    Quote:
    For me the MJ aspect was the most troubling of "Sins Past". And it didn't even make sense that Gwen would confide in her of all people, since they were never portrayed as that close friends. I suppose JMS needed someone to act as a witness to events and was too lazy to go to the trouble of bringing in an additional character (e. g. a hitherto unknown friend of Gwen or even one of her relatives).


Well, Gwen and MJ have been retconned into being best friends in various stories after Gwen's death. (For example, during the 1990s Clone Saga, Clone Gwen refers to MJ as the real Gwen's best friend.) This kind of reinterpretation has happened with other characters as well. Jarvis has been retconned into having raised Tony Stark, even though they had few meaningful interactions before the Crossing. (Demon in a Bottle is the exception.) And various writers have tried to retcon Tony into being alcoholic pre-Demon in a Bottle.
