*** [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall In a nice touch,]] the highly trained Force users can ''sense'' that things are not as they should be, though they don't quite know what is going on. They just know the Force is going ''nuts''.

*** [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall In a nice touch,]] the highly trained Force users can ''sense'' that things are not as they should be, though they don't quite know what is going on. They just know the Force is going ''nuts''. Also interesting, each scenario still results in the forces of Good defeating Evil, just with the plots changed significantly. (In fact, each ending may have actually been ''better'' [[BittersweetEnding if slightly bittersweet]].)

** And one of the more interesting playarounds in this series is an issue in which [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom Dr. Doom]] never suffers the accident that injured him and twisted him into a supervillain. Rather, he becomes a ''superhero'', and life actually goes from strength to strength for him. On the other hand, once again, it is his own ego that causes the driving complication of his life.

In her home universe, ''she'' was the one bitten by the spider, whereas Peter Parker became the Lizard. Whether or not it's a side-effect of the aforementioned change, several Marvel characters are revealed to have undergone changes in her universe that differentiate them from their 616 counterparts. Matt Murdock never became Daredevil and works as a lawyer for the Kingpin; Ben Grimm never became a pilot, and is now an [=NYPD=] officer, whose beat just happens to be his home-neighborhood of Yancy Street; Frank Castle is also still on the force, and doesn't appear to have lost his family (yet); and, of course, Captain Stacy is still alive. One of the most notable changes, however, would have to be Mary Jane; she went from a lovable party girl to an arrogant AttentionWhore, likely because her interactions with Peter were what made her a better person in the first place.
