** The ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' series ''''[[ComicBook/RenewYourVows Amazing 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.

** So when you follow a fascist's (ComicBook/IronMan as he was then being written) suggestion to do away with keeping your superhero personality a secret and suffer the foreseeable consequences, you accept you made a mistake and--oh, wait, you sacrifice your loving wife and marriage--''to the devil''--because you can't accept responsibility? The editor thinks it's better than a divorce?! ''What.''

* HarsherInHindsight: Remember how Joe Quesada [[DiggingYourselfDeeper infamously said that]] people who wanted Mary Jane and Peter Parker to stick together would advocate for the latter to "grow old and die"? [[spoiler:Towards the end of ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' comic book, he does just that--albeit in the body and consciousness of Doctor Octopus, who takes over his form.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: Or maybe FunnyAneurysmMoment, hard to say. This isn't the only time they tried to "un-marry" Spider-Man--the [[DorkAge Clone Saga]] was originally supposed to be this. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen One of the ways they were going to fix that mess]] was to reveal the whole saga was a contest between the characters Judas Traveller and Scrier, the latter of whom turns out to be, you got it, ''Mephisto!'' Who would have put Spider-Man in a ShaggyDogStory StableTimeLoop just so he could claim Judas Traveller's soul. As the [[WordOfGod person who had the idea put it]] [[http://lifeofreillyarchives.blogspot.com/2008/03/part-22.html here]]:

*** Another take on it is that it was Quesada trying to save face with the story. OMD was meant to break up what he believed to be an unpopular pairing, with the general impression that the fanbase would be more than accepting of the change and would be OK seeing MJ take a reduced role in the series. To say the opposite happened would be an understatement. So the rationale that MJ was "the hero" of the story--which was made around the time of OMIT--was a way to try and save face with the story and make it seem like the controversial story was a victory for MJ rather than a defeat.

** Special mention has to go to how Peter expresses his despair when giving up his marriage, when he knows he must lose something that has so much value to him--"NYRAAARGH!"

*** 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.

This could have led to any number of stories where Spiderman has to work alongside Doom, but no.

* OlderThanTheyThink: There was a very similar plot during Creator/PeterDavid's run on ''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk''. Marlo, Rick Jone's girlfriend, is stabbed, and he starts to ask everyone for help: Dr. Strange (who pointed that [[NotThatKindOfMage his magic is useless with non-magical injuries]] in that story as well), Reed Richards, Dr. Pym, anyone. ReedRichardsIsUseless, as well as all the others. And, when he's in his deepest depair, he accepts the help of the only one who can save Marlo: the Leader (a Hulk villain who had commited genocide a short time before that), who has a {{Magitek}} idea in mind to help her.

** The ''Spider-Man'' newspaper comic strip had the ''same'' thing happen to Peter... and turned out to be AllADream.
** The entire BackStory of Series/{{Angel}} is about having to make a choice between love and death, resulting in Angel retconning his relationship away and becoming a monster to save his lover's life.

** One major example of this is in Issue 3. Just when the plot starts (sort of) going somewhere, it stops completely so Peter can talk to a video game designer, who goes off on a ''page long rant'' about how escapist entertainment is needed in today's times. It serves no purpose other than to stop the plot completely and act as [[AuthorFilibuster Quesada's own personal mouthpiece]]. It doesn't help, of course, that it's [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment never mentioned again]].

** The sheer ''idiocy'' displayed by the ''entire'' Marvel Universe sans Mephisto is maddening, especially since many heroes who have been able to solve far more absurd, unworldly problems, cannot fix something so simple as a bullet wound.

* AwesomeArt: The ''only'' remotely positive thing anyone will have to say about this story is that at least the drawings look nice. You can see Spidey sell his marriage to the devil in beautiful detail.

** Peter was too messed up to realize it at the time but even if he changed the past, one way or another, Aunt May will still eventually die anyway. The first is of old age which can happen at anytime. The second is that Mephisto made it so that Aunt May never died, that does not mean that he will also make it that Aunt May will never die so it was pointless to even make the deal in the first place.
