In fairness, Peter has lost 'all his stuff' so many times now, it's irrelevant. He lost it, a) in a fire that bombed his apartment back in the 80's, b) when he became homeless when MJ was presumed dead, c) when Charlie Weidermann blew everything to hel.
And everything at Aunt May's blew up too.
Seriously, Peter can't have anything of personal value left. It's very, very depressing.
who finds it hard to root for someone who is clearly struck with such bad fortune. It's almost self-abusive.
You make a great point of Peter having pretty much lost "all of his stuff" in previous stories. And I agree that he really shouldn't have anything more to lose.
That still doesn't answer my question- did he somehow buy more stuff (how?) during the "time gap" in Big Time? Or was it an editorial oversight (which would be kind of disappointing, but not surprising, given it had just occurred a few issues before)?
