*** 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.

* 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.
