I always find it pleasing to see others besides me voice my disgust over how they had Spidey make a deal with the devil.
The newspaper strip version reversed the deal and had it where it was all a dream Peter had. (thank you, Stan!)
Yet the comics for years have to suffer the stigma of a character that is meant for fans of all ages, this means KIDS too, gets so screwed up that he takes an easy out by making a faustian bargain. This is Spider-man, not Johnny Blaze.
In fact I am a bit surprised that Blaze or any of the other Ghost Riders don't sense some great sin hanging over Spiderman and zap him with the penance stare and see if that jogs his memory.
Also doesn't Dr Strange now sense something amiss with him?
As to fixing the Mephisto Mindwipe, well its been so long that some serious Deus ex machina writing is now needed. Some serious time travel, or the reality gem, or the time gem or the cosmic cube are needed at this point. Yet they don't fix the damage, while it is okay TWICE now for Tony Stark to be corrupted and turned evil (Crossing and Superior Iron Man) and the only fix for both was to kill him off and revive him via Deus Ex Machina writing. (Heroes Return, Secret War)
Nick Fury was once long ago believed killed by the Punisher but through some weak writing was brought back.
Yet they do not want to fix one of their flagship characters. Pathetic.
What they should do is negate the deal even if it means Aunt May finally dies...(Again!). Then they could have Peter and MJ spend a bit of time apart to deal with their issues over the matter then of course kiss and make up. Also the assorted heroes should learn of the deal and how the deal's affects may have impacted their own lives and seriously shun Spidey for a long time.
