I said, "Can you imagine, on a slow news day, the president of Union underwear wakes up and there on CNN, they're talking about Spider-Man fathering an illegitimate child. All over the Bible Belt, Underroos are being pulled off the shelves. ... The people who own this company have put me here in order to keep you from doing that. Do that in the adult line for Epic. These just aren't our characters and we can't just mess around with them like that. We do have obligations. I didn't carve them, but they're there." "


Just imagine what Shooter would have to say for sacrificing his marriage for a Satanic pact, then.

But nobody has that kind of wisdom any more.

Kindest regards
-Jeremiah Ecks, who thinks marriage is overrated anyway.
