    When they KNOW the fanbase is torn on "who should our hero be with?" plots like this, having the old love-interest turn into a gushing shill for the new one is the most absolutely obnoxious thing the writer can do, saying "Look, see how much better this is, because I said so, and I can abuse my power to even have the old love-interest agree with me!"

    See also: Jean Grey and The Vision respectively endorsing Frost and Wonder Man over themselves. Literally every time I see a writer do this, I have to reign in the urge to yell "Oh, screw you!" out loud right there in the comic shop.

    At least Quicksilver gets to think Ronan's a tool, I guess.

Total agreement. I'd be more inclined to like Carly if Mary Jane hated her (out of jealousy because she recognized that Carly is a better fit for Peter).
