* AudienceAlienatingPremise: To sum it up: Marvel's 'Most Responsible Hero' loses his very aged mother-figure, and discovers that he can't fix it. Instead of coping with the loss, he gets his beloved wife to agree to delete their entire marriage (complete with unborn child), via an under-examined deal with the most deceitful and evil reality-warper he can find. [[SarcasmMode For some reason, the audience felt ripped off.]]

** This also did this for long term Spider-Man fans for the Spider-Man stories that came after. The circumstances of the deal and the fact that Post-OMD Peter doesn't know or remember his marriage or deal with Mephisto makes it less a story of a superhero than a guy trapped in a LotusEaterMachine a la ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' and ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', which more or less makes long term fans justifiably deprecate that run.

* {{Irony}}: Creator/JoeQuesada, one of the main authors of this comic, apparently loves ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl''...whose character could not exist without Peter and Mary Jane's marriage, something this comic undid.

* DesignatedHero: Peter makes a deal (or rather, guilt-trips Mary Jane into making a deal) with the devil to feel better about himself, despite it being healthier to accept he screwed up, despite his Aunt May's spirit telling him she is okay with dying, and despite the One-Above-All telling him to accept her death. (Note that the One-Above-All is not an expy of the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Judeo-Christian God (unlike Mephisto, who is a devil expy). He literally ''is'' the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Judeo-Christian God. The one that quietly devout Methodist Peter has been worshiping all his life. Yes, this character told ''GOD HIMSELF'' to screw off, made a deal with a greater demon, ignored all the maxims by which he's tried to live his life, and is ''still'' supposed to have our sympathy.)

*** Tying into this, one of the people he asks for help is '''Doctor Doom'''. Considering that in the past, Doom has been willing to help his mortal enemies just to show them up[[note]]At one point, he helped deliver Reed Richards's son just to show up Reed, with the only condition being that he got to name Reed's son[[/note]], odds are that he would gladly have helped Peter in return for a favor at a later point. This could have led to any number of stories where Spiderman has to work alongside Doom, but no.

** The ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' series ''Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows'' seems to exist to appeal to people that really didn't like the change. ''Renew Your Vows'' was later turned into an ongoing AlternateUniverse in 2016, with Gerry Conway writing and Ryan Stegman pencilling.

** When searching for ways to save his Aunt May, one of the people Peter talks to is Doctor Doom. They could've had Doom have a way to save Aunt May instead, and have Peter owe him a favor, which could lead to Peter having to fight the Avengers one day - including Iron Man, who Peter had sided with during the Civil War.

** Having been just rejected by Stark, Parker is willing to do anything to get the money needed to help May. Even if that means stealing it. Fortunately for him, that was not needed, and Stark ''did'' help, even if not directly.
